The Golf Course
A wonder of nature in its own right
The golf course at the Royal Óbidos Spa & Golf Resort has received its own "real" treatment of world golf legend Severiano Ballesteros. Applying his art in the design of golf courses, the renowned golfer has created a truly exceptional course here, honoring the high quality standards of the resort.
Designed to integrate subtly with the natural surroundings, taking advantage of the undulating terrain, this 6,400 meter course attracts golfers of all levels.
The Golf Course
A brief introduction ...
The first hole, a generous 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 3rd, a 144m Par 3 off the yellow tees to an island green, with the stunning Óbidos lagoon in the background.
The second nine holes overlook the Atlantic Ocean. Six of the holes meander between an intricate ecosystem of lakes interconnected by cascading streams. The highlight of the back nine is the 18th, a 490m Par 5 off the yellow tees, with a panoramic over the back nine, the clubhouse and the Ocean beyond.
The clubhouse offers a restaurant with a variety of menus available, two bars, lounge, pro-shop and bags storage area. Sitting out on the generous terrace, owners and visitors to Royal Óbidos will enjoy spectacular views of the golf course and the cascading lakes and streams, ”and some truly wonderful sunsets” over the Atlantic Ocean.
The Club house offers varied cuisine in The Legend Restaurant & Bar, two bars, a reception, a golf shop and a collection area. In a large terrace area, both owners and visitors enjoy a breathtaking view over the golf course, with the different lakes, streams and waterfalls, as well as a wonderful and unforgettable sunset, taking the sea as a backdrop.
