Course Overview and Details

Updated information by the golf course professional

This mountain course situated against the majestic backdrop of the Serra da Estrela and the Serra do Caramulo was the first golf course to be built in the Beiras region. The mountainous Montebelo golf course, dotted here and there with gorse and heather, runs through clumps of pine and oak-trees. It is divided into two parts, named according to their main geographical landmarks: the Caramulo course (the first nine holes) and the Estrela Course (the second nine holes).
Doglegs are a constant feature of this course and the final sequence is truly unforgettable: the last three holes provide breathtaking views over valleys, streams, hills, lakes and well protected greens. The most memorable hole, however, is number 12 (a long par 3, running downhill to the green with a bunker to the left and a lake behind). The hole is considered to be 'the soul of the course' because of its challenging physical characteristics and the unique landscape that surrounds it.
