Aroeira Golf Course is referred to by golf specialists as one of the best courses in Europe, Aroeira I hosted the Portugal Open in 1996 and 1997, various Ladies Open and the Qualifying School of the Ladies European Tour.
Situated within a beautiful protected area just 25 km from the heart of Lisbon and 600 metres from a stretch of sandy beaches, Aroeira is the largest golf resort in the Greater Lisbon Area. Providing the perfect environment for the whole family to relax, the Aroeira Golf Resort is a fully enclosed 345 hectare property set within a mature pine forest.
Aroeira II Golf Course was built to European Tour recommendation standards in order to host major international golf events. One of the course's characteristics is its 5 tees per hole, making it suitable for all levels of players.
The course has a fairly different concept from Aroeira 1, consisting of large fast greens, some of which are more than 700 m2. There are bunkers on the fairways, some of them in the Scottish style of pot bunkers. But the sand traps are not the only obstacle that have to be taken into account: because of the course's five large lakes, water is a fairly constant hazard, particularly at the last nine holes.
