in 1971, La Pinetina Golf Club is located in the proximity of Lake Como. It covers 158
acres of Tradate-Appiano Gentile parkland in wonderfully unspoilt
countryside. In 1982 the entire complex was purchased by the members and
considerable structural and technical modernization has been carried
out to bring the course to a high standard of perfection: bunkers were
extended, greens re-laid, etc.
Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
Although we decided to stay in the course's own guestrooms, lake Como is a mere fifteen kilometres down the road. Lovers of history and
architecture will appreciate the weal of Duomo, built during 14th century and the Romanesque sobriety of the Basilica di Sant'Abbondio and San Fedele. Then it is on to the peace and quit of La Pinetina, a course designed by John Harris and Gianni Albertini over two stages and hilly terrain which results in this being a tiring course to walk (buggy recommended).
The good thing, naturally, is the magnificent view over
the mountains. As its name would suggest, the fairways here are lined
with pine-trees and wayward balls will need bending back to the short
stuff. Then a few water hazard make life a little difficult, as well.
After several rounds here, you have a clearer insight into this rather
tricky layout and you can even think about carding a good score and
having a great day's golfing in the process.

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 Valchiavenna, Valtellina 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 Tonale, Bormio, Livigno 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.
The region comprises the provinces of Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Cremona, Lecco, Lodi, Mantua, Milan (regional capital), Monza and Brianza, Pavia, Sondrio and Varese.
Along the western side of Lake Como, between Como and Bellagio, lies a journey of discovery of the Sacro Monte of Ossuccio on the Island of Comacina, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is a cluster of old Medieval towns, 18th-Century villas and mountainous nature trails.
The territory of Como is rather varied, with the aforementioned mountainous areas, lakes and valleys. The City of Como lies at the base of Mount Brunate and is surrounded by hills and the Alpine foothills that watch over the southern part of Lake Como.
Beginning with Como, at the furthest point of the western arm of the lake, one encounters beautiful communities one after the other, tucked away in the mountains that lie alongside the calm waters.
All the lakeside towns are perfect vacation spots year-round. They are accessbile reached by boat, funicualr or car, via little roads with splendid views of nature unspoiled. Everywhere in Como, homage is paid to native Alessandro Volta, the celebrated inventor of the battery.
