Golfers in the northeastern Bahia district of Brazil are well served by four quality courses that have opened along the Atlantic coastline in recent times: Costa do Sauípe and Praia do Forte to the north of Salvador, Ilha de Comandatuba and Terravista to the south of the state capital.

Designed by American architect Dan Blankenship, a former associate of Pete and Perry Dye, the Terravista golf course opened in 2004. Its fairways cover 175 acres of a resort complex that overlooks the Atlantic, near the small town of Trancoso on Brazil’s Discovery Coast (so called because it’s here that the first Portuguese settlers landed 500 years ago).

The front nine holes are routed through an Atlantic rainforest environment while the back nine holes are played closer to the coast, with four holes laid out along the edge of the cliffs. The signature hole is found here at hole 14, a much-photographed par three where the green is perched 150 feet above the water’s edge.

Architect, Dan Blankenship commented as follows: "Terravista Golf Course has proven to be the most enjoyable project of my career. Working in an area with incredible ocean views from seaside cliffs, native Brazilian rain forest, contours almost ideal for a golf course, and knowing that Brazil was discovered at this exact location 500 years ago, was a wonderful experience.

My construction team and I felt honored to be part of this amazing project and also felt a huge responsibility to deliver not just a golf course but a championship course that will stand the test of time in the ever growing game of golf.

My team and I hope that future rounds of golf at Terravista are as enjoyable as our time creating the golf course that has surpassed all of my dreams."
