Guaruja Golf Club in the state Sao Paulo
The Guaruja golf club in the state Sao Paulo is around 90 minutes’ driving from the center of Sao Paulo. The location of the golf club is in Pernambuco, only 3 blocks from one of the most famous beaches on the island. Especially in the afternoon, not many golfers are playing on the course. You will get the feeling that you are in a bird park. Herons flying over the lakes or waiting for fishes. Owls are looking out of their homes at some bunkers and on the fairway, the “kero-kero” birds are fighting with ducks. Sometimes you also can see a flock of red or green birds. A paradise not only for playing golf. The Guaruja golf club wants to be the best 9-holes course in Brazil. We believe it can be. After you game a very good option is to enjoy the beach. Guaruja is a perfect place to stay some days for relaxing.
The Guaruja Golf Course
The Guaruja Golf Club is an official 9-hole course. Because the course has 10 different fairways and 11 greens it?is more than just 9 holes. Especially the course is very challenging. Therefore in most of the holes water is in the game, if not you have a good chance to lose your ball in the forest or in one of the villas beside the fairways. Therefore the 11 holes are very different. Doglegs left and right, whether your favorite curve is a draw or fade none is preferred. As you have to play for 18 holes the course twice you have a second chance to play it better. But some changes you will have in the second round. On the homepage of the Guaruja Golf Club, you can read their vision. They want to be the best 9-holes course in Brazil.
Details of the Guaruja Golf Course
The first hole of the Guaruja golf course is a short par 5 and if you play it as the tenth it is a par 4 from a tee more in front. The same as the 9 and the 18. Only there, you have two different greens. The hole 8 a par 4 with a dogleg to the right you only will play once. Because in the second round the hole 17 is a short Par 3 to an island green. It was built in 1998 and is the signature hole of the Guaruja Golf Club. Remembering on the famous 17th at TPC-Sawgrass what was constructed 18 years before. Take care of the green they are much quicker as in most of the golf clubs in Sao Paulo.
