This excellent Nick Price & Ronald Fream design is the championship course at Carvoeiro Golf Resort, Algarve. Your golf holiday in Portugal should definitely feature this great golf course in the central Algarve area.
The 8 time consecutive host of the European Seniors Tour Qualifying final, Vale de Pinta is rightly respected not just for its playability and challenging layout but for outstanding levels of beauty and enjoyment. Designed by the famous American golf course architect Ronald Fream and inaugurated in 1992 Vale de Pinta has earned its place as one of the best designed courses in Europe.
Imagine the fairways of Bermuda grass, strategically placed sand bunkers, and greens clad in Penn Cross Bent grass. Not to mention ornamental lakes in a rolling terrain dotted with carob, fig, almond and olive trees (including one olive tree over 1200 years old!).
The modern Pinta Clubhouse welcomes each golfer or non golfer with a warm, cosy and tranquil atmosphere with the following services:
- The golf store, with well-known international golf brands.
- Club and buggy rental.
- Changing facilities.
- Restaurant and Bar, with beautiful, idyllic views to the fairways.
- Full reception facilities.
- Buggy Bar.
The golf reception is open every day from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the winter, and to 9 p.m. in the summer.Western Algarve, Portugal Travel Guide
