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.

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,...More

Oceanico are a great company and I love their courses, but wow the Old Coirse was terrible! Greens were so slow!! The rest if the course was good but not worth it! Go play the Faldo or Victoria. Oceanicos best in my opinion!
