Golf course overview

The course first hole is a testing uphill, par-4, offering a number of 'risk and reward' opportunities.

Mastering the massive par-5 hole 13 with a descending fairway, which when the wind is behind the player, will demand consistent shot making all the way to the hole.

Rocky areas, meandering watercourses, good views to the distant mountains of Monchique, orange groves, all of these give the course its own character. In a modern twist of a traditional recipe, cacti and wild herbs replace the role of Sunningdale's heather, spartan Holm oaks and ancient olive trees take the place of lush English woodland, and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace Berkshire's sandy tracts in a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play.
