Great layout and a real challenge. Recent wet weather made the course extremely tough but surprisingly the greens were very firm and quick.

We only played the Championship, but it stands up to a good golfer. We played in rain so it was wet, yet the greens remained very true and lost only a slight bit of speed. We did not want to miss this course so we played in the rain in about 2:45 both of us are proficient (M 5 hcp, F 14 hcp). The course could use a little thinning of the trees but it and the Henry Cotton Grille at le Meridien makes for a very good day.

Championship Course is challenging. The 9 hole Resort Course is less challenging but no less enjoyable for it.

Well its just not as good as some of the competition, lots more on offer at much better prices, i.e. Palmares, Monte Rei, Faldo at Alcantarilha, to name a few
