South American Odyssey Golf Cruise with Azamara

South American Odyssey Golf Cruise with Azamara

£4539 per person

10 Nights | 4 Rounds |  February 25 – March 7 2023

Golf Travel Cruise presents this exceptional 10-night, 4-round golf and sightseeing voyage to South America.

This cruise with less than 700 guests on board the outstanding Azamara Pursuit, visits Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil.

We begin in mesmerizing Buenos Aires and sail north, visiting beautiful Montevideo and Punta del Este, the bustling San Paulo, then the more relaxing Ilhabela and Paraty all before finally reaching iconic Rio de Janeiro.

The golf is delightful, including Montevideo’s Alastair Mackenzie designed Club de Golf del Uruguay, and the Olympic Golf Course in Rio, the site of golf’s 2016 return to the Olympic Games.

Just a short sail from Buenos Aires and we are in Uruguay, visiting Montevideo with its European charm and elegance, and fashionable Punta del Este with an eclectic, artsy vibe.

After two relaxing days at sea, we dive into the 24-hour excitement of São Paulo, the largest metropolis in the Western Hemisphere well known for its cosmopolitan energy.

We dial the pace back for the following two days with leisurely visits to the charming Ilhabela and Paraty. Finally we arrive in Rio de Janeiro where we have a full 24-hours to enjoy this most dynamic of cities, and a chance to visit one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the 125-foot tall Christ the Redeemer, sitting high atop Corcovado Mountain.

Our golf on the cruise is diverse and challenging.

Club de Golf del Uruguay is a creation of the illustrious Dr Alister MacKenzie.

Cantegril in Uruguay is a tree-lined layout measuring 6,411 yards from the tips that flourished after architect Emilio Serra’s redesigns in 1996 and 2000.

Sao Paulo is rated #4 in Brazil and was designed by legendary Canadian architect Stanley Thomson assisted by a very young Robert Trent Jones.

Renowned architect Gil Hanse designed the Olympic Golf Course in Rio for the 2016 Games and the layout delivered a thrilling duel as Justin Rose outlasted Henrik Stenson to claim the gold medal.

Azamara Pursuitis a mid-sized luxury vessel nimble enough to access smaller ports yet large enough to provide every amenity you expect from fine dining and live entertainment to a full-service spa. Forty-six suites are available with English butler style service which is routinely booked early.
