Argentina is one of the countries in South America with the largest number of golf courses, most of these with an outstanding world reputation and quality. Golf was introduced into the country in 1879 by Henry Smith, directly from Scotland where the sport was born. Golf awoke native curiosity and by the 19th century it had become an exclusive passion in the country. Argentina mixes culture with impressive golf scenes since many of the golf courses are in the middle of breathtaking landscapes.
