Yes, from Monday - Friday (except public holidays).

The Itanhanga is one of the larger golf complexes in Brazil, with a full eighteen holes and an additional nine that are far less difficult. Designer Stanley Thompson from Canada laid out these courses in the 1930s in one of the loveliest parts of Rio, and they have undergone repeated renovation. The entry lane makes its way between the nine-hole course and the full course's 10th, and once you arrive at the clubhouse you will find it spacious and inviting, with a British-style pub, two restaurants to choose from, an excellent pool for swimming, and even a special space for the kids. Further attractions include polo and the nearby Tijuca Forest. There is not much relief to the courses, but the main one compensates with bunkers and water hazards, and features what may be the toughest hole on the continent, the par 4 18th, where more than one championship has been decided.
