Enjoy Winter Golf at Estoril Golf Course


 

Playing golf during winter months has become widely accepted and more popular. In the suburb of Lisbon in Portugal, easily accessible from the Lisbon International Airport and just two hours from one of the finest cities in Europe lies Estoril Coast where golfers can experience and enjoy sunshine all year-long.

Estoril Coast in Portugal is endowed with superb hotels and restaurants, large beaches with beautiful sands, big casinos, and vast shopping areas. Having seven excellently laid out golf courses with a year-round of good weather, it is therefore a great golf travel destination. Tourist-golfers will have lots of options to enjoy the quality of the courses whether they are on a golf vacation, spending some time off work, having school vacations or just enjoying a simple holiday break.

Estoril Golf Course is a classic course laid out close along the coast showing off the charm of the old world from way back 1930s. Designed by Mackenzie Ross, it may be a bit short compared with modern standard course distances but every golf shot in this course would require challenge and skill to map the way around. Several holes are excellently designed and positioned to provide tests and challenges during the golf game.

Golfers will surely enjoy every step within the best greens of the world as they roam around accompanied by the wonderful aroma of eucalyptus, pine and mimosa trees. The natural scenery simply provides the peace and relaxation which is what almost everyone looks for in any travel vacation.

The new features added to the course are the motorway and bridge where golfers have to cross midway during the round. Not many courses offer the same which takes you after the 8th hole and brings you back for the 16th hole.

The temperature from October to March averages around 20 degrees. These are warm, dry and sunny days which is best suited for golfing. Night time however is a bit chilly at around 8 to 10 degrees but thanks to the new base layer clothing technology, this won’t be a problem any longer.
