We thoroughly enjoyed our Portugal golf holiday and thought The Oitavos Hotel was outstanding. The hotel was obviously brand new and still bedding down but it was run to a very high standard and the food, service and bedrooms were all great. It was very peaceful during the week and then livened up over the weekend.
We played the golf course twice; the first time it was blowing a gale and the second time around we were relieved to play in just a strong breeze! The golf course is beautiful and brings together the best elements of parkland and links style golf and is a real test of every aspect of the player’s game. In my opinion it was the best golf course I have played in Portugal which in my mind is high praise as courses like San Lorenzo and the Royal Course at Vale do Lobo are world class. The views of the Atlantic coast are awesome and it is certainly a real golfer’s course rather than a resort course.
It’s only about a 10 minute drive into Cascais so cab fares are never too high. Overall the entire golf break was brilliant and I look forward to playing this majestic golf course again the future.
