Designed by Peter Gannon, this delightful course was built in 1926 on the Como hills surrounded by a forest of pine, chestnut and birch trees nearby the lake of Montorfano.

The first Italian International Amateurs Golf Championship was played here in 1932 and has since received many celebrity visitors vacationing in the area including European Royalty and Nobility and celebrities from around the world including Clark Gable and Bing Crosby .

The clubhouse, badly damaged by fire in December 1990, has been fully restored and has a delightful atmosphere.

Although many courses have since been built in the area, Villa D’Este remains very much in the upper echelons of Italian golf.
