“Augusta in the Amazon - The Only Golf Course in the Amazon”
Review of Amazon Golf Course

Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Not much sleep last night as the anticipation of playing the Augusta in the Amazon is more than I can bear. Looking down the number one fairway of the most beautiful golf course in the Amazon, I realize how long it has been since I touched a golf club. My caddie is beside me and suggesting an 8 iron for the beginning par 3.

It's a little hard to see exactly where the flag is because it is only three feet tall and no GPS here. In fact there are no carts, no cart paths and my caddie is carrying a machete. Not so much for protection, although many have run across a boa constrictor or an anaconda on the course, more to mow down the rough if you happen to land there. Which is a distinct possibility since the whole course is rough. After all this is the best course in the Amazon primarily because it is the "only course in the Amazon".

We got out early and caught up with the greens crew mowing number 3 green with a weed eater. Well we got a half mowed green, what more do you want, just stay on the short side. They have two weed eaters and a couple of machetees to keep the course groomed immaculately; well almost immaculately.

Unique rules for this course, if you lose your ball in the fairway you get a free drop. It's an automatic two putt if you put it close, no need to run the score up and it is difficult to pull the flag from the water bottle that has been buried to hold it in place.
