The old course is like most courses on the Algarve, well maintained, well thought out and the staff are friendly and helpful... just a shame i couldn't keep the ball on the fairway ... because of my golf swing not the course

CLub house is early portacabin, but do not let that put you off. It is a beautiful, quite tight course and a real test of golf. I prefered the tree lined fairways to the other more open courses on this big complex. The greens were fast and true, and it stands up resonably welll considering the hackers that they let loose here.

Lack of of investment is now beginning to bite. Fairways are burnt with many bare patches and the greens are just holding up due to continual top dressing to smooth out the surfaces. Paths are dangerous with many trip hazards. Anything goes golfers who can't play (no minimum handicap restrictions) one player in front of us took 3 shots to actually hit the ball more than 10 yards and then proceeded to take Mulligans!!!
The once old grand lady of Vilamoura is no longer grand but still at the same price. Come on Oceanico sort it or loose it :-(!!
