Palheiro Golf Course is one of Europe’s most beautiful golf courses. Set within the magnificent Palheiro Estate, the Championship golf course meanders through a pristine environment of maritime pine and botanical woodland embroidered with lush, sub-tropical vegetation. At nearly 500 metres above sea level, the location is blessed with dramatic views of Madeira’s mountainous skyline and the vast Atlantic Ocean. This picturesque layout with year-round appeal takes full advantage of Madeira’s hilly terrain, with abrupt ridges and deep valleys providing a compelling challenge for even the most seasoned golfer. Play calls for a fair degree of accuracy, the contoured fairways and strategically placed bunkers guarding fast, undulating greens mean there’s little room for error. A halfway house, The Tea House, offers refreshments and a chance to pause and assess scorecards. A round of golf at Palheiro engages all the senses and rewards those of all abilities with an enjoyable and memorable experience.
