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.
