A curiosity as much as a place to swing a nine-iron, this golf club lies between Vedado and the airport and is one of only two in Cuba. There are nine holes on the rough-and-rutted par-35 course. Green fees are CUC$20 for nine holes with extra for clubs, cart and caddie. The club also has tennis courts and a bowling alley

Originally titled the Rover's Athletic Club, it was established by a group of British diplomats in the 1920s, and the diplomatic corps is largely the clientele today. Fidel and Che Guevara played a round here once as a publicity stunt soon after the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. The photos of the event are still popular. Che – an ex-caddy – won, apparently.

Poor signposting makes the club hard to find and most taxi drivers get lost looking: ask locals for directions to the golfito or Dilpo Golf Club.
