Pro's Tips: The first hole slopes away downhill to a generous fairway to ease you in this demanding course. The par 3 second hole uphill is well protected by bunkers and tress. The third hole is set to sort you out with a par 5 uphill - bit of a blind shot if you are a long hitter of the ball to get position to attack the green. The par 3 forth hole is not easy because of a wall across the fairway to block a bad shot. The par 3 sixth is the signature hole of this course and requires a good shot to the green as anywhere else is in trouble - probably in the deep ravine! The par 5 eighth hole has super views along the western Algarve coastline and the fairway is disected by the same ravine as the sixth hole to add to your wellbeing! The thirteenth par 5 hole has spectacular views over Lagos bay hence the course name Boavista! This is a golf course with many attributes to fulfill your expectations.
