  • 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.

    Imho the best overall golf experience I have had in Portugal to date. An incredible golf course, and with friendly - and beautiful - pro shop staff who serve graciously alongside the very professional and personal club manager.

    Very Challenging Golfcourse. Starts off with 4 Holes in the Pines and gets tougher out in the Dunes. Definitely a „Must Play“-Golfcourse 👍
