Organized, safe, modern. Very different from any other place in Brazil.
Far from other Brazilian cities, made for cars only
In a nutshell
Safe but the city lacks much ativity. But good day trips nearby
Golf. Do I need to say more?
To anyone that play golf, this is an interesting golfcourse. Designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones, it is a beautiful golfcourse with greens that was typical for that time. Small. And a lot of bunkers. And on some holes have water in play. One of the holes is played over a small bay of the lake. Very beautiful.
There is a great variety of trees along the course and I hope the club can update their pages with some more information about it because this is a bit special. A professor collected and planted trees here.
During the season, you can actually find food along the golfcourse. What I am talking about? Mangoes! There are a lot of mangotrees and in the right season you can pick what you want.
According to people from the club, the fairways soak up the rain very well, so even during the rainseason you can play. And the rain normally comes in the afternoon, so if you start early you will have a nice round before the rain comes.
No matter what time of year you play, it is definitely an advantage to start early. Then you avoid the heat as much as possible.
One word about the driving range. It is too far away. Next to the small Pro Shop, you find a putting green and a chipping green. But the driving range is 2 km up the road.
Some time ago the club was in a very bad condition, and it is still recovering. But it was a joy to play it and definitely a course worth playing.
One word of warning - The Pro Shop and the club do not accept creditcards. Only the restaurant. So bring cash for the greenfee and for any equipment you need to rent or purchase.
Equipment: I brought my glove and golfshoes.
I rented clubs and managed to find some that were not too old. If you can bring your own clubs, that is definitely preferrable.
A caddie will be of good help.The one I got was a 20 hcp himself and he knew the course very well. And for the price, 50 Rials if I remember correctly, it is well worth it.
