New Nine Holes

The back nine holes of our Mendoza golf resort are certainly coming together, and soon the full 18-hole course will be playable, adding to our reputation as the premier wine hotel and golf resort in Argentina.  Golfers will literally play through the vines, walnut, pear and olive orchards, and enjoy stunning views of the Sierra Pintada Mountains, with the snow-capped Andes Mountain range visible on the distant horizon.

The goal is to create a course that blends with the existing vineyards, indigenous plants, and topography so that it appears as one with the landscape. The design team has opted for a noninvasive approach by allowing the new course to “grow into” its surrounding, and once complete it should reflect a harmonious synergy with the natural beauty of its surroundings. The green will be 7,400 yards from the tips, and will be a challenge for the low handicapper; yet the 5 different tee boxes make the course accessible to the entire family. The original front nine holes (pictured) are currently open for play. Check out this media mention; Algodon Wine Estates Barrel Ownership Program.
