Marvao Golf Course - plan
Covering 137 hectares of the Sao Mamede Natural Park and strategically placed in the Marvao-Portalegre-Castelo de Vide triangle, the Ammaia Club de Golf of Marvao is a pioneer in the Alto Alentejo. The name comes from an ancient Roman town that was once there, and which historic remains can still be seen scattered about the course. The welcoming clubhouse was inspired by the design of a typical Alentejo house, perfectly blending with the local landscape.

The course, designed by the Architect Jorge Santana da Silva (also responsible for the Amarante and Quinta da Barca courses), has undulating greens, several bunkers and four lakes. Three of these lakes are in the early part of the course (14 holes in flat terrain), and one in the challenging final sequence of four holes set in elevated countryside.

Running to 6,170 metres, the emphasis of this course is on holes number 4, 12 and 17. Hole number 4, is a Par 4, requiring a precise drive because of water running along the right side of the fairway. Hole number 12, a Par 5, rises sharply to finish with a green made up of a double platform. Hole number 17, a Par 3, has a teeing-off point set on high ground, while its green is placed in a peninsula surrounded by water on three sides and exposed to the wind.
