Temos, agora, vista para o mar em todos os buracos do campo de golfe o que, a uma altitude de 500 metros, é raríssimo.

Palheiro Golf, Madeira Island – in Golf World´s TOP 200 European Courses.

Palheiro Golf in Madeira has been ranked in the new Golf World´s TOP 200 European Courses list.

Leading golf magazine, Golf World, has recently published its ‘top 200 in Europe’ list – and Palheiro Golf is one of the Portuguese courses featured.
‘This honour is especially rewarding as this year we celebrate our 20th anniversary and is the culmination of much hard work on the course recently.  We now have sea views on every hole of the golf course which at an altitude of 500 meters is very unusual.   Golf architect Cabel Robinson did a fantastic job with this wonderful site and has made full use of the historic setting within the 210 year old Palheiro Estate’, said Jonathan Fletcher Chairman of Palheiro Golf.

The course is now even more visually stunning with the new sea views, the mountain views and  the centennial trees of Palheiro Gardens.

The “TOP 200 Golf Courses in Continental Europe” results of choices and ratings given by golf specialist journalists, being a rank conferred every two years by Golf World magazine.

Madeira Island Hotel – Quinta Casa Velha do Palheiro

We would like to congratulate David and Christina Whippen on their recent marriage at Casa Velha do Palheiro. The happy couple and their guests who travelled from as far away as San Francisco for the special occasion, had the following to say:

‘We were so very fortunate to have our wedding this summer at Casa Velha, and we could not imagine a more unique venue. Madeira is such an incredible backdrop, that all our guests fell in love with it immediately. Casa Velha, with its unbelievably beautiful setting and gardens left everyone speechless, and the chapel would be any bride’s dream. Our reception in amongst the gardens and tea house was idyllic to say the least. The staff, food, and attention to detail made our wedding all that we had hoped and dreamed it would be. Thank you so much to everyone at Casa Velha for a day we will never forget.’
