Tom Weiskopf's

Tuscan Masterpiece

The golf course at Castiglion del Bosco is one of the finest private courses in Europe and the only Continental European design of Champion golfer Tom Weiskopf.

"To me, a golf course is simply art on the ground. It's telling a story in a way."
Tom Weiskopf

Weiskopf’s Tuscan masterpiece is exquisitely blended into the soft curves and contours of the estate’s rolling hills and valleys, treading lightly in an environment where natural beauty requires little enhancement or embellishment.

Exquisitely conditioned and rated the No.1 course in Italy by Leading Courses, Weiskopf’ has designed a course with the Member in mind. It is inclusive and enjoyable for all standards of players, making every round with family and guests a memorable experience.

Luxury Clubhouse Comforts,
Tuscan Simplicity

“Our members have to experience the best, so it is important to give all the comforts and amenities that are necessary, but also to keep it real.”
Massimo Ferragamo - Founder, Castiglion del Bosco

Castiglion del Bosco founder Massimo Ferragamo, his wife Chiara, and interior designer Teresa Bürgisser Sancristoforo personally oversaw the acclaimed restoration of the historic stone Tuscan farm buildings that now comprise The Clubhouse.

Outside, on the terrace, Members can immerse themselves in the timeless, panoramic views, while enjoying The Club’s authentic Tuscan hospitality. Seasonal menus offer locally sourced specialities as well as pizza fresh from the wood-fired brick oven, accompanied, naturally, by a glass of Brunello di Montalcino.

There is also a boutique professional shop, offering luxury branded clothing, footwear and accessories. State of the art rental equipment is available for Members and their guests.

A World Class Wine Estate

Castiglion del Bosco is one of the world’s most beautiful wine estates, and membership of The Club brings exclusive privileges and access to the winery, including the option of a personal locker in the Members’ Private Wine Cellar.

While the entire Castiglion del Bosco estate extends to 2,000 hectares, the organic-certified vineyards occupy 62 of the finest hectares, planted solely with the Sangiovese red wine grape variety responsible for the estate’s prestigious Brunello di Montalcino wines. The vineyards and winery are managed by Castiglion del Bosco’s winemaker Cecilia Leoneschi (pictured).

While the estate is 800 years old, it benefits from a state-of-the-art winery and a 4,000-sq.mt cellar producing the estate’s three Brunello wines: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Campo del Drago Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Millecento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG. The estate also produces an appealing Rosso di Montalcino DOC.

The winery, which hosts private events for Members as well as tours and tastings for Guests, was named as one of the top ten wineries to visit in Tuscany by international wine magazine Decanter.

Founders, Massimo & Chiara Ferragamo

“I arrived at Castiglion del Bosco one cool, sunny morning in March. I wasn’t looking for a winery or for a big estate; I was just visiting a few places with some friends, with no specified interest in mind.

I was so incredibly moved by the limitless views, by the scenery that can only be found in the Val d’Orcia: I had no idea that such a beautiful corner of Tuscany still existed. It was love at first sight.

While we walked around the 2,000-hectare estate, each corner struck me by its beauty, from the castle ruins dating to around 1100 to the 1345 Lorenzetti fresco in the little San Michele church.


Wherever I looked I breathed in the history of these unique places, unchanged down the centuries. But it was the Capanna vineyard that made me realise that Castiglion del Bosco was the place for me. In Capanna the views are boundless: from the Uccellina Mountains in the Maremma to the islands of Giglio and Montecristo.

Faced with such beauty I felt a strong sense of responsibility to protect it. Even now I don’t feel like I own these places. Instead I feel as if I am guardian of something, something that must be preserved for future generations. Castiglion del Bosco is still a magical place for me.”

Massimo Ferragamo - Founder, Castiglion del Bosco

Massimo Ferragamo is Chairman of Ferragamo USA, with offices and showrooms on Fifth Avenue in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. He and his wife Chiara have two sons and divide their time between New York, Florence and Castiglion del Bosco.
