Portugal to Receive New Golf Resort


Faldo Design is set to create the company’s third golf destination in Portugal (following 18-hole assignments in the Algarve and Madeira) and its first in the Alentejo region.

Featuring an 18-hole Championship course, a nine-hole resort course and a nine-hole, par-three course, the project at Monte Rocha will have three diverse golfing experiences with varying degrees of challenge. Set on 500 hectares of rolling countryside, the courses will form the centerpiece of an integrated golf resort project that will include state of the art practice facilities and luxury accommodation including a five-star spa hotel.

The company’s project at Monte Rocha joins a growing portfolio of courses. Faldo Design recently announced a project at the Lavasa Hill Station in India; courses are set to open in Ireland (Lough Erne Golf Resort in Co. Fermanagh), Montana (The Wilderness Club) and the Dominican Republic (the Faldo Legacy Course at Roco Ki); and new projects are in the pipeline in Mexico, South Africa and Vietnam.
