The Pinecliffs development is part of a major hotel / housing scheme close to the Portuguese town of Albufeira. The course is only 9 holes and relatively short, but the golf holes are all carefully laid out amongst the beautiful pine trees and cliff tops of the Algarve coast. Nigel Mansell was the first president of the club. Pinecliffs must be considered one of the most picturesque golf courses in Portugal, whilst short still tests every club in the bag. A large practice ground/academy was a dded at a later date.
( all works in connection with the Pinecliffs G.C. were undertaken either whilst working at Hawtree’s or in subsequent liaison with Hawtree Ltd.)
