What is Aroeira?
Herdade da Aroeira is located in a preserved area, 25km from the centre of Lisbon and just 600 meter from the beach. It is the largest housing and golf complex in the Greater Lisbon area.
The estate covers 350 hectares, has thousands of pines and several lakes to go with a temperate microclimate. There are two 18-hole championship golf courses, a golf school, a friendly clubhouse with snack-bar, bar and golf shop, as well as apartments and villas, tropical swimming pool, four tennis courts, playground, shopping mall and a hotel is planned.
The estate is ring fenced, has gatehouses and a round-the-clock security service.
These features make Herdade da Aroeira the ideal place to live or spend a deserved holiday playing golf, relaxing and getting in touch with nature while remaining close to a capital city teeming with life.
This 18-hole course was designed by architect Frank Pennink and opened in 1973. Specialists say it is one of the best in Europe and it hosted the Portuguese Open in 1996 and 1997 and a number of Ladies Opens.
Aroeira’s second 18-hole golf course, Aroeira II was opened in April 2000. Its architect, Donald Steel, took care to comply with European Tour recommendations and designed a course with future Portuguese Opens in mind. Its 18 long greens wind round 5 lakes and the various tees for each hole mean it can be played by players of all levels. For a number of years it has hosted the Qualifying School of Ladies European Tour and several Portuguese Ladies Opens.
