Dom Pedro Golf - Pinhal

Fantastic challenging course with well positioned bunkers and some tricky holes.


This was the second golf course built in Vilamoura and inaugurated in 1976, having originally been designed by Frank Pennink, the architect of the nearby Vilamoura Old Course. Several refinements were incorporated over the years, the most significant one by Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1985. It is typified by rolling parkland terrain covered with numerous umbrellas and Atlantic pines that line many of the fairways and a few even stand out on fairways or near greens. Ponds and a stream come into play on five holes but are not serious threats to above-average golfers.

This course is laid through the pine tree forest of the area and is set back from the tourist beach area. The outward nine holes wander through the holiday villas that line the fairways. The well-positioned bunkers make the course very enjoyable to the players, testing their choice of clubs and their accuracy. The Par-4 on the fourth hole is difficult to achieve with water waiting for the erring shot. The Par-3 on the eighth of 149 metres is tricky than it first appears. The back nine-holes have a more open feel but the slightly altered fifteenth will cause a problem to meet the par-4 it requires.

The Pinhal Clubhouse restaurant at the golf course can cater for up to 100 diners. The entrance to the restaurant is via a sweeping staircase and the restaurant has been recently refurbished to provide a modern and relaxed ambience. From the magnificent terrace overlooking part of the course and the driving range to the relaxing sofas inside, where ever you choose to relax after your game, you´ll feel pampered.
