Silves Pestana Golf
Next to the historic and peaceful city of Silves this field is anything but peaceful! Low handicap players will find it a serious challenge to end the game under par. The highest handicaps with relaxation and, above all, concentration, can also enjoy the course mainly by contact with nature. Most of the holes offer spectacular views of the mountains and the much appreciated natural surroundings. The design of the fairways between citrus farms gives the course a very regional character.
