Golf Club Castello Tolcinasco: In addition to 27 excellent golf holes (and a nine-hole Executive course), you will also find a wonderfully restored 4-tower castle and impressive "courtyard community" of weekend homes here at Tolcinasco.
The golf course itself is large, open and essentially flat, with a reasonable amount of tree planting yet to fully mature - but plenty of thickish grass to provide clinging rough off the fairways. Blue, Yellow and Red nines make up the 27-holes - the first two seemingly the closest in look and feel, although the Red-nine is not too dissimilar, but perhaps the lesser of the three ... by a whisker.
The modern American styling incorporates bunkering and water to very good effect, putting a premium on good course management before you reach the superb greens. The outside world doesn't seem to intrude on this spacious golfing environment, although a large radio tower and the more picturesque distant Alps do make their presence felt.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required
Players generally walk this course. Golf carts available for hire.
Castello Tolcinasco has recently hosted the Italian Open Championship (a European Tour event) in 2004 and 2005 (see Tournament listings).
