Additional information

The Jockey Club is one of the most traditional clubs of Buenos Aires. To have a clue of this, its founder (1882) was one of the first Presidents of our country, Carlos Pellegrini. Since then, every President of the Republic becomes a member the day he takes power. It has 36 holes designed by the best designer of the 20th century: Allister Mackenzie, designer of Augusta National, host of the Masters Tournament in the U.S.A. Both courses (the blue and the red one) were inaugurated in 1930 and it characterize for having holes for the strategic player. The Jockey Club hosted a great amount of the most important tournaments, such as the Argentine Open, the World Cup, the European Tour and the most important amateur championships.

The Good & The Bad

The movement McKenzie gave to this flat land. It's very dificult to be able to play.


Signature Hole

18th / Par 4 / 350 yards:
Inspired in "Old Course Saint Andrews" 18th. Both have almost the same lenght, both are almost straight, both have no bunkers... It's all about the green! During the open some PRO put their ball in the fringe with a 3 wood, even though they couldn't get a birdie.
