Oitavos Dunes

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.

STATS

Designed by: Arthur Hills

Opened for play: 2001

Par: 71

Previously Hosted: Portuguese Open (2005, 2007, 2008, 2009), Ladies Open (2006), Euro Pro Tour (2002, 2003), Challenge Open (2004), Seniors Open (2003, 2004, 2006),

Awards: 55th best course course in world and 2nd best in mainland Europe (2017, as ranked biannually by America’s Golf Magazine)

TEES

Championship: 6372 metres (6969 yards), SSS 74

Members: 5967 metres (6526 yards), SSS 72

Dunes: 5605 metres (6130  yards), SSS 70

Ocean: 5180 metres, (5665 yards), SSS 73

Pine: 4488 metres, (4908 yards), SSS 69

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.

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.

Fabulous course, open inviting fairways and terrific ocean views. Blustery conditions on the day added to the challenge. Would play this course again.
