A historic walk in the city

Getting the chance to play a historic Dr. Alister Mackenzie redesigned course in South America has shot up the list of my favorite bucket-list experiences.
I only got to play 13 holes because I had a flight home to catch, and I played horribly the last two holes rushing to get done, but I'll always have a fond place in my heart for this round.
The course was an easy and enjoyable walk. The city intrudes in spots, but that's part of its charms. You can see buildings from almost every vantage point, and more than a few holes play along a fence (or tree line) separating the club from a public road.
It's just a classic look. Without length to defend assaults from the modern game, the course relies on trees that pinch fairways and bunkers that pinch small, elevated greens to keep scores in check. The river comes into view on the back nine.
The clubhouse, rebuilt after a fire set by a terrorist group in 1971, has a nice restaurant and outdoor patio overlooking the putting green.
Best of all, the private club is somewhat accessible to the general public and relatively affordable compared to other Mackenzie courses. If you're headed to Montevideo for business or pleasure, I can't recommend it enough. Call ahead to see what your options are for a tee time.

Club de Golf

This is largely a private course so green fees are high for visiting golfers. The course was designed by Alistair McKenzie earlier last century. The layout is challenging with narrow fairways and mature trees. Greens are very slow and well grassed. Greens are a bit hard to read with the slope generally falling away to the river. All in all a pleasant round (despite the expense). A sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of central Montevideo.
