Cuba now has a world-class championship golf course. In 1998 the Varadero Golf Club opened on a property formerly owned by the Dupont family of the United States. This par 72, 18-hole, 6269 meter course was designed by Les Forbes, the Canadian architect who spent many years working with the renowned Robert Trent Jones. Both greens and fairways are irrigated. Eight holes have water hazards, and there are many sand traps along the fairways as well as near the greens. Some holes border the beach along the dunes giving the golfer a spectacular view of the sea. There are three putting greens, one pitching green, practice bunkers and two driving ranges. This splendid course has been the venue of European PGA tournaments.
The elegant clubhouse is the 1930's Dupont mansion known as Xanadu which overlooks the beach from an elevated coral outcropping.

There is an excellent restaurant serving French-style food, an excellent wine cellar and a pleasant terrace bar as well as other facilities. Alongside the clubhouse is a large pro-shop and caddie house with lockers and a bar. There are caddies and electric carts readily at hand and professional instruction is also available.

Bordering the golf course is the 5-star luxury Hotel Melia Las Americas which faces the beautiful Veradero beach on the other side. The hotel is operated by the Sol-Melia chain of Spain and is only minutes on foot from the club house. It has 220 standard rooms, 18 suites and 90 bungalows, various restaurants and bars, plus 5 swimming pools. Taken together the Varadero Golf Club and the Hotel Melia Las Americas make a first class golfing resort unsurpassed in the Caribbean or anywhere else in the world.
