What the club says: Designed by English architect Frank Pennink, Vilamoura Old Course was opened in 1969 and was completely refurbished in 1996, when several improvements were introduced and a new clubhouse built. The oldest of the Vilamoura courses, its tree lined fairways and exemplary greens make this layout one of the best in the area. The course is renowned for the way the designer has skilfully utilised the natural contours of the land, whilst maintaining the native vegetation, consisting mainly of pine trees. Vilamoura Old is a track that will definitely linger long in the memory of visiting golfers.

classic tree line feel
Class course in very good condition. Tree line formation made the fairways very tough to hit. The greens in great condition, 1 downfall was the amount of divots on the fairway, no one seemed to be replacing the divots! Regardless of that would love to play it again.

Great course but tough
Second time playing the Old Course, as good as first time but still a tough course to play. Friendly clubhouse. Course in great condition, many treelined holes, need to be straight and plot you way round to score well. Greens fast and true. A must play if staying in Vilamoura as one of the better Oceanico courses.

The best in Portugal?
For me this is the best course in the Faro area and perhaps the best in Portugal. To me this is what all Portuguese courses should be like, tree lined, beautiful fairways, with lovely greens and a real sense of history. Some of our group thought that around the course (paths and tracks) was a bit shabby, but to be honest I didn't notice, I was having too much fun!

(Round played: May 2017 - Score: 110 Handicap: 24.3), can be tight and not the easiest for the first game, paths are extremely slippery when wet but once course dry, they are fine

A very attractive course indeed. Tree lined fairways. A decent score can be achieved by a high handicapper if you play sensible golf. If you stray off the fairway you are likely to be amongst trees but can typically find your ball. The secret is to play back onto the fairway and not try a miraculous recovery shot. The course was very busy and very slow going which took the edge of the experience a little.

A tight historic course with character. The pines are at times claustrophobically close, some might say too much so. The greens had been hollow tined, some of the fairways were patchy, and a number of the tees were tatty. Nevertheless it's worth a visit to a bit of Algarve history. (The clubhouse was under refurbishment at the time of our visit)
