Located a 1-hour transfer north of Lisbon, West Cliffs is one of the newest additions to Portugal’s Silver Coast and has quickly become a must-play on a Lisbon golf tour.
Designed by Cynthia Dye, niece of legendary architect Pete Dye, the layout makes the most of the shoreline setting, weaving through the naturally undulating landscape and pine tree forest. Throughout the round, you are presented with effortlessly stunning views across the Atlantic Ocean.
One of the quirks of this spectacular layout is the lack of traditional tee boxes. Instead, players are encouraged to select a course length based on their ability and play from the locations accordingly.
We highly recommend following these guidelines, as the course demands a number of significant carries off the tee, that you’ll need to make, to ensure an enjoyable experience.
Habitat preservation was a key factor during the design and construction of West Cliffs. Waste sand bunkers and protected areas provide a sample of ongoing care and consideration to protect the natural environment.
West Cliff’s offers one of the finest clubhouses in Portugal, combining ecologically friendly materials and panoramic views of the dramatic Atlantic Ocean, the perfect place to relax after your round.
Take the short drive to Peniche, a fascinating old fishing village, perched out on a rocky outcrop. Ensure you have time after your round to walk the quaint streets, and dine at a traditional Portuguese fish restaurant. We recommend ‘Xakra’, this beachfront fish restaurant might not seem much, but the seafood is perfection, and at a great price.
With further development planned, we recommend playing West Cliff’s in the near future to ensure you can experience this natural golf course at its finest.
Portugal’s capital city is a cultural and historical hub set along the Atlantic Ocean coast. From its golf courses and vast green spaces to the bars and beaches that adorn the coastline, Portugal’s capital provides the ideal location for a golf vacation.
