Open Fairways are delighted to welcome Furnas Golf Course in Azores, Portugal
30 October 2017
A huge welcome to Furnas Golf Course, Sao Miguel Island in the Azores (Portugal). The Azores Golf Islands are now a participating venue with Open Fairways.
A spectacular golf course set in the midst of a powerful volcanic landscape with lush tropical vegetation. This is a truly incredible golf experience.
The first nine holes of the course were established by Mackenzie Ross in 1936 and represent the first golf course on the island. Bordered by a landscape of spectacular natural beauty that leaves you speechless. Expanded brilliantly by golf course architects Bob Cameron and Chris Powell in 1992, the course now boasts 18 holes of golf and Clubhouse, welcoming British style.
We are sure that MacKenzie Ross would be very pleased to see that the construction of the 9 new holes are in harmony with the spirit and the style of the original, it's actually very difficult to distinguish the first nine of the new ones.
The course is surrounded by majestic Japanese cedars and is quite delicate in nature, but it is undoubtedly a true test of skill and fineness.
The Azores Golf Islands are definitely somewhere to consider for your next golf trip overseas.
