Was fortunate to play Gavea two days while visiting Brazil. Let me just sum it up in one word - wow! I've golfed many places around the world. Gavea is now at the top of my list. Views are simply amazing. Short course but the...More

Tremendous views, interesting and undulating scenic course. Caddies were a nice touch. Even though only 14 holes available because ocean side holes are being reconstructed, we still had a great round!

This is only a par 68 but make no mistake, you need to shape your shots to survive! The course is beautiful with maybe hole 10, 12, 14 as exception (they lie on other side of the road). The stretch from 1-9 and 15-18 is...More

The course is superb, well kept and challenging, and the views of the Sea from the higher holes is incredible. The locker room is nice and the showers are fitted with first class local ammenities. The food at the restaurant is amazing too.

Playing Gavea Golf and Country Club was a thrilling experience. I certainly hope to play it again in future. Contending with the breathtaking views and tricky layout was a pleasant challenge.

This is a beautiful course. Up, down, with amazing views. The caddies are great too.. Only thing is they have this colonial arrogance still, and seem to only want rich people to play. Plus they only accept cash! And the nearest ATM is miles away,...More
