Aroeira 2 Golf Course

Portugal Lisbon

18 Holes - Par 72 - 7004 yards

Designed by the architect Donald Steel, with 18 long holes that follow the perimeter of 6 large lakes, the Aroeira 2 golf course was inaugurated in April 2000. The course was built to European Tour recommendation standards in order to host major international golf events.

One of the course's characteristics is its 5 tees per hole, making it suitable for all levels of players.

The course has a fairly different concept from Aroeira 1, consisting of large fast greens, some of which are more than 700 m2 and are equipped with Penn A2 grass. Aroeira II is the first Portuguese golf course to use this type of grass on its greens, which can be cut to a height of only 2 mm. Despite its inviting nature of greens, the course becomes increasingly difficult as you move from hole number 1 to number 9 (stroke 1), as well as from number 10 to number 18 (stroke 2). There are bunkers on the fairways, some of them in the Scottish style of pot bunkers. But the sand traps are not the only obstacle that have to be taken into account: because of the course's five large lakes, water is a fairly constant hazard, particularly at the last nine holes.
