VILLA D'ESTE GOLF LODGE


It was in 1907 that a certain Mr. Wyatt, son and heir of a wealthy British subject, came as a tourist to the hills above Grandola and Uniti. He fell in love with the place and settled there with his wife. A perfect English gentleman cannot survive without his game of golf and Mr. Wyatt was no exception. He organized a makeshift 9-hole course which soon became a favourite meeting place for golf-lovers in the area. In the fifties the Golf Club was handed over to Italians. Mention should be made of the golfing library, second only to S. Andrew's.


The par 70 of the Menaggio and Cadenabbia Golf Club says something of the course, while short by modern standards it requires precision and careful thought. The simple length printed on the card does begin to describe the fascinating and unique nature of the ground, the obvious challenges and subtle difficulties, of the narrow fairways and the steep inclines.

 While the length of the course explains why the course has never, and probably never will be, a venue of International Opens. The attractiveness of being among the "open" courses is not one of the worries of the club, which prefers discretion. This club only needs its history, the friendly profile of the lake, the narrow holes amongst the trees and the back drop of the Central Alps.
