Oporto Golf Club

Oporto Golf Club

Courses

The origin of this course dates back to 1890, when it was founded by the British residents in Porto, which makes it the second oldest golf course in mainland Europe. If one had to try and describe the Oporto Golf Club in a single word, there would be no doubt about which one to use: tradition. In fact, situated close to the beautiful beaches of Espinho, 17 kilometres to the south of Porto, this is a genuine links course.

Although it is not very long, it nonetheless has a number of obstacles. Its narrow fairways and strong north wind can cause players some difficulty. The most challenging holes are number 4, the most difficult on the course, and number 11, a 494-metre par 5. However, as if to balance out the difficulties of these earlier holes, each of the course´s two halves ends with a fairly accessible par 5, which frequently provides some exciting finishes at the end of tournaments.

The course´s historical flavour is enhanced by the holding of the Skeffington Cup - a tournament that has been played here since 1891 without any interruptions!
