Formed in 1898, Rosario Golf Club didn’t have an 18-hole course in play until 1919. The club’s finest moment arrived in 1958 when it hosted the 53rd edition of the Abierto de Argentina, an event won by Roberto De Vicenzo.
Just on the other side of the road from Jockey you cand find “Fisherton” as it is usually known, this club host of Argentine Star Ricardo Gonzalez who has won 4 Times in the European Tour. With a piece of land very similar to Jockey, the design is quite different where tree lined fairways are tighter and some greens seem to be designed by Golden Age American Designers: inverted dishes, some nice two tier surfaces and “hidden” breaks that will surprise you when trying to read the line of your stroke.
Host of the “Abierto del Litoral”, one of Argentina’s Regional Opens where all our best Pro and Amateur Golfers play and with another Old English Style Club House, it is one of those places I love to visit at least once a year.
Well maintained, usually with a tight set up and with one of those charming terraces for 19th hole, Rosario is a perfect combination with Jockey for a weekend of golf just 280kms from Buenos Aires.
