A combination of three 9-holes

The original Santo da Serra Golf Course was built back in 1937 and was rebuilt into a completely new and spectacular 27-hole course in 1991 by the renowned architect Robert Trent Jones. Santo da Serra is situated on the beautiful Madeira Island, surrounded by incredible landscapes.

Impeccably maintained

The Santo da Serra Golf Course offers excellent quality in its fairways and greens. Semi-roughs and roughs provide evidence of the meticulous care given to the course, and the amazing views only add to the enjoyment. 

The most impressive facts

The Santo da Serra golf course descends 300 metres from top to bottom, allowing for stunning panoramic view over Madeira Island. In addition, there are exciting shots over deep ravines.

The choice of clubs is interesting: altitude differences and wind are decisive here.

In order not to make the game unnecessarily difficult on this very hilly course, the trees are usually quite far away from the fairways and the few water hazards should not cause any major difficulties.

The best holes

Holes 2 and 4 of the "Machico" round are unforgettable.
