Madeira Islands Golf

The Madeira Islands with their eternal spring are the perfect golf destination all year round. Two different islands, three magnificent golf courses and a wide range of accommodation, leisure and wellness for all golfers.

Their golfing tradition goes back to 1937, when three British men, Miles, Leacock and Blandy, built the first nine-hole course.

In Madeira you have two courses to choose from, Palheiro Golf with its 18 holes and Clube de Golfe do Santo da Serra with 27, both set in outstandingly beautiful scenery.

In Porto Santo, 40 km from Madeira, try the 27-hole course designed by the famous golfer, Severiano Ballesteros. Porto Santo is different from its “mother island” and its 9 km of beach and crystal-clear waters are just the thing after a game.

The annual Madeira Open is the most important golf tournament in the Madeira Islands and is part of the European PGA.

The islands have the facilities they need to welcome golfers with all handicaps, including high-quality hotels, making the islands a paradise for golf lovers, who are bound to enjoy the challenge of each hole and the charm of the surrounding countryside.

Wherever you play, you know you can count on impeccable maintenance and fabulous views of the ocean, Funchal Bay, exotic flora or deep valleys.
