Quinta do Vale Golf Course

The Quinta do Vale golf course, which has been designed with the interests of the adjacent property complex in mind, is sure to attract golfers of every level and is a strong candidate for hosting important international championships. Covering an area of 75 hectares, the course is fully integrated into the surrounding natural landscape, taking full advantage of the irregularities of the terrain which give a unique personality to each of the 18 holes.|The ambition with which it was designed is evident in the unusual way that the different holes balance each other out and in the singular features which complement and differentiate them: embankments, lakes, bunkers, hillocks, hollows…. A highly attractive course which is characterised by various levels of difficulty that will be a challenge to beginners and test the skill of more experienced players.

We really enjoyed a good service there. Nearly new buggies in good conditions were brought to us, equipped with a scorecard, pencil and a drink (water) for each player. Nice course, good staff and sunny weather. A perfect day!

Stig Fredriksson2019-02-03
It is very satisfying to see that the bunkers now is in better condition than ever before. This course is the most challenging and interesting in east Algarve and the staff is very helpful and serviceminded.

Ian Brotherston2018-12-04
A really interesting layout which looks more intimidating than it is in my view. There is lots of water but you can always work your way around it. It is in a fabulous location and I really enjoyed this course. The only downside was the greens which were not in good condition - slow, bare in parts and bumpy. This was odd as the rest of the course was in good condition. Recommended and would score more highly if the greens were good. By Algarve standards this is really good value for money.

Martin Osborne2018-09-25
The course was a challenge especially in 34 degree heat but also due to the need to plan your shots and positioning avoiding the many hazards. It's a beautiful course with stunning views and remarkably unbusy

Elaine2018-09-14
Lovely course quite challenging, could not fault the service from reception to bar everyone very welcoming, even got bottles of water with the buggy. Would definately play again.

John Flanagan2018-08-15
The staff in both the reception and the bar/restaurant were very efficient and provided a warm welcome. As a golf course the layout is excellent and provides a good challenge of golf, however the course is currently showing a lack of attention in the areas of bunker management and the quality of the greens where there appears to be a lot of poana grass appearing on the greens, many of which so not roll smoothly. Some of the challenges with the greens might be explained by the recent hot weather but only a small part. Value for money is very good.

Mr verot2018-08-12
Very quiet golf course: not too sure why We’ve all enjoyed our round Challenging, some long holes One of the best one around to my mind

Graham Lucas2018-03-21
We were 4 players, and thought the extra discount applied to 4 with buggies, on an already very good price was great value. We were then impressed with the quality of the clubhouse and surroundings. We the loved the course design - difficult, but most enjoyable, and we will return despite the distance from Carvoeiro where stay.

Michael Saunders 2017-11-14
Great. Lovely facilities, friendly staff, and great Seve Balasteros course in good condition. Very happy. First time I have played a Balasteros course, and I really liked it. Not trick (unfair blind shots, etc) but a good test of golf skill and thought. There are some shots that will test your distance, but you will have to think about how you're going to get to the green.... Do it.

Bernd Bachmann2017-04-16
The golf course Quinta do Vale, located near the Spanish border, offers two faces. The first 9 holes are played in the valley and must include some water hazards in his game. On the other hand, the 2nd nine holes are well embedded in the more hilly landscape.

ADRIAN FRASER JONES2019-03-18
excellent course

ian nicholas2019-03-17
Really enjoyed the course and the views from the clubhouse.

Simon Brice2019-03-14
Lovely course, great fun

Mr A van Doorn2019-03-08
To many people on the golfcourse. We make 5,5 hour on 18 holes. The price of a golfset we asked was 35 euro for old and very often used Cobra golfset

Richard Moss 2019-02-25
Course was nice and empty. A typical Seve design. We found the front 9 tough with lots of water broughtinto paly by the fresh breeze. Quite walkable, although one long walk on the back 9 (from 16 to 17?). We would play it again if in the area.

Raul Reis2019-02-22
Good golf course

Ian Humphreys2019-02-19
Great course

R.J.Loyer2019-02-13
I like the golfcourse very much , because how it is situated and variety of the holes

David Askew2019-02-05
Beautiful day .. disappointed by condition ofbunkers compressed because of machine rakers . Need more maintenance very untidy

Timo Salomaa2019-01-04
It is a good course with nice and special layout. It is really fun to play it.

Gillian Travis2018-11-24
Greens in much better condition than 1 week go. Staff extremely helpful & sent us off as a 2 Ball off 14th to beat slower playing groups...….. Love the course & layout as 2 fantastic contrasting 9s. A real challenge & excellent value for money. A must visit as far as we are concerned in the eastern Algarve. Will return as low handicap golfers.

Billy Freeland2018-11-18
Thunderstorms Only played 9 Good Course Greens a little patchy

Gerard Mulder2018-11-06
Course in poor condition, very slow and bumpsy greens

Miquel Torres Oliver2018-10-31
Even though we had a very rainy day, the course was enjoyable and masterfully designed. You need to plot your way in between dozens of water hazards so it is challenging even for low hcp golfers. High hcp golfers may have a tough round and loose a considerable amount of balls. The views of the valley are great except for the series of abandoned buildings since the financial crash in 2007, which is a pity. The staff is kind and helpful and the greenfees and bar prices are very affordable.

A.van Doorn2018-10-17
Fairways excellwnt. Greens in a bad shape. Overall: Good golfcorse

Ken Winter 2018-10-16
Thanks for your help, all went well

Marie Harpur2018-10-15
we loved the golf course and the views are spectacular. Very tough test of golf as you really have to work out the positioning of each shot, great course. The only complaint was the greens, they are in unbelievably poor condition. Quite the worst greens we have ever played on in Portugal. many thanks, Marie Harpur

Michael Dobson2018-10-15
Good value, two rounds of golf and a buggy 117 euro, and a course in very good condition.

Mark Punter2018-10-14
The course was in poor shape. Greens were spongy ( a number of balls plugged on the green), bare patches and very bumpy. Bunkers were worse, compacted and like concrete or no sand at all with only one or two exceptions. The organisation was superb as usual though! Thanks Ron!

Christian Hoornaert2018-10-14
Very good course

Billy Freeland 2018-10-13
Very good

Jackie Robinson2018-10-08
Excellent value even if we did have to start off the 10th and then the 11 th!

David Patterson2018-10-07
The course was very busy but the staff worked very hard to help us get round quickly. I was very impressed with their service

Richard Emm2018-10-01

Geoff Wilson2018-06-08
Difficult.and challenging golf course it very enjoyable experience

Kevin Sanders2018-06-07
Staff very friendly. Course good, although the later greens needed some work.

Mark Hughes2018-05-26
Nice course, with hardly any players on it! Lots of water and it can be tricky if you are wayward off the tee!

Bèr Raemaekers2018-05-16
Als je aankomt op de baan is het niet zo indrukwekkend dan banen in de buurt. De mensen bij de receptie zijn uiterst vriendelijk. En dan de baan in. Start hole 1 par 5......dan weet je dat Seve hier veel verrassingen in petto heeft. Smalle fairways ,eiland greens doglegs en strategisch aan te spelen greens enz....Een baan die zwkwr de moeite waard is om aan te doen....prima hole 19....de moeite waard.

C.J. Vloon2018-05-14
Not busy, but very difficult when it is windy

Mikaela Ingberg2018-05-03
Nice course but not so easy :)

Smits2018-04-24
Superb condition. Staff excellent

Eamonn Ryan2018-04-22
Great course and spectacular golf challenge

Stuart Johnston2018-04-21
Played Quinta Do Vale on 20 April 2018. Great test of golf. Lots of water on front nine which makes you think about your second shots. Course in excellent condition. Designed by Seve Ballesteros. Unique in the fact that it has 6 par 3s, 6 par 4s and 6 par 5s. A real good test for players of all levels. Highly Recommended.

Mal McLaughlin2018-04-20
good challenge nice course

Klaus-Dieter Feldmann2018-02-23
Golf course very dry and except the green in pour condition. All around the fairways without maintenance. Bridges partly broken. Buggys and trolleys better to reserve in advance. We got no buggy and lousy trolleys. Unfortunately we have booked second round for march 2nd.

Carlos Ferreira2018-02-18
Greens are fine, but everywhere else to dry Very difficult front nine

Ernest Robinson2018-02-02
A difficult course, but very enjoyable.

Richard K Emm2018-01-01
Fairways were a bit tired but a good challenging course

phil townsend2017-12-20
Other than the compacted bunkers the course was in good condition

David Askew2017-12-10
Quinta do Vale Golf Course is a fantastic layout greens were fantastic , unfortunately the bunkers need a lot of attention

cathal roarty2017-12-09
fine trek but bunkers were horrendous. Everything else great

Christian Fuchs2017-12-03
Everything was perfect!

Kjell Karp2017-11-29
Excellent condition. Demanding course I would like to play more.

Gill Travis2017-11-22
Lovely course but needs knowing with regard to clubbing, ditches, dog legs & water hazards.......not much really!!! Would play again, but marshalls really need to get a grip. Played behind some people who need to go on practice field rather than on a golf course, even though having a playing lesson with a German Pro!!!

Dave Parsons2017-11-18
Heavy storms curtailed the first round there after 9 holes, but they offered to let me play the remaining 9 on another day. Second round there, no problems. The furniture on the terrace is in a poor state, should have been replaced before now..

Phil Townsend2017-11-13
The course was in good condition and the greens were as good as I can recall. The only thing that let the course down was the wet compacted bunkers

Angiulli Francesco2017-11-08
Very nice location Beatiful golf course I will surely play again on that course Best regard

Doug Smith2017-11-08
A tough course if you can’t hit the ball well. The yardage’s are critical. Play well - score well. Steve Balesteros designed a thinking Course.

Paul Lenz2017-11-07
Overall a good experience. Course good, would have liked a choice on which course we played but it is the busy season. Was the most expensive buggy hire that we paid over 5 previous rounds and there was no ice in the cooler box!. Planned to have a meal following our game but they had stopped serving when we got back, Teed off at 13.30

Catriona Thomas2017-11-05
Very good course available at an unbeatable price. Efficient staff at the desk, and we were able to start slightly early so that we could complete our round.

A. van Doorn2017-11-04
Frontdesk friendly Buggy good Fairways good Greens good.

A. van Doorn2017-11-02
To many players on the course. We played more then 5 hours!!!

Richard Ashley2017-10-23
Great course, not easy. Staff were fantastic, loved it.

María Jesús Fernández2017-10-19
Nos ha gustado mucho , es divertido y complicado. No te deja indiferente. Recomendable buggy sobre todo en la segunda vuelta. Buen estado de mantenimiento. Volveremos

A. van Doorn2017-10-18
Front desk friendly Buggy good Greens very good Fairway good. Rather difficult but nice course. All together prima!

Michael Bryan2017-10-16
Challenging course with two very different nines. Ended up walking as my reserved buggy was not available. Pace of play again poor with no ranger. Summed up by four matches queued on 18th tee! Still worth another visit though.

Mr Stephen Macguffie2017-10-15
Ecellent

Michael Bryan2017-10-06
An interesting challenge in good condition. Well worth a second visit.

Geoff Symonds2017-09-22
Great golf course, nobody playing it, millionaires golf!.

Tom Bettaney2017-09-14
Fantastic golf course but lacked some water. A bit hot when I was there 45degrees. But service was excellent

Phil Townsend 2017-07-18
Excellent, never seen it in better shape

Peter Noonan2017-05-17
Top class course at reasonable price

frank crawford2017-05-07
Much better than I remembered it from last year - a tough course to get used to

Gerry Malone2017-04-12
Most enjoyable, not very busy.

A. van Doorn2017-03-25
Too many people on the course. Very slow playing!!

A. van Doorn2017-03-23
Too many people on the course. !!

Jackie Robinson2017-03-04
Unfortunately they had cut the reeds and so many balls rolled in to the water! Benemor in excellent condition

Matthew Hill2017-01-09
I've also played recently at Quinta do Vale, which is excellent value for money compared to other courses in the Algarve, Give it a try!

David Patterson2016-11-15
The buggies were in excellent condition and the course was in great shape

A. van Doorn2016-10-31
Good golfcourse to day Best in the region

Julian Pallister2016-10-31
too much water for me!

Justin Parker-Hann2016-10-16
Had a nice welcome in reception and they politely warned us if we had enough balls.The first 6 holes are pretty tough and it is easy to see why they asked us about having enough balls as there are water hazards everywhere !!. That said, it does become easier after the initial 6 holes and i found it a lovely course which was Seve's last design before he sadly passed away.My favourite course out of the 4 we played and i think once you have played it once you will find it easier to play the second time round. 8/10

Eric Healey2016-09-10
A very under utilised course at good price

Nicholas Kjelgaard2016-06-26
This was booked as a bit of a make weight, at least that is what we thought. The front 9 can feel a bit unfair almost every shot feels like it is over water, but the back 9 is great. The greens were as good as any we had played in Portugal. I would ask people to make the effort to go out and play it, the course needs money and it will be brilliant.

Jackie Robinson2016-03-04
Fun as usual and cooperative staff

Alan Potts 2016-02-08
Looking a bit tired. But we love the test

A. van Doorn2015-11-13
Difficult Course but well preparerd

A. van Doorn2015-11-11
Difficult but well prepared course

Dave Thompson2015-10-30
Althugh course was very wet it did not spoil the golf. This couse is quite demanding and requires you to think before you take what looks like an easy shot. Reception was very good and helpful Will return.
