Quinta da Marinha Golf Course

Quinta da Marinha golf course, Cascais, Estoril, Lisbon, Portugal

Quinta da Marinha, set amongst beautiful pine trees and stretching down to Guincho beach, has some of the most beautiful scenery in Portugal.  Its hole number 13, a Par 4 descending to the sea, is a picture postcard of Portuguese golf.

Quinta da Marinha Golf Course - plan
Located on the famous Estoril coast, 25 kilometres from Lisbon, the Quinta da Marinha course was designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones and is set in a private estate of 110 hectares, wooded with pine trees. The architect has worked on the flat terrain, laying out the course over 6,100 metres for a Par 71.

The most spectacular hole on this course is hole number 13, a Par 4 of 339 metres sloping down towards the sea. Once on the green, the golfer has the Atlantic Ocean as background. The whole of Quinta da Marinha course is surrounded by beautiful panoramic views. The following hole (a Par 3) requires a very precise shot for the ball to cross a cliff and reach a wide but not very deep green.

For most of the course, however, the fairways face inland with the beautiful outline of the Sintra mountain range forming their background. Many bunkers and a number of lakes make the player's task even more difficult. Hole number 10, for instance, has a green entirely surrounded by water.

In 1988 this course hosted the EMS-Quinta da Marinha Ladies Masters, a test which forms part of the Women's Professional European Circuit. It was won by the South African Laurette Maritz-Atkins.
