The Lisbon Sports Club is located in Serra da Carregueira, Belas, circa 20 kilometres from Lisbon.  The 18 hole circuit is one of the most original in the whole country: it is nested in a valley, making the most of the plains situated on the north side of the mountains.  Since 1992 the LSC  it prides itself on 18 holes, Par 69, over 5,261 meters, with an extremely rich and beautiful forest biodiversity and a striking brook which runs throughout the entire course.

The itinerary’s layout is that of a typical Scottish golf course.  Inaugurated in 1964, with nine holes designed by Hawtree & Sons, it was initially extended to 14 and finally to 18.  The holes are characterized by an assortment of different designs, which implies a range of different and interesting game possibilities.  Some holes encompass criss-crossing paths, allowing golfers to intermingle along the course.

The highlights of the LSC course are definitely holes number 1, 3 and 18, which stand out thanks to their natural beauty, unique layouts and relative difficulty. 

The first hole is a Par 3 and it is 169 meters long.  It showcases the whole LSC course, with tees about 10 metres higher than the green, which in turn is surrounded by four bunkers.  The entire right side of the hole is escorted by a brook.

Hole 3 is also a Par 3, 176 meters long, and considered by many one of the most beautiful golf course holes in Portugal.  It also features elevated tees and a brook in the middle of the fairway which follows the right side of the green.  The vegetation is stunning, generating a unique layout.
