A Paradise in Shades of Green
Occupying a privileged location in Portugal, Vilamoura is regarded as a unique European golfing venue. With five 18-hole courses, each of outstanding design and with different levels of difficulty, as well as an elite Golf Academy, Vilamoura tests the skill of professional players to the utmost and provides an exciting challenge for golfing enthusiasts. The Oceânico Old Course is one of the most well-known and acclaimed courses in Europe, its exacting fairways demanding precision owing to the forests of umbrella pine which surround them. The Oceânico Pinhal Golf Course, flanked by a magnificent pine forest, has small greens that require the highest degree of accuracy. The Oceânico Laguna Golf Course is an open course, embellished by waterfalls and the Oceânico Millenium Golf Course, one of the most beautiful courses built in Portugal, combine to form an 18-hole course.
The Victoria Clube de Golfe, with its lakes and waterfalls that make it a genuine hymn to nature, and where major golfing competitions take place, such as the Algarve World Cup or the Portugal Masters, completes the list of golfing options in Vilamoura. This investment in quality has been rewarded with the chance to hold many tournaments there each year. The Taça do Presidente (President’s Cup), the Grande Troféu de Vilamoura (Vilamoura Grand Trophy) and the Expresso/BPI Golf Cup are the examples most widely praised by amateur players and leading professionals alike.
