Owner description: Over-looking the bay of Machico lies the Santo da Serra Golf Club. Its original course, built in 1937, was redesigned in 1991 by the famous golf architect Robert Trent Jones who created a spectacular 27 hole golf course in one of the most beautiful landscapes that nature may offer. The MACHICO and the DESERTAS courses are the ones usually played on the Madeira Island Open, while the SERRAS course, though slightly plain, maintains the same game level.

This has to be one of the (the?) most spectacularly scenic courses you can play for anything like 'sensible' money. It wasn't in perfect condition in December (after a long drought in the summer and very heavy rains in Oct/Nov) but who cares!!! Its a great place to play, the staff are wonderful and I'd always recommend visting.

If you are a golfer and on holiday in Maderia you must play Santo Da Serra. Very reasonable rates through your hotel or directly with the club and the most fantastic views! I have played here since 2006, probably 10 to 15 times in 5 holidays.
I walk the course for exercise but understand why others might use a buggy!
Try it off the whites for fun and see if you can make it over some of the ravines.
A special mention to all the staff who are always pleasant and only to willing to help, unfortunately my golf swing was needing a bit more than one lesson.Dara the pro did his best but 31 years of swinging the wrong way can't be fixed in half an hour.
The course is dry and parched as one would expect when there hasn't been any rain but only making the fairways links like. The greens are very well watered and the bunkers have all been recently re sanded.
Once again take your camera and enjoy, remember you are on holiday!

I have played here a number of tomes over last 8 years. Three nine hole courses allow varied 18 hole rounds. All are long and challenging butand hilly so consider a buggy if not used to hills but the walk is lovely . Club house serves good food and Pro shop expensive but helpful. Most 5 star hotels can book good rates for you and arrange mini bus transfer wthe course

We were lucky enough to be in Maderia when this tournament was on and enjoyed the free access and magnificent scenery as well as the golf itself.
