This course was a big disepointment. They want label it as a links. A links course is built on sand close to the sea, no trees and no stones anywhere. Only 3 holse qualifies for that. The condition of the fairways, bunkers and teeboxes is poor. The greens are ok. The way they maintane the hole course is bad, and... More

Dear Mr Peter B. Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you found Oitavos Dunes to be a big disappointment. We would like however to clarify the definition of what a links course is:  Links courses derived their name as courses built on land that links fertile land to the sea. This is indeed the... More

My all time favourite courses prior to this trip were San Lorenzo in the Algarve closely followed by Waterville in Co Kerry. Oitavos Dunes is ranked ahead of both so my expectations were high.... We played on a hot September day with a mid afternoon tee off as we had landed in Lisbon earlier that day after some early beers... More

Received a green fee as a gift and played here last Monday. Arrived at the Club house around 10:30. After a major issue in not having a tee time booked, I was given a tee time for an hour later. That there was nobody on the course for three holes in front and behind when I played, I was a... More

I have had meals here as part of tournaments and found the food to be beautifully presented and delicious. I have no idea about prices but hear they are on the high side.

This was a golf course about 5 minutes walk from where we were staying at Quinta Da Marinha. Rated 65 in the world, it is a mixture of links and woodland golf. Lovely views tough holes, no water but lots of tough holes and sand all placed at the right places. Cost of 105 euros was fair for a great... More

The staff here were pretty unfriendly at the reception, layout is good, see views and vegetation spectacular, spoiled by poor maintenance - overpriced for what you get. Paid 9 euros for 2 x 200 ml cokes - this is more than I would pay almost anywhere in Switzerland. If you want great courses go to Ireland, Wales, Scotland or England... More

This is an "organic" golfcourse which makes it so unique. They use only little water and at first sight, the course looks very dry. But it very beauyful and also very Special once you are there.
