Located within the well-known Quinta do Lago estate, Pinheiros Altos course enjoys a solid reputation.
The golf course has an unusual layout with three nines of contrasting character, 'The Pines', 'The Corks' and 'The Olives'. The Pines, as its name suggests, meanders through typical Algarvian pine woods whereas many water hazards must be negotiated coming home. The rest is much flatter but the holes work their way through a series of lakes requiring accurate driving and precise iron play.
The golf course embraces part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, making this another course of beauty and challenge for players of all standards.
