Porto Santo also has a golf course, inaugurated on the 1st of October 2004 and designed by Severiano Ballesteros, the former Spanish world champion golfer. It includes two 9-hole circuits with par 72, illuminated pitch and putt course, plus a clubhouse, putting green and driving range. This is a course that can be played all year round.
