México Golf School – Host Course
Club de Golf Malinalco
Mel Sole’s Mexico Golf School’s host course is located at Club de Golf Malinalco, approximately 90 minutes drive southwest of México City. The golf course construction at Malinalco was completed in eleven months. This was a record in México, since the typical golf course takes two to three years to build.
This 18 hole, par 72 course features dramatic elevation changes, strategically placed bunkers, fescue fairways and undulating bent grass greens. At 7000 ft above sea-level, the ball flies much further and the course plays a little shorter than the 7151 yards marked on the scorecard from the back tees. Forward tees put the holes well within reach of higher handicappers.
Many consider Malinalco to be the best golf course in México. In 1993 it was host to Mexican PGA tournament. In addition, the Mexican Golf Federation holds a very prestigious annual amateur tournament at Malinalco. Invitees come from Mexico as well as South America. Each year a country’s Ambassador to México hosts the annual Diplomat tournament at Malinalco.
With the vivid bougainvillea flowers and mountains framing every hole, Club de Golf Malinalco provides both a scenic and challenging test of golf. Green fees for Mel Sole Golf School Students is $80 Monday to Friday. $160 Saturday and Sunday. Plus Caddy Fee and Tip.
