Argentina keeps generating actions to position itself in the golf tourism sector in the Americas. After the agreement between Inprotur and PGA Tour, Latinoamérica which brought about a strategic alliance, Argentine golf tourism started to have a major presence in various sectors.
Both the PGA Tour Latinoamérica in the US and the Bucaramanga tournament (Colombia) were two major events which put Argentina in the spotlight and allowed our country to hold meetings with various international tour operators.
In this respect, the Inprotur team held meetings with officials of American Airlines, Expedia, the PGA Tour Latinoamérica and the competing Argentine golf players, aimed at generating promotional actions in Bucaramanga, where another date of the PGA Tour took place, as the ANATO fair was being held in Bogotá.
During the tournament, meetings were also held with the Chairman of the PGA Tour Latinoamérica, to strengthen our presence and increase our visibility, as well as with various golf tour operators, which bring groups of over 500 players to Mexico, the US, the Caribbean and even Europe.
In this connection, Andrés Cuellar, owner of Golf Fest, said they organize “international trips of Colombian and Mexican golf tourists as well as players from Florida, USA, to various destinations worldwide”.
He added they are “really interested in going to Argentina; we know several golf courses there and are looking forward to their reopening. We would also like to hold a major event for amateur players, so they can visit Buenos Aires, the south of Patagonia and all the wonderful places in that beautiful country”.
American golf player Brandon Mathews pointed out that “Argentina is absolutely beautiful, every time I was there I played in very good places, which I really liked. Buenos Aires is definitely amazing, but the place where we played the Neuquén Argentina Classic in San Martín de los Andes, is probably one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to”.
