One of the country's most original golf courses built in a pinewood at the edge of spectacular cliffs, overlooking the beautiful beaches of the Algarve and the Atlantic beyond. This nine-hole course is not very long - only two holes run to more than 360 meters - yet, despite this, it offers a real challenge regardless of handicap. Architect Hawtree's main concern was to keep the natural surroundings as it was before the course was built. The perfectly kept course opens with two undemanding holes, but the challenge gets tougher from the third hole - a Par 4 for which the drive must go through a narrow gap between pine trees.
After the fifth hole one can enjoy the crown of the jewel: the Devil's Parlour, a Par 3 with a championship tee built over a ravine that requires a 205 meter carrying shot right over the beach to land on a deep but narrow green.
The Golf Academy includes a state-of-the-art indoor teaching bay with swing analysis cameras and software, as well as group room facilities for video analysis, a lounge area and shaded driving bays. Further the academy features a driving range designed as 9-hole course with target greens, 2 putting greens, a separate chipping and bunker practice areas.
