We loved to play at Pena Longa. Beautiful landscape, architecture, challenging and fun experience. A bonus was the sound from Estoril raceway. The greens was not the best in July, but we was warned when we booked. Even if it was low season and not...More

Played the championship course in June. The greens are dreadful, diseased, slow and full of weeds. They intend to core but I don't believe this will resolve their problem, the greens require a full renovation…...a real shame.
