Went on Golf holiday and played 3 rounds. Lovely course. Hole 8 is very difficult one. Excellent service, well looked after Greens and extended fairway. Would go back again.

One of the best courses in the Algarve,,,, a must-play course for any serious golfers. Very friendly staff, top quality greens and fairways, excellent variety of shots required. Dislike - wasn't able to play it enough !

Fantastic greens and a wonderful corse but needs some attention to the teeing areas. Dona Filipa hotel was a disaster being refurbed but needs a lot more.

This is possibly the best course I have played in the Algarve area. It has some super holes with a wide variety of shots required. The fairways have recently been sanded with a fertiliser mix meaning we played preferred lies but you have to understand the maintenance must be done at some time. A slight breeze makes some holes really... More

Just played San Lorenzo again, twice. We've been coming there for about 8 years now and we really like the course. But this year we were not so happy! I wouldn't call the covering of the course grass: there's hardly any grass to be seen. Extremely dry and quite bald. Something really has to be done there, as this is... More

Seasonal work going on on the fairways at the moment but it does not detract from you enjoyment of the course.

Fantastic mix of holes, some quality risk and reward holes. Favourites were 6, 7, 8, 17 & 18. Not a course where you can grip it and rip it, a lot of course management needed so lots of irons off tees if you are not hitting your driver straight.

A must be played course, however because its so good and well laid out there never seems to be much work done to it and seems to be getting tired. In need of pepping up.

Staying at Dona Filipa Hotel we played 3 rounds in early March. Superb greeting and club management with very pleasant personnel (as previously). Sadly tees are in a tatty condition, and there is extensive sanding of both fairway areas, and, virtually all green approaches. You need to prefer lies, and approach shots are affected. Traps and greens in good condition... More
