Scenic mountainous landscapes, stunning wildlife and fabulous food
There are two golf courses in Madeira, both set in fabulous surroundings, and both worth playing more than one round. Palheiro course offers beautiful views over Funchal Bay and out to sea and the Ilhas Desertas, and is only some minutes drive from the town of Funchal. This Madeira golf course has achieved the impossible and allows the golfer to play golf on a course carved between the thick exotic vegetation of Madeira and a pine forest. Green fees are €90. Santo de Serra, the second golf course in Madeira, has three 9-hole options and green fees start at €55. There is also a golf course on Madeira’s sister island of Porto Santo.
