Luther Koontz

Luther Koontz, who engineered Jockey Club courses for Alister MacKenzie elsewhere in Argentina, designed this 27-hole course at the Olivos Golf Club in Los Polvorines, 25 miles outside Buenos Aires, in 1952. The Blanca and Colorada runs together form a 6705-yard, walking-only, par 71 track. The course, with its contoured greens and narrow, often tree-lined, fairways, has understandably been called the most lovely in South America. It is well proportioned, spacious, and remarkably undulating considering the generally flat landscape. Don't be distracted by the stunning vistas, though, because the shots demand careful planning. The short game is challenging here owing to greens that are expansive, sloping and quick. The Olivos Golf Club regularly hosts the Argentine Masters and Open tournaments, and was chosen for the World Amateur Championships in 2010. Such great venues continue to be attracted by the superb upkeep, demanding shots, and large and hospitable clubhouse.

Incredible old school design Parkland course, magnificent trees, pure greens. Fairways are not 100% excellent but no rough anywhere is reminiscent of Augusta National, the Colorada/Blanca stretch is recommended. The short Par 5 Hole 15 is beautiful and will test your nerves on the second shot. But the long Par 4 Hole 16 is the more difficult one.
