Brazil golf round trip in 10 days
With a Brazil golf round trip in 10 days, we would suggest traveling in 3 regions. Arriving via Sao Paulo in Foz do Iguassu and stay there close to the golf club or directly at the National Park. After two nights it’s time to fly with a direct flight to Rio de Janeiro, die “Cidade Maravilhoso” how the Brazilians saying to the city of samba and carnival. Four nights is maybe a little bit short but give you a good feeling for this crazy city. But you also should plan a some days to enjoy a typical beach with palms and a romantic historic village. Let us fly to Porto Seguro and stay for three nights in Trancoso.
Foz do Iguassu
Who is traveling to Brazil has to see one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, the Iguassu Falls. It’s listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Iguassu Falls Golf Club is only 10 kilometers away from the entrance of the Iguassu National Park. A perfect combination of golf and nature.
Rio de Janeiro
If your hotel is in the correct region, for example in Sao Conrado or Barra do Tijuca you can reach all the 3 Championship Golf Courses in maximum 30 minutes.
For the first round of golf, we would suggest the Itanhanga Golf Club. With the mountains beside, it will be never so hot as in the other golf courses in Rio de Janeiro. You can acclimate much better to this complete flat golf course.
The Olympic golf course from Rio 2016 is still in a very good condition. We would say better as during the Olympic games because nature is growing more and more. Nature is taking his place and the greenkeeper team is looking carefully for the golf course.
On your way back from the Gavea Golf & Country Club to the hotel, you could drive through the tropical rainforest Tijuca and stop at the Corcovado. Enjoy watching the sun go down, on top of the 710m high mountain, beside the 38m high statue of Christ, overlooking all of Rio’s magnificent beaches and rocks in the sea. A breathtaking view it is a MUST for every visitor of Rio de Janeiro.
Trancoso – Terravista
Enjoy the beautiful beaches or various shopping opportunities in Trancoso. Good opportunity to buy traditional Brazilian crafts to bring home. 20 minutes from the village is one of the most famous golf courses in South America, the Terravista Golf Course in Trancoso.
Most of the visitors like to play this course twice or often. Because of the difficult doglegs and lots of water hazards, it is not easy to concentrate on the scenery during your first round. During the first nine holes, you will be able to enjoy the unique nature of the Atlantic rainforest and the exotic L’Occitane theatre beside the fifth fairway. Whilst the 2nd nine lead you high up to the cliffs, where you will have a stunning view over the Ocean.
Additional suggestions for golf tourists
If you come from Europe or the United States a first stop could be also in the Northeast of Brazil in Fortaleza. Around forty minutes from the airport, you can find the Aquiraz Riviera Ocean & Dunes Course. A perfect place to start your holiday because besides the course you have wonderful beaches for relaxing.
In the South of Brazil, you also could make a stop in Curitiba, there are some nice golf courses and the weather is never so hot as in the North.
A nice option would be also to organize your final destination in Sao Paulo.
