The Club is located 105 miles to the east of Rio de Janeiro in the town of Búzios, known to be one of the famous touristic destinations, offering diversity of beaches, restaurants and major stores on the promenade. The very famous American golf course designers Pete and Perry Dye, known to be the founders of the very tough golf courses, created the Club in 1993. The 18-hole course with a length of 6,652 yards, par 72 is routed over a wonderful landscape with amazing surroundings, which is, however, located on a tight peninsula with windy climate, causing the appearance of challenging wind hazards on the track. Moreover, the course is in great shape: the fairways are laid out on the undulating terrain varying from verdure to hilliness and including several lakes. The front 9 are named to be the most interesting, plus they are quite different from the back 9, which makes the track even more attractive. The course also includes putting and chipping greens, as well as a driving range (20 spots).
