Rome to host 2022 Ryder Cup

The Italian capital city of Rome will host The Ryder Cup for the first time in 2022. The historic announcement, made today by Ryder Cup Europe, will see golf’s greatest team event staged on the Continent of Europe for the third time.

The Marco Simone Golf and Country Club, only 17km from the centre of Rome, will follow in the footsteps of Club de Golf Valderrama in Spain (1997) and Le Golf National in France (2018) - when the 44th edition of the match between Europe and the United States is staged in the autumn of 2022.

Richard Hills said: “The plans outlined for the golf course at Marco Simone are spectacular alongside the commitment to develop all levels of golf in Italy, and we look forward very much to working with the Italian 2022 Ryder Cup team over the coming years.”

Everyone knows George Clooney loves Italy. Who knew he enjoyed also Italian golf too?

Since 2001, he's been a regular fixture at the Menaggio & Cardenabbia Golf Club on Lake Como, drinking Cokes in the clubhouse and playing a round with his Hollywood and Italian friends. So familiar is George that no one makes much of a fuss anymore, when he comes riding in on his signature Harley Davidson.


Romanticis at large: Lake Como

Como LakeTuesday, 22 January 2013 - by Sabrina Santi

“This lake exceeds anything I ever beheld in beauty" once wrote the English poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. No other words can describe better this blissful place, coated with charm and romance.  The main attraction is the lake itself, shaped like an upside down Y, with the charming village of Bellagio at the Y intersection.  Whether you go for a vintage boat or just  jump on a public ferry,  a tour on the lake is mandatory.  The view from the lake at the numerous villas that line the shores of the lake is captivating:
