There appears to be a nine hole and an 18 of which you play one or the other and not a mixed combination of the nines. The 10th tee of the 18 is miles from the club house. All 27... read more

Just played Penha Longa again after reviewing it in November and I have to change my opinion on it. We played on a fine day which always helps when reviewing the experience. I have to say that the course is one of the most scenic in the area and has some fantastic holes in it. The day we played was... More

Played there two weeks ago and the course was very wet with balls getting lost due to plugging on the fairway. Buggies very expensive at 55 euros each and with the fairways being so wet we were not allowed to go onto them which made for a very slow round.

This golf course has a wonderful layout but for whatever reason the condition of it in recent years has not been good. I visited a year ago and it was in terrible condition although one could see a lot of work was taking place. One year on it is in a lot better condition but still nowhere near how i... More

This may have been a decent golf course at some point, but it needs serious maintenance. The condition of the fairways, tee boxes, greens and pseudo sand bunkers demand attention. There are some good holes which could be fun to play, but very difficult when fairways are rough and anything green is really weeds. Minimal sand in bunkers. A big... More

Dear yellow1NewJersey We are truly sorry for your disappointment regarding the unpleasant round that did not correspond to your expectations. Penha Longa has been under a very intensive maintenance program in order to increase player satisfaction, including changing the fairways type of grass (into Bermuda). This will allow us to improve on sustainability and ecological step. Overall, course conditions and... More

Our party were 2 couples (HCP 12,12,18,22) Everything about Penha Longa course and facilities give you a feeling of beauty/peacefulness/serenity. A visit to the resort hotel will open your eyes to how a hotel can & should be. The course has a magic little 9 holer as well as the championship 18. The championship course starts with 2 low level... More

A beautiful tree lined course that's no too long. Buggies not required but be warned it is hilly. Ladies changing facilities amazing, with plunge pool, sauna, jacuzzi bath along with the usual stuff. Lovely trendy bar area that's not that cheap wine and soda plus pint of local beer 11.50 euros but fab views watching the sun go down. Great... More

Superb setting and presentation Club house impressive and appeared to have a first class bar and restaurant. Course design great with fabulous views, must is a buggy, it would be a long way to walk. Fabulous elevated greens and tees With the foot flow of traffic on, could do with a little more tlc on the tees and greens. Impressed... More
