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.

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 feet on a real green and it would go 10 feet on the greens and there was no such thing as a true roll. Don't waste your time diving the 40 minutes from the center of town for this disappointment.

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 were burned and sliced- part of the hazards of golf in the Amazon.

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

It's nothing fancy, but it is a very fun and unique experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful too.

what a great surprise,theres a great 9 hole golf course here in Iquitos,Peru !!
they have 9 holes,2 x par 3 and 1x par 5,the rest par 4. the 4th is an island par 3.
lots of water hazards (real hazards as theres piranihas in some of them ! ) plus sand traps ( lovelly white sand ),supposed to be some cayman and snakes around,but didnt see any , thanks !!
the whole course although relatively new, is beautiful. when the trees etc. grow a bit more it will be fantastic.
cost only $20 for 2 rounds. plus theres a good practise range,if like me you havent played for a while.
you can also hire golf clubs, have a beer or two,soft drinks,and if you need a bit of help thats available too from the really friendly staff.
cant recommend it enough, we had a great day out
