What the Golf Tourist should expect in Argentina

Well maintained golf courses

The golf courses in Argentina are of a high quality. Not known for it’s golf Argentina has over 300 golf courses. The views around the golf courses are often spectacular with the Andes mountains as a backdrop!

Extremely Friendly Welcome

A greeting would probably take the form of a kiss on either cheek or indeed a handshake. Argentinians are very tactile and you may have something said to you ( if you are female) as you walk past an Argentinian male. It isn’t to be seen as offensive, just cultural differences and a compliment.

The Culture

There is a very big Mediterranean influence in Argentina, Spain and Italy are the two prominent influencers hence the Latin temperament.

Things to do

Exploring different parts of Argentina would be part of any great trip. Beunos Aries is full of life and city experiences, bars to dance in, superb restaurants and sightseeing. In the Mendosa area, we have the vineyards and excellent wine houses to go and taste the produce ( in moderation of course!), the Andes and Patagonia. So much to see and do.

Dress codes

There isn’t a formal dress code in Argentina for going out, eating etc. Smart casual is the order of the day. Golf courses are the usual shorts and golf polo.

Food & Drink

The staple of the country is meat, steaks are in abundance. You can find steak bars on nearly every street corner. BBQs are extremely popular. Argentinian steak, chimichurri sauce, and an excellent Malbec! Sound good after a round of golf? Does to me!
