A shot in the ocean
With about 30 high-class courses, the Algarve is visited by golfers from all over the world. The many hours of sunshine, which allow you to play until late, and the fabulous climate, make the region a golfing destination throughout the year. In the Algarve, the quality of the fairways is a constant concern. The courses were designed by respected names, such as Henry Cotton, Rocky Roquemore or Arnold Palmer, and provide a good challenge. Accept and give wing to your swing on flat or rough courses, nearly always with the ocean as a backdrop.
Play golf at your own pace
There are those days for a calm round of golf on fairways forgiving of a little waywardness with the strokes. And with an enticing clubhouse terrace at the end. Let us think of gentle or flat courses, surrounded by beauty to aid a relaxed frame of mind and which are easily played but with a variety of golfing skills called on. That is the case with Quinta da Beloura, between Estoril and Sintra, which is very level and with a surrounding greenery made up of 40,000 trees. On the Costa Azul, to the south of Lisbon, Aroeira I where the dense vegetation on either side of broad fairways recalls Wentworth in England. This is a championship course that ensures various golfing situations to provide an edge to the surrounding natural calm.
Great golfing challenges
The first big challenge is to make sure your game benefits from the surrounding beauty and natural landscape. But there are plenty more to come. To make the game a little more exciting, our course features a few interesting difficulties to make sure you never forget your first experience of golf – Portuguese style. Down on the coast, you will have to cope with the whims of the sea breeze. Out in the West, they make a regular appearance on the Praia d’El Rey course with its greens almost out on the beach. And on the Belas court, between Sintra and Estoril, you come up with a frightening lake protecting the last green on the “Big Hole”. And watch out for number 13 on the Quinta da Marinha course in Cascais. This spectacular par 4 runs down towards the sea.
