Program

Golf and Yoga Overview

Golf coaching will take place at Santo Antonio Golf Course between Sagres and Lagos, right on the doorsteps of our beautiful and comfortable Algarve Villa with pool, which is ideally located beside the fairway of the 18th hole and overlooks the rolling fairways and greens of one of the most popular and challenging courses in the Algarve.

Our qualified PGA Golf Professional will explain, teach and demonstrate skills to help you learn the basic fundamentals of the game or to further improve your golf skills. Lessons will take place on the driving range, practice area, or putting green as part of a 9 or 18-hole playing lesson. Karma Surf Retreat offers the perfect tuition package for your ability. Golf equipment will be provided or you are welcome to bring your own. Upgrades are available to all packages and include additional lessons on-course playing lessons and extra rounds.

Startup - Introductory/Beginner Course

This package consists of 5 days of learning how to play golf. Each of the first four days will take place at the golf academy, short game practice ground, or on one of the 4 putting greens at the resort. On the fifth day, the week will conclude with a 9-hole on-course playing lesson with the professional.

The golf coaching packages at Karma Surf Retreat are the perfect way to achieve great results in a short space of time and are suitable for golfers of all levels. Each coaching package is unique; it is tailored specifically to each golfer because no two golfers or golf swings are the same. Whether you’re a complete beginner wishing to learn the basic golf Principles or an advanced player who wants to improve their skills there is a perfect Karma golf coaching package for you.

Golf Course

Framed by a valley that meanders through the course creating some undulating fairways, the Golf Santo Antonio course at Parque da Floresta is an impressive arena that has already been the stage for the prestigious Europro Tour. An undulating course with some sloping fairways, particularly on the front nine. Small well-bunkered greens, many near lakes on the back nine, require a good degree of accuracy. The course is perfectly integrated into the landscape.

To be played with accurate precision. The 1st hole of Santo Antonio Golf Course, 306 meters for a Par 4, presents a demanding tee shot to commence the round, for those intending to reach its green in just two shots.

Hole 5 is a Par 3 over just 112 meters, although short, it is imperative to hit the green as there are sharp slopes on all sides, making par difficult if the green is missed. The par 5 9th ranks among the toughest stroke-index 1 holes ever designed. At 490 meters, the third shot is steeply uphill and over a ravine.

A fascinating diversity

On the second nine of Golf Santo Antonio, the highlight is hole 11 a green protected by water and is immediately followed by a par 5 that leads up the “Valley of the Wells” to another well-protected green. Having played along the “Lost Valley” of the par 4 14th, with its spectacular views of the village of Figueira and the sea, you are faced with the dramatic tee shot of the par 3 15th. Here, on the tee, players are presented with an imposing view of a large, picturesque lake that has to be carried in order to reach the wide, but shallow, green.

Another notable hole of the Golf Santo Antonio course is number 18, a fabulous finishing hole, placed right beneath the Clubhouse. The line is straight over the large pine tree setting up the approach to the elevated amphitheater green where all your golf buddies are sure to be watching. Nothing like a little pressure at the finish!

The Clubhouse of Santo Antonio Golf Course is typically Portuguese and provides spectacular panoramic views over mountains and sea, and also a general view over much of the course.
