One of the best courses I've played in Portugal. This mature course has tree lined fairways, which will catch any wayward shots, great fairways and true, fast greens. The whole course is immaculately kept, you can play your shots and make your putts with confidence....More

If you find something to dislike at this place you need to take a long hard look at yourself and check reality. Unbelievably brilliant course for anyone of any age, sex or ability - even Man United fans!

A must play in the Algarve, a truly classic design, well manicured, easy check in and friendly starter. Course in superb condition (as always), hit it straight and away from the trees and you will be fine, don't, and a big score awaits.

Super course. Always a challenge. Need to be straight off the tee as a lot of tree trouble for wayward drives. Greens a little slow in comparison to other courses played in Portugal

Superb course and facilities. Only minor observation is the par 3's 10th +16th are very similar in design and distance. I would love to play it again someday 👍

Yes, plenty of buggies, but I would recommend reserving in advance. 40 Euros a buggie.
