In Vilamoura, Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are long established as well as very recently developed Championship courses of the highest quality. Elsewhere you can find the more gentle challenge of par 3 courses at Balaia and Vale do Milho near Carvoeiro.  In Açoteias, where you’ll find most of our properties, is the coast-hugging 9-hole course at the Sheraton Pine Cliffs Country Club.
