My husband and I loved playing this course. It is tight -- lots of trees. But delightful. They are a bit pricier than the Millenium course and charge you for range balls!

Why cant we have golf course like this in the U K? Had one round of golf this time and last time I had 4 or more. Wish I could have stayed longer as my love of Vilamoura increases each time I go there. Fantastic Holiday yet again!!!!

An excellent layout but the greens had just been slashed, the fairways left long and the tee boxes needed mowing

If you can afford it book and play there. This is a top quality course but testing. They will sting you for the buggies but it is worth it. I have played nearly all of the courses on the Algarve and apart from Quinta this is the best.

Played here early October 2012.

A superb course which is mature and challenging.

The staff were all friendly and helpful.

The course itself was in first class condition. I must admit, the good weather made the round even more enjoyable.

We ate at the course after our golf. Food was adequate and reasonable.

One of my favourite courses in Vilamoura.

Recommended to all golfers!!
