The Rolex - World’s Top 1000 Golf Courses

September 2012

Onyria Palmares is new entry in Rolex World’s Top 1000 Golf Courses

Onyria Palmares Beach & Golf Resort is one of only two Portuguese new entries in the second edition of the Rolex World’s Top 1000 Golf Courses.
In the first edition, published in 2010, Portugal had 10 courses rated in the top 1,000, but that total has dropped to just nine in the 2012 version, published by D’Algue Selection. Therefore the recently redesigned layout by Robert Trent Jones Jr. can consider itself in something of an elite group.

It was rated at 80 out of a possible 100, and, given that only six European courses – and none on the continental mainland – attained the highest rating possible, the achievement of merely being included in a ‘world’s best’ can be seen in its true light. There are around 32,000 golf courses around the world, and a team of 200 independent, qualified inspectors, across the world, have reviewed the courses within their area for the 2012 version of the guide. The balance of the guide remains largely unchanged with a little over a third of the courses listed found in the United States, while the great old courses of the British Isles, together with mainland Europe, forms the next largest group. In all there has been a turnover of a little more than 10 per cent, with 107 new entries of which 35 are to be found in the USA.
