Pinheiros Altos course is based in the Quinta do Lago estate and is one of the harder golf courses in the Algarve. It now consists of three sets of nine holes (until the start of this year it was an 18 hole course), as well as extensive practice facilities.
Both courses are lined with pine trees and have numerous water features to contend with.
Many of the holes on the Corks Course are more open and forgiving such as hole 3 and 4 and the two par 5´s, 7 and 8 that run parallel to each other and allow for a bit of fairway swapping which seemed to be quite popular amongst fellow golfers.
The Olives Course, is part of the original 18 and is also home to the course´s signature hole - the 17th hole - a par 3 over water to an island green, based on the famous 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass, home to the Player´s Championship. Bring plenty of golf balls for this one!!
Pinheiros Altos is an extremely popular course for every standard of golfer, including celebrities!!!! The clubhouse has a good menu, a fun after game atmosphere and very friendly waiters.
