Smithfield Golf Club was founded in 1900 by employees of The Smithfield & Argentine Meat Co. in the port city of Zárate. Today, the club operates its 18-hole layout on a 115-acre property where two returning nines comprise the golfing challenge
Smithfield might be one of the best and most unknown treasures in Argentina speaking about golf courses. The piece of land is undulating but gentle, with a nice variety of trees which in the fall show the best time to be played.
Unfortunately the Club lacks of enough resources to maintain it to the top level and as it is not as close to Buenos Aires as many other, it is not as popular as it’s design deserves.
But don’t get me wrong, it is a classic design and a very enjoyable walk.
