The Old Course
The Old Course Golf Club overview
The Old Course is perhaps the most renowned golf course in Vilamoura, the Frank Pennink designed Old Course will provide a great test for any golfer.
The central location makes it easy to reach Vilamoura marina and Faro Airport. However, the fantastic scenery that this beautiful golf course has to offer is what makes The Old Course at Vilamoura so special. The superb clubhouse overlooks the 9th and 18th holes, so you can enjoy a drink or two while watching your friends complete their round.
The holes at The Old Course Golf Club are laid out through a pine forest, it is not necessarily for the longer hitters but if you keep your ball in play, you will score well here. The course is very easy on the eye and with 18 fantastic golf holes, however, the real highlight of The Old Course has to be the tough par-4 8th hole. Its SI 1 rating is no lie and it requires a precise, yet long drive followed up by an equally long and precise approach shot to a green which can be particularly fiery especially in summer. You will do well to make a par on this hole.
