I have been fortunate enough to have had business in Chile, and over the years made many friends, including Juan Andres, Alejandro, Mattias and many others including Joaquin, Eduardo, Axel. I love this country. Its a bastion of sensibility in a land mass that's prone to very poor economic performance, corruption and instability.
I did not play this course, but passed it when visiting some friends in Zappilar, a lovely seaside resort about 90 minutes from Santiago.
Here's a couple the loads of pics I have of Santiago, plus one of my good friend Mattias who bravely lent us his car to make the trip into Mendoza. plus a couple of pics of the beach town. In the midst of the bathers, Gill is splashing around with the then President of Chile. That is true!
And we found the golf course naturally...
Gill and I made the trip to Chile in 2012, borrowed a dear friend's car and drove from Santiago into Mendoza over the border in Argentina. That is an amazing trip and one I would thoroughly recommend.
Thats us with the Aconcagua mountain in the background, and then in Mendoza with our dear friends Paul and Anna. We had a fabulous trip.
