To help celebrate its 15th anniversary, the resort on Portugal’s Silver Coast has completed an extensive three-year investment programme in its golf, hotel and lifestyle amenities – helping to further elevate its status among Europe’s premier destinations.

And the level of investment has been matched on the golfing side, with the resort having carried out a number of improvements including a major renovation of its golf academy to complement the five-star golf experience that members and guests can enjoy on its two 18-hole courses, Praia D’El Rey and West Cliffs Golf Links – named as the ‘World’s Best New Course’ at the 2017 World Golf Awards.
