Ranked in the top 30 Courses in Continental Europe, The Penha Longa Golf Club designed by the famed Robert Trent Jones Jnr, is escapist golf at its best.

With its bold drives, courageous approaches and artful greens, it is both an adrenaline rush and a soothing journey through one of Portugal’s most inspiring landscapes.

The opening holes and the final flourish share a wooded vale in the shadow of the rocky mountains, while others arc and plunge over scented hillsides. Exciting at every turn, this championship test and host to the Portuguese Open, is a master of variety and thrills.

Plus with the only Ritz-Carlton hotel in Portugal – the 5 star Penha Longa Resort – onsite, the Penha Longa experience is a fabulous option for a truly luxurious golf break in the Lisbon area.

The golf offering at Penha Longa was re-worked recently and the new courses are named as follows:

  • Atlantic Championship 18 hls (old Atlantic 1-18
  • Atlantic South 18 hls (1-9 Monastery + 9-18 Old Atlantic)
  • Atlantic North 18 hls (1-9 Monastery + 1-9 Old Atlantic)
  • Atlantic South & North 9 hls = ‘New’ Atlantic 19-27 (1-9 Monastery)

There is a shuttle service available that will either bring you to tee 10 if you play the Atlantic South course or will pick you up at green 9 if you are playing the Atlantic North course.

The Atlantic Championship Course is an 18-hole, par 72, championship course of 6,290 meters, offering a challenging course with breathtaking views over the ocean with Estoril and Cascais to the South and the Sintra hills to the North. Penha Longa’s Atlantic golf course has played host to numerous competitions including the Portuguese Open.

The Atlantic South/North 9 hole course is a par 35 course of 2,588 meters. This course spreads around the historical heart of the resort and is the perfect complement to the main 18 hole loop, ideal for guests who arrive in the late afternoon but who would still like to play a round of golf.

Delightful setting

1st November 2018

Excellent undulating course layout, good greens, fairways need some investment-inconsistent and lacking growth.

Poor-quality pull trolleys. 

Delightful setting.
