Opened in 2001, and designed by Arthur Hills/Steve Forrest and Associates, Oitavos Dunes preserves a unique habitat of umbrella pines, sand dunes and coastal scrub, where the dramatic Portuguese coast meets the Atlantic Ocean. There are no water features at Oitavos Dunes precisely because the property rests along a gently sloped plateau, high enough that every hole has a long view of the Atlantic and the Sintra Mountains to the north.
Hills/Forrest didn’t merely route Oitavos Dunes in the “links style” (i.e., a continuous 18-hole loop). The architects allowed the dunes to dictate what became a thrilling, non-traditional sequence of holes, each outfitted with the canny green contours, comely-but-penal green and fairway bunkering, and the classic design strategies for which Hills/Forrest is renowned.
