What the club says: The terrain is superb and typical of the area, sandy and littered with umbrella pines trees. In the spring, the rough is covered with a blanket of wild flowers, heather and gorse. The Fairways and tees are covered with Bermuda hybrid with a cool season mixture of grasses, which provides year-round, top quality swards. The greens are sown with Creeping Bentgrass Penncross, giving a fast, true putting surface, and which provide good all-year round putting surfaces. The bunkering is incomparable, both on the fairways and surrounding the greens and gives the course an advantage over many of similar quality and design.
(Round played: Sep 2012 - Score: 101 Handicap: 22.7)
The course isn't the longest and requires accurate driving and real consideration of each shot. It is beautifully presented and provides a really interesting challenge, coupled with some lovely views in places, and is just an absolute pleasure to play. Holes 14/18 are absolute gems - but there is not one bad hole on the entire course.
You feel very well looked after too with the marshalls being very friendly (same cannot be said down the road at Pinheiros Altos) and the buggies coming equipped with GPS (causing great excitement amongst our group!). Great bar/restaurant area too.
All in all a simply fantastic course and club and we cannot wait to go back and play the South course, which if the North if anything to go by, must be even more of a delight.
Greens were quick and true. We were left alone by the marshalls, and the par 3 "Hawker" as one of the reviewers called her; was pleasant and not pushy, and the money raised was going to a Faro orphanage.
