Preserved nature so close to Lisbon
Set in a 345 hectare estate very close to Caparica which has a long beach with 30 kilometres of white sand, Aroeira Golf is 20 minutes away from Lisbon, on the south bank of the river Tejo. On a clear day the Portuguese capital can easily be seen from the tee of hole number 1. Designed by Frank Pennick, the Aroeira Golf Course skilfully blends the needs of a championship golf course and the harmonious surroundings of natural landscape.
Along the pine wood forest
The Aroeira I Golf Course runs through a pine wood sprinkled with wild flowers, a genuine nature park where many kinds of birds live. The English press named this the "Wentworth of Lisbon", and went on to describe the similarities between Aroeira and the famous London club.
The key points of Aroeira I
The Aroeira I Golf Course provides a variety of game situations; this means players may use almost all their clubs. On the first round, hole 8 stands out, with its Par 3 for 190 metres and a green with a remarkable inclination.
On the second round of Aroeira I the highlight is hole number 11, a par 4, redesigned by Robert Trent Jones. From here the tee-off is a blind shot into a narrow fairway with trees on both sides. It is followed by a spectacular approach to a green closely protected by water and bunkers, which reminds one of hole number 11 at Augusta National, where the U.S. Masters is played every year.
Some prestigious competitions
Aroeira I Golf Course hosted the Portugal Open in 1996 and 1997, various Ladies Open and the Qualifying School of the Ladies European Tour.
