This was our very first golf experience in Portugal. I had sometimes difficulties to focus on playing while enjoying the beautiful scenery around. Greens were still under maintenance, the crew explained this before the round, however those were fully playable for us. Thank you so much for our great experience and good service!

We played on Saturday 7th, some greens were diseased, tees heavily sanded with long grass and the fairways where drainage had been added we're still scared and the grass had not taken.
No longer in championship condition and charging top money. Estoril and Lisbon in much better condition.

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.

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.
