Argentina: Best Golf Destination in Latin America
Argentina was chosen as the best golf destination in Latin America in Murcia, Spain, where the World Golf Awards were presented. Tourism Minister of Argentina, Gustavo Santos, stressed that “Argentina continues to demonstrate that it is a top-level international tourist destination, where visitors from all over the world can combine playing golf with stunning landscapes and excellent cuisine and services”.
Argentina was nominated along with Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Uruguay. The “Golf Destination” award has been given since 2014, and Argentina has always been nominated among the top 5. The country won in 2014, 2015 and now 2017.
Along with this new recognition, Argentina was chosen as the best gastronomic destination in South America at the World Travel Awards this year, after five consecutive years of Peru winning the title.
Argentina has the largest number of golf courses and the largest population of golfers in South America due, in part, to its climatic conditions and the quality of the courses.
