The most attractive hole on Quinta da Marinha is number three, a Par 4 of 334 metres sloping down towards the green with the sea as a backdrop. The fourth hole of a Par 3 requires a very demanding shot from the tee for the ball to cross a gap and reach a wide and shallow green. The tenth hole has a green entirely surrounded by water which again demands accuracy. The fifth hole has several protective bunkers surrounding an elevated green and water to carry. The fourteenth hole is played over a bank that presents the golfer an interesting challenge in the choice of club and type of stroke.
