I live in Buenos Aires and currently play off a 0 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, Kiawah Island, Turnberry, Muirfield and many more. My favourite courses are Pine Valley and Royal County Down. I am a Member at Golf Club Argentino and I belong to the Golf Committee of the Club.
