What the club says: Opened in 1976, Pinhal Golf Course weaves its way through a pine forest and also sports panoramic views over the sea. Originally designed by English architect Frank Pennink, the famous American architect, Robert Trent Jones, introduced several modifications in 1985. As a result, the first nine holes wind through umbrella pinewoods while the back nine, returning gently uphill, moves through terrain that opens up to those magnificent sea views

18 holes. Par 72. 6726 yards. Woodland.

Nice Course. Surroundings a little shabby.

The course itself was very well kept. However the surrounding area a little worn.

Not at all great...

Tight course and tricky in places. For the cost 82euro it's very overpriced especially with a buggy on top (another 40euro). Showing signs of Algerian sun damage in places and thereally are parts where the rough is especially poor.

Aso a test of golf it'll catch out big hitters who cannot keep it straight (like me). No good bombing 300 yard drives round here unless you have a dispersal of less then 10 yards either side as it is very tight in most fairways.

Greens are in places excellent but in others showing sings of being not well looked after with patches of poa annua. That side they did play true (if a little slow) so at least you could trust a line generally and go for it. Managed to two putt or 1 putt most of the time including some longer ones.

Club house is also unspectacular and nothing like you would expect having just paid more then £70 for a round!
