Classic Shotmaking

First of all, the photo is NOT Campestre Bucaramanga. The photo is of the sister course (9 holes) 1 hour outside of town. I will look for a few photos.

I reside in Bucaramanga. The Club is private but can be accessed through a member or if you stay at the on-site hotel.

I would love to help people enjoy a week in Bucaramanga. I traveled the world as a golf planner for 25 years. I would be happy to host some players. Prices are great and weather is perfect.

Walking is mandatory as is a caddy. If you don´t speak Spanish, you´re on your own which makes the challenge even more interesting.

Set in a shallow valley just outside the city of Bucaramanga, the course is a classic shot-makers paradise. You can find yourself in the middle of the fairway, yet find that your second shot requires a slight fade or draw to relatively small, elevated greens.

A large creek (actually Rio Frio... "Cold River") comes into play on few holes as well as several very well placed lakes.

The native tree here (Caracoli) are giant, sprawling and demand that you play shots around them.

Some highlights are the Par 5 4th hole, which for all but Bubba Watson is a three shot endeavor. The tee shot plays down hill to a generous fairway. However, any shot center or left of center and you are required to hit a sweeping draw to ensure a third from within 150 yards. Two giant Caracolis stand guard 50 yards from the green as well as a wide creek, to creat a cathedral-like uphill 3rd. Give me a bogey here any day.

On the 5th and 6th holes, the new Statue of Christ on top of the adjacent mountains is your aiming point from the tee.

The 10th is a 177 yard downhill par 3 with a lake guarding the left side. The green is extremely shallow with bunkers catching any long shot.

The 14th and 15th have giant Caracolis. The former right smak dab in the middle of the fairway, and the latter provides extreme protection on the left side forcing a low draw to the middle of the fairway.

Of the two 18 hole Championship courses in Bucaramanga, the other being Ruitoque, I rate Campestre 3-4 strokes harder on average. Ruitoque may have the majestic views, but Campestre has the tougher test of golf, all the while a providing a beautiful walk.

Hola Gringo Golf,

I live in Medellin. Headed to Bucaramanga specifically to decide on joining Buca or Ruitoque. I will be moving there for the golf. I like the price and weather. Would love to play golf with you. Golf is great in Medellin but prices are better where you are. I don't know how to make contact with you. Golf Adviser does not allow info from me.
