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.
Must book in advance. Maximum handicap: men 28; women 36.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2019].
Soft spikes only. Players generally walk this course. Golf carts available for hire.
