A Comprehensive Guide On Campo Real Golf Course

There is no denying the fact that Portugal is one of the finest golf destinations in the world. It is home to a wide variety of golf courses that attract golf tourists year after year. Golf enthusiasts who have played a number of times on links and parkland courses set in flat landscape look for something different.

  • How true that when you expect the least your most desired wish comes true. Not a long way from the capital of Portugal, Lisbon, lays the Campo Real Golf Course. This fantastic course is set in a rolling hill terrain.

  • The literal translation of Campo Real is the Royal Meadow and true to its name, it’s one of the most beautiful courses where players will feel like kings and queens. The Campo Real Course is ideally situated in the heart of the country, not too far from the popular beaches in the region. After landing in Lisbon, you can either take a bus or hire a cab taxi and reach the golf course within half an hour.

  • The Campo Real Course is laid on a 55-hectare hilly terrain with well carved out buggy paths. The designer of the course, Donald Steel has very skillfully created the Campo Real without altering too much of the natural habitat of the sloping terrain and the wooded valleys.

  • Opened in 2005, this challenging 18-hole, par-72 course has already made a mark and is proving to be a real competition to other established courses. The uneven landscape and valley vegetation ensures that even low-handicappers have a challenging time on the course. The hilly terrain might be testing to players, but we assure the tourists that, beginners and amateurs too will have an enjoyable time on the Campo Real Golf Course.

  • Golfers visiting this course will be pleasantly surprised to see the course beginning and ending with par-5s. Players will have a tough time starting the course as the first 6 holes demand precision stroke play. The toughest and most challenging hole of the course is the sixth and the most scenic and picturesque one is the seventeenth.

  • Since the course is not too close to the sea like many of the other popular courses in Portugal, the winters are not too chilly. This allows tourists to visit the Campo Real Golf Course even during winter months. The course has excellent pro shop, clubhouse, and golf academy. The Campo Real also offers shuttle service for guests staying at the Bom Sucesso Resort, Praia Del Rey Marriott Hotel, and Evolutee Hotel in Royal Obidos.
