West Cliffs Golf Links

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2017

West Cliffs Golf Links: This new 5-star resort is located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Óbidos lagoon, laid out on rolling sand dunes interspersed with coastal vegetation. Managed by Praia D’El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort (which is located 8 km along the coast to the south-west), West Cliffs has been created over 200 hectares of natural landscape, and is already being hailed as one of Portugal's finest.

The two 9-hole loops, laid out to the east and west of the modern clubhouse, are both bordered by pine groves and rolling sand dunes, and offer sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. In due course properties will be developed, but only on the southern sections of the perimeter.
