Lisbon Portugal

Our Lisbon golf area is centred on the delightful fisherman’s village of Cascais, a 30 minute drive from the centre of the Lisbon, along the banks of the river Tagus.

Two excellent courses, Oitavos, the most westerly in Continental Europe and its neighbour, the Robert Trent Jones designed Quinta daMarinha are within a five minute drive of the village. Oitavos, designed by American, Arthur Hills, his first in Europe, was also the first golf course in Europe and the second in the world to receive the Audubon International Gold Seal for the preservation of nature. Since it opened for play in 2001, it has hosted a number of events including the PGA European Seniors Tour.

Fifteen minutes drive inland, in the grounds of the Penha Longa estate, near the town of Sintra, 36 holes laid out by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and managed by Ritz Carlton, are a superb test, especially when the prevailing northerly wind blows. It is well worth an hours drive north to Pria d’El Rey, a challenging seaside course laid out by Robert Trent Jones Sr.’s protégé Cabell Robinson. To the south, en route to the the Algarve, Troia, a secluded links course designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr himself is very much woth the diversion. The car ferry ride across the bay to the course makes the day.

Find time before golf at Penha Longa, to visit the summer palaces at Sintra. After golf, wander the village of Cascais, with its fish market and delightful seafood restaurants and visit the nearby Estoril Casino, the largest in Europe.

Lisbon is an easy train ride away. It was from Lisbon that so many explorers set out to discover the New World and where they are celebrated today with monuments and museums well worth a visit; afterwards dine in a restaurant with Fado, the classical Portuguese equivalent of “the Blues”.
