Golf Club Castelconturbia: High in any ranking of Italy's top golf courses, you'll invariably find Castelconturbia. This excellent Stay&Play venue is home to 27-holes of parkland golf, excellently crafted by Robert Trent Jones Sr. Set in an undulating woodland environment, this big-dimension roaming layout is home to three equally absorbing nine-hole loops: Blue (Chestnuts), Yellow (Pines) and Red (Oaks).

Several elevated tee-boxes look down on pleasantly tree-lined fairways, which in turn steer you to Castelconturbia's challenging greens. The slopes and borrows on the putting surfaces will test your skills with the short stick, while your approach work will also need to be well-judged. Water threatens on several occasions. Many of the greens are handsomely wide, but not at all deep from front to back.

In our view the best 18-hole combination is the Blue-Yellow, which is also the most tree-lined. The Yellow-nine contains a really outstanding stretch of golf holes, up there with the best in continental Europe. The island green par-4 7th (Yellow) is just one of the gems that awaits.

There is a more open feel to parts of the Red-nine, which may prove an attraction for wayward hitters. The par-5 9th (Red) is arguably the best of the closing holes; you'll have plenty to think about on your gentle uphill journey back to the clubhouse, with water and a proliferation of bunkering all in play. All three nines finish in an open expansive environment in front of the clubhouse.
