The Project To Install A Golf Course At The Hippodrome Fell Into A Hole

Once the consensus has been reached, some rough edges have been filed, in a few days a general program will be presented in public with the guidelines. It was confirmed after an internal meeting that councilors held with members of the Municipal Production Secretariat, until December 10. At the meeting, some precepts of the project were explained, in the hands of the Planning Secretariat. The launch was to be today, Friday, at 4:30 p.m., in principle, at the Independence Park property, but the activity was suspended until further notice.

There is something striking in the next presentation: the option to transform the central oval into a golf driving may not appear, an idea that already excited some entrepreneurs. On the other hand, commercial, gastronomic and sports activities will be programmed on the premises, so that those who want to walk through the area without having to do something related to turf can do so.

In the sports category, as had been established, a central half oval will remain for the Higher Institute of Physical Education. As for the turf, the activities that take place each weekend will continue since it is estimated that there are 600 families who live directly from the maintenance of the horses and other tasks.

As for golf driving (which is only used to practice shooting with clubs), everything seems to indicate that it has frozen. “Without double reading it could have contributed to popularize the sport”, they argued in the Council. These statements are intertwined with others of a political nature, made by the mayor, weeks ago, when the mayor called the opposition arch to a meeting to discuss four points and none of its members decided to attend. Gandolla had argued that a habitual socialist criticism of Menemism was precisely the practice of golf that former president himself promoted. Something that is supposed to contradict the discourse of socialism. The underlying reason, as far as could be confirmed, would have been not to offer the opposition a flank for criticism in an election year.

The Call For Bids For The Hippodrome Includes Three Central Areas:

1) Remodeling of the member stands and the launch of a new high-quality gastronomic venture. The tender will also include an indoor bar for turf fans. Emphasis will be placed on proposals from companies linked to the gastronomic sector

2) Commercial premises space. It will be a proposal aimed at brands that are related to equestrian activity.

3) Golf Driving Range, will be located in the central oval. It will be a golf training space. The Municipality will have the advice of the Rosario de Golf Association for the design of the specifications so that the proposal adjusts to the demands of this sport. It is the point that until today has been decided to “freeze”.
