Overview
More
The Ocean Golf Course features undulating fairways which run alongside nature reserve, before leading gently down to the shores of the Atlantic The front nine are located on a slightly hilly land which characterises Vale do Lobo, surrounded by pine trees with sea view from several holes. The back nine in particular are characterised by spectacular ocean views, with some holes almost stretching down to the beach. On reaching the brow of the hill on the 11th, players come suddenly upon a sight fit to take the most concentrated golfer's breath away. The fairway runs directly down towards the beach and, for the next few holes, outstanding views and Atlantic breezes are guaranteed to make a player's round exhilarating, even if his game is below expectations.

The cart paths at this golf course are appalling, to ask anyone to drive at ninety degrees to the fairway is unacceptable with cart paths so poor. The fairways and greens were in good condition, however the buggies require upgrading. One of the bottles of...More

We had a bad experience because the golf was crowded and slow to death, nevertheless the fairways and greens were in good shape. This golf is too much surrounded by villas that are very next to it. The cart was average without GPS. We gave...More

Excellent variety in the 18 holes on this very good course. Greens were good but some produced too many bobbling rolls to be able to say it is a top course. That's one of the problems with resort courses esp when playing in the afternoon....More
