Dom Pedro Laguna Golf Course in Vilamoura - Algarve, laid out over low-lying coastal terrain, this course, with its many water hazards and few trees, is considerably different from the other ones at the resort and many of its holes convey a links atmosphere. Many previous visitors will recognize it as part of the former 27-hole Vilamoura III course.|It includes several lakes which influence play on a total of 11 holes. In addition to acting as hazards and emergency water reservoirs, these lakes serve a useful purpose in attracting a variety of aquatic birds, both resident and migratory, as well as amphibians, otters, terrapins, etc.| Vilamoura's master developers, Lusotur, have also established an environmental nature park not far from the course. Apart from the lakes and an impressive total of 79 bunkers, another hazard is the wind that frequently blows over this somewhat exposed location.
It was underwhelming, service was pretty poor, course was average, I expected better and it was missing out on all the little touches that make it great
Welcome was good, was able to tee off early as the course was quiet in the afternoon. Staff all very friendly and helpful. The course overall was in good conditions, tee boxes, fairways etc but the greens were not great. Looks like they had either suffered very badly over the winter or had been prepared in some way to regenerate growth for the new season. They were flat, a bit bobbly, but very little grass on them and not giving you a positive impression at all. When I played in November they were in good condition.
The greens needed a lot of attention. Disappointed after being closed for a while. Although they looked awful there was nothing wrong with putting on them . Chipping and approach shots where a different matter . Spoilt it as a venue
The greens were not ok. Looked ''dead''. And the renovation/rebuilding of the course, were was that? We didn't see it. But a nice place to be as always.
Another Dom Pedro Golf Course. High Greenfee, low maintenance. Course overall in bad condition, greens dead.
The greens were under all criticism and that no warning is given including a reduced green fee is really bad. We who live in Vilamoura must be ashamed when we have guests with us, which now affected us.
I have marked low mainly due to the condition of the greens. It is a long time since I have played on greens so bad. The marshalling was non existent and the game was very slow, it took 5 hours to play the round, We were waiting on every shot.
In comparison with other courses, which we played that week, this one was in worst condition (mainly greens)
Fairways ok but greens not good
no buggies available, we only played 9 holes. staff were friendly but restricted by management rules as to what they could do for us. we will not be returning to this course, also the greens were sub standard, they appeared to have a hard crust on top
Spent a lot of money on the relaying of the course. It is now worst than it was before. The greens are horrendous
Played Laguna on the 20th of Feb. This golf course should not have been open to the public..the state of the greens were byond bad ...not a green blade of grass to be seen anywhere on the greens. The fairways and tees were just slightly better.
Tee Times reply: Dear Mr Maguire, Thank you for your comments.
The Laguna golf course has Bermuda grass greens, which need less water to keep. However, it hibernates during the winter and changes from green to brown during this time until temperatures start to rise again to average 18-19º and it enters its active state. Kind regards, Tee Times Golf Agency
