OTHER INFORMATION
Parque da Floresta, the centre of a resort, and its course runs over hills behind the fishing village of Salema, which is near the historic town of Lagos and not far from the Costa Vicentina Nature Reserve.

Its widely varying holes run through valleys and eucalyptus-covered ravines, while around the course olive, palm and pine trees are planted.

The first hole, 525 metres for a Par 5, faces toward the sunrise and presents a serious challenge for those intending reach its green in just two shots. Hole 5 is a Par 3 over just 108 metres; but here the ball is only playable if it falls straight onto the green. These first nine holes end memorably, for the third shot to the green must go over a river.

On the second round the highlight is hole number 11 whose green is protected by water. Notable too is hole number 18, which ends in an amphitheatre placed right beneath the clubhouse.

The clubhouse is typically Portuguese and provides spectacular panoramic views over mountains and sea, an also a general view over no less than eleven holes.
