3 beautiful golf courses 
      on the Azores.



                                 On the Azores there are 3 nice golf courses. 2 courses on Sao Miguel, and 1 on Terceira, all par 72. 
                                 I have played all 3 courses several times, and will give my personal opinion about the courses. During July and 
                                August there are no rush on any of the courses at any day/any time of the day. Not even on week-ends.

                                Green fee is 80 . ( 2010 price for 18 holes.)

Furnas Golf   




                           The course is situated 2-3 km. from Furnas town. Furnas Golf Club and Batalha Golf Club has the same 
                           management. But Furnas course is absolutely the most beautiful and best maintained course on the Azores. It is
                           a pleasure to play this course, and a challenge for most players. Many fairways are very undulated. Most 
                           greens are slightly elevated from fairway.

                           Bunkers don't have sand traps as you might know it, but a very rough kind of gravel with many pebbles.













Batalha Golf Club    





                               The Batalha-course is situated 8-10 km. from Ponta Delgada. Drive from Ponta Delgada towards Faja 
                               de Cima village. About 700 meters on the other side of the village turn right at the sign " CAMPO DE 
                               GOLFO ". The course is then situated 2-3 km. ahead on your right hand. The Clubhouse is huge and con-
                               tains a nice restaurant and Pro shop.

                               This 27 holes course is fairly maintained, even without watering in the dry season.  The course has several
                               holes with breathtaking beautiful views. Clubs can be rented.








Terceira Golf Club. 




                                The course is situated 12-15 minutes drive from Lajes Airport close to Praia da Vitoria. Not that 
                                demanding  to play with very wide fairways and few bunkers.

                                The course is not very well maintained. You will see a lot of greenkeepers on the course, but it doesn't
                                mean that the course is in a good condition.
