Where2Golf says: 

Gavea Golf & Country Club, home to a well-rated tree-lined parkland layout, is located in São Conrado near Rio de Janeiro. Gavea is one of Brazil's best known and most exclusive golf clubs, characteristics it shares with its near neighbour, Itanhangá Golf Club.

The sometimes hilly, sometimes flatter layout at Gavea is bisected by the busy Lagao-Barra Highway. Pushing up against forested hills on its northern perimeter, the course flows down to overlook the beach on its south side. Course description, images and other details to follow soon.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
