It's fair to say we play a lot of golf in Lisbon. With Hole19 HQ located in the heart of the city, logistically it's a no-brainer. Yet even if we weren't, these courses would still rank high on our continental wishlist.
Here's a list of the best golf courses to play in Lisbon Portugal, direct from the team here at Hole19:Oitavos Dunes Golf Club
About one hour outside of Lisbon is the Oitavos Dunes - ranked 58th on the list in Golf magazines 'Top 100' in 2015, it's widely regarded as one of the top courses in the world. At close to 7000 yards, this pristine 72 par course is blessed with stunning coastal views and a layout that is a delight just to walk around.
Looking for the best golf course the Lisbon area has to offer? Look no further.
Golf World Magazine rated it amongst the 'Top 100 courses in Continental Europe' for good reason - without a doubt, it's one of the best golf courses in the Lisbon area. With its fast rolling greens and tricky bunker positions, this 6,624 yard par 72 parkland course is a stunning test for any golfer. If you're looking for a golf course near Lisbon, Quinta do Peru Golf comes highly recommended by Hole19 golfers.Belas Clube de Campo Golf Course
Aroeira I and Aroeira II golf course Aroeira I was dubbed "the Wentworth of Lisbon" by UK journalists. It's 6,650 yard expanse is set amongst nature and played through tree-lined fairways - you'll need your driving 'A-game' with you for this one. Aroeira II may be the younger sibling of the two golf courses but that doesn't make it any less formidable. Designed to high European Tour standards and with the threat of water on no fewer than 9 holes, it's a real test. After a golf course in the Lisbon area near the coast? The Aroeira resort could be the perfect stop for you.
Penha Longa Golf Club
Ribagolfe I and Ribagolfe II golf course
Once compared with Valderrama, Ribagolfe I is without a doubt one of the top golf courses near Lisbon. At 7,370 yards in length (from the black tees) its narrow fairways demand distance as well as accuracy. Whilst slightly shorter at 6,800 yards, Ribagolfe II is a more forgiving proposition but remains equally as appealing as its larger sibling.
Located just 40 minutes outside of the city, Ribagolfe is another one of the highly recommended golf courses in the Lisbon area.
