Dom Pedro’s Victoria Golf Course is the group’s flasgship venue and host of the Golf World Cup in 2005 as well as multiple Portugal Masters events on the European Tour.

The 6,651-metre par 72 course was designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer and covers some 90 hectares, including an excellent driving range and practice facility.

The course incorporates and has ensured the preservation of natural wetlands on-site, as well as the typical vegetation of carob, olive and almond trees. A significant proportion of Victoria’s acreage is occupied by lakes which form challenging hazards, as do the course’s undulating fairways and cleverly-positioned bunkers, while a number of teeing options on each hole (often as many as six) provide a challenge for players of all abilities.

Green fees here include practice balls before play, and there is a marvellous clubhouse to relax in after your round.
