Being at the heart of a vibrant capital city, Lima Golf Club has established itself as the premier Club in Peru and one of the most renowned in South America. It may now be surrounded by high rise blocks, but a glance at its history shows that the course preceded all that now surrounds it.
The practice facilities at the Club were lacking in both quality and quantity and so the first step was to look at how a world class practice facility could be developed within the restricted boundaries. The final design led to a slight reshuffling of the course with a new green at the 8th, a brand new par 3 9th to replace the short par 4 that previously existed, and the realignment of the 1st and 10th holes.
A new short game area was built as well as a new ‘Limalayas’ putting green next to the clubhouse, another feature built with St Andrews in mind, this time the famous ‘Himalayas’ green being the inspiration.
