Jack Nicklaus designed the 7275-yard private course at the Nordelta Golf Club as the focal point of a private community in Tigre, a suburb of Buenos Aires. The Nordelta hosted the Argentine Open in 2009, just one year after opening. Nicklaus made full use of lake-dotted wetlands near the River Plate, which forms the broadest estuary in the world. This exemplary, well-proportioned course is Argentina's most difficult; there is fun to be had, but casual players can expect to lose some balls to the wind. Carefully maintained, the greens are perhaps the best Argentina has to offer. All in all, the surroundings and facilities make for very pleasurable golf. Among the superb amenities at the club are an excellent, up-to-date clubhouse, first-class practice range and decent service from a bilingual staff; the starter, however is not quite up to snuff. The zoo at Temaiken makes for a nice addition to the experience.
