Set in a beautiful location next to the ocean and surrounded by the green landscape of the Silver Coast, Royal Óbidos is a Championship course with long fairways and stunning seaside views making it not only a wonderful golf course to play but also will represent a true test of golf for players of all levels.
The first hole, a difficult right handed dogleg, heads north, setting up a spectacular combination of holes overlooking the lagoon (Lagoa de Óbidos). The feature hole of the front nine is the 5th, an exciting 520m par 5, with a final approach into a large undulating green surrounded on three sides by water.
The second nine holes lie in the central and southern section of the development. Six of the holes meander between an intricate ecosystem of lakes interconnected by cascading streams. The highlight of the back nine is the 12th, a 420m par 4, where the golfer has to negotiate both the drive and the second shot between and over two lakes and the curving stream.
