Alister MacKenzie designed two private courses, the Colorada and Azul, for this club right outside Buenos Aires at San Isidro, in 1935. Mackenzie shaped 785 acres of level ground with carefully placed swales, hollows and bumps. The popular par 70 Colorada is defined by enchanting and eye-catching trees and flora for a links-like feel. This nicely proportioned, walking-only, course has attracted two World Cups. Water does not come into play, but ample fairways and solid greens make the course memorable. At 470 yards, the signature 10th hole offers a short par 5 unmatched by any other in Argentina: two shots are needed to work through a tough angle from green to fairway, and a sandpit gapes on the right. Some drawbacks include a somewhat cramped clubhouse and spotty maintenance in winter, but there is some compensation in the very hospitable atmosphere and what may be the best showers in the world of golf.
