Additional information

The Olivos GC is one of the best courses in the country and the region, as said by Angel Cabrera, Eduardo Romero and the Golf Digest Magazine, ranking it within the top 100 courses around the world, and in the best position of the three courses of our country. Here is played every year the Argentine Masters Tournament, being the winner international stars such as Payne Stewart, Bernard Langher, Gary Player, Vijay Singh and Craig Stadler. In fact, will host in November 2010 the World Amateur Golf Championship for the second time (first was in 1972). This 27 holes parkland (White / Red / Blue) of 6,705 yards from the blue tees was designed by Luther Koontz, who used to work with Alister Mackenzie (the Augusta National Architect). This parkland of big trees is laid out over a piece of land with lot of ramps and movement. Is one of those courses with no silly holes, where you have to careful on every shot. Tough par 4s with dog legs, a couple of hazards protecting approaches and tee shots, and deep bunkers like in the par 3 of the 17th can put you in trouble at any moment. The course maintenance is excellent all throughout the year, offering fast receiving greens of different sizes. The Argentine Open was played here many times, as well as the most important amateurs tournaments. All these put together explains why is considered locally a golf paradise.

The Good & The Bad

Very chalenging
Great reputation


Signature Hole

6th Red (15th) / Par 5 / 470 yards:
This masterpiece is ranked among the best 500 golf holes in the wolrd. This dogleg right is par 5 for amateurs, and 4 for Pros. You need to drive at least 270 yards to have a 200 yards straight chance of flying over the water to land a small, fast and protected green. Excellent risk/reward hole!
