Montevideo, Uruguay’s capital, is a major city along Montevideo Bay. It revolves around the Plaza de la Independencia, once home to a Spanish citadel. This plaza leads to Ciudad Vieja (the old town), with art deco buildings, colonial homes and landmarks including the towering Palacio Salvo and neoclassical performance hall Solís Theatre. Mercado del Puerto is an old port market filled with many steakhouses.
Golf in Montevideo / TOP GOLF COURSES
Designed by Dr. Alister Mackenzie, inaugurated in May 1934. 18 hole course, par 73. The location of the court, which borders the city coast and its design give it a framework of hierarchy and distinction that can be observed in very few cities. The greens are wide and most are very well protected by bunkers, wooded fairways and in some cases narrow, taking several holes of their course out of bounds.
