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.

Vale do Lobo Ocean - latest comments and reviews

Greens were pretty soft but ran well and a reasonable speed. Course is in ok condition and would be better if people repaired pitch marks and replaced divots. Pace of play a bit slow.

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.

I like the course and staff were lovely and helpful however the pace was too slow, not the problem of people in front of us but the ones ahead of them and they did not care, we did not finish last 3 holes so we’re disappointed

nice golf course but the greens were verified and not good to play

Alexander Male Phillips 2023-11-28
Some tee boxes in poor condition. Current work to 10th tee was not advertised in advance. Overall though was very enjoyable.

Mark Hughes 2023-11-14
My personal favourite of the two courses on this complex. Interesting holes which take in views of the ocean in places. There was some drainage work being undertaken on one of the holes, it would have been nice to have been advised of this by the starter prior to teeing off. Round times are long and there was no marshal.The practice facilities are limited in comparison to other courses. Clubhouse is shared with the Royal course but copes adequately with the volume of players.

Kevin Maguire 2023-11-13
Everyone to a man were very dissapointed with the state of the course from the paths, fairways, bunkers in a bad state and particularly the greens .Plus it took 5 hours to play the 18 holes which is not good when on a buggy. The staff were lovely from the lady at the reception to the starter and the lads looking after the buggies.

1st time at Val Do Lobo, really enjoyed it. The courses & Clubhouse were very busy but the staff coped well.

Great course, it was very busy but expected at that time of year

Anthony Smith 2023-10-13
Challenging course but reasonably well organised even if everything was a bit too pricey.

Mirco Gallana 2023-10-09
We enjoyed our time in Portugal very much. The reservation of the TT worked without any problems and we can highly recommend this service. Only on the also very beautiful Vale do Lobo Ocean course did we not enjoy it. This was because the ranger pushed us to play faster after we had to put up with long waits on the front nine holes. We agree that the flow of the game must be guaranteed. But a ranger should take into account the overall play and not individual flights. The enjoyment of the game and the course was over after that, which was a shame considering the high cost.

Had wait on every hole the course was too busy too many players not enough space between spoiled it for us. We having playing golf there for many years

A little late to start at 2.40pm, just got in before dark, course busy and slow, but the course was in excellent condition.
