Aroeira Golf Resort is home to two excellent golf courses, with the Aroeira 1 course designed by Frank Pennick and opening first in 1972. When players visited the course following the opening, it received many great reviews and the British media immediately took to the course, calling it the ‘Wentworth of Lisbon’.
The course has played host to many tournaments, including the Portuguese Open and remains popular among golfers today.
Location: Lisbon coast
Aroeira I Golf Course Details
Playing at just over 6,500 yards, Aroeira 1 is a short golf course considering it has hosted some big events but that does not deter from that is a tremendous round of golf.
The fairways are narrow throughout and lined by pine trees but despite the presence of nature surrounding the course, you never feel enclosed. There is a feel of openness despite the test of accuracy off the tee.
You will struggle to find a weak hole on the front nine and many visitors enjoy playing the par-3, 8th hole which features out of bounds down the right side. There is no water in play on this hole, so you feel safe to the left but the downhill tee shot remains daunting.
Water does come into play at times, especially on the tee shots of the 2nd and 4th holes on the front nine and on 10, 11, 14 and 15 of the back nine holes. A par-3 steals the show on the back nine as well as the front and to look at the length of the 14th, you will feel there is no reason why you cannot at least make a par.
However, with a long bunker guarding the front of the green and a small lake, you can easily find yourself taking 4 or more shots if you allow yourself to be distracted by the beauty of the hole.
The Resort is a fantastic golf course and you will enjoy playing the course whatever your level of ability. Inspired? Aroeira golf resort can be included as part of a Lisbon golf break. Contact us today for no obligation golf package quote.
The Resort is situated just 20 kilometres to the south of the Portuguese capital of Lisbon. This makes the course very each to reach, wherever you are based in the world as Lisbon accepts flights from around the globe.
By crossing the bridge from Lisbon to the Setubal peninsula, it’s a straight drive along the A2 before taking a right turn at Cruz de Pau and heading towards the coast at Fonte Da Telma. There is a beach along the coast and the golf course is close enough to enjoy all the facilities along the Atlantic Ocean.
