Achada das Furnas golf course is situated on São Miguel Island, «the green island», near the grottoes or furnas, and the lake with that name, places which show the volcanic origin of these islands.|A new nine-hole course designed by Cameron Powell has been added to the previous one. It maintains the character given by Mackenzie Ross, so much so that it is impossible to say nowadays which two nines was designed first. The separation of the fairways is almost always made by cryptomerias, large trees that, in our opinion, are the most suitable for the purpose. The course has all the characteristics of a Scottish one and it is the most British of all Portuguese golf courses. Practically every fairway is undulated, requiring all types of shots, and the greens are excellent and full of borrows.
A very interesting experience. There is a sign in the clubhouse noting that Furnas was rated by Golf Digest as the #2 course in Portugal in 2014. Wow. Ok maybe #2 in the Azores. Clubhouse, very bare bones emphasis on very. Reception good. Pro is a nice guy. Buggy had no brake. Fairways furry. Greens stimp at about 2. Hole # 15 doubles as the range so folks on the range are supposed to let you play through… we had a fellow who was “training” join us on 15. Gave me a good bunker tip “FINISH”. . Other players cut in and out at will. A very interesting experience. Fun in an odd way. Its a muni but you are on an island in the mid Atlantic. Temper your expectation and it can be quite fun!
Nice Team, Great Golfcourse! Thanks
Nice but difficult course. Helpfull staff and good service.
Everyone was very welcoming. The course was very wet and would be closed where we are from in Canada. Staff were very welcoming. Weather can’t be controlled ????
In principle its a 9. For the many carts putting pressure on golfers walking it is a 7.
Unfortunately the golf course during our time was quite wet and cold. The winter is probably not the time to visit an otherwise lovely golf course. The climate in Furnas leads to frequent rain. The staff at the facility were kind. The golf trolleys were not a great design for using with carrying bags. A good course to walk.
Great course. One of the best I've ever played. Poor clubhouse, very kind people.
