The Mid Atlantic Links

Santa Maria, Azores

Faldo Design is creating an 18-hole, championship-standard resort golf course on the island of Santa Maria in the Azores.

Faldo's thoughts:

“The course that we are working on in Santa Maria has the potential to be the most exciting new project in the Azores. Appropriately named ‘the Mid Atlantic Links’, the site gently pitches and rolls towards the ocean, where the property hugs a section of dramatic cliff-tops that offer stunning views across the Atlantic. Our layout makes great use of the undulating terrain and incorporates a series of ancient stone walls that weave their way across the site. These walls will help to define both the character of the project and some of the strategic qualities of the golf course; I am confident that the finished layout will offer players of all abilities a stimulating round of golf amid truly thrilling surroundings.”
