WOW!!! We had such a fantastic golf holiday at Penha Longa Hotel & Golf Resort. Most importantly we got the most amazing upgrade to a beautiful suite which had THE best view of the course and was just super - I’m sure it was all down to Your Golf Travel that we got this fabulous treatment and I can’t thank them enough! They were falling over themselves to be nice to us and it was just the most lovely place and the course was good too (shame about my golf though!!). The concierge at Penha Longa were brilliant, the food amazing, the course in great shape and it was good weather - couldn’t really have asked for anything more (except a pint was £9!!) We definitely fancy going back there!

Golf courses at Penha Longa Resort
The Atlantic Course is Penha Longa's main attraction, and was designed by the esteemed Robert Trent Jones Junior, the man responsible for so many of the world's top courses. The 6,786 yard course is now ranked as one of the top 30 golf courses in continental Europe, and features many dramatic holes that are cut through the resort's amazing sloping landscape.
The course is divided into two distinct sections, with six holes running through a valley and the remainder straddling the hillside. Penha Longa is consistently regarded as one of the country's top five courses, and was the host for the Portuguese Open twice in the mid-1990s, and the Estoril Open in 1999.

Signature Hole: Hole 6, Par 5, 404 metres (442 yards), SI 18
Penha Longa’s signature hole is listed in the top 500 holes in the world. This beautiful par 5 has a Roman Aqueduct as part of its surroundings. There are many spacious bunkers throughout the hole, and a large lake awaits peacefully towards the left of the green.
The Atlantic Course may be the star attraction at Penha Longa, but its sister, the 9-hole Monastery Course is well worth a game. The layout is less undulating than the Atlantic, and is certainly not as challenging, but the views of the Sintra mountains are awe-inspiring, and are worth the trip alone.

Penha Longa Resort reviews
We had a great time on our golf holiday, Penha Longa was far and away the best course we thought. We also really liked Estoril, even though it was quite short - it is a really good course for 18-24 handicappers. Oitavos was nice, but harder because more exposed to wind and a bit longer. Enjoyable though. Thanks for your help,
