A memorable experience on and off the course at one of Portugal’s most iconic golfing venues awaits players competing in this year’s Aroeira Trophy, which will take place from June 1-5.
Nicknamed the ‘Wentworth of Lisbon’ by many observers, Aroeira Golf Resort – which is 25km south of Lisbon – is a two-time host of the Portuguese Open and is ranked among the best golf resorts in Europe.
Organised by ORIZONTE – Lisbon Golf, tournament packages for the 2022 Aroeira Trophy cost €470 per person (based on two people sharing a room) and include four nights’ bed-and-breakfast accommodation at the chic Aroeira Lisbon Hotel and three rounds of golf on Aroeira’s two championship courses – Aroeira Pines Classic and Aroeira Challenge.
A welcome cocktail, free golf shuttles and a prize-giving dinner are also included – with a two-night stay for two people at the Aroeira Lisbon Hotel including two rounds of golf on offer to the winner of the 54-hole competition.
Designed by Frank Pennink and meandering through tall avenues of pine forest and surrounded by wildlife and nature, Aroeira Pines Classic plays to 6,650 yards and demands accuracy and placement off the tee if you’re to score well.
Opened in 2000 and designed by Donald Steel, Aroeira Challenge compliments its older sibling well and visitors will discover a course that possesses a few more thrills and spills along the way. At more than 7,000 yards from the tips, the course bares its teeth with water in play on nine holes and large, undulating greens testing the putter to the max.
Alongside the courses on the stunning Aroeira estate, the Aroeira Lisbon Hotel provides the ultimate in chic modern design, including 68 bedrooms and suites, an outdoor pool, a spa and a bar and restaurant, and offers easy access to the many golden sandy beaches in the Costa Azul region.
ORIZONTE provides golfers with the opportunity to play five of the leading courses in close proximity to Lisbon in the stunning Costa Azul, together with exceptional value for money on a wide range of accommodation options.
