Golf course near Rome hosted Ryder Cup last week.
A large fire broke out on Thursday at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, the course near Rome that hosted the Ryder Cup last week, with plumes of smoke visible in the east of the capital.
The blaze broke out at about 17.00, completely engulfing a three-storey hospitality building at the venue in Guidonia Montecelio, north of Rome.
There are no reported injuries and firefighters are at the scene.
