Vilamoura Pinhal

The Vilamoura Pinhal Golf Course is a course distinguished by fairways lined with pine trees. Inaugurated in 1976, it was originally designed by Frank Pennink. Later, in 1985, it was partly redesigned by Robert Trent Jones, who introduced new challenges into the course. Vilamoura Pinhal golf course built in the middle of a beautiful pine wood, with panoramic views over the sea, one of the main characteristics of this course is the small size of its greens, requiring great precision from the golfer in terms of approach shots. The first nine holes meander through an exclusive residential complex, the second nine are more open, undulating land with occasional glimpses of the sea beyond.

Vilamoura Pinhal golf course Pro's Tips: The first hole is a tricky par 5. The drive is blind, over a gentle rise. The second shot is, in principle, relatively straightforward. The approach must be played with determination to carry the deep bunkers which protect a two tiered green inclined towards the line of play. The 4-par fourth hole (348 metres) is probably the signature hole of Pinhal. There is a small lake which comes into play at the second shot - or possibly with an overly long drive! The green is undulating and torturous, making par a real achievement even if your second shot has found the putting surface. Vilamoura Pinhal golf course there is water too, at the par-3 eighth. Although the elevated tee gives a feeling of confidence by its very height, the green is immediately behind the small lake which protects it. A timid shot may not find the bank and roll back into the water. The green itself is stepped and generous from side to side - not a lot of depth though. On the back nine, the "new" fifteenth has changed from being relatively benign. Only a well judged drive will allow a second shot, which must carry a meandering ditch and a scattering of trees and bushes to fly the green.
