Kathleen's Course Reviews and Scores

Pinheiros Altos
Best Value in the Area
Tue, 23rd Apr 2019

On the plus side, there are 3 9 hole courses to choose from. You can also chose from normal, twilight or early bird bookings. In addition, range balls are included in the green fee. The range itself offers a short game area that is large enough. The course is in good condition, with the occasional divot hole on the fairway or hard area around the green (found on almost all courses in the region). The greens are fine.

Good value for money

Love the early bird play on this course. Finishing 18 holes in less than 4 hours (walking) without any stress or waiting is a pleasure. The course is in fair to good condition and the greens in good to excellent condition. There are some interesting holes to keep things from getting boring. There are 3 different 9 holes, of which we played the pines and olives. The driving range would be the best in the area if they would replace the carpet covering - it tends to be too hard. There is a short game area which is large enough.

So much potential .... but

On the positive side, very friendly reception and helpful starter. The course lies fully in nature with views unobstructed by real estate development. Unfortunately, while the fairways are easily playable and the greens in decent condition, the course cant really be considered in good condition. In addition, the pace of play was slow to say the least. The first 9 went okay, but holes 10 to 12 took almost one hour to play. That and the extremely strong winds led to to stop after 12 holes. A pity, as the course layout was interesting and the conditions playable.
Vale do Lobo Royal
A real pleasure
Sun, 7th Apr 2019

Of all the courses we have played in the Algarve (at least 12), the VdL courses and the Royal in particular have the best fairways. It is such a pleasure to be able to hit a ball from grass and not stubble or cut-to-the-level-of baldness so-called fairways. The greens are immaculate, although not lightning fast (which we dont need anyway). There were a few hard areas around the greens, but not nearly as many as on every other course in the region. The course has many great holes and only a couple which seem squeezed into the landscape.

The course is in decent condition (some of the fairways on the Pines 9 holes are a little ratty, but not terrible). The greens are in good shape and puttable. Finishing with a par 3 is not usual. The course offers early bird tee times, which mean faster play (not to mention lower prices).

More like a 3.5 to 4. Good value for money. Greens were in very good condition, while the fairways were occasionally a bit ratty. Winter rules were posted, which was helpful. An enjoyable round and not too crowded so no waiting.
Vale do Lobo Royal
A favorite

The course is in excellent condition, with the nicest fairways (mostly) in the area. We really enjoy this course except perhaps for hole 17. Playing the early bird slots are best, as there is generally no waiting and we can finish the course in 3 hours.
Quinta da Ria

Quinta da Ria
Attractive course
Tue, 8th Apr 2014

Nice course to play, with ocean views on several holes. Layout on the first 9 compact at times - we heard fore a lot. Fairways were in pretty good shape. Greens were in good condition, but the areas just outside the greens alternated between clumps of long grass and rock hard dry spots. This is not terrible, but could be better. With the course fully booked, we had 5 hours to finish.
