Good vs Bad
Tradition, reputation and the best golf challenge.
Because of the type of grass, during the summer, greens can get softer and slower.
Expert´s Opinion

Because of its natural uneven terrain, its doglegs on both directions, its fast and firm greens, its history and tradition. If we imagine Argentina being the USA, Olivos would be its Augusta.


Considered by many as the “Augusta National of Argentina”, Olivos Golf Club, designed by Luther Koontz (shaper of Mr. Alister Mackenzie), has hosted the Argentine Masters Tournament and the Argentine Open on multiple occasions. Many world renowned players have walked these fairways. Such is the case of Payne Stewart, Tom Watson, Seve Ballesteros, Bernard Langer, Gary Player, Craig Stadler, Vijay Singh and Tom Lehman amongst others. These 27 holes (White, red and blue) possess natural drops in terrain and big trees. Very challenging as both shot shapes are required from the tee, as well as correct wind Reading for proper approach shots. With big and undulating greens very well maintained all year round, as the top golf courses in the world.

Signature Hole

Hole 15, a par 5 of 470 yards, is amongst the top 500 holes in the world, according to Golf Digest magazine. This dogleg right is a par 5 for amateurs, and plays as a par 4 in the professional tournaments. This hole requires at least a 260 yard tee shot to be able to have a straight shot into the green. This second shot (if attempted) is of around 200 yards and must cover the water in front of the green, which is small, fast, and is also protected with bunkers. A true masterpiece of risk/reward golf.
