Popayán Country Club

Constructed in 1995, this social and sports club is well known as a wonderful place to escape the city routine and be amazed by the natural environment while enjoying different activities.
It is to be found in the middle of the Western and Central Colombian mountain ranges, in the Pubenza Valley, southwest Colombia.

The club has a 9-hole golf course of 2,867 yards, par 35, doubling as an 18-hole par 70, endorsed by the Colombian Golf Federation, a practice course and a putting green.

The course has very narrow fairways that can punish those who play imprecise shots and greens small in size, requiring great skill. It is a short but complicated field. Most holes have surrounding water or bunkers as obstacles.

The longest and most difficult hole is the par 5 eighth of 584 yards. With an out-of-bounds area on the right and a series of large trees on the left, it is very narrow for the first 280 yards. A water feature with bamboo trees on the right that goes almost to the center of the fairway completes the hazards.

From the tee of the ninth, you can witness the most beautiful vista comprising a mountain range with a cascading waterfall that falls towards the green of the eighth. An unparalleled view.

One of the notable features of the Popayan Country Club golf course is its signature holes. These holes are strategically positioned to offer golfers memorable challenges while providing scenic views that showcase the beauty of Popayan. Whether it is a tee shot with a backdrop of historical architecture or a green surrounded by lush greenery, each signature hole contributes to the distinctive charm of the course.
