Vilamoura Victoria

Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal

At the time of creation, Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course was hailed as the most ambitious golf project Portugal had ever witnessed. Designed by true golfing legend, Arnold Palmer, there is absolutely no doubt that it has lived up to that lofty billing.

Covering some 90 hectares, the venue encompasses one of the most complete golf complexes in Europe, and features an exceptional driving range and a putting green of some 2,500 m2. All of this has made it the obvious venue of choice for many of the top international tournaments to visit Portugal in recent times. Indeed, it has served as host to one of the European Tour flagship events, the Portugal Masters, on every occasion since 2007, while the World Cup Championship was staged there in 2005. The Par-72 Championship layout, measuring 6.651 meters (7,273 yards), incorporates and has ensured the preservation of natural wetlands on-site, as well as the typical vegetation of carob, olive and almond trees. A significant proportion of Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course’s acreage is occupied by lakes, forming hazards to be avoided but which also have a strategic purpose in providing reservoirs for irrigation.  Water and undulationg fairways play a big part of the 17th and 18th holes which are testament to the fantastic design.Although the course is designed to championship standard, much thought was taken in designing different tees to accommodate every level of golfer.  The clever design of the course makes every hole from any tee incorporate all the potential and well positioned hazards creating a world class test of golf.
