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 recognise 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.
A very good course ideal for any handicap golfer
A lovely day with beautiful weather and great fun back in Chez Carlos Restraurant afterwards, always a very friendly day, thank you so much, Heather
Had a wonderful day. Reception staff very helpful as well as the staff in charge of the buggies.All staff welcoming and pleasant.
Course in good condition, very quiet, staff very pleasant. Would play it again
Course is in very good condition. Each hole is a challange on its own. Combination of water, trees and open fareways is good.
Maybe as it was very windy took a little off the enjoyment but still @ very good course for us. Some challenging holes, greens in good condition, would play again. Good value when compared with others.
Laguna was for a change relatively quiet so we had a very satisfactory round of golf with no hold up at all. The course was in its usual good condition for the amount of golf it caters for. The clubhouse was as usual very welcoming.
Yes I enjoy laguna had a very good day on sat it is in the best condition I have seen Frank Grehan
Golf course was in fantastic condition and great test for all level of golfers. Club house food was okay but used to be high quality so a little improvement needed. Wouldn't think twice about returning though.
Course in great condition, a little wet in places due to overnight watering. Greens were quick but very receptive and very smooth. Staff were friendly and cheerful and overall a great day.
Excellent condition, good pace of play, all enjoyed the day
Everything to do with the booking went according to plan. The only issue was that they operated a 'crossover' system that meant we had to wait on the 10th tee for over 20 minutes. Course was in good condition.
Laguna has the unwarranted reputation of being the poor relation of the Vilamoura courses. In my opinion, this is totally unfounded. Laguna is always in first class condition, particularly the greens. There is a variety of holes that makes the course both interesting and challenging, and when there is a light breeze blowing it is a really tough course. Friedly staff and a good pace of play on the day we played ----- 4 hours for a fourball !

Very good condition and good value it as some great holes
very good condition of the place. friendly staff. Water and bunkers dominate the course.
Great day, the course was in excellent condion. Lunch at the clubhouse did not disappoint. Well done Dom Pedro.
Hi I was very impressed and when an emergency arose and we could not play Marissa was in touch to re arrange. Very easy to deal with and so polite Regards Seamus
Felt very rushed. Awful experience
Hi Telma we are having a wonderful time everything has flowed smoothly since arrival and all services are excellent
Great course, great people, great weather, all went smooth with Voucher
Last minute decision to play before flight home. Stunning course with plenty of challenging holes
Service great and course was good
Course was really great condition. It was nice to play so good greens. We really loved.
Un tres joli parcours .l entretien est parfait .
Course in good condition
Very good and challenging course good condition beware the water hazards plot your way around buggies very expensive 45 euro Brian
Very helpful and pleasant staff.
Lagna was in excellent shape. I think it has improved since Dom Pedro took over the maintenance. I teed off at 1.10pm ( a few minutes late). It was pretty well dark by the time we reached the 18th, but that is the risk you take with 'twilight'. Still an enjoyable outing.

Excellent service once again from Carlos and his team
Very nice course, the grass was sometimes very short.
Excellent course which has matured over the years
james richard lillitou2018-10-24
Great service but course condition and speed of play were a real issue.
D E Gibbons2018-10-23
Great service no problems with booking
Great golf course
Kevin Maguire 2018-10-19
Lagune was in very good condition
Laguna was in very good condition and has some excellent holes some which was very tough into the wind notably stroke index 1 a par 4 which must have been playing around 480 with the wind clubhouse and staff couldn’t be better
In excellent condition, good challenge
The course was extremely busy and the play slow. It took us over 5 hours to complete or round.
The overall management of our day at Laguna was very well managed and we finished our round of golf in about 3.5 hours. If I was to give a negative comment it would be that the course needs to get more investment to justify the green fee of €95 plus €40 for a buggy.
Nicely laid out course with some really interesting holes that made you think. Just a shame there isn’t a halfway house, it’s so busy and that players are not looking after the course.
A little bit hard because the water ;) some problems around shuttles ... we were 24 and need 3/4 shuttle and they did not come at the same time. Difficult ...
Great day had by all
Everything worked out with the reserved tee time. Nice course. Lovely location
Everything worked out very well
Nice course, very challenging also very busy, took 5 hours which is too long.
Lovely golf course .
Good course, well maintained.
good course some great holes
Enjoyed the round which brought back memories from playing the course in previous years. Overall we thought the course was showing signs of deterioration from how we remember it but overall enjoyed the round.
HR M.G. Van ECK2018-09-05
IT was a pleasure to play golf here
Lovely course, well kept, a few difficult holes but fun all the way around
Very good course, friendly staff
Laguna was a lovely course with plenty of water adding to the challenge. However, it was not overly difficult and was a great course for mid handicap players. I would thoroughly recommend the course. We played early, just after 8 am and pace of play was excellent - finished comfortably in 3 and a half hours for a 3 ball.
Michael Long 2018-07-18
Greens were good.....still a bit expensive overall but good day out
I thought the distance markers were not totally accurate.
Service was brilliant. Managed to get me to play on my own and first out the clubhouse as requested, when I only booked the day before. Will come back again and again. Thank you
Very pleasant reception from all staff and a good course enjoyed by the group. Thanks
Great course and very enjoyable
Staff great, course good, although the 4 holes over the road (look new) are the weakest on the course, would not be my choice to play again.
course was in possibly the best condition i have seen it in - well done to the green staff
Andrew Winterburn 2018-05-22
Lovely course with a lots of water, great course to kick off our golfing trip, staff very friendly.
very challenging - but enjoyable
Kevin Maguire 2018-05-04
Yes we enjoyed our days golf at Laguna
Mr William Ryan2018-05-03
great greens and overall very user friendly as it caters for all handicaps.
excellent value although staff a wee bit grumpy in the shop
Excellent experience from pro shop to starter
The course was not in great condition and the greens were poor. It was our least favourite course this year.
Friendly Ranger, nice course, but fairways often dry. Better conditions than in Millenium Course.
Very interesting golf course with a lot of bunkers. Water is a challenge too. Fairways are not in best shape. Greens are good
Really good staff and coarse was perfect but had to star at tee 10 which slowed us down so was really dissapionted. I would of liked to be notified about that before hand from you or Laguna.
Most enjoyable round of golf but a bit slow in places. Last played 10 years ago and this is now a much improved ourse.
Manfred Sandmann 2018-03-29
Easy Booking from Home, no Problems, a lovely golfcourse Thanks
The golf course, which is managed very much in business, is located on the edge of Vilamoura just above the sea level. Nevertheless, water is more likely to come into play on bad weather. The few water hazards are relatively easy to play.
einfach, breite Fairways einige mehrere Bäume, flach. Fairways und Grüns noch nicht optimal.
Not in as good a condition as normal
Ok, customer service good, course in great condition but pace of play very slow. 4hrs 55mins for 18 holes (2 ball) in mid February, and no buggy bar service until late in the round.
Gorgeous staff, very helpfully ! Very politely starters. Very nice facilities, very good golf design and I would notice Especially every Board with hole design, despite last year, in January. Very well fairways maintained, very tricky and challenging greens. Good Food in restaurant, fair prices, very good PRO SHOP. Overall, I would become a Member in this club !!! Yes, this buggy cart for refreshments worths the money !
A wonderful tricky Course
Course was in great condition. It was nice to play it.
Good but not great. Condition ok
Ausgezeichnete Grüns, schnell und spurtreu Die Abschläge sind zu uneben.
Was a Nice course, good greens
Excellent. Starter let us go out early as they were not busy.
laguna was good and having the tunnel to hide from the rain and for the buggy bar to be there was excellent
The course was in excellent condition on both occasions we played it in the last 2 weeks. The club house staff and the facilities are right up there with the best I've played
Enjoyed..all good...well looked after
Great coarse Pleasant staff Nice food
Enjoyed and lunch was excellent
Very hard course. Challenging on most holes. Plenty of water to manage. Enjoyed the day
Very enjoyable golfing experience .course very challenging .
Excellent course and service
Lovely course. We have played it a few times and happy to go back. It was in very good condition.
Had a great game at Laguna, lovely course, will play again next year.
As always in very good condition and a pleasure to play. Again the course was very busy and just got our buggies right before our tee time. Pace of play was good. Food in the bar as good as always. Staff all very friendly and helpful.
Anthony David Mitchell2017-10-17
Excellent service by Telma Santos, who rearranged the teetimes without any bother
Disappointed to pay full price for green fee and to take over 5 hours to play could not see to finish round.to many people on course and Marshall don't seem to do anything about slow play.was more interested in us carrying an extra half set of clubs on the buggy that was put there because one of are group injured her shoulder.not the best experience ,over priced for what it is and what you get, should not full paying green fees off after 2.0 pm. Regards Brian Gale
Play was slow, however, not something that could be avoided. Course was nice but our least favourite.
It was perfect at all the aspects, unless a little bit too crowds. But a funny day
Course in excellent condition and provided a good challenge.
Very tired course, in need of a little bit of tlc.
The courses were too crowded and overbooked to be enjoyable.
Erwin van der Stap2017-08-23
Nice course, very friendly staff, particularly at the restaurant (shared with Millennium Course).
We have not played it for a coup[le of years due to it being closed for maintenance. The course was excellent and some of us forgot how tough it was.
Enjoyed my round here, course looked and played much better than my previous experience here. Bit too much water for my liking but a nice course.
This was my least favourite of the three courses, it wasnt in as good condition as the other two. Still a fantastic golf course though and i thoroughly enjoyed my round. The only bad point is we were stuck behind 4 4balls who were very slow and learly didnt play golf very often, but i was quite happy taking in the scenery and getting a tan!!
John Munn and Hugh Hegan2017-06-04
The guys liked this course the best.
A tricky course.
One of my pet courses on the Oceanica scene. Always worth a visit.
Very well prepared course excellent greens
Improve well maintanance
Excellent course, great value, always enjoy it
Great condition, extremely helpful.
Excellent course - struggled with water though lol
Ok - overpriced services
Course OK Staff and facilities very good
Our tee time was moved to an earlier slot because the course staff had paired us up with a group of 9 who were understandably unhappy at being asked to split up. This allowed no time for the much needed time on the driving range and our performance and enjoyment of the course was reduced slightly. This appears to be a common occurrence on these courses which are arguably overbooked, affecting pace of play
We have played Laguna many times and the condition of the course and the service we get from there is good and consistent for a resort type course.
Mr Peter Draycott2017-05-02
Great course and service
Mr Peter Draycott2017-05-02
Great course and service
I had originally booked for 2 golfers at Laguna. I added 2 more at a later date. When we arrived at Laguna reception, they informed me that instead of being booked as a fourball, we had been booked as 2 2balls - 2 teeing off at the first and 2 at the 9th (both at the same time). Luckily, because we had arrived at reception early, the staff kindly moved the bookings so we could play as a four. I'm not sure how this came about (I'm not blaming anyone) , but I though I'd just pass that information back to you, as it's worth double-checking things like that. It would have been very disappointing if we'd have had to play as 2 2-balls. Everything else was great though - very friendly reception and really helpful.
Excellent from proshop to 18th green
This course was in very good condition the day we played it. The fairway where good and the greens fast. overall I would give it a 8/10
Staff at the course were very welcoming and the course itself was in good condition. The facilities at the clubhouse were great
Laguna golf course was a great course to play and the weather was super warm as well the clubhouse served wonderful meals and lovely cold drinks but please include buggies with the green fee to avoid slow play
better than the millennium...fairway so so 5.5 out of 10
Nice course but very busy. Flights with 4 persons. Long waiting for par 3 holes. Beautifull greens.
Very satisfied with this course, I found it quite difficult and lost many balls, someday I hope to play again and do a lot better.
Lovely course, a real challenge. Buggies too expensive and we had to start from the 10th hole . This is not generally a problem but the cross-over times were based on players using buggies which seemed a bit unfair as we prefer walking, unless there are long walks between tee
all courses met our expectations
Probably the weakest course of the Oceanic courses - back nine definitely better than front nine.. Quality of fairways was medium but greens were okay.
Very good course in goodcondition
The course was in great condition the greens were fast and hard to read. Golf balls don't float. Catered well for people that are Gluten intolerant
Course in poor condition tee box's and some areas around greens. Nice staff
Howard L Verrill2017-02-15
I had a wonderful time with Alistair, Andy and Andres. I like the course a lot. Good challenge and very fair. No Mickey Mouse stuff. Greens were really good. I wish I had more time to play with the group and this course again. Thank you very much, Howie Verrill
It was Ok overall, I would say I liked the practice' facilities more than at Pinhal, but the restaurant has lower quality. I appreciated equipment boxes : I wish to know about them BEFORE THE ROUND. I was dissapointed by missing the hole's picture at teeing ground. Especially for hole 15, I guess ( long par 5 ).
I thought the course and practice facilities were excellent. The greens were very receptive and the putting surface fast. Some testing holes. Overall a very enjoyable experience.
A good golfing experience from the minute you walk in the door you are well looked after.
Many water hazards are to ensure. I like this course.But the tee-offs are bad, because they are uneven.
Best of the 3 golf courses. Love the water hazards
Enjoyed most of it - can be slow
course condition ''ok''
Good course, and enjoyed the round
good course and in good shape ! Lot´s of character. I liked the water....
Played Laguna last year and it was in pretty poor condition. Glad to say the improvement is immense and it was really good when I played last week. Will certainly play again in February 2017
Laguna course looking very tired. Needs a lot of attention if we're to play there again.
Laguna was as always very busy but despite this was I good playing condition. Never easy but enjoyed this year by our group
Dale Stowell 2016-10-24
Very busy but could have been better organised
Course was very busy and bit wet due to the rain. Organisation as always excellent with tee times
The staff at both Laguna an Pinhal were friendly and helpful at all times. We all had a memorable golfing holiday.
Great course and facilities
Tees and greens in average condition. For the cost I would expect better. Enjoyable to play.
Disappointing as the greens were in poor condition. Will not be re-visiting this course.
Course was in great condition, maybe just better deals on buggies
Good course fairways a liitle worn and in need of water. Greens OK but not the best.
People were great and very helpful. Fairways were not as good as all of the other courses we played.
Very nice. Course was lovely and staff very helpful and nice
Greens poor and patchy when compared with other courses we played.
Very slow play
Had a rather windy day but course was fair to good, I was expecting more, not a patch on Pinhal or the front 9 of Millenium
Steve Brunton 2016-09-22
Was OK, but in need of a little TLC. Greens were not up to their usual standard.
Kevin Miller 2016-09-20
course was in poor condition
Good course, greens were on the slow side
Very good -
Best condition of course we have experienced for years
very much below the standard of the other courses in terms of general maintenance and upkeep.
Excellent day and great course in fantastic condition. Always enjoy playing Laguna.
We thoroughly enjoyed as there was no one in front or behind us on the Tees. The food in the clubhouse after was plentiful.
Laguna was in good shape and very enjoyable. Staff and environs excellent. couldn't do enough for us.
We found the course in excellent condition and although most of us found it difficult on the last day nevertheless we enjoyed it and would return to play it again.
If you like playing with water and sand, this is the course! Bring lots of balls!
Kristiane Peuten 2016-06-19
no further comment - everything was ok.
Accueil du golf chaleureux, parcours agréable relativement plats mais avec pas mal de plans d'eau. Qualité des fairways et greens au top.
Steve White 2016-06-07
Getting a little worn!
Excellent condition, a great day
Good course enjoyed
Balz Riesterer 2016-05-24
Ok nothing special to comment.
Fantastic course well maintained greens best I have played.
Very poor. 2 hours, 50 minutes for our first nine holes is not good. We complained to a marshall who's only suggestion was go back and play holes 1 to 9 again, as there was no one on that 9.
Great and beautiful place to play. I recommend this Golf.
A fair amount of water but not too much to make it impossible. Course was in very good condition and an enjoyable round. The photo on the first tee was a nice touch.
A course often underated but in great condition in particular the greens.
We did not reserve accomodation or rent a car through Tee Times, so therefor I did not rate them.
Good, helpful advice and assistance from Daniela
Good value for money and fun to play
Play-and forget, 'nothing special' type of the course. No interest to return
Laguna was a superb course, great clubhouse. Great end to our break.
John Walsh 2016-03-21
Very good service, quick, reliable and efficient.
Testing course with lots of water very nice though
Friendly professional care
Colin Smith 2016-03-04
Course was in excellent condition. No complaints at all.
The course was good greens were sanded but thats to be expected in preperation for the season aheadwould play it again
Empfang und Starter sehr freundlich. Golfplatz in sehr gutem Zustand.
Nice warm up course but not the best
Good course but they were having the outside repaved and therefore no outside seating area , could have made alternative arrangements or i could have been informed prior to booking that course as it is all about the overall experience
Excellent - even on the day it rained very badly we were offered a free round as weather was so bad. Fortunately we came back later in the day and were able to play that day. Staff were very helpful.
Dominik L. Zuhorn 2016-01-11
nicht besonders schön,
The least interesting course of oceanico, but still fine.
Golf course and service all very good
Excellent staff and course. Would like to have coffee dock/bar at terrace area.
Good condition and pace of play was good throughout the round
Excellent course and organisation.
was following close behind group in front another group tee-ed off at 10th tee just as we were finishing on 9th - very frustrating ruined an enjoyable days golf
Mrs. Mary Stephanie Liddell2015-11-03
Our best day weather wise so made golf more enjoyable. Staff etc. all very friendly. Didn't realise we were in a 4 Ball until just before our tee off time but played with father and son who were very friendly. Starter didn't have any free pencils to give us!!!! Considering the rain that there had been course in reasonable condition albeit slow greens.
Nice course. Not that long from the red boxes. But tricky. Friendly staff.
Great experience, friendly, helpful, efficient - thank you
Adrian Fraser Jones2015-10-26
Sehr voll, späte Startzeit um 15.37 Uhr ermöglichte kein zu Ende spielen der Runde. Ab Bahn 16 war es dunkel!
Charles Randall 2015-10-22
Course was looking a little tired and very busy. We only just completed the round due to the number of players in front and the speed of some of the 4 balls in front.
Course in good shape and as usual found it enjoyable.
Chez Carlos Golf Society2012-07-21
Chez Carlos Golf Society played Oceanico Laguna on this wonderful Saturday afternoon. The weather, although sunny and warm, was bearable, which made the atmosphere even more enjoyable for the 15 golfers. The course was in great condition and very challenging as always. This is a pretty open course with many lakes, (the name “Laguna” is no coincidence) and with a total of 79 bunkers, which combined with the frequent wind turn this into anything but a walk in the park. Nevertheless, everyone was in good spirits, which no doubt contributed to the good scores: Joe Fraser, playing off 8 hcp – 39 Chris Milford, playing off 12.6 hcp – 34 Alan Toole, playing off 18 hcp – 34 There was no nearest-to-the-pin as everyone missed. All the par-5 holes are high in strokes, which proves to be a challenge to the average golfer. On the other hand, the par-3 are low in strokes, which are all things to be taken into consideration when playing a stableford, since the slightest distraction can result in a disapointing score. On this particular day the bunkers were quite hard, in fact almost solid, which didn't help matters. Overall, the back nine, with an extra 200 metres, is much more challenging than the front nine. Check out Laguna's scorecard and the pro tips. After this exciting game we went back to Parkys where, as always, we were welcomed by Del and had a well-deserved drink with complimentary nibbles whilst watching the good players on the TV screen.

Oceanico Laguna is a par 72 course located on the coast, within the popular Vilamoura Holiday Resort. Dating back to 1990, it was designed by North American architect Joseph Lee and has been object of a few improvements throughout the years. This 6121 m course features very few trees and numerous lakes, which also serve as the perfect habitat for many different birds and amphibians like otters and terrapins. In fact, close by, taking advantage from its proximity with the ocean, developers have created an environmental nature park that welcomes many different, resident and migratory, aquatic birds. Although built in quite open terrain, it has an impressive total of 79 bunkers, which combined with the usual strong winds and the aforementioned water hazards, set the perfect conditions for quite the interesting round of golf. Laguna shares its clubhouse with the neighbouring Oceanico Millennium course and is only a couple of minutes away from Vilamoura center, which, being the sought-after holiday resort that it is, provides the ideal setting for the relaxing moments of your golfing holiday. After all, we are talking about the largest tourist luxury complex in the whole of Europe.
