The back 9 is slightly more challenging because of the aforementioned undulating features but also because the valley is mountainsided, creating a kind of funnel for the wind to blow through.The 18th at Morgado is a superb finishing hole, with an elevated tee looking down at the beautiful view of the wavy fairway, sheltered by bunkers, and Clubhouse in the distance. A true signature hole and a great way to end your round. By par or by birdie, you are sure to want to come back! A round on this championship course is also a great chance to appreciate the surrounding nature, of this side of the Algarve since it is an estate known for the richness of its fauna and flora.
