Alto Golf Pestana
Designed by the legendary architect Sir Henry Cotton, Alto Golf Pestana is a challenging course for all levels of handicap. Located west of Portimão, close to Alvor, the course extends over two valleys and offers a considerable test of the capabilities of all golfers, with its strategic bunkers , doglegs , well-positioned trees and elevated greens. The charming Serra de Monchique offers breathtaking scenery, while pine, carob, almond, fig and olive trees line the fairways. The most famous hole is the 16th, a 600-meter Par 5 known as “The Giant” or “Sir Henry's Challenge”.
