Lake Como is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. There is magic in the air in this special part of the world. With the Alps as a backdrop, the lake sparkles from one picturesque village to the next. There really is no way to explain it. Everyone must experience it for themselves to understand it! SGA is looking forward to returning to this stunning and remarkable area in the summer of 2022. On the agenda will be golf, dining, Italian wine drinking, taking in views of the lake, and exploring the Italian countryside.

Breakfast over Lake ComoHere is the description of Villa d’Este from Fodor’s Travel Guide: “One of the grandest hotels in Italy has long welcomed Europe’s rich and famous, housing them in guest rooms still furnished in the Empire style. Built as Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio’s summer residence, this lakeside retreat has had a colorful and checkered history since its completion in 1568, swinging wildly between extremes of grandeur and dereliction. Its life as a private summer residence ended in 1873, when it was turned into the fashionable luxury hotel it has remained ever since. A broad veranda sweeps out to the lakefront, where a swimming pool extends above the water; La Veranda restaurant boasts stunning views and top-notch cuisine. The fanciful pavilions, temples, miniature forts, and mock ruins ensure a walk in the gardens is full of whimsical surprises.”
Enjoying a drink on the veranda at sunset while overlooking the lake is a magical experience. A stay at Villa d’Este is something everyone should do at least once in his or her lifetime. 
Villa d’Este Golf Club, designed by Peter Gannon in 1926, has been something of a royal retreat over the years. In the opulent club house is a guest book which the Kings and Queens of Belgium, Britain, Greece, and Spain have all signed. The course is seven miles away from the resort and is situated in the hills off the lake. Transportation to the golf club each day is included.
