Holding 3 Argentine Open tournaments in its first 6 years, speaks enough about the quality test this course presents for professional players. Probably the best maintained course in Argentina, its greens are unparalleled in quality and can play very dry and fast in competition. The course drains and dries better than any other in the city. With the introduction of new tees, Nordelta has become easier for players of all levels.The front 9 is more challenging and narrow. The second is a medium long par 3 over water that immediately challenges with a risk/reward scenario. The par 4 third, sixth and seventh holes are challenging with water in play in all shots. The back 9 is wider and allows for better scoring, with 2 reachable par 5s. The final 4 holes are arguably the best finishing holes in South America with water a factor on all.Nordelta is a course where strategy and intelligent play is at a premium. Avoiding hazards and knowing where to miss is important. The course is exposed to windy conditions often and a solid ground game is a plus. While I respect and enjoy classic designs, to me Nordelta is one of the best 3 courses to play in Argentina.
