Golf started in Scotland around the mid-15th Century. The earliest
record of golf comes from King James II of Scotland who, in 1457,
forbade the playing of golf and football because he felt that
his archers were not dedicating enough time for their practice
of archery. In 1754 the Society of St.. Andrew’s Golfers
was created, but it wasn’t until 1843 that the St Andrew’s
Golf Club was founded.
In Argentina, St. Andrew’s Society of the River Plate organises
its Golf tournament every October with the object of fostering
this traditional Scottish sport. The San Andrés Golf Club
have played host and helped organise this event for over a 100
years. The objective of this tournament is to provide an opportunity
for golfers throughout the country to participate in this highly
regarded legendary sport. The community is invited to enjoy this
event which ends with the performance of the SASRP Pipe Band.
