WIN A GOLF HOLIDAY TO THE MAGICAL ISLAND OF MADEIRA!
October 31, 2019
One lucky Golf News reader will win a fabulous three-night golf break for two on the stunning island of Madeira, with up to five rounds of golf included.
The Madeira archipelago – just a three-and-a-half-hour flight from London – is home to three breathtaking golf courses. Two of the courses – Palheiro Golf and Santo do Serra – are on Madeira itself, while the third, Porto Santo, lies a short hop away on the island of the same name.
The lucky winner will be able to enjoy a game at the stunning Santo da Serra, past host of the Madeira Islands Open, which was redesigned by Robert Trent Jones Snr in 1991 and boasts 27 holes of cliff-top golf, before moving on to Palheiro Golf, a championship-quality venue designed by Cabell B Robinson, which enjoys dramatic views over Funchal.
A short, 20-minute flight – or a two-and-a-half hour cruise – will cover the 27 miles between Madeira and the archipelago’s eastern-most island, Porto Santo, home to magical Seve Balleresteros-designed Porto Santo Golfe, which also hosted the Madeira Islands Open between 2009-2011.
The best way to enjoy these stunning courses is with a Madeira Golf Passport – available from most hotels and golf clubs – which entitles the bearer to five rounds of golf across the two mainland-based tracks. And our lucky winner will receive two.
The prize also includes three nights’ accommodation for two at the Relais & Châteaux five-star hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro, on a bed-and-breakfast basis, two Madeira Golf Passports and the experience of both a cable car and traditional wicker toboggan ride. Flights are not included.
Located within the 200-year-old Palheiro Nature Estate, the 37-room Casa Velha do Palheiro borders the famous Palheiro Gardens and the Palheiro Golf course, while the Palheiro Spa features an array of treatments and beauty therapies.
