Praia D’El Rey Golf Course
The course is currently ranked the 57th best in Continental Europe by Golf World magazine but we think it should be much higher! Play it once and you'll see why. The front nine has a parkland feel to it as it runs in and out of the pine trees, while the back nine offers some of the best links golf in Portugal. Holes 13, 14 and 15 run along the Atlantic Ocean, providing fantastic views of the sea, dunes and back towards the pine forest. The 12th has to be the pick of the bunch; your approach shot to the green is played with the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop and once you arrive on the green the Belengas Islands become visible. Praia D'El Rey offers an excellent collection of diverse holes, with breathtaking views. Our group will play this course twice.

Sintra and its mystical hills dotted with fairy tale palaces and extravagant villas have attracted visitors for centuries. The Romans made it a place of cult moon worshiping and named it "Cynthia" after the goddess of the moon. They were followed by the Moors who also fell in love with the lush vegetation and built a hilltop castle, a palace, and several fountains around the town. Later it became the summer residence of the Portuguese royal family and attracted a number of wealthy aristocrats who built huge mansions and villas. Famous British poet and traveler Lord Byron stopped by in the 18th century, writing that the town is "perhaps in every respect the most delightful in Europe," and calling it a "glorious Eden" in his epic poem Childe Harold's Pilgrimage. His fellow countryman Robert Southey followed him and saw it as "the most blessed spot on the whole inhabitable globe."  It is indeed an extraordinary place with a surreal mixture of history and fantasy, protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. We'll stop near the town square and provide time to explore then we'll tour the National Palace.

Nestled along the Atlantic seaboard Portugal is a country of Discoverers waiting to be discovered by you. Offering more days of sunshine per year(300+) than any other country in Europe, it is ideal for golfers. Portugal offers an exceptional range of diverse landscapes in close proximity, superb cuisine, fine wines and hospitable people. Situated in the extreme south-west of Europe, just a 6-8 hour non-stop flight from five US Gateways(MIA, IAD, EWR, BOS & PHI), the country has an excellent infrastructure and impressive venue options to complement its storied history, world class golf, fantastic climate and warm culture. Our trip includes first class hotels, sumptuous cuisine, some of the best golf courses in Portugal and outstanding sightseeing.

Our tour begins in with participants flying into Lisbon's International Airport, where you'll meet your driver and transfer to the Troia Design Hotel. After a couple days of golf and seaside relaxation in Troia we'll travel north to explore Sintra and its famed National Palace. Then we'll continue to Praia D'El Rey where we'll spend five more days touring and playing fantastic coastal courses. Our final three nights will be back closer to Lisbon in the seaside village of Cascais, known as “The Town of Kings and Fishes” because it was a small fishing town that found favor with the 19th century Portuguese nobility, who visited for their summer retreat. Thanks to this fact, the town is uncommonly rich in beautiful architecture, museums and carefully maintained parks.  With Cascais as our base we'll spend one day touring Lisbon and spend another playing our final round of golf. This 12 day / 11 night Golf Adventure offers the perfect blend of sightseeing and golf. We hope you'll join us.

West Cliffs Golf Course
The West Cliffs Golf Course opened in June 2017. It is designed by Dye Designs Group, is located in Praia D´El Rey resort area, near Obidos and offers one of the most wonderful golf experiences in Portugal.  The varied coastal landscape and natural terrain was maintained undisturbed as possible to create a unique and world class 18-hole seaside links golf course alongside Portugal's Central Coast. Rolling sand dunes interspersed with coastal vegetation, while the pine groves overlook the ocean from above. The coastal scenery at West Cliffs is available in abundance as there are stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean from every hole.
With five tees on each golf hole, Fescue grass in the fairways and Agrostis on the greens, West Cliffs golf course is a par-72 with a maximum of 6,979 yards from the tips.

Praia D'El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort


Troia Golf Course
The Troia Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior is an amazing links and one of the most fascinating golf challenges in Portugal, located along the peninsula of Tróia – a region of outstanding natural beauty and one of the most scenic places in Portugal, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Sado Estuary, with an imposing view over the Arrábida Mountain.  Robert Trent Jones Senior created an 18 hole, par 72 layout, measuring 6.908 yards from the tips. Built on and among sand dunes, Jones truly integrated the natural landscape, in a coastal pine forest surrounded by rolling dunes and the sea. The white sand is always present, not only in the bunkers that protect the small greens, but also in the surroundings, outside the fairways which increases the challenge. Like many European courses, the tees, greens and fairways are maintained better than the rest of the course. The journey to/from the course includes a scenic ferry ride across the Sado estuary.

Portugal Golf Adventure

All of Obidos has been declared a national monument. It is known as the "Wedding Present Town" because it was a gift King Dinis gave to Queen Isabel on their wedding day in 1282, but that alone is not what makes it such an extraordinarily romantic place -- what make it one of Europe's most romantic medieval villages are its incredibly picturesque cobblestone streets lined with colorful houses filled with geraniums and bougainvillea, Gothic doorways and windows, whitewashed churches, flowerpots and dazzling tiles -- all encircled by the walls of a 12th century castle. Scaling its 13m (45ft)-high medieval walls is the best way to admire this picture postcard-perfect place.    The main street ("Rua Direita") leads from the town gate (decorated with 18th century tile panels) to the main square (Praça de Santa Maria). It has a beautiful fountain, a 15th century pillory, the Town Museum (with exhibits ranging from archeological finds to 15-17th centuries sculpture and paintings), and Santa Maria Church. That's where 10-year-old King Afonso V married his 8-year-old cousin Isabel in 1444, with an interior entirely faced with tiles and containing the tomb of João de Noronha, the castle governor who died in 1575. Close by is Misericordia Church (with a fine Baroque doorway), while outside the walls is the Amoreira Aqueduct, built at the behest of Catherine of Austria in 1575.    Every July a Medieval Fair recreates the Middle Ages with medieval music, knights, witches, and theater performances, and during the International Chocolate Festival in November, Obidos becomes the world's chocolate capital with incredible chocolate sculptures.

Jeronimos Monastery, Lisbon

The course was rated in the top 10 of Golf World magazine’s list of the ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in Continental Europe 2023/24’ - the highest- ever ranking for a new golf course. It scored a total of 81 points to make it the number one golf course in Portugal and the second on the Iberian Peninsula.
