Royal Golf La Bagnaia Launches New Website

Royal Golf La Bagnaia has launched a new website dedicated to showcasing both the golf club and wider aspects of the stunning Tuscan resort such as the on-site Curio Collection by Hilton Hotel and the beautiful Tuscan region that surrounds. Created by London-based agency 301 Design, the website transmits the sense of uniqueness and individuality guests can only find at La Bagnaia. It presents an easy platform to navigate and to learn more about this unique resort.

Surrounded by the beautiful Sienese countryside, La Bagnaia is a tranquil oasis set against a landscape scattered with charming medieval hamlets and towns. The golf course, designed by the award-winning architect Robert Trent Jones Jnr, and opened in 2009, is draped across the rolling Siena hills and offers a unique inland links experience with undulating fairways and sweeping fescue roughs. Expansive practice facilities include a short game and pitch & putt area and the Clubhouse, a painstakingly restored Tuscan farmhouse, overlooks the 18th green, and provides golfers with an authentic and luxurious place to relax and enjoy the views towards ancient Sienna whilst sampling the finest Tuscan ingredients and produce. IMG has been providing management and marketing services to Royal Golf La Bagnaia since 2018.

Brodie Macdonald, General Manager at Royal Golf La Bagnaia commented: “We’re really excited with the new website and very pleased with the final result. Royal Golf La Bagnaia is one of the finest courses in the country and considering our international strategy to promote the resort, we felt it was the right time to invest in a new platform which will help us showcase the facilities to a global audience”.

Through the website golfers will have access to a complete course guide and will be able learn more about the surrounding Tuscan attractions and also book tee-times directly with the golf club. As Italy prepares to host the 2022 Ryder Cup, it’s time to learn more and become part of Royal Golf La Bagnaia.

Royal Golf La Bagnaia welcomes a new Head Teaching Professional

The 2020 golf season at the first Tuscan 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr is bringing some important news for Italian and international golf players and Royal Golf La Bagnaia is delighted to welcome the new Head Professional, Alessio Bruschi, to this 130-hectare golf course set in the heart of Tuscany.

After an illustrious amateur career, Alessio turned Professional in 2004. From 2004 to 2012 he was part of the Italian Professional National Team and, during these years played around 130 tournaments between Alps Tour, Challenge Tour and European Tour. In 2013, Alessio won the Italian National Championship, held at Royal Golf La Bagnaia.
In 2015 Alessio began to switch his attention and focus towards teaching golf with an appetite to learn from some of the game Masters and some of the greatest European coaches and has also completed the “Dr Kwon’s Golf Biomechanics Instructor Training Program”.

Alessio is a regular attendee of the PGA Merchandise show having attended the PGA show in Orlando the past 4 years. Alessio prides himself on continual coaching, learning and development that he achieves by participating in seminars and innovative courses relating to various golf aspects, such as the renowned Jim McLean Golf School Academy.
Certified for the most sophisticated and precise swing-analysis systems such as TrackMan 4, BodiTrak pressure plate, MySwing 3D analysis and Capto software for putting analysis, Alessio brings these modern technologies to his daily lessons.

Undoubtedly passionate about his role as a teacher and as a player, Bruschi enjoys helping his students improve their game almost as much as he enjoys playing golf himself. Whether he is introducing a beginner to the thrill of a purely-struck shot, watching active players progress and improve their games or helping a competitive player prepare for their next competition, Alessio is very skilled in laying out the steps and fundamentals that are required to take the student’s game to the next level.

A lesson guided by Alessio becomes truly unique at the Royal Golf La Bagnaia, the course that is perfectly harmonized with the gentle hills of Siena. The Tuscan landscape is a typical example of Inland Links, which refer to the Scottish Highlands with the “Rough” swaying in the wind. The course is enriched by beautiful lakes and a majestic Club House, from where you can enjoy a unique view on all 18 holes.

Alessio is available for lessons at Royal Golf La Bagnaia from Thursday to Sunday and is welcoming players of all levels, beginners to competitive players, making this also a perfect opportunity for the Resort guests curious about the world of golf.

Nestled in the enchanting Tuscan countryside and surrounded by incredible views over rolling hills and cypress trees La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort Siena, Curio Collection by Hilton connects its guests to the very heart of Tuscany. Once a medieval village, the Resort is a tranquil hideaway full of history, preserved across a 1,100-hectare estate. Featuring a spa with thermal waters, an 18-hole golf course, restaurants, bars, lush gardens and authentic experiences, the Tuscan accommodations provide the perfect getaway while the location is ideal for exploring Tuscany, with UNESCO World Heritage City of Siena, San Gimignano, Chianti and San Galgano Abbey a short ride away. The Resort is the first Italian Curio Collection by Hilton property, welcoming its guests in a world of captivating stories.
