The OldCourse - the name saying it all. Situated in the heart of the Vilamoura seaside resort a mere 20-minute drive from Faro airport, this Frank Pennink designed parkland style layout is one of the oldest in the region and renowned all over the golfing world. Often described as the Grande Dame of Algarvecourses, it meanders throughout impressive pinetrees - the principal hazard - over gently undulating natural terrain. In addition to raising the VilamouraOldCourse to new heights of quality, an attractive new clubhouse and adjacent putting green were also built at that time. As with all Vilamouracourses, environmental protection practices are strictly adhered to by means of detailed management systems in line with guidelines established by ISO 14001 standards, Green Globe and Committed to Green programmes.
