Very friendly staff. Nice course set up. Condition ok but for price definitely not up to scratch. Real drivers course. Can be walked. Which is a bonus. Surprised it is a Portuguese Open venue

This was our last course of the tour on the way to Faro airport and convenient for Vilamoura. Beware the many trees and those in particular that consume your golf balls because of their very thick canopies! Some of the fairways were patchy and generally...More

Great course to play in the Algarve. Fantastic practice facilities. Nice big club house with nice restaurant and great big outdoor seating area overlooking the 18th green. Course was very nice but it is a tough course. Will be a struggle if you aren't accurate...More

Only 1 course at Vila Sol (that i was aware of) but it has 27 holes so you can chose the 2 x 9 you want to play...or more likely be told which 2 x 9 you will play !
