In a place of unspoiled nature, were the Wild West Europe meets the immensity of the Atlantic Ocean, a new golf experience managed by Praia D’el Rey is born.
It seems as if it was always here.
We have just perfected nature.
The new golf course has been designed to perfectly fit into the natural environment and create one of the most wonderful golf experiences. Nature is in abundance and from every hole there is a stunning view over the Atlantic Ocean and Óbidos Lagoon.
The varied landscape and natural terrain was left as undisturbed as possible to create a unique and world class 18-hole golf course alongside the silver coast.
The existing terrain is “natural rolling sand dunes and coastal vegetation” interspersed with areas of pine groves overlooking the sea from a variety of elevations above the cliffs and permanent views of the Atlantic Ocean and the nearby Óbidos Laguna.
The course layout is the result of a long term study of the terrains conditions and characteristics to preserve the natural beauty and ecological balance of the site. It was always here. We have just perfected nature.
Cynthia Dye McGarey
The golf course design process required a long term, careful study of the site conditions, characteristics and restrictions. The Dye team worked closely with the local government's planning and engineering departments as well as several concerned national ministries. The design evolved through many reviews and exhaustive revisions to ensure a minimum disturbance of the environment and protection of the areas of existing drainage basins, dinosaur fossils and heritage pine trees.
The beauty and challenge of this rare ocean side links course grows with each passing hole and although thrilling and dramatic it is available to all levels of golfers.
