Boavista Golf opened on 1st January 2002. The impressive 18 Hole Championship golf course has been designed by Howard Swan MSc, past president of The European Institute of Golf Course Architects. His philosophy - "to create a course as if it has always been there" has been sensitively applied at Boavista preserving integrating and harmonizing with the area's natural terrain. With two distinctive sections the course offers a variety of holes commencing with the welcoming first hole, a meandering downhill par-4 bordered by beautiful sub-tropical landscaping leading to harmoniously designed properties. The signature hole on the outward nine is the stunning par-4 7th hole set against a glorious backdrop of the Atlantic ocean with exhilarating panoramic views extending from Praia da Luz round to with the hills at Monchique creating a spectacular backdrop.
