Overview
More
Set within the magnificent Palheiro Estate and lying adjacent to the five-star Madeira Island Hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro – a Relais & Châteaux property – the 18-hole, par 72 Championship golf course meanders through a pristine environment of maritime pine and botanical woodland embroidered with lush, sub-tropical vegetation.At nearly 500 m (1640 ft) above sea level, the location is blessed with dramatic views of Madeira’s mountainous skyline and the vast Atlantic Ocean. Nestling below just 10 minutes away is Funchal, the island’s capital. Designed by renowned golf architect Cabell B. Robinson, this picturesque layout with year-round appeal takes full advantage of Madeira’s hilly terrain, with abrupt ridges and deep valleys providing a compelling challenge for even the most seasoned golfer.Teeing off here is to walk through a verdant and tranquil 200-year-old country estate, and an abundance of fragrant, exotic flora lends the course a unique and singular quality.

Booked a round at a cost of 77 euros, but was not able to go round with anyone who was a member, so it's a lot harder when you don't know the course. It's a very steep course, and the greens were not very good...More

Lovely setting, the flowers were beautiful! We didn't actually stay at Palheiro Village to play golf, but it would have been ideal if we had.

Played this course 4 times . Hilly terrain and many blind shots . Some bare patches on fairways and greens average but some stunning holes and great views.With some money spent on course could be better. Excellent clubhouse with good food
