Penha Longa Atlántico is another one of Europe’s best golf courses. Integrated within the luxury Penha Longa resort near Sintra, the 72 Atlântico course sits within a protected natural reserve overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Penha Longa’s was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, who took full advantage of the spectacular setting and designed exceptional layout. Penha Longa sits on an exposed plateau and when gusts are funneled across the mountains. The par-five 6th is a signature hole, a picture postcard green framed by a lake and a centuries-old aqueduct and castle tower.
