Located in the department of Guaymallén, within what was once the Reboredo family estate, the course at Club de Campo Mendoza was officially opened on 2nd April 1974, in the presence of two of Argentina’s greatest professional golfers, Roberto de Vicenzo and Fidel de Luca.
There’s little movement in the land within the property which makes the course easy to walk, with holes fanning out from the clubhouse in two returning nines. The tree-lined fairways are demanding due to their narrowness and the large, contoured putting surfaces offer golfers a further challenge.
Feature holes include right doglegged par fives at holes 3 and 18, with the par four 9th rated the toughest hole on the card. The greens at the par three 11th and 16th both sit behind small ponds with “Ugni Blanc,” the second of these short holes, considered the signature hole at Mendoza.
I played this course on a very cold winter day where the course was in good condition but with dormant bermuda yellow due to the time of the year. It is a very scenic course just outside Mendoza with fantastic views of the Andes Mountains in the horizon.
As ball flies longer in this altitude, you might need to adjust your yardages when you go play it.
Very good greens, some tough holes and many very narrow tee shots demand extreme precision off the tee.
The area is famous for wine, so if you are a wine lover add some golf and play this one, Mendoza Norte and Andino. They are all worth the visit.
