A spectacular natural setting for 27 holes
Is Molas Golf Club has set the standard for golfing in Sardinia for over thirty years.
The project for the course and club was conceived in the early Seventies and the design was entrusted to the prestigious Cotton, Pennink & Partners studio. The golf club was opened in 1975 and proved a great resource for southern Sardinia from the very outset.
In 1976 Is Molas Golf Club staged the Italian Open for the very first time. The exciting and hard-fought tournament saw Baldovino Dassù triumph over finalists Pinero and Mason.
The second Italian Open was held in 1982 and won by M. James. Is Molas’s reputation grew through the Eighties, when the championship course was ranked one of the top 100 in the world. In 1989 the club played host to the Volvo Master, won by the then rising star Vijay Singh.
In 1999 the course was extended to include the Yellow Course, designed by Franco Piras, Associated Designer and representative of Gary Player Design for the Mediterranean. The Italian Open was staged in Sardinia again in 2000 and 2001 by Is Molas Golf Club and Polter and Havret won the tournament respectively.
In the summer of 2005 Is Molas Golf Club celebrated its thirtieth anniversary and continues to host international events such as the European Teams Girl Championship, the Alps Tour and the Italian International Amateur Championship.
Is Molas Golf Club has a clubhouse with a restaurant, bar and pool, a complete and functional practice course with thirty tees, bunkers and other obstacles which reproduce the conditions of the championship course.
The putting and pitching greens, which are large and well-tended, are set amidst spontaneous vegetation typical of Sardinia.

Dan Williamson, who can boast four generations of golf instructors in his family, has set up his academy at Is Molas, the only one in Sardinia that uses Dartfish technology for digital analysis of your swing. Dan organises group courses, corporate events and personalised lessons to improve your technique and learn how to get the most out of your equipment.
