Parque da Floresta - Golf & Leisure Resort
Situated in the westernmost part of the Algarve, at the south-western tip of Europe, this varied course spreads over the slopes of the hills overlooking the ocean.

The Parque da Floresta golf course was designed by the Spanish architect Pepe Gancedo, whose general philosophy is to interfere with nature as little as possible. The fairways therefore accompany the natural contours of the terrain, spreading along the valleys and gorges, with their vineyards and eucalyptus groves, bordered by olive-trees, palms and pines.

The first hole is a 312-metre par 4, bending gracefully towards the sunset and presenting a real challenge for those seeking to reach the green in just two strokes. The 18th hole ends in an amphitheatre set beneath a typically Portuguese clubhouse, from where you can enjoy spectacular panoramic views over the sea and the distant mountains, together with an overall view of eleven of the course’s holes.

This golf course is situated in a region abounding in evocative memories of the Portuguese Discoveries. Only 15 minutes away is the ancient city of Lagos, overlooking the sea and one of the liveliest and most interesting places in the Algarve. On the headland of Ponta de Sagres, a gigantic rocky spur jutting out into the ocean, are some buildings that were founded by Prince Henry the Navigator, reminding us that this site is an important part of world history. Close by is the Cabo de São Vicente (Cape St. Vincent), opening out onto a vast horizon of sky and sea and marking the south-western tip of mainland Europe.
