Just 45 minutes from Porto and one hour from the Douro valley, surrounded by unspoiled nature and with breathtaking views, Amarante Golf Course is, for sure, the best option for those who seek, further to challenging golf, the unique views and wines from the Douro wine region. Located in an extraordinary landscape the Amarante golf course also includes several waterfalls. Hilly & narrow but gentle to play: When driving off from the tees at the start of the holes, the Amarante golf course demands particularly precise shots because of its narrow design, and because of the bunkers protecting greens and lakes, which are decisive ingredients of the game at holes number 3, 8, 12 and 17. Despite being a hilly golf course rising 600 metres above sea level, most of the 18 holes of Amarante Golf offer a gentle game, because the architect, Jorge Santana da Silva has been able to limit the climbs to a minimum. Amarante' signature hole: Hole number 4 of Amarante golf course must be made mention of, being a par 4 for just 306 metres, but nevertheless offering a considerable challenge. Its approach shot must be made onto a green raised 10 metres above the fairway which measures just twenty metres wide and seven metres long. The best players can hope for a birdie if they perform well on the par 5 holes. Points of Interest:Amarante Golf Course is near the famous Relais & Chateaux Casa da Calçada and the famous Largo do Paço Michelin star restaurant.

If you visit Portugal for a golfholiday, this course should be on your list, a beautifull course with great vieuws and nice people, for dinner you can take the restaurant, between hole 9 and 10.

We played here twice. The first time was a huge surprise as the first hole is a par 5 which goes steeply downhill with lots of blind shots. There are other holes which have blind shots which can make it a trap for losing balls. Playing the second time helped as we knew what to expect and so we enjoyed... More

Walked this course carrying clubs, maybe that was a mistake because you needed to be a mountain goat. Very wet underfoot so never really benefited from the slopes (or suffered from them either) I'd like to play this place dry but €40 is a bit expensive

A very good day. A very good experience. This summer was dry and that type of weather was not good to the course. But at nice and interesting golf course and a very good experience in total. Serviceminded staf and a very good restaurant.

The course is challenging and interesting. Unfortunately the maintenence, especially around the greens, was below standard. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Warm and welcoming staff - from start to finish the staff in all parts of the course were an absolute delight to deal with. The course is challenging and interesting, without being too difficult for high handicappers. Course directions from greens to the next tee were not always present, and some of the golf buggies were in urgent need of... More

As the golf course was not too busy during the week it was very relaxing. We also would like to recommend the excellent restaurant at very reasonable prices.

I organised twelve cricketers and their wives on a trip to Oporto to play cricket during the last week of May 2014. We travelled to the Douro Valley and visited Churchill's Quinta, and then stayed in Amarante after the visit. We had reserved tees at Amarante golf club for four groups to play an internal team tournament, and we were... More
