This course was beautiful. Nice layout, well maintained--but the wind! I guess I needed to play it to fully understand European golf? The wind was so severe that it turned hooks into 100 yard slices. It blew our balls sometimes well in excess of 100...More

The club's facilities and the attached hotel are both fabulous. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the course. After the first 3 holes, the course deteriorated badly. It was scruffy and unkempt - such a disappointment in view of the spectacular background scenery.More

Great condition and well maintained. Both the 18 and 9 hole courses. Buggies available to rent which do come in handy for the 18 holes! Thoroughly enjoyable game by all!

I would highly recommend this golf course. It's in a beautiful location among the forested hillside outside Lisbon. The course is very well kept and a good test for any keen golfer. Excellent clubhouse and top class customer service throughout.

There appears to be a nine hole and an 18 of which you play one or the other and not a mixed combination of the nines. The 10th tee of the 18 is miles from the club house. All 27 holes are great to play....More
