Course

You will be taken aback by some of the holes on Pestana Silves golf course and there are surprises around every corner. This is not the easiest golf course you will play in Portugal and those with a low handicap will find it a great challenge while those with a high handicap will enjoy the test of finishing under par.

The first hole sets the tone for the round and you have water on both sides of the fairway which come into play from the tee for long ball strikers. Getting the ball on the fairway off the tee is very important as the rough can be tough to escape. The course can give the feeling of being open thanks to some wide fairways and this tempts you to get out the driver but leave the fairway and trouble awaits.

Holes 5 and 13 are two which live long in the memory and the same lake comes into play on both. On the 5th hole, the water is to the left on the approach to the green whereas on the 13th hole, the water forms a dogleg to the left and can prove tricky to avoid and leave a good angle to the green.

Pestana Silves is well looked after and you are guaranteed good playing conditions all year round, making it a great choice as part of a Portugal golf holiday.

A few words from our customers..
"1 - 1st Class Holiday"

As with previous years our week's golfing holiday in Spain went without a hitch. Accommodation at Mar Menor Residents was clean well equipped and closed to the hotel facilities. Transport, including from and to Alicante Airport, was on time and comfortable. Thanks again to Maria and Jeff for their efforts

A great personal service. With golf breaks its all about the detail and these guys know about detail. I have been booking golfing breaks for 20+ years. I am about to book with them 3rd time.

The service from 360 Golf was excellent from first contact. From going through our various options all the way through to our trip to Vilamoura. Geoff who helped us with the options and Maria who made all the arrangements were great throughout, providing us with all the information and responding quickly to all our questions.
