Vale do Lobo Ocean

The Ocean Golf Course at Vale do Lobo resort, features undulating fairways which run alongside nature reserve, before leading gently down to the shores of the Atlantic.|Its emblematic holes are two challenging and spectacular Par 4s, the 11th and the 14th – which treat golfers to some of the most spectacular views in the Algarve - and the Par 3 15th, which runs alongside the beach. The Ocean Course is composed of two of the original 9-hole golf courses designed by Sir Henry Cotton, which were opened in 1968 and 1972. His plans for the merged course became reality in 1995, after his death.

Staff all friendly and helpful. Buggy well presented with cold drinks and ready to go :)

Gareth Toms2019-06-19
Lovely course, good condition and excellent greens

Iain Munro2019-06-16
Vale do Lobo is a great golf resort, both courses are a challenge and in fab condition. The courses were busy and as a 2 ball behind some big groups of mixed ability the speed of play was more than acceptable. The golfing staff were very courteous and helpful. Having played golf in the Algarve for many years this was our first visit to Vale do Lobo and you can be sure it won’t be the last.

Mr Rafferty2019-06-13
One of the best golf courses from arrival to having a coll beer at the end, just perfect.

Mark Hughes2019-06-12
Very nice course, however pace of play is way too slow, and doesn't appear to marshalled

Ian Green2019-05-14
this was the first time we have played the ocean course, having played Royal last year. the facilities, setting and course were superb, and we will definitely look to play the ocean course again next year.

Paul Fernandez2019-05-10
Excellent value, and condition of the course was superb as I have come to expect from the club

Terence Morrison 2019-05-02
The staff were very professional, efficient, and most important friendly. The course itself was very well maintained with some spectacular views, overall a great day’s golf

Steve Richmond2019-04-25
This year we decided to play both the Royal and Ocean courses. We were not disappointed, both were in excellent condition and enjoyable to play. The pre and post golf experience, with the exceptional clubhouse facilities could not be bettered anywhere.

Colin James2019-04-14
Excellent coarse condition. Polite staff a pleasure to play there.

gary rolfe2019-03-25
Vale do Lobo seriously exceeded our expectations, the course was in immaculate condition, and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Ian Ogilvie2019-03-09
Lovely resort course, friendly reception. Good pace of play.

Darren mcgahey2019-02-02
Played twice in two days, first day was very windy and course was difficult second day not so windy and course was fantastic. Would highly recommend the ocean course at vale do lobo.

Padraic Ó Dubhshláine2018-11-28
The ocean course opened with a difficult tee shot that may prove to set the tone of the day, if you get a good one away, you will have a good day. There are some fantastic shots on this course, the first tee shot, the sixth, tenth, twelfth, fourteenth, fifteenth, eighteenth all proving demanding tee shots. There are some memorable approach shots which are again very demanding. The golf course was fair, if you hit a good shot, you were rewarded, if you hit a bad one, it was a mix of being punished, but also the chance to pull off a spectacular recovery. We thoroughly enjoyed the golf course, and would highly recommend it over the royal course. The facilities are top notch apart from the driving range, this is a must play course outside of the vilamoura courses.

Serge Levitan2018-10-08
one of the better course in Portugal Club house very pleasant

Stephen Lee2018-10-06
Great services, very well organised & no problems checking in for our tee off times. Polite professional people, course & facilities were superb.

Chris Smith2018-10-01
WOW !!!!!! unbelievable course, 1st class

Kieran Roche2018-09-14
Challenging course and especially so in the first 9 holes. Nonetheless a really enjoyable round with stunning scenery and very well kept. Only downside was that the course was very busy though still manages to maintain a 4.5 hour round. My playing partners felt it was a little inferior to it's Royal sister.

Darren Johnson2018-09-13
Brilliant course! Treated brilliantly by all the staff

Ade Fisher2018-08-25
Fantastic course, will definitely be back next year.

Jennifer Aird2018-08-21
We played the Ocean course as the Royal was closed due to maintenance. We very much enjoyed it as the course was in great condition, not to mention tbe greens were superb. Fast and very true. Cant rate the course, staff and facilities higjly enough, a must play course.

Stephen Hooker 2018-08-13
Very very good experience - staff really helpful , course magnificent condition. A real treat - thank you

Breen2018-08-13
Thanks for arranging my tee time today, I got there early and was allowed to tee off before time and had a very quick round indeed. Great course and views ??????????????

John Axten2018-08-08
Great course, friendly reception! Perfect!

Craig Monks 2018-08-07
Excellent golf course in a stunning location. Would play again and recommend to others. Very similar to the Royal although preference was Ocean and also less daunting for higher handicappers (Royal much tighter, lined with properties). Clubhouse is excellent with reasonably priced food and drink available to enjoy post-round. We did the volume deal for 8 players (8 for price of 7) with buggies included post-1pm - unbeatable value for money. Look out for the water features on the 9th hole and the approach to the 11th, very picturesque and the 18th hole coming back to the clubhouse with the grandstand next to the green is a great way to finish

Mark Rock2018-07-20
Teetimes staff are excellent, this is second year I have used them and they have been extremely helpfull!!

Kevin Hawkins2018-06-29
Course was probably the best we have played. Excellent green and views to die for

ANDRRW MCCREADY2018-06-11
VERY ENJOYABLE CADDY MASTER AND SARTER GUYS VERY NICE AND WELCOMING STAFF AT DESK NOT JUST AS WELCOMING - WAS 7.20 IN THE MORNING THOUFH ? BUT WE HAD A GREAT ROUND OF GOLF - COURSE IN GREAT CONDITION WE ENJOYED BREAKFAST IN THE CLUBHOUSE AFTERWARDS

Jean-Guy Hottiaux2018-06-03
Outstanding course! We liked it.

Paul Mylet2018-05-28
Great test, superb layout, glad we used buggies here though it’s a tough climb sometimes

Stephanie Brown2018-05-27
So easy to book with teetimes.pt and great golf course

Karl clancy2018-05-16
Course and views 10/10 Service 10/10 Food 10/10 Overall a top experience with a course that was in a fantastic condition. A must play course for any golfer. Take your camera :) Will definitely be back and will also try the royal course next time. Perfect golfing location.

QUINT VERONIQUE2018-05-14
Very beautiful course !

peter jeffery2018-02-24
Course is in Fantastic condition, the whole place runs really well from the reception to the bar staff, all 8 of us have had a great time.

Darren Howlett2017-07-03
My personal favourite even if it isn't the best course in terms of technical design and lay-out. From the beautiful waterfall feature on 9, the majestic high tee-box on 10 overlooking Vilamoura and the rest of the Algarve coast, the stunning view of the Ocean and Beach just behind the green of the 11th and the other holes around the Ocean - wow, take a deep breath, take it all in and appreciate how fortunate you are to be playing golf at such a beautiful scene.

Lenni Vainio2017-04-09
Magnificent ! We like very much this golf club and courses. I recommened this for everybody

Doug Smith2017-03-15
Always a pleasure to play at one of the best courses on the Algarve. From the first class reception to the caddy staff there is always someone to help you. The course today was in good shape. The fairways and greens were showing the benefits of recent rain. Tough conditions in the wind resulted in some pretty high scores. The Ocean course is no pushover. Try it...

westley macey2016-10-19
First round of the week and a stunning start it was some lovely beachside holes after the turn but the 9th hole with the waterfall down the left side of the green approach sticks in the mind wonderful setting and clubhouse

Pauline Treanor2019-07-13
Amazing views - beautiful greens

Ingrid Dobbeleir2019-07-10
Very bad condition ! golf fairways ware wet wet wet !!! Green also not good

Actual played Vale do lobo royal Very good

Trym Anderson2019-06-10
Good course and good food in the reato

Per Andresen2019-06-04
I was happy choosing Vale Do Lobo Royal course today. The course was in excellent shape, and the layout was good for most part of the holes. I would call this a typical resort course. Driving Range was a minus (was only allowed to hit nine irons and less). Good price late in the day

Peter Tholen2019-06-02
Slightly tired, good layout

Ian Price2019-05-31

Michael Hickson2019-05-12
Excellent value !

Ian Hudson2019-05-12
Slow. Course full of 4balls yet Starter allowed pair in front to play as a pair. Daft- can't mix 2 and 4 balls on hoiliday course. . Needs bell over ridge on the 16th to indicate when it's safe to tee off. - it's dangerous. Didn't enjoy the experience. Didn't get called through by group in front. Course Marshal just rode round in his buggy. Course in worse condition than the Royal.

Kevin Kiely2019-05-10
Really liked the beautiful picturesk ocean coarse the staff (starter)Really helpful a great experience

Greg Reynolds2019-05-10
Beautiful course. A must to play

ROLA2019-05-10
First 9 Holes not very interesting...Last 9 Ok, very nice. By contrast, always during all the game, very noisy, machines doing golf maintenance, cutting grass, cleaning course.....it's irrecevable and impossible to play quiet ! Never play there another time...

Peter Sandtorv2019-05-07
excellent conditions. Fantastic fairways and greens.

Pat Connellan2019-05-07

Steven Burton2019-04-26
No complaints whatsoever. Good course and great scenery.

KYHENG2019-04-25
Very Nice golf course

John Coates2019-04-24
A very tough course but has some outstanding holes up to and along the beach. It was in very good condition.

Stephanie Brown2019-04-21
Starter kindly let us tee off earlier than our tee time. Very fast round - only 3 hours 50 minutes.

Stephanie Brown2019-04-19
Excellent. Beautiful course. Allowed to tee off early and didn’t get paired up with anyone else. Fast round - only 3 hours 45 minutes. Great

Rob Thomas2019-04-12
Over-priced for a fairly mediocre course.

Steve Tudor2019-04-11
Super service, very friendly. Ocean course superbly maintained , stunning setting by the sea.

Shane jackson2019-04-11
Beautiful course ! The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Ross Blackadder2019-04-04
Great opening hole, with a lovely view down the course and the surrounding villas. A little bit tighter than some of the others, but great fun off the tee and made you think a bit about what the strategy was on each hole. Greens etc all in great nick. Really enjoyed the club house facilities, excellent bar and huge shop..

Neil McIlwraith2019-04-02
Great day, fantastic course.

Ben Davies2019-03-31

Ben Jones2019-01-29
Excellent course in first class conditions, greens like glass. Great fun.

Bob-Jan2019-01-05
The quality of the course (fairways and greens) is very good for this time of the year. We had a very pleasant round.

Super golf course with views of the Ocean. Enjoyed it as always.

REGIS DELAHAYE2018-12-31
All was very well

Mr Pham2018-12-06
I had great experience from booking tee times, club rental service and the Vale Do Lobo Ocean course is absolutely stunning. Their staff provided great service from the golf reception to the buggy person and also the starter. Should have on course Marshall to keep the speed of play more steady. We were a 2some and barely make 18 hole with 1pm start time. Looking forward to play other courses in the Algarve.

David Matkin2018-11-30
5 hour round so even for nivember a bit busy!

Luc de Booij2018-10-22
Great time with friends and well kept course.

westley macey2018-10-19
Unfortunately this days golf was affected by heavy rainfall and we came off after 9 holes massively disappointed as this is another wonderful course on par with the royal we were offered a rain voucher for 9 holes & buggies to play the following day but we decided after paying additional transfer costs 9 holes weren’t worth the cost and to pay to play the full 18 the club wanted 75 euros each extra just to play the additional 9 which is far too expensive. This doesn’t retract from the quality of the course

Rupert Hornby2018-10-18
Good welcome. Beautiful golf course in good condition. Round spoilt by slow pace of play. The marshals eventually pushed things on after we mentioned it to them but they were not active enough on the first 9 holes which took 2.5 hours.

Dan Carter2018-10-15
Fantastic course and superb facilities

Brian gale2018-10-10
Very good .transfer pick up great,course staff friendly. And helpful,course in great shape.will Return again.will never play a Dom Pedro course again.

Ed2018-09-20
Great course and staff were very helpful on arrival. Buggy was stocked with water and bag loaded for us. The breaks on our buggy were very worn and required a fair amount of judgement regarding stopping distance.

Chris Flinn2018-09-19
Excellent facility, staff were brilliant & the course condition was excellent

Barry2018-09-11
Enjoyable experience. Course set up perfectly for our mixed ability group.

Martin Hyde2018-09-01
Parking was a problem. Would have found it very difficult without a buggy

Nichols Mark2018-08-28
In okay nick. Greens brutally quick. Mix of simple and very challenging holes but little rough on the tough ones. Some herberts on course charging around in their buggies ignoring all the cart rules and not repairing pitch marks but what’s new. Incredibly welcoming of my 12 year old daughter who is a novice. Got round in 3.5 hours having started at 3:30 so no issues there. Some brilliant views. Put it on your list to play and Royal.

SILVIO MAZZOCCHI2018-08-23
Beautiful course Poor bar service

Gareth Henty2018-08-20
Lovely days golf. Course felt a little tired and could do with some attention (eg the paths need repairing in places)

Mark Turner2018-08-15
Still playing!!! Might be here for a while yet!

Wayne Pontin2018-08-12
Good back nine but without buggies huge distance from greens to next tee

Mr R Shires2018-08-10
Great course and in good condition

Peter Hadfield2018-08-06
Course is great! Service provided on arrival is not up to what you receive at The Old Course, Villamoura for example. I also did not have any ice in my cool box and in 30 degree heat would of been appreciated

Fabulous!!

Ian Thomas2018-06-28

John de Jong2018-06-17
The Vale do Lobo Ocean was in a very good state, thank you for advice and recommedation. The pick-up service of my clientes in Paraiso da Balaia and delivery from the clubs was BAD, the driver did not know the place???!!! ( GPS )??

Whittal Williams2018-03-12
Enjoyed the course since it is suitable for all levels of golfer. Buggy hire was expensive -' 2 golfers plus a buggy' specials would be excellent on both vale de Lobo courses.

Andrew Stevenson2018-03-07
Quick reply to email enquiry and as good a deal on green fees as I could get. Second time with these folks and I would use again.

That was my first time playing at vale do lobo. loved it, highly recommended. Francisco Coutinho

Gill Travis2017-11-28
hi Tamar Course very tidy & staff friendly. Greens difficult to hit because of blue flag coding & elevated greens. Suggest move to FRONT/MIDDLE/BACK with different coloured flags instead. Greens difficult to read in terms of pace/line but that was probably just me as I struggled with them! Enjoyed overall but wouldn't rush back. Will look forward to trying 'Atlantico' next time we come to Portugal.

Gordon Reid 2017-11-20
Beautiful course it was nice not to be paired up for once back on Thursday for another round

Phil jennings2017-11-19
Golf course great. People are friendly and organised.

Christopher Hunt2017-11-11
OK but expensive and a bit too corporate. Too many large groups of very loud Brits.

Very nice... Good condition. More nice design then royal course!

Wilson Pitt 2017-11-11
Great course for all range of handicaps

Mr. Holmes2017-11-06
Interesting layout with some long walks from green to next tee. Greens were very good, a bit too pacey for my liking, though it's a shame more people don't make the effort to repair pitch marks properly!

Reinhard Wanninger2017-11-06

Michael Davies2017-10-14
Very good

Peter wheeler2017-10-13
The service was great! They helped me rearrange times in an effortless way. The royal course at Val do lobo is a fun but short sunshine course. In places they seem to overwater the fairways but the greens are great. The ocean is a harder test with a lot of tricky greens. The course is very ungelated so you rarely get a flat lie. Nevertheless an all in all good test for the better golfer. My only negative would be it is expensive when you include club hire, buggies and the round.

Thomas Hodel2017-10-12
one of the best course I ever played world wide

Loved this course. Was slightly disappointed that the green on the signature hole was so poor but the rest of the greens were good and it was a course I'll play again.

Clive Goss2017-05-22
Excellent but expensive

Anthony Coombs2017-05-21
For my first experience of this course I found it in good condition with varying difficulties at each hole. A nice mix of length, undulation, water, trees and bunkering. The pace of play was very slow and we didi not see any course marshalls during the round and we could see large gaps between groups

Bobinski2017-05-16
perfect

Fantastic fairways this year

James Salmon2017-05-05
Ocean course is unbelievable, best experience abroad yet!

Marc Luthi2017-05-05
Fantastic scenery. Beautiful course and clubhouse. Good food.

Dean Ellis2017-05-05
The course was fantastic, Ive now played both layouts at Vale de lobo, in my opinion the ocean was better with some absolutely fantastic views.

Bryan Dick2017-05-01
The best clubhouse in Europe. Course was immaculate.

Paul Maclean2017-04-23
We were looked after really well, the course is nice (although not as nice as the main course), and the views whilst playing round made it a really enjoyable round for us. Some local knowledge or a strokesaver is recommended if you haven't played the course before, as there are a few doglegs and blind shots. Nice day out, really enjoyed it.

Benny Talt2017-04-19
This was the best course we played during our trip, the fairway like a carpet and the greens as fast as a snooker table. 10/10

Michael Bryan 2017-04-09
Rushed onto 1st tee about 20 minutes before booked tee time by the starter. Whilst nice to start early, I had no time to practice putt and failed to grasp all the things the starter was saying about course markings etc which led to a very poor round of golf scoring wise.

Klaus Abraham2017-04-09
Execellent

Micheline Leclerc2017-04-06
second best 9 out of 10...great golf course...little bit confusing too many blind shop

Britta Ries2017-04-06
Best course during our week!

Janice Carruthers 2017-04-04
Excellent course and facilities. Really enjoyed the layout. Would recommend.

Alex Mcghee2017-03-27
excellent course and facilities

Doug Elliott2017-03-25
Loved the course. Buggies too expensive. We had to fit it in on Wednesday because I made a mistake with the booking but both TeeTimes and Vale do Lobo were very accommodating. Thank you.

Rien Schakenraad2017-03-25
Could not play. Waterlogged. Got raincheck. Excellent. Will be back next year.

Axel Heuser2017-03-08
If you are going by feet a good condition is necessary. The fairway of tee 10 is very narrow to fairway of tee 15. If your playing on fairway 10, you cannot see balls, which are hitting with a slice from tee 15. (perigo...)

William Black2017-03-07
Good but maybe too testing for us.

Terry Bird2017-03-05
Good

Ray Good2017-03-02
Really enjoy the whole experience of playing this course. So much variety of holes makes for a great day.

Rob Hollis 2017-02-27
Great course. Trolleys and buggies greatly overpriced

James Swanson2017-02-22
An excellent day at a beautiful course. One slight criticism is the sand in the bunkers was much too soft. I managed to lose a ball which I expertly chipped into a bunker and we never found it, even after raking the area thoroughly.

Tom Broodbakker2017-02-19
Great views

Trevor Ward2017-02-08
Another great day with lovely people, you do a fantastic job and see you in three weeks ??????????

Schreyer2017-01-13
très joli parcours, et l'acceuil très agréable, et très correct par rapport à l'état du terrain. On nous a proposé de jouer l'autre parcours, et avec voiturette offerte car le terrain était pas au top. Merci beaucoup pour leur professionnalisme.

MARIA RODRIGUEZ2017-01-09
We couldn't play because three holes we're in maintenance. They changed us to Royal

Bep Van Der Pas2017-01-08
A beautiful course. When you play badly you can still enjoy the walk and the stunning views.

Bep Van Der Pas2016-12-11
Beautiful course, not the easiest though. An enjoyment to play.

Howard Lockhart2016-12-01
Love the course but it did appear to be suffering slightly. Probably a combination of the wet weather and the great number of players. Only irritation is that we were a 6 and the club treated us as a 4 and a 2 and put others (strangers) out with us. Other than that the staff were excellent.

Patrick J Neary2016-11-27
Lovely course but I preferred the Royal

Christine O'Neill2016-11-16
Parts of Vale do Lobo Ocean course were very wet after the heavy rain. They had heavily sanded the 6th fairway and gave us 5 euro discount of the golf trolleys as compensation!!

David Patterson2016-11-15
I had never played this course before but I am well acquainted with Trafal beach and the excellent Temperus beach bar. The course was excellent but with long distances between holes and very hilly in places. Had I realised that I would need to walk almost 10 miles I might have booked a buggy

Matthew Campbell2016-10-22
Enjoyable walk, pity about the 6th fairway but enjoyable nonetheless

Cliff Mottershead2016-10-22
Played this course two years ago and it was in excellent condition, found it a little disappointing this time as it was not up to the price charged to play.

Ian lewis2016-10-13
Fantastic course

mike williams2016-10-09
Came close to Victoria as the best course , only came second because of the staff at Victoria.

Steve Brunton 2016-09-22
Beautiful, picturesque course and a lovely atmosphere around the clubhouse etc. A touch of 'opulence' that we enjoy.

Andrew Cockerill2016-09-18
The course was in very good condition, particularly so given the amount of 'traffic' it receives. All staff were friendly and helpful.

Paul Oates2016-09-09
Great course and facilities. Great layout with some challenging holes.

Robert van der Struijf2016-08-07
Brilliant course, nice and friendly staff. Only thing... 2 balls most of the times will be a 4 ball... when it is busy.

Carl Hegarty2016-07-24
we like both courses here. they are always in good condition

Andrew Palmer2016-07-04
Excellent course, however buggies could do with course navigation aid.

Darren Howlett2016-06-30
Absolutely love this course even though its not the best technically. If you cant be inspired by holes 11 through 16 when youre playing literally next to the Ocean, have played it every year sometimes more than once for 14 years now!

Martin Breen2016-06-21
Excellent

Steve williams2016-06-20
Yet again superb golf course some spectacular holes, unless your extremely fit would recommend a golf buggy, as the distance between green to tee on a lot of holes is almost like walking a par four,

Phil Baines2016-06-17
Fantastic facilities but very expensive to play. A beautiful course.

Gavin Dillon-Read2016-06-17
Not as good as royal but that's not a bad thing. Still a great course

Trevor Swift2016-06-04
Excellent course with great views

Bill Hunt2016-06-01
Excellent

Robert vincent2016-05-22
buggies way to expensive

William Quail2016-05-16
We all enjoyed the course and facilities clubhouse excellent. One senior bar staff was not very pleasant.

Robert Moore 2016-05-16
All aspect of this club was very good.

Anthony Lockett2016-05-12
Wonderful, but preferred the Royal by a whisker.

Gary Walsh2016-05-10
Good service - good course

Jim Igoe2016-05-03
A good experience and some really nice holes down by the sea.

Paul Whittaker2016-04-08
my favourite Algarve course and in great condition. Buggies very expensive again

Rien Schakenraad 2016-03-21
Good course that is why we came back to it again :-) Great views

derek brazil2016-03-20
First class service and best value

Rob Thomas 2016-03-18
Great course, in great condition. Friendly and flexible staff with good shuttle service.

Fran Mackey2016-03-10
It was my favourite course and we received a warm welcome and the course was in great condition Vale do lobo Ocean The course was beautiful, however the we had really bad weather and had to retire after 9 holes due to the rain. Hopefully we can credit for the 9 holes we did not get to play.

Michael Cavill2016-03-04
Nice coarse

Hermann Heddens2016-02-15
Sehr schöner Platz. hervorragend gepflegt

Glyn Kneebone2016-02-05
one of the best courses we''ve played

Russell Cooper2016-02-05
We played VdL Ocean once and we felt it was the better course. Stunning views and in good condition. Once of the course the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Timo Kahila2015-12-08

Ackermann2015-11-16
Beautiful Course, the views are gorgeous.

Nicola Mick-Kohler2015-11-15
this year really not good - really bad condition - it was so wet!!!

mary tierney2015-11-03
All good

Shane Ryan2015-11-02
very enjoyable but very slow, we were only a 2 ball which didnt help

Ken Castle2015-10-30
Arrived late, but was still hurried onto the course and played a v pleasant round as a single. Tight fairways on the back nine; Two or three v strong holes, close to but not quite in the same league as the Royal.

Alan Scotter2015-10-28
Could not complete round due to heavy rain but staff at reception were friendly and sympathetic. Provided rain check for us to play again next year. Could not have asked for better treatment

ruby Langhart2015-10-26
Totally overrun with golfers

Stephanie Brown2015-10-23
Great course in great condition

Frank Becker2015-10-23
Everything ok but the rental price for a trolley is too expensive (9 € per round)

Andrew Robinson2015-10-22
good as always

Derek Thomas2015-10-19
Very good

Ron McLachlan2014-02-17
This week by Carlos’ skillful attention to the weather forecast we exchanged a potentially cold and wet Saturday for a delightfully sunny day on Sunday to play the Vale do Lobo Ocean golf course. This is a par 73 and presents itself with some of the most spectacular views on any golf course in Algarve. It features undulating fairways which run alongside a 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 fabulous 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. This is a golf course well worth playing at any time of the year. A field of 18 made for a good competitive day. Nearest the pin at the testing 7th hole was Tracey McCall – yes the same Tracey McCall who was nearest the pin a couple of weeks ago! At the shorter 17th David Exley pipped Steve Jinks by a matter of inches. With 4 ladies in the party, their prize was won by Helena Burke off 20 handicap with 28 points. Helena’s card featured several spectacular holes mixed with a number of “blobs”! In the men’s competition, Tracey also finished in 3rd place. Playing off 9, he scored 34 points. New member Alastair Smith scored a creditable 36 points off 15 handicap, but was pushed into 2nd place by Ron McLachlan – yes me – who shot 37 points for the first time since 2008! Handicap 13 next week! Socially, we returned to Parky’s where conversation went on well into the evening. Carlos reminded everyone that we have a Special day this Wednesday when we go to Salgados for some early morning golf followed by a meal at Chez Carlos Restaurante of traditional Feijuado (with Caipirinha and wine) prepared by Rosangela to her family recipe all for a price of 40€ for members or 50€ for non-members. Anyone wanting to join us for the meal only will be charged just 15€. Next Saturday it’s Pinhal! See you then. Ron McLachlan 17th February 2014

Chez Carlos Golf Society2012-04-05
Play Vale Do Lobo Ocean and you will rarely have a special view ahead of you; it is probably more spectacular than its sister course The Royal. Essentially the front nine is new Ocean and the back part the old layout. Either way you play it is a treat. Rain had finally arrived in the Algarve this week much to the delight of the golf courses who have experienced a very dry winter todate. The greens whilst adundant with grass were slow and uneven - not usually a Vale Do Lobo trait. The morning rain subsided to leave us playing once again under blue skies and sunshine.

Chez Carlos Golf Society2012-01-20
As we all know the English like to talk about the weather but it is justified to mention to mention it here. December had simply been fabulous with dry sunny conditions throughout whilst January has continued a similiar theme. Consequently many courses are now having to irrigate at a time normally when the sprinkler systems are run at a mininum and as they depend on mother nature to do the rest. The course was in fine condition and presented a tough challenge and this was reflected in the overall scores many of which were sub 25pts. The winner came in with 36pts. A couple of the members were seen talking to golf architect Rocky Roquemore in the VDL clubhouse that morning. Famed for many a masterpiece that incudes San Lorenzo, Quinta Da Ria, Quinta Da Cima and Golden Eagle and Belas in just Portugal alone. He was responsible for the remodelling of the Ocean course after the original blueprint laid down by Sir Henry Cotton.
