GARZÓN, URUGUAY– Garzón Tajamares Golf, a private championship 18-hole golf course located on a 10,000-acre estate 15 miles from the glamorous Uruguayan beach town of José Ignacio, signed a partnership agreement with the PGA TOUR at TPC Sawgrass during THE PLAYERS Championship. Paul Johnson, PGA TOUR Executive Vice President of International Affairs, represented the TOUR as Garzón Tajamares Golf became the first “PGA TOUR Preferred Golf Course.” Garzón Tajamares Golf is a part of The Garzón Club, South America’s newest private club, founded by international vintner Alejandro Bulgheroni. Angel Cabrera, a three-time PGA TOUR winner, designed the course.
The designation of “PGA TOUR Preferred Golf Course” elevates a golf course’s brand, amplifies marketing communications and allows a course to associate with the PGA TOUR.
“Working with the great Angel Cabrera, the design and construction of Garzón Tajamares has been a labor of love, with meticulous attention paid to every detail as we transformed a vision into reality,” said Bulgheroni. “To be recognized by the PGA TOUR with the great honor of being named the first PGA TOUR Preferred Golf Course in the world is beyond our fondest hopes. We look forward to welcoming golfers from around the world to our slice of heaven here in Garzón, Uruguay.”
“We are extremely pleased to enter into this agreement with Garzón Tajamares Golf. We are thrilled at the growth of golf on the continent, and our presence in Uruguay shows the PGA TOUR’s commitment to golf in Latin America. Garzón Tajamares Golf will be a destination for golfers from all over the world, and we’re happy to have the course as our partner,” Johnson said.
With a sweeping landscape, Garzón Tajamares Golf sits amongst olive groves, chestnut fields, almond trees and seven natural lakes. The course measures 7,000 yards and is a par-72 layout that includes a full practice facility and a relaxing bar at the turn. The championship course presents a challenge for both professional and amateur players who enjoy exploring every hole in one of the most stunning settings in South America. The club offers instruction for both adults and children by PGA-endorsed professionals.
