Welcome to Chile!
It is a great honor for the Chilean Golf Federation to host the XIV South American Amateur Championship that will take place at the Los Leones Golf Club. This field is one of the most iconic in South America, since part of the history of Golf in this part of the world has been written in it, being among others, where the first Copa Los Andes was played.
For our federation, it will be a great experience and responsibility to welcome all the participants of this recognized championship, such as Players, Coaches, Referees, The R&A authorities, South America´s Delegates and all the attendees and guests of this tournament.
We want to thank the South American Golf Federation for giving us the organization of this tournament for the next two years (2019 and 2020) and finally, we want to give special thanks to The R&A for the constant and permanent support to golf, to this championship and to the Region in general.
Chile is a friendly country and stands out for lovingly receiving foreign friends, so it will be a pleasure to have them with us this week.
Felipe Bertin Puga
President Chilean Golf Federation
