Situated on the north coast of Trancoso overlooking the colorful cliffs, Terravista harmoniously combines the region’s natural contours, vegetation and landscape with a first rate golf course.
Golfers who take on Trancoso Terravista face two different golfing environments. The front nine is played amidst the Atlantic Rainforest, with temperatures, humidity and landscape characteristic of this area. The back nine, in contrast, offers dazzling views of the beach with four of its holes perched high upon the ocean cliffs.
