QuintadeCimaCourse show it self very competitive with dog-legs to the right and to the left and greens well protected by sand hazards and lakes. A stream with dams and permanent flowing water crosses several holes. Since there will be no real estate construction on the site, the CimaCourse is indeed a paradise to those golfers who love to be always in contact with nature. In one of the Driving Ranges, with generous dimensions and built in the south/north direction, when hitting from the northern tees, one may appreciate a magnificent view of the mountains as well as of the Ocean. But from any part of the course, both the sea and the Algarve an mountains are a delight to anyone's eyes. On the other Driving Range, designed to practice with irons, there is the Robinson Golf Academy.
