Owned by the Hotel until the late ’70s, the Golf Villa d’Este is located 7 miles (12 kilometers) from the hotel, near the lake of Montorfano. Designed in 1926 by architect Peter Gannon, it is located at a height of about 400 meters, surrounded by chestnut, birch and pine woods, in a scenario reminiscent of Scotland. The 18-hole course is considered one of the most challenging and difficult “par 69” in Europe. Every year it hosts many international competitions. The Club House offers a lovely view of the lake.
Open from March to December, every day except on Tuesdays.
