World Invitational March 2-8, 2014

The golf clubs are quite impressive; some with spectacular clubhouses and polo clubs attached, and produce some world-class players on the PGA Tour.

The Golf Courses
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.
Nordelta GC was built to host the most important local and international golf tournaments in the region, this challenging modern par 72 layout of 7.278 yards counts with all the typical characteristics of a Jack Nicklaus design. Waste hazards, big lagoons and multiple bunkers protecting the landing areas will require accurate shots and patience for achieving a decent score. From the four different tees (black, blue, white & red) golfers from all levels will have the possibility to recognize the strategic defenses of each of the eighteen holes. The modern greens of interesting size have smooth and at the same time “hard to read” movements. Although an ambitious forestation program has already started, the actual small size of the trees will make you feel like playing in a “links” golf course.
Pilar GC is a 27-hole golf course is situated in the north suburbs of Buenos Aires, about 50 minutes away from downtown. The 3 courses run around numerous lakes, wetlands, and ornamental grass outcroppings, presenting one of South America's truest and purest tests for golfers of all categories. The Championship course, Blue and White, it’s a par 72 and 7123 yards long. It is an American style design with many slopes and water getting into play in most of the holes. The course is always presented in excellent maintenance conditions. The Club House facilities offer everything a golfer needs to enjoy a great experience. Pilar Golf Club hosted the most important amateur and professional tournaments of the country.
Los Lagartos Country Club was founded in 1969 with the purpose of uniting the family through sports disciplines. That year the golf course was inaugurated; it was built by the well-known Alberto and Emilio Serra, in the surroundings of the Burgueño and Pinazo streams, besides the Pan American Route which, in those years, it was only a project that would joint the towns of Del Viso and Pilar. From the very beginning, its 27 holes – of American style – had wide fairways and huge tees. The length of the fairways makes the presence of rough unnecessary. Said rough grows only when the course is prepared for great championships. Its bent-cross greens give a speed to the ball and a precision to the shot that is a pleasure to play on them. This 6,800 yards 72-Par course hosts one of the most important amateur championships in the world: The J.C. Tailhade International Championship. Trevor Immelman, Eduardo Molinari and Aaron Baddley and other great international players had played here.
Golf Club Argentino was the first golf club in the country created by Argentine natives, this club of more than one hundred years of history counts with a beautiful course, in the city of “Del Viso” 45 kilometers from downtown. Their original course was located just in the heart of Buenos Aires city, and when the local government bought the Railways Companies to the British, they expropriate the course from the club. That was in the fifties, when the members bought these big lands out of the city, and created what nowadays is one of the most ancient and traditional Country Clubs of Buenos Aires, the “Argentino Golf & CC”. The course is a very beautiful 18 holes par 72 and 6,707 yards long. This British parkland, of small tricky greens is always presented in great shape from tee to green. Excellent grass on the greens provides speed. Strategic doglegs, water hazards, and very good located bunkers, will demand a lot of strategy to assure a good score, while enjoying the sights of this magnificent park of old big trees.
