Alto - Portimão
This 18 hole, Par 72 golf course, was the last to be designed by the legendary Sir Henry Cotton.
The winding fairways and elevated greens reflect Sir Henry’s golfing philosophy of providing low handicap players with a testing game and still affording plenty of enjoyment for players at average club level and providing satisfaction and inspiration for beginners.
Designed along parkland lines, the exclusive 18 hole Par 72 course spans across two gently sloping valleys and runs to 6125 meters from the back tees.
The opening nine holes offer fine views over the bay of Lagos.
The back nine, set on rolling slopes, include the remarkable Henry Cotton Challenge, the longest Par 5 in Europe.
At 604 meters, it requires three long and accurate shots to avoid the lake, hold the angled fairway and find the small, well protected green.
Number of Holes: 18
Architect: Sir Henry Cotton
