Oitavos Dunes lies within the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. It is set among pine woods and reforested dunes, in an area of great natural beauty. Being a seaside golf course, the ocean view is present all ‘the time, although some of the more fantastic scenery come from the Sintra mountains and Cabo da Roca the Europe’s most western point in Europe, seen from the 9, 10, 11 & 14 holes. The layout has been carefully crafted by one of the greatest golf architects of our times, ex-president of the American Society of ‘Golf Course Architects, Arthur Hills. Hills has maintained and preserved the unique caracteristics of the land, creating a 6.303 metres, par 71 golf course. The environmental certification was done in cooperation with Audubon International, an American environmental association.The sustainability of the resources is the prior objective, and because of that the flora and fauna peculiar to the region are strictly protected, being some areas closed to people and machines. Oitavos Dunes is the 1st Golf Course in Europe and the 2nd in the Word being recognized as a Certified Signature Sanctuary - Gold. It is already set as one of the best golf courses in the World, ranked 58th by GOLF Magazine in 2015, where a non stress round of golf can be played all year round.

Oitavos Dunes became our warm-up course for our week in Portugal. Upon arrival there's a sign on the door, "ranked nr 55 in the world". That sounded promising for a warm-up! We had beer and food and the we hit the range. I love it when the range is just opposite to the first tee:) The course starts with 4 narrow treelined holes which works themselves u to a plateau where most of the other holes are played. So keep it together for four holes then you can let it rip! Some very open holes with very little rough unless you are really off line... They have a signature hole, a medium length par 3 with a "ravine" front and back of the green, pretty scenic. It's followed by another par 3! Unusual but since that hole also is a good one it works. Condition was good all over the course. If I would've ranked this course myself, I would not be able to give it a number... But I played Praia D'el Rey, Royal Obidos and West Cliffs too and it's nowhere near any of them. Arthur Hills designed it, 5 tee's from 4500 - 6400m's so there's something for everyone. Great food and nice beverages made our day. I'd say it's a lovely warmup course before driving north to some really impressive golf.
