LISBOA - Ribagolfe I - Presentation


This is one of the two courses that goes to make up this sprawling resort lying in a pretty forest some 45 minutes outside of Lisbon. With E.G.D., Peter Townsend designed this dearly as championship course, if only for this yardage. Total length is 7.370 yards but at least is an easy course to walk despite the beautifully sloping terrain and dales lined with magnificent cork oak-trees. Having said that, the large number of tees boxes makes this course where most golfers might card a flattering score because the greens are huge with only a few contours. It can be tougher for the long-hitters, because while they can get rip at leisure they need to be a careful with narrow fairways, some rather large bunkers and a few water hazards the threaten the shot; on the 14th, you will need to know just how far you can hit it to make that short-cut.
