The spectacular 18-hole golf course at Varadero has been constructed to meet the highest possible specifications. The course, which is owned and operated by Rumbos of Cuba, has enough charm and character to even satisfy the most avid club golfer. Varadero golf offers easy access and playability for the occasional golfer, and its tournament tees provide a true championship test for both the low-handicap and professional golfer alike.
Five par threes, five par fives and eight par fours form the component parts of its comprehensive and unique design. The par 72 course stretches over 6269 meters (6856 yards) and includes 4 kilometers of cart paths surrounded by 14 hectares of natural lakes.
Each hole has a minimum of 4 tee areas allowing golfers of all abilities to test their skills. Carefully watered from tee to green, course is always a pleasure to play.
Course designer Les Furber combined three playing characteristics woven into one theme. Offering classically wide, tree-lined fairways and huge open greens that invite players to attack the flag, these facilities have been designed for those who want to practice and improve their every golf shot. Special features include a 300-meter Long-game pratice area comprising a driving range, sloping lies and a fairway bunker with both shallow and steep faces. The Short-game practice area offers one flat and 3 undulating putting greens, a greenside sloping-lie practice area, and 20-to-30 yard chipping green with greenside bunkers.
The contrasting shades of emerald green
fairways and aquamarine seas provide a view of breathtaking beauty that
serenades the senses and calms the spirit.
Lady golfers are more than welcome to test their skills, and we encourage juniors to play the course and take part in our golf classes.
The course is also very well equipped for senior golfers. The 90 degree cart rule, applicable to those using golf buggies, allows the golfer to ride all the way to where the ball lies.
A guaranteed-departure reservation system ensure players that there will be no waiting time at the first tee.
The pro-shop staff includes a starter,
marshals, caddies, range personnel, a caddie master, a club professional
and a team of instructors.
For Les Furber, the architect of the course, "Varadero is an easy bogey but a difficult par."
