Buzios Golf Club in the state Rio de Janeiro
The only golf course in Brazil designed by the legendary Pete Dye, Buzios Golf Club. Dye is famous for designing difficult courses. In Buzios, it is no different. Situated on a narrow peninsula, the fairways are subject to unrelenting winds. Which not only make the balls change their direction in mid-flight. But also force the players to have second thoughts before picking a club from the bag. When you least expect it you will need your 5 wood that normally could be reached the green with a pitching wedge.
Leisure in Buzios
If the winds make your game too complicated, you can go to one of the 25 beaches in the city and enjoy life. Buzios became world-famous thanks to movie star Brigitte Bardot. She was a regular visitor in the 60s. Afterward, take a stroll in the city center down Rua das Pedras Street where the main restaurants and stores are located. You can also savor a drink by the shore at sunset, sitting beside the statue of Brigitte Bardot. Which will surely help you forget about the winds and clear your mind so you can face the course once again on the following day.
