Portugal Courses

Recommended Posts

I'm heading to Portugal in a couple weeks for a semi-golf vacation. Any Spyers have any recommendations for courses? I'm already set to play the Royal Obidos which I'm super excited about it because it's Seve designed!

 

Thanks in advance!

I´m from Portugal and i can point a few for you. Will you be staying just around Lisbon, will you go south? North? Do you have means to travel? What kind of courses are you looking for? Dificult, sight seeing ? just to relax ?

And Oeiras Golf

I made a review about this one.

 

The best course for me, within beauty is Vidago, i would rate it medium-hard difficulty

You also have a lot to choose from if you go to the south ( Algarve ), but i never played there.

 

Good luck choosing.

Thanks so much! I'll try to see as many of these as I can. I'm starting in Lisbon and then moving along the coast to Porto. Westcliffs looks stunning!

You're welcome, hope to see some pictures of your adventures golfing in Portugal.

WestClifs is a very recent addition to our golf Portfolio so I hope you get to play there, it's been hard to get tee these days of summer.

[mention=77076]SeeMore Putts[/mention] Have you played in Portugal yet? How was it?
Loved it!!! Played West Cliffs twice it was so good. Also played Seve's course first but took me 3 holes to figure out you guys use 150 m instead of 150 yards. But can't wait to come back. Thanks for your help!

Here's a picture of the view from the 18th at West Cliffs. IMG_20180803_205529_408.jpeg

It really looks astonishing. I´m glad you liked it, where you guiding yourself by the reference '' sticks '' ? I believe only a few courses in Algarve use the double marking with a color for meters and another for yards. As a reference for everyone reading this post we use a mark on the post for every 50 meters 50 Meters = 54.680665 Yards so its 5 more yards that what your used to right?
