Madeira lies in the Atlantic Ocean nearly 1000 km (621 miles) from Lisbon.
Lapped by the mild waters of the gulf stream, this verdant, sub-tropical island enjoys warm, comfortable summers and short, mild winters that make it an enchanting and appealing all-year-round holiday destination.
A precipitous mountain landscape of spectacular grandeur characterises the island’s geography. Along the coast, rolling hills of terraced vineyards and fruit plantations are flecked with brilliant flashes of exotic flora. The land is undulating, green and fertile, much like the Palheiro Estate where Palheiro Golf is located.
At nearly 500 m (1640 ft) above sea level, the views from the fairways and the Clubhouse terrace are truly impressive.
And the fact that the golf course fringes the five-star Madeira Island Hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro and the world-renowned Palheiro Gardens makes it a truly magnificent golfing venue.
