I went with my husband and my son. We are not experienced golfers so decided to play on the 9 hole par 3 course. It was excellent. First we went on the driving range which was fun and warmed us up nicely. We hired clubs, purchased balls and t's and spent a lovely morning at the club. We thought the... More

Reception staff miserable, golf course such a let down. Potential is fantastic but execution poor and like a park pitch and putt! Tees are terrible, fairways patchy and in places down to bare rock. Greens would be OK if they could be bothered to cut them now and again. The water lakes are either empty or draining away and look... More

The title of my review says it all.. extremely disappointing. Ever since booking our holiday I was looking forward to playing a round of golf on a seve designed course and after reading the reviews and seeing the layout I couldn't wait to get there. I play off 9 so I am a fairly decent golfer and have played all... More

New course designed by Sevi Ballesteros. The course is really well designed and shows a commitment by the government to actively invest in regeneration. Site is just waiting for investment to continue building homes and hotel adjacent to the course.

Apart from Porto Santo's having both an eight and an eighteen hole golf course situated with a 360 gradient view of the island another unique attraction apart from golf is the migration of birds that accumulate around the pools of the golf course.

The course is beautifully set. Front nine towards the town and south shore. Back nine climbs up the hill with running water up to the edge. You have a great view over the north coast A par 3 and a par 4 dogleg right track the edge. Don't slice!!!

I played the course 3 times and found new ways to get round without losing too many balls. The views are spectacular and it is sometimes hard to concentrate. Sure sometimes you needed prefered lies on the fairway but the greens were pure. The reception and particularly Luciano in the restaurant made us feel very welcome.The food was very good... More

It's a lovely course, pretty much perfect holiday golf! The front is nice but the back nine is something else. Absolutely stunning. 10 is a great par 5 with water that in play on the right and then on you left for the second shot it lines the fairway on your left and after a tight tee shot it really... More

Great course with plenty of challenges. Greens are superb. The views over the Atlantic on the back nine are brilliant. Bring a spare old ball, puff your chest out and try driving over the cliffs on hole 14. You won't make it, but you'll have tried.
