Where2Golf says: 

Barlassina Country Club: Together with Biella (Le Betulle) and Torino (La Mandria), Barlassina is part of a wonderful triumvirate of Italian parkland golf courses designed by Englishman, John Morrison. In its splendidly quiet and rural setting, here is a layout that oozes style and quality; a thoroughbred parkland classic in every sense. Although relatively flat, with only a few undulating holes, the elegance of Morrison's design would not be out of place in a Milan fashion house, or in the sleek lines of a new Ferrari. The avenues of mature trees, some straight, others gently dog-legging, combine with stylish fairway and greenside bunkering to provide the essential ingredients. Water is not a threat on any of Barlassina's holes, and with generally good-width fairways and not overly penal rough between the nicely spaced holes, you'll have the opportunity to card a good score - providing you stay out of the trees and the bunkers. Big hitters may thirst for a bit more length on some holes, but for the vast majority of golfers, Barlassina's appeal lies more in its charm and top-quality presentation, than its ability to overwhelm and humble. As with most of Milan's top golf courses, the large and comfortable clubhouse is home to a restaurant where the best of Italian cuisine is effortlessly prepared.
