Atlantic Championship Course
The Atlantic Championship Course was inaugurated in 1992. This 18 hole, par 70 championship course of 6,290m is very well integrated with the landscape. It offers a challenge to all golfers, as well as breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, Estoril, Cascais and the Sintra Hills. With its bold drives, courageous approaches and artful greens, it is both an adrenalin rush and a soothing journey through one of Portugal's most inspiring landscapes. The opening holes and the final flourish share a wooded vale in the shadow of the rocky mountains, while others arc and plunge over scented hillsides.
