Pure tradition

A beautiful place with old trees in which it is sometimes vigorously up and down. A cart is highly recommended, even if there is a great shuttle service between the 16 and 17 up the mountain. Highway and racetrack have hardly bothered us. The place was in early April in a very good condition. In some places green and tee of the following lane were quite close to each other. No wonder in the narrow edge development. We enjoyed the day and at the end the great view from the clubhouse towards the sea.

Place with flair!

Old English atmosphere, wonderful vegetation, with some nice bites on Estoril. The highway does not really bother and you get used to the noise of the Motodrom.
The fact that you do not value visitors as much as you can see from the division of restaurants into guests and members as well as the minimalistically equipped Proshop. Worthwhile historical 90 years old place.

Beautiful and varied parkland golf course

I played this varied parkland golf course in January 2018. On the whole a beautiful place with lots of old trees, in places quite hilly, the place was well maintained and the greens are often elevated and undulating and very fast. Holes 9-11 run along the highway. Not only that it is very loud here, they do not fit in any way to the course design.
Conclusion: a place that is definitely worth playing and offers the challenge and fun.

Historic place with good twilight rate

Played September 2018, HCP14 This clubhouse, located almost in the village, breathes the charm of a bygone era. Whether it likes, that restaurant access is only possible with a long leg dress, everyone may decide for themselves ;-) The bar as an alternative golf club has typical prices with a lot of uninspired cuisine.
The course is a rather short parkland course, which leads to the game of white. As a result, some PAR3 offer a very sophisticated look of tea. Overall, the fairways are wide enough and even stray balls can be saved from the pine due to lack of further growth. Some deep fairway bunkers give the rather short tracks seasoning. Greens were very fast but took spin. Care condition 2+. Irrigation was certainly not waived. Twilight rate booked online via a portal of 44 euros for this place very cheap. Cart could be recommended because of hilly layout and the sometimes long ways for some.
We would play again but only use the bar for drinks.

Great parkland course

From care state actually only 4 stars: especially the yellow haircuts are sometimes quite uneven and played. Next time I would refuse White, the tea boxes are better in there and the place is not very long anyway. The greens, however, absolutely great, the fairways are very well maintained. Placed game is required to play a good score, now and then the wind intervenes abruptly into the game... that cost me at least 4 strokes on four lanes. Altogether an absolute recommendation in particular for the so-called twilight tariff for 41 € (over various portals bookable) ...! I was almost alone on the field and completed the lap in 3:15 hours.

Varied golf course

If necessary, pre-book golf car!
Overall, well-maintained golf course, the two-way crossing of the highway is not disturbing - especially since you are driven from hole 16 to 17.
The greens are fast - but have enough bite for pitch marks when properly played.
Extensive tree population - nevertheless, all fairways are big and wide enough.
Signposting easy to understand and sufficient distance markers. When it rains the bunkers are hard.
We played four golf courses in this region this week - Estoril is the best in the package.

Interesting - but frustrating

Very nice and interesting place, mostly elevated greens. The challenge was extremely difficult, because they were extremely fast and it was difficult to bring the ball to rest. The condition is not optimal, sometimes superficial cross-growing grass roots.
Negative: restaurant separate for members and guests

Traditional

The Estoril Palacio Golf Club is located in the hinterland west of Lisbon amid the dense development around Estoril, resulting in that despite the now well ingrown fairways often have visual contact with the surrounding buildings.
The course is not very long with PAR 69, but requires the diverse fairways precise game because the outlet is limited right and left.

The difficulty of the course was increased in November 2016 by the lightning-fast greens that surely lay on Tour level.
As experience interesting but playable for most amateur golfers hardly without frustration.

Outside the fairways had the place not overly neat, which is certainly due to the fact that here probably mainly playing members who put priority on the actual game.

The clubhouse dates back to the founding year and has the feel of a long-established golf clubs.
Guests and members use different restaurant areas. Members may use the upstairs terrace, while guests to make do with the basement must take. The offer of catering was not used by us to complete.

If you can live with one or other restrictions and can not be put off by the fast greens, you will find a traditional golf club, the worth playing quite.

Varied course

It was the first golf course, we played in Portugal namely on 06.11.2015 at 24 ° C and sunshine. The place is very nicely laid out with mature trees, very varied, as well as challenging tracks. Since it had rained most days in advance very much, the fairways were soggy and sometimes in a not very good condition. Very positive we noticed the service. On hole 16 someone who brought over the highway to the hole 17 with his buggy the players and their bags waiting.

Parkland

A beautifully landscaped area with many trees and bushes. Not very long, but tricky to play. Not necessarily something for long hitters. Staff is very courteous and helpful. It is the only place in Europe, I know where the Caddy culture is still alive; recommended. A cart is recommended for older golfers as the transition from track 8 by 9 and 17:16 is caused by the relatively long golf course sheared A16.
The carts are available but although aged in excellent Condition.
We were in February on the court, which is the dead of winter in Portugal. The fairways were a bit muddy in places due to the weather, which was funded by the very short cut. The greens were cut down to the ground despite the weather and do not bite. Furthermore, they were cut over his shoulder ebnso, which leads in the partially strongly undulated structure, that even with a gentle downhill put the balls meter wide roll onto the fairway. This will hopefully be in the growing season differently.
Overall, a very interesting and varied course with the jahreszeitlih related problems.

GC Estoril, Portugal

On 5.12.2012 Estoril played at a pleasant 17 degrees. The place is a bit scruffy, the highway passes through the space (over bridge to cross) is quite getting used to).
Still, 4 stars because of very beautiful landscape defined in the fairways, is created for each individual and unmistakable; to beautiful views of Lisbon, the Tagus and the Atlantic coast.

Golf do Estoril - one of the oldest golf clubs in Portugal

Lisbon in December 2011, the 27-hole course (par 69) was originally built in 1947 by Mackenzie Ross. For men (yellow) 5238m and women (red) of the course is 4569 meters long and very hilly. Upon arrival, overlooking the magnificent clubhouse, you feel transported by the time machine to 1947. The building is so authentic surroundings, the front doors have the patina itself. Without a doubt, the golfer is demanded in the beautifully ingrown Golf Course tactics, court knowledge as well as clever choice of the racket. Often both the front nine and the back nine let the driver used. Undulating greens make putts auslippen before.

To be allowed to play the course in December at 18 degrees is a real benefit.

The view is in all holes a "NEW" discover the nature of pine, eucalyptus and mimosa trees. Some par 3 holes have it in them eg. Hole 8 Par 3 with 197 m (yellow) (red) 179m represent a real challenge

Similarly, the hole 16, a par 3 (yellow) 161m (red) 125 m is applied so tricky that you must first played over a ravine with bushes and shrubs in depth. However, so long that non-local golfers usually end up in Gestrüb or the ball bounces off the rock and jump across. Who may bring home a good score, bay located just a caddy.

Golf do Estoril lives classical nobility and is legendary caddies, the earlier years for PGA player caddies were known. You are always willing to give up the secrets of the place known and good advice which you should use blow. After all, the Portuguese Open and 62 times International Amateur Championship was held here 29 times.

On the Golf do Estoril no buggies are allowed, so a good condition on the beautiful scenic place is appropriate. Some years ago he was converted because of the highway and the holes were even more difficult. Striking is the loving vegetable-based side around the clubhouse.

From the clubhouse you can look out on the putting green and a tasty meal can reloading lost pounds on the round.

18-hole green fee in high season varies between weekdays and weekends € 57 € 71

Blue Course - super affordable round of golf!

We have played on 5.9.11 the Blue Course (9 holes). First of all the negative points: around the green, but uneven fairways (various herbs ...) is the place "Southern European" - dusty, dried-grass, sand. The paths between the tracks are bumpy and poorly maintained. The greens, however - top class, but not very fast very well maintained.
The tracks are mostly quite challenging (hilly, slopes) but not too long - definitely the Blue Course is a "real" 9-hole course and short course no.
I distribute 4 stars because it probably comes nowhere cheaper in the area to play golf - from 13 clock you can play on weekdays for 10 € (in words TEN!) As often as you want. Ideal for training and the subsequent beer in the clubhouse is also very reasonably priced.
