It’s not a standard policy that prebooked teetimes can’t be changed.

Jukka Hakkila 2023-11-29
Quite nice cource bunkers half done Greens good. The club hire again all too high!!!. You have to bring your own clubs for sure

Dan Hartley 2023-07-19
Lovely views, interesting holes, and friendly staff in the clubhouse..Condition of tees and greens below average.

Jeremy Corbin 2023-06-04
Very nice course. Greens true and undulating. Great views. Course was very quiet in May. Courtesy bus is a money saver if you don't have a car but they time your pickup so you arrive at the corse about 10 mins before your tee time so only a quick practice putt if you're lucky!

Everything was ok, stuff friendly and helpful, only thing is the booking could be mor efficient, 2x4 slow groups in front and a few 2 groups behind them. So we played after the 3rd hole with the 2 in front. There was no marshal on the course. Minus for the Tee positions,, mostly yellow was on blue, and the bunkers were in bad conditions. It was hard rain 4 days ago, but they did not work on the bunkers since there. Greens excellent for this conditions.

Ian Finlay 2022-06-14
Enjoyable as always

Sue Harris 2022-05-16
Staff are so helpful - recommend a buggy!!

Pauli Nuutinen 2022-04-28
Everything else worked pretty well but the round itself was slow 5 hours 15 minutes. The reception very friendly.

Michael jonea 2022-04-26
Excellent Golf Course and facilities

Jan Montell 2021-10-17
Mediocre condition in general, greens good, very slow round and no Marshall.

Thomas Hawker 2021-07-19
The staff was very friendly, and the views were fantastic. However, the golf course was very dry, the greens were ok. The sand bunkers, well, let’s just say there was no sand in them. The layout was funky, and I understand that this is a golf course on the top and side hill of a mountain on an island.

A tricky, challenging course in a beautiful setting.

Petteri Pietilä 2020-12-20
Very friendly service. Nice course layout. Good condition greens. Overall condition mediocre.

Jochen Happe 2020-12-17
Golf course is absolutely fantastic. Great views, wonderful nature, greens are difficult to reach in regulation ;-). Not 10 points because of not available driving range. The drive ways for the buggy show deep holes and you can not drive at the fairway ´s so using a buggy does not really make sense.

Thomas Wachtel 2020-03-16
Very nice and challenging course; beautiful landscape with great views; friendly staff at the pro shop and restaurant; some places between the holes need a repair.

Wieder eine schöne Runde, heute waren die Greens einiges langsamer, als vor zwei Tagen....

The course was again very nice. But the trolleys are too bad to be paid for.

Elisabeth Brandy 2020-01-04
Very friendly and good service!

Pasi Heikkinen 2019-12-12

First the positives: nice facilities, warm welcome, not busy (1pm Friday) and amazing views. Not an easy course when you don’t know it, plenty of blind shots and hidden hazards. Not a long course, accuracy pays! Now the not so good stuff: some bare fairways, no sand at all in some bunkers and greens really not up to standard. Shame really, this could be a really great golfing experience.

Peter McFarlane 2019-08-17
Great layout which you have to pick your way round. Course guidebook very useful. Greens had been worked on so not at their best but still a very enjoyable and helpful staff.

May Hughes 2019-05-13
Quite delightful golf course. Staff all very helpful. We will most certainly return in the future

H.-G. Geratz 2019-04-01
Alles war in Ordnung! Vielen Dank für Ihre Mühe!

Thomas Augustin 2019-03-15
Der Platz ist sehr abwechslungsreich, Fairways teilweise trocken, durch die Schräglagen ist auch ein guter Schlag nicht immer gut im Ergebnis. Durch die Höhendifferenz mit Trolley nur bei guter Kondition empfehlenswert. Sehr nette Gastronomie, super Aussicht auf Funchal

Werner Killmaier 2019-02-26
great views. interesting holes. The cours is on foot very exhausting.

Herzog Peter 2019-02-20
We had a.very slow flight in front of us which resultet in total of more the 5 1/2 hours which is not akzeptable. Course, yand the rest was very good.

Arnhold August 2019-02-14
Alles sehr gut organisiert.

Very easy checking in and course was very quiet. Course is very hilly and some players may need a buggy to do 18 holes. Tricky layout and need to hit irons off some tees. Greens were undulating and will be easier if you play a few times. Bunkers were not good. Overall interesting course with good layout and great views of Funchal and the sea

Martin Wisdom 2018-11-15
Crazy price to pay for 18 holes of golf - especially in foggy wet conditions - price for buggy far too high - shame enjoyed the course and clubhouse

Transfers to and from the Golf course were on time and worked well. The staff at Palheiro were very friendly and helpful. We had a buggy and were glad we did, some of the hills are very long and steep. Enjoyed the golf but were unlucky to have a 3 ball ahead all beginners so we were waiting most shots. The round took 5 hours.

Dr. Frank Kopperschmidt 2018-04-14
A very good golf course, not easy walking - pull trolleys make no sense so best carry your bag or have a buggy . 75 % of the holes are first class, but there are some weak ones near the derelict prison for instance. All in all a recommendable holiday course.

Andrew Stevenson 2018-04-11
Very enjoyable; course in good condition and greens very good.

Mark Good 2018-03-26
Pickup on time. good

Challenging course but enjoyable. Long walks green to tee is walking.

josephine wyss 2018-02-21
Very friendly reception. Nice golf course, unfortunately a bit wet at this time of the year. On the whole, we enjoyed our play there. Food is also good at the clubhouse

Ingrid Hoeller 2018-02-19
Very kind stuff. Place is hilly and close. Not easy to play. Buggy recommended.

Ingrid Hoeller 2018-02-19
Very kind staff. Buggy recommended.

Simo Peho 2018-02-12
Little bit too much blind fairways for long driving players. Better weather than Santo da Serra.

Ingrid Hoeller 2018-02-10
Everything was perfect. Very kind and friendly staff.

Carole Drury 2018-01-14
Welcomed to the club and expected. Challenging course but helped by having a buggy. Nice bar/food area. Outstanding views over Funchal but access to the club is quite difficult being very steep

magnus af trolle 2017-12-29
Beautiful golf Course! Good service but the condition of fairways are very poor and dry!

Christopher DREW 2017-12-26
Friendly welcome, greens OK, some fairways are poor,but they're working on them, so I am sure they will improve.

Päivi Lepola 2017-12-22
Golf course with amazing view, but fairways in poor condition. Staff friendly.

Kai 2017-12-20
Nice design of the course. A little bit dry.

Christopher DREW 2017-12-19
Very warm welcome and the receptionist was excellent advising us of the buggy deal. You certainly needed one! Greens were very good,but fairways needed attention,but to be fair they were hollow tining as we played.

Feierabend 2017-11-17
It was a nice course. The prices for the driving range and the halfway house are quite high!

john bakker 2016-11-02
Fantastic staff. Great transfer driver. Everyone was very accommodating. Great looking golf course with fantastic views and memorable holes. Greens and fairways were below par but very playable. Clubhouse has a great bar with the best views.

Pauli Nuutinen 2016-05-31
Challeging course, somewhat dry faiways, greens not in good condition. Service at clubhouse very good.

Alan palmer 2016-05-27
Both courses are fantastic , and all staff are very accommodating as we had to swop days of booked golf due to bad weather in santo da Serra. Great holiday and golf , thank you.
