Aroeira Golf Course - plan
Designed by Frank Pennick, the Aroeira course skilfully blends the needs of a championship golf course and the harmonious surroundings of natural landscape.

The course runs through a pine wood sprinkled with wild flowers, a genuine nature park where many kinds of birds live.

The English press named this the "Wentworth of Lisbon", and went on to describe the similarities between Aroeira and the famous London club.

Set in a 345 hectare estate very close to Caparica which has a long beach with 30 kilometres of white sand, Aroeira has become one of the most famous golf courses in the country, with the advantage of being just twenty minutes away from Lisbon, on the south bank of the river Tejo (one of the famous Portuguese long sentences!). On a clear day the Portuguese capital can easily be seen from the tee of hole number 1.

The course, which is played for a typical Par 72 (36 + 36), provides a variety of game situations; this means players may use almost all their clubs. On the first round, hole number 8 stands out, with its Par 3 for 190 metres and a green with a remarkable inclination.

On the second round the highlight is hole number 11, a par 4, redesigned by Robert Trent Jones. From here the tee-off is a blind shot into a narrow fairway with trees on both sides. It is followed by a spectacular approach to a green closely protected by water and bunkers, which reminds one of hole number 11 at Augusta National, where the U.S. Masters is played every year.
