Literally translated as tall pines, this combination of pine and cork trees in a parkland setting is a beautiful layout in the Quinta do Lago, Algarve golf area. Often overlooked for its sister course at San Lorenzo Golf Club, a round at Pinheiros Altos makes a worthy addition to your golf holiday in Portugal.

Pinheiros Altos Golf Resort in Quinta do Lago is one of the most prestigious and successful premier private golf and leisure resorts in Europe. Pinheiros Altos is located in the Ria Formosa National Park, Quinta do Lago, Algarve, Portugal.

The original 18 holes were designed by the respected American architect Ronald Fream and the additional 9 holes, created by the highly regarded Portuguese golf architect George Santana da Silva, opened in 2007.

The 27 hole Championship Pinheiros Altos Golf is presented in three contrasting nine hole formats.  Each nine holes is a PAR 36 and named:

  • The Pines (Pinheiros)
  • The Corks (Sobreiros)
  • The Olives (Oliveiras)

All nine holes have their starting and finishing points in close proximity to the beautiful Pinheiros Altos Clubhouse.

The firm, fast and testing greens, sown with Pencross Bent and combined with the Bermuda fairway grass, provide resilient and excellent surfaces on which to play golf and make Pinheiros Altos a must play course when visiting the Algarve.

Along with the beautiful and challenging golf courses, the Pinheiros Altos Golf Academy, opened by Lee Westwood in 2003, is a leader is Southern Europe and is equipped with state of the art computerised coaching systems.
