There are 12 courses around the Lisbon area, many to the west near Estoril and Sintra. One of the benefits of the region is that it is possible to buy a golf pass for a specific number of rounds. In general prices vary with the day of the week or the time of day. Rounds bought individually start at around 50 euros yet a pass for 5 rounds will be 200 euros.
The highlight is surely Penha Longa which opened in the early 1990s. Its Atlantico Course is Par 72 and 7,000 yards from the white tees. There is also a 9 hole course Par 35 on the same site which was formerly a monastic estate.
The Estoril course is much shorter, its defence being the tree-lined fairways.
