Golf in Buzios
Búzios Golf Club
The resort town Búzios – popularized by film star Brigitte Bardot in the 1960s – is a luxury beach retreat located on a peninsula to the east of Rio de Janeiro city. With 17 beaches Búzios attracts all sorts of water sports. For those who prefer their sport on dry land, the 18-hole Búzios course fits the golfing bill nicely. The Pete Dye designed course is routed over a landscape where fairways move from areas of dense vegetation to open hillside with a number of lakes coming into play. A fun and risk-rewarding course, with 5 tee boxes; there is one that will suit any level of player. The signature hole at the 17th is an old Dye favorite, a par three played to an island green – now where have we seen that sort of short hole before?
