Located between beautiful Silver Coast countryside and the sparkling Atlantic Ocean, this golf course offers deep bunkers, lush fairways, sand hazards and gently rolling greens that provide an endlessly varied game. Many golfers regard it as one of the continent’s most picturesque layouts.

The best views on the course come at the second hole, with its panoramic view of the ocean and the Berlengas archipelago; and at the twelfth and fourteenth where the fairways run alongside the water’s edge.

Praia del Rey is less than an hour’s drive from Lisbon and not far from the medieval village of Óbidos, which along with the many other attractions of the Silver Coast is well worth visiting when you’ve finished golfing for the day.
