Additional information

During the crisis after WWI, Dr. Mackenzie came to shore of the "River Plate"  to work on a couple of designs: GC Argentino and Jockey Club in Argentina and this magnificent course in Montevideo, Uruguay. The ancient golf tradition in Uruguay over decades founded around the course this great society, building one of the finest golf legacys in the Southamerica. Golf Club del Uruguay is today recognized worldwide both for its unique Mackenzie course and its honorable institution. The club has its headquarters in Punta Carretas with many tennis courts, pool, gym, restaurant, meeting rooms, fitness center and a level of professionalism in its staff worthy of the best clubs in the world. A great choice of golf just half hour flight from Buenos Aires. Like happens in the Old Course St. Andrews, on Sundays afternoon the course becomes a public park open for the local people to enjoy.

The Expert's opinion

Latinamerica must feel proud that Dr. Mackenzie created this jewel of which you will never get bored of playing. Is a pure Mackenzie design, with marked fairways, manicured greens and bunkers protecting the score. Its location over the widest river on earth guarantees awsome views and extreme winds risk.



The Good & The Bad

Mackenzie Design
Excellent Maintennace
The Institution and its members
Few courses in the area to combine with.

Signature Hole

15th / Par 4 / 295 yards

Masterpiece of risk/reward! Short reachable par4, combined with out of bounds on the left, a deep forest on the right and a "Redan" green that will roll the approaches from short right to long left. In the last 50 yards, the left side of the fairway cracks creating a sort of cliffs that will capture any short approach and take it 15 feets down.
