Play the lovely Pinheiros Altos Golf Resort in the Algarve who have just updated their profile.
12 December 2022
Pinheiros Altos is established as one of the most prestigious and successful premier golf and leisure resorts in Europe, and owns a 27-hole Championship golf course.
The Pinheiros Altos championship golf course, designed by Ronald Fream, offers a picturesque and challenging contrast of two nines. The first winds through undulating pine forest and the second meanders by a series of lakes, leading the ultimate test of nerves at the Par 3 Island Green of the 17th Hole. The new course gives Pinheiros Altos a total of 27 holes, the latest nine featuring gentle slopes and views of the hills to the North and the Ludo Valley to the South and East.
The golf course was designed by the respected American architect, Ronald Fream and consists of two nines of contrasting character.
The front nine covers a rolling landscape of tall pines (“Pinheiros Altos”) while the back nine is played on the gently moulded Gondra where lakes abound and dominate the strategy of the golfer. The 620 yard 13th is a holiday in itself, while the intimidating island green 17th has become Pinheiros Altos´ signature hole.
The firm, fast and testing greens are sown with Pentcross Bent and, combined with the Bermuda fairway grass, provide resilient and excellent surfaces on which to play golf and make Pinheiros Altos a “must play” course when visiting the Algarve.
