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.

Beautiful course, but a bit noisy with all the construction work and the greenkeepers carts.

News - Golf in Portugal - Vale do lobo Ocean course 2021-07-15
We played yesterday at Vale do Lobo Ocean course on a hot day, but a sea breeze made it very pleasant.
  We were 18 players of various nationalities, Portuguese, English, French, Swedish, Scottish and Irish, it is worth mentioning these last two nationalities.
  The golf course was in perfect condition, with some greens that were fast and smooth but soft at the reception of the ball, a pleasure to play.
  The course is long and has miscellaneous holes, the front nine being played in the north and west part of the resort and the back nine next to the Atlantic, which provides breath taking views and allows for some shots with the murmur of the sea in your ear. It is worth paying attention to the spectacular views on holes 11, 14 and 15. Very good.
  The winner this day was Ian Godfrey with 38 points, followed by Fraser Graham with 33pt, and in 3rd 2 players with 30pt Jim Gillis and Peter Collins. Nearest the pin, on 13th, a narrow green well protected by deep bunkers was won by David Ziai, who placed the ball 3 meters from the flag.
  We all return to our usual Restaurant in Vilamoura for some drinks and our free nibbles generously offered by João Filipe. Another day well spent.

Greens had been hollo tined and sanded but other than that a good experience. Green fees and biggies too expensive

The shuttle 40 minutes delayed

We played the Ocean course the day after its sister course The Royal and the comparison could not be more different. Some of the fairways were patchy and the tee boxes were not in the best condition. Also all of the greens were spiked which meant even though they were very fast they were not totally true. This was the 4 th time I had played this course and this was the poorest condition that I have seen it in.

the courses are spectacular, but the food in the Spikes restaurant was disappointing. Had to return 2 rib eyes as they were almost totally fat and gristle.

Simon Potts 2024-04-23
A bit disappointing having played Royal earlier in the week. I found Royal much more interesting and better looked after

Andrew Godfrey 2024-04-22
Reception staff not at all friendly, other staff much better, course in good condition but congested so many delays, trolleys expensive.

Stephen Maggs 2024-04-05
Too busy and time between tee times is too short at 8 mins, no marshall to speed up very slow play so impacts the experience for a great golf course.

Ellenor Dunbar 2024-03-27
The course was in good condition and its location is fabulous. I was disappointed in one of the buggies as the edge of the seat was badly ripped . As we paid Euro 55, I expected better. Apparently they are going to change all buggies however, in the meantime, they should reduce the price.

Winfried Arens 2024-03-23
The driving range is a joke. Limited space and only up to iron 9 allowed. Never come back again. The course is ok.

Kenneth C McDonald 2024-03-22
Buggy’s weren’t ready. Had to wait on buggy’s coming off the course and the one they gave us ran out of charge by the 4th hole

Horst Hubig 2024-03-13
