THE innovative fusion sport of soccer-golf is helping Argentine courses stay afloat in testing economic times, when golfing revenue alone is often not enough to cover costly maintenance fees.

The game was played in Argentina for the first time two years ago and it is beginning to make waves across Latin America. The inaugural World Cup was held this year and featured 80 players from eight different countries. The game’s objective, like golf, is to get a regulation size-five football in the targeted hole in as few kicks as possible.
