Varadero Golf Club is a links design that covers a narrow 3.5 km strip of property on the Hicacos Peninsula. It plays to par 72 and is 6,856 yards from the back tees.

Eight of the holes feature water hazards and bunkers dot the sides of the fairways. The sand traps that guard the large greens are not overly intimidating. They make for a challenge that allows golfers of all ability levels to muster up the nerve to have a go at the pins.
