Great course, beautiful and constant maintenance happening it would seem. Greens were fast and true. Old Course is best of Oceanico courses in opinion of 18/20 guys who went on trip.

I experienced the usual excellence of the course with a bunch of 15 people. As ever the course was in superb condition, Still a challenge after all these years. The clubhouse is still warm and welcoming with excellent staff. Pricy but always good value.

Beautiful old cork trees surround a throwback to basic, old style course design. Apart from the quirky 9th hole, I find this layout very enjoyable and good golf in a very pleasant setting.

Out of the faldo, laguna, victoria, pinhal this is my favourite. Very challenging design and offers the best views, you really need to be able to work the ball both ways to score low here

The Old course is quite superb but be prepared for it to bite you if you stray off line. The course is lined with very unforgiving trees and big scores can easily be made!!

Yes, plenty of buggies, but I would recommend reserving in advance. 40 Euros a buggie.

To be honest, I think your money is more important than your atire over there. I wore shorts and ankle socks and nothing was said, handicaps are the same, max 24/28 but you see players who can barely hit a ball and if one... More
