Set within the magnificent Palheiro Estate on the Atlantic island of Madeira and lying adjacent to the five-star Casa Velha do Palheiro – a Relais & Châteaux property – the 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course meanders through a pristine environment of maritime pine and botanical woodland embroidered with lush, sub-tropical vegetation.
At nearly 500m (1,640ft) above sea level, the location is blessed with dramatic views of Madeira’s mountainous skyline and the vast Atlantic Ocean. Nestling below just 10 minutes away is Funchal, the island’s capital.
Designed by renowned golf architect Cabell B Robinson, this picturesque layout with year-round appeal takes full advantage of Madeira’s hilly terrain, with abrupt ridges and deep valleys providing a compelling challenge for even the most seasoned golfer.
Summer Special, Madeira Golf Passport and tailor-made packages are available.
