In the Italian Lakes, near the beautiful Lake Como, are several courses not only ranked among the best in Italy, but among the best in Europe. Villa d’Este, designed by Peter Gannon in 1926, has long made a name for itself as one of Europe’s premier courses. Located on the shores of Como, the course is surrounded by beautiful mountains, lakeside harbours,
and the exotic gardens of Italy’s finest villas. George Clooney even owns property on Como, and can often be seen playing at the local courses here.
Below is a map from Il Mondo Golf Magazine showing the finest courses of the Italian Lakes region:
