Pestana Pinta golf course, Carvoeiro, Algarve, Portugal
Designed by the North-American Ronald Fream, currently one of the most respected architects and whose style involves the preservation of nature in his projects, Vale da Pinta is the twin of Quinta do Gramacho, but with a full 18 hole course.

The course runs through an old olive grove, where some of the trees are more than 700 years old. True to U.S. golfing concepts, Fream has created wide, deep greens protected by a total of 59 similarly sized bunkers.

The challenges posed by the course are adaptable to differing levels of skill. This is achieved by the presence of five sets of tees for each of its holes.

Those players with handicaps ranging from scratch to 12 can play off the black marks placed further back. White marks are for those handicapped between 13 and 20. For ladies there are red marks (from scratch to 28 handicap) and blue marks for lady beginners.

As of September 1996 the David Leadbetter Golf Academy, which is Europe’s fifth largest, established a presence at this development.
