This Vale do Lobo course is aptly named the 'Ocean Course' due to the many splendid ocean views enjoyed by players during their round. Many of its holes were part of the original Vale do Lobo Course which was one of the group of original courses that placed the Algarve on the map for golfers. The fairways tend to be narrow demanding an accurate shot when driving from the tee. The Ocean Course wanders through pine trees with attractive views of the sea between the mature homes on the sides of the fairways.
Vale do Lobo Ocean Reviews
A beauty I don't want to see again
Vale do Lobo is a big fancy operation. So there are good service people everywhere, stylish golfers galore, a huge shop, good restaurant, etc. A bit too fancy for my tastes but the course is green and inviting, the proximity to Faro airport great, the spiel appealing, the elegance a bit hypnotizing. Both times I've played here have gone from delightful to anguish - this course is too hard for me (although hcp 30 I usually find my way nicely on all courses but I expect this is one beauty I will not choose to return to. Probably. Hard to admit defeat....
One to recommend

Wow turn each corner and there is something new to astound you a superb golf course and well worth that little bit extra. the marshals were on the ball and it is easily played walking in 4 hours 30 minutes
Not enough stars at the top for this course and its sister is even better.
Amazing course with some spectacular views and beautiful nature.
Only reason for a lack of 5 stars is for the slow play on the course, a lot of 4 balls with friends coming along to watch which slows up play. 18 holes took nearly 5 hours
