• Vila do Bispo

In the heart of the western Algarve, Parque da Floresta is one of the most spectacular golf courses in Europe. Designed by Spanish architect Pepe Gancedo, the course is a short distance from golden beaches, quaint fishing villages and the Costa Vicentina Nature Reserve – a paradise for bird watchers. This fascinating course offers attractive views of the countryside and is played on uneven terrain through eucalyptus-covered ravines and picturesque watercourses. The final hole is a challenging test, which finishes on an elevated green below the clubhouse. A fantastic, imaginatively designed course.
