Los Tajamares Golf Club, first PGA club outside the United States
Garzon Tajamares Golf Club is Uruguay’s top notch golf course designed by Masters and US Open Champion Angel Cabrera.
This private championship 18-hole course was selected as the first PGA TOUR Preferred Golf Course outside the United States. See Video Link.
The course is situated between vines and olive groves, chestnut fields, almond trees, and natural lakes. The 7,000-yard-long, par 72, includes a full practice facility and relaxing bar at the turn. It presents a challenge for both professional as well as the amateur player who enjoys touring every hole in a peaceful setting. There are PGA endorsed instructors for adults and children.
Los Tajamares Golf Club is located within the greater 10,000-acre estate of wine tycoon Alejandro Bulgheroni, 30 Minutes drive to the charming and chic village of Jose Ignacio on the Atlantic Uruguayan coast.
The vintner’s program, which is part of the newly launched Garzon Club PGA Golf membership, allows members to make their own custom wines under the guidance of Bodega Garzon’s winemakers. The membership entry fee costs US$ 200’000.
