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.

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.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
