Pestana Vila Sol

Pestana Vila Sol


This is one of the most highly regarded Algarve courses and has already been chosen to host the Portuguese Open. A complementary nine-hole loop was opened quite recently.

Situated in the heart of one of the most highly developed tourist areas in the Algarve, Vila Sol has become a picture postcard of Portuguese golf. The Portuguese Open was held here in both 1992 and 1993. Inaugurated in 1991, this is a typical inland golf course of the British school, designed by Donald Steel and already displaying a high level of maturity. Winding through an immense pine-wood, in which fig-trees, oaks and almond-trees also feature, the course is a serious test for any golfer´s strategic skills.

The fairways call for accurate driving, and there are several obstacles (lakes and bunkers) that constantly need to be coped with, as well as some really fast greens. Achieving a good final score largely depends on successfully negotiating the first four holes. The fourth hole in the recently-opened nine-hole loop is a par 5 that measures 519 metres and is the longest in the whole course, although several of the new holes are also very challenging.
