Returning for our 8th year we found the experience to be poor. As a two ball we were paired with another couple. We are both 15 h'cap , social ,club golfers who have been Golf Club Members for 20+ years each. The starter introduced us to the other couple on the 1st tee and they told me to tee off.... More

Now this is what you call a good quality course. Having come from golf in Dubai it is hard to find places that impress, but Quinta South certainly did. From the welcome, the pro shop, the Tee Boxwa and manicured fairways and dare I say bunkers... the place is immaculate- even the buggies were great with soft moulded leather seats... More

Lovely beach here but access is a bit of a walk over quite a long bridge but worth the effort. Apart from the beach, hotels and golf courses they do have a shopping centre with some smart shops and restaurents. We come to Vilamoura every year and tend to visit this area every two to three years. The beach is... More

Sadly priced based on its past glories. Not worth the green fees now demanded. Course was untidy in various areas and quite wet and muddy in some others - not sure why as Portugal summer was hit and dry

Our first visit to the south course and although the standard and quality of the course was ok the whole experience was very average As always we discussed with the starter playing golf at a decent pace but they break the rules by teeing groups off too soon and introducing 4 balls walking groups at the 10th and causing excessive...

For a course that clearly gets a lot of use throughout the year the green staff do a good job. But, inevitably, due I suspect to the failure of golfers to repair pitch marks the greens are variable. Parts of the course could have been better. Starters are very good and friendly. It is a very good course but i... More

One of the most enjoyable days golf I've had anywhere from the golf buggy which had the most comfortable seat of any golf buggy I've been in to the bar/restaurant area. The buggy's themselves are equipped with GPS and self police to stop you from driving into certain areas or from careering down a hill at breakneck speed. Staff at... More
