Palheiro Golf - Madeira Island

One of Europe's most beautiful golf courses.

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.

Dining at the Clubhouse Restaurant

Gastronomy at Palheiro Golf Clubhouse Restaurant combines local culinary tastes with a southern European flavour. Influenced by the Atlantic and inspired by the Mediterranean – with a dash of the oriental adding a little spice.

Set under the 18th green at Madeira Island Palheiro Golf, the Clubhouse Restaurant sits high above Funchal and affords a glorious panorama of the bay, the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.

Golf & Spa

The Palheiro Spa, a short walk from the reception, features a veritable array of treatments and beauty therapies. The facilities include heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, Turkish bath and sauna plus a smart gymnasium which further enhances the wellbeing experience. There's an all-weather tennis court next door and the less energetic can play croquet on the lawn below the property.

The hotel borders the famous Palheiro Gardens and the Palheiro Golf course – a superb 18-hole, par 72 Championship layout – and offers privileged access to guests staying at Casa Velha. The hotel's Sports Fishing yacht " Balancal" lying in the Funchal marina is available for deep sea fishing and coastal excursions.
