Royal Óbidos Spa & Golf Resort

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

Est. 2012

Royal Óbidos Spa & Golf Resort is home to a well-rated Seve Ballesteros design, which opened the year following the tragic death of the legendary Spanish golfer and course architect. Needless to say, it was one of his last design projects to come to fruition.

This relatively open "heathland" layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. With nearly half the holes seriously threatened by water, especially alongside the greens, Seve has once again thrown down a tough golfing challenge.

The signature hole on the front-nine loop is the par-3 3rd, played to a water-surrounded island green, the Óbidos lagoon providing a stunning backdrop to the hole.

Several stretches of the back-nine overlook the Atlantic Ocean, which lies a kilometre or so to the west. The highlight of the closing nine comes at the risk-reward par-5 18th, which provides a panoramic view back across the holes you've just played, with the clubhouse beckoning, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.

Did you know?

15 km to the southeast is the historic and walled city of Óbidos ... a walk around the top of the wall is possible, but with several open-sided sections, it is not recommended for anyone with even the slightest touch of vertigo!

Directly bordering Royal Óbidos to the north are the more recently opened golf facilities of West Cliffs Golf Links, with a layout designed by Cynthia Dye McGarey.

Published ranking

2019 Golf World rating: 27th best Stay&Play golf resort in continental Europe.
