Overlooking Estoril and the sea this 5200 meter long course is set amongst eucalyptus, mimosas and pine trees giving a uniquely colorful touch that demands excellent tactics, challenges in accuracy rather than distance. The visually stunning par 3 holes although they vary in length all pose particular challenges; the 4th hole The Peppers Hole surrounded by pepper trees; the 8th hole The Tea Cup – is well known due to the always challenging flag position.
