Quinta da Marinha Oitavos Golfe lies within the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. It is the heart of the Quinta da Marinha, being developed by Miguel Champalimaud. Located 30 mins from Lisbon airport. It is set among pine woods and reforested dunes, in an area of great natural beauty, surrounded by the Sintra mountains to the North and by the Atlantic Ocean to the South and West.

There is no better description of the golf course than the one made by the Architect Arthur Hills: "Our goal was to create one of the finest golf experiences in Europe, all within the elegant natural and historical framework inherent to the Quinta. Opportunities such as this are rare. We felt that with a site so rich in innate beauty, each hole must fit ideally in the setting, thus assuring a natural appearance with variety and charm.

At Oitavos Golfe we are blessed with three distinct landscape forms; forested area (with the most beautiful umbrella pine trees in the world), dunes land, and the more open, coastal transition areas. The course has been carefully routed to take advantage of all three zones, featuring all of their distinct characteristics.

The layout is similar to a links course in Scotland or Ireland. From start to finish you have views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Hills of Sintra are distinguishable from every hole.
