Established in 1900, Jockey Club de Rosario moved to its current location in 1936, which allowed an increased number of sports to flourish on a larger campus. Luther Koontz was then engaged to lay out the club’s 18-hole course in the late 1950s.
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.
Situated on the outskirts of Pilar, the fairways at Golfer's Country Club fan out from the clubhouse in two returning 9-hole circuits, with fairways laid out within three substantial residential developments that surround the course.
