Golf on the Azores
The Azores are perfect for playing golf. With the
temperate weather year around, the breathtaking views of sea and
mountains in every direction, even the most avid golfer will find
it difficult to keep their mind on the next stroke.
São Miguel Golf
Golf on the island of São Miguel can be enjoyed at the BATALHA golf course. The course offers 27 holes in all which can be played in different combinations to make up an 18-hole game. The course features scenic panoramas of the sea and the view of scenery through the trees is awesome. The course is located out of Ponta Delgada toward Capelas. It features a par 72 course with a driving range, two putting greens, a chipping green, a pro shop, restaurant and bar. The course was engineered by Cameron & Powell in 1996. Course record set on 2001 on the yellow tees is 66 and a 67 in 2002 on the white tees. Several hotels such as Hotel Talisma offer golf packages.
FURNAS Golf Course, or the Furnas course, also on the island of São Miguel, was originally designed by Mackenzie Ross, famous Scottish architect, as a 9-hole course in 1939 and skillfully extended to 18 holes in 1986 by Cameron Powell so that it appears to be one unified course. It's located in the Furnas valley about 40 miles from Ponta Delgada with its famous mineral hot springs and lush tropical vegetation. Lake Furnas is nearby. The views from the Japanese Cedar tree-lined course are awesome. Most of the greens are slightly elevated which makes this course a bit more challenging than some. The course record stands from a 1997 round played with a score of 66. It's a par 72 course with a restaurant and bar, pro shop, chipping green and 2 putting greens in addition to the driving range. Golf packages are available at the Caloura Hotel and Terra Nostra Hotel
