3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1934

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.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
