Additional information

Like many other golf clubs established in the beginning of the century, the creation of this golf course was responsibility of a group of members who were employees of a railway company of British origin, owner of the land. It is an exigent par 73 of 6,629 yards characterized by its very good maintenance and a great forestation. The fact that the course has five par 5 and some short par 3 (holes 6, 8 & 12) can make you think that is a very scorable layout, however you should be careful in some toughs par 4 (like holes 1, 3, 17 & 18) were getting the par is not easy at all. A couple of water hazards, some out of bounds, and bunkers constitute the main protections of the course. Like in the case of the Olivos, maybe one of the characteristics of this place is being displayed on a natural moving land, where all around the land is mainly flat (like in these areas of our country). But above all, what makes Ranelagh stands out is its tradition, as it is the ‘cradle’ of the best Argentine golfer of the history, Roberto De Vicenzo (British Open winner in 1967, and the first US Senior Open Champion). Roberto has been living couple of blocks from the clubhouse since he was a young  kid; nowadays being 85 years old, he still pends most of his time at the clubhouse, sharing his company with the members and also playing 9 holes many times a week.

The Good & The Bad

Beautiful place.
Excelent Layout.


Signature Hole

6th - Par 3 - 159 Yards
This is a tricky par three going up, where you need to fly 130 yards to clear the water hazard.
From the end of that small lagoon you have only 15 steps to the entrance. The elevated green is small (32 long x 22 wide), shaped in triangle, and run fast to the front, protected by three buinkers, two shorts on each side, and an invisible one hiden on the left. A bad kick on the right wall of the green may send your ball out of bounds!!! Be carefull.
