Costa Cruises is the official cruise line for the 2023 Ryder Cup. The world’s most famous golf competition, in Italy for the first time in 2023, will roll out at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, which is in Guidonia about 25 kilometres north-east of Rome, from 29 September to 1 October. 

Cruises for golfing enthusiasts and families

To mark the announcement of this partnership Costa has launched its brand new Cruise & Golf formula, designed for golf enthusiasts and their families. This allows guests to combine a unique golf experience with the relaxation and fun of a cruise aboard the Costa Smeralda, while playing in some of the most beautiful golf clubs in Italy, France and Spain, as the ship stops at its various ports of call. Meanwhile, the families on vacation with the golfing buffs will be able to enjoy the services on board, or go ashore and explore with the customised excursions organized by the company.

Promoting golf clubs and helping local tourism

“Our cruise holidays aim to create unique and enriching experiences, and the union with golf fits perfectly with this philosophy. To achieve our goal of becoming the reference company for the world of golf, we have embraced a special and unique initiative: the partnership with the Ryder Cup 2023, one of the most popular sporting events in the world, “ says The Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Roberto Alberti. “Our Cruise & Golf sailings will help promote golf courses in the countries we visit and they will also help local tourism, considering that six out of ten passengers say they want to return to the destinations they visited on a cruise.”

Packages include three or four green fees

The new Cruise & Golf offer will be available from May 2022 on Costa Smeralda with week-long cruises in the western Mediterranean, stopping in Savona, Marseille, Barcelona, ​​Palma de Mallorca, Palermo and Civitavecchia/Rome, and reservations will open on 1 February. To take advantage of the new offer, simply purchase a cruise, and then add one of the two packages dedicated to golf. These include either three or four green fees to access some of the most famous and popular golf courses in the Mediterranean.

Rome is the official host of the Ryder Cup

Among the selected golf clubs in Italy there are the Marco Simone, official seat of the Ryder Cup 2023; Golf Nazionale, the technical centre of the Italian Golf Federation; Olgiata Golf, which has hosted the Italian Golf Open several times; Acquasanta Golf, one of the oldest Italian clubs, and the Garlenda Golf Club on the enchanting Ligurian Riviera di Ponente.
