Versão Português Português

The Amarante course is located in the estate of Quinta da Deveza and is set on a delightful landscape - with the towns of Amarante and Marco de Canaveses, as well as the mountains of Marão and Aboboreira, in the background. It is a narrow, winding hilly course, calling for great accuracy, particularly at the bunkers protecting the greens and at the lakes that are brought into play at holes number 3, 8, 12 and 17.

Despite rising to 600 meters above sea level, most of the 18 holes offer players a gentle game, because the architect managed to limit the climbs to a minimum.

Its famous hole is number 4, a par 4 that is only 306 meters long, but nevertheless offers a considerable challenge. Here, the approach shot must be played onto a raised green that is only twenty meters wide and seven meters long. The best players can hope for a birdie if they perform well on the par 5 holes. This course was chosen to host the National Professional Golf Championships in 1999 and 2000.
