Golf Course Overviews

San Lorenzo Golf Course

San Lorenzo is a world-class course. Since opening in 1988 it has been consistently ranked alongside the best in the world.

Set within a nature reserve, the course has a reputation for being beautifully maintained and challenging holes. The fairways wind through the pine forest and lead to large undulating greens. Well placed bunkers and water hazards mean you will have to strategically plot your way round and carefully choose your points scoring holes. But the challenge is well worth it when you are able to stop and take in the stunning views over the coastline and surrounding area.

After your round is complete there is an excellent clubhouse with a large terrace overlooking the first and tenth fairways where you can relax and discuss the successes or otherwise of your 18 holes.

San Lorenzo has long been a Greencard Golf favourite and playing here is a bucket list experience that you are sure to enjoy and add to your golfing memories.

Vale Do Lobo Royal Course

The acclaimed Royal Course is among the top 100 best golf courses in Europe, and home to one of the most famous holes in Portuguese golf, a par 3 over three spectacular cliffs to reach the green which ahs become one of the most used golfing images in the world.

The trademarks of the Royal Golf Course are it’s rolling fairways, water hazards and numerous sand traps all of which are set amidst pine trees and beautiful lakes. Its features include the almost island green of the 9th and the previously mentioned famous cliff edge hugging 16th, which has become the veritable symbol of golf in the Algarve.

This course will present a great challenge, and a green finding tee shot on 16 has to be on your golfing bucket list.
