It has not been too difficult
to transform a location of such natural beauty into a pleasant nine hole
course. Built near the dunes of Consolacao beach, the course, with its
six lakes and big bunkers runs parallel to the beach for two and a half
There are plans to build
nine more holes, though the existing nine holes, however, have different
setting off tees, which means a second round, quite different from the
first, can already be played. It is truly worth a game overlooking the
Atlantic Ocean, Consolacao Fort, Peniche, Cape Carvoeiro and Berlengas.
The fact that the course has been built around a juniper grove adds to
its unusual beauty.
The course has clear "link"
characteristics, and is demanding of players, especially in short shots,
as the juniper wood has to be preserved and so balls may be lost.
