|An Amazon Golf Adventure in Iquitos Peru
|AMAZON GOLF COURSE
|Welcome to the Amazon Golf Course, Iquitos Peru, last outpost of
civilization. Surrounded by rivers and rainforest, Iquitos, and the
Amazon Golf Course are the most remote adventure golf destinations.
We carved the Amazon Golf Course out of 24 acres of second growth
jungle in 2004. Now, beautiful Amarillo Palm trees line the fairways,
with other palms, broadleaf trees, and shrubs landscaped in
appropriate places. Located 30 minutes by moto-kar from the tourist
center of Iquitos Peru, the adventure starts here, Welcome to Iquitos
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.
