“A Must Play”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Of the 4 courses we played, Laguna, Millenium, Old and Pinhal, the Old Course was by far the best and is a "must play" when visiting Vilamoura.

The layout is excellent and the fairways and greens are in first class condition which is no mean feat taking into account the large number of golfers it accommodates 12 months a year.

Low handicappers should play off the white tees to ensure that it is played to its full potential. Mid to high handicappers will find it challenging and a rewarding experience from the yellow tees.

“Oceanico Old Course Golf Vilamoura”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The fist golf course from Vilamoura, made 30 years ago, still a magical golf course, difficult, it simply presents itself and says play me. But you must respect the old lady or simply pay the price. Driver should not be the standard play.

“Lovely course. Great day spent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Very beautiful course. One of the gems in the Algarve. Played with fellow friends. Price wise, above average but therefore the good greens, clubhouse and service. Good deals for buggy and clubs. Nice atmosphere. Dont miss out on this one!

“Best course in VM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Have played here several times over the years and its always good.
It's a tough and demanding layout, but always in good nick.
We played mid Feb '13, and although wet underfoot it was still in good shape.
Staff are helpful and friendly.
You generally need to show h/c Certs.
It's not cheap, but it is the best in VM.
