Oitavos Dunes - Quinta da Marinha

Last Updated:

What we say

This course begins and ends among the trees, which is perfectly pleasant but it is the links holes which get the pulse racing, combined with the exhilarating Atlantic views too this course is a pleasure to play.

As golf settings go, few can match the magnificence of Quinta da Marinha Golf Couse. But don't be fooled by the birth certificate - Oitavos is a golf course well beyond its four years with narrow holes trundling through spectacular landscape that treats golfers to a links experience, complete with hard, fast greens, tight fairways and an ever-present sea breeze. One to savour.

The club's goal was to create one of the finest golf experiences in Europe, all within the elegant natural and historical framework inherent to the Quinta. Opportunities such as this are rare. With a site so rich in innate beauty, each hole must fit ideally in the setting, thus assuring a natural appearance with variety and charm. Oitavos is blessed with three distinct landscape forms; forested area (with the most beautiful umbrella pine trees in the world), dunesland, and the more open coastal transition areas. The course has been carefully routed to take advantage of all three zones, featuring all of their distinct characteristics. The routing is a continuous loop of holes, nine out and nine in, similar to linksland courses in Scotland. The sequence is an undisturbed golf experience from start to finish. Distant views of the Atlantic Ocean and the nearby Hills of Sintra are distinguishable from every hole. Each hole contributes to a cohesive statement and unique golf experience that is known as Oitavos Golf.

    I played this while staying in the area and have to say the lisbon coast offers a superior quality alternative to the algarve - seriously great courses and Oitavos is one of the best
