Terceira Golf Course
Golf in Terceira - Golf Club of the Island of Terceira

It was inaugurated in 1954, 13 km from the town of Angra do Heroísmo and 10 Km from Praia da Vitória.

Some 350 metres above sea level, the Course is in the countryside, with smooth slopes, tall trees, six artificial lakes and ravines. The great number of flowers, mainly azaleas and hortensias, lend great beauty and colour to a typically Azorean countryside.

Hole 18, with a par 3, is considered the most difficult due to its steeply sloping green protected by a lake.

Before this, however, golfers, whatever their level, will have already been presented with a series of different challenges, such as that of hole 10 (par 4 that crosses a ravine and has water just in front) and hole 17, a long par 5, where again water makes play difficult.

The Golf Club of the Island of Terceira has a driving range, storage, a putting green, a snack-bar/restaurant, a pro-shop and tennis courts.

Walking Routes in Terceira

Some routes have a cultural flavour, such as those that can be followed in Angra do Heroísmo, a World Heritage city, or in the city of Praia da Vitória, both of which offer the chance to discover the history of this island, its monuments and its people.

Other routes are orientated to those who like to discover unique landscapes, with magnificent recesses and a sense of peace, pure air and almost pristine natural environment, characteristic of all of the islands in the Azores.

The routes are publicised, and information on the features of each one is available.
