Javier Pintos

I live in Marbella (Spain) since December 2020 after living all my life in Argentina except for 2 years in Dominican Republic and currently play off a 2 handicap. Since 2004 I have worked in the golf industry, having been General Manager at Punta Blanca GC (Dominican Republic) and after that developing Lets Golf Argentina and WeGolf Argentina, Golf Tour Operators based in Buenos Aires. My job has taken me to some of the world’s top venues such as Pine Valley, Cypress Point, Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Shinnecock Hills, St Andrews Old Course, Carnoustie, Royal Dornoch, Oak Hill, Winged Foot, National Golf Links, Seminole, Turnberry, Muirfield and many more. My favourite courses are Oakmont and Winged Foot West and every course in Scotland. I am a Member at Golf Club Argentino and Royal Dornoch.
