As a golf & travel destination, we received from the IAGTO association (International Assoc. Golf Tour Operators) the award of “Golf Destination of the Year” during 2008 and 2011.
Today this amazing destination has more than 300 courses but first golf bag arrived in Buenos Aires in 1879.
Carried by Henry Smith, it came directly from Scotland, the undisputed cradle of the sport. Golf awoke native curiosity and by, 19th century was showing unequivocal sign of becoming an exclusive passion.
Argentina mixes culture with impressive golf scene. It’s about teeing off against the spectacular backdrop of the Andes, glacier-fed lakes and verdant forests. It can also be about exploring the tango parlors and nightlife of Buenos Aires, the so-called “Paris of South America.” If you go, partake of it all.
Many of the golf courses are in the midst of breathtaking scenery and with plenty of après-play. Patagonia’s Llao Llao Golf Resort, for instance, is located within the Nahuel Huapi National Park, with its enormous crystal-blue lake and a diversity of flora and fauna that’ll knock your soft spikes off.
