Oceânico O'Connor Golf Course, perfectly complements the Faldo Course, whilst taking advantage of the rich valley soil, in contrast to the arid hillside, this course offers no less of a challenge, requiring accurate play.|The front 9 holes encounter a number of lakes, the 3rd being recognized by a Moorish relic situated on a island in the adjacent lake. Holes 7, 8 and 9 offer a particular challenge, where the water hazards could force a lack of concentration. Hole-10 leads play away from the northern boundary, setting up the challenge for the inward nine. Large bodies of water and meandering watercourses will test players all the way to the 18th.
Driving up to the clubhouse you could sense that this was going to be a great experience. All of the staff were excellent - friendly , polite and helpful. The clubhouse is superb with first class facilities. The course was in excellent condition, lovely fairways and quick greens. The views from the clubhouse terrace were quite breathtaking.
A beautiful golf course within fantastic surroundings. Not the cheapest round of golf but the facilities are superb and well worth treating yourself. Course in great condition and the staff most friendly.
great course great price
A wonderful golf experience. Not the cheapest round of golf but well worth playing there just to to sample the wonderful course, unbelievably friendly staff and the whole customer experience. It feels like a real treat to play there.

Parcours plaisant demandant moins d’effort physique que le Faldo
Lovely course very tough challenging holes.
Very good enjoyable golf with friendly staff. Brilliant value with the winter special deal.
Layout good & generous off tee. Course & Greens poor. Statilite on buggies didn’t give yardages. Overall a bit disappointing
Excellent course enjoy by the whole group.
Course not to it’s usual standard, fairways and greens heavily sanded. Regards Barry
We had need 20 Balls????

Loved the course
Fantastic clubhouse with great facilities
buggies ready on arrival, we all completed the round
Great course, will return next year we hope.
Parcours formidable, incroyablement entretenu Un plaisir à renouveler sans modération !
Great course in good condition.
The O,Connor Jnr course was in great condition. Maybe the best we have played this year. All the fairways were in tip top condition and the greens were fantastic. I know they have prepared the course for an international junior event for next week, so good to know they have it spot on..

Superb day out
Pace of play was slow and the stewards wouldn't do anything about it
First class course which I cannot find fault with. The greens are superb and you have to be 100% correct when reading the line of putts as there are the subtlest of breaks which take your putt offline if not read correctly. Overall a wonderful course.
Very disappointed with the speed of the greens, don't think they had been cut,
Great course but a slow round
Very good experience all round with only comment being we could have done with a buggy earlier than 10mins from the golf club.
5:30mins for a round if golf is too long. The reason they are letting too many players on the course.
Magical. Course was exceptional in every department. The service was excellent. Very, very impressed.
Great course, great service, only issues are the greens could do with a little work, and the issue with theft from buggys was a little worrying! But I love this course one of best I have played in Portugal
OK. The club seemed to be improving over a visit last winter.
a great set up and a less challenging but still very enjoyable golf course, we scored better so naturally enjoyed it more.
Good but twilight start at 14.40 is too late to get 18 holes in before it’s gets dark
Played before - a very top notch experience - but it is rather more expensive than other courses we played
Excellent, very professional set up, need to be there slightly earlier as take time to get clubs processed and load onto buggies, thi sis tough when have an early tee time
Really enjoyed playing here again, a much more playable holiday golf course than the Faldo. Rated this 3rd

guter Zustand, langsames Spiel 5 Stunden
Good course and well kept. Easier to play it first time.
We picked the hottest day of the year. But a really nice course with some tricky holes. Got to keep concentration which is difficult when it's so hot. The greens were not as quick as the practice facilities so quite a few lagged putts. A great layout to be enjoyed along with the welcoming staff, who look after us golfers well.
Awesome course, although very tough in the wind.
Beautiful course, the best of the 5 we played. Quality.
1st Class, would love to return. Extra touches not received at other courses.

3rd time we have played the course, always in great condition, all 12 players enjoyed the experience.

Shabby around the edges and for the money not sure great value.
Exellent golf course. The course is full of variety.
Played it for 1st time, enjoyed the experience. Staff excellent.

Generally good condition, and the usual excellent service on arrival. However, the Greens did play extremely slowly
Great day at O'Connor. The best greens we have played all year.
Not overly keen on the course, you start it and it has nice feel but after 18 holes which all seem the same it is a bit boring. Also as 3 men playing being partnered with an old lady was not a good experience. I would highly recommend they remove the reeds so you can see the shot over water it would be far better than looking at yet another shot over reeds.
Lovely course and in excellent condition for a resort course. Only criticism would be bunkers, sand too compacted, probably from all the watering. Splash shot was not possible, almost everyone was like playing off fairway. Best hint - stay out of bunkers. Play O'Connor first, Faldo probably just shades it.
VERY GOOD NO PROBLEMS
Excellent condition, a great day

At this course we have been rather surprised about the level of maintenace. For the price of the greenfee you expect better conditions of fairways.
Onlt played 8 holes due to rain but the course was great and the greens very good. Would like to return.
Very playable and enjoyable course. Much easier than the Faldo course.

Marco our minibus driver to and from the golf courses was excellent.
Hat uns am besten gefallen, super Platz
Fantastic day weather had changed and the Golf Course played fair
