from United Kingdom Best course of the holiday, by a mile! Best course I've ever played in Portugal. Its the sort of course where I really looked forward to getting to the next tee box and seeing the next whole coming up, excellent fun.
We were dropped off early (7am for a 8am tee off) for our tee time but nothing was open until 7.30 so not much chance of a coffee/breakfast.
We were a 5 but starter allowed us to go out earlier as a 2 and a 3 rather than be joined up with a 2 ball who had originally been allocated similar tee times. Being the first groups out meant we were able to fly round and not having to be paired up with hackers or duffers was a welcome change.
from Kuwait Rushed The clubhouse, pro shop (bit slow), attendants, practice range and starter were all very nice and handled us professionally. We teed off at 0930 and the course was in great condition but the pace was frantic and not pleasant. By the second hole the group behind had caught up with us. On the third hole we had caught the group in front and were being pressured by the group behind and that was the story for the rest of the game, we were consistently waiting and then the group behind us was waiting for us, so the golf became more of a chore than a good game on a nice course.
from Ireland Expensive course that is not properly maintained. This is a great course. Unfortunately it was in bad shape for our visit .Large areas with no grass and bare clay . These were not marked GUR which was was way below standard you would expect from such an expensive course .In present poor state definitely not worth the 137 euro plus 50 for buggy and 6 euro for few practice balls .Management said their o nly interest is the Portuguese open whick is a cop out when charging such a high green fee . Give this one a miss as there is much better keep and cheaper courses in area ollie
from United Kingdom Too expensive, too slow and disappointing Nice course layout, but allowing players out in the course who clearly have no clue how to play golf spoiled it for me and my playing partner. For the amount of money we paid we expected there to be no slow play and decent etiquette too. Many courses are only interested in taking money and it's a shame that Vilamoura appear to have followed suit. Unfortunately this course won't be on my list when I next return to the area.
