West Cliffs Golf Links it is the sister course of Praia D’El Rey, a short drive away and one of continental Europe's leading layouts. 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 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 at the mouth of the Obidos Laguna.
The designer Cynthia Dye, niece of legendary architect Pete Dye, said: “The terrain at West Cliffs is amazing. On the vast majority of the holes, it was only necessary to site the green complexes with a bit of shaping and then define the limits of grassing. For the most part, the course was already there waiting for us.”
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.
