The course at the Biella Golf Club, aka "The Birches" (Le Betulle), was designed in 1958 by John Morrison, a colleague of Harry S. Colt. Morrison shows Colt's influence here in the way his layout gets the most out of the excellent and picturesque setting some 45 miles outside Turin at Valcarozza in the Alps. Apart from being brought up to tournament length, today's course keeps true to the original design. Though deemed too far off the beaten track for the Italian Open, Biella did attract the European Amateur Championship in 2006, in which Irishman Rory McIlroy emerged victorious. Native ravines, creeks and ponds are pressed into service as hazards, while hardwood trees fringe the holes. These features in combination with carefully positioned bunkers make for a real challenge. Casual golfers should probably take advantage of the forward tees, since the course is unforgiving when it comes to wild shots.

My idea of a great golf club. A natural looking, technical gem of a course in a peaceful and calm setting. The stylish club house (with dormy house) is the only building one can occasionally see through the trees during the round. Lots of memorable holes such as 3, 4 (!), 6, 8, 9, 11, 14 (!). Holes 12, 13, and 15 are weaker than the rest, but the course definitely works as a whole.
