Palheiro Golf Course is located just east of Funchal, a neighbour of the tropical garden Quinta do Palheiro. The course offers stunning views over the bay and the city. This 18-hole course at 5847 meters from the tee off, par 71, was built in 1993 from the design of Cabell Robinson (father of La Cala on the Costa del Sol, Spain and specializes in drawing lines in hilly terrain). Robinson has really skilfully put the course in the midst of this lush garden with orchids, amaryllis, metre high nicolai and bougainvillea. Over 30,000 exotic trees from around the world adorn the course, which in places has narrow fairways and fast beautiful greens. Palheiro golf course is a perfect golf holiday course, the clubhouse offers panoramic views and an excellent restaurant.
