Quinta do Peru is set in the Azeito region between Sesimbra and Setubal and is a huge favourite with UK golfers.
The American architect Rocky Roquemore was responsible for the project and has designed a course for amateur golfers. However, it also represents a challenge for professional players.
The course, with its many trees and wildflowers, offers a varied start, for the first three holes are all Par 5; then a Par 4 over 386 metres; and Par 3 over 186 meters.
The next nine holes are even more difficult. Take for example hole number 12, a Par 4 that, despite not being very long, has a lake running beside the fairway down to the green. Then comes what is probably the most difficult test on the course, hole 16, a Par 3 over 200 metres, where one needs to get over a lake to reach the green. After eighteen holes there is a number of golf-related activities available and also a clubhouse providing excellent views over the surrounding landscape, with the imposing and beautiful Arrabida mountain range in the background.
