Clube de Golf do SantodaSerra - Above the bay of Machico , where the first Portuguese sailors disembarked. Here, golf and nature live in perfect harmony with sport and the environment. Be it competition or pleasure, the passions of those who play at SantodaSerra are always satisfied. The Machico and Desertas Courses are those usually used for the Madeira Island Open whilst the Serras Course, mildly flat, maintains the same level of play. With four optional tees at each hole, the player is offered various levels of play enabling straightforward, relaxing rounds as well as more challenging ones. Golfing stars, many of whom are Ryder Cup players, praise the excellent quality of fairways and greens. The semi-roughs and roughs are proof of the meticulous care given to course conditions. A true botanical garden, the course is adorned with four beautiful lakes surrounded by trees offering shade from the shimmering Atlantic sunshine.
