Bespoke Cuban Holidays for the Discerning Traveller

Havana Beach Golf

Cuban Golf Holiday – 4 Days

The exquisite white-sand peninsula of Varadero is about 2 hours by road from Havana, and its international golf course, with resident PGA pro, occupies a unique site overlooking the best beach and turquoise seas in Cuba. Our hotel is either the 1930s mansion, Xanadu, an exclusive six-bedroom house with a la carte restaurant and Cuba’s best wine cellar, or the Melia 5* Las Americas. Both are next to the course.

The course is an International 18-hole green suitable for professionals and novices alike, and it plays host to the PGA championships.

Extra days can be added on to discover more of the island.

The Gran Torneo de Cuba Golf Tournament, Varadero Cuba

Formerly known as The Montecristo Cup, this 18 hole international tournament takes its name from the world’s most famous cigar produced by Habanos (the sole distributer worldwide for Cuban cigars). It is played on the island’s only international course in Varadero – Cuba’s no.1 holiday destination. It attracts a high level of players from UK, Canada, Spain, Russia, China, and Korea among others.

Following the phenomenal success of previous events which have had Ernie Els and Alvaro Quiros as guests of honour, we are delighted to announce the fifth edition of the tournament which will take place on April 11th-13th, 2014.

The ex professional golfer, Tony Jacklin is also scheduled to attend both events and play an exhibition match with another world class golfer on the 13th. The Pro-Am competition will again be organised by Esencia Hotels and Resorts and Habanos as well as the Cuban Government agency responsible for Golf, Palmares SA.
