Having been to Vilamoura,the last three years, it amazes me the quality of the golf courses, and this is another cracker. Sponge like fairways, slick greens beautifully manicured with some stunning properties in the grounds ( check out the infinity pool in the villa off the 2nd) Quinta North was worth every euro. Hard to pick out outstanding holes as there are so many and varied. Played Vale de Lobo last year, but I think this is set out better as the villas arent so oppressive and less numerous.
Our organiser booked through your golf travel and on the ticket it said buggies were included, but on arrival was informed this wasnt the case. The guy said it wasnt the first time this had happened, so be aware if youve booked through them. They honoured the booking after some negotiation and believe me you will need them, as, seems to be a feature of courses in the area, there are some mighty long walks, roads to cross and hills to negotiate on this track.
There were ten of us and we were hoping to play 3,3,4 but were informed two would have to be paired up with another couple. As it happened two lads were paired up with a nice elderly Scottish couple but it could have been a nightmare scenario if it was someone who couldnt play or you didnt get on with.
Stopped for a drink and some food after the round, and if memory serves, I paid about 12 euro for a coronation chicken baguette and fries. Very tasty it was too. Staff were attentive and friendly, and the view over the course from the verandah is lovely.
Were all golf club members, so are serious about our golf, and nobody had a bad word to say about the place. Well worth consideration, although I do understand the Algarve has an embarassment of riches when it comes to golf, but for the deal we got this was fantastic.
