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.

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.

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.’

Após o almoço realizou-se a entrega de prémios, presidida pela Dra. Maria Stangl, Capitã do Clube Palheiro Golfe, o Eng.º Pedro Ferreira, em representação do Presidente da Direcção do mesmo Clube, Dr. Fernando Couto, e os patrocinadores do evento.

Madeira Wine Festival
From September 1st to 8th
Part of the annual tourist entertainment calendar, the Madeira Wine Festival is celebrated every year by the time of the grape harvest in tribute to century-old precepts of the vine arts that hark back to the time when the island was first inhabited.
This festivity is intensely experienced in the parish of Estreito de Câmara de Lobos, a place where locals and visitors take part actively in this ethnographic ritual full of lively entertainment (grape harvesting parties, floats with grape pickers, the re-enactments of regional customs and ways, etc.).
On the other hand, various allegorical events are held in downtown Funchal in a party atmosphere where music and regional gastronomy are also part of the show.
Come and discover a little bit of this archipelago’s history and treat yourself to this nectar of the gods!
