Too bad they let it slip away .. The fairways on the first nine holes were in bad condition and the greens not well maintained.

Not goo value for money!

Always a favourite course of ours we were disappointed in the state of the course this April. The first three holes are like playing on a beach after the drainage work and the rough is way too long. We spent ages looking for balls within 3 feet of the fairways which themselves had long grass akin to light rough. It's a fantastic course but not good at the moment, wake up.

Dear Sir,

Thank you very much for your review on April 20th.

We deeply regret the experiences you had in our golf course and offer our sincere apology.

In fact, the fairways, from holes 1 to 3, had a chemical problem when fertilizing that seriously affected the grass but fortunately, this situation is fully recovered.

Please be assured that your comments have been addressed with the appropriate team members to analyze the reported situation.

Penha Longa Atlantico is a beutiful and enjoyable course. Layout and terrain with fairways going up and down are not too difficult for high handicappers but yet they give reasonable challenge to single hcp players as well. Must play course

Lovely scenary and good layout, very scenic. Course was very wet after rain: should have been closed but was not. Still wet after 3 days of sun which followed. Cart path only. Greens were
a bit "bumpy": not great conditions on the fairways.

I had to write this as I am in shock at some of the comments. I have played this course 3 times over the last 10 years and I consider it to be a gem.
Accepted the first 2 occasions were some time back (ignore my time stamp) but the course could not have been better. The final time we played, a few years ago, it did show signs of poor maintenance, but I put that down to being treated.
I course is a beauty and so long as you check it's being maintained today, it will be a great day out.
