Course Overview and Details

Updated information by the golf course professional

Porto Santo’s brand-new golf course stretches all the way across the island from dune-rolling beach to dramatic basalt cliffs. It offers that ideal combination - natural beauty and a challenging game. The layout was designed to blend in with the natural landscape, and immense care was taken to minimize impact on the environment. It features two distinct zones - a South Course in the American tradition, dotted with lakes and demanding a long, precise game; and a North Course played along spectacular cliff tops.
There is also a nine-hole 'pitch-and-putt' course of par-three holes (ideal for training precision shots), and a driving range. The clubhouse is a triumph of modern design, but blends harmoniously into the landscape, with its dry-stone walling, natural wood and hip wicker furniture.
