Est. 1923

Campo de Golf del Jockey Club: located in the northwestern suburbs of Buenos Aires, the Jockey Club is home to South America's most renowned golf facility. It also boasts an opulently large and classical clubhouse, much in keeping with the top country clubs in the USA.

Here you will find the highly-rated Red/Colorado course, and the also excellent Blue/Azul course, both laid out in 1930 by the legendary Dr Alister MacKenzie.

Although principally a parkland course, MacKenzie's design of the Red/Colorado course incorporates a green at the par-5 10th, which bears an uncanny resemblance to that of the par-4 17th (Road Hole) on the Old Course, St Andrews. And like the Old Course, the par-4 closing hole at Jockey Club also has its menacing Valley of Sin.

Did you know?

The Jockey Club, and predominantly its Red course, has hosted countless national and international championships over the years. Notable amongst these are many Argentine Opens, as well as the 1962 and 1970 editions of the World Cup of Golf.

Amongst those who have won these prestigious events here at the Jockey Club, you will find such legends as the great Argentinian flag-bearer, Roberto de Vicenzo (World Cup 1962 & 1970), and Arnold Palmer & Sam Snead (USA World Cup team, 1962) and Bruce Devlin & David Graham (Australia World Cup team, 1970).

Argentine Open winners here include: Lloyd Mangrum (USA; 1946), Gary Hallberg (USA, 1980), Vicente Fernandez (Arg; 1981, 2000), Mark Calcavecchia (USA; 1993, 1995), Jim Furyk (USA; 1997), and Angel Cabrera (Arg; 2001). De Vicenzo won the Argentine Open nine times, but never here at the Jockey Club.

The Red and Blue courses take their names from the colour of the ribbons that were used to mark out the two courses during construction. They also reflect the colours in the club's logo.
