Not too far from the Douro wine valley

Amarante golf course is located at just 45 minutes from Porto and one hour from the Douro valley, north of Portugal. Surrounded by unspoiled nature and with breathtaking views over the Douro wine region, the Amarante golf course is a good option for those who seek quietness and peace. Located in an extraordinary landscape with beautiful sceneries to the Marão mountain, one of the highest in Portugal, the Amarante golf course also includes several waterfalls.

Hilly & narrow but gentle to play

When driving off from the tees, the Amarante golf course demands particularly precise shots because of its narrow design. The bunkers protecting greens and lakes are decisive ingredients of the game at holes number 3, 8, 12 and 17. A good distance judgement and green reading is also required because of the elevated, undulated and fast greens, one of the Amarante golf course trademarks. Despite being a hilly golf course rising 600 metres above sea level, Amarante Golf course offers a gentle game. This is thanks to architect Jorge Santana da Silva, who has been able to limit the climbs to a minimum.

Amarante' signature hole

The signature hole of Amarante golf course, near Porto, is hole Nr. 4, a par 4 of just 306 metres, but 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.
