Algarve: Golf


Pine Cliffs Golf Course
Pine Cliffs, Albufeira

This is one of the country's most original golf courses, built in a pinewwod at the edge of spectacular cliffs, overlooking the beautiful beaches of the Algarve and the Atlantic beyond. The nine-hole course is not very long - only two hole run to more than 360 meters - yet, despite this, it offers a real challenge for the golfer, regardless handicap.
Architect Hawtree's main concern to keep the natural surroundings at it was before the course was built.
The perfetly-kept course open with two undermanding holes, but the challenge gets tougher from the third hole - a Par 4 for which the drive must go through a narrow gap between pine trees. After the fifth hole (the only Par on the course) one can enjoy the crown of the jewel: a Par 3 with championship tee built over a ravine that requires a 205 meter carrying shot right over the beach to land on a deep but narrow green.
For several years, the British racing star Nigel Mansell, was the president of the club.
