This course is the other side of the road from Quinta do Vale, so suffers from the same problems - green to tee walks and elevation changes.
Of the two courses this is by far the best, but don't upset Manuel the Caddie Master.
It is quite a tight course, but it helps that mostly it is forgiving enough to return your ball to a place that is playable, if not where you'd want it. Greens were the best of the week, most had a bit of character and made you think about the shot.bunkers and water were in plentiful supply, but bail out areas were there to be used.
Plenty of views for you to look at if the golf goes awry and like at do Vale, you can get a glimpse of Spain across the river.
Another course that is worth a visit again in the future.
