Vilamoura - Millennium Golf Course   

Previous Next

Golf architects Hawtree & Sons were contracted to plan the modification and design work which has culminated in the creation of the new, exciting 18-hole Millennium Golf Course, which was Opened in May 2000. This is an extremely attractive, quality course. A Perfect blend of rolling parkland; and umbrella pines. It is situated adjacant to the Laguna golf course with which it shares a spacous, modern clubhouse.

The front nine holes are completely new and are a perfect complement to the extensively reshaped original ' North loop of the Old Laguna layout. The refurbishment to the existing nine holes commenced in May 1999 and included the complete rebuilding of the tees, greens and bunkers.

Changes were made to the layout of the old nine holes, but several new design features were incorporated with a view to simplifying the strategy of the course and in order to make it more golfer-friendly. This applies especially to holes 8 and 9, the only ones on this loop with water hazards. Also, many of the bunkers have been re-shaped and the smaller greens expanded.

The par 3's - third and sixth - look very well and are very enjoyable to play. The sixth offers more of a test. There is a lake on the left and selecting the correct club is very important. The 18th hole is now extented to a par-5 and a lovely hole to finish your round of golf.
