Penha Longa Atlantic

Last Updated:

What we say

Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr. Golf travel writer Steve Killick was recently in Lisbon and returned raving about this RTJ2 and Kyle Phillips track. “It is every bit as dramatic as, say, Praia D’El Rey – just without any residential development,” says Killick. Known as a brutal course, it has woodland and hillside sections. Nestled high up in the Sintra hills, this former site of an ancient monastery now has two challenging courses (the Monastery and the Atlantic) which enjoy panoramic vistas of the Estoril and Sintra coastline in the distance. The unusual pink clubhouse and hotel are inforgettable!

It is supported by a hotel, two putting greens, driving range with 20 bays on grass, restaurant, bar and golf shop.

  • 3.5 out of 5 Penha Longa under renovations

    By Pat&Bob

    The Golf Course is probably very good but it is losing of its interest due to refurbishments. They are crossing several holes and closing other. The greens are still under repair and you need a buggy to orientate yourself. It is still a nice experience but one can be disappointed if with high expectations. In this case, I guess it is better to wait for the end of the works, end of 2009. My web reference:
