The Tournament Schedule

Lake Como - Bellagio
Sunday 20th May

Check-in at the Due Corti Hotel**** the oldest hotel in Como, located just outside the medieval walls and a five-minute stroll through Como's narrow streets to the lake's edge.

Evening: Reception, tournament registration and welcome dinner at il Due Corti (wines included).

Monday 21st May

Midday: First competition round at Villa d'Este G.C.

Quite simply one of the world's most magical places to play golf.  In the hushed dense woods just above the lake, 18 holes have been carefully carved between the trees that will examine anyone's golf.  Only true champions will emerge from the lush hushed forest.

Afternoon and evening: at leisure.
N.B. Villa d'Este has a fine restaurant in case you wish to stay for dinner?

Tuesday 22nd May

Morning: Second competition round at Barlassina G.C.

A wonderfully traditional Golf Club tucked away in a high-class residential area between Milan and Como.  Barlassina has 18 thickly-wooded holes with clever bunkering that is sure to tease and entertain in equal measure. 

Afternoon and evening: at leisure.

Wednesday 23rd May

A full day off to relax and soak up the beauty of Lake Como and the surrounding hills.

The old medieval walled town of Como with its marbled cathedral is perfect for casual strolling, cappucino tasting (with or without dolcetta) and of course designer shopping for a very easy morning.

After which you can hop on one of the hydrofoils that skim across the water up to the picture-postcard town of Bellagio.

In the evening why not jump on the funicular up to Brunate for stunning views of the lake and the distant Alps at the northern end of Lake Como?

Alternatively, a day out in Milan is very easy on the direct trains from Como's central station.

Or if three days of golf is not enough for you then consider the drive over to Bergamo to play their wonderful Alpine course and visit the delightful old hilltop town.

Too much to do really for just one day!

Thursday 24th May

Morning: Third and Final competition round at Monticello G.C.

One of Como's swankiest Golf Clubs where Ferraris and Lamborghinis vie for pride of parking place!  There are two outstanding courses: the long Rosso or the slightly shorter Blu either of which will be a fitting setting to determine our champions.

Evening: Reception and prize-giving dinner at il Due Corti Hotel (wines included).

Friday 25th May

Check-out and departure.

Or why not stay a few extra nights and discover more of what the Italian Lakes have to offer?!?  Or head over to Lake Garda or Lake Maggiore or even further East over to Venice...

Due Corti Hotel**** - Como

There is a lot of history and a real Italian feel to the Due Corti as it is one of Como's oldest establishments (keep an eye out for the Roman brickwork that is in evidence here and there).

It sits opposite the medieval centre of town's southern gate, so the whole of Como and its beautiful lake are all before you.  And as it's not on the one-way system around the lake it is also the easiest town-centre hotel to access.  Plus, once you arrive you can enjoy the free parking - a nice little bonus in Como!

The Due Corti is a small hotel and although unprepossessing from the outside, inside you will find a warm welcome from the friendly staff who have stayed with the hotel through the years, a great restaurant and a small pool in its central courtyard - just enough for a cooling dip.

Flights and Hire-cars to Lake Como

The closest airports to Lake Como are Milan's Malpensa or Linate.  From either it will take about half an hour to get to Como as the autostrada runs practically into town! 

Flights: Easyjet, British Airways, Alitalia and many other airlines offer flights from all over Europe to Milan: please let us know if you would like us to advise on the best routes for you?

Hire cars or Transfers?

Whether you ask us to book your flights or arrange these yourselves, we can organise a hire-car to be ready and waiting for you at the airport.

Or if you prefer not to drive we can arrange for our local transport company to ferry you to and from the golf courses.

Please ask us about prices for hire-cars or transfers.
