Top hint for this course

We thought we'd tell you a secret to score lower than your group. For the 6th, we recommend a delicate tee shot towards the corner of the left dogleg which will set you up nicely for an iron shot to reach the green. From here, we'll let your putting do the talking.

If this course is worthy of European Tours, it's time to prove your group is worthy.

This beautiful loop boasts many challenges and unique holes that separate it from others in the Algarve. It's strict fairways and well-placed hazards will be a tricky test for the squad.

Book this one if you want to challenge yourself before hitting the clubhouse. It'll feel like you've earned that pint after smashing the round.

Catch up with your friends while playing this championship course. It will live long in your memory.


Right from the start the fairways are cruel. The 2nd's narrow width will test your drive, but with precision, you can set up a nice approach shot if you favour the right side.

Hole 3 is a downhill par-4. A bit of welly on this drive and you could see yourself scoring low.

The 11th hole is a par-3, but don't let this deceive you. It's better to go long on this tee-off rather than come off too short by underestimating its length.

Finishing off the back nine, a wide fairway makes for a lovely par-5. An accurate drive straight down the fairway gifts you an excellent chance for a birdie.


Vale de Pinta has the most luxurious 19th hole in the Pestana Golf Resort. Settle into its relaxing and inviting atmosphere after hosting your own European Tour-style tournament.

Sitting outside admiring the terrain and getting stuck into the wide selection of beers on tap while getting a tan is what you deserve after a knackering round.

The kitchen staff offer a personalised catering service, but if that's not your thing the menu has a wide selection of grub that'll sort out everybody. It's a chance to unwind and prepare for the day.
