A must play course in the Lisbon area. Set in the hills near Sintra, the views are magnificent. The course is in excellent condition, but the wind conditions make it very tough in places. There is a par 3 (around 14/15) where you need a...More

This course was beautiful. Nice layout, well maintained--but the wind! I guess I needed to play it to fully understand European golf? The wind was so severe that it turned hooks into 100 yard slices. It blew our balls sometimes well in excess of 100...More

The club's facilities and the attached hotel are both fabulous. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the course. After the first 3 holes, the course deteriorated badly. It was scruffy and unkempt - such a disappointment in view of the spectacular background scenery.More

Great condition and well maintained. Both the 18 and 9 hole courses. Buggies available to rent which do come in handy for the 18 holes! Thoroughly enjoyable game by all!

I would highly recommend this golf course. It's in a beautiful location among the forested hillside outside Lisbon. The course is very well kept and a good test for any keen golfer. Excellent clubhouse and top class customer service throughout.

Just played Penha Longa again after reviewing it in November and I have to change my opinion on it. We played on a fine day which always helps when reviewing the experience. I have to say that the course is one of the most scenic...More
