Happy first birthday for West Cliffs Golf Links

donderdag 12 juli 2018

West Cliffs Golf Links may still be in its infancy but it has plenty to celebrate on its first birthday.

Situated less than an hour north of Lisbon on the Silver Coast, the par-72 course has welcomed golf players from no fewer than six continents and 34 different countries during this first year. This included visitors from the US, China, South Korea, Brazil, South Africa and New Zealand, amongst many others. In the past twelve months the golf course saw 20,000-plus rounds being played.

Francisco Cadete, director of golf at West Cliffs Golf Links, said: 'It really has been an exceptional first 12 months for West Cliffs, and if the next few years are anything like as good then we are in for a very exciting time.
'The feedback that we have received from all parts of the golfing world has been amazing, and the great thing for us is that the course is going to get even better as it matures and reaches its full potential.'

Managed by Praia D'El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort, West Cliffs has been created over 200 hectares of natural landscape and rolling sand dunes, and offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean from each hole.

West Cliffs is Cynthia Dye's first golf course design in Portugal. The course has won widespread global praise and claimed a number of top accolades since opening last summer. These include being named as the 'World's Best New Golf Course' at the 2017 World Golf Awards, being rated second in the Top 100 Golf Courses website's updated list of the best courses in Portugal and being ranked 25th in Golf World's benchmark list of the 'Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe 2017/18'.

Complementing West Cliffs is Praia D'El Rey's 18-hole championship course which, designed in 1997, is set amidst a combination of extensive pine forests and undulating dunes and is also rated among Europe's top courses.
