Three of the seven golf courses in Ecuador are located in the capital and all are constructed to a high standard. Los Cerros, Arrayanes and Quito Tennis y Golf Club make up this premier golfing trio, with the latter seen as the best and most challenging of a very good bunch.
Established in 1947, the Quito club has a spectacular mountain backdrop and it caters for a number of sporting activities, including equestrianism, swimming and tennis and their 18-hole course is laid out in very pleasant but rather undulating parkland to the north of the city. With lush fairways, true greens and many trees, including olive and eucalyptus, Quito is certainly a course well worth playing if you have included Ecuador on your golfing itinerary.
Bear in mind if you are ever lucky enough to tee it up here, the rarified atmosphere at more than 9,000 feet above sea level will allow the ball to fly further than you think so club down accordingly, tiger!
