Vale da Pinta golf course hosted the Chez Carlos Golf Society this week for a most enjoyable game of golf. It is a beautiful 18 hole par 71 golf course, with a distance of 6,127mts from the white tees. Vale da Pinta golf course has a good layout and all the usual hazards including bunkers and lakes but also a variety of trees including carob, fig and ancient olive trees, making the golf course a challenge for golfers of all abilities.
The golf course is in good condition with firm bermuda grass fairways, good greens and some wonderful holes.

The favourite hole of the day was the 6th, par 4, stroke index 2, with a left hand dog leg which needs a well positioned tee shot to leave the green in view. Nearest the pin was played on the 15th, a downhill par 3 proctected by a large bunker, and that was won by Mair Robinson. Other great holes of golf course are the 4th, par 5 and the 9th, although a bit short it’s a nice hole if you manage to avoid the trees in the left corner. Vale da Pinta golf course has many elevated tee shots, a real pleasure to play, a true test of any golfers skill and well worth a visit. The golf course has been host to the European Senior Tour Qualifying Final for the last 8 years and has been voted one of the best designed golf courses in the Algarve.
