The Iguassu Falls Golf Club has a quite varied course, since it has short, long, straight holes and doglegs, both uphill and downhill. In general, the fairways are quite wide, but there are several bunkers strategically placed to make the golfer think twice before giving the kick in several holes.

Another feature are the small greens, which, at the same time, increase the need for precision in approaching strokes, avoiding the infamous “three putters”, something hated by most golfers.

The most difficult hole is the 12th, a par 4 of 495 yards off the Pro tee and 470 yards off the male tee, with the lake on the left side of the fairway. For those who like a challenge, the fourth hole – a par 5 of 570 yards from the black tee and 536 off the blue – will be enjoyable. The opening shot is easy because the fairway is quite wide, but the difficulty arises when arriving at the green, which is almost an island, surrounded by a lake.

Strategically located among the most important sites for tourism in the city, the hotel and the course are just 7 km far from the National Park of Iguassu where the falls are situated.
