Pestana Beloura Golf
Golf Club Overview
Designed by the famous architect Rocky Rockmore, this course is flanked by Eucalyptus, Chestnuts, Pines, Magnolias, Palms and Olive trees. Water also comes into play on many of the holes.
Set in a 60-hectare area of parkland, half way between the towns of Cascais and Sintra, Pestana Beloura is one of the newest courses to be built on the Estoril coast. Designed by Rocky Roquemore and built in 1994, the course forms part of a residential development and runs along fairly flat ground ensuring that the round be pleasurable and not exhausting. Its 18 holes, with excellent views over the Sintra mountain range, extend over 6,428 yards with a par of 72.
More than 40,000 trees have been planted to create a stunning green landscape and several lakes also help to create a varied and interesting backdrop. The course provides a good test where both skill and a cool head are required. This can be seen when approaching the parallel holes of the 16th and 17th, which combine narrow fairways with a lake in between them that demand accurate drives.
