Where2Golf says: 

Golf Club Varese: Big-hitters are going to feel rather tied-down on the front nine of this garden-like course above Lake Varese, with tightish, undulating fairways lined with many varieties of trees, and thankfully very few water hazards. The back-nine is really where the course comes into its own, with many excellent par-4 and 5's, played down avenues of evenly spaced mature firs and some splendid chestnut trees. The going is not too hilly, although save some energy for the climb from tee-to-green at the 18th, the toughest climb on the course. Lake Varese is in view some of the time, but you'd hope to see it a few more times as openly as you do at the splendid downhill par-4 10th hole.

Did you know?

Could this be the oldest golf clubhouse in the world ? The 12th century former convent (Monastero di Luvinate), complete with wall murals, cloisters and a watch-tower, has been faithfully transformed into a wonderful clubhouse. Its worth taking time to look around these very old buildings. The course provided the setting for one Italian Open Championship, played in 1958 and won by Peter Alliss.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
