Other than the beach, the big activity here is golf. A fixture in Estoril since 1940, Clube de Golf do Estoril, Avenida da República (tel. 21/468-01-76), lies in the foothills of Sintra, a 3-minute drive from the casino at Estoril. The course, one of the finest in Europe, has played host to international championship matches. The club has a 9-hole course and an 18-hole course. Monday to Friday, nonmembers can play 18 holes for 53€. Saturday and Sunday are reserved for members of the club or guests of the Palácio Estoril, who pay 25€ Monday to Friday and 30€ on weekends.

The most modern complex of tennis courts in town, shared by most of the city's major resorts, is the Clube de Ténis do Estoril, Avenida Conte de Barcelona (tel. 21/466-27-70; www.clubedetenisdoestoril.com). It offers more than 20 tennis courts, including most of the newest in town, and charges between 7.50€ and 12€ per person per hour for play. Within a short walk of the Palácio Estoril, it's open daily from 9am until dusk.
