Boavista Golf Resort opened in January 2002 and quickly became established as one of the Western Algarve’s premier resorts. With an exceptional 18-hole championship course it is one of the Algarve’s best maintained courses, bordered by properties all designed to harmonize with the given natural environment. Breathtaking views, spectacular scenery and the crystal clear Atlantic Ocean, visible from most holes, all combine to make the course a delight to the eye. The course has been desigend by Howard Swan. With two different sections the course offers a great variety of holes commencing with the welcoming first hole, a meandering downhill par-4, bordered by beautiful sub-tropical landscaping leading to harmoniously designed properties. The front nine, in general, climb to the highest point of the resort, where a pause at the eighth tee offers a fantastic panoramic views. Subsequent holes descend to an area where water features, streams, lakes and arched bridges, reminiscent of landscaped gardens abound.
