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.

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.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
