Top hint for this course

As you're the one booking the whole group trip, we thought we'd tell you a secret to get ahead of your mates. On the 7th it's best to favour the left slightly to move away from the woods on the right. The second shot is uphill, meaning that a mid-iron would help you out nicely for the rest of the hole.

Full Course Lowdown

This traditional course managed to keep its unique aspects while taking on renovations from famous architect Robert Trent Jones. It has made for an excellent course that presents many different challenges for duffers to seasoned pros.

The many water hazards, bunkers, complicated doglegs, and woods surrounding the fairways make a demanding round of golf. But if you put in the practice hours then no problem, right?

If you're looking to complete the best courses in the Algarve, you'll want to tick this one off.


This lengthy 72-par round is not to be underestimated. At the beginning, a beefy par-5 kick-starts the round. The left side of the fairway is the money shot as that gives the best chance of an easy second attempt.

On the 8th, it's renowned for being one of the most aesthetically pleasing holes. But don't let these looks deceive you - you must bring your best chipping skills to clear the water and get onto the dancefloor. Your mate that bangs on about his chipping game will finally have to walk the walk.

To close the round, a difficult par-4 with a dogleg left protects the green. Each side of the dancefloor is surrounded by bunkers, so getting a par or even below would earn a pint from each of the squad.


The outdoor terrace for this 19th hole is the ultimate spot to chill after a competitive 18-hole. Top up your tan whilst admiring the palm trees and blue skies. It's the perfect venue for the group's post-game analysis. Figure out who owes you a pint for that birdie bet.

If you fancy some home comforts or wish to adventure into Portuguese cuisine, this menu has got your back. Its lively atmosphere, wide range of food and ice-cold beverages make it great for pre-loading before heading out to town.

Handicap allowance: Men 28 / Ladies 36
