Oitavos Golfe lies within the Sintra-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 come from the Sintra mountains and Cabo da Roca the Europe's most western point in Europe.|Hills has maintained and preserved the unique caracteristics of the land. The environmental certification was done in cooperation with Audubon International, an American environamental association.|The sustainability of the resources is the prior objective, and because of that the flora and fauna peculiar to the region are strictly protected, being some areas closed to people and machines.|Quinta da Marinha Oitavos Golfe is the 1st Golf Course in Europe and the 2nd in the Word being recognised as a Certified Signature Sanctuary - Gold. It is already set as one of the best golf courses in Europe, where a non stress round of golf can be played all year round.
The golf course was very well maintained and the holes are links-course typical varied. We had caught a windless day, which certainly helped. The greens were fast, but not so that putting was impossible. The reception at the clubhouse was a bit underwhelming. And since we got a late start, no one was waiting for us - we got off the 18th green at 6:20pm. We then put the carts somewhere and after some searching, the cook let us out of the already locked area.
A great course in good condition for the time of year
In generally my opinion is exceptional golf course compared to any other Lisbon area courses. Some minor minuses were: rangeball dispenser was not available on Mon 3rd of Oct. Restaurant was not open on Monday although the course was fully booked from early morning till late evening. We were playing from white tee and it was confusing that white/black tees were missing totally on 14th teebox. And last but not least on Mon 3rd trolleys were not available and only buggy or carry on bag were options. This was also very strange for the high quality course invwhich many players only visit once during their stay Wish this leads to even better Oitavos Best regards, Pasi Olenius Helsinki

This remains a truly world class golf course and a memorable day out for anyone who loves the game. Everything was in immaculate condition when we played. It is, however, very expensive, so it is a little disappointing that the Club offers you absolutely nothing for this beyond the right to play golf, not even a bottle of a bottle of water to take with you in your pricey buggy. This seems a little mean.
Lovely course, some wide fairways but also some tough drives and narrow targets - so a great test for all levels.
Gold course was good. We did not utilise the bar or restaurant but facilities were good
Really good course, tight front nine, then opens up a little back nine. Condition in May 22 was excellent and the fastest greens we played.
Another day, another round of golf. First time here, and truly impressive, not sure I like Ronaldo's new house being built in front of the clubhouse, if you can call it a house, more like a hotel???? I play of nine and started the course off the whites, but after coming up short(ISH) on a few par fours, I went to the yellow's, a much better experience. You must stay on the fairways as the rough is pretty tricky to get out of, a mix of sand and shrubs. The fairways were in pretty good condition, and the greens were (good) tough, and quite slick. There are some truly memorable holes with views, and I would recommend it if you are in the area
Played a 2 ball at 09.00 and made it round in under 4 hours with other golfers in front. Staff were really helpful in re booking us for the early tee time, and resulted in a great day.
Course in great condition with fast true greens with helpful staff. We played a 2 ball, but got held up by an unofficial competition of 4 balls with the round taking 5 hours.
Tough course off the back tees plus wind can pay havoc. Nice course but a bit scruffy in places due to building work going on.

*Undulated - Quick greens and surprising slopes
*Mix - Some parts of the course have the links feeling
