Leonard review

Arriving at the course at West Cliffs you are immediately impressed by the beautiful clubhouse. It is very functional but really beautiful at the same time. The views from the clubhouse on the 10th hole, putting green and driving range and the ocean are breathtaking. The pro-shop is immediately on the left with plenty souvenirs and clothing to choose from. The high ceiling combined with wood gives everything a very cozy feeling. The course designed by Cynthia Dye is really amazing. Just one of those few courses that is incomparable with other courses. The first hole might look a bit scruffy due to the construction in the horizon, but at hole 2 – a testing par-3 with a wicket green – the course really kicks in. The third is a par-4 with water on the entire right side and into the wind both times I played it. Number 4 is a testing par-3 where the green is so undulated that you really need good distance control to stay on the green. Holes 6 and 7 are two par-5’s side by side, one out and the other in. no. 6 usually plays with the wind and hole 7 into the wind, which can make it a tough nut to crack. On 7, at around 300 meters, there is a huge waste area over the entire width of the fairway at the bottom of a downhill stretch. That didn’t feel fair to me because when you hit a great drive carrying the ridge your ball will end up here. But maybe if you can hit such a drive you should move back a tee box. Talking about that, on this course you should really be on the right tee box. On many holes at West Cliffs you need quite some carry to reach the fairway and the rough is very punishing. If you look for your ball you’ll probably find several others, except your own. Hitting out of the rough is almost impossible. But then again, the course and its surroundings are so beautiful that you will gladly loose a couple of balls. Hole 9 is another gem where you are tempted to cross the water as far left as possible to shorten your approach. Walking to the tee of hole 10 again you are bombarded with the visual scenery that makes this course so special. Your tee shot is aimed straight in the direction of the ocean (and often the wind). The green lush fairways are surrounded by the rough. Hole 11 is a par-4 with great views of the sea. The next hole no. 12 is a par-3 that is probably the easiest of the par-3’s on this course. Hole 13 and 14 are a par-5 and -4 lying next to each other,13 going uphill and 14 playing down. I just couldn’t get enough of the views at West Cliffs. Especially from the tee of hole 14. Just before the green of hole 14 there is a big waste area mount that blocks the green. Some people in our group loved it, but I’m not so fond of it. I like the idea to block the green but maybe I would cover it with grass, it seemed a bit artificial this way. Hole 15 is a short par-5, fairway going left to right and slightly uphill. Depending on the position of the pin and the wind this can definitively be an eagle opportunity. I hit 3 wood, hybrid and holed the 20-foot putt for eagle! Will definitely not forget this hole. Hole 16 is an incredibly tough par-3 especially from the back tee. The green is so tiny from back there and you have about the size of a bath towel where you can land the ball. Hole 17 is a sharp dog-leg right were you need some length and a gutsy drive to shorten your approach. Hole 18 has a beautiful view from the tee. Water on the right and a semi blind shot down, great finish! Staying at the Praia del Rei Marriot and the possibility to play at Praia del Rei, West Cliffs and Royal Obidos courses is amazing. The resort is just an hour away from Lisbon Airport and in that area are even more high rated courses. The Portugese hospitality, great food and excellent rooms are a joy to experience. The scenery is amazing with beautiful cliffs and beaches. The historical town Obidos is a great place to visit so non-golfing partners can also have a great time.
