Pevero Golf Club, situated in the Porto Cervo district of Costa Smeralda, is widely regarded as one of Trent Jones Snr’s most daring designs. The strategic 18 hole, 6717 yard layout is set on the edge of a jagged coastline with glorious views across the turquoise Mediterranean Sea from every hole. On a clear day, views of distant Corsica add to the alluring mystique of the course.
Not that the charming views are to be taken lightly. When the famed North wind – the Mistral – blows, controlling your Titleist Pro V1 is a challenge for even the best ball strikers as the star-studded field (including Jacklin, Charles, Lyle, Ballesteros and Torrance) discovered during the 1978 Italian Open. Hayes won with a five over par total of 293 and was one of just two players to card a round in the 60’s at that week’s European Tour event.
