This challenging 18 holes lies with the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. It is set amongst pine woods and reforested dunes in an area of stunning natural beauty.
Ocean views follow you around the course, which are framed by fantastic scennery from the Sintra mountains to Cabo da Roca, the most most western point in Europe.
It is one of two courses design by Arther Hills outside of the USA and is an old fashioned "out and back" 18 holes. The initial 4 holes are protected by the pine woods from the elements but it is when the course ventures out to the open spaces and the dunes, that mother nature's influence on your round will grow.
The course has some great Par 3's. The 14th is perhaps the courses signature hole and can play much longer than 153 meter and the 15th, also a par 3, is not to be underestimated. The 18th hole will ensure you remember this fantastic course for what it is, a fair but very stiff challenge.
