“Loved the course”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Played this four times over the course of the week we were there. The clubhouse is a bar/ restaurant called Arola and if very classy. They don't need to charge an additional amount for the driving range, bit naughty make it free with the fund guys! The course itself is in great nick and is a real challenge. Just over 6100 yds off the yellows, never played it off the whites as the yellows was difficult enough. I play off 8 and played just over handicap each day. Alot of hills and semi blind shots up to elevated greens but it really is a great test. The 6th is the signature hole and is gorgeous, although to me the best hole on the course is the 18th. Eagled both by the way! The 9 hole Monastrie course is ok as well but they don't take as much care over that as the 18. Busy but never crowded, and rangers out making sure that play flows- great course, lovely setting, play it.

“Outstanding Course with Classy Facilities”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

8 of us on a golf trip agreed this was one of the finest courses we have played. The condition of the course was excellent, with fabulous views on every hole. Each hole was self contained. THe staff were polite and professional. We will definitely return

“One of the best golf courses I have ever played”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

This Course is outstanding, fast true greens and breathtakingly beautiful, I went around taking pictures on nearly every hole. I have just come back from a trip with a group of 15 guys from Kingswood Golf course where every one of us thought it was fantastic. In contrast we thought Oitavos (one of the top 100 in the world, you cannot be serious) was scruffy and nowhere near as good.
Im booking to go back and play Pena Longa later in the year.
