The Argentario Golf Resort & Spa (, one of the most highly-regarded golf destinations in Tuscany, Italy, has opened a stylish new Club House in time for the 2019 golf season.

The new structure is home to the Pro Shop, Golf Secretary’s office and the Club House Restaurant & Bar, which boasts an extensive wooden terrace offering stunning views over the golf course and surrounding hills, the Orbetello Lagoon, often awash with flamingos, and the Gulf of Talamone in the distance.

The cutting-edge design of the Club House reflects the dramatic architecture of the nearby resort hotel that is characterized by its magnificent, light-filled atrium reception, its sleek, modern communal spaces and the super-chic furnishings in its rooms, suites and apartments.  The impressive entrance to the Club House, for example, has been created by the installation of a striking decked walkway and gazebo created using natural materials.

Inside the Club House furnishings chosen by Milan-based interior designer, Andrea Fogli, have produced a stylish, yet cosy interior. The traditional decor of historic Anglo-Saxon golf clubs – such as the soft leather chairs and deer antler candelabra – combine with modern, contemporary features that make for a comfortable and practical environment in which to relax.

The addition of the Club House will enhance the overall experience of playing the par 71, 6,218-metre golf course that meanders its way through the Tuscan terrain, cork-oak woods and ancient olive groves. For after a round of golf, restorative drinks and healthy dishes that are simple, yet creative, will now be served in the Restaurant which is overseen by Emiliano Lombardelli, who was born in the Monte Argentario area.

Emiliano demonstrated his passion for cooking at an early age and after attending hotel school, he began working in the world of fine dining in 1988 gaining invaluable experience alongside chef and gastronomist, Alvaro Claudi, on the island of Elba and then alongside the chef, Giuseppe Sestito, at the Mirabelle Restaurant in nearby Rome.

In 2008, Emiliano returned to Monte Argentario as Executive Chef in the Dama Dama Restaurant when the Resort was first opened. In 2016, he began a period of consultancy, devoting himself to other projects and activities such as the publication of two books entitled ‘Con Gusto’ and ‘Cibo’. From Spring 2019, he returns back ‘home’ as Executive Chef at the Dama Dama and Buvette Restaurants at Argentario.

The kitchen at the Club House Restaurant operates lunch from 12:30 to 15:00 and dinner from 19:30 to 22:00, while the bar offers sandwiches, salads and desserts all day, from 8:00 to 20:00.
