Boavista offers two distinct parts – the Resort Section (the 1st to the 3rd and the 13th to the 18th) and the Country Section (the 4th to the 12th) – which provide a variety of attractive and interesting holes. From the first tee shot to the last putt, the course offers an enjoyable range of very individual golf holes which offer varying challenges for all levels of golfer. The par 3’s are particularly strong and no golfer who has played over the ravine at the 194 metre 6th will ever forget the experience. From holes 13 to 17, water features, which form part of the irrigation system, have been added and they provide a safe haven for the wildfowl which now abounds in the area.

Breathtaking views, spectacular scenery and the crystal clear Atlantic Ocean, which is visible from most holes, all combine to make this course a delight for the golfer and visitor alike.

Leitão & Irmão Jewelers

With its origins in the city of Porto in the late eighteenth century, Casa Leitão & Irmão became the byword for top quality jewellery on being appointed Goldsmiths to the Imperial House of Brazil by Pedro II, Emperor of Brazil, in 1873.  They were also appointed as Jewellers to the Portuguese Crown by Luís I, King of Portugal, in 1887.

The title of Jewellers to the Crown led Casa Leitão to move from Porto to Lisbon in order to be near the Royal Court, where it set up a “modern” goldsmithery. It is still in operation to this day.

With shops in Lisbon and Cascais – Chiado, Bairro Alto and Casino Estoril Gardens – Casa Leitão represents modernity, character and quality in jewellery, using traditional production processes combined with the most up-to-date design and manufacturing techniques.

Casa Leitão is also noted for the manufacture of tailor-made, personalized pieces, including engagement rings, jewellery, cutlery, tableware and other articles, as well as their maintenance and restoration.

These services, carried out by the workshop’s team of professionals, whose knowledge is handed down from generation to generation each with their own character, are the distinguishing characteristic of Casa Leitão.
