Amazon Golf Club
Amazon Golf Club information
Amazing as it may seem, you can play a round or two on the nine holes of the only course in the entire Amazon. Founded in 2004 by a bunch of nostalgic expats, the 2140m course was built on bushland just outside Iquitos and boasts, apart from its nine greens, a wooden clubhouse. Hole 4 is a beauty: you tee onto an island surrounded by piranha-infested waters. Don’t go fishing for lost balls! When fully completed the clubhouse will also include a bar (it already has a fridge full of beer) and the grounds will feature a swimming pool and a tennis court. Meantime, see cofounders Mike Collis or Bill Grimes at the course city office for information on how to get swinging.
