Enjoyed 18 holes with friends on a very sunny day in March. Greens and fairways are in lovely condition and the course, although quite tight, offers a very enjoyable round of golf. Hospitality at the club was as good as expected. Will certainly be returning to the course.

Played in a group of 12 and the whole group enjoyed their round. Very playable and relaxed place to play. Would recommend for all handicaps - a great tour course

With a group, we played golf and later had food there. A great golf course - suitable for high and low handicappers! The course was in great condition. Buggys supplied with water. Food after golf was very good - staff were pleasant, in excellent humour and efficient. Nice place!

What a stunningly manicured golf course. My son and I had the most enjoyable Sunday afternoon of golf on this majestic course. Very reasonably priced with impeccable customer service and scenery at every hole. Very user friendly. A must for the enthusiast!

I loved this course. Absolutely loved it. A variety of driving needed. Forgiving wide fairways on some holes, others tight and requiring thought. On the greens I felt I could sink every putt. No two holes are alike and some cracking dog legs, especially the 10th a 90 degree dog leg. Excellent food and service made it a perfect day

Rio Real is a narrow, challenging and scenic golf course which is best for a golfer of a reasonable standard. The course was presented in a good condition when we played in November 2015.

I’ve played Rio Real many times over the years and it never disappoints. It has mixture of tough but fair holes along with some lovely scenic holes. You need to be a reasonable standard of golfer to play here as its 6000 meters long

The guys in the pro shop have a terrible attitude. Before taking 1000 euro from ten guys for a round (with buggies) they said the course was in great condition. It is not, the greens have disease and are very lumpy. We have another round booked and paid for which would wanted to cancel after playing and seeing the condition... More

Played the course at the weekend and the only thing I can say was that the Greens were a disgrace, I would go as far as to say that some are not playable. I complained after coming off the course and the excuse given was that they had experienced a dry summer. It's funny how the other 2 courses we... More

The greens showed the wear and tear of a hot, busy summer we were told after complaining. Surely watering and management could have improved them. We experienced black patches, cracks, poor grass and pitch marks peppered across the greens. Two days later (October 1st) we played at Alcaidesa and what a treat that was - beautiful greens. So, it can... More
