The Argentine Open or Abierto de la República or Abierto de Argentina is one of the oldest national golf open championships. First played in 1905, it has featured numerous notable winners including major champions Mungo Park (1905), Jimmy Demaret (1941), Lloyd Mangrum (1946), Tom Weiskopf (1979), Craig Stadler (1992), Mark Calcavecchia (1993, 1995), Mark O'Meara (1994) and Jim Furyk (1997).

The championship is part of the PGA Tour Latinoamérica, also featuring on the European Tour on one occasion, in 2001. In the subsequent years, the Argentine financial crisis later in 2001 resulted in substantially reduced prize money. From 2005 to 2008 the tournament was a fixture on the European Challenge Tour. In 2008 it was rescheduled to April, which meant that the Argentine Open appeared twice during the 2008 Challenge Tour season.

The record for most victories is held by 1967 British Open champion Roberto DeVicenzo, who won the title on nine occasions between 1944 and 1974. The next most successful players are Vicente Fernández, with eight victories over 32 years between 1968 and 2000, the last coming in a playoff against fellow Argentine, Eduardo Romero, and José Jurado, who won seven times between the 1920 and 1931.

The low amateur is presented with the Pereyra Iraola Cup.
