Review for Penha Longa (Atlântico)

Review:

Just returned from a 4 day "all you can golf" stay at the Penha Longa resort. This little hilly course makes for a lot of fun. Little rough, stunning par 3s, reachable par 5's and and with risk reward par 4s, shot shaping.

Some of the bunkers were under reconstruction and the greens were ill with something that looked earely like Snow Mold(which I'm sure it wasn't).

It's a very playable and fun course that can setup completely different from day to day. Due to plantation and various teeboxes, some teeshots can be a dogleg left one day and dogleg right the other. I may sound "mickey mouse" but it isn't.

Course condition was a letdown - especially greens. Can't imagine the fun I'd have here if in immaculate condition though. Really liked the design, although a liiittle short.

Note: Range is a somewhat narrow uphill thing with a prevailing Atlantic wind from the left. Not fantastic if you're here to practice. (unless you're a lefty)
