Fitness, tennis and Golf course...

Pine Cliffs Golf Course

The immaculate Pine Cliffs Golf Course lies perched 200 feet above the golden sands and blue water of the Atlantic Ocean. The location of the resort is unique. It extends across 168 acres of naturally beautiful land set above a stunning cliff top, beneath lies an expanse of golden sand beach and the deep blue water of the Atlantic Ocean. The dark red of the sandstone cliffs contrasts sharply with the immaculate green of the golf course above and the sparkling blue ocean below. This is one of the country’s most original golf courses, built in a pinewood setting, with tree lined fairways running parallel along the Atlantic Ocean, giving it's guests breathtaking views along the Algarvian coastline. Architect Martin Hawtree’s main concern was to keep the natural surroundings as it was before the course was built. The jewel of this perfectly kept course is the Par 3 sixth hole. The championship tee, known as the Devil’s Parlour, is built over a ravine that requires a 197 metre carrying shot over the cliffs to a deep but narrow green.

Annabel Croft Tennis Academy

The Tennis Centre, located on the beautifully landscaped grounds of Pine Cliffs Resort, features five floodlit courts - two clay and three all-weather hard courts - ideal for day or night time play. The premier tennis courts are managed by Annabel Croft Tennis Academy* along with the resort’s friendly staff who are happy to arrange matches for solo players as well as fun clinics to guests of all ages and skill levels.
