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....

Great venue ... lovely facilities... front nine of the ocean is a little open and as a low handicapper this is where you need to get off to a good start as the back nine will give you more of a challenge... all the greens where true and if you picked the right line you could be pretty confident... they where also very receptive so no worries about firing straight at the pin... in my opinion the back nine is more pictures but in all great little course.
Critical Comments re. Vale do Lobo Ocean Course
A first-rate course with some challenging and scenic holes patricularly among the last nine. Regrettably some of the first nine holes were not in the best shape and were overly damp in some cases. The general upkeep of the
fairways and greens does not measure up to the standards of the Quinto do Lago courses: South, North and Laranjal.
