Palheiro Golf is delighted to announce that Yudik Gold are now sponsoring Palheiro Golf’s bunkers.
Jonathan fletcher President of Palheiro Golf explains ‘Sand shots are notoriously difficult for the average golfer. With our new gold dust in the bunkers we have found that the lighter texture of the particle translates into a simpler shot. During the experimental phase many of our guests were amazed at the difference and how much easier bunker shots were. It is great to be the first resort course in the world making this change from sand to gold dust and we are sure that many top end resorts will follow.’
Palheiro Estate is delighted to announce their continued support of the Madeira Film Festival for 2015.
Jonathan Fletcher director of Palheiro Estate explains; ‘this year for the first time we have created exciting packages, whereby guests at the Casa Velha do Palheiro or Palheiro Village will be able to participate in many of the activities going on during the week. This includes a visit to the magical Laurissilva forest to see a show, tickets to all films, invitations to the opening cocktail at Belmond Reid’s as well as to the Gala dinner.’
Also this year for the first time there will be a Golf day at Palheiro Golf on 28th April for film makers and our guests. This will be a unique opportunity to meet some of the filmmakers and play golf with them.

EN: Madeira Flower Festival
Floral species originating in many parts of the world bloom in Madeira, as the island meets specific climatic conditions that allow species from both tropical and cold regions to flourish.
The Flower Festival is also a cultural event. Tradition is particularly associated with the event, whether through the performances of folk groups, or through the construction of the beautiful floral carpets. At the same time, homage is paid to flowers at the magnificent Flower Exhibition and the city is animated with music concerts and variety shows.

You may notice there has been much pruning work going on in the Camellia Avenue, also along the west side of the main garden and along the drive (remnants of the fire in July 2012).

The Gardens are open every day between 09.00 – 17.30
