Venezuela: Golf

South America's Hidden Gem

There are three private golf courses in Caracas, which are frequented by affluent Caraqueños, as well as businessmen and diplomats. Unfortunately, there are no public golf courses in Caracas. If you want to play golf while in Caracas you will need to ask your hotel (ideally a five-star one) to see if they can arrange it for you. To play at one of these private golf clubs in Caracas you will need to be a handicapped golfer with a membership card from your home club or golf association. Prices for a round of golf at a private club in Caracas are high and you may only be able to play at off peak hours. Another idea for golfing in Venezuela is to stay at one of the larger resorts on Isla Margarita, where some of the luxury five star hotels have their own golf course – a great way to enjoy the beach and golfing in Venezuela.
