Vale do Lobo
In recent years there has been a considerable investment made in this course, including the addition of a Golf Academy and the redesign of several holes.
From the opening par 4, to the majestic par 4 eighteenth set in a natural amphitheatre, this course has already become famous for having some classic golf holes.
The “Postage Stamp” par 3 fifth of just 113m to the smallest of bunker-surrounded greens makes an accurate tee shot essential.
The par 5 ninth ranks among the toughest stroke-index 1 holes ever designed.
The picturesque, short par 3 eleventh – guarded on two sides by water, is one of the most inviting holes you could wish to play and is followed by a par 5 that leads up the “Valley of the Wells” to another elevated green.
Water comes into play on the sixteenth and seventeenth where bold, yet accurate, tee shots will reap dividends for the brave, although both holes also prove rewarding to those golfers with higher handicaps.
