16 mates polished off lunch after hacking our way round the lovely golf course- food and staff well above average for a golf course with helpful staff

A good test of golf. Not in A1 condition when we played (mid October ) nevertheless should be included in any serious golfers schedule when they visit Vilamoura

This is now in my top 3 courses. Well maintained with some challenging holes, but I play off 19 and managed to get a decent score. Staff were incredibly friendly and helped make our day very special.

From the first tee to the last, this is really a great golf course. Lined with mature pine trees, accuracy is essential to score well. We were warned prior to our round that some greens were in poor condition and the 13th had a temporary green, but it did not detract from a great round of golf. We were offered... More

We've played the Old Course before - a few times. It's a great layout, testing even the best and plenty of variety in the hole designs. On arrival we were advised that the greens had suffered a disease and were very slow - on one hole was on a temp. We could have our money back or play with a... More

This course is great if you hit your ball straight and have a good Management course plan. Will suit all handicappers but you want to be on your game. Staff and facilities very good. Weather exceptional.

A group of 8 of us had an 8:30 tee off on a warm October morning. From arriving at the course you know you're in a quality place. The view from the first tee been bordered by the Pine trees is amazing and daunting at the same time.The course just gets better and in parts more punishing as you go... More

I played Vilamoura Old course several years ago and rated it one of the best in the Algarve. The lay-out of the holes is still superb, almost reminiscent of some of those tree-lined courses in Surrey, except that the trees here are umbrella pines. However, it is no use having excellent holes if the greens are as bad as the... More
