In and around Montevideo
Golf enthusiasts are usually fascinated once they find out they have got a couple of outstanding golf courses in Montevideo. The first is in the actual center of the city, looking at the coastline, with an unequalled perspective of the city skyline. And the second one is at the western point of the metropolis, having a just as superb view.
The first one belongs to the Club de Golf del Uruguay, which was constructed around 1930 and created by the well known Alistair Mackenzie. This golf course is situated in the residential neighborhood of Punta Carretas, only one street from Punta Carretas Mall. In addition to a couple of restaurants, pools, as well as sports facilities are located in its clubhouse. You are able to play there free of charge on Mondays.

The traditional Club de Golf del Cerro goes back to the early twentieth century, the time its course was projected by the proprietors of the Swift Slaughterhouse. Once you arrive in a couple of minutes, its breathtaking landscape and amenities provide you with all the relaxation and peacefulness you have been searching for.

Apart from these classic golf clubs, a half hour drive towards the east from Montevideo’s center takes you to La Tahona Golf Club, found within La Tahona gated community, in Canelones. For that reason, this game experience is not the same as the previously discussed golf courses, because the 18 holes are set among the green areas between the classy residencies of La Tahona gated communities. This golf course was built in 1996 and features a restaurant, a pool and several additional sport facilities.
