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.

It's a good mix of links style and pine forest holes. Most fairways are pretty generous but greens are all well protected by numerous bunkers. While not being directly next to the Atlantic shore, there are views on the ocean on most holes. I played 36 holes in a day and can't complain about anything. Nice weather, good pace of play, perfect maintenance, you can't be wrong by booking a round at Oitavos ! Onsite hotel is really good value.

Parcours magnifique mais très difficile! Très naturel avec des vues à 280 degré sur l’océan atlantique! Le par 3 trou no 14: fer 6 samedi et fer 4 dimanche pour la même distance! Super beau! L’hôtel un peu stérile à mon goût mais très bien quand même!
