Overview

The Amazon Golf Course is a difficult nine hole adventure with a par 5. It's not so much birdies and eagles; more like boas in the rough, caiman sunning in the sand traps, piranhas lurking in the water holes. It is the only course in the world where golfers are issued a machete to carry in their golf bag. Please, avoid the anaconda.The Amazon Golf Course is Pay and Play Golf at $25 for 18 holes, includes 12 balls, clubs, and machete, additional balls $1 per ball.

Go and play the golf course here if you are rich, easily pleased, and/or have nothing better to do. Your 75 soles clearly doesn't go into up keeping the course - the greens are so bad it is like putting in the rough. HOWEVER, you...More

This does not resemble and "golf course" I have ever played. The fairway had very little grass but what it did have was about 5 inches high. The green were about like a fairway should be. You can strike a put that would go 40...More

It's worth a visit for the entertainment factor. The rough was really rough and near impossible to find your ball once it disappeared in it. Fairways are narrow and challenging. We rented golf clubs and as many balls as they could provide us but many...More

Loved the atmosphere. Tough course, the fairways are like our rough. Greens interesting but the exotic atmosphere the key!
