Description

Vilamoura Old Course, now part of the Oceanico Golf Group, is the second oldest course in the Algarve, is renown worldwide and has undeniably remained one of Portugal's finest courses.

Originally designed  Frank Pennink and opened in 1969 the course was remodelled by Martin Hawtree in 1996, However, Hawtree retained the essential quality of the original Pennink design.

The fairways of the Old Course are wonderfully crafted, realtively tight and tree lined and meander across the gently undulating terrain making straight driving crucial (trees being the principal hazard).

The tees are always beautifully kept, the fairways wonderfully maintained and the greens, although small by modern standards, immaculately maintained.

For the purist - Greens are of Bentgrass (variety Providence), the fairways are of Burmuda Tifton 419 (overseeded with Lollium Perenne) and the surrounds & rough are of Lollium Perenne.

In summary, a great course for golfers of any ability but demanding of consideration of shot placement to score well.

The 1996 remodelling also included the building of a lovely new clubhouse with all the facilities you would expect from a club of this standing.

Visitors are welcome but handicap certificate is required. Contact club to make arrangements.

Old Course

This for me is maybe the best course in the Algarve. Maybe only bettered by the new Nick Faldo and Christy Oconnor course.
