Really good course
We really had a good day. Challenging holes, course in very good condition.

Just be award that the paths are very slippery

A bad day of golf is better than _____. Not here.
Chaotic club house, terrible pace of play, slow greens, scorched fairways, and worst of all, warm beer off the cart (which came around once).

I should have stayed on the beach...speaking of which, the traps were sloppy, too.

One of the best golf courses in Algarve. Perfect condition, perfect design, perfect views. Very demanding even for single handicapped players.

Not as good as last year
Played last hear on O'Connor jr course and couldn't adult ANYTHING, this hear Faldo course. Course was in perfect condition and more challenging tnan O'Connor, but total visitor experiences is less then last year, little things like tokens for range balls instead of the prepared complimentary pyramids, small things but it's the difference between 4 stars and 5 stars.

Love this course!
Great layout and excellent condition. Staff all very pleasant and practice facilities are excellent. The only thing that slightly spoiled the experience for me was the slow rate of play. There are plenty of stewards on the course but they appear unwilling to do anything about slow groups. Will definitely play again though.

Superb course
Superb course - lovely condition and a very interesting layout which makes you think carefully about each shot.

Greens were top notch.

Probably the best course I’ve played on the Algarve.

We will be back
Service is second to none.

Course is suitable for all handicaps as long as you are sensible.

Lots of wildlife and great views

Great course for intermediate & good golfers
Lovely course layout and good facilities, well conditioned tees fairways and greens when we played in June. I would recommend for 18 or lower handicappers, lots of water and impenetrable plants line the fairways so if you’re not straight off the tee bring balls, lots of balls

Bad Organisation
The course is nice, but the organisation terrible! We waited for 50 minutes before we got our buggy. Obviously more tee times are being sold than there are buggies available.

one should have a birdie card - to play it without for the first time withou any knowledge how the hole looks like , was for me very challenging. Hwr quality of the course and views are worth to play

Course layout good and condition good. But there are some scruffy areas bordering the course, junk under bridges etc which detract from the enjoyment. Clubhouse bar lacks character.

Great course, Slow play
Great course, if you don’t mind 5 hr 39 min rounds...

I played 3 rounds here, which is a strong positive endorsement. But all 3 took 5 hrs .

Great course
Challenging course, outstanding layout and design. Beautiful setting. Staff was wonderful. Negatives: greens were slow; some bunkers in mild disrepair
Barnaby from United States
Faldo on Tue, 21st Aug 2018
I got the summer special for myself and my partner and assumed, given the low price, that this course ma may be a slightly poorer relation to some of the higher green fees on the coast. I was wrong; I’m a huge lover of Faldo’s design and this is one of the best I’ve played. It tests your all round game, has stunning views and is a very interesting layout from beginning to end. I particularly enjoyed the elevated tees and would say this is not a course for the faint of heart with many uphill shots and undulating fairways. Definitely take a buggy and definitely include this in your bucket list.

Not for the faint hearted. Great course.
Not for the faint hearted. A fantastic course for low handicaps, but you need good course management to get round without getting into trouble. Fabulous conditions.

Another great round of Golf at the Faldo course
We always enjoy playing the Faldo course, together with San Lorenzo our favourites. The 12th is always challenging to find the right line of the tee. The service is always friendly and good.

The best condition
Beautiful course in very good condition, lots of water, beautiful vegetation. Changing course but not for high handicap golfers. Great service included!

Afternoon Father and Son golf
Excellent course in great condition. A proper challenge with many different tees for all abilities but a fair test of golf. Big negative is the carts - they have a computer of course but no yardages so as good as useless - crazy, as sprinkler head yardages are not always there and not that ideal - please rectify. We also had only one golf bag to save on airline baggage so we had to rent another bag to go on the buggy - why? Ridiculous!

Paul from Portugal
Faldo on Sun, 8th Jul 2018
Decent course. It’s a bit of a drive but one of the better courses in the Algarve. Don’t even think about walking. It’s very hilly and there’s a lot of distanc from most greens to the next tee.

Service is very good.

First Class
Really beautiful and changing course but not for high handicap golfers - anyone over 18 will struggle to score with all the water and carries to the fairway. Great service included!

Perfect day
From warm welcome on arrival until my clubs were brought to the car when leaving , a perfect day was enjoyed by all. Courteous, professional, and attentive staff, and O'Connor Jr. Course a pleasure to play, will definetely return AAA

Played twilight round, last on course. Caddy master service excellent. Great layout. Service in restaurante was slightly disapointing as we felt we were keeping them from going home.
Sean Nyhan from United States
on Tue, 15th May 2018
Played both courses & liked them a lot, different challenges although found the greens on the O'Connor course to be very slow.

Biggest criticism is of the staff with regards buggies. We were late for our tee time due to them not having the keys or paperwork in order even tho we had played the day before without any issue. Also the guy cleaning the clubs at the end, DO NOT TIP! Clubs were filthy when I opened my bag on Day 2 despite giving a generous tip after the 1st day.

Mark Sheppey from United Kingdom
Faldo on Fri, 11th May 2018
quite scruffy in places compared to other times i have played it, very slow as in 5 and half hours in a buggy. real shame as it is a great location and course but you are paying top price so i expect it to be spot on

Faldo on Tue, 31st Oct 2017
Abwechslungsreich 👍
Super nettes Personal und der Platz ein typischer Faldo der nicht leicht zu spielen ist, besonders bei Wind.

Die ersten 9 sind gut zu Laufen, aber ab der Bahn 11 wird es schon eine Herausforderung bis zur 14.

Faldo on Thu, 26th Oct 2017
Condition great layout poor
The condition of this course is excellent and the service from the staff is also great but I didn't like the layout. The back nine is very hilly and there are too many bunkers. I thought Jack Nicklaus liked bunkers on his course designs but Faldo has taken it to a new level. We had a buggy but I say this course would be impossible to play and enjoy without a buggy unless you have legs like Chris Hoy. The walk from 11 to 12 you need a Sherpa.

Faldo Comments
An excellent very challenging course which measures up to the very best desert courses in Arizona and Southern California.

No buggies. Chaos.
Waited an hour for a buggy.

Chaotic. Disorganised.

Didn't get anywhere near finishing the round.

OConnor on Sun, 15th Oct 2017
Only if you are on your game
Be precise on all of your green approaches.

There is water, ditches & bulrushes everywhere.

You will need a course plannner & yardage, if you want to finish with the ball you started with?

Great course, but too much for high handicappers
16 of us played the Faldo course, with handicaps ranging from 4 to 26. The higher handicappers and shorter hitters struggled on some holes due to the carry and accuracy needed from the tee. It is a great course though and I would highly recommend it to anyone not falling into the categories above. The service and facilities were the best of anywhere we have played in the Algarve (11 courses and counting)
Liam from United Kingdom

Excellent course and facilities
Fantastic facilities and customer service. Course in great condition. Better for higher handicappers than the Faldo, but still testing enough for better players.

Faldo golf course
A bit too difficult for the high handicapper other than that greens n fairways in great nick running at 10 on stint meter

Best golf resort I've stayed at (in Europe) especially for the price we paid, cannot fault it. Don't know what Colette Stapleton is on about, must of found it too difficult to play at, both courses are great.

I'll definitely be going again. Fully recommended.

Thank you Sebastian

Steer Clear
Course looking untidy particularly tee boxes. First six hour plus round ever, lack of marshalling on course. Booking system ridiculous, four ball started on I0 put out in front of my group of 20 players that slowed us up even more!!!! Horrendous. Would recommend you stay clear of this facility until they up their act.

Top dressed greens
Played this course several times and is a really good test of golf. However It would be courteous if the management would let you know that the greens have been top dressed the previous day. I understand that it's off season but putting on sand is not quite the same as grass.

Fantastic course!
Course was in fantastic condition - the fairways were like carpets and the greens were smooth and ran well. A fair test of golf with wide fairways and big greens but plenty of bunkers and water also. The buggies are very smart, but a little too smart at times, meaning you have to reverse out of places which is a slight inconvenience.

Also great views from the 19th!

Faldo on Thu, 8th Jun 2017
The price is excellent

The place is very nice but would need a little bit more work on fairways.

We enjoyed playing this course.
