For an event on the professional tour I was disappointed with the overall experience. Extremely expensive for anything & it seemed the club was only interested in making money. There were no marshals on the course, hence a large group managed to hold us up throughout our round taking 5 1/2hrs to complete. Far far too long & it should have been managed by the club. Not as impressed as I thought I would have been & will not be going back.
Oitavos is without doubt one of the best new projects to be completed in Europe in recent years, with an outstanding golf course set in a truly awe-inspiring environment.

Sites for golf courses come no better than this, where American golf architect Arthur Hills has created a masterpiece. Hills, who for many decades has been highly regarded for his projects in the United States, was extremely conscious of respecting the natural landscape and the species that it supports, and as such Oitavos has received many awards for its environmental awareness.
There are always views of the rugged Atlantic coastline from the course, which is formulated in the style of a traditional Scottish links course, with nine holes out and nine holes back home. Though not strictly a links course - the fairways are often bordered by woodland - Oitavos does have the sandy turf that makes seaside golf so special.
This new addition to Portugal's golfing landscape is more than welcome, and delights every player fortunate enough to include it in their golfing holiday.

Signature Hole: Hole 14, Par 3, 153 metres (167 yards), SI 12
Oviatos’ 14th hole rates as one the best par 3s in the world and deservedly takes the title of signature hole. When the wind is up, this hole turns into a real test and can often play much longer than its stated length of 167 yards suggests, making for a tough club selection. From the tee you will be playing over a storm gorge which then hugs the right hand side of the hole. This par 3 is a fantastic showcase of golf in Lisbon.

Amazing course great views, Shane we played it in 40 mph winds. Also no buggies which again made the round slower.
Very good golf course 4 of the greens had been oversanded hence the low mark of the greens. Hospitality was very poor was told to sit outside to eat before round and then told afte 1 drink that the bar was closed due to an event , although no-one had turned up by the time we left
A very few demanding shots,typical holiday golf into wide open spaces,greens very slow,buggies 58 euro and totally necessary . Very bad value for money.
We were delayed flying out and the staff were very helpful to facilitate later tee times. Lovely restaurant. Had heard so many good reports about this supposedly 3rd best course in Portugal.It really was in poor condition with lots of unattractive waste areas. Bit open double fairways which were congested. Greens not great. Very disappointing.
great course sadly the weather was very bad when we played and the world amateur championship was being played the next day they were out practicing that day so the pins were in very tough possitions, all in all it was too diricult for us off our handicaps mid to high teens, although this didnt stop us loving it and wanting to play it again
Tough course when the wind blows, can be long for high handicappers. Fairways and tees needed a bit of tidying up but greens excellent.
Overpriced and unwelcoming although it was a Monday
Another fine course with some excellent holes and views across the Atlantic. A good test
Bar and restaurant closed on Mondays in clubhouse, however staff ferried us all to hotel in buggies, so all fine in the end.
Fairly open course in places with confusing layout at times, difficult to know sometimes where fairway was. Unfortunately we were told buggies were not available even though pre booked? Worth a return visit as nice club house.
Stunning views of the sea from most holes. Greens are difficult to read
Fabulous course, open inviting fairways and terrific ocean views. Blustery conditions on the day added to the challenge. Would play this course again.
Club house disappointing. Bar Restaurante doesn’t open until 11! Overpriced overrated food. We called bus back early.
