Golf Course Details:
Frank Pennick took a liking to Vilamoura and his second design in the area made the Pinhal or what or orignally what was the Vilamoura 2 golf course, Penninck originally opened the in 1976. In 1985 the course was re-designed by Robert Trent Jones Snr giving the golf course more character and making better use of the natural lanscape. The course now is typified by a rolling parkland design terrain making full use of the umbrella pines that are cleverly placed along the fairways and before and after the greens. The golf clubhouse was re-designed and improved in 2000 and is now a very modern one, one a generous veranda overlookng the driving range and practice facilities. The course measures some 6988 yards from the white tee and is therefore a great test - every time.
