Overview

Just 45 minutes from Porto and one hour from the Douro valley, surrounded by unspoiled nature and with breathtaking views, Amarante Golf Course is, for sure, the best option for those who seek, further to challenging golf, the unique views and wines from the Douro wine region. Located in an extraordinary landscape the Amarante golf course also includes several waterfalls. Hilly & narrow but gentle to play: When driving off from the tees at the start of the holes, the Amarante golf course demands particularly precise shots because of its narrow design, and because of the bunkers protecting greens and lakes, which are decisive ingredients of the game at holes number 3, 8, 12 and 17. Despite being a hilly golf course rising 600 metres above sea level, most of the 18 holes of Amarante Golf offer a gentle game, because the architect, Jorge Santana da Silva has been able to limit the climbs to a minimum. Amarante' signature hole: Hole number 4 of Amarante golf course must be made mention of, being a par 4 for just 306 metres, but nevertheless offering a considerable challenge. Its approach shot must be made onto a green raised 10 metres above the fairway which measures just twenty metres wide and seven metres long. The best players can hope for a birdie if they perform well on the par 5 holes. Points of Interest:Amarante Golf Course is near the famous Relais & Chateaux Casa da Calçada and the famous Largo do Paço Michelin star restaurant.

A difficult course, especially at your first visit. Due to the height differences, distances and rolling of the ball are difficult to estimate. The playing handicap initially suggests otherwise. Often playing the course will certainly help.

Amarante made us feel warmly welcome. We were lucky with the weather and a tough but interesting course kept us all (parents and millennials) happy and challenged. We were a mix of handicaps but all enjoyed a great day out. The extremely reasonable restaurant and...More

challenging as it is going up and down with many bunkers. No tee time booking was required, could play immediately. It is advisable to take a cart. Service is very good.

A challenging course that makes you feel very welcome. Better for playing a second time. Everyone in the club makes you feel that you are having a great day out and the course is spectacular!

If you visit Portugal for a golfholiday, this course should be on your list, a beautifull course with great vieuws and nice people, for dinner you can take the restaurant, between hole 9 and 10.

We played here twice. The first time was a huge surprise as the first hole is a par 5 which goes steeply downhill with lots of blind shots. There are other holes which have blind shots which can make it a trap for losing balls....More

Walked this course carrying clubs, maybe that was a mistake because you needed to be a mountain goat. Very wet underfoot so never really benefited from the slopes (or suffered from them either) I'd like to play this place dry but €40 is a bit...More
