Los Chillos Golf Club, Golf Courses, Tourist Activities
No matter what country you visit, golf and money are two things that go together. Equipment and memberships are expensive and even if you are able to play golf or enjoy a few swings at the nearest driving range now and then, you need to have at least some money in order to do so. For this reason, golf clubs are usually the almost exclusive territory of the well-to-do. The best facilities are almost always combined with top-rate architecture and a certain level of class. In Ecuador, such exclusive clubs are designed to cater to more than just golfers and other popular sporting activities are often incorporated into the club’s facilities. Club Los Chillos is one such place.
Club Los Chillos was founded in 1979 as a nine-hole golf course. The course is a par 72 and has a course rating of 34.5. It is located just 30 kilometers from Quito and is easily reached by the freeway. Once you are here you can enjoy the 11 lakes, the driving range and the spectacular mountain and forest scenery. Club Los Chillos is located approximately 2,600 meters above sea level so you can be sure that you will almost always be able to enjoy good weather and spectacular views. Apart from the golf course, members can also enjoy clay tennis courts, racquet facilities, squash courts, soccer fields, volley ball facilities, swimming pools and equestrian facilities that are mainly used by members of the Los Chillos Equestrian Club. For those who are only attending in support of their more sporting family members or for members just looking for a way to relax, the club has a sauna, hairdressing salon, cafeteria, bar and Turkish bath. It also caters well to people with babies.
The club puts a strong emphasis on playing golf and, as such, offers both adults and school children the opportunity to learn to improve their game with the help of a golfing professional. It also regularly hosts internal matches and sporting events to encourage healthy competition and members of the club enjoy participating in national matches. If you are planning to travel with family then the Club Los Chillos is the perfect club for you. Become a member today and enjoy these great facilities on your next vacation!
