Once again here to stay in the villa. Weather has been good so far, although a little windy today. There is work going on around our villa, which is much needed, but this has been carried out with sensitivity. Always good to come to our second home

For the second year running sixteen golfers took on both the Royal and Ocean golf courses. Again we found the courses in great condition and the new outside drinking area was really nice. The whole operation is very slick and professional. Pace of play was good less than four hours on both courses. Thank you again.

Played the Royal for the first time in years and was impressed by the quality of the course. The greens were immaculate and the fairways were well kept. Well marshaled to make sure no hold ups. Altogether a brilliant round of golf. The coffees in the clubhouse cost a fortune otherwise all was good.

I'll write a detailed review next week. Essentially I found the course too expensive for the condition it was in (sanded greens yet no discount), lacklustre marshalling (5 hour pace), and 'invisible' refreshments cart.

Probably the best course we've played in The Algarve in the 11 years we have been going. It can be quite a hike with a few hills and plenty of distance from one green to the next tee on some holes so a buggy is probably recommended. We walked and were informed by a marshal on the 16th green that... More

Very nice golf course and clubhouse. Must keep the ball on fairway. Bit of a trek between greens and tees. Good value for 85euro. ( and yes I did par "The Par 3") :)
