Start your trip off in Portugal with a 3 night stay in the Cascais area.
Play Penha Longa Atlantic Course
Designed by international golf architect Robert Trent Jones, the course contains all the features of a designer whose work has hosted two World Cups. The holes near the clubhouse follow the valley area, winding past mature pines and granite rocks. Other holes follow higher ground in the foothills below Sintra, with superb views down to the resort town of Cascais and the Atlantic Ocean. Undulating and testing with a number of doglegs, the course has been carefully integrated into the natural surroundings to maintain a harmony with nature.
Play Oitavos Dunes Course
A spectacular cliff-top design from Arthur Hills and a regular host to The Portuguese Open, Oitavos is not only ranked among Portugal’s top courses, but is also one of the best in Europe. Stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean to one side and the Sintra Mountains to the other, this handsome layout with its links-like characteristics, is tough and unforgiving to the extreme. Even accomplished players will need their A-game and high handicappers will be well advised to play from the forward tees. A stern examination of golf to be savored and enjoyed by the true connoisseurs of the game.
Conclude the Portgual part of your journey with 3 nights in the The Algarve.
Play Vale do Lobo Royal Course
The Royal take players through umbrella pine and fig tree-lined fairways to the Atlantic – playing dramatically along the cliff’s edge. The short but spectacular 16th hole is unique and unlike anything else you will encounter on the Algarve – teeing off from the cliff-top, the tee shot must carry across not one but two adjacent, gaping gorges with the beach 200 feet below, it’s one for the memory book.
Play San Lorenzo Course
San Lorenzo has long established a reputation for quality and challenge and has been ranked among Europe’s top 50 courses by Golf World magazine. This extremely attractive track runs through a wide variety of scenic locations, alternating between beachside, lakeside and woodland . The early holes follow an undulating path over through a small pine forest before circumventing a large lake, then on to the Ria Formosa and the beachfront. San Lorenzo presents practically every difficulty in the book, from trees, shrewd bunkering, both fairway and greenside, to water hazards galore. There’s a serene tranquility to this course and the beauty of the surroundings seems to bring out the very best in every player. San Lorenzo is kept in excellent condition and presents a fair though very challenging test of golf.
Now you’re off to Spain for the final portion of your adventure and a 4 night stay in the Costa del Sol.
Play Valderrama Course
Home to the European Tour’s season closing event, The Volvo Masters, for more than 20 years, legendary Valderrama has gone on to host two World Golf Championships and in 1997, received the ultimate honor of being the very first course located outside of Britain to host the European leg of The Ryder Cup. And the show is far from over. This is the undisputed crown jewel of Spanish golf and for many, the best in Europe – Valderrama enjoys a golfing reputation that is deservedly, second to none. Perhaps the most exclusive private golf club in all of Spain, the members have graciously acknowledged a responsibility to share their golfing treasure with other golfers and accept a very limited number of visitors with 8 times a day starting at 15 minute intervals. Immaculately maintained and packed to the gills with a never ending array of serious challenges, this is as tough a test of golfing skills as can be found and one that delivers a sense of excitement like no other. Don’t miss it!
Play Finca Cortesin Course
Cabell Robinson is a trans-planted American architect who opened his own design company on the Costa del Sol after being responsible for all of Robert Trent Jones Jr’s European projects for a number of years. Robinson is today probably the most respected golf architect in Spain and France, with more quality designs to his name than any other and Finca Cortesin, ranked among Spain’s top 5, is undoubtedly his very best and an experience not to be missed by any visiting golfer. Selected by the European Tour as the venue for the Volvo World Match Play Championship just a year after the course was inaugurated in 2009, then chosen for the honor again in 2011 and 2012, Finca Cortesin has become a firm favorite with the world’s top tour players as well as discriminating amateurs from around the globe. The 5 star luxury hotel located in site (also ranked as one of Spain’s best) is just another reason among the many, to include Finca Cortesin on your trip.
Play La Cala Campo America
The America Course while adding some stunning Mediterranean views to the mountain landscape, also gives players the opportunity to spread their shoulders and try some big hitting. This is an easier driving course than the other two, with fewer bunkers to worry those who may be less than totally accurate, but there are still some healthy carries required to get over the steeply sloping, brush covered rough. There are also a couple of unexpected water hazards that pop-up – just to keep things interesting.
