This October, North Carolina-based golf tour company Kalos is shifting the geography on golf destinations. Kalos is launching a 20-day, 52-guest-only tour that will have golfers hitting the links in Barbados, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and the Dominican Republic. Starting in Florida, guests will bed down at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando before jetting off to Barbados.
Once in Barbados, golfers will play the Tom Fazio-designed Green Monkey course at Sandy Lane. Peru gives guests a choice: take a private, chartered train to Machu Picchu or stay in the capital city of Lima to play at the members-only Las Inkas golf club. Santiago, Chile affords the opportunity to taste some of Chile’s best wines before heading to the high desert to play Hacienda Chicureo Golf Club.
Buenos Aires and the Olivos Golf Club, considered by many to be the finest golf club in Argentina, is next. Guests will stay at the Four Seasons Buenos Aires, which is in the middle of the trendy and bustling Recoleta neighborhood. After a three-day city stay, the tour will head to Bariloche, in Patagonia. While the initial draw is hiking and world-famous chocolate, Llao Llao Hotel & Resort will play host, offering its snow capped vistas as a backdrop to its pristine golf course. After Patagonia, Brazil is up, and the golfing takes place at two venues: Gavea Golf and Country Club and a course the 2016 Olympics took place on, which sits on a natural reserve.
Finally, the tour caps off in the Dominican Republic, where golfers will enjoy a stay at Eden Rock in Cap Cana and a round at Jack Nicklaus-designed Punta Espada Golf Club. A chartered Boeing 757 will take players back to Orlando after the tour’s conclusion. The tour starts at $94,000 per person. It looks like it’s time to brush up on your Spanish!
