“Class Golf Course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is without question the best parkland course that I've ever played. Having spent years visiting the Algarve for golf holidays, we decided to try the Lisbon area this year. We played 5 courses and 4 of them were out of this world. Penha Longa was out of this i. Universe. It was too good for me. I recommend it for golfers of all standards except absolute beginners. It would overpower them. The condition of the course was excellent, the greens were fast and true. The golfing staff were pleasant & helpful. The clubhouse is a bit modern and pretentious and the staff there were a bit patronising. But that's not why we were there.

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

“Needs some significant maintenance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

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.

Please contact myself directly in case you need any assistance in the future. You can reach me at 351 21 9249011.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

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

“Condition Not Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

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.
