Varadero Golf Club 18th hole

The oceanside finishing hole at Varadero Golf Club - Cuba.

While our Robert Thompson was off checking out Teeth of the Dog in Casa de Campo Dominican, I had the chance shuttle my way down to the island of Cuba for the first time. It was a relaxing time with a few days spent on the beach and hanging around the pool, but it also included a few days golf on Cuba’s only 18 hole golf course – Varadero Golf Club on Varadero Beach.

Designed by Canadian architect Les Furber on behalf of the Cuban government (see some of the back story here) Varadero Golf Club is an interesting resort course built to service the visitors of the myriad of hotels in the Varadero Beach area. Built on the site of the former Dupont family estate, their summer home – the Mansion Xanadu – still sits alongside the clubhouse and makes an interesting centerpiece for the property.

With two holes along the ocean (including its signature 18th seen above), some challenging water holes on the back nine – Varadero presents a fun, yet relatively straight forward challenge of golf.

  • Good course and good Furber design. we enjoyed it, and its even better when it’s winter in Calgary. Looks dry in your pictures, which doesn’t affect play.
