Every year I organise a golf trip somewhere in the world. After much discussion we decided to go to Buenos Aires.
Amazing courses, the best meat and friendly people. My suggestion: Olivos, Buenos Aires Golf, Martindale and San Andres.
Our trip was organised by a local golf & travel company.
P.S. Night life not to be missed in Recolletta."
We played at the Jockey Club and Olivos. About 45 minutes and 1 hour from the city. Greens fees, including a caddy, was $50 (you also tip the caddy and buy him lunch). Great courses and well worth the money. The caddies were top notch as well.
Equipment Taxi ride is probably $15 - $20 each way and you should bring your own clubs. We brought way too many balls (your caddy will not let you misplace any!)
The best golf courses to play in the BA area would be the Jockey Club in San Isidro (combine a visit to the San Isidro town), the Buenos Aires Golf, the Olivos Golf Club further north and either Pilar Golf Club or Martindale C.C. in the Pilar area (35 miles north). These are the 5 top golf courses in the country. Even though they are private, they are open to public one day in the week. Usually Wednesdays or Thursdays. Don't expect to play there on weekends if you're not invited by a member. Fees are very affordable and may vary from USD 12-40
Equipment It may be difficult to find rental equipment at golf courses. Bring your own.
Not only did I play a lot of Polo in Argentina I also played Golg whih is my second love. What made Golf In Argentina so special was that I was in Buenos Aires alone and had no one to play with. But I found this Agency that arranges for visitors to play golf at the top courses in competition so you get to meet other players. Great way to meet Argentine Golfers and enjoy a round with new made friends.
Equipment Take you own clubs but you can rent
It's all about value, quality and choices. There are approximately 50 to 60 different golf courses in Buenos Aires alone! The expensive courses cost 50 USD for a round, which is less that the green fee at your average US venue on a weekend.
Equipment Bring your own clubs! Unlike the US, Europe and Japan, club rental is not common in Argentina.
Manicured lawns, man-made ponds and lagoons, large deep bunkers, plus a palatial club house distinguishes this venue from all of the other golf clubs in Buenos Aires.
When the British came to Argentina to build railroads in the the mid 1800s, it was only natural to bring their game of golf with them; thus golf courses like Los Olivos were developed.
