Playing Golf in Bogotá - Club La Cima Via La Calera

When you arrive in Bogotá, it isn’t easy to see where one could play golf.  Green space is at a premium in the city and whilst there is one golf club nestled in amongst a suburban area in the North of Bogotá, clubs open to the public are hard to find.

Playing Golf in Bogota!One option we would recommend, however, is Club La Cima near La Calera. 

The course itself is a good test and the greens were a good standard, whilst the views and fresh air enhanced the experience thoroughly.

The green fees are cheaper during the week, and include the use of the club house, dressing rooms, sauna, bar, restaurant and practice areas. Neither caddie fee nor club hire (the club has three different standards of clubs for use) is not included in the green fee.  Weekday green fees are $45,000 whilst weekend rates are $84,000. Caddie rates are between $30-26,000. Club hire will cost between $48-000 - $69,000. Negotiation on each of these aspects is possible, though when we played, we met our young caddie on the bus and he helped us find the course, so we were pleased to have him guide us.  Golf shoe hire is not necessary.

La Cima Golf Club BogotaTo arrive at La Cima you can take a taxi from the city (the road up to La Calera starts from Calle 85 with Carrera Séptima) which will cost you (up to 50,000 COP as it is outside Bogotá)…., or you can take a bus for $2,500 from Calle 72 Kr 14 as far as Km 13 on Via La Calera and then walk up the hill, away from the reservoir on your left. After a 15-minute walk uphill, you are welcomed by friendly caddies and clubhouse staff, where you can reward yourself with a drink and this view whilst you try to remember how your golf game was last time you played.
