Founded in 1971, La Pinetina Golf Club is located in the proximity of Lake Como. It covers 158 acres of Tradate-Appiano Gentile parkland in wonderfully unspoilt countryside. In 1982 the entire complex was purchased by the members and considerable structural and technical modernization has been carried out to bring the course to a high standard of perfection: bunkers were extended, greens re-laid, etc. 

Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
Lake Como is a mere fifteen kilometres down the road. Lovers of history and architecture will appreciate the weal of Duomo, built during 14th century and the Romanesque sobriety of the Basilica di Sant'Abbondio and San Fedele. Then it is on to the peace and quiet of La Pinetina, a course designed by John Harris and Gianni Albertini over two stages and hilly terrain which results in this being a tiring course to walk (buggy recommended).

The good thing, naturally, is the magnificent view over the mountains. As its name would suggest, the fairways here are lined with pine-trees and wayward balls will need bending back to the short stuff. Then a few water hazard make life a little difficult, as well. After several rounds here, you have a clearer insight into this rather tricky layout and you can even think about carding a good score and having a great day's golfing in the process.
