Estoril Golf Course is known as one of the oldest and most emblematic clubs in Portugal. A long list of famous golfers have played Estoril including Ballesteros, Montgomerie & Torrance.
Overlooking Estoril and the sea, this course is set amongst eucalyptus, mimosas and pine trees giving a uniquely colourful touch that demands excellent tactics, challenging accuracy rather than distance.
The visually stunning Par-3 4th hole is surrounded by pepper trees; and the Par-3 8th hole “The Tea Cup” is well known due to the always challenging flag position!
The history of Lisbon Sports Club began with the traditional craving for sports by British residents, who started some organised activities - cricket, football and tennis - in Lisbon, around 1880, where the Bull-Ring at Campo Pequeno is to be found today.
The Carregueira Course belonging to the Sports Club is not a long course but it demands knowledge of all the pitfalls that the brook conceals. That is why the positioning of strokes, and sometimes approach shots are of utmost importance.
The opening hole is a 170-metre par 3, with obstacles all around: the stream in front and to the side, two bunkers before the green and others, at the side and behind.
The signature hole is the 18th, a 442-metre par 4, influenced by the stream in six places and with a rather narrow green, surrounded by cypress trees alongside the brook.
Located in Cascais just 1km from Quinta da Marinha Hotel, close to the Guincho beach and surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Oitavos is one course not to be missed on the Costa Lisboa.
Oitavos gives an old Scottish links feel with nine out and nine back layout. The early holes are in a wooded area then the course opens up a little and its style becomes more that of a traditional links. The quality of the layout is immediately apparent.
The course hosted the PGA European Tour Portuguese Open in 2005 with Paul Broadhurst lifting the trophy.
Venue: European Challenge Tour - Estoril Challenge
The famous golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed the renowned Atlantic course at Penha Longa which is as much a physical challenge because of the landscape, as it is pleasing on the eye, for the same reason.
The land is also steeped in history, with a Palace, a church and the Fountain of Tears all situated on the estate formerly owned by the Count of Penha Longa. This is no ordinary track!
Situated in one of the most pleasant areas of the Portuguese coastline, between Cascais and Guincho, Quinta da Marinha is one of the leading courses in Portugal, hosting the European Tour’s Estoril Open in 2002.
The 13th hole is particularly memorable - a 390-metre par four, with the Atlantic providing the backdrop to the green.
