Ranked in the top 30 Courses in Continental Europe, the 27-hole course at Penha Longa Resort designed by the famed Robert Trent Jones, Jr. is escapist golf at its best.
With its bold drives, courageous approaches and artful greens, it is both an adrenaline rush and a soothing journey through one of Portugal's most inspiring landscapes. Exciting at every turn, this championship challenge and host to the Portuguese Open, is a master test of variety and thrills.
Penha Longa Golf courses offer three different circuits: Atlantic Championship, Atlantic North and Atlantic South, providing completely different experiences throughout the amazing hills of Sintra and Penha Longa Resort.

The Atlantic Championship Course
The 18-hole Atlantic course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr, opened in 1992 and staged the Portuguese Open two years later. Every hole is different and exciting, with Jones using the contours to great effect. The course has a superb flow to it and the views throughout are magnificent, especially away to the coastal towns of Cascais and Estoril and to the blue Atlantic ocean.
The Monastery Course
The Monastery course, also designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., is the perfect complement to its sister course. The 9-hole course is less undulated than the Atlantic Championship, offering moderated challenges which suit all levels of players. The Penha Longa Monastery golf is also characterized by fast greens and narrow fairways and benefits from the stunning landscapes of the surrounding national park.
