Ombria Golf Course

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2023

Ombria Golf Course: designed by Jorge Santana da Silva, the dramatic course at Ombria weaves around ancient rivers and woodland, with plenty of pronounced elevation changes throughout. The two nine-hole loops set-off from Ombria's "hilltop village", where you'll find the castle-like clubhouse, surrounded by many other Portuguese-style buildings. To the east of the village lies the front-nine loop, to the south the back-nine.

At the "turn" of the front-nine, the plunging par-4 3rd and par-3 5th sit side-by-side. Each has a significant drop to their respective greens below. Leading you towards and away from these holes, the opening and closing stretches of the opening loop sit in the valley floor, with water much in play.

The more compact and less expansive back-nine, contains its own share of elevation changes, though not as dramatic as on the front-nine. From the closing stretch of this modern, well-balanced and wonderfully varied layout, you'll enjoy stirring views along a valley to distant hills and mountains beyond.

Pick of the holes: arguably Ombria's most scenic hole is perched at the highest point on the back-nine. The teasing short par-4 15th offers gorgeous views over the rest of the back-nine, while also taking in Ombria’s hilltop village and the Algarve’s classic valley and mountain landscape. Although not the most panoramic of Ombria’s dramatic collection of front-nine holes, the par-4 9th is certainly memorable. With water left and right off the tee, and a long approach into the also water defended green, you’ll need you’re A-game and a strong nerve to succeed at this long par-4.

Stay&Play at Ombria (from spring 2024): luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
