Italian Open moves to end of May at

Gardagolf Country Club

The 2018 Italian Open will return next year to the picturesque surroundings of Lake Garda for the first time in 15 years. Gardagolf Country Club has been confirmed as the next host venue of the prestigious tournament from May 31-June 3.
The second Rolex Series event in 2018, the Italian Open has moved in the European Tour’s international schedule from October to May, with the 75th edition of the event now taking place immediately after the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
Nestled between the famous Rocca di Manerba, Soiano Castle and the Valtenesi hills, Gardagolf Country Club is one of northern Italy’s most prestigious courses and has produced some memorable golfing moments, with the venue last hosting the Italian Open in 2003 when Sweden’s Mathias Grönberg claimed a two-stroke victory.
Since then the Italian Open has delivered some incredible triumphs, including from this year’s victor Tyrrell Hatton, who sealed his second European Tour win in seven days with a brilliant birdie at the last to claim the title, following his successful title defence the week prior at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.
