Golf Cub Ambrosiano was designed by Brian Silva and was openned in 1994. The main feature of the golf course is that 14 holes have water hazzards. The course is very flat making it very easy to walk but there is always golf cars available. Ambrosiano is considered one of the better designed golf courses in the Milano area and all visitors find it very intresting and a good test of golf because of its florida pencross Greens and Fairways.
Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
Sure, this recent course is close to Milano, but it is also not far from Pavia, at whose university Petrarch and Leonardo da Vinci studied in the days gone by. This was also one of the strongholds of the Visconti who built their mausoleum to the north of the city at Certosa di PAvia (Charterhouse of Pavia), an extraordinary Lombardy-style church somewhere between the Gothic and Renaissance styles. It is also just a few miles from Ambrosiano. Golfers who have no time for history or old buildings can play this course twice in a day. Being virtually shorn of trees, it is hard to immediately appreciate game strategy and visualize the traps. The clever layout of the very many hazards makes this a very amusing and high quality course, even though the landscape is nothing to write home about. It is, however, a much trickier proposition when played from the back tees.
