Before building the course, Pedro Vara, best known as Piero, owner of a mattress factory, travelled for three years visiting the USA's best clubs to take ideas to add to his own project at Pilar Golf Club. He intended to build an excellent quality course that would challenge players of all levels.

Big lakes and bunkers threaten the careless at Pilar. It also has a 665-yard par six which captures the attention of all golfers. The design of the course blends the need of long and precise tee shots with accuracy of approach and deft putting. The greens are wide with significant breaks and movement.

Pilar has 27-holes from which to choose and the layout is relatively treeless. It's American in style and is considered among the best of the continent, occupying 110 hectares of an old Estancia and located some 60 kilometers from downtown Buenos Aires.

Tournaments held at PGC: Argentina Stroke Play Championship (1994, 2000, 2005) and Argentine PGA Championship (2002). It also hosted the Abierto de Argentina in 2006, 2011 and 2018.

Antes de construir la cancha, Pedro Vara, más conocido como “Piero”, dueño de la fábrica de colchones Piero, viajo durante 3 años por las mejores canchas de los Estados Unidos, tomando ideas que luego aplicaría en su propio diseño. Su intención era construir una cancha de excelentes cualidades y que planteara desafíos a jugadores de todos los niveles. Las grandes lagunas y bunkers suponen un peligro constante para los jugadores descuidados. Posee un par 6 de 665 yardas, algo que solamente 4 canchas en todo el mundo lo poseen y llama la atención a todos los jugadores que pasan por el club.

El diseño de la cancha logro combinar la necesidad de tiros largos y precisos desde el tee, con la exactitud en el approach y en el putt. Los greens son muy amplios con importantes caídas y movimientos. Para el movimiento de tierra se contrataron “shapers” de Arizona, Estados Unidos.

Es una cancha de 27 hoyos con pocos árboles de estilo americano y esta a la altura de las mejores del continente. Distribuida sobre 110 hectáreas de una antigua estancia y ubicada a 60 kilómetros del centro de la ciudad de Buenos Aires, solo puede ser recorrida en carros eléctricos.

Campeonatos disputados: Nacional por golpes de aficionados (1994, 2000, 2005) y Campeonato de Profesionales (2002). También se disputo el Abierto de la República 2005 y la sede estuvo muy cerca de tener la Copa del Mundo 2000 en la cual Tiger Woods visitó por única vez la Argentina.
