Golf enthusiasts can anticipate some fabulous games set against incredible backdrops in South America, from glittering lakes to pre-Columbian ruins. This continent is perhaps more under the radar compared to other golfing destinations in the world, but those who venture here on a South America golfing holiday will be so glad they came.

Leading the way when it comes to top South American golf clubs is Argentina, home to around 300 courses—of which 27 are par three. Many of these are centered around Buenos Aires and the Lake District, particularly in San Martín de los Andes where the first golf courses in South America were established at the end of the 19th century. Today, you can play in amazing Argentine destinations such as El Calafate in Patagonia, the outskirts of Buenos Aires, or Cafayate in the northwest, combining golf matches with glacier-trekking, tango dancing or wine-tasting too. 

Golf in South America isn’t all about Argentina though. Brazil boasts its own share including the Olympics Golf Course in Rio, while Uruguay has some charming clubs including the Carmelo Resort on the banks of Rio de la Plata. Then there’s Chile, with fantastic courses such as Patagonia Virgín set above shimmering Lake Llanquihue, and Lima in Peru where you can actually enjoy a round next to pre-Inca ruins!
