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.

A must play

Doesn’t matter when you visit the area this course is a must visit. The fairways and greens are immaculate and the staff are proud of the heritage of the course. It really is fantastic. Not easy as the tree lined fairways cause problems, well placed trees and bunkers on approach. But it’s still a great course to play.

The course was the best I have ever seen it and the greens were fantastic played well and if I had sunk all of the putts I left only just short I could have easily had 40 plus points

Wow, what a golf course!

Played Old Course Vilamoura 28/9/17
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!

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!
