Amazon Golf Course

The Amazon golf course is a 33-hole par 33 course and is located about 45 minutes from Iquitos and covers 24 acres (10 hectares). This particular course can be adapted to the golfer who is looking for emotions, since the water traps are full of piranhas, alligators (reptiles very similar to crocodiles) who like to sunbathe in the sand, and it is not uncommon to meet snakes on the street. The golf course was becoming attractive because of its unique Amazonian characteristics.

 
Amazon Golf Course

The idea of ​​building a golf course was conceived in January 2004 in The Yellow Rose of Texas. Mike Collis, the same founder of The Iquitos Times, said the Amazon Golf Course would become the 'most isolated golf course in the world.' Collis animated the project with optimism, leading to its design, which was done by Wally Lloyd. In its construction in 2004, the mountain was carefully removed so as not to alter the ecology.
 
It was officially opened in 2008. In its first era, beginner golf workshops were started, some found the field difficult.
 
On the way to the Amazon Golf Course, there is a restaurant that has the attraction of serving the Paiche fish, a prehistoric fish that can grow up to 10 feet (3 m) long and weighs almost half a ton (450 kg). It is in danger of extinction in nature but also remains on the menu.
