The golf course at Royal Óbidos Spa & Golf Resort has received its own "royal" treatment thanks to one of the greatest golf legends of all time: Seve Ballesteros. Increasingly turning his hand to the art of golf course design, the celebrated Spaniard created a truly exciting layout for the Silver Coast, living up to the quality of the resort and that of MSF.TUR.IM.
A challenging and beautifully designed course, it sleekly winds its way through the entire resort, creating a framework in which the various properties and facilities reside. Close to the coast, the golfer enjoys great views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Lagoa de Óbidos, Portugal's largest lagoon.
Designed to merge effortlessly into the natural surroundings, whilst making innovative use of the local terrain, the championship course offers something to golfers of all levels. "My philosophy is to not only have a championship course with difficulty for professional players, but also one that can have a big challenge for, and can be enjoyed by, the club golfer," Ballesteros said.
