Golf Cub Ambrosiano was designed by Brian Silva and was openned in 1994. The main feature of the golf course is that 14 holes have water hazzards. The course is very flat making it very easy to walk but there is always golf cars available. Ambrosiano is considered one of the better designed golf courses in the Milano area and all visitors find it very intresting and a good test of golf because of its florida pencross Greens and Fairways.  


Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide

Sure, this recent course is close to Milano, but it is also not far from Pavia, at whose university Petrarch and Leonardo da Vinci studied in the days gone by. This was also one of the strongholds of the Visconti who built their mausoleum to the north of the city at Certosa di PAvia (Charterhouse of Pavia), an extraordinary Lombardy-style church somewhere between the Gothic and Renaissance styles. It is also just a few miles from Ambrosiano. Golfers who have no time for history or old buildings can play this course twice in a day. Being virtually shorn of trees, it is hard to immediately appreciate game strategy and visualize the traps. The clever layout of the very many hazards makes this a very amusing and high quality course, even though the landscape is nothing to write home about. It is, however, a much trickier proposition when played from the back tees.




One of Italy’s largest regions, Lombardy lies in the north of the country, sharing a border with Switzerland
Stretching from the Alps to the lowlands of the Po Valley, it is home to a wide range of landscapes, including the breathtaking mountain chain that boasts the ValchiavennaValtellina and the Camonica Valley
Winter sports enthusiasts will find no lack of state-of-the-art facilities in Lombardy, for example in the extremely popular resorts of TonaleBormioLivigno and Madesimo

Another aspect that defines the region is its expanse of rolling hills that encompass the distinctive Franciacorta area, famous for its vineyards and wine production. The charm of the great lakes is a great tourist draw, attracting visitors to Sirmione and other well known destinations dotting the western coast of Lake Garda, while Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are no less beautiful, surrounded as they are by stately homes, parks and picturesque small towns.
 
The region is also characterized by the great flat tracts of the Po Valley lowlands, covered by shimmering mirrors of water and rice paddies: this is the typical landscape of Lomellina, the land of rice harvesters, steeped in tradition. 
The region has countless other distinctive facets. Lombardy, aided by its geographic position and fertile soil, will captivate you - nature, history, art and culture marry in harmony with innovation, technology, fashion, entertainment, and a contemporary outlook.

MILAN

Large, lively and industrious, the Province of Milan is the second most populous in Italy. Its territory extends over a stretch of the Po Valley and includes the River Ticino to the west, and the River Adda to the east. It is shaped by its waterways: river and canals that traverse it and sometimes border it, from the Lambro and Olana Rivers to the numerous canals, the Navigli Milanesi, ancient links between the area's major water runs. These runs link farmsteads and villages like that of Corneliano Bertario with the Castello Borromeo Castle; and ancient noble villas, such as the Inzago Villa near the Naviglio Martesana, to the Canale Villoresi, thought to be the longest man-made canal in Italy. The Villoresi marks the natural southern border of Brianza, an area in Lombardy noted for its mountains, lakes and plains. 

The territory of Milan contains six regional natural parks: Parco Adda Nord, Parco Agricolo Sud Milano, Parco delle Groane, Parco Nord Milano, Parco della Valle del Lambro and the Parco Lombardo della Valle del Ticino.
Half the Province of Milan is agricultural and flood plain, and most of it is protected by reserves. Each of these habitats features a variety of natural, country and architectural landscapes of great interest.
