Hot shot golf courses from Orizonte – Quinta do Peru has further enhanced its reputation as one of the top golfing venues in Portugal after being singled out for special recognition in the ‘Leading Courses’ Golfers’ Choice rankings for the second year running.
The highly acclaimed 18-hole venue, part of the Orizonte – Lisbon Golf group, received a ‘recommended’ certificate from top Dutch website Leadingcourses.com for 2018 to ensure it maintained its status from last year.
The Rocky Roquemore-designed Lisbon layout – just a 30-minute drive from the capital – is one of seven courses run through management group Orizonte, and was already ranked 17th in Portugal on the renowned Top 100 Golf Courses website.
Leadingcourses.com, which was launched in 2007 and now boasts a new app for iOS and Android, is the largest golf course review site in Europe and is available in nine languages, comparing 25,000 golf courses in 139 countries with more than 350,000-plus golfers leaving reviews every month.
Orizonte commercial director José Maria Cazal Ribeiro said: “This is yet more good news with Quinta do Peru being recognised as one of the best courses, not only in the Lisbon region, but in Portugal as a whole.
“Quinta do Peru has long been a favourite among visitors from all across Europe and that popularity is something that continues to improve all the time, as bookings are again up for 2018. But Quinta is one of only seven of our courses we have. All of them are around the Lisbon area and all of them are totally different, yet challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all standards, and that is only going to get better over the coming months as we continue to make improvements to the facilities on and off the courses.
“We also have a new four-star hotel coming later this year to Aroeira where we already have two excellent courses.”
