This course holds 92nd spot and meanders through 300 acres of pine forest, with the Arrabida mountain range as the backdrop. This is a classic Rocky Roquemore course with vast American style bunkers and expansive water hazards. It has featured on the European Challenge Tour.
Played early Feb '12 and was in fine form with the green set to a pacey 12 on the stimpmeter. First impression is that it looks as though the grass is burnt! Don't be alarmed. Bermuda grass goes brown in when the temperatures dips in the winter. The green soon comes back. Well worth a trip.
We waited patiently for the Members to finish their weekend competition and teed off just before 1pm. This time it was an individual stableford full handicap format. If we were expecting slower greens we were mistaken – they were once again set to 12.
