Misleading name but fabulous course
Awesome - the only downside being that the majority of the course is not in view of the sea!

Not great value for money
Not a fan unfortunately. The front 9 was a bit boring and although the back 9 was more interesting there are far more enjoyable courses to play in the Algarve especially for the money. Apart from the ladies on the golf reception the staff in the clubhouse were not welcoming or friendly in the slightest. You just feel you are another group on the treadmill of golfers that come through the resort.

Course was in good condition and the scenery on the back nine was stunning. Greens in great condition and with the sea breeze it is a good test for all levels. Would be very happy to play there again and again.....

Had high hopes for playing the course. We hired clubs and was disappointed to find I had been given ladies clubs which does not say much about the quality control. (Managed to change them after 9 holes). Having played Quinta two days earlier this was second best by some distance.

Afternoon out with the boys
Great venue ... lovely facilities... front nine of the ocean is a little open and as a low handicapper this is where you need to get off to a good start as the back nine will give you more of a challenge... all the greens where true and if you picked the right line you could be pretty confident... they where also very receptive so no worries about firing straight at the pin... in my opinion the back nine is more pictures but in all great little course.

Vale do Lobo ocean course
Course in good condition. Reception eficient and a warm welcome from starters etc. Quite a hilly course especially towards the end of the round and longish walks from green to tees.Electric trolley or electric buggy recommended for older golfers. Bar area and restaurant good but service was slow.

Great course, as good as I'd remembered.

Unfortunately, starters are as 'rigid' as ever. We had a 16.05 tee-off time, but even though the course was half-empty from 15.00 they wouldn't let us off any earlier which meant playing holes 17 & 18 pretty much in the dark, & then we hadn't time for a drink at the 19th!

Absolutely amazing - from the clubhouse to the friendly stuff this course was on a different level to anything have played before. The course was in top class condition and the views throughout were amazing

Nick from United Kingdom

Great course and was not too crowded given it was Easter week. Usually get put with another 2 ball when playing as a 2 but that was OK for us.

The tee boxes were not very woman friendly. Most only gave a 10 yard break.

Stefan from United States

Typical real estate course, could be located in the US. Design is secondary and course is squeezed in. Some nice holes close to the ocean with great views. A course you can miss.

I loved this track, especially the holes down by the beach. Superb conditioning. A challenging walk but worth every step.

Good course
Well set out course but not in great condition. The views and holes playing towards the Sea were spectacular

Good: Not too many villas alongside the course; Great views

Room for improvement: a couple of fairways are of poor quality

Excellent- better than the royal imho
Best course I've played this year. Great holes throughout especially those by the shore. 6th fairway had been heavily dressed, but were advised of this and got a 15euro reduction on buggy hire which was fair.

Review of Vale do Lobo 10/13/16
It was the last course we played on our trip to Portugal. It was challenging but fair. Some very dramatic holes and stunning vistas.

Our foursome was composed of different styles and levels of experience and we ALL love the experience!

Not in best shape
Not in best shape. I have played it when it was better. the greens were to soft and rough cut. they needed to be cut and rolled over to be more even .

1st, 2nd, 4th & 5th aren't much (highly critical) to look at but after that this course comes into its own. Highly recommend playing.

Great course
Played a great course, lovely views and really enjoyable! Not a negative word to say about the course just a shame that the speed of play was slow

Nice course but extremely slow
Nice course, very tight though and pace of play felt painfully slow. Worth playing but be prepared for a 4.5 hours plus round.
