Portugal & Spain Serve Up a Banquet of Great Golf

written by | Posted on May 1st, 2011

PLAYING: The Montecastillo Golf Club layout is ranked among the top five in Spain, and has hosted the European Tour’s Volvo Masters. Its 18-hole, par 72 course, a Jack Nicklaus grand design, measures 7,060 yards from the tips, and golfers say that its closing trio of holes provide as an impressive a finish as can be found in Europe. They also agree that well played, this course delivers a memorable round of golf, where raised tees on each hole insures that even the high handicapper has a good chance of enjoying such a big course. On site is a putting green, practice course and golf academy.
