ALGARVE -  Pine Cliffs - Presentation


The Pine Cliffs layout, designed by Martin Hawtree, of the English firm Hawtree & Son, the same firm that designed the Cerregueira course, is located between Albufeira and Vilamoura, in a area called Praia da FalÚsia.

Pine Cliffs is more than a golf course: it is a garden. It has only nine holes with a length of 2274 metres, and is a group of four par 3's, four par 4's and, according to the card, one par 5, of about 400 metres which in reality should be a par 4. However, it is an excellent hole. 

But the ex-libris of Pine Cliffs is the 6th hole, played over a ravine a few dozen metres deep, with a view over Algarve's vast, inviting sandy beaches.
