3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1945

Estoril Golf: Situated in the heart of upmarket residential Estoril, this course conforms to type for city centre golf - dogs yap from nearby gardens (but that's only at the 1st hole), a motorway splits the course in two (but its only a minor distraction for two or three holes) and like the area, some of the hills can be slightly tough going.

But make no mistake, here at Estoril is a Mackenzie Ross masterpiece, which richly deserves to be played. Pleasantly wooded and quite tight in parts, there is often more space off the tee than you at first think. The bowl-like green at the long par-3 8th is just one feature that marks out a succession of truly memorable holes.

Unless you hit as long as Ernie Els, don't worry about this seemingly short par-69 course - there is more than enough challenge to satisfy any amateur golfer.
