Ponte Vecchio Challenge


What do golf and the Ponte Vecchio have in common? The Ponte Vecchio Challenge, or the Conte of Florence Approach Championship. We kept hearing helicopters and announcers and finally looked to see floating greens in the river. How odd. The goal is to hit balls off of a specially built platform on the Ponte Vecchio and try to hit one or more of the greens to win points. This is invitation only, not the average Joe. In case you don’t know what Conte is (and we didn’t even though we walked by the store 100 times) it is a famous sportswear company in Florence.
