golf in Chile

I am just beginning to plan a vacation to Chile and in addition to sightseeing am interested in golf. I understand that all golf courses are private, but certain hotels can arrange for t-times.

Of particular interest is the golf course at Magallanes Country Club at Punta Arenas. The southern most golf course in the world. Can someone recommend the hotel that can offer golf here?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

You are wrong, not all golf courses in Chile are private, but the most.

In Santiago there is a brand new public golf course, check out http://www.golfmapocho.cl/

In Marbella Resort, a hotel in Maitencillo, central coast, there is another public golf course, check out http://www.marbella.cl/

In La serena there is a beautiful golf course that is public as well, check out http://www.laserenagolf.cl/club_golf.htm

Then in any major city you can find golf courses. If you stay in a good hotel surely they will be able to arrange a match there for you.

In the case of P. Arenas, i guess that if you are staying at the Cabo de Hornos or Jose Nogueira certainly they will do the arrangments for you.

I also found email contact for the Magallanes Country Club itself if the hotels can't help you. Scroll down to the last entry:
