Played two rounds in November. Impeccable golf course. First round was memorable because I really wanted to play that golf track at least once in my life. As a big bonus I played it twice and found it a little easier than the first day.

It was a dream of mine to play this course and I was hoping that I would not be disappointed. It was a truly fantastic experience and it definitely lived up to its reputation. Service is superb and the golf amazing. The starters make sure no one goes off too quick so there is generally no waiting on the course. The greens were so quick giving us a taste of what the pros have to deal with. There are no two holes the same and will test every level of golfer. The caddy's were very knowledgeable and should definitely be trusted! We had relatively calm weather so were not bothered with the twigs on the greens. Was a little disappointed with the ladies selection in the pro shop but everything else was first class.

Never crowded. Just golf, no fuss. Beautiful scenery and holes that are non of them alike. Perfect upkeep and perfect clubhouse. Wonderful personnel.

Played as a guest so fee affordable this time . There had been strong winds 3 or 4 days prior and it was continuing so leaves and twigs and nuts had all fallen off the many cork oaks that line the course. Made it very tricky.
Despite this still loved the experience of playing this course.

Best time to play it is when there is no wind. The twigs leaves etc did spoil it but they were dropping every second so nothing anyone could do.

If you are a golfing nut then you will play this course regardless of price and so you should. However it is vastly overpriced , living off past reputation and has lost its status as a course on the European Tour. When we played it was in so so condition , it had been windy and the cork trees had shed a lot of leaves and we were made to wait an hour whilest members claimed the right to tee off in front of us, even though we had pre booked tee times.Personally I hate to hit good tee shots , find the fairway and am then stymied by a tree!
La Reserva next door, less then half the price and as good once you have stripped away V`s reputation and they also collect you from the carpark put your clubs in a buggy and clean everything when you have finished.
