The city of Cali is home to two nationally significant golf courses, which are not only sports venues but also hubs for social and recreational activities. Cali Country Club is one of the favorite clubs among the golfing fraternity of Colombia for several reasons.

There is a twenty-room hotel, surrounded by a forest reserve and a splendid golf course.  With luxury villas set amidst the fabulous biodiversity of the Colombian Western Mountain Range, this is the ideal place for nature-loving golfers.

The Cali Country Club course is the only one in Colombia with Bermuda Tif eagle-type grass for the greens, making it a perfect setting for major national and international events.  The Latin American PGA Tour, The Donovan Cup, the Bolivarian Games and The National Games have all been played here. The Club has also hosted the Colombian Open three times.


Club Campestre de Cali

Club Campestre de Cali/Cali Country Club’s golf course is considered one of the best in South America, as it has been upgraded to comply with USGA regulations.

Club Campestre de Cali’s golf course unfolds as a 6,946-yard, par-71 tapestry of Bermuda Tif Eagle greens and strategic challenges. Designed by Howard Watson in the 1950s, the course is a classic parkland layout, offering wide fairways lined with mature trees and strategically placed bunkers. But do not be fooled by its initial ease. Subtle undulations and well-guarded greens demand focus and precise shot execution.

The course is a classic yet strategic design. The holes are very varied and challenging, arranged in a good and demanding sequence.
The most ambitious are the  5th., 7th., 9th.  and 18th..  This in turn creates many opportunities and allows players of different levels of ability to fully enjoy the game to its fullest extent.

Two holes stand out as true tests of skill:

  • Hole 3, La Quebrada, par 4 doglegs left featuring a deep ravine flanking the fairway and a small, well-protected green, making even seasoned players sweat.
  • Hole 8, El Lago, is a picturesque par 3, with a shimmering lake guarding the front of the green, demanding a perfect shot to avoid watery consequences.

Cali has very warm weather, so it is sensible to wear lightweight and short clothing. When it comes to golf, it is essential to consider both the general dress code and the club-specific dress code. The clubs in Cali are private, meaning their policies include a dress code that must be followed. Generally, the attire is traditional but comfortable.

From a climatic perspective, Cali, like the Caribbean coast experiences high temperatures, so it is essential to have items like sunscreen, a hat and adequate hydration readily available.

With its captivating beauty, classic layout and signature challenges, Club Campestre de Cali’s golf course promises an unforgettable golfing experience for players of all levels. So pick up your clubs, embrace the tropical breeze and tee off on a Colombian golfing adventure!

Club Farallones de Cali

Positioned perfectly in the Cali surrounds, Club Farallones de Cali‘s golf course is not for the faint of heart. This championship 18-hole layout sprawls across 7,413 yards, a par-73 behemoth with stunning mountain vistas and thrilling challenges.

The course at Club Farallones de Cali is often characterized as a parkland-style layout, featuring well-manicured fairways and strategically placed hazards. The degree of difficulty is carefully balanced, offering a blend of strategic shot-making opportunities and opportunities for players to showcase their skills.

Prepare to conquer strategic doglegs, navigate tight fairways lined by dense trees and tackle the infamous 11th., the longest par 6 in Colombia. If you are a long hitter, you can be on the green in 3 strokes, then have great possibilities of making an eagle to the longest hole in our country. Thankfully, this is a par 6 and for that reason, the par at Club Farallones is 73 instead of 72.

The entire course is planted in 419 Bermuda grass and its fairways are an average of 25 yards wide. The roughs are planted in thick groups and there are a wide variety of trees, mostly native to the area, where you can see a large number of birds, as well as squirrels, iguanas and others in perfect harmony with nature. 
The greens, planted in 328 Bermuda grass, are fast and half of them have an undulating terrain.

Two signature holes stand out as a golfer’s Everest:

  • Hole 3, La Mítica: this par 4 dogleg right snakes along a precipitous drop, demanding a near-perfect drive to avoid plummeting into oblivion.
  • Hole 11, La Catedral: this legendary par 6 unfolds like a game of chess, with bunkers guarding every landing zone and a green perched 500 meters away – a test of both power and precision.

But Farallones is not just about extremes. Cali’s warm climate ensures comfortable year-round golfing, while the lush greenery and breathtaking views offer a visual feast for every swing.
The practice facilities at Club Farallones are top notch. The driving range is enormous with plenty of targets. There are several training devices at Club Farallones too, such as the training aid to check your swing.

After mastering the course, unwind in the club’s elegant clubhouse, featuring a gourmet restaurant, a comfortable bar and a swimming pool with panoramic views.

Fun fact: The club’s name, Farallones, pays homage to towering rock formations visible from the course, reminding golfers of the dramatic beauty that surrounds them.

Whether you are a seasoned pro seeking a championship challenge or a curious enthusiast drawn to the allure of the mountains, Club Farallones de Cali promises an unforgettable golfing adventure.

So prepare to breathe in the fresh mountain air and conquer the slopes of Colombian golfing majesty! The features here are an 18-hole, par 73 golf course that is remarkable for its diverse surrounding wildlife and flora.

To the west of the course, on a clear day, you can see the incredible mountain range Los Farallones and to the southeast, the amazing Nevado del Huila volcano.
