Varadero Golf Club, the first 18 hole Golf Course in Cuba, was designed by architect Les Furber, President of the Canadian company Golf Design Services LTD (GDS).
Three types of design were combined at Varadero Golf club, First a Classic design, broad roads bordered by trees, wide and scarcely protected greens.
Second a Challenging or Target Golf design, modern style with narrow roads and heavily protected greens surrounded by sand traps and lakes. The Varadero Golf Course has several salt water lakes that connect directly with the sea, a feature that makes it almost unique worldwide.
Thirdly a Links design, with holes located alongside the sea following the shoreline, introducing the ocean as another obstacle in the game.
