Golf Club Monticello
On the edge of Milan, around the corner of Lake Como there is one of the most important Golf Course in italy, the Golf Club Monticello.
Benefiting from the brilliant intuition of its founders, Monticello Golf Club has adapted to the times, promoting the concept of Residential Golf.
Monticello’s international value was immediately recognised by the decision to hold the 1975 Italian Open here, won by Billy Casper. In subsequent years, the Italian Open has been held six times in Monticello and has seen the emergence of some of the best players in the world: Sam Torrance, Sandy Lyle and Greg Norman, who still holds, together with Costantino Rocca, the course record with 63 shots.
