Villa d'Este is one of Italy's premier resort hotels, known for its scenery and luxurious accommodations, and the course here is equal to its surroundings. Situated amid the numerous lakes that dot this part of Italy where the land rises to meet the Alps, the course was laid out by Irish architect Peter Gannon on a rolling, forested tract of wilderness. The play here stresses careful shots over long ones, so a golfer who diligently works the short game will often win out over one who makes risky drives. The course rewards repeated rounds, so visitors on an extended stay can come back several times while enjoying the other attractions that the area around Como—the lake and the community—is famous for, in particular the local food and drink. The clubhouse itself offers cocktails and lunch, as well as a wonderful view of the exquisite landscape.
