Vilamoura Pinhal

Pinhal Golf Course was the second golf course built in Vilamoura. Several refinements were incorporated over the years. It is typified by rolling parkland terrain covered with numerous umbrella and Atlantic pines that line many of the fairways and a few even stand out on fairways or near greens.|Ponds and a stream come into play on five holes but are not serious threats to above-average golfers. To keep up with modern technical advances in clubs and balls, several holes have recently been lengthened. The clubhouse was completely renovated and modernised at the turn of the millennium and from the large verandah one can enjoy a panoramic view over the excellent driving range and practice facilities.

Great course really enjoyed the challenging layout

Clive Plummer2019-06-25
Had a round with a visitor from Bristol, generally good on the golf side. The course requires a greater degree of accuracy as the tree lined fairways are not very forgiving when you are off line. Our two ball was behind a members 4 ball who clearly are not aware of call through protocol. Ridiculously slow and we could have been and gone in 5 minutes if they want to stay all day out there 4 hours 15 minutes in buggies - come on! (contrast 3hours 20 minutes at the old course just 2 days earlier). One of my favourite courses at Glamour but slow play is only forgivable if you call faster groups through!

Janice McDonald2019-06-17
Course in great condition. Lovely evening

Mr Rafferty2019-06-13
Very good course

James Bowmer2019-04-26
Beautiful course

Timo Salomaa2018-12-31
Great course, beautiful weather, wonderfull villas and nice play company. What a geat time for New Year Eve!!!

Paul Mullen2018-11-30
Very enjoyable day

Cheryl Myles2018-09-20
This is a tough course. Many of the courses here are tree lined, but this one has strategically placed fairway and green based trees which makes you go to the other side, where you find a strategically placed bunker! The fairways were green and well maintained as were the greens. An enjoyable test of golf, particularly if playing from the back tees (which I wasn’t). Value for money too.

Jeanette Gribben2018-09-18
Great course

Ade Fisher2018-08-13
Lovely corse in great condition, would definitely recommend as a 1st course to play when playing in Portugal before the real challenges come!

Mark Rice2018-06-25
Great course although it would be a hard course to play for a high handicapper. A lot of trees overhanging the fairways.

Karl clancy2018-05-16
Golf course 7/10 Difficulty 8/10 (course guide recommended) Service 8/10 Food at clubhouse 6/10

Didier Becholey2018-05-14
Très beau parcours bien entretenu. Le prix est cette fois-ci plus en relation avec une réalité, me semble-t-il

Colin Hammond2018-05-11
The third of our 3 round package. All went well again. The course was in good condition and we played without any major holdup to finish inside 4 hours as a four ball. Thanks to TeeTimes who organised our package. I would definitely use the them again.

Doug Smith2017-07-30
Pinhal golf course. Is in excellent condition. Yesterday the greens were fantastic. Soft enough to take a good shot in and leave a generous pitch mark. But smooth and accurate for good putting. The fairways were in good shape too. This is a very tight course with tree lined fairways so good accurate driving is the order of the day. One to play.

Graham Wilkinson 2019-07-15
Staff good and friendly, food good but pricey, course is good and has improved greatly over the years

James Love2019-07-11
Not as busy as other courses so we were able to play at our own pace.

Christine McGregor2019-07-08
nice clubhouse, a short tight course with slower greens

Christopher Drew2019-07-01
Absolutely fine, thanks

John Holt2019-06-22
As with Millennium over priced for what it is!

Trym Anderson2019-06-19
This is a good course !

Pascal Wegman2019-06-17
Could only drink one round after the course... which we experienced not friendly. Flight itself was Nice! Almost 18 holes played.

Breuer2019-06-11
Very friendly and relaxed staff; infrstructure (lokker room, showers) need some upgrade; golf course not too demanding and nicely maintained. Recommendeable place.

Gordon W Reich2019-06-05
Very friendly staff. Pinhal has a good course layout w/ generous fairways, strategically placed bunkers, smaller greens that are in very good shape (around a 10 stimp) & water on most par 3's. However the course is starting to look tired as the wooden landscape ties along the cart paths / tee boxes are starting to rot and show their age. Some of the green fee money must be put back into maintenance. Green fee price is high for the total package the course presents.

Barry Keane2019-06-01
Organisation was spot on. Course was in good condition. It would be good to have an option to prebook buggies at a discounted rate for all courses.

Fallow2019-05-29
Very happy with the service we received when booking golf

Adrien Vancostenoble2019-05-29
very good

Maurice Rogers2019-05-23
The course was in good condition but the pace of play was slow.

Judith Tolcher2019-05-19
A lovely round of golf this morning.

Christopher Priest2019-05-17
Fantastic course, pleasant staff. Great service using the shuttle service

Tony Coombs2019-05-16
As I have come to expect the general condition of the course was very good except for the bunkers. I liked the pond improvements and the path around the 8th tee. There was a delay to our start and our pre booked time had been changed without prior notification. The pace of play was ok at 4:35, considering the number of players out the overall strength of the wind. Some of the cart path could do with an upgrade in particular between the 12th to 13th.

Nigel Pomphrey2019-05-15
On time and coarse in very good condition really enjoyable

David Eirian Lewis2019-05-14
Great course and facilites

Timo Lehto2019-05-08
We liked most this course. The undulating fairways framed by pines made us feel like home

Gary Wakeham2019-05-07
Perfect beautiful course very friendly service

Kjell Baudin2019-05-02
Excellent service at Pinhal!

Andrew Toner2019-05-02
heaven, in my element,

Michael O'Neill 2019-04-29
Course in great condition and buggies reasonably priced at 25 euro. Definitely be back.

Steve Saxelby 2019-04-28
Very good facilities and the course was good to play .glad we hired buggies as it was a bit of a distance between green and next tee on certain holes

Yrjo Wichmann2019-04-28
The course was great, but the pace of play was extremely slow. The round lasted well above five hours. This was due to some fleets playing very slowly. I understand that many of the players were elderly players, but still the pace could have been kept faster. The marshalls for example allowed extended searching times well exceeding the present rules. On a full day like yesterday, the starters could kindly remind all the players about the importance of keeping the pace.

John Coates2019-04-24
Pinhal is an excellent course and a real challenge. The course was in great condition throughout and the buggies were only 25 euros (instead of 40 euros) after mid-day.

Darryl Williamson2019-04-24
Another good course

Mark Schmitz2019-04-23
everything fine

Vermeire Patrick2019-04-21
Nice to play back on this course but very crowdy...

Robert Lundberg2019-04-21
The greens little too slow

Janice Mcdonald2019-04-17
Very enjoyable day with very friendly people, Would like to have has some other lady golfers.

David Lilley2019-04-16
excellent course, facilities and staff.

Hervé Van Overtvelt2019-04-16
Beautiful golfcourse. With a lot of typical trees. Buggy was not driving well so after 9 holes we had to change it.

Anne Seabrook2019-04-12
Paired with a pleasant Swedish couple, but a 5 hour round due to very slow people in some games ahead, could do with course marshals to hurry slow matches along.

Martin Punch2019-04-11
Course in good condition. Enjoyable to Play. Beware of ball staying up in trees. Reception & Course staff very pleasant and helpful.

Will Evenden2019-04-10
Fantastic!

Owen O'Sullivan 2019-04-08

Enjoyable day on a nice course, not to hard, and a fairly easy walk

Kevin Slee2019-03-12
Great course, helpful staff, third course we played and most people’s favourite, only downside was paying €5 for 10 French Fries in a tin container after our round stopped us staying longer shame but everything else was superb

David Barry2019-03-08
Superb

Barbara Beer2019-03-06
Pinhal although not my favourite course is well worth a visit .. Enjoyed the course and clubhouse.

Hochfilzer Helmut2019-03-01
Place in good condition. Staff friendly. ???????????? Unfortunately, some golfers on the course are by no means playing HCP 28/35 and thus slowing down the round ??????

Eleanor Tweedie2019-02-28
All the staff were very helpful and always greeted us with a smile.

Graham Ellerton2019-02-17
Excellent as always.

Peter Jeffery2019-02-17
Brilliant as always, easy to book, all transfers were on time, golf courses in great condition, staying at don Pedro was really good a close to all the bars & restaurants, will definitely book for next year

Ian Walton2019-02-16
Played to rounds at Pinhal both days very windy. Good test of golf and thoroughly enjoyed the experience Found Jorge at tee times very helpful and he ensured we had a good Trip Ian Walton

Craig Russell2019-02-10
Very enjoyable. No complaints.

Tony Williams2019-02-08
Good course, friendly staff. Pretty quiet

Janie Jenkins2019-02-03
Course is in great condition. Very much enjoyed our round today

DAVID CHAPMAN2019-01-30
course great to play

Nick Swinhoe2019-01-16
a reasonable course and value for money at the cost but not up to the quality of other courses in the area.

Marcella Tuttle2019-01-08
Course was in lovely condition and the breakfast was great. Great value.

Timo Salomaa2019-01-07
Great course in good condition

Cheng Li Seng2019-01-07
Nothing lesser than Old Course. Well-designed course with great greens. Similiar design concept like Old course with treeline along the fairways. The course was beyond my expectation and definitely worth a try.

REGIS DELAHAYE2018-12-27
Hello when we arrived with our voucher The Pinhal didn’t Have our booking from Teetimes....we waited for a moment before to be sure to play . We hope you made the necessary for our following booking. Regards Régis Delahaye

David Levitus2018-12-24
Lovely course, good condition

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2018-12-23
Pinhal ist ein schöner Platz. Leiter wurden die Grüns aerifiziert, so dass die Puts nicht gelingen können.

Gerry O Connor2018-12-10
No fault with the Course but it was not kind to me the day I played it.

Paul Fell2018-11-30
Greens poor

Hans Ulrich Erne2018-11-20
Pinhal is in good condition. Better than the Years before. Fun to play there.

John Deveney2018-11-15
Course well presented, staff pleasant and courteous.

Some slowi play leading to hold ups. Course good.

NEIL DUGGAN2018-10-20
Good condition friendly staff enjoyed the round there , greens putted nicely overall condition of this course very good .

Rebecca Draper2018-10-18
Course lovely, but overcrowded. Waited to play every shot on every hole. Over 5 hours for a round. There did not seem to be marshals speeding up players ahead.

Paul Micks2018-10-16
Golf course & driving range was excellent. Staff on first tee & pro shop were very pleasant. No electric trolleys were available to rent.

Didier Becholey2018-10-14
Très beau parcours mais toujours les mêmes remarques. Entretiens des greens pas à la hauteur du prix à payer, pas assez de marshal pour contrôler le parcours et éviter de jouer en plus 5 heures J’ai ke sentiment que la société Don Pedro ne pensexqu’à faire de l’argent sans s’occuper des client Comme la plupart des clients viennent avec des packages, ils ne voient rien, et ne disent rien...

Jeff Anderson2018-10-13
Appalling set up at Pinhal. Its a pretty course but very badly overplayed. Every tee time was booked on 8 minute slots, the course was full of groups many of whom could not play but just gradually chopped the course up in front of us. We were paired with two complete beginners and struggled to play in just over 5 hours. Like alot of the Vilamoura courses they are more associated with stag parties and groups of non golfers than anyone wanting a decent game of golf. Greens were running at 8.5 (same as UK courses in about April) , tees badly hacked up, fairways not too bad. Definitely worth avoiding.

Robert Angell2018-10-13
An enjoyable golf course but was very busy, we stated on the first and were first out, when we came round to the 10th we had to wait for 2 groups to go out before we could carry on with the back nine. Courtesy bus from the hotel worked well.

Eddie concannon 2018-10-13
Again another excellent day. Enjoyed Pinhal more than millennium. Definitely coming back to play here again.

Silke Vojel 2018-10-09
Fair golf course, accuracy from the tee is needed. Maintenance is good.

Serge Levitan2018-10-08
Very interesting and pleasant course Always difficulty with shuttle for our group (24)

Didier Becholey2018-10-06
Très bien, parcours très varié, bien entretenu, et très bon accueil au desk. Le restaurant eggkement très bien

CARL HOBBIS2018-10-05
Nice course, no problem with booking, nice staff.

Oliver Gintzel2018-10-01
Little hectic at the first hole. Confirmed tee time was 9.00am. Club booked the tee time 8.42(?) Other than that super nice golf day. Course in good shape.

Derek Hough2018-09-30
Brilliant course staff where brilliant.

Jim McIlwaine2018-09-24
Very enjoyable and what made it more enjoyable was that my Son and I got out earlier than booked and there was no one in front of us or behind us and we were round Pinhal in 3 and 1/2 hours.

Gary Wills2018-09-23
Professionally run.

PJ Courtney2018-09-20
Slow play throughout the round and ended up finishing on the 16th. Too slow and round taking too long. Bunkers not in great condition which maybe from being over played and too many stones in the sand. Overall disappointing

Kevin Bullock2018-09-19
Very nice

David Thomas2018-09-15
Very busy ,to many people playing.

Kieran Roche2018-09-14
The course is in great condition and staff were very friendly. Only criticism is that the holes were quite similar all the way around but overall a great afternoon spent on a super track.

Darren Johnson2018-09-13
Outstanding condition! Fairways, greens, tee boxes where all immaculate, great golf course and great price

Bill holmes2018-09-11
Nice course and reasonable value for money. The front 9 are not dissimilar to the Old Course.

Sean Nolan 2018-09-10
Very enjoyable day.excellent condition of course.

Peter Crockett2018-09-08
Great course, love the clubhouse, buggies prices are extortionate though

Graham Sims2018-08-28
I thought the course was in good condition. The staff were friendly and helpful. My only comment would be regarding the halfway house closing at 12 noon. Though to be fair we were informed it would close at 12 but unfortunately we ran out of water and there is not a buggy bar so no means of getting refreshments after 12.

Hoang Hang2018-08-06
Very good green keepers ! Two much houses surrounding the fairways.....

Joaquin Rodriguez2018-08-03
Magnificent course Very well-maintained golf course We missed being offered club cleaning service

Jason Hoe2018-07-30
Slow play due to players coming late for their tee off, no course Marshall to speed up play and no tee off at the 10th

Alan Long2018-07-29
Good pro shop staff course ok and good price for buggy

Seamus Sands2018-07-24
Course was in good order, needs some TLC, too many doglegs, not an enjoyable course to play, met some lovely people from South Africa, so enjoyed the round.

Tony Coughlan2018-07-16
In great condition but I thought it was playing longer than it should

John Moule2018-07-11
The course was great and the condition very good. The receptionist was not as friendly as the other courses we played. The other staff were fine.

Tom Hobson2018-07-01
Course in great condition pity it was closing the day after we played it .,,,!!, I know maintenance is necessary but I have never played this course in such good condition

Stephen2018-06-19
Great course well maintained Helpful staff. However when I booked on line for twilight golf it allowed me to book from 14:30 onwards but the golf course states that twilight starts from 16:21

stephen chapman2018-06-19
Very good

Bob Brown2018-06-01
course was in very good condition - greens superb - as with the Old Course, price for food and drink let it down

Dax Byrne2018-05-28
Very good

Andrew Winterburn 2018-05-22
Lovely course with some challenging holes especially the dog leg ones... staff very friendly and responsive

paul woolford2018-05-20
Sadly we are low handicap players and we were paired up with a 28 hcap man and his 48 hcap wife, was a disaster

David Adams2018-05-19
loved the course - but starter had me playing on my own following a 4 ball! Also, one of the ground staff picked my ball up and ignored my waving to retrieve my ball. Reported the matter to the club reception - unbelieveable

James bealey2018-05-17
Great facilities and a lovely course. Really enjoyed Pinhal

Alan Seery2018-05-15
Course is very well maintained and greens in particular are good. A bell system should be used on 10, as it is not possible to see if group in front are out of range. Changing rooms need to be updated, surprisingly basic.

Peter Lovenholm2018-05-07
A great course, love it.

Kevin Maguire 2018-05-04
Very playable will include it on our next visit in October.

Mr William Ryan2018-05-03
overall a very good golf course but can be difficult if you do not respect it. nice greens and fairways.

Joe Hennelly2018-04-29
Very enjoyable Friendly staff

bob Pollock2018-04-29
Course was in good condition, staff helpful in pro shop and Carr area. Possibly more expensive for its quality.

John Farragher2018-04-23
It rained very heavily, so had to get a rain voucher

Marc O\'Laoide2018-04-20
Lovely Course and great facilities

Eoghan2018-04-18
Beautiful course

Thomas Karr2018-04-14
The Course of Penihal is in my opion greater than the Old Course. In good shape and a litte bit tricky. The greens were harder to read. A lot of english players. If they are in a group it is not so nice- loud and a bit drunken!

David Evans2018-04-13
Absolutely brilliant time apart from the rain , the club and course in great condition with a great friendly atmosphere

Clive Sims2018-04-11
Course was in good condition. Joined with 2 good players and enjoyed their company.

Jukka Hilli2018-04-11
Everything was perfect

Jan-Erik Andersson2018-04-04
Fast response and everything went smooth. Thank you

Peter Grant2018-03-29
Pinhal is very good value for money and we will play it again. The greens were in great condition.

Jeroen Broek 2018-03-22
lovely course but course too crowded with very high handicap players (36 and more)

Georg Strasser2018-03-22
One of the best in Algarve for me.

Jürgen Blickle2018-03-18
Thos course was in a good condition.

Gregor Langen2018-03-18
A fantastic golf-course. I played it the first time, but we will come back surely.

Karin Schirocki2018-03-16
breite Fairways, viele viele viele Bäume gut zu laufen auch die Wege zwischen den Löchern.

Stephanie Guiard2018-03-15
A very nice golf cours. Perfect conditions..

H. Seifert2018-03-14
The place was for the season in a very good condition, good driving range, friendly and helpful staff, the game on this course gave us a lot of pleasure, we will come back. The terrace of the club restaurant is just the right place to finish a nice round.

LEE SHIMWELL2018-03-13
Great facilities. Interesting course layout and good condition.

Andrew Flynn2018-03-11
Lovely course as ever, good challenge for all grades of golfers

Karen Pearson2018-03-03
Course was in excellent condition when we played in February. Enjoyed playing there

Debbie Wilson2018-03-02
Lovely course, played it many times

Danut Munteanu2018-02-26
I’ve played here last year, as well and I found this was the BEST, then. I have to say everything is mostly in the same situation, just the greenfees paid I felt more expensive, despite were aerated fairways. Overall, a good experience, for a little bit too overrated price.

Kevin Maguire2018-02-26
Course in good condition I love the challenge that Pinhal presents.

Danut Munteanu2018-02-25
As in Laguna, although this GC is a little bit more difficult ( BUT I LIKE IT MORE ! ), I would say : everything was today EXACTLY I have expected. Here everything was good even on Oceanico period, the changes are not so dramatically. Everything is just fine, you CAN COUNT ON THAT ! Golf course design is ROBERT TRENT JONES, No words anymore. The restaurant, although more expensive than last year still have the same quality, the Pro SHOP TEAM and facilities are very Ok. The GC hasn’t buggy bar on Wheels, but has a fix one at hole 14, as far as I remember. Yes, I am sure I will play with the same pleasure tomorrow as well, despite the weather !

Arve Bekkevar2018-02-22
Not so fast greens

Joy Aldous2018-02-16
Really enjoyed the course. Not very difficult with nice wide fairways and not too much water. Carts were 30 euros and were nice but No gps. Snack at/toilet accessible from 3 holes. Ham and cheese sandwich ok at 4.50 E. Only complaint was pace of play. Started at 13:57 and we just made 18 holes before dark (mid Feb)

Georg Fricke2018-02-10
Every Thinge was ok.

R Draper2018-02-07
Good round of golf. Course not busy so got round in 3 and a quarter hours. Course well looked after and fast greens.

Val Smith 2018-01-28
Great course. Tricky greens. Really enjoyed the challenge.

Zeljko Lovkovic2018-01-16
Great golf course in very good condition, lived up completely to my expectations. Not too crowded, very green grass for January, fast greens/nice fairways and nice atmosphere in the clubhouse & at tee off.

Timo Salomaa2018-01-05
Great course. We loved to play it. Only minus is in front nine that toilet is tooo far away.

Axel Heuser2017-12-30
Der Platz macht seinem Namen alle Ehre. Pinien säumen an fast allen Bahnen die Fairways. Akkurates Spiel ist vonnöten, sonst stoppen die dichten Pinien den Ballflug abrupt. Longhitter sind nicht gefragt, um einen guten Score zu spielen. Das präzise Spiel ist gefragt. Die 4 Par-3- Löcher sind gut zu erreichen.

Caroline Appleby2017-12-29
Quick and efficient and easy to book

Clive Sims2017-12-29
Very good. In better condition than the last time we played this course

William Forrest2017-12-19

Rainer Albath2017-11-16
Coursebis nice... the Area of the tees is not in so nice condition. Fairways and Greens are ok. PIN positions were strange Today.

Jan Pedersen2017-11-08
Exellent course, Nice staff.

Derek Hughes2017-11-06
Overall top quality service for all the locations booked through teetimes. Many thanks for your assistance.

Nick Ward2017-11-06
pinhal was as always good

Jim Liddy2017-10-30
In great condition and having played in numerous times its one of my favourites. Narrowish fairways and strategically placed cork trees only add to the enjoyment.

Trevor Simpson2017-10-28
Good as always. Friendly team at the course. Course very good condition considering how much use it gets.

Marc Luthi2017-10-26
Nice course, well maintained, and friendly service. A pleasant experience. best regards, marc

Norman Raine2017-10-25
Golf course was in great shape, very well managed. Enjoyed that we were not rushed.

Peter Riddell2017-10-20
Great game at Pinhal, Filipia at teetimes.pt has been very helpful, booked us another course at very short notice, will deffo use this company again.

Per Lokken 2017-10-20
Ok course

Stephen Fairbrother2017-10-19
Outstanding golf course.

Eoin Hanrahan2017-10-18
Very nice course and clubhouse. The only issue we had was the difference in time taken to complete each 9. The overall time for 18 was ok but the time taken to complete the 2nd 9 was nearly an hr longer than the 1st 9.

Maldwyn Hughes 2017-10-18
Slow 4 ball infront. Course marshalls didnt say anything to them. They lost 3 holes of ones infront

Peter Frampton2017-10-17
Course was busy, but the buggies were available and the buggy master was very helpful. Starter was in fine form and seemed happier than we have ever seen him! Course was in lovely condition and was a pleasure to play. Food in the clubhouse again was very good.

Peter Clement2017-10-14
Average course with again poor tees and fairways not as good as in the past.

James Hallan2017-10-13
Good layout. Great condition. Very enjoyable.

Raymond Gray2017-10-12
Course in good condition and provided a good challenge.

Mick Condren2017-10-09
Again our group enjoyed this course. The beauty of staying in Villamoura is that there are so many golf courses in the vicinity.

John Roche2017-10-08
This course was very busy and took a long time to get around

Sharon Watson2017-10-07
Absolutely loved this course, well maintained, played with a fabulous couple and wanted to go round again we had enjoyed it so much

Gary Wills2017-10-04
Great value

Neil Turner 2017-09-18
Played Pinhal a long time ago and condition wasn't good - but much improved and would play it again.

David Collier2017-08-12
No halfway house or refreshment buggy. Course in good condition.

Elizabeth Halliday2017-08-05
Course much better than expected

James Wood2017-08-04
Apart from the very unwelcoming staff in the shop/check in area this we had a great experience and the course was in super condition, the greens were excellent, quickest of all that we played and probably the fairest in terms of true reads/breaks. We will definitely play Pinhal again but the course doesn't have any real memorable holes and at times feels very very long, and is a bit ''up and down'' in places...we played off the Yellow tees and there were a good number of holes over 450 yds, par 4, which felt even longer with tight fairways!

MARTYN SMITH2017-07-23
Great golf course!

Derek Scott2017-07-16
Very enjoyable , course in good condition- on course staff excellent

Christopher DREW2017-07-16
Usual good condition

Gary Duke2017-07-11
Pinhal is lovely a great test some fantastic holes, well worth the money for a buggy as there are a few hills and you have to leave the course a few times crossing local residential roads, I have walked it in the past but its a bit of a stretch

Daniel Pegram-Mills2017-06-26
One complaint though was Pinhal. The day was extremely hot. At no pint did any drink carts come round, the half way hut was closed before 5pm and when we got to the bar they refused to sell us drinks as it was too late. We were very dehydrated as a result.

Doug Smith2017-06-17
A difficult day for most, with temps in the high 30's. But the course was in very good condition and the greens were in fine form. A true test of golf with tight tree lined fairways and some interesting holes.

Malcolm Ellingham2017-06-17
Like this course, bit of a challenge but good layout and some really testing holes

tom tothill2017-06-16
Again another great course, plenty of trees to make you think about what shot to play rather than just smashing it as hard as you can

Duncan Walker2017-06-09
Our first visit, will definitely play it again and recommend to others

Robert Harris2017-06-06
Tight and tree lined fairways. Better for the lower handicap players

John Munn and Hugh Hegan2017-06-04
Second best rated by our party.

Mary Bradshaw2017-06-03
Excellent

Peter Lamont2017-05-26
Enjoyed the course my least favourite of the four but non the less very enjoyable.

Frank Corten2017-05-25
Love this course, have played it many times and will play it again and again.

John Wolfe2017-05-25
Very nice course excellent greens

Ian Jones2017-05-22
Well laid out and maintained course, very good staff especially Bruno in buggy shed

Anthony Coombs2017-05-21
This course is always a hard challenge even if you are playing well. Driving accuracy is key but also keeping your longer shots straight.

Ray Seager2017-05-20
Great condition, extremely helpful.

Graham Johnson2017-05-17
Excellent condition

Bobinski2017-05-16
OK - overpriced services

Alan Williams2017-05-13
Well presented tight course.

Craig Monks2017-05-10
Pinhal is a beautiful and very challenging golf course. However this is where we were most affected by over booking and pace of play. Having afforded 6 hours to fit golf in before flying home in the afternoon, time shouldn't have been a problem. However after playing only 16 holes in 5 hours and 30 minutes, we had to abandon our round and missed out on 2 holes. Would recommend anybody booking here to get the earliest possible tee time before the course becomes too busy. I believe this would have been our favourite course in the Algarve had it not been for the above problems, which is a shame

Per Lokken2017-05-09
Ok

Per Lokken2017-05-09
Ok

Ian Fisher 2017-05-08
Superb course & facilities!

Calum Macdonald2017-05-05
Excellent

jon chance2017-04-29
Played twilight & managed to get started ahead of the booked tee time, so always worth arriving early & asking if you can play before you're booked time. Course in decent condition, but the bar was shut by the time we arrived back to the clubhouse and they're missing out on business ?!

Robin Seabrook2017-04-23
Course in very good condition, enjoyed the round and company of other Chez Carlos members. Concerned initally that a buggy would not be available, they were waiting for buggies to come in from earlier in the day.

Eoghan Lenihan2017-04-19
As always a magnificent course

Jim Liddy2017-04-11
Probably the easiest of the courses we played and a great choice for my wife's first game of golf in Portugal

Allan2017-04-09
Pinhal again was a lovely course to play we arrived a little earlier than needed but played the driving range to fill in time we started on time and this golf course didn't disappoint great tees and fast greens with wonderful fairways in pristine condition again my pet hate was please include buggies with green fees to avoid slow play

Lenni Vainio2017-04-09
Good course, we played that three times and it was nice

Klaus Abraham2017-04-09
Would not Player again

Micheline Leclerc2017-04-06
a bit expensive for the quality...good acceptable 5.5 out of 10

Alex Mcghee2017-03-27
course great weather rotten

? Tim Amor2017-03-26
We only managed 9 holes because we got rained off. A much better course than I had remembered it to be. Good value.

Christian Gau2017-03-20
Nice course with similar characteristics than the Old Course but less memorable.

Defranoux Daniel2017-03-16
Very good value for money.

Vilma Chapman2017-03-08
Another good course

William Black2017-03-07
Good. Twilight round start at 14.00 hrs just gave us enough light to finish. Course very fair.

Michal Hatle2017-02-27
reasonable quality for money, perhaps somewhat improved compare to earlier years

Damian Howe2017-02-20
Pinhal was the we played on the day that we arrived. The greens were slow and in need of a cut, it was hard to get to pace of them right as they all seemed to be different. There was a lot of work taking place around the course and this will only enhance the experience. Of the 4 courses we played this was the one I would have to consider revisiting it again.

Hamilton Durkan2017-02-19
Fantastic course great condition and nice staff

Ian Fisher 2017-02-07
Very good all round service

Munteanu Danut2017-02-02
This was the most pleasant experience, even they don't have proper pitching/chipping green facilities.

Thomas whiteside2017-01-27
Disappointed here fairways not the best and layout for the first 7holes was like ground hog day. It did get better on the back nine.

Schreyer2017-01-13
Joli parcours

Axel Heuser2017-01-04
The pine trees require acurrate shots.

Janet Carling2016-12-04
Liked the course although it was busy. We liked the clubhouse and the service very much. Practice facilities good.

John Haughey2016-11-30
Excellent

John Convery2016-11-28
Nice course

John Deveney2016-11-18
Good as always. Staff excellent.

Matti Pulli2016-11-14
Although, only some waterhazards in course, Pinhal was interresting with rather narrow fairways ! Also in good condition.

Bill Murphy2016-11-11
Good course, not as challenging as the other Oceanico courses. Should be cheaper to play here.

Paraic Hanley2016-11-07
Lovely condition

Ian Molyneux2016-10-17
My personal favourite as it is quite picturesque and similar to an English golf course. The facilities were again excellent.

James Angwin2016-10-15
Course in better condition than Laguna and Millenium however for me not as interesting. Greens at Pinhal better than all the other courses.

Ken Mitchell2016-10-13
Tee areas a bit rough but otherwise enjoyable

Gerry McDermott2016-10-11
Excellent day on Pinhal once again.

Richard Stephens2016-10-10
Very busy. Too busy. Had 40 delay teeing off. Greens were very average.

charles valade2016-10-05
Loved Pinhal. Course was in great shape and very challening. People very nice.

Simon Clough2016-10-04
Great in expensive course

Kevin Smitten2016-10-04
Nice course greens ran true despite the obvious heavy usage.

Avril Davis2016-10-03
Course not in great condition and staff in restauranct and shop a bit rude.

Steve Brunton 2016-09-22
Good condition and better than when we played it last time, about 4 years ago. The guys want to return.

Peter Crockett2016-09-19
Not played this for a year or two and was great to be back and see the course back in top condition

Mark Illingworth2016-09-15
Nice course with, good layout and test, greens slow

Phil Bailey2016-09-15
we used the clubhouse on a number of occasions for meals as we were staying nearby, the staff were absolutely superb.

Liz osborne2016-09-10
Marshals too attentive always checking up actually felt intimidated.

Adrian Fraser Jones2016-08-28
Good course and in very good condition

Keith Hall2016-08-27
Good condition, enjoyable course

David McCrone2016-08-20
Excellent - exceeded expectations

Chris Knowles2016-07-20
Very Good. Greens were not the best we had played on.

Kevin Walker2016-07-06
A more open course than the old course but works its way through some lovely villa properties adding plenty of out of bounds fences. Was in great condition and even hollow tining on 2 or 3 greens did not spoil the experience. Again not much water but plenty of other hazards to keep it interesting.

James Young2016-06-27
We enjoyed this course very much probably due to the lack of sand traps and would certainly play it again.

David Parker2016-06-26
As the name suggests there are lots of tree-lined fairways some narrow but a lovely course to play.

Brian Rutherford2016-06-23
My favourite course, not the most difficult but a good test of golf for a medium to high handicap.

Mandel2016-06-23
Good condition, no issues

Kristiane Peuten 2016-06-19
the course was well, but the service in the restaurant could be better.

William Holmes2016-06-15
Nice course - good condition and good value

Alain COSTE2016-06-13
Premier parcours effectué, donc, bonne appréciation: qualité fairways et greens comme les autres: excellente.

Steve White 2016-06-07
Acceptable conditions

Mitchell Singh2016-06-04
Jorge was fantastic and very quick to respond.

Karen Shaw2016-06-01
Had not played here before and ended up playing 2 rounds. All very enjoyable

Bill Hunt2016-06-01
Excellent

David Brookes 2016-05-31
Very Good

Maurice Rogers2016-05-31
Condition of the course was ok. The only negative comment I have is about the rudeness of some of the on course staff. My party was ''told off'' by one individual for starting the back 9 too early. There was no good reason for this, we were not playing exceptionally fast and we did not interfere with other players. I would be reluctant to use Pinhal in future.

Stephen Jago2016-05-26
Good course

Balz Riesterer 2016-05-24
Ok, a little bit slow but after 9 holes much better.

Manuel Almeida2016-05-18
I recommend it.

Jason Whalley2016-05-04
Lovely course and a really enjoyable round. Plenty of trees to mean you need to keep it straight off the tee. Fairways and greens in good shape - great time had by all.

ADRIAN FRASER JONES2016-05-03
good service at course

Mark Deverell2016-05-03
Save for the drives between holes and the more built up feel to the course this played as well as as The Old Course.

Barry Walsh2016-04-30
Really interesting front 9 through pleasant refreshing tree lined areas with some amazing villas to pass by, contrasting back 9 good to develop long shots. Laguna/Millennium share a lovely patio area for relaxing over a long drink as you watch others on the Laguna 9th and Millennium 18th

John Bennett2016-04-22
Excellent

Eriks Eglitis2016-04-15
Starter did great job explaining details not shown in the map on the scorecard - where are road crossings, etc. Nice course - refreshing elevation changes. Worth returning.

John Walsh 2016-03-21
Very good

lynn fletcher2016-03-17
Good clubhouse and facilities more mature course

Rene Olthof 2016-03-17
nr 2

Huber Othmar2016-03-11
Golfcourse in poor condition At 3 fairways no grass !!!!

Axel Heuser2016-03-01
very nice course, fast greens, friedly personal

George Rutherford2016-02-12
Normally we play herebecause our accomodation is nearby and the course is a good test.One green out of commission Repairs being carried out We had to start at the tenth due to the course being very busy bECAUSE OF THIS WE STRUGGLED TO COMPLETE OUR ROUND IN DAYLIGHT

Eckhardt Teiber2016-02-10
Empfang und Starter sehr freundlich. Golfplatz in sehr gutem Zustand.

Trevor Wills2016-02-04
This being one of the less expensive courses gives a wrong impression. It was a very nice experience and certainly one we will play again.

Fiedler, Manfred2016-01-31
Sehr gut

Mike Williams2016-01-17
The best of the 3 at vilamoura that we played......tight but in great condition despite some heavy rain. All staff very nice and pleasant and assisted in making this a great trip.

Torben iversholt2015-12-12
Great course. We got more than we expected

geoff ball2015-11-29
Golf course and service all good

Martin Hogan2015-11-23
Best of the three. Staff excellent. Facilities excellent.

Mark Burrell2015-11-16
Superb condition and some very interesting holes.

James small2015-11-06
similar experience to previous day at Laguna-a slow group tee-ed off in front of us at 10th and again ruined an enjoyable days golf. I asked for an explanation in pro shop and was told they had let group in front thru. - I do not believe this to be the case as it happened on the 10th beside the club house.

Patrtick Reddan2015-11-05
Most enjoyBle

Mrs. Mary Stephanie Liddell2015-11-03
Liked the old fashionedness of this course. Tight fairways with loads of cork trees. Once again staff etc. very helpful. Bar etc. very busy so didn't go in for drink/snack so can't comment on that.

David Stewart2015-10-31
Fair, course not in great condition

Gerda Overwater2015-10-29
Very difficult, but wonderful course. Friendly ladies at the reception desk. Come back and play here again.

Robert Fleming2015-10-28
Good although greens were poor.

ian sanderson2015-10-26
better than expected

Paul Bennett2015-10-26
Second only to The Old Course in the beauty stakes!

Paul Reynolds2015-10-25
great facilities but the course seemed a little unkept to use. A great layout though and a decent test.

Peter McMahon2015-10-23
The course was in great condition and the staff on and off the course provided a relaxed and friendly service

Derek Thomas2015-10-19
Course looked a bit tired

Chez Carlos Golf Society2012-04-15
It was high time to return back to Pinhal especially with the Oceanico Easter Special green fee rates in force and buggies at just €15.00. Particular mention has to be made to the course which was in great condition especially when there was some criticism of its awhile ago. Some of the group had not played it for several years - we were all impressed. Blustery and changeable conditions today but at least there is some shelter on this one compared to Laguna. It was a great days golf and we returned back to the spirtual home of the Society the Chez Carlos Bar & Restaurant which had reopened the last week.

Chez Carlos Golf Society2011-12-26
Turkey and trimmings were on hold as an ensemble of x8 players eager to make the best of the fine weather gathered at Pinhal for the Society's Christmas Day Competition. All other Oceanico courses were closed as part of the ongoing winter maintenance programme so it was also an opportunity to find out if the rumours about the poor condition of Pinhal were true. I am pleased to report they were not. Greens were fine though rather slow to what we have been use to recently. New buggy paths have been laid down as well as an extensive prunning of the pines trees thus allowing more light onto the course. All in all it was good condition for winter.
