The Club - Varadero Golf Club
The only 18 hole Golf Course in Cuba, was designed by architect Les Furber, President of the Canadian company - Golf. Design Services LTD (GDS). It is of Classic design but with a modern style and with broad roads bordered by trees and wide and scarcely protected greens. The Varadero Golf Course has several salt water lakes that connect directly with the sea, a feature that makes it almost unique in the world.
The Links are located alongside the sea following the shoreline, which makes the ocean an obstacle in the game.
The Golf Course has two distinct areas. There is a slightly easier first round, and a second round where some holes stand out for their individual complexity. This allows golf players to combine all the technical elements of the game with the beauty, peacefulness and quiet of the surroundings. The Golf Club has continue to expand its’ golf facilities and projects by opening the first golf academy operated by PGA professionals and instructors from the Cuban Golf Federation.
The Golf Academy has a Practice area of 300 meters which has various programs following international sports guidelines, rules and ethics and is open to all professionals and students who wish to enjoy golf in Cuba with breathtaking beaches and our wonderful culture.
