The Quinta da Marinha Golf Course has 18 holes with 5,870 meters of pure nature and big challenges. This par 71, designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones, offers fantastic views over the Atlantic Ocean and the Sintra Mountains.
In this course you can really see the style of Robert Trent Jones in the elevated Greens & Tees, many bunkers in play and, as expected, some water hazards.
Every hole is different, you will have to use all the clubs in the bag and play with strategy to make a good score.
Some of the holes you won’t forget are:
– Hole 3, Par 4: it is one of the most famous holes of the Portuguese Golf, with view to the Atlantic Ocean, its picture was used for many years to promote “Golf in Portugal” abroad.
– Hole 4, Par 3: played over a natural ravine to a quite demanding Green.
– Hole 13, Par 3: you play over a big lake to an elevated green well protected with 4 bunkers.
– Hole 18, a beautiful Par 5: with two lakes, all shots have to be well thought to make sure you are not penalized by the water.
