Renowned players from the golfing world have played here and 4 Italian Opens have been held on this course. Severiano Ballesteros played here one of the first Opens. It is a comparatively new course, just over ten years old but designed on a grand scale. In fact the 346 acres also have houses looking directly on to the course. Both these and the club house were designed by Luigi Caccia Dominioni, who is so skilled at interpreting the needs of the upper echelons of Lombardy society.  The setting is wonderful: vast fairways on the level, the silhouette of the surrounding mountains, two artificial lakes, and the wooded areas with two hundred thousands trees complete this unique landscape. 

Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
This is one of the great classic courses in Italy, made famous by the Italian Open championships held here and by the very meticulous maintenance and green-keeping on both 18-hole courses. The wonderful lake Como, a few miles down the road, makes this a great spot for a week-end or longer holiday. The course is laid out in a plain lined with little copses and with the Alps as a backdrop. The difficulties are clearly in view and judiciously spread in order to avoid overwhelming the average player will feel easy playing from the back-tees, particularly on the two very long par 3s, one green of which is surrounded by water (hole n° 7). Elsewhere, the fairways are rather wide, the rough can be dangerous and the most frequently encountered hazards are bunkers and trees. A good course but one which might have deserved a little more imagination from a graphical viewpoint.

One of Italy’s largest regions, Lombardy lies in the north of the country, sharing a border with Switzerland

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.

COMO

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.
