Running along the colorful cliffs of Trancoso the 18 hole Terravista golf course offers up one of the finest golfing experiences in South America. The course was designed by renowned architect Dan Blankenship. It has been referred to by Golf Digest as one of the 8 Pebble Beaches of the world.
The front nine holes takes you deep into Atlantic rainforest and includes several lake holes with sand bunkers and jungle boundaries that even the best of golfers will respect. The back nine, in contrast, offers dazzling views of the beach with many of its holes perched high upon the ocean cliffs. Holes 12-15 run along cliffs and offer breathtaking shots as your ball navigates over cliff and sea. The signature 17th hole provides a dramatic golf scape as your second shot descends to a green edged with bunkers and Atlantic rainforest far below. Nestled on the hillside overlooking this breathtaking hole and the 18th fairway you will find Villa Golf, our VERY SPECIAL four bedroom golf villa.
Yes…for the beginner there is lots of fun as well. Move your ball a bit closer (front tee) and the course turns into a nature trail of meandering coble stone trails and paths that provide breathtaking views of jungle, sea and sand right here in Trancoso.
Want to improve your game….the driving range has nine greens each framed by white sand bunkers and carefully marked for distance. The nine hole putting green and chipping area ensure that no shot goes untested. A teaching pro offers both individual and group lessons. Guests staying at the Villas and Villa Golf are entitled to special discounts on green fees and golf carts.
