Additional information

San Andres Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Argentina. In their first course (near to the actual one) was played the first official golf match in Argentina (in 1894). The club's history is the same as many clubs of those times, being the reference point for the British community that settled in the country. Later, it was the Argentine-born kin of these pioneers that kept the communities' traditions alive. Today, when a vast majority of the members are Argentine born, many of the traditions of the British antecessors are still observed. The 18 holes golf course designed by Scottish Pro Mr. Mungo Park in 1907, is similar to the Jockey Club in its characteristics. This par 72 for Men and 73 for Ladies, is a typical British parkland of old ancient trees, with greens of medium size with smooth –hard to read- slopes. However, its short yardage of 6472, is mainly protected by the rough. Some of the emblematic holes to note are: the tough par 4 #1 of 400 yards going up with a fake green at the front, the strategic dog leg in #2 par 4, and the short #14 (par 4 of only 300 yards), while #9, #15 and #18 are long par 4s to be careful. Another characteristic is the short par 5s, reachable in two shots. San Andres is one of those courses that are very easy when you look at the scorecard, however the more you play it, the more you understand why is so hard to make a very good score. This explains why has hosted the Argentine Open 21 times (more than any other club). Roberto De Vicenzo, the 1967 British Open Champion, won here twice, and is presently an honorary member.
