The Italian Open is the Italian national open golf championship for men. It was founded in 1925 and has been part of the European Tour's schedule since the tour was founded in 1972. The 2018 event was the 75th edition of the championship.

The 2016 Italian Open was played in September at the Golf Club Milano in Monza with a prize fund of €3 million. In 2017 it became one of the European Tour Rolex Series events, moving to October, with total prize money of US$ 7 million. The 2018 tournament was played in late May and early June at Gardagolf Country Club near Lake Garda.[1]

History

In 2008, Hennie Otto was just one stroke away from the tournament aggregate record of 262, set by Percy Alliss in 1935 on the course at Sanremo, which even by the standards of the day was relatively short, at just 5,200 yards.[2]
