Vila Sol Golf Course - latest comments and reviews

Pål Christiansen 2023-11-02
Disappionting condition, not kept up as well as earlier years. Not good value for the momey. Tee boxes in particular were bad.

Lauermann Andreas 2023-10-21
Good course in good condition. But overbooking leads to long waiting times

Vincent Van Diest 2023-10-13
Front 9 not top Back 9 Okker

Paul Weller 2023-10-08
Pro shop staff were very efficient and helpful and so were the drinks staff and buggy masters. However, cramming over 700 golfers on a course meant a round that took over 5 hours and a 13.48 tee time putting out in the dark on the 18th. Greens were terrible and slow and looked like they hadn’t been cut that day. Bunkers had hardly any sand in. Not what I remembered from Vila Sol 15 years ago. I think I need to avoid this time of year if I come back as the staff were excellent and I can’t fault them, but the overall value is not reflective of the prices charged. Groups behind us wouldn’t have even got to finish the round so we were lucky in that respect.

Craig Ireland 2023-10-07
Good course, good condition on the greens and fairways. Can be pretty slow, expect well over 4 hours a round.

Gerry McKenna 2023-10-02
Round of golf to slow , to many people out on course

Ian Godfrey 2023-09-28
I always enjoy Vila Sol being local and very challenging course. Plus really good value. Just a shame the tee time was so late.

Ben ainsworth 2023-09-25
lovely course .. good challenge .. just let down by no booking of buggy .. quite a hilly course to walk

Vincent O Hara 2023-09-21
Great course. More maintenance required.

Jon Burrows 2023-08-29
Course was in excellent condition. Pro shop assistance wasn't great. No starter so people just teeing off randomly and despite being told there was a half way house to get refreshments in, it was closed when we got there which wasn't ideal in the heat

Andrew Young 2023-07-30
Course was nice, pro shop welcome was ok. However they did split us up across 2 diff times even although I had booked all 3 at same time. The Marshall did solve by sending us off on the back nine but it was a tad annoying.

Tony Gill 2023-07-05
Challenging course to play, tight and tree lined with various other hazards as well. Course in good order with sand in bunkers. Some picturesque holes to bring a smile to your face. Food afterwards was nice but not the beer, everyone was sending it back.

Michael Bradwell 2023-07-02
Nice course to start our holiday, although Tee box signs were worn and need repainting/replacing. That made you feel course not maintained as well as it could be.

Pat Wallace 2023-06-26
Far too hot but you can’t control that unfortunately. However the golf should flow easily but this won’t happen when you are following a 5/6 ball which was holding the whole field up. This spoilt the experience ruined our game having to wait to take every shot - not nice in this heat.

Declan Quinn 2023-06-12
Good course only problem was the push trolleys were ten euro and mine broke after 2 holes no one would come out with a replacement

Elizabeth Pelham 2023-05-16
The course was lovely however we played at twilight and there weren't any marshalls which resulted in slow play behind a couple of slow groups. Also buggies needed to be returned by 7 which meant we had to use a trolley.

Cliff Morgan 2023-05-04
The course was in better condition than when we played last time about 5 years ago. Buggies were a a bit expensive and could do with the bar staying open until 21.00, whihc was when outr pick up arrived. Otherwise a great experience.

Mark Dancox 2023-04-26
Slow play

Laurent Dubois 2023-04-21
Quality of the course versus greenfee paid quite low. Very crowded and slow play (despite was a Friday and eveeyone with buggy) 5 hours… boring course and noisy, close road with high traffic We will not come back.

Mihir 2023-03-26
I played from hole 19 to 27 These holes are not so good compared to 1-9. I was a little disappointed I did not get to play 10-18

Graham Paver 2023-03-25
Not keen on villa sol especially 19-27.

David Schofield 2023-03-05
A nice morning out, greens were good and the course was very enjoyable

Hendrik Westland 2023-02-13

neil martin 2023-01-29
Very slow play today, almost 3 hours for 9 holes due to three groups playing extra slow. We walked off after 9, at that rate it would have been dark before 18.

Ian Humphries 2022-11-27
very high buggy price at €55

Pasi Stenberg 2022-11-06
Layout was nice, course condition was good, pace of play was grazy slow and we had problems with our buggies… another stopped in the course (battery out) and another almost… we had to push them climbing the ”hill”.

Per Lauritsen 2022-10-26
Ok golf course and ok service!

Kjell Baudin 2022-10-23
We played today sunday 23/10 on Challenge and Prestige, hole10-27. As always nice to play at Vila Sol courses but today it was uncut greens wich was unusual to us. Very slow greens. And they have to do something about the the ''roads''. It is for sure a bumpy ride if/when you are driving buggies.

Kjell Baudin 2022-10-20
Because of the rain we were only able to play 10 holes, then we were soaking wet and had to break the round. But the course was as always in good condition.

Kevin Moloney 2022-10-20
Need more buggies

Peter Schuch 2022-10-18
very nice court

Philip Lander 2022-10-17
Wonderful golf course everyone was curtious well organised

Maurice Lynch 2022-10-13
Not good , overcharged on buggy, no brakes, no sat nav, no water and we were charged €55 per buggy

Scott Couper 2022-10-09
Too busy and slow play, no rangers or food and beer buggy. Greens and tees bad condition.

Sigge Linden 2022-10-09
Nice course

Darren Gatward 2022-10-03

Bob Guard 2022-09-28
A great course - happy to return at any time. Shame about my own golf!!!

Paul Griffin 2022-09-26
Bit of a tough course in windy conditions Tee boxes in poor condition Club house really nice and welcoming

Michael Cunningham 2022-09-22

Joe Egan 2022-09-09
Vila Sol in good condition considering the drought, greens pretty slow though.

Mundell 2022-09-06
Vila Sol fairways are showing effects of lack of rainfall and greens were very slow. Convenient for where we were staying. O'Connor course was in better condition with speedy greens

Niall Walshy 2022-09-01
Very average golf course. Poorly maintained. long grass not strimmed, bunkers have grass growing in them.

Justin Bonner 2022-08-30
A very enjoyable course.

Kieran Roche 2022-07-25
The course was generally good, and it was not too busy, so we were able to tee off a little earlier than anticipated which was good. However, the bunkers were not in great condition as they had not been raked and didnt have much sand in them, so they were very firm. The greens had also recently been cored and sanded so they were slow. We had only booked to play 9 holes but they club stated it was 18 so I am not sure where this error arose and if we over paid. Having said the above, I would return.

Adrian 2022-07-18
Tough course in very good condition

Steve Roadway 2022-07-05
extremely good

Rob Evans 2022-07-05

Eric Deprey 2022-06-26
nice course and friendly service

Phil haskell 2022-06-21
Courses in good condition and pro shop staff very helpful when we needed another tee. Twilight rates were good value for money.

Les Docherty 2022-06-13
Great Golf course. Greens in excellent condition. Only negative comment some areas of the course requiring attention, Tees and hole markers require updating and some bins not emptied.

Joe Egan 2022-06-13
An excellent day at Vila Sol,beautiful weather and as always the course is a great challenge.

Michael Shane 2022-06-05
We didn’t like it at all. We felt it was untidy and of a poor standard. Having played the Ocean Course Vila Sol was not at all good. Would not even think of playing there again.

Jon Jacob 2022-05-23
Absolutely lovely course very tight in areas but a nice test of your golf had to place it around and the greens were top notch

JOHN MCDONAGH 2022-05-23
Excellent course and a good challenge for all levels

Adrian Fraser Jones 2022-05-19
Course and greens in great condition

Adrian Fraser Jones 2022-05-19

Raymond Moore 2022-05-16
A strong & tough course, especially holes one to eighteen which was the course we played.

Luke A Tennant 2022-05-15
Absolutely wonderful customer service, by Had multiple amendments required to various bookings

Ita Marron 2022-05-10
Lovely really enjoyed the games played twice in last week

Neil martin 2022-05-05
Lovely course, a little slow play but still very enjoyable

Paul Fernandez 2022-05-03
Course fairways and greens could do with some improvement. However, staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, and the green fees were very competitive with other local courses

Colin 2022-05-02
Perfect evening. Course quiet and playing well. Greens were great. Recommend.

Ronan Doyle 2022-05-02
Nice course. Not being able to pre book buggies was a big disappointment though

Kjell Baudin 2022-04-24
Always nice at Vila Sol

Mike 2022-04-14
Easy check in and got away a little early. Course was in pretty good condition Greens were good and fast A bit scruffy around the cart paths ect but excellent value for money on the twilight deal.

David Wells 2022-04-09
Slower greens and pricey…$55 e for buggy…ridiculous

Eamonn Ryan 2022-03-24
Course was waterlogged throughout and it is doubtful that it should have been open for play. I appreciate that the area experienced very heavy rain in recent days and more is expected however, a responsible view would have closed the course.

Pascal Plichta 2021-12-17
Beau parcours

Mark Schmitz 2021-11-12
very nice

Ronald Lee 2021-11-04
no starter, not in good condition

Anne Nikolaisen 2021-10-31
It’s ok???? not my favorite, but in ok condition.

Tony Suwalski 2021-10-10
Very slow but course in good condition

Kjell Baudin 2021-09-13
Very good

Kjell Baudin 2021-09-13

Dr. Klaus Mittelbach 2021-09-11
Course in a satisfying shape, relatively less sand in the bunkers. There are flights with more than 4 players, as a consequence slow speed.

Adriaan Erkelens 2021-07-09

michel cristea 2021-05-19
4ime fois que je joue ici.tout est parfait

cristea 2021-05-10

Carlos Ferreira 2021-04-21
Golf course in good condition and greens with good roll and very true.

Marcos lourenço 2021-04-08
Everything was fine ????

Gordon Fleming 2020-10-29
A good but hard testing course, played 1 to 18 which in my opinion bid the best combination

Neil Macklin 2020-09-23
This was my first time playing this course ..quite challenging but good ..although I felt the course needs a bit of TLC ...

Tony Williams 2020-02-28
A very enjoyable round. First time played the Course. Interesting holes, fairways could have been in better order on holes 10-18

Jackie Robinson 2020-02-21
Enjoyable but all played badly! Crowded to begin with

Mr D Askew 2020-02-17
Great layout 19 to 27 improved massively .greens very good . Fairways on first 9 need a load of maintenance

Kjell Baudin 2020-02-16
Very good service both in shop/reception/restaurant and on course! We feel at home. The course was in whinterly shape. But ok.

Steve Henderson 2020-02-12
Great course, plenty of water hazards, greens in great condition

Andy Robinson 2019-12-12
We played the original 18 holes,which is a terrific layout.. The holes are demanding and you need to put the ball in the right place to score well. The greens were true and relatively quick probably running at about 11 on the Stimp However the course is in particularly poor condition.There are parts of the fairways that are completely devoid of grass and winter rules are definitely needed. It will e some weeks before the course has recovered.

Marie Stradling 2019-12-11
I played holes 1 to 18 at Vila Sol about 2 weeks ago and thought the front 9 holes were in bad condition. The fairways were bare and the greens were not good. After some rain in the last 2 weeks, I thought the course would be improved. I was wrong. Although we had preferred lies, there were many times when there was not any grass to move the ball to. The greens were better. Many tee boxes didn’t have a level area. I would not choose to return to Vila Sol unless the course was greatly improved.

Andreja Rostohar Bergant 2019-12-03
Igrisce je korektno, osebje zelo prijazno. Greeni na vseh luknjah vrhunski, le ferway na luknjah od 1-9 je ze zelo zdelam. Spliosen vtis pozitiven. Andreja SLO

Smits 2019-11-24
Very poor fairways

Mike Suter 2019-11-23
not in a good condition, tee boxes disgusting for an high priced course

Out of the Pestana courses we played we thought this was in the poorest condition possibly due to high use. It was extremely busy and is made up of three 9 hole courses which overlap, although there are some nice holes to play the volume of people playing at the same time,with wandering players from adjacent fairways this led to a slow round of golf and a lot of waiting.

Hans Blaauw 2019-11-07
Nice course but fool booked even as a early starter. We got two people from France in oiur flight that didnot want to speak English (or could not) : :(.

Lee Doyle 2019-10-19
Too busy but course was really nice

TERRY DIXON 2019-10-18
We always love playing there.

John Beckett 2019-10-15
Greens a little slow compared to other courses in the area, but overall the course is in good condition.

Dianne Tomlin 2019-10-11
Lovely golf course and club house but far too busy. Have played this course before but never seen it so chaotic. Had to keep going into pro shop to ask if we could get a buggy and only got one 8 minutes before tee time after talking to a very helpful lad at buggy post.

Vincent 2019-10-05
Nice, narrow, lanes. Very enjoyable.

Martin Oldroyd 2019-09-19
We enjoyed the course - very playable with some interesting holes but the general level of service was poor at Vila Sol which was a shame.

Gillian Goodman 2019-09-16
Loved the course, glad the buggy came with the round of golf, but bar drinks very dear

Irene Lee Donohoe 2019-09-12
A bit too difficult - very tight and unforgiving umbrella pine trees. Course in good condition.

Stuart Gray 2019-09-10
Very good but greens a little on the slow side.

Simon Brice 2019-08-21
Lovely course

Carl Hegarty 2019-08-17
Course was in good condition and the summer special two-ball & buggy reflects good value for money compared to other courses

Didier Becholey 2019-07-31
Tres bien service et accueil parfait

Ian Hartis 2019-07-28

A Erkelens 2019-07-24
Excellent Course, Reception superb

Kerp 2019-07-11
Too much construction work!

Mr Greally 2019-07-03
Lovely Course - definitely go again

Ronald Pharoah 2019-06-27
The course is taken care of fairly well. Fairway divots require attention. Greens were excellent. I would go back again.

Roddy Grant 2019-06-09
Course looked a bit untidy in places, the tees were well worn but fairways & greens were good. The staff were okay but I didn't get the reception I would have expected. This was my first time playing at Villa Sol so I was a little disappointed.

John Williams 2019-06-06
Very good layout in excellent condition. Greens however were a little bumpy.

Tempesta Daniele 2019-05-30
The course, especially the first 9, is not in perfect condition but we enjoied in any case.

Mary Bradshaw 2019-05-28
Hi, The only negative comment I have is the lack of refreshment cart on the course. We failed to notice the pit-stop at the 1st, 10th etc.

Paul Reynolds 2019-05-20
They had shut the front nine for maintenance which was very disappointing as that nine makes the the 18 so much better . Very busy and slow . food and service very good

Cathy Proto 2019-05-09
Excellent. There seems to have been a lot of work done at Vila Sol recently and was looking great and in very good condition.

Timo Lehto 2019-05-08
This was Compared to Old course the service was not so friendly.

Kjell Baudin 2019-05-03
Not as good condition and service as the Dom Pedro courses we have played this week.

Robert Addison 2019-04-27
Prompt responses to enquiries but given the wrong tee time.

Lucas heumen 2019-04-08
Beatiful course, wide and challenging

Richard Oakley 2019-04-05
Thought electric trolleys too expensive.

David Barry 2019-03-11
Very good experience.

Colin Papworth 2019-01-27
Great course, greens in excellent condition, a real good test.

Simon D Turner 2019-01-17
Course needs investment and looked overplayed. Shame as the layout is wonderful.

Cheng Li Seng 2019-01-07
Average golf course. Nothing fancy or can remember about. The Dom Pedro courses are a lot better than this.

Carolyn Wright 2018-12-19
Check in went smoothly. Lovely course. Reason I am not giving it a 10 is because it was quite slow as many people playing in front.

Keith Hall 2018-12-11
Excellent greens in great condition

Mr Kenneth Barnes 2018-10-28
Enjoyed the course and the company. Good course with demanding holes. Staff friendly and helpful. Did not like practice facilities which had little grass and golf buckets unavailable. Other than that enjoyed the course.

Bosse Sundberg 2018-10-27
Very welcome feeling arriving in the group. Easy going but still competition.

Kevin Maguire 2018-10-20
The course was ok

Roderik 2018-10-15
Very nice and easy course

John Lloyd 2018-10-14
Villa Sol was a nice course. It was busy for 3 holes then all of a sudden everyone spread out and it was millionaires Golf! Staff were all pleasant and greens were in great nick.

martin flynn 2018-10-08
lovely course some holes challenging some picturesque other quite easy. on the day we played it was very quiet. so no hold ups; club house is great staff in the pro shop superb, friendly and helpful

Mr Bristow 2018-10-06
I thought this was well overpriced compared to Victoria and millennium..

Bill Leach 2018-10-03
Having played Vale de Lobo for 2 days, Vila Sol looks very tired and unloved in comparison. It was very busy and they didn't have enough buggies for us. With the amount of people they have using the course they really have no excuse not to tidy it up a bit.

Neil Edwards 2018-10-01
The tee boxes and areas around the green were of a poor standard. The vlubhouse and dtsaa were excellent and very helpful.

Ian Molyneux 2018-09-30
Course looking a little scruffy today.

George Duthie 2018-09-25
Had a great day well organised and course in good condition.

Cheryl Myles 2018-09-22
The course was very busy today, but of course it was the weekend and many members were playing. In saying that the first nine was quick, but because there are 3 loops of nine holes the second nine was slow. Fairways and greens were in good order. The greens very quick once they dried out in the morning sun. Enjoyable round.

Kevin Steele 2018-09-21
Always enjoy Vila sol

Jeanette Gribben 2018-09-18
Good course but we found it hard to play. Overhanging trees

Sean O’Riordan 2018-09-10
Course was excellent but shortage of buggies took from the experience

julie cobley 2018-08-16
Excellent yet again

Marion Andrews 2018-08-15
Golf course not in the best condition and pricey - cost of buggy if not with a package is overpriced at 45 euros. They need to look at this price compares to other in the area.

David Farrier 2018-08-04
Really good quality of greens on holes o. 10-18 but holes not as good on 19-27.

Hoang Hang 2018-08-02
Nice place interesting golf course

Mr IAN Hartis 2018-07-22
Excellent course in very good codition

Mark Robison 2018-07-10
Deal was excellent Course was in really good condition. Not great but they were completing a lot of maintenance. Clubhouse good and it was fairly quiet which suited us.

mark robins 2018-06-30
Great booking. Rubbish golf - but that was our fault

Deprey Eric 2018-06-24
We did play a heavy game but at the end it was all square????????

Ollie whyte 2018-06-21
1st class golf course. In excellent condition. Greens nice speed and easy to read. Pace of play a little slow but not disastrous so. Very enjoy.

derrick 2018-06-15
Good course value for money

Cyril Kelly 2018-06-14
People lovely and helpful but course looked a little “tired” compared to last time.

Michael Tait 2018-06-07
A wonderful golf course in very good condition, lush fairways and true fast greens but to score well you need to avoid the trees. Will definitely play the course again.

Ian Price 2018-06-02
Great courses and customer service. Very prompt pick up and drop off.

Jean-Guy Hottiaux 2018-06-01
Nice course well maintained with some challenging holes. Holes 10 and 18 were closed for maintenance but we enjoyed playing on 19-27 course.

Paul Reynolds 2018-05-24
Top layout and the course was in lovely condition . Need your A game around there especially if the wind blows

Great couse , bit busy 5 hour round

Burns 2018-05-17
Really enjoyed the course and not too busy!!’

Peter Heinecke 2018-05-08
Vila Sol is always a wonderful experience

Gilles Blier 2018-05-01
First nine is great. Second nine is not so good.

Jim Liddy 2018-04-30
The first time in several years that I have played Vila Sol and it was in good order although probably not as good as the Dom Pedro courses I played in October 2017

Fran Mackey 2018-04-25
Nice course in good condition. We played 19 to 27 for the first time and refer to play 1 to 18.

Eoghan 2018-04-18
Great course

Mick Long 2018-04-15
Excellent course in very good condition. Perhaps more suited to lower handicap golfers because of tight fairways and long par threes

Katharina Cugliari 2018-03-31
Very nice course and good pace of play. Very long from ladies tees. Easily walked without too much elevation change.

Hamish Philp 2018-03-27
Staff very friendly, course in good condition, need to be accurate from the tee!

Serge Schefer 2018-03-16
Terrain très sec !

Trevor Ward 2018-02-24
We were very disappointed with the speed of play and condition of the course although we still had lovely company with friends but very poor value for money, thank you

Val Smith 2018-02-03
Great setting but was really disappointed by the condition of the course. Parched fairways, pitted greens and rough tee boxes. This was previously a super course in top condition. was the worst course we played all week. Not worth the money we payed. Would play other courses, not this one again.

Axel Heuser 2018-01-19
Schmale Fairways, beidseitig von Pinien umsäumt, und strategisch angelegte Wasserhindernisse fordern die Spieler aller Spielstarken heraus. Die Grüns auf den Löchern 19-27 sind gewellt und ziemlich schnell. Erwischt man eine falsche Stelle, läuft der Ball leicht übers Grün hinaus. Da ist Stress vorprogrammiert. Die Grüns auf den Löchern 1-9 sind nicht so herausfordernd. Bei einem hohen Anspiel bleiben die Bälle liegen. Die Fairways leiden offensichtlich unter Wasserknappheit, wie kahle Stellen bezeugen. Fazit: Der Golfcourse ist mit seinen 27 Löchern offenbar gut frequentiert. Die Greenfeepreise sind im Vergleich zum Gesamteindruck des Platzes etwas zu hoch angesiedelt.

Liz Scully 2018-01-07
Excellent course but play was extremely slow. Group was very friendly. Enjoyed the day

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2018-01-04
Ein sehr schöner Platz in einem guten Pflegezustand, Rate: 7

Jan Sklepek 2018-01-01
Der Golfplatz war im top Zustand, leider am 1. Januar beim herrlichen Wetter sehr voll und entsprechend langsames Spiel

Marion Brosens 2017-12-30
Always great to play Vila Sol. Please check your tee time before arrival as they will book you on a later time if members want to play at your original tee time. Restaurant staff could be better and the club house and changing rooms are freezing cold.

William Forrest 2017-12-19
Very good course with excellent variety of holes

Ian Penfold 2017-12-12
This course is excellent quality and a true challenge, because of this however it took us 2hrs50mins to play 9 holes. As we had a flight to catch and knew we would not finish the round, we chose to stop after 9 holes to relax and have something to eat. This was very disappointing. Feel that the speed of play in front was not managed and the handicaps of the players should be limited.

Charles Lawson 2017-11-09
Arrived in ample time and starter allowed us out early before another group reached the nineteenth. Accurate tee shots required on some narrow fairways.

Doug Smith 2017-10-28
Not the easiest course. Tight tree lined fairways and surprisingly slow greens. But a nice venue and the greens run true. If you score well here you have played well.

John Ferguson 2017-10-28
Course is overplayed and tired

Kevin Maguire 2017-10-25
Buggies are to dear at 45 euros ..some of the holes the quality of the grass was poor particularly close to the greens, again as with the other course the buggy paths were very poor. ..The greens themselves were probably the best of the five courses we played .

Westley Macey 2017-10-19
Enjoyable course but a little to busy starting and on the turn due to the 3 loops of 9 which caused a delay and quite a slow round

Bernard McDonnell 2017-10-16
Probably the poorest of the 4 Would have preferred the original 18 Quite slow to play

Eoin Hanrahan 2017-10-14
The course was in very good condition. Play moved well in line with guideline time of 4h30. The service was excellent.

Adrian Pitt 2017-10-08
Nice course for a good price

Graham Johnson 2017-10-02
Friendly welcome. Played the ''other 9 holes'' 19 to 27 for the first time and was really impressed. Really enjoyed my time playing there.

Mark Vaughan 2017-09-18
This course looks a bit tired compared to others in the area in the same price bracket (Laguna, Millennium)

Fraser Low 2017-09-17
Looking tired. Course needing money spent on it to stay in touch with the competition. Shame as it's a great layout

Liz Scully 2017-09-02
Good course. Very challenging with a lot of trees. Greens were a little disappointing as they were very slow. But overall I enjoyed playing it very much.

Ian Smith 2017-08-19
Nice course.

Holes 1-9 are lovely, very much like Vilamoura Old, 19-27 not the same standard and felt cramped

Chris Knowles 2017-07-24
We thought the course was pretty poor this year compared to the last few years. they were doing maintenance to the greens.

Graham Ashley 2017-06-21
Great course would recommend it to anyone.

Greg Hall 2017-06-15
Excellent, course not in the best condition I've played before and seems less well maintained now.

David Connolly 2017-06-13
Very helpful friendly staff, with good amenities. The course layout is a bit strange and for the less energetic or for those not used to golfing in hot weather I would recommend hiring a buggy.

Duncan Walker 2017-06-09
Excellent holiday golf course. Just as good as we remembered it. Very friendly staff.

Stewart wyatt 2017-05-31
Lovely course layout but fairways not the best

John Wheatley 2017-05-29
OK course but gave the impression of over use. But only when compared with some other Algarve courses!

Dave Thompson 2017-05-27
Played in Sept last and enjoyed it so we had to return. Fairways were not as good as September which was a shame as it distracted from the rest of the course.

Frank Corten 2017-05-25
Very good test of your golf but the course and pathways need more maintenance.

Mattias Kindberg 2017-05-24
Took to long, we had to get off after 4.45 h at hole 15 to get to the light.

Thomas Roberts 2017-05-21
Great Course loved the greens!

Neil Suffolk 2017-05-09
Vila Sol holes 1-9 are brutal, you are either carrying water to the greens or you are hitting down a narrow fairway, once on the putting greens they all slope back to water (if its a water hole).... but still looking forward to having another go !

Very busy on all 27 holes, but they got us off the tee on time & course was in good condition. Played twilight & buggy hired. Only informed when on the tee that the buggy needed to be back by 7.45pm & bar closed at 8pm. Fastest back 9 I've played for a while & scorecard reflected it.. Waiter was hovering over us to finish our drinks & kick us out?

Katharina Cugliari 2017-04-19
Our least favourite course. When we arrived we asked for push carts and were told there was only one. My husband decided to carry. By the time we left the pro-shop, there were no push carts. I am not able to carry and we had to rent a buggy although I would much rather walk. We felt that the proshop could have given us a reduced price for the buggy but we were still asked to pay 45 Euros. The course was narrow to play and in our opinion not nearly as nice as the other four. We asked to change our second tee-time at Via Sol to another course and I appreciate your help in doing so. The drive from the Atlantico took 75 minutes due to construction, another reason we did not like this course as much.

Eoghan Lenihan 2017-04-19
Our first time here - loved it , will certainly return

Britta Ries 2017-04-06
A lot of pines. Old and ingrown holes. Gated community houses all around, Remembers a bit on an American style. Nice club house with nice terrasse.

Fran Mackey 2017-03-10
Great golf course, fairways were not in great condition

George Rutherford 2017-02-17
First time we have played the course.Not a course forhigh handicapers.You have to position your shots at most holes.Will definately play the courses again. The club is a bit greedy with the cost of there buggies at 45euros,especially at this time of the year.

Chris Gregory 2017-01-31
Not in as good a condition as previously

Sabine Obermayr 2017-01-21
Welcome and Service at the reception very friendly. Unfortunately the Course was in a not good condition. Trolleys old and shabby. No starter or buggy with drinks/snacks at the course. Compared to the other courses we played that week, Vila Sol came off a bit badly.

Pat Horkan 2017-01-17
this is a fine golf course looking tired. however it is encouraging to see the ground staff working hard at repairing it pat horkan

Susan Crawford 2016-11-13
This course is being improved monthly by Pestana. The removal of some trees that have become too big and are ruining the surface of the fairways with their shallow roots has improved the 19 - 27 holes. This removal may also address the negative comments made by players about the state of the paths etc. The roots have damaged the paths too. A great course, getting back to its former glory.

Doug Smith 2016-11-09
Today we played 10 - 18 and 19 - 27 (not everybody's favorite). However I thought the course was ok. The greens were fairly fast to start with but got slower as it got cooler. All in all a pretty fair day out.

Liam Kearney 2016-10-25
Vila Sol was still a good course but this year it's condition was 'a bit used and tired'. Hopefully in future it will rise again.

Adrian Fraser Jones 2016-10-24
In excellent condition

Dale Stowell 2016-10-24
Excellent course and facilities Service was very good

Gary Wills 2016-10-24
Still a great golf course (1-18) that's what we asked for and that's what we got.

Dave Thompson 2016-10-06
Loverly course with tree lined fairways. Good greens and fairways. Staff very helpful. Will return next year.

Mark jones 2016-09-26
Great picturesque course with top clubhouse and veranda for an after round beer. Greens were a little rough and ready but not too bad to detract from the round. Would play again.

Steve Brunton 2016-09-22
OK, but frustrating not to have played 10-18 again.

Cheryl Myles 2016-09-17
Really enjoyed our game here. Like the features around the course and a challenge of your skills too.

Phil Bailey 2016-09-15
cool boxes on buggies would be good, we

Tom Keenan 2016-09-13
Really enjoyed Vila Sol with its three separate nines and would definitely play there again.

Paul Oates 2016-09-09
Good course and facilities.

James Sweeney 2016-09-04
An excellent course

James Sweeney 2016-09-04
An excellent course

Keith Hall 2016-08-27
great condition some great holes to test the golfer, my favourite course

Chris Knowles 2016-07-20
Excellent course in every aspect. Staff brilliant. Played here for the last ten years and it never disappoints.

michael richards 2016-07-06
There was too many waiting on the first tee. We were paired with a father and son who were very pleasant. They did not like the course and neither did we. The paths riding in the buggy were far too bumpy as tree roots were risen through them. The clubhouse was good and food nice.

David Parker 2016-06-26
Beautiful landscaping and varied holes, some with water, makes it challenging in places. A selection from 3, 9 hole courses makes it varied.

Brian Rutherford 2016-06-23
A very nice course, thoroughly enjoyed the golf - buggy was very welcome on this course.

Philip Buck 2016-06-22

William Holmes 2016-06-15
Tough course. Spoilt a bit by the state of the greens on the front 9

Trevor Swift 2016-06-04
Good course but not up to same standards as other courses this year

Mark Grant 2016-05-23
No food available on course the afternoon we played and course condition not as good as previous years

Kevin Steele 2016-05-22
A number of years since I played here and the standard of the tees and fairways were poor; such a great layout warrants some money spending to justify the green fee.

Sam Fisher 2016-05-16
Not as good as the above but very enjoyable

Bill Robertson 2016-04-17

Peter Grant 2016-04-16
Vila Sol was a bit disappointing this year with poorly manicured tee boxes

Jackie Robinson 2016-03-01
Challenging as ever but a little surprised at the number of players

Lee Carter 2016-02-10
Lovely golf course, good condition, good facilities

Glyn Kneebone 2016-02-05

everything ok, bad tee boxes

Vila Sol Members Open Day 17/09/11 2011-09-20
On occasions the Society will support an external event. Saturday’s Vila Sol Open Day was one such occasion where invited guests had the opportunity to play alongside members on the Championship course (Prestige & Challenge) followed by lunch. New owners Pestana are making gradual improvements to reinstating it back to its former status as one of the finest courses in the Algarve - its layout is simply one of the finest and most challenging. It is 20 years old this year and found fame at an early age when it hosted the Portuguese Open two successive years in 1992 & 1993. Numerous tournaments followed including the famous Johnny Walker Classic, its home for five years and the continuing Bobby Robson Classic. Architect Donald Steel built a masterpiece demanding positional play at its very finest. The first four holes have a reputation as being one of the hardest starts in Portugal and deservedly so! Neither nine is any easier according to its members. As with any great course the closing holes are strong from the sloping and narrowing 17th to the 18th for a finish right outside the clubhouse terrace.
