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.
