Frade Golf Club in Angra dos Reis
The Frade Golf Club is in a residential resort close to Angra dos Reis. It is around 2-hour drive from the city of Rio de Janeiro. Also just 1 hour from the historical village of Paraty. Guests are always welcome.
First resort golf course in Brazil
This first Brazilian resort golf course was designed by two British experts: Dave Thomas. and Peter Allis. The winner of the Brazil Open in 1961. The 18 holes are surrounded by the Atlantic rainforest. With the current laws of nature, there would probably no longer be any permission to build a golf course in the middle of nature.
Frade Golf Course – Renovation by Rafael Navarro
In 2007, the Frade Golf Gourse was completely reconstructed under the supervision of Brazilian professional Rafael Navarro. Therefore new greens were added to 6 holes, while the other 12 were restored. The 11th hole, for instance, has got a new tee box which is now on the top of a 45-meter-high hill. Therefore it offers an amazing view of the course and the sea around Angra dos Reis. Another hole you cannot miss is the 8th, an uphill 148-yard par 3 since the player ball must carry the ruins of a 19th-century aqueduct. It is extremely beautiful, but you must be careful otherwise your ball may get stymied behind one of the old pillars.
Hotel Fasano Angra dos Reis
In 2017, the Frade Resort opened a new chapter in its history with the opening of the Hotel Fasano Angra dos Reis. The Fasano brand is considered nationally and internationally as a synonym for high quality and excellent service. The 5-star hotel has 60 spacious apartments with sea views. A 2,000-square-meter SPA brings well-being and relaxation to everyone. Therefore the complex also has a fitness center, tennis courts and sports courts. Finally, a boulevard with shops and two restaurants with different gastronomic concepts offers variety for the evening.
