Overview
More
The Ocean Golf Course features undulating fairways which run alongside nature reserve, before leading gently down to the shores of the Atlantic The front nine are located on a slightly hilly land which characterises Vale do Lobo, surrounded by pine trees with sea view from several holes. The back nine in particular are characterised by spectacular ocean views, with some holes almost stretching down to the beach. On reaching the brow of the hill on the 11th, players come suddenly upon a sight fit to take the most concentrated golfer's breath away. The fairway runs directly down towards the beach and, for the next few holes, outstanding views and Atlantic breezes are guaranteed to make a player's round exhilarating, even if his game is below expectations.

Excellent golf course. Played the back 9 which have stunning views. Well manicured course. Usually need a handicap to play. But allowed us to play the back nine in the morning without needing to hire a pro.More

Excellent club house and facilities within this well established golfing mecca. A little over built but the sensational costal holes make up for it as does the numerous and spectacular water features and well cared for greens.More
