What the club says: Opened in 2008 and designed by Nick Faldo with strategic play in mind this 6,604 meters par–72 championship course demands careful positioning to score well.

In a modern twist of a traditional recipe, cacti and wild herbs replace the role of Sunningdale’s heather, spartan Holm oaks and ancient olive trees take the place of a lush English woodland, and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace Berkshire’s sandy tracts in a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play.

Most Helpful Review

Great experience on this amazing course. We arrived and they took our clubs from the front to our buggys ready to tee off, then we walked through the amazing club house to collect buggys and off to the 1st tee. Very picturesque course, with a desert kind of feel. The greens were in great condition, quite long drives between holes, you could not walk this course in under 7 hours. - Sep 18 2016


Golfshake Team Review

Probably the best course in the area for views. Simply stunning.

Completly different to the O'Connor course on the same complex as this course is littered with bunkers. Big bunkers. Fairways and greens.

If you stay away from the bunkers there is a good score to be had. But if you end up in then a high score is waiting to brag you.

Not one boring hole on the course.

Fantastic course but tough
Played this course for first time although played it's sister course O'Connor a couple of years ago. Impressive set up, friendly staff, great clubhouse. Top practice facilities, free range balls. Green fees include a buggy which is needed to get round this long course. Course itself in immaculate condition, greens mint. Need to be driving straight to score, any bad shots punished by plenty of bunkers or penal rough. Back nine starts off very tough, a few blind holes so need to plot your way round a bit, something I was not able to do at times. Would return to experience the course again and hopefully play it better.

Portugese masters treat
What a treat playing on the course a week before the PGA masters, although there was much activity building stands and catering tents etc the Victoria staff could not have been more customer focused. The course was in great condition and the overall experience could have been bettered.

Best Course I've Played
Challenging, rewarding, with unique character. A joy with every stroke. Facilities are just a different class. Not possible to attack the course but respect it and you'll be rewarded
