The par 3 3rd hole Bridge across to the 6th Looking through to the 12th green

Second course is in Bogotá, the San Andrés Golf Club. As we pull up in front of the impressive clubhouse, I can tell we’re in for a treat. There is a full-size practice ground; the range balls aren’t that great, better for a warm-up more than a full practice session, but there is a great chipping green.

The first thing you’ll notice about San Andrés is how tight the fairways are, so accuracy is at a premium here. The rough is not penal, but you’ll find it hard to make pars once you miss them. The first is a great indicator of the rest of the course: tight fairway, bunkers strategically placed in the driving area on both sides, and three bunkers protecting a green that slopes from back to front. At 425 yards it’s a tough opening hole, but you’ll enjoy the challenge.

What a satisfying course, I really enjoyed playing San Andrés. The par-3s are all great holes and the par-5s, especially at this altitude, are reachable apart from the 587-yard twelfth – a very tough par-5 with the avenue of trees each side of the fairway offering a claustrophobic feeling from the back tee. Water comes into play at five of the holes, two of them being on the par-3s sixth and 13th.

Picking standout holes is tough because I relish the whole course, but the sixth, seventh and 11th are especially good and all have water on them. Then the run of holes from 14th to 18th make for an exciting finishing stretch. You will enjoy the view as you play your second shot to the 18th green; it’s a reachable par-5 but the view of the clubhouse is impressive and if it’s been a beautiful Bogotá day you’ll savour that cold drink on the patio watching the others come in.
