The Sicilian Open, known for sponsorship reasons as the Rocco Forte Sicilian Open, is a European Tour men's professional golf tournament. It was played for the first time in 2011. The event was held in Sicily at the Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa. In 2012 the event was held at Verdura Golf & Spa Resort on a links-style course running up to the coastline. After a four-year hiatus, the tournament returned to the European Tour schedule in 2017 at Verdura, with Rocco Forte Hotels the title sponsor.
