Home to the Madeira Island Open, Clube de Golf Santo da Serra is simply stunning. A mountainside layout where wide-open holes and tight tree-lined doglegs are played out before the superb vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, this golf course enchants and enthalls from beginning to end. A layout whose location is incomparable to anything else in Portugal, or indeed Europe, and as such should feature very highly on golfers' must-play lists.
