Oitavos Dunes Golf Course

Cascais, Lisbon, Portugal

Perennially ranked as one of the top courses in Portugal, Oitavos Dunes is the duel in the crown of Lisbon golf. Part of the Quinta da Marinha estate, the course weaves through the natural dunes of the Atlantic peninsula. The Arthur Hills design flows with the natural topography of the land, and when the wind picks up it can play very tough, completing the true links feel.

Contributing to the beauty of Oitavos Dunes is the lack of residential development, allowing for an immersive combination of golf and nature. Waste sand bunkers surround the fairways adding to the organic feel. Like any great course, this is a layout dictated by the landscape, quirks that demonstrate this include charming back-to-back par threes.
