History

About University

A spectacular golf course set in the midst of a powerful volcanic landscape with luxuriant tropical vegetation. This is a truly incredible golfing experience.

The first nine holes of the course were laid out by MacKenzie Ross in 1936, and represent the first golf course on the island. The holes meander through a landscape of spectacular natural beauty that leaves you speechless. Brilliantly extended in 1992 by golf course architects Bob Cameron and Chris Powell, the course now boasts 18 magnificent golf holes and warm British style clubhouse.

We are sure that MacKenzie Ross would be delighted to see that new nine hole are so in harmony with the spirit and style of the original that it is becoming increasingly difficult tospot the join.

The Course itself set amid stand of magestic japanese cedars and with friendishly contoured greens is quite gentle in nature but is without doubt a genuine test of skill and finesse.

Furnas Golf Course is situated in one of the most beautiful part of São Miguel Islands, set above Furnas Valley and close to beautiful crater furnas lake, with it's famous hot springs and Terra Nostra Gardens. It's 25 minutes from Ponta Delgada, 15 minutes from Caloura, Água d'Alto.
