Argentina

Map of Argentina

Argentina is synonymous with soccer or specifically Diego Maradona who seemingly single-handedly removed England from more than one World Cup campaign. But Argentina is one Latin American country where Europeans and even the English will feel at ease. Corned beef, the sultry tango, Buenos Aires and, naturally, football come to mind when thinking of Argentina.

The British brought golf to Argentina at the end of the 19th century and laid out rudimentary courses around San Martin. By the time Lomas Golf Club was founded in 1892, many Argentines had already adopted the new sport. Asociación Argentina de Golf was founded in 1926 and there are currently 243 registered golf courses, which include 27 par three courses. The AAG manages the handicaps of some 43,494 affiliated players throughout Argentina and there are more than 30 official golf competitions.

The Robert Trent Jones Jnr-designed course at Termas de Rio Hondo Golf Club opened for play in the summer of 2018. Planted in paspalum grass throughout, the layout occupies a large wetland and marshland area next to the local motorsport track and the new Las Termas Airport, incorporating natural ravines and vegetation into the course routing.
