Hilly & narrow but gentle to play
When driving off from the tees, the Amarante golf course demands particularly precise shots because of its narrow design. The bunkers protecting greens and lakes are decisive ingredients of the game at holes number 3, 8, 12 and 17. A good distance judgement and green reading is also required because of the elevated, undulated and fast greens, one of the Amarante golf course trademarks. Despite being a hilly golf course rising 600 metres above sea level, Amarante Golf course offers a gentle game. This is thanks to architect Jorge Santana da Silva, who has been able to limit the climbs to a minimum.
Amarante' signature hole
