Victoria Golf Course is an 18-hole, par 72 championship course designed by the one and only Arnold Palmer. Part of the Dom Pedro Collection was inaugurated in 2004 with very ambitious expectations and it has lived up to them ever since.
Having hosted The Portugal Masters since 2007 and the World Club Championship in 2005 Victoria is considered one of the finest courses in Portugal. This course is characterized by its undulating fairways, many well-placed bunkers and various water hazards that require a good strategy and control. This course is kept in pristine conditions all year round and features one of the best practice facilities in the region.
Millenium Golf Course is an 18-hole, par 72 course and is part of the Dom Pedro Collection. This course was redesigned by Hawtree and Sons golf architects in 2000 where many tees greens and bunkers were rebuilt resulting in a more enjoyable and player-friendly course.
This course is characterized as a parkland course although there are various water hazards it features wider fairways than its neighbouring Vilamoura courses although there are some similarities.
Laguna Golf Course is an 18-hole, par 72 course and is part of the Dom Pedro Collection. Designed by Joseph Lee with the intention of creating a links style golf course with various water hazards. Besides being natural water reservoirs, the bodies of water also have a great role in maintaining the fauna diversity and balance. Being a mostly flat course with almost no trees the wind can play a decisive factor while paying Laguna.
The Old Course is one of the first established layouts in the region. A par 73, opened in 1969 and is part of the Dom Pedro Collection. Designed by Frank Pennink this is a course that stays in the memory of visiting golfers.
Set in an umbrella pinewood reserve the course was designed to take advantage of the natural surrounding contours and to challenge the most avid golfers. The first holes ask for a well-placed strategy and the correct choice of clubs while the back nine demands more distance. Being surrounded by trees the wind is almost a non-existing factor while playing The Old Course.
Pinhal golf course, designed by Frank Pennink and later refined by Robert Trent Jones Jr in 1985, is a Par 72 and part of the Dom Pedro Collection.
As the name suggests this course was carved in a pine tree forest making it a very memorable course that requires great accuracy. Most of the holes are soft doglegs but there are some distinct holes like the 4th, 8th, 17th and 18th where you either must navigate around well-placed trees, lakes or some slope variations.
