The original back nine holes of the Dom Pedro Millennium Course were formerly part of the 27-hole Dom Pedro Laguna Course. Refurbishment to the existing nine holes included the complete rebuilding of the some tees, some smaller greens expanded and some bunkers re-shaped, particularly for holes 8 and 9, the only ones on this loop with water hazards. Changes were made to the layout or structure of the old nine holes, but several new design features were incorporated with a view to simplifying the strategy of the course and in order to make it more golfer-friendly. The renovated 9 holes were joined together with the new 9-hole loop to offer a layout of different character, style and playing quality.
The course is particularly open, although some holes (the 3rd to the 7th) wind between pine trees and are similar to the neighbouring fairways of the Dom Pedro Old Course and Dom Pedro Pinhal. In this more wooded area, the fairways are narrower and require greater accuracy - while the rest of the course has a clear landscape enriched by lakes at the 4th, 17th and 18th holes.
The Dom Pedro Millennium Golf Course opened in 2000 and was designed by Martin Hawtree.
