Founded in 1912 by British railway workers, the La Paz Golf Club
members built a 9-hole course in a suburb of the city El Alto, but
the course has long since moved to the nearby Mallasilla area of La
Paz. Laid out at a dizzying height of 3048 metres (10,800 ft), the
La Paz Golf Club is established 18-hole golf course can stake its
claim has the highest golf course in the world. With breathtaking
views of the Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley) below, well maintained
greens and rolling fairways, the course was rated by Golf Digest
among the most attractive courses on earth. Probably one of the
most exciting holes on the course is the 12th hole, where the
island tee box is reached by two bridges and golfers are required
to drive the ball 180 yards (165m) to the verdant fairway across
the plummeting gorge below - an experience of a lifetime!
