Varadero Golf Club
The spectacular location of Varadero Golf Club is one of the true pleasures of playing here. But so are the lack of players. Throughout the day the course remains surprisingly uncrowded, so you can enjoy an easy-going game and stroll leisurely from tee to green at your own pace. Without doubt, playing a round at Varadero is about as relaxing as the game gets.
But rest assured, this sweeping course will definitely put you through your paces. While the first nine holes offer a more sedate introduction to the round, those that choose to tackle the full 18 will find things get quite a bit trickier on the back nine.
A number of treacherous hazards lie in wait that you’ll do well to avoid. As well as yawning sand traps there are several saltwater lakes that are fed directly by the ocean – a good incentive to keep those tee shots straight as an arrow.
All in all, the courses variety, challenging nature and breathtaking natural scenery make it a truly stunning spot for a round of golf - for amateur players and seasoned pros alike.
If you fancy honing your skills before you hit the course, you can always make use of the club’s practice area, or even book yourself a group coaching session. Lessons last an hour and with a maximum of four players per session, you get the kind of focused coaching that will really help benefit your game.
After a few enjoyable hours out on the course, you’ll probably want to escape the heat and take the weight off your feet. And you’d be in luck. Close at hand, you’ll discover the splendid surroundings of "Xanadú", the mansion built by American millionaire Irenée Dupont in the late 1920’s.
As well as a boutique hotel, "Xanadú" Mansion serves as Varadero Golf Club’s elegant club house. It boasts a sophisticated a la carte restaurant along with a rooftop bar offering a variety of chilled cocktails. So grab a chair, settle back and enjoy the sublime ocean views. We think you’ll quickly agree – there’s no better spot to unwind after a few hours under the Cuban sun.
