Golf at The Pestana Alvor Praia Beach & Golf Hotel

There are several golf courses surrounding this hotel. The closest one is the legendary Alto Golf (2 kilometres away), the last one designed by the famous architect, Sir Henry Cottons.

This 18-hole golf course is certainly challenging for any golf-lover. A 600-metre par 5 has been named “Sir Henry Challenge” for the difficulty proposed to the sportsmen that set foot on this beautiful green.

Located 22 kilometres away are the Gramacho and Vale da Pinta courses. The latter has hosted the European Seniors Tour Qualifying final eight consecutive times. Known not only for the playability of its fields, this golf course offers a stunning location, where both players and passers by may soak in some of natures most enchanting wonders. The former course distinguishes itself for its unique design by Ronald Fream and Nick Price. There are 27 greens with 18 holes and various tee points for players to experience a truly wonderful golfing experience.

The Pestana group run some of the Algarve’s most fascinating golf courses. Guests at the Pestana Alvor Praia may have a discount when using one of their several greens.
