Recently ranked among the "Rolex World's Top 1000 Golf courses" and now rated in the top 10 courses of Portugal, Santo da Serra Golf Club has been home to the Madeira Open since 1993. Its spectacular location, high above Machico Bay, affords magnificent views of the rocky Atlantic coastline. The original course was designed way back in 1937, but was completely redesigned in 1991 by the renowned Robert Trent Jones, and is split into three distinctive loops of nine, each offering a varying selection of challenges.

Palheiro Golf Course  

18 holes, 6015 metres, Par 71  

Set within the magnificent Palheiro Estate, the course meanders through a pristine environment of maritime pine and botanical woodland embroidered with lush, sub-tropical vegetation. Lying nearly 500m above sea level, there are countless dramatic views of Madeira’s mountainous skyline and the vast Atlantic Ocean to enjoy.

Madeira

Madeira is a unique sub-tropical paradise in the Atlantic Ocean. Distinctly Portuguese yet with a traditional English influence, the island is perfect for a relaxing golfing break. Funchal,the capital where architecture and nature are charmingly combined, surrounded by cliffs to the east and west and steep green mountains to the north. The city’s streets are paved with black and white mosaics and lined by blue-flowered jacaranda trees, making it an ideal city for a delightful stroll.

Useful Information

 Transfer Time 

The transfer time from Funcal Airport to the hotel is approximately 15 minutes, depending on traffic. 

Visa Information 

A full 10-year passport is required valid for at least the duration of your stay. Holders of passports with the inscription “British Citizen” or “European Union” do not require a visa. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct visa, a valid passport and any other travel documents for your holiday.

Handicap certificates are required 

Golfing Schedule:

2 x Palheiro golf course  

Starting Tee Times  

10.00am each day x 5 

Golf Handicaps 

This trip is for golfers with a handicap of 36 or lower for both ladies & gentlemen. 

Please advise our Reservations team of your handicap at the time of booking, alternatively you can add this to the special requirements box on our booking page. If you have a certificate please ensure you take it with you on the trip, this enables the Tour Leader to assess everyone’s ability, so that rounds and competitions can be organised fairly. 

If you are uncertain about these requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to advise you. 

Golf Club Insurance 

Clients will most probably find that their golf clubs are covered on their household insurance policy. Most policies cover a single item such as golf clubs for a period out of the country. However, clients should make very sure that they do have cover. If not, Solo’s Holidays insurance includes cover for golf clubs and bag. 

Buggy, Trolley & Club Hire 

Most golf clubs have these items available for hire, however this is not always the case, so clients would be advised to check with us beforehand if they have any specific requirements. 

Golf club carriage (cost dependant on airline. Please call) 

Golf buggy - €36 per pound 

E-Trolley - €5 per round 

Golf Club Hire - 38 per round 

It is advisable to reserve your requirements in advance to avoid disappointment. All hire charges are payable in resort.  

Golf Footwear 

Golf shoes with soft spikes are required. 

Carriage of Clubs 

We advise you to use a light golf bag when packing your clubs. We suggest you wrap a towel round the neck of the clubs to protect them and stop them rattling around whilst in transit. It is also important to then place the bag and clubs in an outer carrying bag, which can be purchased from any good golf shop. 

What to Wear 

Golf attire during the day. We suggest smart casual for the evenings. 

Gratuities 

We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % add on.
