Everything at Rio Real works. Great management, nice clubhouse and well maintained course - with some very challenging holes

please get some sand in your bunkers !! They look like bunkers but many only have a few Mms of sand then clay !!! I airmailed at least four shots as the club bounced up into the middle of the ball.

We play this course every year and the only criticism ever has been slow play. The course is great and it is kept in very good condition - some really challenging holes. We will be back again next year.

Our fourball has been playing Rio Real for 12 years now. Still an excellent course in great condition, In particular the 7th, 8th and 11th are superb holes. Bit pricey but still worth it for real treat.

I have been all over Europe and played on many courses, and this is up with one of the best. The course is in excellent condition and is obviously maintained at a very high standard which is one of the reasons I've enjoyed the course so much. The greens ran very smoothly and I have no complaints about the condition.... More

Great course which you can play regardless of your ability in that higher handicappers will not score well but should keep most of their balls and enjoy the challenge. Greens were in excellent condition and the course was not too busy. They are doing a bit of maintenance on the course but that only affected one hole. Had a problem... More

The course was in good shape (in Dec 2013); not many people there and we enjoyed a wonderful round of golf. The restaurant serves great food at a decent price

Not so easy courses for us, but we managed. The buggies cannot drive on the course, so at the end one has to walk a lot anyway. People having difficulties with knees and walking, will find this course tiring.

Fantastic golf course with great views. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to play here. Reasonably priced for what you are playing. A really great course.
