Penha Longa Atlantic
One of many fantastic courses in Portugal designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr. Penha Longa is a glorious 18 holes of Championship Golf sculptured amongst the verdant mountains of Sintra. The rolling hills offering an alluring landscape to any course designer.
Trent Jones has not disappointed with some wonderful holes, the relatively short Par 5 6th Hole is decorated by an ancient Aqueduct at the back of the green and guarded at the front of the green by a lake. The 7th is a high class Par 3 protected by a bunker and a green sloping towards a waiting lake.
As with the best courses the finishing holes are excellent notably the stunning 16th from the elevated tee the view is spectacular as the hole is all before you. If you find the fairway the second shot is very demanding as you will be hitting up to a small protected green. A par is some achievement.
"Penha Longa. A very nice place. Service very friendly. They made us tea 10 - as we were alone. Wonderful. Clubhouse: extremely friendly. "

"As to the courses, we liked Penha Longa better. It was in excellent condition, and we were looked after very well by the staff there, who made us feel very welcome – at times a bit noisy due to the nearby motor racing track. Quite challenging, especially because the wind was strong. Fabulous views. "
- Mr. S. Pender -
