Estoril Golf, Lisbon
Internationally famous for its location near the luxurious beach resort of Estoril, the Estoril Golf Course is situated 25 min. away from Lisbon and just 3 minutes away from the centre of Estoril.
The Estoril Golf course was designed by Mackenzie Ross and is known as one of the oldest and most emblematic club in Portugal. Well worth the drive if on a golf holiday in Lisbon. Since the opening of the Estoril Golf Course in 1936, a number of alterations and improvements have been made to its original layout.
Overlooking Estoril and the sea, the 5262 meter long course is set amongst eucalyptus, pine and mimosa trees, giving it a uniquely colourful touch. The architect and the successive green keepers have made excellent use of these various trees which, together with the uneven terrain, make the Estoril Golf Course challenging in terms of accuracy rather than distance. The Estoril Golf Course demands excellent tactics. The visually stunning par 3 holes, although they vary in length, all pose particular challenges and will be THE holes you remember from your golf holiday in Lisbon.
Estoril Golf Has Championship Pedigree
Two of the most important tournaments in the Portuguese golfing calendar have been held frequently at the Estoril Championship Golf Course: the Portuguese Open 20 times and the International Amateur Championship 62 times. The long list of famous golfers who have played Estoril includes S. Ballesteros, Colin Montgomerie, Sam Torrance, José M. Canizares, Gene Sarazen, Peter Allis and Bernhard Gallacher. Add some championship sparkle to your golf holiday in Lisbon with Estoril Golf Course.
The golf school in Estoril is highly recognized due to the professionalism and the competencies of the qualified PGA Golf Professionals. Besides individual golf lessons, clinics, weekly intensive programs and Greencard (Platzreife) courses, the Academy also offers Digital Video Swing Analyses and Professional Club Fitting.

Twenty years, after its opening, the management team decided to complete the Estoril golf course with a 9-hole course. The idea was to create an excellent 9-hole course in the same wonderfull surrondings. The Estoril Blue Course provides the perfect location for less experienced players to develop their skills and for those who want to practise but do not have 5 hours.
The caddies at the Estoril Golf Course are among the most experienced – some of them have worked for many PGA players while competing in Portugal.

They really do offer an experience you won’t forget on your golf holiday in Lisbon.
Nor should we forget the clubhouse of the Estoril Golf Club. Finish your golf game tasting the delights of Portuguese cuisine (but not only the hamburger is one of the best of the whole area), while you overlook hole number 18 and a spectacular view over the Atlantic Ocean from the veranda of the clubhouse restaurant.
