Thought I saved the best for last
I thought I had saved the best course for our last course in Portugal. Even though the course layout is fantastic, the greens were in such bad shape, we decided to take 2 putts and go on to the next hole. I didn't expect that a resort of this caliber, would allow their main course to get into this bad a condition. The good news, the tees and fairways are in good shape, the bunkers so-so.
Pretty Course with Several Outstainding Holes
Penha Longa is a top-notch resort that has something of the feel of an English country estate, only warmer. The course is a cracker. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr, it makes great use of the considerable height it enjoys with some impressively elevated tees, sweeping fairways and splendid views. Olive, cork and eucalyptus trees help provide definition and water plays its part in creating a rich and lovely landscape. About 7000 yards off the tips, it has hosted the Portuguese Open and rightfully deserves its high ranking among the very best courses on the continent.
