Proposed Golf Course Rejected

As we posted earlier, plans had been submitted by Jack Nicklaus to create a 552 hectare (1,364 acres) golf course, hotel and subdivision of high class homes.

ANBariloche is reporting that the proposal was turned down.

According to the Planning Secretary the reasons for disapproval were in response to concerns for Mother Nature.

The report cited protection of the wetlands, overall security of the environmental preservation as well as dividing the subdivision as reasons for the denial.

    I think there are enough golf courses with high class homes all over the world in locations that need to be protected. It would be nice to have some locations without fertilizer run off contaminating pure water sources and clean nature. Even though I’m an avid golfer, I am happy they were turned down for constructing a course. Nicklaus is building the same thing right now in Frutillar, Chile, one of my favorite vacation spots. Hopefully the lake and nature doesn’t become contaminated.

    Thanks for the news update and I really enjoy the site. I’ve been reading almost daily since you began. Keep up the good work.

    I am very glad that (in Argentina) Mother Nature was consulted before constructing a Golf course.

    Best.
