Back 9 Mind Games
Our favourite track of 2023, after a gentle introduction on the front 9, the real fun begins on the back, with water everywhere!

Would loved to have gone back and played in 24, but the course is currently closed for renovations….

Great course and facilities
It's a great course, long and unforgiving, fast and ondulated greens

Lovely course but very very slow!
A tough test off the back tees, but comfortable from the tees of the day. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition when we played. Plenty of water to gobble up your balls, particularly on the back nine. The only negative was the time to play, it was 5hrs10 for us which is clearly unacceptable and felt extremely slow. The second time this year for us. The marshalls must do a better job with slow groups holding the course up.

Do not book a tee-time within 5hrs of sunset!

Really Enjoyable Round on Tour Course
Course was in good condition with excellent greens - true and reasonable pace.

Some very good holes with plenty of space of the tee to get driver out.

Nice clubhouse and good service.

Buggy’s well equipped with water, sand and club cleaner.

Pace of play was ok at 4 hours for a 3 ball but should have been better marshalled as 2 ball holding up our group.

The course to play in Vilamoura
Best course in Vilamoura, in very good condition, interesting layout. Played it on a quiet August midday in less than 3 hours. Definitely one of the best courses in the Algarve. Why not 5 stars? For me there is no world class course 5 star course in the Algarve

Fairways and green in very poor conditions ! No pleasure to play this course. Everything was to dry. The balls bounce off like magic balls ! A horror to play and far too expensive from then on.

Just a little bit tired, but still a fave
The course is in decent shape. The greens and bunkers were just fine, while the fairways were a little dry. It is challenging but still playable for we normal golfers. The starter was super helpful and sought us out on the range to suggest we start early.

Slow play spoiled the day
Very good course with excellent greens. Unfortunately the afternoon was a bit spoiled by slow play and over-booking. Water hazards on the back nine slowed everything up. It seemed over-booked for the twilight session. Would think twice about playing again at the price.

Great course and layout, challenging but still open enough for a high handicapper. Greens and tee boxes were in excellent shape. Should be cheaper this time of year.

Très bon golf mais avec 50km/h de vent, c’était très difficile

55€ for a buggy is quite excessive

Golfing Heaven at Victoria
Played Victoria on the 27.12.2022 and it was a real treat. The Greens were running fast on the stint and demanded all of your attention which was great. Tees, Fairways and Bunkers were immaculately kept. This course demands your attention on pretty much every shot. Will definitely return. How did Oliver Fisher shoot 59 here!

Proper challenge - great course
Excellent course, a little long, even off the yellow tees ( so golf cart recommended). Victoria corner with the challenges of water left and right were a highlight.

A proper championship course with all that entails. It is tough, with the back nine a real challenge. Bring your A game!
Kathleen from Switzerland

Challenging but playable
It's a wonderful course but a little 'tired'. What used to be really special now shows signs less than perfect maintenance. Still, nothing to complain about on most fairways and greens - tee boxes also okay.

Gary from Bermuda

Nice course but really slow and no effective ranger. Over 5 hours of torture.Rough was way too high for public play. Gps was helpful, only one of these courses that had it. Service was terrible- don’t expect any and that’s exactly what you will get. Really surprised that this course is conditioned we’ll enough for a European event
Brian Mccluskey from United Kingdom

Awesome course
Great course in Great condition but it is long with narrow fairways and punishing rough. Lot of water on back 9. We played the week after the Portuguese masters. You'll need your A game
Paul from Portugal

Very nice course forgiving on the front but the 11, 12 and 18 holes à quiet a challenge!

I will definitely come back

Slightly disappointed
This course is the venue for the upcoming Portuguese masters. All of our party were left underwhelmed to a point. It is a long and difficult course and I suppose we were expecting more. It is slightly rough around the edges but perhaps it’s supposed to be like that, not sure. Fairways and greens are excellent. Clubhouse was underwhelming with average food and service.

Stunning quality golf resort.
Wow! What a resort and setup. Amazing course, gps buggies. On a level of quality with Quinta but so different nonetheless. Absolutely amazing course design and challenging water towards the end. Fantastic. Will only get better as it ages.

Out of town destination resort feel.

Victoria - Vilamoura
Yo can see why this course is being used for the Masters. The holes are challenging but fair. if the wind gets up (As it did on Sunday) now it becomes a different beast. Loved it

Lovely course but pace of play a problem
Obviously a very good course and a treat to play on, but it was just a little rough round the edges - probably the aftermath of tough times caused by COVID. We weren’t exactly given the Rolls Royce treatment you might expect for the hefty green fee either . Front nine wasn’t bad at all but course was log jammed on the back nine. The experience wasn’t helped by a five ball in front (!) and a group behind who twice teed off before we had played our second shots, and each time a ball bounded beyond us. The member we were playing helpfully placed a call to the clubhouse and, for the first time, we saw a Course Marshall who sorted out the etiquette issues but not the painfully slow pace of play. By the time we finished, despite being on time for the front 9, we were more than 40 mins behind for the back. Waited a long time on virtually every shot… Maybe we should have avoided Saturday afternoon ???

Enjoyed this course, but a bit disorganised, with tee times had to wait a while to be paired. Bit pressure due to not having distance from players , quite congested

Great course
Wonderful experience on a long but fair course. We played off the back tees and the slope gave me 4 extra shots. The course had plenty of water but you could avoid. We both played to our handicap. 5.5

Excellent course, very good condition, great greens, great staff, very friendly, good food and drinks, no one felt rushed, practice facilities excellent, GPS on buggies a bit overly protective of the no go areas but did not impact overall enjoyment of the round

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

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.
Richard from United Kingdom
on Sat, 8th Jan 2022
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.

Lars from Sweden

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.
bernard from United Kingdom

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.

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

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.
