Summary:

Pinheiros Altos Golf Resort, like San Lorenzo Golf Resort, is separately owned but set on land which forms part of the huge Quinta do Lago Estate.
 
Like all developments on the Quinta do Lago Estate, Pinheiros Altos Golf Resort is a luxurious resort designed for golfing holidays.  In addition to a fantastic 27 hole golf layout the resort offers bars, restaurants numerous golf villas, swimming pools and other leisure activities.
 
Pinheiros Altos is laid out on rising, undulating land beside the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve and behind San Lorenzo Golf Club.
 
The course, designed by Ronald Fream (USA) in 1992, was originally an 18 hole layout but was extended in 2007 to offer three loops of nine holes with very different characteristics - Oliveiras (Olives); Pinheiros (Pines); Sobreiros (Corks) at 2552 metres.
 
The Pines (Pinheiros) at 2,349 metres is set out over undulating ground covered in pine trees (as the name would suggest). It was created from five holes from the front nine of the original 18 hole course plus four holes created in the development of 2007. The tree lined fairways will punish wayward drives and the strategically placed bunkers capture inaccurate approach shots, but it is offers a great and fair challenge and the beautiful Par 3 9th will cheer the spirits even if you lose your ball!  
 
The Olives (Oliveiras), 2,448 metres is the back nine from original 18 hole course. It is set along the banks of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve offering wide, gently rolling fairways meandering between lakes, beautiful views and regular sightings of exotic birds. The 8th hole, with its island green is undoubtedly the signature hole.
 
The Corks (Sobrieros) at 2,552 metres is the longest of the three loops and generally considered the toughest. Set along lower ground towards the coast and offering some lovely views, The Corks is a mixture of holes from the original course with the addition of new holes in 2007.


Pinheiros Altos is one of the most popular courses on the Algarve.

Played the Olives & Corks loops and have to say - fantastic! The clubhouse was friendly and food good. Course is well laid out, visually interesting and excellently maintained. Will definitely return.
