Eisenhower Trophy in Argentina

Imagine you have been looking forward to something for a really long time. You have been through all sorts of planning processes as you are determined to get things right for the important event that is to come up. Just as you are nearing the finish line and all is looking great, a spanner is thrown in from the side and you have no chance to prepare for it.

I am guessing that must be what it is like to be the Argentinean Golf Federation in charge of organising this year’s Eisenhower Trophy. This is no small operation to try and get right. With some 70+ teams from all over the world coming together for a week of competition it takes some logistical intelligence to do it properly. I bet you could do without the government then throwing in a National Holiday, a so called census, on the final practice day!

As the whole country closes down some 300 people directly involved with the Eisenhower Trophy will be looking for things to do without golf, shops, sightseeing tours, restaurants and whatever you can think of that a major city would normally have to offer. I think that could be quite an interesting way to prepare for the World Championships!

As England start the tournament on Thursday I will of course try to keep regular updates going on this blog.
