Here, by the sea or in the mountains, amidst the breathtaking scenery and perfect climate, are 15 of the world's highest-rated courses. Just 17 kilometers south of Porto you will find the magnificent 18-hole Oporto Golf Club in Espinho. And only 20 minutes away from the airport lies Estela Golf Club, a welcoming summer resort that opened in 1989.
