This prestigious links course is considered one of the top 10 courses in Portugal and has already hosted two European Tour events.

The Estela course was built over three kilometres of beautiful sand dunes along the Minho coast, providing breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean. Situated near the lively summer resort of Póvoa de Varzim and only 20 minutes from Porto´s international airport, this course was designed by the Portuguese architect Duarte Sottomayor and is a typical links course in the best Scottish traditions, apart from its use of Bermuda grass.

Two large lakes add to the beauty of the course, which can become quite challenging when the wind is blowing. Inaccurate drives are severely punished by landing in the sand dunes and, on almost every occasion that a ball lands off the fairway, there is little chance of players reaching the green with their second shot.

It was voted the seventh best Portuguese course in the biennial poll organised by the European Golf magazine and has already hosted two European Tour events: the Portuguese Open in 1991 and the Atlântico/Vinho Verde Open in 1990.
