Our Tournaments for 2012 are an ideal chance to pit yourself agains some of the best golf courses South America has to offer.   From the golf courses to your accommodation, meals and full time coordination, this 3 centre tour gives you an amazing top quality Argentina experience.

Buenos Aires Golf ClubDay 1 – Arrive in Buenos Aires where you will be greeted by our staff and transferred to our hotel.  You will then have the rest of the day to relax or to spend as you wish.  In the evening, we will enjoy an opening gala dinner at the hotel.

Day 2 – This will be the first day of golf on the tour, and it will be played at Pilar Golf Club, set in the pleasant, undulating hills outside the capital.  After this first day of golf, we will attend a wine tasting evening in the local area.

Day 3 – Today we will go on a tour of Buenos Aires, taking in not only the elegant architecture and attractive colonial streets, but also getting a taste of the rich history of this fascinating city.  We will stop for lunch in the exclusive neighbourhood of Puerto Madero.

Day 4 – Set in the heart of Buenos Aires, the San Andrés golf course is not only an excellent course, but is also the oldest in Argentina and is the perfect venue for the second round of the tournament. The sensual tango dance is the beating heart of Buenos Aires, and in the evening we will enjoy dinner and a performance at one of the best shows in the city.

Day 5 - On this day we will once again leave the hustle and bustle of the city to play at Olivos Golf Club - one of the finest in Argentina.  After putting our skills to the test, we will enjoy an evening meal at a top-class restaurant in Puerto Madero.

Day 6 - Today we will exchange the neatly mowed lawns of the golf courses for the rugged terrain inhabited by the famous Argentine gaucho on an estancia tour, with delicious traditional food and an impressive show performed on horseback.

Day 7 – After flying to San Martin de los Andes, we will spend a few hours in this picturesque town situated in the midst of the Andes mountains.  In the evening we will enjoy a meal at our hotel in Chapelco.

Chapelco golf courseDay 8 – Few golfers can boast of having played in a location as breathtaking as Chapelco, with immaculately kept grounds giving way to dramatic scenery.  After playing at Chapelco, we will take the spectacular drive to the world-famous Llao Llao hotel near Bariloche. Though this iconic building is a tourist attraction in its own right, the highlight of your stay will no doubt be the dazzling beauty of your surroundings.

Day 9 – Surrounded by lakes Nahuel Huapi and Moreno, the excellent 18-hole course at Llao Llao is well integrated into the landscape, and on this day we will enjoy playing at this most impressive of venues.  For those not playing, there is an abundance of  activities on offer at Llao Llao, notably the luxurious spa and health club.  In the evening, there will be a special prize-giving ceremony with a meal at the hotel.

Day 10 – In the morning, we will enjoy a lake excursion with lunch. After flying to Buenos Aires in the afternoon, you will enjoy a free day to spend at ease in the pleasant streets and cafés of the bohemian Argentine capital.  Our staff will be happy to suggest activities and restaurants, but those who wish to explore independently will be free to do so.

Day 11 – Today is the last day of the tour, though it is likely to be the beginning of a lifelong love for Argentina.  You will be taken to the international airport for your flight home.  Should you wish to see more of Argentina, we would be happy to arrange extension tours to one of the many other destinations we offer around Argentina and Latin America.
