Golf Club Castelconturbia
Golf Club Castelconturbia features 27 excellent holes designed by no other than Robert Trent Jones Sr, a world-renowned golfing architect. The Castelconturbia course is positioned in a majestic setting surrounded by nearby forests and mountains, offering a beautiful landscape and a fantastic test of golf that can be appreciated by all.
A prestigious course in its entirety, having hosted the Italian Open in 1991 and again in 1998, the Golf Club Castelconturbia covers a wide area in a natural Italian landscape with an invigorating challenge on offer throughout. The course makes its way through secular trees, streams and lakes whilst blending in and harmonising into its surroundings. The back drop of Mount Rosa is a truly wonderful spectacle as you make your way through the course, making it a unique and unmissable golf course. With several challenges throughout the course on a beautiful landscape, it comes as no surprise the Castelconturbia golf course has been ranked in the ‘Top 10 Courses in Europe’ and in 2003, was announced as the ‘Number 1 Golf Course in Italy’.

The course is fairly balanced providing a stern technical test to each of its players, whereby only precision play will pay dividends. It is widely considered to be one of Italy’s most challenging golf courses, therefore it is thoroughly encouraged players bring their A game here! However, with three nine-loop holes, there are numerous playing options on offer therefore all players regardless of their handicap can be accommodated for here. The Golf Club Castelconturbia is situated just one hour’s drive to the north of Milan, therefore it is highly accessible for all golfers looking for a taste of fantastic Italian golfing whilst still being able to enjoy the ambience of the idyllic countryside.
The more experienced and skilful players may choose to play the Blue and Yellow nines if they are looking to play the Italian Open course. However, to score well on these holes it is important to take your time in scoring some accurate approach shots as not to hinder your score card too early on in the game. The challenge on this invigorating golf course is intensified by the nature of the greens here, and the intentions of Robert Trent Jones Sr have been made here; it would not be unfair to say that each and every golfer will be pushed to their limits. The greens here are very large and difficult to read; therefore, you may find yourself needing to take extra care with your pin placements!
If you are looking for an unforgettable golfing challenge on a strategic and varied course with a beautiful mountainous backdrop throughout, then be sure to add the Golf Club Castelconturbia to your golfing itinerary; you won’t regret it.
