The Porto Santo Golf Course was opened on 1 October 2004 by the Sociedade de Desenvolvimento do Porto Santo (Porto Santo Development Company - SDPS), and has already aroused great interest both in Portugal and abroad.

Spreading out over the idyllic island of Porto Santo, the layout of the course was planned in such a way as to blend harmoniously with the landscape and to respect the local ecosystems, taking advantage of the native plant species and the various lakes already existing there.

It is an extensive and demanding course set in a spectacular landscape, one that is capable of attracting not only professional players, but also less experienced golfers, being divided into two different areas.

The southern course comes close to the traditional style of the best American courses, with a number of lakes and the island's long beach as a backdrop. It calls for a good and accurate long game. The abundance of strategically placed lakes is a good test of any golfer's power of concentration.

The northern course is enhanced by the island's high cliffs and combines the best features of British links courses with spectacular scenery, providing an unrepeatable challenge for golfers. Amongst its most impressive holes are numbers 13, 14 and 15, which run along the cliff top and allow players to enjoy magnificent views over the sea as they contemplate the jagged shoreline.
