La Cumbre Golf Club (The Summit) was founded in 1924. As its name suggests the course is perched at altitude within the Sierras de Córdoba mountain range. The 66-yard par three 12th, with its tricky pulpit greensite, is where Roberto De Vicenzo carded a 12 during a tournament.
La Cumbre is one of the Jewels in Argentina with a lot of history having hosted Pro Events in the past and holding the shortest hole in the country with just 66yds. It is a par 3 a little up the hill, with the green sloping severely from back to front and with a back drop at the end that many years ago cost Roberto de Vicenzo in his prime a 12 there and the loss of the Tournament.
Although located in between mountains piece of land has some level changes but not too severe as you could imagine in a place like that.
The visit starts with a very nice Old English Style Club House with a terrace facing 9th and 18th greens usually a great spot for a pre round coffee, lunch or after round pints. Just charming.
The course has a known difficulty on the Bermuda greens where the grain will always be a factor. You face a putt that looks to break right and it is going to go left, just crazy!
Apart from 12th there are a couple of other great holes like long par 5 6th demanding 3 good shots, amazing 11th par 4 with a very nice second shot, short reachable par 4 14th up the hill and very good 15th dogleg right down the slope.
It is one of those not that famous courses but quite good and if off to Córdoba, it is really worth a game and lunch at the Club House
