from United Kingdom Fantastic course! Course was in fantastic condition - the fairways were like carpets and the greens were smooth and ran well. A fair test of golf with wide fairways and big greens but plenty of bunkers and water also. The buggies are very smart, but a little too smart at times, meaning you have to reverse out of places which is a slight inconvenience.
Also great views from the 19th!
from Sweden Really good course We really had a good day. Challenging holes, course in very good condition.
Just be award that the paths are very slippery
from Austria One of our favorite courses at the Algarve Great golf course, beautiful plants, lot of water, very well maintained.
from France Quality of services and challenging golf course when it is windy
from Portugal O’conner in Great Shape May 2022 The practice Green has some devilishly difficult breaks to read around the pins but fear not the O’Connor Jr course greens are more straightforward to read. On the day of play they were in wonderful condition running fast and true and with minimal unrepaired plug marks. The bunkers were perhaps the best I have ever encountered. There was 1/2” of dry light sand with a wetter layer underneath in every one I encountered (4 or 5). A highly skilled player could pick the ball off the dry layer taking relatively little sand or a mid handicapper or less proficient could take more sand and find the sand wedge travels through the wetter sand without encountering a hard-packed base layer. Such uniformity between bunkers is quite rare.
The fairways were in excellent condition although one could quibble that the grass on the yellow tees, being most used, could have been more uniformly cut to a slightly shorter length.
The design was very enjoyable with a well defined shape to most holes. The yellow tees suited my average driving distance of 230-240 yds. If you are a longer hitter you will find the landing areas narrow or run out in some cases beyond 240 yds off the yellows and it might be less risky to play off the whites. Although there is water on the majority of holes I only found it only on one hole although to be fair wind speed was only 10mph or less. On a windy day expect to lose more balls.
I thoroughly enjoyed the round.
