cruises, buenos aires, argentina


I have been a resident here in La Estancia for 12 years now and golf is a big component in my life.

As any of the players here will tell you, the 18-hole Bob Cupp course is not one course, but a multitude. For example, it is one course when there is no wind, and almost an entirely different course when there is wind. In addition, playing from the strategically positioned blue tees is one thing, but step back to the yellow tees and the course dramatically changes.

As a result, ask any of us regular La Estancia golfers and they will emphatically tell you that the course never gets old.

I also have to mention the exceptional ground crew which keeps the course in tip top condition, even through winter (which here is more like Northern California, cool at night and warm and sunny in the day).

A funny ancedote about the course is that ever since it opened in 2009, we have had to cancel only one game of golf in all that time due to the weather. There may not be another golf course in the world that can match that record.

The American flagged ship was the first of 21 other confirmed cruise ships that will bring about 30,000 tourists from abroad to the port of the city, and to other national ports, since besides mooring at the Port of Buenos Aires, they will do so at the Port of Madryn and the Port of Ushuaia, and some of them will even continue south to explore the Antarctic.


“The golf course here in La Estancia de Cafayate is in pristine condition. Better than ever. I have played top courses all over the world and I would rank this course, as Bob Cupp intended, among one of the best. Not to mention the views. And the fact that as an owner I play for free!”

Stefan V., property owner.


Golf at La Estancia de Cafayate is a journey to the game’s future and past: a return to the sheer joy of play in a spectacular natural setting. Renowned designer Bob Cupp, created a world-class set of golf links. Using the natural existing forms of the land, native grasses and other organic elements, Bob has created a course that seems to have always been there.

Golf Course Architect Golf course architect, Bob Cupp, began his design career with Jack Nicklaus. After setting up his own business and accomplishing many excellent courses around the world, he created the heath style links titled the “Vintner”s Heath”. The course is a return to the sheer joy of play set in an awe-inspiring agrarian setting.

“La Estancia de Cafayate is the place where people will enjoy the natural calm and beauty of the place and the long time friendships that will emerge.”

Bob Cupp, golf course designer.


The front nine play west, into the vineyards, with the morning sun on your back; while the back nine play east, into the dunes with a spectacular backdrop of deep red mountains lit by the afternoon sun.

The golf course includes a driving range with a special three-hole practice facility and a practice green for improving the short game.
