Dom Pedro Victoria Course:
Upon opening, the Victoria Golf Course was hailed as the most ambitious golf project Portugal had ever witnessed. Designed by true golfing legend, Arnold Palmer, there is absolutely no doubt that it has lived up to that lofty billing. The venue encompasses one of the most complete golf complexes in Europe, and features an exceptional driving range and a putting green practice areas. All of this has made it the obvious venue of choice for many of the top international tournaments to visit Portugal in recent times. Indeed, it has served as the host venue to the European PGA Tour's Portugal Masters since 2007 and the World Cup Championship was staged there in 2005.
The Par-72 Championship layout, measuring 6.651 meters (7,273 yards) from the Palmer tees, incorporates and has ensured the preservation of natural wetlands on-site, as well as the typical vegetation of carob, olive and almond trees. A significant proportion of Victoria’s acreage is occupied by lakes, forming hazards to be avoided but which also have a strategic purpose in providing reservoirs for irrigation. A number of teeing options on each hole (often as many as six are offered), accompanied by wide but undulating fairways, provide a fair test of golf, although water and cleverly-positioned bunkers pose a constant threat.
The Victoria course is one of the best golf courses in Portugal, with a layout that presents a challenge even for the most seasoned players.

Praia D'El ReyMariott Resort and Golf Course
Clinging to the edge of the Iberian peninsula, sandwiched between Spain and the wild Atlantic Ocean, Portugal is the westernmost nation of mainland Europe. The Tagus river slices it into north and south, emptying into the Atlantic at the capital, Lisbon, a tangle of medieval streets with a lively arts and cafe scene.
North of Lisbon, near the walled city of Óbidos, lays Praia D'El Rey a commercial tourism, golf and residential beach resort on Portugal's western Atlantic coast 106 kilometres north of the country's capital, Lisbon. The resort features a Marriott Hotel and several hundred more private villas, townhouses and apartments - which are owned mostly by Irish, British and Scandinavian nationals. Properties within the resort are usually either second/holiday homes or lived in year-round by retirees.
South of Lisbon, rolling plains give way to the beaches of the southern Algarve coast that spills to either side of the prominent southern town of Faro. Twenty minutes east of Faro is Vilamoura, one of the largest single tourist complexes in Europe. Vilamoura has the largest marina in Portugal with 845 berths, two beaches, a Lawn Bowling Club with two grass greens, a Tennis Center, Shooting Club, 5 Star and 4 Star Hotels, Tourist Apartments, self-catering Villas, Night Clubs, an International Casino with glamorous shows, and 5 Championship Golf Courses.

Praia D’El Rey:
The course has been voted into the top 10 in Portugal since it opened in 1997 and after one round it's very easy to see why. The front nine has a parkland feel to it as it runs in and out of the pine trees, while the back nine offers some of the best links golf in Portugal. Holes 13, 14 and 15 run along the Atlantic Ocean, providing fantastic views of the sea, dunes and back towards the pine forest. The 12th has to be the pick of the bunch; your approach shot to the green is played with the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop and once you arrive on the green the Belengas Islands become visible. Overall it is a fun layout with a diverse group of holes that will make you want to return as soon as you finish.
