The Hurlingham Club was founded in 1888 but golf didn’t arrive here until 1892, when a rudimentary 9-hole course opened for play. George Gadd and Arthur Havers expanded the course to 18 holes in 1922.
The club is very traditional sports society founded by the British where members practice polo, lawn tennis and cricket as much as golf. As at many British golf courses, Hurlingham was built near a railway station.
Today’s par 71 course measures 6,349 yards and, as per many of the golf courses of these years, the layout is characterised by small, fast greens and narrow fairways.
Hurlingham is always a good place to visit, not only because the course is expertly maintained, but also because of its lovely surroundings. The club played host to many important tournaments, including the Argentine Amateur Championship, the Argentine Interclub Championship and the Argentine Open several times, most recently in 2008. This Club also hosts one of the most important Polo Tournaments in the world: The Hurlingham Open.Above article adapted with kind permission from www.wegolfargentina.com
