“We are very excited about bringing this event to one of the best golf courses in South America. Jack Nicklaus and his son Jacky did an amazing job designing a world-class course. It’s a great addition to one of the best tournaments on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica schedule, and we thank Chapelco Golf Club for being a key partner to put all the pieces together to take the Neuquén Argentina Classic to a new level. This is going to be a great event,” said tournament promoter Germán Galli of Golf Play.
Supported by the Ministry of Tourism of the province of Neuquén, the Neuquén Argentina Classic will give the golf world an opportunity to learn about San Martin de los Andes, a breathtaking tourist destination unlike any other the Tour has visited since its launch in 2012
“After playing in different courses throughout Buenos Aires, we welcomed the challenge of moving this event down South, to Neuquén. The support provided by the Neuquén Minister of Tourism, Marisa Focarazzo, and by the Neuquén Governor, Oscar Gutiérrez, was undoubtedly huge,” added Galli. “Tourism-wise, this is a great opportunity for Neuquén, San Martín de los Andes and Chapelco to let golfers around the world know about its multiple attractions.”
