To many players on the course who are not able to
The course was in an good condition, the staff around have been very friendly and helpfull. But: The course was totaly overcrowdet because they let to many players on the course who don't have a handicap or a permission to play golf on a regular golf course. That means: It is occasionally dangerous on the course because of many misshits. The distances on the course between tee and green are a little bit short.

It's a 1 hole course
It's an executive course, nice for a quick 9 hole round. But if golf schools are out it can be boring. Very shot, the spectacular tee box on hole 5 is gone. Hole 6 is the signature holt over a canyon, but from the back tees you barley see the target.

Pine cliffs golf
Amazing experience playing 9 holes here on the Algarve. This was a 5 star hotel / gold club course was in superb condition. As expected prices were on the high side at the bar / shop but for 9 holes only €45 pre booked.

Really lovely greens and course layout was great but bunker condition and pace of play were disappointing.

Also some players were struggling to hit the ball therefore it looked to me like some had never played golf before.

All in all a good day although really busy mid morning.

Not one to miss!
Coming from the Netherlands this golf course on the ocean cliffs is something else! Well kept fairways and greens and very frendly staff. Highly recomended.

Well kept 9 hole par 3, 4 golf course. Perhaps not very challenging for single digit handicappers but fine for us. We played there 18 holes two days ago and decided to do an other 9 holes. No regrets!

Terrible experience - avoid this course.
Disappointed is the nicest review I can give. One of our party suffers from medical issues which requires a golf cart. It took an unreasonable amount of effort to get one. Then he was told his orthopaedic shoes were unacceptable and was forced to purchase new golf shoes because of some stupid course rule. This rude and unsympathetic treatment was the precursor to an overcrowded course, with tees and fairways in mediocre condition, wait times of 10 -15 minutes on every hole because of ridiculously slow play, no refreshment cart, no course marshalling, this course is below any acceptable standard in every respect. Avoid at all costs. Definitely not recommended.
Ruud from Netherlands

Mooie baan
Goed onderhouden en aantrekkelijke baan. Boeken via AGC aan te raden, scheelt op 9 holes bijna € 30,- ! Bijzonder maar waar.

Exceptional experience
Fabulous 9 hole course really suitable for new golfers or established golfers...very well organised re tee times, hire of equipment and beautiful lunch. The 9 and dine offer is extremely good. Staff both on and off course are so nice and helpful.b

Nice course. Frustrating slow play...
Nice course but very slowly played. 2 hours and 20 minutes for 9 short holes. Where are the sheriff???

An enjoyable round at Pinecliff
Nice course for casual round. Course was in decent shape and greens were very consistent. The pace of play and the cross over were quick. Golf shoes are mandatory or rent from the pro shop. Course was busy but not full. Will play again if we have time.
Gerry from Ireland

Great experience
Played pine cliffs yesterday. Really enjoyed the round even though there was some sanding work going on the greens. Short compact course ideal for walking with trolley. Staff member on first and 9th tee acting as starter was friendly and welcoming. Will be back sometime in future

beautiful 9holes with view on the sea
4 golfers in february: nice golf course, with nice views on the sea across the pines; some wait before the devil hole, but it worth it; we were desapointed to find the bar closed at 5 pm, when we finished our round; we will come back

Once in a lifetime, you have to play this course.
Good service and friendly persons.

Greens were very difficult because of the stimp. Bunkers were also difficult to play becauae of the bad maintenance.

Don't think its easy.
Although a nine hole course it offered enough challenges to make it an interesting couple of hours. Some the par 3's lure you in but often come back to bite you if you are wayward from the tee. The first cut rough is partucularly challenging enter that at your peril and dont get too cute trying to get out. The signature hole over the ravine is a not as challenging as it looks but very picturesque. Restaurant staff were very good and food and drinks reasonably priced.

Pine Cliffs
Course is ok but short and expensive for 9 holes. Shocking charges for a pull cart which was a basic pull trolley. Bottle water expensive as well clearly not encouraging folk to return

Pine Cliffs Golf Club
I was a single lady golfer (with caddy husband) and a 12 handicap. I hired clubs and trolley came free. I booked 18 holes and was out with two different groups for each nine, two lovely French ladies then three lovely Norwegian gents.

The course is very attractive and suitable for all golfers as nice wide clear fairways with stunning pine trees, palms and cactii. Very pretty course and not too many hazards.

The Devil's Parlour is a great hole, from back tees a 191yd carry, from yellow tees an impressive 7iron on to the green over the gorge. Take time to soak up the views...awesome!

Downside...was not offered lockers so had to carry bag for whole round. There were a lot of pitch marks on green not Clubs fault but selfish golfers. It was never going to be a fast round and this was not really a negative as we were prepared for that.

All in all, delighted to tick off this course...if back in area will definitely play again.

Such a great 9 hole course
Absolutely stunning 9 hole course, with not a single bad hole. The par 3 over the Cliffs and the view are just incredible. Nice easy walk as well and 9nholes completed in 1.5 hours. Great test and even better visually. Excellent facilities as well
Karl from United Kingdom
on Mon, 19th Sep 2022
Greens were in poor condition and it took 2hr 20mins for 9 holes, waiting on every shot.

€64 for a round without a buggy on a course of that caliber just isn’t value for money in my opinion. Also drinks from the bar are soooo expensive.

Martin from United Kingdom

Fun course, but disappointed with 6/15th hole
Fun course in a lovely setting around the cliffs and resort complex.. Nice practice facilities but short driving ‘range’ so could not hit anything beyond 20m. Play was rather slow for such a short course and unfortunately the signature 6/15th hole was not open/available from the back tees (white). No buggies allowed only pull carts.
Jamie from United Kingdom
on Sun, 18th Sep 2022
Good condition but a pretty short course and only 9 holes, a lot of non golfers there so not the quickest round of golf.

Golf at Pine Cliffs
Enjoyed the first 9, unable to have a fluent tee off for the second 9, 6 young lads tee’s off before me and probably to their tee time however did not offer me through as a single golfer. The couple from Norway invited me to join them who we’re teeing off at 1.08. Other than that the staff are friendly, expensive breakfast though at 16 Euros and 7 Euros for local beer.

Pine Cliff’s Resort Golf
What a fabulous beautifully maintained course, all tee boxes, fairways, bunkers and greens were in pristine condition. I bow my hat to the green staff and to the placement of pins - well, how tempting and becoming….but beware as it could invite trouble on the next shot. Well done, beautiful course, the 6th & 15th are a true test of the player’s ability (back tees are a monster).

Early morning round
Lovely course. I was staying round the corner at a hotel and fancied playing whilst I was in the area.

Only one area for improvement would have been for the starter to inform us when starting that there was other player booked at the same time. I don't mind playing with other but it is best to know when you check in that you should be expecting another.

Good course and nicely challenging to a high handicapper like myself. Green and fairways were amazing

Hidden Resort pearl
Compact nine hole course (Par 32) in top condition (fairways & Greens) with breathtaking Canyon/Seaside view after Tee 6. Perfect to proof how precise is your golf and if you can shape off the tee straight shots (Tee 1) or draw curves with your driver/woods (Tee 3, 5, 7). Absolutely worth playing two rounds (or more ,-)
Martin from United Kingdom

Enjoyed this small course
This course is very well maintained. Not too challenging for the good golfer! But well set out. Staff also very helpful. Beer a bit pricy ( but to be expected) LOL !!

Standard if hired clubs were good.

A hidden gem to get into the swing
Excellent short course which was very enjoyable.

Enjoyed playing the nine holes the second time as I then knew where I was going.

The par 3 over the cliff face is excellent and the tress guarding the 8th green make it a real challenge .

Might even play it again before returning home

Good holiday resort course.
Played 18 holes which was ok as it allowed use to get a feel for the layout. The course was in very good condition in comparison to other mor expensive courses in the area. The greens are small which is to be expected for a course that only plays just over 4000 metres and we’re in excellent condition. My only negative was the signature hole 6th. 197mts from the back tees but you couldn’t see the green and only the top of the flag. It would be better if if the shrubbery was remove to allow for a full view which would then make a real feature.
Sonia from Switzerland

Beautiful hole No 6
Short fairways but not easy to play; especially hole no 6 with a canyon as obstacle.
Benjamin from France

Nice but too expensive
Beautiful design, good for beginners except the Hole 7, quite technical.

I didn't appreciate the staff , trying to rent you everything :golf shoes mandatory at 15€, that was very upsetting.

All in all, good moment but too expensive = 59€ (GF shoes) without a buggy, you can play an 18 holes course for that rate in many other courses of Algarve.

Stunning course with some great scenery.

Holes are well layed out and will it flows nicely.

The devil's parlour is a sight for any golfer !

Very enjoyable experience

Lovely short course
Don't play this course if you're looking for a championship test. DO play this course if you want stunning views and a quick 9 holes. We managed a 2 ball in 1hr 15mins. Course in good condition. Greens great. Highlight is definately the 6th hole across cliffs and a ravine. Rightly named the Devil's Cauldron. I played it from the back tee at over 210 yards. Probably shouldn't, as no tee markers, but hey ho. Watch the clubhouse though. €17 for a chicken wrap! Whaaaat 😫

Interesting Course
This is the 2nd time I have played here. Disappointed this time at course condition in comparison to green fees. Seems excessive for an exclusive resort. If you don’t know the course it can be confusing.

Pine Cliffs : à ne pas manquer pour sa falaise.
Beau parcours 9 trous. Challenging : court, étroit, valloné, des greens protégés par de nombreux bunkers. La falaise est magnifique !

Fairways et greens un peu secs et en souffrance.

Beautiful 9 holes
Very nice 9 holes, fairways and greens very well maintained. We enjoyed this course very much which offer some nice views on the sea and cliffs.

Lovely condition
Lovely course in fabulous condition. This is the 4th time I have played it now. It’s only 9 holes so even going round twice for the full 18 it is quite short (c4,400m) but this means you can get around in 3.5 hours or so rather than the 4.5 to 5 hours that it can take on some of the longer courses. Some amazing views of the sea/beach as it is situated right in the cliff top. The club house and pro shop with the golf academy/driving range is very well set up. Already looking forward to returning again in the future.

Worth playing, but the usual issues with a 9 hole course when you play the second nine - it just clogged up!! Course in not bad condition. The other issue for us was that Food and Drink is very expensive, so be careful!!!

Pine Cliffs - for a stimulating round of golf
Lovely course that allowed my son and I to get back into our golf.

Variety of holes allowed us to test our long and short game; accuracy and variety of shots.

Pine cliffs-Portugal
Not a ‘real ‘ golf course. No par 5’s and only a 9 hole course. Although the par 3 , 6th is a flagship hole!!

A nice leisurely walk for a golf beginner and a fantastic starting holiday abroad course for a lady beginner.

Also poor rental clubs- Wilson or Cleveland only....thx

Even though this is a nine hole course I would highly recommend it. In great condition and well marshaled. Great course to start your trip on. No buggies but free trolleys

You have to play it once in a lifetime...
Nice course, rather simple, no par 5, most holes 300-320 meters. The famous hole 6 (over the cliff) is only 135 from the yellow teebox, but the view is spectacular.

Quite expensive, and driving range balls are not included (€ 6 for 40 balls).

Nice restaurant, friendly staff.
