The 8 times consecutive host of the European Seniors Tour Qualifying final, Vale da Pinta is rightly respected not just for its playability and challenginglayout but for outstanding levels of beauty and enjoyment. Designed by the famous American golf course architect Ronald Fream and inaugurated in 1992 Vale da Pinta has earned its place as one of the best designed courses in Europe. Strategically placed bunkers protect the greens with the two ornamental lakes influencing the play at 4 different holes around the course. The dogleg trajectory for all the par 4 and 5 holes needs skillful driving. The size of the greens perfectly match the length of the approach shot. Experienced golfers will get genuine excitement and have a memorable experience. The rolling terrain is dotted with almond, fig and olive trees some more than 600 years old, and a main feature is the 1200 year old olive tree.
