Very Good Course
Very good course

In very good condition

Wouldn’t be my favourite of the Dom Pedro Courses but worth a visit

Nice layout
Nice layout with a few tricky holes. I would personally say that if a single player like myself was put out with others or similar instead of being put out with a couple.

Third time playing and first time without losing a ball, wife still beat me 🫣

Only complaint would be that the greens are a bit patchy

Interesting Opener 2024
Interesting layout, target golf at its best, you need to be straight off the tee. Really enjoyable as a replacement track, as Victoria was closed at short notice.

Only criticism was last shuttle was 6.30pm, teeing off at 2pm made it a little bit of rush.

Bare field
This golf course is a bare field. It lacks trees and character. You don't need to come to the algarve to play a course like this

Not as good as Millennium. Condition of the course was a bit down but overall a nice course to play.

Not worth a penny! Choose
Course is in poor shape, more or less no gras on the Fairways.

Greens are better Fairways.

Maybe maintenance is reduced to a Minimum an will be closed once Victoria reopens in 2025 after renovavation with a new kind of gras which needs substancial less Irrigation.

At least thats the Version told ba a member who joined us.

avoid Laguna F.
Laguna is not in good shape. Where is the gras on

most fairways and most greens?

Choose any other course, e.g. Millenium or Pinhal.

Pretty good for the time of year but one or two areas requiring a bit of tlc.

Wide fairways and water make it a fair test.
Wide fairways a help, but the water made it more tricky. My son and I had great holes amid a few low points, but it was a fair challenge that we both thoroughly enjoyed. The staff are really friendly and helpful too.

Great course. Greens a little slow but still good
Loz Hipkin
Neil, we are playing here on Thursday and I am hearing lots of mixed reviews about the poor quality of the course. Did you play on the 8th Nov and would you say the course is in good condition. @ €130 per person we want to make sure before it's too late. Cheers Laurence

Decent course but poor greens
Decent course in good condition let down by very poor greens. Plenty of water. Slow pace. Good practice facilities. We were last people on the course and the clubhouse was closed by the time we left the 18th. Wrongly assumed the staff would order us a taxi but everyone had left. Had to sit in the dark for 20 minutes hoping for a taxi to arrive

Laguna golf not worth the green fees
One of the worst golf course we have ever played, I would be embarrassed if I was working at the reception taking people money. First the greens are terrible and I mean terrible, no grass on them we have played winter temporary greens that are better, the fairways have so much sand on them it's like playing a bunker shot, I suggest not to play here as any real golfers will be very disappointed.

Appalling Laguna
Disgraceful. The greens are in terrible condition There is. I way that Laguna should be taking green fees ( €85) for this course at the moment. Even if I’m top condition it’s an average parkland course with little character Avoid.

Laguna review 22 March 23
The back nine are not as good a layout as the front nine. The greens were diseased and in poor condition and the first cut of rough was patchy meaning you often ended up with no grass under the ball.

Not worth the money
Incredibly disappointing! We booked this course under the perception that it would be quite an experience . We learned a few days prior to our tee time that the course was in poor condition. Since we had paid a considerable amount of money, we asked to cancel the booking for refund. We were denied that request and given no option other than forfeit the money or play. We showed up to play. The course overall is in poor condition.and needs much care and attention. You cannot play the greens. There are no words to describe the condition of the greens. Overall a very poor experience and a total rip off. Most offensive and disturbing was that the pro shop insisted that the course was playable and in great condition and did nothing to acknowledge our disappointment. When you pay premium dollar ; you expect customer service and value. None here and will not return.

Favourite course of the week. Kept at a steady pace and not rushed.
Phillip from United Kingdom
on Thu, 16th Feb 2023
Course condition was shocking. Pitted fairways and green without grass, you literally pitted on flat mud with black dead grass rolled.

Course is long and technical with water and bunkers.

Staff in this complex were poor, not very welcoming- faces like slapped a@se. We teed off early and the starter held us back from teeing off to the second, proper jobs worth!

We played every course this week and this was the worst but a country mile.

Unfortunately they are having issues with the greens at Laguna however although they look bad they put ok the course itself is fairly ordinary in terms of layout but filled a pleasant afternoon.

In summary it’s ok but there are better alternatives around.

Gary from Bermuda

Nice layout, conditioning was average. First hole in the morning is directly into the sun, can’t see a thing. Service is really poor compared to North American standards. They gave me the wrong scorecard at the start ( for an adjoining course). Need gps for course on cart

Over booked and not great condition
After 13 holes had taken us 3 and a half hours we decided to walk in. On almost all of the holes we had a least 2 groups playing while we and the group behind waited on the tee. Our tee time was 14.15 and when we checked in at 14.00 we were told they were running around 20 mins late. We arrived at the 1st Tee at 14.10 to find 4 groups still waiting to Tee off. We Teed off at 14.45, 30 mins late and then waited on every single shot the whole way. It was the worst I have ever seen. No staff on the course to check or regulate slow play. I think this is an example of pile them high and make as much money on tee times as possible. We paid over 100Euors each for this round and It was a joke. Will not be back to play this course as I live here and I am sure better are in the region.

Lovely course 4/5 stars.
Nice course. Good challenges.

Definitely a notch down from the likes of old course and Victoria.

Almost with a tired feel and not finished either.

Still nice nonetheless.

Great test of golf
Probably the best course condition of all the courses I played. The greens were so quick and true. The course is so much fun, every hole is interesting in its own way and present their own unique challenges. Absolutely superb course and facilities and would gladly play it again
William from United Kingdom
on Tue, 27th Sep 2022
Course was great, however, we didn't complete it. The round was that slow that by the 9th tee 12 players were waiting to tee off. Along with another two groups called it a day after the 9th
Terry from United Kingdom

Course in great condition, rough is tough!
Course in great condition following reopening after the renovation. Greens not especially fast, but very smooth and true. The real killer is the rough which is a couple of inches long and will swallow your ball.

To be shut for a whilr
We drove past the course yesterday and it looks like Dom Pedro have used their maintenance budget elsewhere. I doubt they plan to reopen Laguna for the foreseeable future. But let's hope it's not shut for good🤞🤞

Looking a little worse for wear round the car parks and tracks this course nevertheless provided a great test with tricky greens and a variety of challenges.

Greens very good.

Laguna, is fairly standard in terms of presentation, difficulty, & condition & this is obviously reflected in the price of the green fee, but still a good experience.

Joué deux fois sur ce parcours, les ferway et les greens sont parfaits, la longueur des par 4 de la folie, pour nous.

Laguna has improved in recent years and is in great condition with some very testing water holes. The course looks good and we always find it an enjoyable challenge.

Carl from United Kingdom

We were a group of 5 split into a 3 and 2 and played Pinhal on day 1 and then Laguna day 2 with another trip to Pinhal day 3.

Laguna is the more challenging with lots of water and some interesting slopes on the greens. The greens are not ridiculously fast (like La Manga last year!) which gave us a fighting chance of some decent scores, and fun!. Very well run course and a nice steady pace all the way round, plenty of time to make use of the buggy bar for some ice cold refreshment!. Speaking as a very average (Hcp 21ish) social Golfer I would say definitely well worth a visit but there is no shame in taking the easier routes around the water rather than trying to smash it over and ruining your score/day.

Ageing Course.
Laguna was the only low quality experience for us, the starter was very grumpy compared to the other courses and the course In general wasn't in great shape for the amount of money we are paying to play it, having played this course several times in previous years both me and my brother thought that the overall quality of the course had gone down hill a little.

Nice Course - bad Restaurant
The courses of the Dom Pedro Group are all very nice and well maintained.

However, it is completely incomprehensible that only one single menu is offered in all of the group's clubhouses - and even that is not really breathtaking.

I am therefore not surprised that very few of the guests there eat something - after the third time you have just seen it. Too bad.

Denise Hennin from United Kingdom
on Fri, 7th Jun 2019
Great course, great facilities and great location. The food in the restaurant was great as well as the ability to have a shower after the game. As a first time visitor I would have preferred to have played with someone else though although this was not possible due to the course not being busy.

Some very tricky holes with lots of water, but a challenge non the same.

Challenging course ,especially if it is windy .
Course was in lovely condition , practice facilities were excellent and staff were fantastic .

The day we played however ,it was very windy ,and made a testing course extremely difficult for us 16 handicappers .

Would like to play again when it calmer .

Scenic course
Fantastic course, greens in good condition at the moment. Tee'd off at 8am and avoided the worst of the hot weather. Looking at it would avoid teeing off between 12 & 3 to as not to get the hottest weather.

Absolut must. the course is well maintained and the green are beautifull . We enjoyed this course despite all the bunkers surrounding mostly every greens. Holes are not that difficult if you avoid the bunkers....hole number 17 and 18 are the taffest. great time , welcoming is perfect with algarvegolf.net everywhere we have been.the only downside is the price 170 plus 45 for the buggy...a luxury round but not regret. You could walk the course is fairly flat.

Nice but not too challenging. Course and greens in decent condition.

Cart rental is the most expensive I’ve ever had. and they weren’t even cleaned from the previous guests. Neither ice nor water were provided. :-(

Family golf day Laguna
Had a great morning golf , course in excellent condition, we got grouped with a member who showed us around, which was helpful. Greens were a good pace and very receptive. Only downside was losing to my brother in law, first time in years , every dog has its day. Will be back soon. Also carried in 35 degree heat, no problem!!

Top class greens a little slow but other than that a great overall course that has a great back 6 holes and a real test to any golfer great par 5 near the end it's a real test

Pleasant course. Good conditions and suitable for all handicaps. A bit lusher than other courses with slower greens. Thanks for a friendly start Valter. Nice guy. 👍

Wouldn’t complain if I had to play this course every Sunday, weakest of the Dom Pedro courses and yet a lovely golf course with 5/6 fantastic holes.
