Quinta do Peru Golf Course: With the Arrabida mountains as its backdrop, and most holes skirted by woodland or orchards, this Rocky Roquemore design lays down a throughly enjoyable golfing test. The opening par-5 (stroke-index 1) gives you a flavour of the often generous rolling fairways, well-placed bunkering, excellent greens and overall parkland character of the layout.
Excellent use is made of the undulating terrain, and it's generally clear to see what's needed from the tee. The par-3 8th and 16th holes, and par-4 12th and 17th are where water threatens. Elsewhere, good quality bunkering provides the defence.
With pleasant views over surrounding and distant hills, and relatively limited housing around the course, the only other ingredient you'll want (and probably get) is plenty of Portuguese sunshine to accompany your round.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2019].

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.
