Located in a protected National Park a short drive from the popular beach town of Cascais, and the scenic fairytale town of Sintra, the spectacular Penha Longa Resort has been a popular part of the Lisbon golf scene since the Robert Trent Jones Jr. design opened in 1992.
The resort offers 27 holes, with the 18-hole Atlantic Championship course the headline act. Attesting to the exceptional condition and challenging layout, Penha Longa hosted the Portugal Open on the European Challenge Tour on multiple occasions, most recently in 2010.
Unlike many of its coastal neighbors, Penha Longa is nestled into a hillside, offering spectacular views across the southern Sintra mountains from its undulating layout.
The most iconic feature of Penha Longa is the ancient Roman aqueduct, which provides a striking backdrop to a number of signature holes. The tree-lined fairways make for a secluded, peaceful round, without imposing on the playability of the course.
The 5* Ritz Carlton Hotel at Penha Longa Resort is an exceptional and striking property that offers all the luxuries you would expect from such an elite establishment. The abundant facilities include pools, a spa, and fine eateries, including two Michelin-starred restaurants. Our pick is MIDORI, a Japanese sushi spot, offering a refined Asian twist on Portugal’s most popular produce.
Ensure you experience magical Sintra during your stay. The nearby hilltop town, famed for its palaces of former monarchy, is a picture-perfect setting and one of Portugal’s most loved destinations.
In nearby Cascais, dine at O Pescador, a perennial favorite for Premier Golf clients when visiting the area, a quintessentially Portuguese restaurant serving the best fish in town.
Portugal’s capital city is a cultural and historical hub set along the Atlantic Ocean coast. From its golf courses and vast green spaces to the bars and beaches that adorn the coastline, Portugal’s capital provides the ideal location for a golf vacation.
