Los Lagartos Country Club – opened in 1969 – was one of the first courses in Argentina to be designed in an American-style with wide fairways, expansive tees and plenty of length. When the rough is up it puts a lot of pressure on those that want to gain distance.

Designed by Alberto and Emilio Serra, Los Lagartos also has large and fast greens and was home to the Professional Open (from 1991 to 1995). This 27-hole facility is divided into three independent 9-hole loops, called La Vieja, Del Agua and La Larga. Every year the best amateurs from all over the world compete for the Tailhade Cup.

Hole three on La Vieja (the Old course) is a par three with a relatively wide hazard that forces the player to hit a long shot across the water.

Una de las primeras canchas del Gran Buenos Aires en ser diseñadas con el estilo de las canchas americanas, con amplios fairways y largos tees de salida. Su rough presiona a quien desea ganar distancia y se equivoca en su estrategia del golpe. Tiene muy grandes y veloces greens. Sede del Abierto Argentino de Profesionales (1991 a 1995) esta cancha de 27 hoyos se divide en tres canchas independientes de 9 hoyos cada una, llamadas La Vieja, La Larga y Del Agua.

Todos los años se juega la Copa Tailhade, importante torneo con los mejores aficionados de todo el mundo. Aquí también se han jugados los Campeonatos Nacionales de Aficionados y el Campeonato Interclub de Primera División.

Fue inaugurada en 1969 y queda a solo 40 minutos de la capital porteña.

This course is really a Championship Course, hosting every year the Juan Carlos Tailhade Trophy, a top international amateur event. Good american style design, big and fast greens and great variety in design, having all kinds of par 4s (drivable, short or long ones), very tough par 3s and par 5s with great difficulty, as hole number 2, maybe the toughest. My favourite is tough and long par 4 9, where you need a long drive to be able to have a mid iron to the green. Friendly to visitors, it´s a course you must play to really feel the test.
