What the club says: The previous owners invested 18 million euros in Oceânico’s Victoria Golf Club, designed by Arnold Palmer, one of the greatest legends of the sport. This was the most ambitious golf project in Portugal, and was aimed at being one of the best golf complexes in the whole of Europe.

The Victoria Clube de Golfe will be the fifth at Vilamoura and the most exclusive one at the resort, making it ideal to became the Algarve's and Portugal's major venue for top international tournaments.

Palmer, whose design company has planned some 500 layouts worldwide, compiled the Victoria course project, and Southern Golf, Europe's largest golf course builder, was awarded the construction contract.

Oceânico’s Victoria Golf Course is an 18-hole, par 72 championship layout, measuring 6.609 meters from the back tees. Several man-made lakes provide hazards for the players and also serve as water reservoirs for irrigation.

I played this course in mid march with my dad on a golf breaks tip (in conjunction with the nearby Laguna and Millennium courses). To give you some idea of the effect this course had on me, I still have pictures from the round as my background and screen saver on my laptop (as does my dad). We played the course as part of a package and enjoyed it some much that we played to play it again on the last day (after playing 18 holes in the morning!).
If you play this course on the same day as playing one of the other courses in the group, and you stay in the hotel on the course and you play after 2.30 then it costs £40 incl buggy (vs £110 if you just book to play on its own).
The course is in very good condition and is split into 2 distinctly different 9 holes. The front 9 is relatively straightforward with relatively open fairways (you need to score well here to make up for what’s coming next). The back 9 has water….. lots of water……everywhere. Provided you play very safe, then you can just about get round, but take a camera for the views and plenty of spare balls.
Top tip for playing here…. Arrive early (we got free range balls in the deal and there are good practice facilities). Spend 95% of your practice time chipping from the long rough onto the fast greens (as the rough is very thick and this cost me 5+ shots over each round), 4% time driving/warming up, 1% putting. The greens are very fast, practicing will just get you scared!
I am already trying to work out when I can come back to this course - May 1 2011


Golfshake Team Review

Whilst this course is in excellent condition it can beat you up quite bad if its a windy day.

Great mixture of tree lined holes then open holes with lots of water in play.

As with all the other Oceanico course a real must play

Had a nice round here. Paired up with another two ball. Stewards asked us to speed up at one point or let the group behind through, even though the group ahead were still on the green. Tricky back 9, course in good condition, boggy in quite a few places. I think it was quite a bit overpriced, but I guess they can charge what they want here, and still be fully booked. Would certainly play again, but would chose the Pinhal over this course any day.
