Aroeira 1 is located to the south of the capital and is between Lisbon and Setubal. It is easy to reach by car due to the motorway going south and head west to Costa da Caparica. Aroeira 1 is considered by Portuguese golf society as being one of the courses on which ‘to be seen playing’. As one of the better courses in Portugal, the Aroeira 1 golf course has hosted the Portugal Open in 1996 and 1997, and also the Ladies Open and the Qualifying School of the Ladies European Tour. The fairways either run through pine trees or open ground.
From the tee the first hole of 485 metes and a Par 5 demands a shot to carry a lake. Two holes that are worth a special mention on Aroeira 1 are the eleventh and the fourteenth. Played through tall avenues of pine forest and surrounded by wildlife and nature, the golf course plays to 6,650 yards and demands
accuracy and placement off the tee in order to maximise opportunities to hit the target greens in regulation.
