Golf Courses

The breathtaking landscape is the perfect setting for unforgettable rounds of golf in an environment of pure nature of the Azores. Atlantivacations invites you to enjoy our two golf courses Batalha and Furnas, no rush, in a green environment, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, between Europe and North America, on the island of São Miguel in the Azores in Portugal.

BATALHA GOLF COURSE

This course, designed by Cameron Powell in 1986, offers 27 holes of golf laid out over 120 há, with its magnificent setting, nestling on the skirts of the surrounding hills and with sweeping views to the ocean – has large flowing greens, wide and generous fairways and sinuously contoured bunkers.

It is difficult to select the best hole – they are all in some ways exceptional – but there is a very special sensation to be felt when standing on the soaring tee B 6.

Batalha Golf Course is situated on the north coast of São Miguel island, just 10 minutes from the center of the capital Ponta Delgada.

Practice Facilities:

  • Driving Range for up to 30 players
  • 2 Practice Putting Greens (2000m2)
  • Chipping and Pitching Area
FURNAS GOLF COURSE

A spectacular golf course set in the midst of a powerful volcanic landscape with luxuriant tropical vegetation. This is a truly incredible golfing experience.

The first nine holes of the course were laid out by MacKenzie Ross in 1936, and represent the first golf course on the island. The holes meander through a landscape of spectacular natural beauty that leaves you speechless. Brilliantly extended in 1992 by golf course architects Bob Cameron and Chris Powell, the course now boasts 18 magnificent golf holes and warm British style clubhouse.

We are sure that MacKenzie Ross would be delighted to see that new nine-hole are so in harmony with the spirit and style of the original that it is becoming increasingly difficult to spot the join.

The Course itself set amid the stand of majestic Japanese cedars and with fiendishly contoured greens is quite gentle in nature but is, without doubt, a genuine test of skill and finesse.

Furnas Golf Course is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of São Miguel Islands, set above Furnas Valley and close to beautiful crater Furnas lake, with its famous hot springs and Terra Nostra Gardens. It’s 25 minutes from Ponta Delgada, 15 minutes from Caloura, Água d’Alto.

Practice Facilities:

  • 2 putting greens, Practice Tee and Chipping Area
  • Clubs, Golf Cart, Trolleys available for rent
