Preserved nature close to Lisbon
Aroeira I and Aroeira II Golf Course are 20 minutes away from Lisbon, on the south bank of the Tagus River. Aroeira Golf Resort is set in a 345 hectare estate close to the 30km long Caparica coast, Lisbon, Portugal. Designed by Frank Pennick, the Aroeira Golf Course, Portugal, 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 plays to 6.080m, demands great accuracy and placement off the tee in order to maximise opportunities to hit the greens in regulation. The Aroeira Golf Course also provides a variety of game situations; 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, home of the U.S. Masters.
Some prestigious competitions
Aroeira I Golf Course, near Lisbon, Portugal, hosted the Portugal Open in 1996 and 1997, several Ladie´s European Tour events and, in 2013, the European Men´s Club Trophy.
