"2020 South American Golf Cruise" ~ Click for Details

Once we discovered why it’s said “you can hear the silence” in Argentina, the choice for our newest destination was made. Patagonia is stunning. The majestic Andes reach nearly 23,000 feet into the western sky while the plateau of steppes and grasslands stretch forever on their way to the Atlantic. This is unspoiled natural beauty on a scale like New Zealand’s but twice as remote. It is the setting for eight of the eleven nights and five of the six rounds on our newest Escorted Tour our guests have already enjoyed several highly successful and well received tours to this spectacular region in 2018 & 2019.

This is a tale of two trips because we begin with four nights and ... Read More.

one round in Buenos Aires, the high energy cosmopolitan heart of Argentina. Lonely Planet writer Sandra Bao, who was born here in the capital, says “BA is sexy, vibrant and supremely confident. It looks a bit European but with edgy Latin American twist.” That’s a picture that paints itself when you remember it was Argentina that gave us the tango.  Our golf here is at the excellent Buenos Aries Golf Club, site of Tiger Wood’s and David Duval’s World Golf Championship victory in 2000.  A steak dinner at any of the parrillas (beef restaurants) in San Telmo, a trendy barrio with cobblestone streets just six blocks from Plaza de Mayo, promises the most authentic churrasco experience imaginable. We also include a Buenos Aires city tour followed by a most memorable evening with a tango dance lesson, three course dinner, and an unforgettable tango show.

Next we fly two hours southwest to San Martin de los Andes in the Patagonia Lakes Region. The city of 18,000 is tucked into a geological basin beside Lake Lácar, a glacial lake in the Andes Mountains. We’ll play Jack Nicklaus’ Chapelco Golf Club … not just once but twice! .. along with a private visit to El Desafio the one of Greg Norman’s best creations .. it is only 9 holes but is magnificent in setting and design and you will be amongst just a privileged few to play it.  After El Desafio, we’ll lunch at a delightful fishing lodge, and afterwards be trained in the basics of fly fishing. 

A tour highlight follows with our 160 mile drive south on the Camino de los 7 Lagos (The Road of the Seven Lakes) to Bariloche. This is one of world’s most scenic roadways enjoyed even more thanks to lunch on the shores of Nahuel Huapi Lake at the charming Correntosa Restaurant offering unforgettable views and superb dining.   We’ll arrive mid-afternoon at the spectacular Llao Llao Hotel & Resort, member of Leading Hotels of the World.  This grand mountain lodge, complete with exposed cypress walls and oversized stone fireplaces, is home for the next four nights in Lake View rooms.  Golfers will enjoy two rounds of golf in this area at Arelauquen and Llao Llao, non-golfers will enjoy the resort including its exceptional spa, all will enjoy our very special half day tour by private boat to Isla Victoria in the Nahuel Huapi National Park.

If you enjoy combining your love of the game with a passion for travel, you’ll find a lot to like about this escorted experience for a party of 20-24.  Arrangements are in place for every aspect of this fully managed program including golf, various meals, guided sightseeing, and local transportation.  It is an excellent opportunity for couples and individuals to join a group of like-minded future friends!

Important Information

Golf Handicap Limit: The golf courses we play around the world offer varying challenges. Players often require to be of a certain standard to properly and fully experience them in the company of likeminded fellow golfers. We therefore set a maximum permitted golf handicap to participate on our tours and cruises; The maximums are 28 for men and 36 for ladies.

Golf Courses: The included list may be subject to change in the event of any club accepting any conflicting national or international event, or for any other reason. Should such a situation occur, PerryGolf will endeavour to book a course of comparable standard, and all booked guests would be notified of the change and replacement venue at the earliest opportunity.
