This is now our local course and I have joined as a full time member this year, which enables me to invite up to three guests each round at much reduced rates, plus play on any of the other Pestana courses. We like this course...More

4 of us played on our annual golf trip. I like the course, it has a tricky uphill par 4 with a swine of a sloping green to start and meanders through some residential like a lot of the courses do on the Algarve. It's...More

The golf course is still under construction and is a relatively young course. However the views are spectacular, especially at the 13th hole. They have a number of 'balcony' platform tees which gave a perfect view of the course. The experience would have been perfect,...More
