You will find many of Europe’s top golf courses in the Algarve. The weather conditions and the terrain make it an ideal region of the world to design and develop golf courses and many professionals and amateurs choose to base themselves in the Algarve during winter.
The golf courses on the Algarve are of a very high standard and the Pestana Pinta golf course is no exception. With fierce competition for golfers’ loyalty in this part of the world, golf clubs must produce the best.
Pestana Gramacho Details
The 18-hole course was designed by Ronald Fream, a well known American architect and plays to 6,700 yards off the back tees. A par-71, Pestana Pinta golf course is a genuine test of golf and the rolling hills and lakes combine with the olive groves to make the course very picturesque.
However, you cannot spend much time marveling at the beauty of the course, even with the Monchique Hills in the background as this is a golf course that demands you best game to score low.
Good accuracy, from the tee through to the green is a must due to the tight fairways and well-placed hazards. For those who like having to think out of the box a little and try new shots, this is the golf course for you because shot-making plays a large part in every round at the Pestana Pinta golf course.
The 4th hole, which is a par-5 provides a good example of what to expect in this course. The tee shot is long and uphill which is tough but the fairway is bordered by out of bounds to the left and rough to the right. The remainder of the hole plays downhill but the fairway narrows considerably the closer it gets to the green, which has two bunkers protecting the putting surface.
Pestana Pinta golf course has played host to the European Seniors Tour Qualifying final and after one round on the course, it is easy to see why it is so highly regarded.
Pestana Pinta golf course is part of the Pestana Golf Resort and this is located near Carvoeiro in the western Algarve.
Coming from Faro Airport, the journey only takes 45 minutes, so within 90 minutes of touching down in the Algarve, you could be setting up on the first tee. If you are staying in or close to Albufeira you are well placed to enjoy a round of golf on Pestana Pinta golf course as the journey would take just 30 minutes.
