I thought the course would be in better conditions especially the greens. Expensive. Better courses in the area.

I must be the odd one out as I can't see what all the fuss is about. About 10 of the 18 holes have elevated greens and you seem to spend most of the round hitting uphill. Long walks between green and tee (verging on the ridiculous on the Royale !). There is no rough and the fairways lack definition. Sorry not for me !

Good Course, currently spoiled a little by some road work in a housing estate. Greens are lightning quick and fairways are excellent. The price though is far too expensive, as are a lot of courses in Portugal. The fact that it ran through some housing does put me off, that along with the price.

Royal - challenging course played as a twighlight round. Greens very fast but true. Fairways in good condition. Long walks between tees across roads and through housing detract from the experience. Physically quite demanding.

Royal course - hole 16 is probably the most photographed in Portugal, and seems to appear in every golf holiday brochure (200M par 3 along the edge of a cliff).

Many of the other holes are very enjoyable to play, but not as picturesque. In fact probably 14 of them have out of bounds left, right and behind the green, so you could be anywhere on the course. This rake of holes in the midst of identical trees meant it was not as enjoyable as I thought it would be.

Greens were true but not particularly quick. We were only allowed to take the buggies onto the fairways because the previous days rounds were taking over 6 hours (as told to me by a club member), and it was the only way to speed things up. Even so we kept getting pestered by marshalls despite waiting for every shot because we had nowhere to go.

It's a great course and a good test of golf, but they're trying to get too many people on the course! Get ready for a slow round if you're booked to play here!

They are doing extensive renovations to the course at the moment, which means you're playing in and out of builders rubble.

Wouldn't be so bad if they reduced the fees at this time, but no chance. Far tooooooooo pricey for what you get.

Hard Work

The Royal course if very challenging overall, and has the signature par 3 16th across the cliffs. Don't think of carrying your clubs unless you are fit ad strong. Very enjoyable, good condition and had the best fairways of any we played. Expensive.
