Vilamoura

Oceânico Laguna

One of the world-famous Vilamoura golf courses, Oceânico Laguna offers an enduring challenge to any player. Set in low-lying coastal terrain, many of its holes convey a links atmosphere. The wide fairways have very few trees and the strong wind can occasionally cause things to go awry. Although the course isn’t particularly long, water hazards, lakes (which attract a variety of aquatic birds) and 79 strategically placed bunkers are incorporated into the fairly flat layout. The memorable 5th hole, par-4 requires pinpoint accuracy to make the shot over the lake.

Vilamoura has long been acknowledged as one of Europe’s principal golfing resorts.

Oceânico Old Course

Described as the Grande Dame of the Algarve, the Oceânico Old Course is one of the oldest and most popular golf courses in Portugal. Renovated and modernised in 1996 while staying true to the original design, the verdant fairways are perfectly maintained by a sophisticated new irrigation system and managed sustainably with strict environmental protection practices. A majestic forest of umbrella pines is the trademark of this course – but potentially its greatest challenge. In 2009, the Old Course was ranked in Golf World UK’s Top 100 Golf Courses in continental Europe. An outstanding site for a truly memorable round of golf.

Oceânico Pinhal

Inaugurated in 1976, the distinguished Oceânico Pinhal course has been refined over the years. Renowned for its immaculate fairways lined with pine trees, the first nine holes meander through an exclusive residential complex while the second nine have been built on rolling parkland terrain offering glimpses of the sea. One of the defining characteristics of this course is the small size of its greens, requiring great precision in terms of approach shots. The signature hole of Pinhal is the 4th hole par 4, a complex shot played over a small lake to an undulating green.

Vila Sol

Acclaimed for its commitment to conserve the biodiversity of the area, Vila Sol is situated in pristine natural surroundings. Inaugurated in 1991 with a focus on protecting local flora and fauna, the course winds through an immense forest of pine, fig, oak and almond trees. The 27-hole course is divided into three loops with different levels of difficulty: Prime, Challenge and Prestige.
