Established in 1900, Jockey Club de Rosario moved to its current location in 1936, which allowed an increased number of sports to flourish on a larger campus. Luther Koontz was then engaged to lay out the club’s 18-hole course in the late 1950s.
Rosario is known as “La Chicago Argentina” in reference to the cereal zone and how it is set by the River. And Jockey Club is some miles off the River and maybe one of the biggest Clubs in Argentina with a huge amount of Members and many sports practiced like Rugby and Hockey where the best player in history Luciana Aymar was born and raised.
The course is a parkland, with some changes in the 90s when Holes 1st and 9th where switched to make it easier to flow the pace of play and path from 9th to 10th. And it has the first island green on 17th where despite not being small and not a long hole, add some adrenaline and wind and it can lead you to a disaster.
Home of the Classic Torneo Internacional de Rosario where Teams from many countries send their best players and with WAGR Points, it is one of our courses well known outside the Country. Apart from 17th you can highlight tough finishing 18th, back to back 5s on 14th & 15th and very tough 16th where the lake on the left and dense woods on the right make it the most demanding tee shot on the layout.
It is one of those Clubs run by true devoted golfers, home of all time Golf Amateur Legends Juan Carlos Devoto and Fernando Chiesa, Jockey is a synonymous of great golf and tradition.
