Golfing near the lakes of Grada, Maggiore and Como is an unforgettable experience, with the gentle slopes, flat grounds and small clearings amidst trees. Miles and miles of green area dot the picturesque surroundings. One can walk for hours while playing round after round of golf without feeling tired. The golf courses around these lakes provide an experience which is different from playing golf in traditional golf courses.

Mountains are an important part of every travel circuit of Italy. From the Alps to the Apennines, there are a number of golf courses dotting the slopes of these mountains. They have a wide variety of flora and fauna, making them more even more exquisite. Walking in golf courses situated in mountains can be an arduous task, but it is great fun, too.
