Jack Nicklaus, the United States champion, was instrumental in the planning of this course, and with his conclusive contribution of professional experience he has established this 18-hole course with distinctive technical and atmospheric qualities. It is already considered one of the most demanding courses in Italy and is of absolute international value.
In the early nineties Jack Nicklaus found about 70 hectares of level ground between Olgiate and Solbiate Olona that without a doubt by digging and sculpturing was destined to be Le Robinie golf course. Thus he created a masterpiece of hills, terraces, bunkers and lakes, unmistakably the mark of the "Golden Bear". There are more then a hundred of his courses throughout the world, but Le Robinie is the only one in Italy and is already considered one of the best in Europe. Nicklaus, a true perfectionist, modified and corrected most of the 18 holes until he reached his goal: to create a demanding but not "punishing" course where it is possible for golfers of all levels from beginners to professionals to play (there are five tee off areas for every hole) and enjoy themselves.
