Geest course high rates
It’s always a delight to play a real championship course, although rates are going to be rather high

Left or right
Good course. Trees make it tougher than the absence of rough. Buggies are de rigeur to keep up with the expected pace of play. Sign posts are too limited.

The championship course
Really Championship course with hungry fairway bunker and fast „glass plate“ greens. We really love the cypress- and olive trees looking a Bit like Toscana.

Fabulous Victoria!

Great condition even in January. Greens are slick and quick.

Back 9 is brutal with all the water (for me as a 24 handicapper) but plenty of space for the straight hitters.

The winter green fee price made it really good value playing here.

A 4.5 hour round was long but acceptable for the location.

A good but tough course
Dom Pedro courses are generally nice and well planned. Care and finish are okay/good when it comes to greens and bunkers. Unfortunately, the feeling is of a weak commercial will as there are no offers on balls, no takeaway solutions for drinks / snacks / sandwiches. The restaurants have larger menus than they can handle and it does not feel like the owner has any sense at all of the service that a golfer appreciates. It seems more important to have a dry and non-commercial environment than a selling and for the golfer, well-thought-out service.

Good but far too busy
A course in good condition with excellent greens but they simply let too many play . We were a 4ball teeing off at 1.30 - the 2 ball in front hit their 1st shots and 2 nd ones approx 50 yards each ! I understand the need to make money after covid closures but !!! To be fair they kept ahead of us - just, by the time we got to the 9th it was stacked up and on the long par 5 there were 5 groups playing the hole . The poor 2 ball behind us walked off around the 13th . We played 17&18 in complete darkness and I parred the 18th so now I play with permanent dark glasses !! Thank god we payed 79 euro and not the 130 daytime green fee .

Wonderful course for the experiend player
Wonderful course with many water hazards. You will need a stroke saver to avoid the blind water on the back nine! Stay out of the tricky Bermuda grass rough.

Yep - lovely course 👍
Third time playing Victoria - the course never disappoints, a great mix of holes and a true test for any standard of player. Greens excellent. The only slight issue is that we played the 18th in near darkness - our twilight 14.50 tee time should have been fine but the round duration of nearly 5hrs isn’t really that acceptable given that the course is typically full, many with buggies.

Truly excellent... again!
In my opinion, the best of the Dom Pedro courses. Played it many times and it has never disappoined both for condition and service. Excellent range of holes, long but playable and a good test for all abilities. Always the first course on my list whenever in Portugal.

Good, quick and expensive
Good course, a bit of Florida style, great condition, only the rough is very heavy. Front nine are more hills, the back 9 have a lot of water. In September overpriced, buggy for 55€ is to much. Not much people play it, I was in in 3:10h
Michael from Ireland

A serious test of golf for even then best , great condition , greens fast and rough dense , a real championship course for serious golfers and enthusiasts alike . Best course played in Algarve so far and the gem in Villamoura

Happy Golfers
Exactly what you would expect from a course of this class, from the moment we arrived to playing & leaving the welcome & service could not be any better,. This Championship Course is absolutely outstanding & a true test of your golfing ability & mentality.

The presentation, condition & attention to detail is amazing.

Well done to Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course. 1st Class.

Great course poorly marshalled
Victoria is a great course, testing layout with a variety of tees to suit any standard of golfer. Greens, tees and fairways all in good condition even when we played in mid November. The enjoyment of the round was only let down by the pace of play, our 4 ball played the front 9 in 2:00hrs but caught up with several groups in front on the 10th tee and played the back 9 in nearly 3hrs sometimes standing on a tee for over 10mins, no marshalls appeared at any time to keep things moving.

Championship Challenge.
Can't fault the experience at Victoria, the course is a great challenge. Used the driving range and putting green on several occasions as well and all good. Only downside was that when we played it was the season and club rental switch over so they had a limited amount of clubs to rent for my Dad so we thought he might not have any until they got some from one of the other courses.
Erwin from Portugal

Beautiful and challenging course
Beautiful and challenging course. The back nine have lots of water and large bunkers, lovely scenery and very often long, wide fairways, but with little shade.

Victoria GC, Vilamoura
6th visit to Victoria, and the Course as always, was in excellent condition.

Disappointed that Buggies were €5 more expensive than other Don Pedro courses. Yes, the buggies are state of the art, but this was implemented by the owners. Also disappointed that range balls are no longer complimentary at the course. Undoubtedly they have a magnificent course at their disposal, but if they keep taking from customers, there are plenty of other options close by.

Very disappointed with this course especially as the Portuguese masters is going to be held there in October, not impressed had to pay €30 for buggy when booked

Expensive course that is not properly maintained.
This is a great course. Unfortunately it was in bad shape for our visit .Large areas with no grass and bare clay . These were not marked GUR which was was way below standard you would expect from such an expensive course .In present poor state definitely not worth the 137 euro plus 50 for buggy and 6 euro for few practice balls .Management said their o nly interest is the Portuguese open whick is a cop out when charging such a high green fee . Give this one a miss as there is much better keep and cheaper courses in area ollie

Sadly i must say that this course is going in the wrong direction. I´ve played here o couple of times since 2009 and has always been impressed. This year i regret that we spent a day playing Victoria. Greens were ok but the finish overall is not ok. The whole area seems tired. This course is not worth the money any more. Put them into Old Course, Vale do Lobo or Qiunta do Lago instead.

A Wonderful Afternoon
Pro shop staff immediately greeted me and got me organized with a trolley and very nice rental clubs (Titleist). I was off the first tee 20 minutes ahead of my tee time and enjoyed a 3 hour 10 minute round. Course was in very nice condition for early Feb and greens were top notch. Exceeded my expectation. Delightful!!

A real test of golf on a course in great condition
Course in excellent conditions, perfect service, very good practice area.

Very challenging on the back 9 with a lot of water in play, and pretty long holes even from yellow markers.

À jouer sans hésiter !
Superbe parcours. Accueil parfait. Fairways tondus ras et hyper roulants. Green généreux. Rough laissant une chance de jouer un coup correct (mais peu de toucher le green sur les par 4). Beaux paysages et oiseaux. Petit bémol sur la qualité des greens à l'aller cette année. Practices et balles inclus dans le green fee, élevé. Mais quelle expérience !

Excellent Course
Thus is probably our second joint favourite Vilamoura golf course with millennium after the Old Course. Played here many years ago and found it a difficult course to play as grass close to greens and fairways quite long. Now very open - but plenty of water obstacles and still a challenging course.
Mark Sheppey from United Kingdom

great course but quite scruffy compared to the other times i have played it, not great when you consider how much you pay for the course, would think twice about playing again, shame as it is a good course

Three Seniors from Ely
Super course but we found the fairways too fast for us. The catchment areas for the bunkers and lakes were enormous. In fact there was so much run on the ball that often the only thing stopping the ball would be when it rolled into a hazard. Having said that it was a privilege to play at the venue of the 2018 Portugal Open and we will marvel to see the elite professionals tackle its challenges.
Anne from United States
on Mon, 13th Nov 2017
A fine course -- back much more challenging than front. A bit too open for my taste...somewhat uninteresting. We played 8 top courses this week and it was our least favorite. Staff in shop were fine, but no real service.
Andrew from South Africa

Terrific but expensive
Superb course although a bit too expensive. I noticed that before we had even left the Algarve green fees had come down substantially. Next time, should there be one, I will be sure to negotiate harder.
Peter from United Kingdom

The best course around and wonderfully friendly team. A memorable day and par on the spectacular 18th I’ll dine out on for a while.
Laurent from France

Superbe !
Les installations et le resorts sont grandioses. Practice et balles inclus dans le green fee . Magnifique parcours, assez long. Un peu d'eau mais les fairways sont larges. La qualité des départs, fairways et greens est excellente. Tout est calme. On entends juste les oiseuax s'envoler. C'est comme jouer dans un parc ornithologique. Je ne regrette absolument pas le prix du green fee, à la hauteur du parcours.

Very disappointing.not worth the money
Course was in very poor condition and had been clearly cut to tight and has burnt off...perhaps overplayed after Portuguese open...waste of money considering it is the most expensive course to play...

Beautiful course but very difficult, the water features were great but all too enticing for a golf ball
Richard from United Kingdom

Lovely course but overpriced.
Expected a bit more from the venue of the Portuguese masters. Lovely course and very challenging but couldn't help but feel underwhelmed considering it was so expensive compared to other courses in the area.

A very good course but very expensive given the maintenance that is currently been undertaken. Fairways are poor and are scorched.

Officials need to remember the customer that has paid nearly 180 euros to play the course not just be concerned for the 'Portugese Masters' in 3 months time.

beau parcours

plus difficile que le old course (greens très roulants)

temps de jeu trop long à partir de 15h40 avec golfette (4h00) attente d'une mise à disposition d'une golfette

sur les départs, trop de mégots de cigarette

service personnel très bien

A great course and an excellent challange. Dont be fooled by the apparent ease of the1st 9 as the back nine are a significant challange

Best course of the holiday, by a mile!
Best course I've ever played in Portugal. Its the sort of course where I really looked forward to getting to the next tee box and seeing the next whole coming up, excellent fun.

We were dropped off early (7am for a 8am tee off) for our tee time but nothing was open until 7.30 so not much chance of a coffee/breakfast.

We were a 5 but starter allowed us to go out earlier as a 2 and a 3 rather than be joined up with a 2 ball who had originally been allocated similar tee times. Being the first groups out meant we were able to fly round and not having to be paired up with hackers or duffers was a welcome change.

Following the Portugal Masters and very heavy rain the course was in very good condition. Sadly the bunkers were GUR as they were flooded. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
