Located on the famous Estoril Coast, 25 kilometers from Lisbon, the Quinta da Marinha course was designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones and is set in a private estate of 110 hectares, wooded with pine trees. The architect has worked on the flat terrain, laying out the course over 5870 metres for a Par 71.
The most spectacular hole on this course is hole number 3, a Par 4 of 334 metres sloping down towards the sea. Once on the green, the golfer has the Atlantic Ocean as background. The whole of Quinta da Marinha's course is surrounded by beautiful panoramic views. The following hole (a Par 3) requires a very precise shot for the ball to cross a cliff and reach a wide but not very deep green.
For most of the course, however, the fairways face inland with the beautiful outline of the Sintra mountain range forming their background. Many bunkers and a number of lakes make the player's task even more difficult. Hole number 10, for instance, has a green entirely surrounded by water.
I know there was a lot of rain over the last few weeks but the course was poor, and the worst we played in 3 days. The greens and tee boxes were not good

After 3rd hole 3 groups on each tee, took just under 5 hours even with marshal on course! Bit expensive and not in good condition.
Course in very poor condition and clubhouse very expensive
Too many players on the course, at at certain point there were 6 groups on the same hole! Absolutely madness! Bad experience…
Nice greens and decent fairways. Bunkers could have been in better shape.
Course in bad condition
Course is tricky with tight dog legs on many holes but that’s the Great challenge for golfers. However disappointed a little with the greens as a ariation holes still making them a little tougher to putt on not running so true at Thai stage . Overall a great experience and weather was beautiful
A bit scruffy in places and probably poorest course/ condition
This was the 3rd time we played this course on this trip and the condition was improved on previously with better coverage on the fairways. The tees are uneven with poor overall coverage, the bunkers also poor and there are some scruffy bare areas around the greens. The overall design of the course is good and there are some attractive views towards the sea. It was very hot and we couldn’t get a buggy as they were all booked out, advice is to pre-reserve if one is required.
Hotel is good but a bit remote from from other facilities (restaurants/shops). Wouldn’t recommend for groups of golfers. Service and staff helpful and friendly. Golf course is an attractive challenging layout, greens and fairways in good condition. Bunkers and green surrounds could do with some improvement. Staff friendly and helpful
Course was in poor condition fairways dry and very tightly cut. Tee's poorly maintained and greens very warn in places
Quinta da Marinha, place in very bad condition, all dried up, greens good. Space very confusing you have to cross fairways several times to the next tee. Overall the worst golf course.
