The outstanding course is situated in the middle of a nature reserve between Sintra and Cascais. The first and last three holes are situated in a valley, lined by pine trees and granite rocks. The holes 6 to 13 spread over a hill and over a wide view on the environment. Penha Longa is concordantly clled one of the Portugal's best course by profi-golfers.
Has this place the last years. For the time being, he played for the last time after rainfall in Nov. 19. The course is closed, the greens must be completely refurbished, they are so heavily attacked by the fungus that a clean putting is impossible. Fairways are fat and loamy, here the next years solid sand is processed to meet the problem. 2 stars only for the beautiful landscape in which the place was built. Tip: avoid!
We (HCP 6 and 25) have already played many places in Europe - this place is definitely in our top 3. Great service and friendliness. Great layout with amazingly beautiful trees. Each track different and very varied. Fast and undulating greens. In particular, the last 4 lanes are hard to beat in terms of beauty - the view from the tee of the 18 direction clubhouse is not better. We will be back - determined.
A nice, but sometimes also very hilly place. Here is worth a cart, but with 65 € already outrageously expensive.
Long hitters are clearly in the advantage here. I played the course at the end of January 2018 and was lucky, there was very little going on at that time and the notorious racetrack in the immediate vicinity was not in operation. The place is fun to play, but next time only with E-Trolley or Cart.
