Hidden deep in the heart of the Western Algarve the “Jewel in the Crown” Santo Antonio Golf Course designed by the Spanish Architect Pepe Gancedo and opened in 1987 is a fabulous undulating course with incredible panoramic views. No golf hole the same, the course balances itself from the fabulous short par 3 - 5th hole where subject to conditions club selection can be anything from a wedge to a 4 - iron and the incredibly testing par - 5, 9th hole with a ravine in front of a raised green making both the second and third shots difficult to visualise. The back 9 is the highlight of this fabulous experience, views from the 13th tee are exceptional and the quality of the final six holes are as good as can be found in the Algarve. The short par 3 - 15th over water into a narrow green, the drivable par 4 - 16th and the testing par 4 -17th with a watery grave awaiting a wayward second shot are a superb set of holes culminating in the fantastic 18th hole with raised green in front of the club house where a great shot will be applauded by those already enjoying the fruits of the 19th! Golf Santo António offers the best in golf and its additional facilities make it an excellent ‘all round’ golf holiday destination.
