Out of the faldo, laguna, victoria, pinhal this is my favourite. Very challenging design and offers the best views, you really need to be able to work the ball both ways to score low here

The Old course is quite superb but be prepared for it to bite you if you stray off line. The course is lined with very unforgiving trees and big scores can easily be made!!

We really enjoyed our visit here. It's very much geared towards the club golfer. No problem finding balls. The greens had a touch of disease for which we were compensated, buggies were reduced from 40 euro to 20 euro which was great. Disease was barely...More

Always a treat to play. An old fashioned golf course (hence the name) just a brilliant design!!! Small fairways , not too longer holes but always a test of patience and distance control, the approaches to the greens have to be very controlled too. We...More

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