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.

What a fantastic course. It's a great looking parkland course and a very stiff challenge. You need to concentrate on remaining accurate for all 18 holes or the course will take it's revenge. All holes have lines of trees to contend with and if you get in amongst them it can ruin your score on that hole. Greens were fantastic and it is kept in fantastic condition all around. There are a number of stunning holes as you look down the fairways all with something different to keep you interested and on your metal.

Golfshake Team Review

Wow, Amazing course and setting.
Tree lined lush fairways with excellent greens and real sand in bunkers.

If your not straight it can beat you up quite bad but you will get a lucky break here and there.

Simply stunning and a joy to play.

I we have played many of the best courses in Europe and have never played a course with a better layout and in better conditions! The fairways were like carpet, a ball-strikers dream!

Tony B rated 5 out of 5 - Sep 20 2017

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

Ian M rated 5 out of 5 - May 9 2017

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.
