Lots of water

On my latest trip to Portugal, this was the only course which I had played previously, so I knew there was a lot of water, as this is a coastal course which makes good use of the terrain to bring water into play on all holes except the 17th.

As we could walk to the course from our hotel, we played it 3 times, including on an allocated 'day off', where 3 of us wanted to play. First day was very windy, which made avoiding the water even more difficult, and we even had to put up with rain on the third round, which slowed down the very quick greens. The greens were consistently the same speed, which always helps, but some rain in the days before our arrival meant that there were puddles around the course, even if it meant you could fire the ball into the greens and it would hold.

Whilst the water (and in our case wind) makes it difficult to keep the ball in play, the course itself is a fair challenge, and is not overly long off the yellow or red tees.

Food in the clubhouse was well priced and tasty. The staff were very friendly, although on one occasion there was some confusion about whether we had booked/changed a tee time. However, because it was a quiet time of year, we fitted into the booking schedule without too much ado.

Because we had an extra game, we found out the cost was 60Euro, which in my opinion is a little overpriced, but there are deals to be made if you want to haggle for a group discount.

Bunkers were reasonably stocked with sand, although the rain before we flew into Faro meant the sand was a little compacted. They had also sanded a lot of areas which had gotten very wet, which made things look untidy, but generally, those areas were not in play.

Overall, I would recommend, but only for a single round, and I'm fairly sure I'll play it again, just for the challenge of trying to keep the same ball in play for 18 holes!

Great holiday golf

Really enjoyable holiday golf. The course is not too long but it requires good course management. Some of the par 5's are particularly tough. A nice relaxing course, easy walking, and surrounded by birds from the neighbouring wetlands.

Water everywhere

It was warm and sunny, there is plenty of water on this course and being acurate off of the tee is a must. Course is in good condition but tee boxes are a little tatty.

We were warned that there was a lot of water on this course which there was, it is challenging and narrow in place but very scenic

Think your way around

Played on 17.5.18. Superb weather. Plenty of water to catch out the wayward shot. However think your way around and you will have a great day. The clubhouse staff were very friendly they even helped us identify some of the wild life. Would highly recommend

Lovely course just congested

Course is in great condition considering it was late April and it has been a tough winter. Excellent course layout just thought the holes with dog legs were a bit short because if you were hitting a driver off the box you would miss fairway. Only complaint was the course had far too many people on it to maintain a decent speed of play.
