Leave A2 at Jtn 1, follow direction Caparica on the IC 20. After 6.4 km turn left at traffic lights just before entering built-up area of Costa da Caparica (pink block of flats on your left), direction Fonta da Telha. After 6.1 km bear right direction "Golf". After 3 km turn left direction "Golf". After o.6 km turn right to Golf, which is straight ahead.
Aroeira Golf (No.2 Course): Where Aroeira I retains some of its original natural forest-feel, the dark-trunked pines that remain on Aroeira II barely disguise that this is a high-density residential retreat for Lisbon executives.
The most interesting part of the course, from the par-5 11th to the par-4 16th, makes excellent use of one of the small lakes, which bring water into play on at least seven of the 18 holes. In addition to water, some fairly uncompromising rough may also account for one or two wayward tee-shots. Intriguingly, an unbroken line of three-storey terracotta-coloured apartments stretches for nearly 1.5 kms alongside the leftside of 2nd, 3rd and 4th holes.
Overall this is a challenging course built to PGA European Tour standards, but it is not just the course itself that will catch your eye - the many and varied architectural styles of the villas that line many fairways will also keep you visually entertained.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.
Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
