Quinta da Marinha Golf Course is an 18 hole golf course 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.
On this course you can really see the style of Robert Trent Jones, with elevated Greens & Tees, many bunkers in play and, as expected, water hazards. Every hole is different, and you really have to use all the clubs in your bag to make a good score.
Some of the memorable holes on the course 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 quite a 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 out to make sure you are not penalised by the water.
