What the club says: The last ever design by world renowned golf professional Seve Ballesteros.
The golf truly is a 'must play' in the Lisbon region of Portugal.
12 holes offer panaramic view of the Atlantic Ocean our to the Berlenga Islands and 6 holes have sublime views of the Óbidos Lagoon - Europes largest saltwater Lagoon.
The golf course is a fascinating lay-out with a mix of 5 par 5 holes, 5 par 3 holes and 10 par 4 holes. 9 lakes are ready to catch stray shots but add to the delight of playing Royal Óbidos.
A golfing expereince that will always be remembered.

Fantastic Seve designed course

Always wanted to play a Seve designed course. This ticked all the boxes, plenty of water and some very challenging holes. Hire a buggy(in advance) as theres some long walks between holes and hilly in places. Take your camera there's some signature holes you'll want to snap.Excellent clubhouse and restaurant.

Óbidos-doesn’t get any easier

Royal Óbidos is a good test of golf and you have to be on your game to score here. Par 5s are tough but Par 3s compensate somewhat. Greens are superb on this well used curse. An enjoyable but testing experience ...... sunshine made it a special treat.

Work in progress?

Obidos seems a golf resort in progress. The clubhouse is underwhelming and the course is good, worth playing but unmemorable. Our round took well over five hours to complete.

Royal Obidous superb in nice conditions

This course is really challenging but was the best I've ever played it in really benign conditions. The fairways were well maintained and the bunkers had loads of sand in them. The greens were really good and the pace of play was nice and quick for 14 holes but the slower pace from there home cost me (or at least that's my excuse). I love the par 5s and was really disappointed with myself on the long 12th hole par 4 Index 2, a hole I normally love, as it takes planning. Staying on fairway is key if you're not a big hitter or a risk taker. The par 3s were lovely to play and I got a bonus of a birdie on the 8th with a two foot putt that at other times might be a gimme. Really enjoyable.

Great course

Played 27 holes on this excellent Seve designed course with his classic 6x3, 6x4, 6x5 layout. Excellent condition, even more so considering it was December, overall a 4* bordering on 5* course. Highly recommended.

Really tough course

This course was tough regardless of the tee box selected. It was really long, taking 5 shots to reach par 5 greens. The course was in really good condition and those that enjoy a challenging championship course will enjoy this course.

This is an exceptional course on a beautiful site. The hotel looks as if there is more to be done and houses on the complex still need completion. Staff were friendly and facilities were superb and good value.

This is a Seve course and it is a monster. My wife and I enjoyed every minute of it. Some of the holes take your breath away and the whole course was in great condition. The club house and facilities are excellent and the staff were more than up to the task. I am sure this is going to become one of the best courses to play in Portugal. I have been lucky enough to play The Victoria and the Old Course in Villamoura but I think this course is better.

A fantastic course which should always be on someone's agenda.it is a challenging course but really enjoyable. Weather really added to the enjoyment. I loved the par 3s (I played them well) but I found the par 4s and Par 5s a tough struggle on occasion. Really enjoyable though.

This is an excellent course. I have a villa on Bom Sucesso and much prefer this challenge. The staff are freindly, the driving range is the best on the Silver coast and the views are wonderful. The course is challenging for a golfer of 24 handicap such as myself but executing a shot over water landing on the green is such a delight.
