A jewel of northern Portugal

Vidago Golf Course, in the north of Portugal, is located a one hour drive from Porto and 15-min from Chaves, near the Spanish border.

The magnificent Vidago Palace Golf Course was originally built by Mackenzie Ross in 1936 as a nine-hole golf course and has now been redesigned by Cameron & Powell as an 18-hole course. The expanded course meets USGA specifications and has been transformed into an international championship course of par-72 standard.

Vidago Golf Course has retained the integrity of the original design to reflect the aesthetics, playability, spirit and character of the site.

Special features

The Vidago Golf Course expands from a magnificent park with centenary trees through the Oura Valley, allowing great scenic views over the surrounding nature.

The course features elevated tees and greens and there are strategic bunker positions that require a keen eye to identify and assess slopes. As a result, the Vidago Palace Golf Course is a pure joy and challenge even for particularly skilled players.

The first holes are played in a wooded and relatively flat valley bottom. The following holes are in an open, spacious area with stunning panoramic and awe-inspiring views of the hilltops and villages in the distance. Every single one of the 18 holes presents a challenge and each of the last nine holes is clearly different from the last hole played. Passionate golfers will enjoy putting their skills to the test and using their entire tee-off repertoire.
