Travelling  north from Milan along the motorway to Como, after 20 Km you come to the splendid Barlassina Country Club. A glimpse  of the club house designed by Luigi Vietti is sufficient to make you aware that you are in one of the top prestige golf clubs in Italy.  The three hundred members include the elite from the Milan world of industry and finance: an exclusive association securely protected from the intrusion of outsiders (including new members). The 18-hole course wend sits way over gently rolling country, through woods of white pine, Austrian pine, oak, poplar and honey locusts. The course, designed by the architect Harris, was later extensively modified by Morrison. 

Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
Opened in 1956, this layout from British architect John Morrison was altered in 1988 with changes made to a number of holes and to the configuration of several greens. It is located over rolling countryside some twenty or so kilometres to the north of Milan, just off the road leading to Lake Como. The surroundings are pleasant indeed and the course full of trees, but still with rather wide fairways. Although in play, the trees are not all that dangerous and serve more as decoration and an addition to the course's visual appeal. In this large park, the walk is all the more enjoyable in that decoration and an addition to the course's visual appeal. In this large park, the walk is all the more enjoyable in that said, if you play from the tips, you have little room for error if you want to score well. Of the many courses around said, if you play from the tips you have little room for error if you want to score well. Of the many courses around Milan, Barlassina is well worth a visit, except on weekends when the course is reserved for members only.

One of Italy’s largest regions, Lombardy lies in the north of the country, sharing a border with Switzerland
Stretching from the Alps to the lowlands of the Po Valley, it is home to a wide range of landscapes, including the breathtaking mountain chain that boasts the ValchiavennaValtellina and the Camonica Valley
Winter sports enthusiasts will find no lack of state-of-the-art facilities in Lombardy, for example in the extremely popular resorts of TonaleBormioLivigno and Madesimo

Another aspect that defines the region is its expanse of rolling hills that encompass the distinctive Franciacorta area, famous for its vineyards and wine production. The charm of the great lakes is a great tourist draw, attracting visitors to Sirmione and other well known destinations dotting the western coast of Lake Garda, while Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are no less beautiful, surrounded as they are by stately homes, parks and picturesque small towns.
 
The region is also characterized by the great flat tracts of the Po Valley lowlands, covered by shimmering mirrors of water and rice paddies: this is the typical landscape of Lomellina, the land of rice harvesters, steeped in tradition. 
The region has countless other distinctive facets. Lombardy, aided by its geographic position and fertile soil, will captivate you - nature, history, art and culture marry in harmony with innovation, technology, fashion, entertainment, and a contemporary outlook. 

The region comprises the provinces of BergamoBresciaComoCremonaLeccoLodiMantuaMilan (regional capital), Monza and BrianzaPaviaSondrio and Varese

 

 

COMO

Along the western side of Lake Como, between Como and Bellagio, lies a journey of discovery of the Sacro Monte of Ossuccio on the Island of Comacina, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is a cluster of old Medieval towns, 18th-Century villas and mountainous nature trails.

The territory of Como is rather varied, with the aforementioned mountainous areas, lakes and valleys. The City of Como lies at the base of Mount Brunate and is surrounded by hills and the Alpine foothills that watch over the southern part of Lake Como. 
Beginning with Como, at the furthest point of the western arm of the lake, one encounters beautiful communities one after the other, tucked away in the mountains that lie alongside the calm waters. 

All the lakeside towns are perfect vacation spots year-round. They are accessbile reached by boat, funicualr or car, via little roads with splendid views of nature unspoiled. Everywhere in Como, homage is paid to native Alessandro Volta, the celebrated inventor of the battery.
