Golf in Brazil is the subject of a site run by the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism. A site that includes a version in English: Golf – Brazilian Tourism Portal.
The site is beautifully designed, and it contains quite a lot of detailed information on the main golf courses in Brazil:
– in the state of Bahía: Comandatuba Ocean Course and Costa do Sauípe Golf Links
– in the state of Paraná: Aguativa Golf Resort and Bourbon Iguassu Golf Club Resort
– in the state of Rio de Janeiro: Búzios Golf Club Resort and Hotel do Frade Golf Resort
– in the state of Santa Catarina: Plaza Itapema Resort Spa
– in the state of São Paulo: Blue Tree Park Paradise Golf Lake Resort
The initiative is part of the declared policy of the Brazilian Authorities to promote tourism in Brazil abroad almost exclusively among the upper-class markets. Foreign currency, rather than number of visitors, is the force behind the promotion of Brazil as a tourist destination. The website Nautical Tourism in Brazil is also part of that initiative.
