The famous Villa d’Este Golf Club dates back to 1926. It rises up on the Como hills dominating the Lake of Montorfano, in an uncontaminated forest of more than thirty thousand trees including chestnut trees, pines and birch trees, a perennial favourite of demanding golfers from all over the world.
The Gold Book of the Villa d’Este Golf Club contains the prestigious signatures of King Leopold of Belgium and Queen Liliane De Rethy, their son Baldovino who would succeed his father to the throne, of Edward of England, Alfonso XIII of Spain, Costantino of Greece and the names of Europe’s most illustrious aristocrats, along with the biggest names in industry, art and international cinema, with Clarke Gable and Bing Crosby at the top of the list.
The club offers an 18-hole golf course designed by the British architect Peter Gannon and was inaugurated in 1926: the Villa d'Este Golf Club is one of the highlights of Italian golf in the world.
Golf is one of the most exclusive sports practiced on Lake Como and the Villa d’Este Golf Club has become the home of European amateur tournaments. Over the years the course has undergone a series of modifications to meet the needs of today’s game, while attempting to maintain the characteristic elements of a turn of the century course.
