Dom Pedro Golf
Vilamoura (Almancil), Algarve, Portugal
Dom Pedro Golf in Vilamoura is Europe’s largest private tourist project, and its 5 golf courses offer value, variety and challenge for all levels of golfer. The Old Course, Pinhal, Millennium Laguna and Victoria courses all have their own character. Located 20 minutes from Faro airport.
18 hole championship course which opened in 2004 which was designed by Arnold Palmer. Occupying a total area of 90 hectares and with a total distance of 6,560 metres. Every care has been taken to preserve the existing wetland, the carob, olive and almond trees, as well as several lakes which provide reservoirs for the course. With 5/6 tees per hole, wide and undulating fairways, extensive water hazards and well positioned bunkers, Victoria Course rewards the ambitious shot-maker. All 18 greens are totally different shapes and sizes. Playing this course will be a unique and unforgettable experience to any player. This is destined to become one of the best and most sophistocated courses in Europe.
• Host to Portugal Masters (European PGA Tour/DP World Tour), 2007-present
• Host to World Golf Championships: Algarve World Cup, November 2005 (winner Wales)
Dom Pedro Old Course was inaugurated in 1969. It is laid over and around gentle sloping hills with tree lined fairways, and poses quite a stern test. Host to the Portuguese Open (1970, 1979,) a golfer playing well will find it delightful.
The Millennium Course opened in 2000, hence its name . Designed by Martin Hawtree, the Millennium course is a most attractive and interesting layout. The setting of this course within the surrounding countryside is truly astounding, and encompasses wooded areas and lakes.
The par 72 Pinhal Course opened in 1976. The front nine winds through umbrella pines while the back nine is more open with sea views. Not quite as severe as Dom Pedro Old Course, the average golfer will find this course more forgiving.
Laguna Course is set amongst dunes and water hazards which come into play on more than half the holes, so there is much trouble off the tee for a miss-hit shot. Accuracy is needed here as this is a real test of golfing skill.
