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.
