Oitavos Dunes Golf Course lies within the Sintra and 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 comes from the Sintra mountains and Cabo da Roca the Europe’s most western point, seen from the 9, 10, 11 and 14 holes.
In the run to be the best
The layout of Oitavos Dunes Golf Course, in Lisbon Region, Portugal, has been carefully crafted by one of the greatest golf architects of our times, ex-president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, Arthur Hills.
And it is already set as one of the best golf courses in Europe. The Oitavos owner’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. They felt that with a site so rich in innate beauty, each hole of Oitavos golf course must fit ideally in the setting, thus assuring a natural appearance with variety and charm. To accomplish this objective of excellence, the management of Oitavos Dunes Golf Club has established strict rules of respect towards the land. The quality and the maintenance of the course have to be perfect.
