The award-winning Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course was redesigned by the firm Cameron & Powell from an original by Mackenzie Ross built in 1936. The course has now been rebuilt from scratch to meet USGA specifications for greens and tees and has been transformed into a top class par 72 course, making it a potential venue for international championships, while maintaining the identity of the original design and faithfully reflecting the beauty, the qualities unique to this sport, the spirit and the distinctive flavour of the location.
The main features of the Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course include raised tees and greens, and bunkers and greens strategically sited so that perfect vision is called for to judge differences in elevation. As a result, the Vidago Palace Hotel golf course will challenge and delight even the most experienced player.
The Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course is a course of striking contrasts, all with a particular respect for the natural surroundings. The recently enlarged course includes a golf academy, a 340 m driving range, a chipping area and two putting greens.
