The original course of Vale do Lobo was divided into the Ocean and the Royal Courses. In order to make the necessary 36 holes several new holes were constructed - most of which are integrated into the Royal Course. The architect of this course has skilfully made a layout that takes the golfer through some interesting play then leads into to a grand finally on the eighteenth. The most famous hole remains the par-3 and now is the spectacular sixteenth. The very demanding eighteenth is a challenging hole on which to finish demanding accuracy and very good putting.

Course just re-opened after 2 weeks closed for maintenance, for which they offered free carts as it wasn't in top condition. Greens actually rolled ok and sand on fairways didn't prove to be an issue. Tight course and would definitely play again when it's in the best condition. The famous 16th par 3 didn't disappoint.
One of the best in the Algarve.
This course is a good challenge with its tight fairways and well protected greens. The ocean holes are beautiful and to walk the course is also an accomplishment as there are some very long walks between holes with many hills. Altogether a great day's golfing.
Good older design course, hole 16th is spectacular
Good older course requiring all the shots in your bag. Very hilly with stunning views of the ocean and cliffs on hole 16th. A bit on the expensive side for the quality of the course. Most holes have homes on each side of the fairway. Good pro shop.
