The Algarve is known by its mild climate year round which makes it the perfect destination for golf in Europe.

The country has invested in very well treated golf courses, some of them rated among the best in the world.

Pinheiros Altos Golf Club

The original 18-hole course of Pinheiros Altos, designed by Californian architect Ronald Fream, was well-known for its contrasting nines. While the first 9-hole are over rolling sandy undergrowth with gentle pine trees, the shorter second 9-hole runs through hills dotted with lakes that present the main obstacle for the golfers on this course. Jorge Santana da Silva, a disciple of famed architect Robert Trent Jones, was selected to design the new holes. The latest are inserted in amongst the original opening nine, with 4 (holes 4 to 7) in the Pinheiros (Pines) 9-hole course, and the remaining new five5 (holes 2 to 6) in a loop called Sobreiros (cork-oaks). All three loops start and end conveniently near the clubhouse area.
