Play the world’s best new golf course at Praia D’El Rey
Golfers can enjoy outstanding value on two of Europe’s top golf 50 courses when they stay at the five-star Praia D’El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort this spring – including playing the world’s best new golf course.
Situated an hour north of Lisbon on Portugal’s magnificent Silver Coast, West Cliffs Golf Links has taken the golfing world by storm since opening last summer and forms part of Praia D’El Rey’s new stay-and-play packages, with four-night, three-round breaks available from only €410 per person.
As well as playing West Cliffs – already the winner of numerous top accolades including the title of ‘World’s Best New Course’ at the 2017 World Golf Awards – guests have the opportunity to play Praia D’El Rey’s other 18-hole championship course, which is also ranked among the top layouts in Europe.
All packages, which are based on two people sharing a room, feature bed-and-breakfast accommodation in a garden or golf-view room in the resort’s five-star hotel, with complimentary transfers to West Cliffs also included.
The first Cynthia Dye golf course in Portugal, West Cliffs has been created over 200 hectares of natural landscape and rolling sand dunes. Tipped to become the country’s new number one, the spectacular par-72 clifftop links offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean from each hole.
Complementing it is Praia D’El Rey’s 18-hole championship course which, designed by Cabell Robinson in 1997, is set amidst a combination of extensive pine forests and undulating dunes, and features spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlengas Islands beyond.
As well as golf, Praia D’El Rey boasts an extensive array of world-class sports, leisure and accommodation facilities including a Marriott hotel, a wide selection of villas, a tennis academy, a luxury spa and health club and numerous watersports and restaurants.
Guests have a choice of five restaurants to choose from, all serving fresh and authentic produce that Portugal is famous for, while the comprehensive range of therapies and treatments on offer at the Kalyan Spa promise to restore energy and balance to the body after a day on the fairways.
