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.

Quite easy
Expectations were mayby more, only one challenging hole. I feel it is a bit overpriced.

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!!!

Tolle Aussicht aufs Meer
Kurze aber sehr abwechslungsreiche Bahnen; es lohnt sich, diesen 9-Loch Platz 2x zu spielen.

Lovely little course with a brilliant academy set up and well kept. Rented clubs are ok for high handicapper’s like myself.

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

Lovely round of golf at Pine Cliffs. Thank you for arranging it for us

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.

Philip from United Kingdom

Relaxing and pleasant track but grossly overpriced
Course conditioning average, greens pitted with pitchmarks and occasionally poor quality. A relaxing, well laid out track and not over challenging, although two or three testing holes. Green fee extortionate for what you actually get, and whilst a fantastic view from 6th, not enough to get you to return at these rates.

Sunday afternoon at Pine cliffs
Not really challenging, but relaxing to play on a hot sunny Sunday afternoon. Fairways were good, greens had a lot off pitchmarks and the bunkers looked like they had never been raked before. Staff was friendly, but they worked as to be expected on a Sunday in Portugal.

Okay course, but not very challenging.
Scenery is nice, the course is not really challenging.

Unfortunately, when we arrived it was not possible to warm up by using the driving range , as it was closed for weekly maintenance. If we had known this, we would not have booked this specific tee time.

Excellent Course, well maintained. Great for tourists looking for a quick round with their 45e promo offer (set of clubs included).

Would highly recommend!

Some another impression on Portugal cliffs
Very interresting golf course, good invented but quite easy, if compare with other golf courses in Europe, with interesting views on the Atlantic Ocean, especially holes no 5 and 6. Surprisingly 6th hole (over the canion/cliffs) was the easiest for me. I highly recccommend to visit this golf course during staying in Algarve - Portugal :)

Very nice but fairly short 9 hole course. Very suitable for beginners of every age and will help any players short game.

Great 9 holes course
Great 9 holes course, tee boxes could be better, greens superb, 19th hole also worth the wait.

Fantastic Course in great condition
Brilliant course, every hole has its own challenge. Staff were very helpfull and professional. Facilities were great I used the driving range before hand. Signature 6th hole doesn’t disappoint! We’ll be playing again if I’m on holiday in the area.

Although only nine holes, this lovely resort course was a pleasure to play. I was teamed up with a member who helped me navigate around the course so thank you Ginge! Some interesting holes and the signature 6th is a lovely hole and a real challenge. The food in the restaurant and all the staff on the course were great - staff extremely polite and helpful. Would recommend.

Nine hole wonder!
Long walk to get from the road to the Pro Shop but once there the course, bar area and shop are very good. Challenging nine hole very well tended. Would return some time in the future

Very nice course even only 9 holes you can change setup by simply playing from white tee one round. Very good in shape and beautiful setting!

A Gem of a Small Course
Really enjoyed this course. Yes it’s only 9 holes and is quite short but it is still challenging as you have to play the course not just long shot after long shot which many courses are. The signature hole 6 is quite special. Only really played here as we were staying at the resort but so glad we did.

5 superb holes packed in a very nice 9 holes
Very nice 9 holes course. The Devils Parlor (the 6) is surely a legend but holes 3, 5, 7 and 8 surely would fit in any “big course”. We did a 2*9 and really enjoyed it . A shame the clubhouse closes early as we had plenty time left after 7 to enjoy a drink :) Worth considering a quick visit if you are around ....

Golf at Pine Cliffs
Ann and I were very impressed with this 9 hole golf course, it’s in brilliant condition, greens very tricky and fast, not the longest of course but still testing and great for playing a friendly round of golf with my wife,lovely set up and views to match. We stopped after playing the first 9, had a coffee and some nibbles, and were about to head out to play again and ended up playing with another couple and it made the day even more enjoyable, definitely worth a visit 👍

Very nice course. Short but it´s good for senior golffers in our age.

Course is in very good condition and the young man at the reception was very polite.Good service. My wife was very happy to play there.

Pine Cliff Folly
I have to start by saying I was a little sceptical about playing a nine hole course ....twice......but having played 9 my scepticism was misplaced. This is a great course. Beautifully laid out. Well designed holes in a beautiful cliff edge setting.

Compact so no traipsing miles between holes.

All in a great days golf. A big thx to Algarvegolf for their help with booking

Very good for a 9 hole course
Although only a 9 hole course, it really was very nice. The par 3 6th hole is terrific having a 197m carry over the cliffs from the championship tee; we shouldn't really have played it from the back tee but none of the greens staff seemed to mind. The greens were a bit scruffy but that's probably due to the weather. Easy to walk, no buggy required.

A slow walk in the park by the sea
Nice and cosy 9 hole course for tourists and families who are not in a hurry. Some kodak moments as well. Prepare to wait on every tee, so bring your camera or a good book. 63€ for nine holes is just too much..
Michael from Portugal

Nice convenient course, but pace of play too slow!
Enjoyable 9 hole course (played two nines). In reasonably good condition. Only issue was the slow pace of play. We were booked for 2:00 pm but only teed off at 2:20 pm due to the backlog of players. And our round took nearly 5 hours due to the slow play. There seemed to be an unusually large number of players who had not played much golf before and who could only hit the ball 50 to 60 yards at a time.

Can't wait to come back
Loved this course. Played 18 holes twice and can't wait to play it again in the future. Fairways and greens are both perfectly maintained and the practice facilities/club shop are both first class.

Plan to come again later on in the year.. the resort is stunning!

Nice course, on a small footprint, great signature hole playing over the cliff by the ocean.

Reasonable value for money

Nick from United Kingdom
on Mon, 9th Apr 2018
Lovely surroundings. Smart club house and shop. Starter was friendly and efficient. Nine holes. Good practice area.

Holes were generally short and reachable in two from the back tees. Not a challenge for good golfers of less than 12 handicap or so.

The issue - slow slow slow slow play. There are too many non golfers on the course. We played 18 and it took us over 4 hours, which is ridiculous considering it’s lack of length, and we walked it.

Worth the €50? Probably. Would we play again? No.

could be a rip off
what a great little course, superbly maintained and quite tricky, my only negative is that we tried to book for an extra round and baring in mind had paid 52 euro for 18 holes through Algarve Golf . net were quoted 60 euro for 9 holes at there pro shop we declined their offer
David from Canada

Very enjoyable rounds........course does not play overly long but the views are amazing.......course and pro-shop staff very friendly and helpful.....greens and fairways in great shape.....we have played several rounds to date and, weather permitting, will rebook several more times before our return to the cold arctic climes of northern Alberta, Canada........we will be back to the Algarve.......Dave and Jennifer W.

Joli 9 trous
9 trous assez court, bien entretenu, avec quelques surprises au bord de la falaise. Beaucoup de monde, donc un peu d'attente. Le restaurant est très agréable et bon, le practice à deux pas. Et le personnel très sympa. Prix du green fee très correct pour la région. Vous pouvez faire deux tours pour le prix d'un au pro shop avec algarvegolf.net

Short 9 hole Course.
Short course in very good condition. Right course to practice short game. Some delays, but not too long. Good walking course. 6th hole worth photographing. 9 hole course, so playing partners can change.
