• Overview

    Barney is your host for the week, and you will play the five best courses in the area, and benefit from a morning golf clinic before each of the rounds. As I am sure many clients already know, Barney is one of the most distinguished coaches in the Country, and all will benefit from some time spent with him. He is a super tour host too, which all bodes well for a very memorable week.

    The accommodation for the week is the 4-star Sana Sesimbra Hotel, with its imposing setting overlooking the sea.


    Located on the beachfront, in the heart of the Sesimbra village, the Sana Sesimbra Hotel is so close to the sea that it won’t take you more than 30 seconds to reach the waves of the Califórnia Beach.

    This privileged location is one of the Sana Sesimbra’s main strengths, turning out to be the best destination for anyone seeking the warmth of the sun and the freshness of the beach, but also a backdrop of stunning nature just 30 minutes from Lisbon. With the Arrábida Mountains serving as natural frame, we will find a wide gastronomic offer in Sesimbra, with the best fresh fish from this side of the Atlantic. The good food and wine, the proximity to the golf courses and the very unique culture of this picturesque village, will provide the foundation to a super week.

    Just to make the hotel even more unique, it has a rooftop swimming pool, jacuzzi, bar and sky lounge that provide a fantastic panoramic view of the mountains and the sea!


    Aroeira I Golf Club

    The 18-hole Aroeira I Golf  Course was designed by architect Frank Pennink and opened in 1973. The course is regarded as one of the best in Portugal, and it hosted the Portuguese Open in 1996 and 1997 and a number of Ladies Opens.

    Ribagolfe I Golf Club

    The Ribagolfe I Golf Course is an 18-hole course located to the east of Lisbon near to Coruche. The layout is designed as a championship course, with the fairways running through typical Alentejo farmland with cork trees scattered along each hole and around the greens. The holes of the Ribagolfe I course run over undulating ground with many water hazards and bunkers to challenge even the very experienced golfers.

    Quinta do Peru Golf Club

    Quinta do Peru Golf course is located in the Azeitão region between the castles of Sesimbra and Setubal, which is well known for its palaces, wines and cheeses. With the Arrabida mountains as its backdrop, the Quinta do Peru course was rated in the top 100 courses by Golf World magazine (2014), and offers players a pleasant, yet challenging game.

    Ribagolfe II Golf Club

    The Ribagolfe II Golf Course is not surprisingly the sister course to Ribagolfe I. The course is set in typical Alentejo farmland with cork trees lining the fairways and also around the greens. The Ribagolfe II course is unlike its bigger sister as it is mainly designed for the benefit of its Members, but visitors are allowed to play. The holes are less of challenge except for hole number 6, a Par 4 of 330 metres which demands accuracy as water hazards lie both to the right and left sides.

    Aroeira II Golf Club

    Aroeira’s second 18-hole golf course, Aroeira II was opened in April 2000. Its architect, Donald Steel, took care to comply with European Tour recommendations and designed a course with future Portuguese Opens in mind. Its 18 long greens wind round five lakes and the various tees for each hole mean it can be played by players of all levels. The course was also used as the ‘Qualifying School of Ladies European Tour’ for a number of years, as well as hosting several Portuguese Ladies Opens.
