Palheiro Golf, Funchal

(3.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Swing, drive, and putt your way through a varied course at Palheiro Golf. Test your skills on a full run of 18 holes, featuring difficult sections while maintaining relatively high levels of accessibility for golfers of all skill levels. You'll find that each hole often tries to take advantage of the natural hilliness of the area, utilizing bumps and rises within the sand traps and tricky greens.

  • Palheira is a short quite a golf course, but very tiring to walk. After my 1st round, I was thrilled. After the 7th round no longer. As has often described the Bunkerr are still very reliant to little sandy, partly with grass, as you can see from how long there was done nothing. Now in the Jan 2017 began to prepare just the bunker. Otherwise were the fairways and the Greens in regulation. The course itself is very nice, the PAR 3 for example are all very easy, I could play it with small irons and wedges to even though I am not just long. The course has also his problems, with slopes or steep playing high. The many golf beginners were what we liked but didn't, it's just a hotel room and since everyone on it must even in jeans. Of the 7 rounds we can play through one. The staff was very friendly and very attentive to help us. No matter when we started, we had to wait and wait, even though we long returned a mostly in the teahouse, to give us air to reach 5.9 and 12, after hole. And we're not the fastest players. It lacked a Marshal, just the for reasonably caused the flow of game. Bottom line: if it is there, you can play well the place and the terrace of the Club House and the food and the cake are very beautiful. I will no longer spend a whole vacation on this place. The second course on the island, Santo do Serra is recommended.

  • Great view from premises.
  • Fantastic views of the sea and stark streets. Place not quite in perfect Zustand.Bunker partially very unkempt. And totally covered the prices of green fees and rental equipment. Still more positive... The course is a challenge and the views of the sea are fantastic.

  • Play a round on the 6.10.2016 as a guest player. Despite stunning views and quite charming course overall a disappointment. €99 green fee (discount for hotel), €45 for rental clubs and €38 for a cart are completely covered. Square State unkempt, Greens partially arg infested, not boards for the respective railway, no towels at the ball washers at the tee and many very dry places on the course. Conclusion: Price/performance not acceptable!
