Porto Santo Golfe

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 2004

Porto Santo Golfe: located on the second largest island in the Maderia Islands archipelago, this relatively recent Seve Ballesteros design, is set against a rugged backdrop of dramatic basalt cliffs, towering craggy hills, and the mighty Atlantic Ocean. The layout was designed to blend in with its natural landscape, with care to minimize the impact on the environment.

The course comprises 18 holes that can stretch to 6,434 metres from the tips. The layout embraces two distinct zones – a South course in the American tradition, dotted with lakes and demanding a long, precise game.

The North course is played along spectacular cliff tops. This open parkland layout, with its dramatic backdrop of hills, cliffs and the ocean, provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy.

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).

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.
