It was in 1907 that a certain Mr Wyat, an English man while on vacation in the Como area fell in love with the place and decided to build a 9 hole golf course for he and his friends to play on above the villages of Grandola and Uniti.

The course was redesigned and upgraded in 1965 by John Harris under the auspices of Antonio Roncoroni, whose family had purchased the course from the original English owners. Mr Roncoroni, who was also founder of the Italian PGA, played an important role in the growth of golf in Italy and organized the first National Junior championships on his Menaggio course.
