“The Course Must Have Seen Better Days”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

This course was part of the golf package we had included with our stay at the Palacio Estoril Hotel. It just happened that it rained for a few days and we were only able to play it once when the sun finally came out. There was a sign on the reception wall noting that this was one of the best courses in Portugal at one time, but it is obvious that maintenance has gone downhill. It is a pretty course, with a decent layout. But the fairways and greens do need work. Coming from N.America we are not exactly used to this kind of condition in a "top" golf course. But it was pleasant enough, and we were eager to play after a few days of rain. Like one of your contributors remarked "Once was enough" : yes, once was probably enough for us too.

“Nice course”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

I have happy memories of this course. Tight in places and so needs a sensible head. Everyone was friendly and the food after the game, typical of most golf courses in Spain, tapas (and a few beers) was perfectly good.

Still where the cap I bought from there and I only do that if I don't superstitiously think it came from a bad place :-)

“Good golf course”

I had a memorable time at this golf course. Friendly staff, excelent food. Can be very hot in the summer, I was advised to play in the morning. The green was in perfect condition.

“Once was enough!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

great golf course but not the friendliest of staff. we were dealt with as if we were an inconvenience (we needed to hire clubs and buggy) as it was an impulse decision to play.

“Enjoyable golf course and club environment.”

Course perhaps needs more maintenance. Tough course from back tees! Food served to our group was excellent.
