Milano Golf Club was founded in 1928 and was designed by the architect
Blenford. It was the only course within easy reach of the city and one
of the very few in existence in Italy at that time. The setting of the
huge Park of Monza, former seat of the Austrian Empire just 20
kilometres far from Milan was ideal for the purpose with its splendid
English-style parkland. Today the Milano Golf Club is one of the most
exclusive, and is difficult to get into in both senses- to be accepted
for membership and to find the entrance (go right round the high walls
enclosing the park to get to Porta San Giorgio). The Italian Open
tournaments have often been held on this splendid course with 18 holes +
9 as it is a technically excellent and complete course. The team of
club professionals is particularly good.
Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
Located close to the capital of Lombardy in the Parco di Monza, this is obviously one of the most prestigious Italian clubs cultivating real golfing tradition, as testified by the annual encounter with the members of the Royal & Ancient at St. Andrews. Gannon and Blanford laid the course out over flat terrain, where majestic trees create both a feeling of isolation and pleasant exclusivity, and a formidable line of defence for hitters who slug rather than think. The very many bunkers ably defend the average-sized greens that are slightly contoured and very well maintained. Here you get the feeling of playing in a huge park, where the silence is disturbed only on those days when the Monza race-track is in action. With good courses (27 holes in all) well suited to all standards of play, plus a huge, functional and luxurious clubhouse, which has replaced the former hunting lodge, the Golf Club Milano has a great future in store.

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.
