Aroeira 1 Golf Course MapDesigned by Frank Pennink, the Aroeira course skilfully blends the needs of a championship golf course and the harmonious surroundings of natural landscape.

The course runs through a pinewood sprinkled with wild flowers and many kinds of birds; it is a genuine nature park. An English writer named this the "Wentworth of Lisbon", and went on to describe the similarities between Aroeira and the famous London club.

Set in a 345 hectare estate very close to Caparica which has long beach with 30 kilometres of white sand, Aroeira has become one of the most famous golf courses in the country, with the advan-tage of being just 20 minutes from Lisbon, on the south bank of river Tagus. On a clear day one can see the Portu-guese capital from the tee of hole number one.

The course, which is played for a typical Par 72 (36+36), provides a variety of game situations; this means players may use almost all their clubs. On the first round, hole number 8 stands out, with its Par 3 for 190 metres and a green with a remarkable inclination.

On the second round the highlight is hole number 11, a Par 4, which was redesigned by Robert Trent Jones Sr. From here the tee-off is a blind shot into a narrow fairway with trees on both sides. It is followed by a spectacular approach to a green closely protected by water and bunkers, which reminds one of hole number 11 at Augusta National, where the US Masters is played every year.
