Review for Buenos Aires (Green & Yellow)

Reviewer Score:


I was able to play Buenos Aires Golf Club during the Argentinian Mid-Amateur Championship and found the course in pristine conditions. The bent grass greens where rolling at 10,5 the fairways where well cut so did the roughs, so turf wise this is a well-maintained golf course.

But I must agree with my friend David Davis, on a windy day this penal design can be brutal even if you are playing well specially if you find cross winds what he had in almost every hole of the yellow course, the most difficult one.

There are three 9 hole loops the Green, Yellow and Blue where the Green is the least penal of the three and the Yellow the hardest with water and OB all over the place and in the case of hole number 6 a 583 yards par 5 with water all the way on your right and OB all the way on your left probably too much for any player.

The holes normally have mounds and hills in one of the sides what makes the fairways play wider than they appear but that is not a really big help specially on the longer holes where you will need to use driver from the tee.

All in all I think it is a very good golfing experience but be prepared not to score well even with a great game, in this sense the course is not fair because it doesn´t allow a good round of golf what in my opinion is a big problem because the experience should be fair for all golfers.

The good side is that you will be facing some great shots more often than on a regular course and that is an interesting feature so if you are not interested in scoring this is going to be a great experience but if not it could be a little bit tiring.
