The Dunas Course at Terras da Comporta, designed by David McLay Kidd, is scheduled to open this summer and is accepting tee times starting June 1.
The course near the Atlantic Ocean, the first in mainland Europe by Kidd, began in 2010. Development was delayed for a decade as the property changed hands, and new owner Vanguard Properties acquired Terras da Comporta in 2019. The development is also planning a second course to be named Torre designed by José María Olazábal and Sergio Garcia.
Kidd – a Scottish architect famed for his design of the original and namesake course at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon in addition to other highly regarded layouts around the world – restarted construction on the the par-71, 7,168-yard Dunas Course in 2019 just south of Lisbon.
“What David McLay Kidd has been able to build here is exceptional and a true example of world-class golf course design,” Rodrigo Ulrich, director of golf at Terras da Comporta, said in a media release announcing the planned opening. “We are so excited about the launch and cannot wait for golfers to enjoy the exceptional on- and off-course experience on offer at Terras da Comporta from this summer onward.”
