 Pestana Vale da Pinta golf course
The 8 times consecutive host of the European Seniors Tour Qualifying final, Vale de Pinta is rightly respected not just for its playability and challenging layout but for outstanding levels of beauty and enjoyment. Designed by the famous American golf course architect Ronald Fream and inaugurated in 1992 Vale de Pinta has earned its place as one of the best designed courses in Europe. Imagine the fairways of Bermuda grass, strategically placed sand bunkers, and greens clad in Pen Cross Bent grass. Not to mention ornamental lakes in a rolling terrain dotted with carob, fig, almond and olive trees (including one olive tree over 1200 years old!).

2017-03-05 - "A fair challenge also for mid to high handicappers and scenically nice to play as they have left several old olive trees in and along the fairways. The course winds amongst residential properties in part."

2012-02-14 - "Very dry fairways. Construction work on 2 holes. My flight was sent out 10 minutes before the actual T-time. I had to start on my own. Caddy master was not friendly. Rather in a bad mood! I did not feel welcome. Driving range far from clubhouse. Waited a lot! Needed 4,5 hours to finish. "
