Oitavos Dunes

2003 Estoril Seniors Open

Only three years after it’s opening, the European Tour arrived at Oitavos Dunes for a Challenge Tour event, confirming the course’s stature as a Championship golf course.

This was the second professional event of the year at Oitavos, and it was now time to give the experienced, past Ryder Cup and Major contenders an opportunity to take on the course. Sam Torrance and Carl Mason were the main attractions.
