Oitavos Golfe 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.|Hills has maintained and preserved the unique caracteristics of the land. The environmental certification was done in cooperation with Audubon International, an American environamental 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.|Quinta da Marinha Oitavos Golfe is the 1st Golf Course in Europe and the 2nd in the Word being recognised as a Certified Signature Sanctuary - Gold. It is already set as one of the best golf courses in Europe, where a non stress round of golf can be played all year round.
Another excellent golf course in Cascais Portugal .. what a region it is for golf and should be high in any golf tourist list ????????
We found that it was difficult to find on our satnave because of new roads creates in recent years. However, the road signage was non existent which kis bad marketing. The bar and restaurant was closed for refurbishment. It would have been nice to know before we visited The course was enjoyable but in need of attention. It looked a little neglected and the signage is poor and needs painting at the very least We were surprised to have to pay 60 euros for a buggy having just been to play Quinta South with a buggy price of 37.5 euros.
We had high expectation regarding the visual point of view of the course taking the pictures you can find back on the internet into account but we were a bit disappointed. A lot of holes are played on a 'open' plateau which we didn't expect and was visually less appealing. Apart from this, tee boxes-fairways and greens were in good condition. The staff, especially at the font desk, were very friendly. The tapas, especially the croquettes, were great.
Very nice layout, we were surprised that they had sanded the greens which was disappointing as we were not made aware of this
Course is fine but overpriced compared to others. Signage on course is tired and poor. Very disappointing that guests can’t bring buggies to car park and have to carry golf bags up and down flights of stairs. We won’t return.
In generally my opinion is exceptional golf course compared to any other Lisbon area courses. Some minor minuses were: rangeball dispenser was not available on Mon 3rd of Oct. Restaurant was not open on Monday although the course was fully booked from early morning till late evening. We were playing from white tee and it was confusing that white/black tees were missing totally on 14th teebox. And last but not least on Mon 3rd trolleys were not available and only buggy or carry on bag were options. This was also very strange for the high quality course invwhich many players only visit once during their stay Wish this leads to even better Oitavos Best regards, Pasi Olenius Helsinki
Very nice, in perfect shape.
Oitavos dunes is a beautiful golf but nothing compared to the golf in the north like west cliffs, praia Del Rey etc …
This was supposed to be the best course and it was certainly the most expensive course during our vacation. But we were very disappointed. There was a lot of sand on the greens. This has not been told to us in advance. Also a lot of construction around the course and the clubhouse/restaurant.

Excellent links golf course with great ocean views. The course design is unique and we will come back to play this course.
Very nice course. Perfect. Only a pity that restaurant/bar was closed due to private party. They did not tell upfront. And the 19th hole was our final destination for the long weekend with our own ceremony awards etc. We had to move this to our accomodation. So course a 8.
*Undulated - Quick greens and surprising slopes
*Mix - Some parts of the course have the links feeling
