The Brazil Rio de Janeiro 500 Years Open was the first of two golf tournaments that were held in 2000 to commemorate the discovery of Brazil by Pedro Álvares Cabral in 1500. They were both included on the schedule of the PGA European Tour, marking the tour's first visit to South America.

The tournament was held at Itanhangá Golf Club in Rio de Janeiro and won by England's Roger Chapman who triumphed in a sudden-death playoff over Ireland's Pádraig Harrington,[1] who would go on to win the second tournament in São Paulo the following week.[2]
