Santo Estevao Golfe

Last Updated:

What we say

The perfect course in the perfect place. Santo Estevão Golf is to be found in untouched countryside in the Ribatejo region of Portugal, 30 minutes east from Lisbon’s international airport. The latest of three 18-hole golf courses in the area, it has established Santo Estevão as the country’s new golfing destination. The new course is part of Vila Nova de Santo Estevão, a residential and touristic resort specifically designed for single-family housing, with large plots and extensive green areas and only 7 residents per hectare. 90% of the area is maintained as wooded countryside and no residential development has been allowed within the course. In full harmony with the natural environment, Santo Estevão Golf’s unique, typically Portuguese landscape of beautiful cork-oaks and wide open spaces bears testimony to the traditional cork harvesting and cattle rearing of the region. Designed by the well known British Architect Donald Steel, who has experience in designing or re-designing hundreds of golf courses worldwide, Santo Estevão Golf follows the British School by taking advantage of the existing landscape and fully respecting the environment. The result is a course which blends in with its natural environment, with the golden tones of the natural grasses retained in the rough areas enhanced by brightly coloured spring flowers. With carefully designed bunkers and greens, the 18-hole course offers a delightful challenge to all standards of golfer. The gently undulating land is ideal for golf and makes for an easy, pleasant walk throughout the course. Conditions around the greens allow players to choose the best recovery shot, from low chip and runs to high pitches. Notable holes are the 3rd with its drive over the first of the course’s two lakes; the 7th, where the second shot is over the second lake, and the11th with an outstanding view of the resort´s large new lake.
