Close to Setubal, 45 min. drive South of Lisbon, near the Palmela Castle, the Montado golf course is surrounded by famous muscatel vineyards that were planted more than a century ago. Montado golf course was designed by the Portuguese Duarte Sottomayor, who began his career working with the famous Robert Trent Jones.
The Montado golf course, in south of Lisbon, unfolds beneath old oaks and younger olive trees, chestnut and pines, planted when the course was first built, whilst around it wind creeks and natural lakes.
In operation since 1992, the golf course of Montado needed an impulse to reach the level of quality it deserves. In 2005, extensive remodelling works were initiated under the direction of well-known Portuguese Architect Jorge Santana da Silva. The whole layout of Montado golf course has been redesigned by creating new tees and greens, which are currently in excellent conditions.
The highlight of Montado Golf Course is without doubt the hole 18 where it plays for a green located on an island.
The Montado Hotel & Golf Resort is located in the Costa Azul region in Algeruz (Palmela), at 15 minutes from the center of Setubal, and 10 minutes from Palmela. It’s also at 30 minutes travel from Lisbon International Airport and less than 3 hours flight from major European capitals.
