    Golfing Tradition!

    The Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course is the ideal place for anyone wanting to combine golf with relaxation and tranquility. Opened in 1936, with a course designed by the Scottish specialist Philip Mackenzie Ross, the Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course was renovated in 2010 by Cameron Powell, who made it even more challenging. An ideal way to experience the magical setting of the Vidago Palace Hotel.

    The charisma of a challenging course

    The Belle Époque spirit of the magnificent Vidago Palace Hotel and the greenery of the Centenary Park that surrounds it are more than inspiring for golf lovers. First opened a little less than a century ago, the Vidago Palace Hotel golf course recently underwent a significant revamp, but its history, heritage and imposing presence remain unaffected, despite contemporary touches. While maintaining the identity of the original, the new 18-hole, par 72 course can now play host to international competitions. The view is fabulous and the fauna and flora of Vidago Park are just some of the charms of a "former spa hotel” from whose springs burble the famous thermal waters of Vidago.

    Before it reopened in 2010, the Vidago Palace Hotel already had a golf course – a classic Mackenzie Ross 9-hole layout built in 1936. Totally refurbished by the famous duo Cameron & Powell, the new Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course now offers a round of 18 holes, with a length of 6,308 metres (par 72), that has ambitions to claim an increasingly prominent position on the list of the most famous international golf courses. Its characteristics include raised tees and greens, and bunkers and greens strategically sited so that perfect vision is called for to judge differences in elevation.

    As a result, the Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course is a delight and a challenge for even the most experienced of players. It is a course of striking contrasts, all with a particular respect for the natural surroundings. Distinctive features of this course include the support walls of all the tees, which are made of local stone, and the century-old trees, almost all of which have been preserved.

    Play with maximum comfort


    The Vidago Palace Hotel golf course offers a variety of services to enhance and complement the playing experience. These include a driving range for 30 players, putting green, chipping area and practice bunker, pro shop, restaurant and bar.

    The Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course also offers private lessons and hires out buggies, trolleys and clubs. To enjoy this experience to the fullest, you can opt to stay at the Vidago Palace Hotel, which offers an ambience of elegance and an exceptional thermal spa.
