Gávea Golf & Country Club
Gávea Golf & Country Club has already been featured in Golf Digest magazine as on of the 50 best golf courses in the world outside in United States. The course is unique not only for is laytout which demands ability from the player on account of its many and different hazards and obstacles but above all for its exuberant landscape which surrounds the course.

Holes 10 to 15 are set on a flat area alongside the São Conrado beach, and the others wind their way across an undulating area at the foot of Gávea Rock and Tijuca Forest. From some holes, it is possible to catch a glimpse of the Guanabara Bay, a precious part of nature. Although it is a private course, the club works together with some hotels in the city such as the Intercontinental Rio adjacent to the golf course. It is therefore a good choice for tourists visiting Rio. On Saturdays and Sundays the course is for members only.
