Where2Golf says: 

Golf Club Bergamo L'Albenza: Steep-sided hills with houses and villages delicately perched, and fast running streams surround these 27-holes in this pre-Alpine setting just outside Bergamo. Plenty of steep-sided banks and small water streams can also be found on the course itself; the water can be avoided with good course management and the hill-climbing is really not too arduous. Although competitions are usually played on the Blue-Yellow combination, the quality and layout of the Red-nine is up to the standard of the other two nines (and the Red has the most picturesque views). All three nines feature a very strong layout, with often tightish tree-lined fairways and, especially on the Blue and Red nines, plenty of undulation. Playing any combination is highly recommended, and if you can, try to fit in all 27.

Did you know?

"L'Albenza" is a name taken from this particular area to the north west of Bergamo. The course hosted the Italian Open championship in 1996, won by Jim Payne of England. More famously in golf terms, the golf club was home to a certain caddie, who became a European Tour professional, and in 1995 very nearly won The Open Championship at St Andrews. Costantino Rocca narrowly missed out at The Open, losing in a 4-hole play-off to John Daly of the USA.
