The scenery at the Oitavos Dunes Course is one of a kind. It’s a mixture of auburn trees and desert terrain. There are countless shrubs that threaten to hide your golf ball if you’re not careful—as well as bunkers that will do the same. Watch out especially for the tricky slopes, which seem to incline one way, but often mislead players with their odd shapes.
While the ocean view from the course may attract you to play there, remember that this also contributes a wind challenge on most days. This however only adds to the eagerness of some to reach a par score on the course.
There aren’t as many trees on the course as you may be used to on others. However, there is a fair amount of rough provided by the shrubbery, natural beach sand, and gravel-laden dunes. These provide a robust challenge that will have even the best of golfers strategizing more carefully.
