Hurlingham Club (Argentina)

The Hurlingham Club of Argentina is a famous golf and polo club in Hurlingham, Buenos Aires Province. It is named after the Hurlingham Club in London and was set up in 1888 by the local Anglo-Argentine community. The town of Hurlingham and Hurlingham Partido grew up around the club, taking its name.

The club covers 73 hectares and has an 18-hole golf course, five polo fields, stables for 300 horses, schools of polo, horse riding and pony riding, 18 tennis courts including six grass courts, a cricket pitch, two swimming pools, three paddle tennis courts and an indoor complex with a gym, squash court and dressing rooms.

The club house also has elegant function rooms, restaurant and bars, plus hotel rooms available to members.
