Any information would be appreciated about playing in either Porto Alegre or Sao Paulo, Brazil.
I plan to be in Buenos Aires in October. Is there anyone on this forum from BA? I would like to play at least once. Any suggestions?
Well, I enjoy playing different courses. I am semi-retired and get to travel both for business and pleasure. Last May I finished my quest when I played Wildhorse Resort & Casino in Pendleton, OR. This was my state number 50. I have also played in 6 Canadian provinces. As for countries I now have 20 - Austria, Bahamas, Canada, Czech Republic, England, France, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Thailand, United Arab...
Being in my early 70's and living n Michigan here are my plans.   November - Week before Thanksgiving going with 3 others to Santee, SC for 4 to 6 days of golf.   December - Sit home look at the snow and dream   January - Trip to L.V. (pronounced "Lost Wages") with side trips to Palm Springs, CA and St. George, UT. Golf all three locations.   February - Rented condo in Gulf Shores, AL area.

I keep a record of courses played and my scores. I have played 852 course in all 50 states. I have played in 6 Canadian providences and in 21 Countries. These includes course in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa.   I get a logo ball from each courses played (if they have them). I display them in 100-ball racks in my den. At present I have 797 balls. Lately I also have been getting a poker chip ball marker if available.

My last 20 plays consisted of 5 in Michigan on my home course and 5 on other Michigan courses, the came winter. Played 6 in South Carolina on a Myrtle Beach trip with friends in November. Then 1 in Puerto Rico in December, followed by one in Arizona, 1 in Nevada and 2 in Utah in January. Since then have been looking out at snow and wondering if I will ever be able to play again in Michigan. I would say in playing season 5 out 20 are on my home course.
I have only played one Top 100 course: Quarry at La Quinta - wonderful   Top 100 Public Courses: Wolf Creek - (in 40mph wind - hit my only 300 yard drive) Tullymore - pretty course Bay Harbor - view of water more impressive than course Grand Traverse - The Bear - Tough but fair Boyne Highland - Heather course - beautiful and fun Ko'Olau - a Lawrence Welk reply "Wonderful, Wonderful"
With 12 months to go I would not be interested in playing with people I do not know. My stepson and the two grandsons along with a few friends I normally golf with would be perfect for me.   As to where I would play. Finish my goal of 50 states. I now have 48 and need WA, OR, ID and MT. I have played in 21 countries on 4 continents. Play a few more countries and maybe Augusta National & St. Andrews and I would pass on with no golf regrets.
I have played a few of the best Public Courses:   Wolf Creek Tullymore Bay Harbor Grand Traverse - The Bear Boyne Highland - The Heather Ko'Olau
