 Varadero Golf Club


One of the multiple attributes of the beautiful Varadero Beach is that it possesses the best course and facilities for the practice of golf in Cuba . Located in the impressive Hicacos Peninsula , the extensive green closely cropped grass of the field of play, extending for almost a mile, combines harmonically with the numberless shades of blue of the sea along the northern coast of Varadero .

This course, conceived by the architect Les Furber, president of the Canadian company Golf Design Services Ltd. (GDS), is situated nearby the gallant Xanadu mansion in a zone where there are also modern hotels.

The characteristics of the eighteen-hole Varadero Golf Club, together with the experience of the well-trained personnel have been taken into consideration for this club to host the finals of the European Challenger Tours held in 1999 and 2000.

The architectonic conception is part of the paradisiacal place. Near to the wide and well-paved streets, you will be able to appreciate populations of trees that provide extra beauty and fresh air to an environment predominantly characterized by sun, sea and salt.

The Varadero Golf Club has other attractions that make it different from the rest golf courses in Cuba . For instance, it displays ponds of salt water that feed directly from the sea.

The design of the links, holes placed by the sea shore and following its outline thus including the sea as another water hazard in the course, becomes an original feature. No wonder it is said that this course can be split into two perfectly different sections: the first, including holes 1 to 9, can be considered a rather easy challenge, while the second part going from hole 10 to 18 is a predominantly complex one, specially for holes 11, 15, 16, 17, and 18.

The golfers coming to Varadero have the chance of combining at their will the delicious baths in its singular beach with the pleasure of enjoying the largest golf course in Cuba , which provides them with all the comfort they request.
