Additional information

Being the first course in Argentina designed by Randall Thompson, and built by his company American Golf Course Design, this recently inaugurated 18 holes course par 71 of almost 7.000 yards represents a great challenge requiring a wide range of shots that impede to box in only one determined game style, privileging strategic game. A total of 11 water hazards appear in more than half of the holes, some of them are displayed as big lagoons, like the ones bordering the 3rd, 8th , 9th ,17th and 18th. Probably one of the characteristic of this layout of rolling bumps fairways is the different shapes that designer used for the creation of more than 100 bunkers that protect both tee shots and approaches. The greens constructed under USGA regulations have normal size, letting the ball run fast and at the same time smoothly receiving the approaches. The clubhouse offers very good facilities, from an outdoor barbecue resto or an in-out swimming pool, to a bar with a relaxing terrace. From there the evening views are great, with the plain sunset over the flat wide horizon behind the fairways and lagoons, all perfectly combined with the native flora.

The Expert's opinion

Although this type of courses are very popular in the world, in Buenos Aires we don't have so much courses like this, as most of our courses are old parklands. Its a very interesting challenge and has many great holes. Is still very new and young, in ten years will be an outstanding place!



The Good & The Bad

Nice Design
Very Enjoyable
Nice Environment
Lot of water
Very Windy
Driving is far from Hole1

Signature Hole

3rd / Par 4 / 390 yards:
This is a straight par 4, with three signature circle big bunkers on the right, and a bunker on the left. Altough the tee box is not too complicated, the approach requires a lot of preccission. The green is a half island, with water short and right, while big deep bunkers protect the left side. The fact that the green rolls fast to the water, makes chipping out of the bunkers almost impossible.
