Est. 2001

Golf Gerre Losone: A new addition to the Locarno region's golfing stable, Gerre Losone is laid out in the wonderfully natural and scenic valley floor of the Melezza River. Located just 3 km from Lake Maggiore, the course is distinctly different to its classic, tree-lined neighbour in nearby Ascona. Here you are faced with a more modern, open and very challenging layout, a course that has regularly tested the best on the Ladies European Tour. Several tightish fairways, unnerving OB, rippling earthmounds, and plenty of rock-lined streams and ponds all conspire to demand accurate shot-making versus wayward length. Sand bunkers may be limited to just one or two per hole, but they are usually large, well-placed and decidedly intimidating ! As additional tree-planting matures, some holes will tighten up even more, reinforcing the need for accuracy and careful course management. Among the tougher holes, the par-3 5th can be penal if you stray too far offline, OB closely bordering the right-side of the fairway from tee-to-green. On this scenic, varied and thoroughly testing layout, the long par-5 15th does a wonderful job of mirroring the steep-sided valley within which the course lies. At the top end of the layout, the picturesque valley, with its tree-clad slopes and sheer cliff faces, disappears into dramatic mountain scenery with a real Alpine flourish. In contrast, the many rock and palm-fringed water hazards on the course, create a somewhat contrasting and faintly oriental feel - perhaps underlining the variety of scenery and golfing challenge that Gerre Losone presents.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
