Well designed course, each hole quite different, some v tough holes. greens not at their best but still playable.
Course fairways and greens could be better. There were some bald patches on greens.
Course suffering from the high temperatures. Greens in poor condition.
Course was a little disappointing and thought it’s sister course Gramacho was in much better condition and better designed course. The greens were terrible given it had just reopened from maintenance and very bobbly and slow.
2 many doglegs for myself but the course was in excellent condition.
Qualty of course very, but marshalling of slow play non existant. Compacted sand in bunkers not acceptable.
The Greens were not up to their usual standard
Enjoyed the course although the greens were not at their best
First time of playing was tricky with all the dog legs but good fun. Greens were disappointing.

We would have enjoyed our visit more if the course had been more actively stewarded. We could easily have completed 18 holes on a twilight rate but the group we were stuck behind broke many of the basic rules of golf. They parked buggies in silly places that stopped us playing our first shot, we’re obviously not up to playing off the white tees and thus took ages. Losing balls. Etc. the list is endless. We started at 3.25 and it’s was so slow that 2 groups of decent golfers gave up on the 4th they couldn’t bear it. The course is a decent challenge it has some hard holes and another time we would have enjoyed it. we stopped at the 13th especially as it was raining and we had to drive back to Villamoura. We would have to think seriously about playing it again.
Love this course but today there were no buggies available and it is not the easiest course to walk round when you have a heart condition. Also, because of slow play we were only able to complete 15 holes !
