Wonderful

It was a drizzly grey day and not what one had hoped for on the 1st day of our long weekend in Portugal. Expectations were not dampened though as 20 years or so before I had stood at the base of the cliff at the 16th and said one day I will play that course The round was great fun greens in good condition, pace of play pretty good too, then to the majestic 16th worth the green fee all on its own. Sadly our tee shots didn't meet the quality of the hole, but will always be remembered fondly.

Beautiful resort course in fabulous setting

Great experience here. Well designed very nice playable course. Not too difficult. Greens excellent. Par 3 16th spectacular! Long walks between tees and greens so a (expensive!) buggy worthwhile. Good condition considering the heavy traffic on it.

Not cheap but a nice treat.

Only drawbacks for me are no practice net anyway near the clubhouse and you are obliged to play off the yellow tees which does make it pretty short. There are several 300 ish yard par 4s and the 1st is a 400 yard par 5! Understandable to keep pace of play up I suppose.

Fantastic course

We had a fantastic round here. Fairways and greens were in fantastic condition and made for a really enjoyable round. Booking in process and picking up buggies was really slick and staff were very friendly and professional.

Driving range is limited to 7/8 iron and no chipping facilities were available when we went. Practice greens were again in very good condition.

What a fantastic venue. From the moment you arrive, you realise what a special place it is. We played the ocean course, which was beautiful with lots of fantastic scenery, especially the par 3 15th which is played along the beach. It's a very undulating course with some really difficult holes, but a good score is possible if on your game. If your going to the Algarve, then you must give this course a go.

Top Courses

This was our second year at Vale de Lobo, we played both the Ocean and Royal course and they are quite challenging especially the Ocean course. some amazing views from both courses as they run along side the coast.

Fantastic course

Well it is expensive but such a fabulous course and well worth doing for the signature 16th. Fairways and greens immaculate and the facilities second to none. We started the day in style with a continental breakfast and whilst the Golf was mixed the whole experience was worth the price
