Aroeira Trophy to shine spotlight on golf in Lisbon this spring

Mark McGowan

Aroeira Challenge

One of the game’s most sought-after destinations are inviting players to come and take part in this spring’s 2023 Aroeira Trophy in Lisbon, Portugal.

Situated just 25km to the south of the Portuguese capital, Aroeira Golf Resort is rated among the best golf venues in Europe and is blessed with two 18-hole championship courses as well as the chic Aroeira Lisbon Hotel.

Taking place from May 24-28, players will play three rounds of golf on Aroeira’s two acclaimed courses – Aroeira Pines Classic, a two-time host of the Portuguese Open, and Aroeira Challenge – with a two-night stay for two people at the resort including two rounds of golf on offer to the overall winner of the 54-hole net stableford competition.

At a cost of €517 per person, based on two people sharing a room, this also includes four nights’ bed-and-breakfast accommodation at the Aroeira Lisbon Hotel, with a welcome cocktail, free golf shuttles and a prize-giving dinner also included. Competitors will also have the chance to relax and unwind after golf on May 26 by taking advantage of the free yoga, Pilates and wine-tasting sessions that are available.

To enter, golfers must provide a handicap certificate of 36 or below able to take part.

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 complements 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.
