“Decent but nothing special”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Completely overpriced for quality of course. For the money was expecting lush springy fairways to hit deep divots but have played on nice fairways for far less. Greens were in great condition. Its not the toughest of courses.

“Super course, but damn those trees!!!”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

This course is super. Some great holes and lots of character. Nice greens, although small!! Course wasn't in the best condition but it still beats a rainy day up north! Very picturesque and gorgeously tree lined, to look at that, but not when you are stuck behind them!!

Great Clubhouse and practice facilities. And the GPS cart is good.

Would recomend playing for sure and at 150E for two players with cart, for the Algarve it is good value.

“Great course spoilt by obnoxious marshalls”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

This is not run by Oceanico (like most of the area couses) It's a lovely course and in good condition but some of the staff there need a course in visitor management. Very unhelpful and full of their own importance.

“Best of the Pestans group.”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

Stayed and played here last October. 27 holes so a different combination every day. Superb golf courses and equally good facilities. The Golf Range is excellent value and never too crowded. Relax afterwards in the beautiful Club House/Veranda. Great food and very good value. (Service was a bit slow but it was high season and we were not in a hurry anywhere anyway!!
