About West Cliffs Golf Links


Located less than an hour north of Lisbon on Portugal’s magnificent Silver Coast, West Cliffs Golf Links has been designed by Cynthia Dye ASGCA, from the world-renowned golf architecture company Dye Designs Group, and opened this summer.

The first Dye golf course in Portugal – and only the fourth in Europe – the spectacular par-72 clifftop links has been created over 200 hectares of natural landscape, rolling sand dunes and coastal vegetation, and offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean from each hole.

Construction work on West Cliffs began in February last year, with Dye and her team working in close collaboration with the local government to ensure minimum disruption to the environment, and to create a harmonious and sustainable links in an enviable location.

Fitting seamlessly into its natural surroundings, the layout measures a testing 7,003 yards in length but, thanks its modern design and a choice of several sets of tees, it guarantees accessibility to golfers of all abilities.

Complementing the West Cliffs course is the golf academy that provides the ideal atmosphere for players to warm-up, learn and improve, while a stylish and eco-friendly clubhouse offers guests exclusive panoramic views of the course and the Atlantic Ocean beyond from three sides of the glass-fronted building.
