This course is great if you hit your ball straight and have a good Management course plan. Will suit all handicappers but you want to be on your game. Staff and facilities very good. Weather exceptional.

A group of 8 of us had an 8:30 tee off on a warm October morning. From arriving at the course you know you're in a quality place. The view from the first tee been bordered by the Pine trees is amazing and daunting at the same time.The course just gets better and in parts more punishing as you go... More

I played Vilamoura Old course several years ago and rated it one of the best in the Algarve. The lay-out of the holes is still superb, almost reminiscent of some of those tree-lined courses in Surrey, except that the trees here are umbrella pines. However, it is no use having excellent holes if the greens are as bad as the... More

Despite the newer courses in Vilamoura, the Old Course for me is still the best. With it's quaint clubhouse, good food, and excellent course it is must for any golf visit to Vilamoura. It helps I generally play well there, but the course isn't too long for the amateur golfer, but tight and tricky enough that a provides a fair... More

One of our favorite courses but unfortunately greens have effected with disease. Reception were very helpful and offered to allow us to cancel the booking or play 9 holes and get a credit to play an different course. The rest of the course was as always in a very good condition. We decided to play all 18 holes as the... More

I was really looking forward to playing the old course as i had heard so many great reviews from people. However when i arrived one hole was on temp greens and the rest of the greens were appalling. The worst i have played in a long long time - very wobbly, some slow and some fast, ball wasn't rolling true,... More

Oceanico are a great company and I love their courses, but wow the Old Coirse was terrible! Greens were so slow!! The rest if the course was good but not worth it! Go play the Faldo or Victoria. Oceanicos best in my opinion!

Played the Oceanico Old Course, Vilamoura on Monday and I could not believe the condition of the greens and some of the fairways. The 6th and 13th greens were temporary greens and the others were very hairy, bumpy, patchy and incredibly slow! Such a shame because I have played this course in the past and rank it amongst the best... More

Had heard great things about the quality of the course but how disappointing it was on 6 September. They obviously have a problem with the greens so they have been left long and sanded. There are some bare sanded areas and we were on 2 temporaries at 6 and 13. The tee boxes are also very scruffy. They do say... More

Oceanico Golf Courses (particularly the Old Course, the Victoria and the 2 Amendoeira Courses) are a guarantee of courtesy, organization, well-kept challenging courses and high quality standards. Highly recommended.
