Bristol Society European Tour Organiser
- Well this truly lived up to all the hype! What an ABSOLUTELY amazing golf course! A proper journey course that’s so immaculate and well designed that it earns the prestige (and price tag). Service - like the course- is second to none! Fairways were slightly brown which is commonplace this time of year (Jan) but this in no way detracted from the beauty of this venue. Practice facilities were amazing (with their own cafe!) and the little touches made it ever so more special (engraved enamelled bag tag, shaped tin containing marker and repairer, free buggies, planners etc).
To be fair, she’s a bit of a brute in a breeze and some were perhaps a bit intimidated before we even set off, but everyone emphatically agreed it deserves its title as Portugal’s No.1 golf course (and we’ve now done all the Algarve tracks less Faldo!).
If you’re teetering on a descision whether or not to play this course looking at the price tag, just go for it - you’ll not regret it! (which I’ll caveat by saying - if you’re a high handicapper who struggles to carry a tee shot 150yds - it might be worth waiting until your game improves. Although you’d revel in its beauty anyhow!)
5 Star / 10 out of 10 venue!
