It's one of the oldest and most emblematic clubs in Portugal. It's a challenging golf course in terms of accuracy rather than distance, demanding excellent tactics.
Estoril Golf Course is 25 minutes away from Lisbon and just 3 from restaurants, hotels, casino and Estoril beach.
The Estoril Championship Course started in 1929 and redesigned in 1936 by Mackenzie Ross. It is known as one of the oldest and most emblematic clubs in Portugal and where two of the Portuguese most important tournaments have been held frequently: the Portuguese Open 20 years and the Portuguese International Championship Amateur 63 years.
A long list of famous golfers have played Estoril including Ballesteros, Montgomerie, Sam Torrance, Canizares, Gene Sarazen, Peter Allis and Bernard Gallacher.
Since the opening of the Estoril Golf Course in 1936, a number of alterations and improvements have been made to its original layout.
Overlooking Estoril and the sea, the 5262 meter long course is set amongst eucalyptus, pine and mimosa trees, giving it a uniquely colourful touch.
The architect, Mackenzie Ross, and the successive green keepers have made excellent use of these various trees which, together with the uneven terrain, make the Estoril Golf Course challenging in terms of accuracy rather than distance. The Estoril Golf Course demands excellent tactics.
