Course Review and Comments

A very gracious staff, open to discreet requests from the better hotels in Lima (e.g., Swissotel-Lima). Membership looks more European than Peruvian, but unpretentious and welcoming.

The first six holes climb uphill to the very edge of the mountains surrounding the very nice La Molina residential disctrict east of Lima. Several tree-lined fairways, and a greater than average volume of colorful, flowering plants throughout the course. I paid my local caddie US$28. Carts available.

About a $10 cab ride from the San Isidro business district. Nice bar/kitchen services available, as well.

A very good golf option in Lima.

Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments They were quite embarrassed to have lost their greens at the time of my visit; but the course was very well manicured. I saw about 3 dozen workmen meticulously caring for the course.
