Golf in São Miguel
The island of São Miguel invites you to enjoy its two international-level golf courses: Batalha and Furnas.
Although you can bring your own equipment, both golf courses have equipment available for rental, as well as a golf academy, a shop, a bar and a restaurant.
Golf can be played among arum lilies, hydrangeas and cedars on rounds adapted to different levels of preference.
Golf in Terceira
Terceira Island has a single golf course, but it is where the golfing spirit is more vivid on the locals.
Terceira Golf Club inherited the course built by the Americans for the recreation of the military personnel stationed at the Lajes Air Base. Subsequent changes to the design created a stimulating course, where you can also enjoy a club house with a restaurant, a bar and a pro-shop.
