Commenting on Alto golf and country club
When one hears of the city “Algarve” he or she will probably first think of beautiful white sand beaches, great weather, and beautiful hotels and results. The Algarve region is actually one of the top golf destinations in the world making home to over 40 world-class and Championship golf courses. One in particular is the Alto Golf and Country Club located in the Western Algarve.
The Alto Golf and Country Club is one of the few premier golf and country club resorts in the Western Algarve. It was designed by a legend: Sir Henry Cotton. The course itself has fantastic views over the gardens with an added bonus of overlooking the Bay of Lagos in the opening nine holes and the rolling hills that can be seen from the back nine holes. Sir Henry designed this golf course keeping his philosophy in mind: provide low handicap players with a test game, giving players the enjoyment at an average level, and providing inspiration and satisfaction to beginners. Its elevated greens and winding fairways reflect this philosophy perfectly giving golfers an amazing golfing experience.
The Henry Cotton Challenge sets on the rolling slopes of the back nine holes. It is the longest Par 5 in Europe measuring at about half a mile long. To get Par you must make three accurate, long shots to avoid your ball going into the lake, find a small well-protected green, and hold the angled fairway. The course overall is great for both amateur and experienced players and is both challenging and manageable.
In addition to playing golf, this resort also offers all the conventional spoiling of a traditional country club. Tourists staying here will get to enjoy high class treatment with spa and massage services, hair and nail salons, fine dining restaurants, poolside drinks, plenty of attractions that are kid-friendly, music, entertainment, video arcades, and top-notch service.
Not only will you receive discounted rates going with the Alto Golf and Country Club but your entire family will be able to enjoy all the benefits of a relaxing vacation.
