Porto Santo Golfe is a 27-hole golf club on scenic Porto Santo Island, in Madeira, Portugal. It opened in 2004, and was designed by the Spanish 5-time major winner, Seve Ballesteros.DescriptionThe 7,041 yard, par 72 layout features spectacular views, particularly on the back nine, as holes 13, 14 and 15 run alongside the rugged coastline. The signature hole is the par 3 13th, which measures 200 yards and requires a shot over a gorge to reach the cliff-top green.In addition to the full length course, there is a nine-hole pitch and putt. There are also tennis facilities and an equestrian centre at the club.Madeira Islands OpenPorto Santo Golfe hosts the Madeira Islands Open on the European Tour. Changes made to the course for the tournament included a new back tee for the 14th, and the shortening of the par 5 3rd, so that it plays as a par 4. The course therefore plays as a 6,983 yard par 71 as opposed to the standard par 72 layout.

  • Come to Porto Santo three times in the last six years and, apart from the incomparable Beach, I come for golf. 18-hole Ocean cliffs with breathtaking degrading until near the beach on the other side of the island. In the middle of a high-level architectural club house with an excellent restaurant. Various holes, all different, that you remember. On top, in front of the Atlantic, a bench, with a touching recollection of Seve Ballesteros who drew the most scenic holes. Atlantic wind also supported but it's hard to lose balls, contrary to what often happens in the fields to the sea. The shortage of water makes the field a bit dry but everywhere well playable. Professional and hospitable services. An enjoyable golf paradise with friends, but also on their own. Among other things with a dry climate and breezy that never gets old. Worth a trip!

  • Reception staff miserable, golf course such a let down. Potential is fantastic but execution poor and like a park pitch and putt! Tees are terrible, fairways patchy and in places down to bare rock. Gr...  read more »
