It's fair to say we play a lot of golf in Lisbon. With Hole19 HQ located in the heart of the city, logistically it's a no-brainer. Yet even if we weren't, these courses would still rank high on our continental wishlist.
Here's a list of the best golf courses to play in Lisbon Portugal, direct from the team here at Hole19:
Oitavos Dunes Golf Club
Quinta do Peru Golf Course
Belas Clube de Campo Golf CourseBelas Clube de Campo is a favourite amongst Hole19 community members and employees alike. Situated just 20 minutes outside of Lisbon it's very easy to get to and offers an undulating challenge for golfers of all abilities. At 6,680 yards it doesnt need you to be the longest off the tee, but with tight fairways lined with out-of-bounds markers you will need to be pretty darn accurate. If you're after a great golfing experience with minimum travel required, Belas Clube de Campo is a sound option for you.
Aroeira I and Aroeira II golf courseAroeira I was dubbed "the Wentworth of Lisbon" by UK journalists. It's 6,650 yard expanse is set amongst nature and played through tree-lined fairways - you'll need your driving 'A-game' with you for this one. Aroeira II may be the younger sibling of the two golf courses but that doesn't make it any less formidable. Designed to high European Tour standards and with the threat of water on no fewer than 9 holes, it's a real test. After a golf course in the Lisbon area near the coast? The Aroeira resort could be the perfect stop for you.
Penha Longa Golf Club
Ribagolfe I and Ribagolfe II golf course
Once compared with Valderrama, **Ribagolfe I** is without a doubt one of the top golf courses near Lisbon. At 7,370 yards in length (from the black tees) its narrow fairways demand distance as well as accuracy. Whilst slightly shorter at 6,800 yards, **Ribagolfe II** is a more forgiving proposition but remains equally as appealing as its larger sibling. Located just 40 minutes outside of the city, Ribagolfe is another one of the highly recommended golf courses in the Lisbon area.
