The best golf courses around Lisbon

When traveling around Europe, one place you shouldn’t miss is the capital city of Portugal. Many people come to Lisbon for the sunny weather, the equally warm locals and for the folklore and history of the cultural center of a country that used to be a great colonial empire, but there are those who also come to Portugal to fuel their passion: golf. The best golf courses around Lisbon host hundreds of international guests every season.

In 2007, the Lisbon Golf Coast was named the best European Golf destination by the IAGTO and ever since, the courses in the region have been striving to maintain these high standards. The courses around Lisbon provide excellent golfing facilities in a natural environment of quiet and beauty. So let’s take a moment to review some of these courses with soft leveled grass.

Opened in 1936, Estoril Coast is a luxury beach resort with a championship golf course just 25 minutes’ distance from Lisbon. It is in fact the oldest and most famous club in Portugal and was designed by Mackenzie Ross. With the Golf Academy here, you have the best chances of getting the hang of the sport within just a week!

If you want to mix golf with cultural travel, you can go to the medieval village of Obidos and walking under the scented pine trees of the forest, you will get inspired to play at the Praia d’El Rey golf course, which, as the name suggests, promises to offer a truly royal experience.

Another popular golf destination around Lisbon is Quinta da Marinha, offering flat terrain and gorgeous panoramic views. The view is quite spectacular, with the majestic Sintra mountain in view.

Around the local golf industry, transportation services have also developed, so most people choose to go online and book a Lisbon golf transfer to take them from the hotel or address to the golf course and back. It’s a really good idea!
