Vale do Lobo Royal - latest comments and reviews

Frank Haidinger 2022-01-14
Course in perfect shape, but not really more interesting than other courses in the area - just another parkland course plus two nice holes at 15 and 16. Significantly overpriced in comparison to what they are offering.

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2022-01-12
Dieser Golfplatz gehört auch zu den schöneren der Algarve und hat wie der Vale do Loba Ocean berühmte Löcher. Jedoch war er zu unserer Zeit nicht toll gepflegt, vor allem waren einige Abschläge in schlechtem Zustand.

Michel Follonier 2022-01-09
The reception staff could be more friendly. The course is in very good conditions and playing on January 1st with few people on the course was a real pleasure.

Helmut Eftimiu 2022-01-01
Perfect service, very easy and uncomplicated. Thank you!

Gerard van Ierland 2021-12-16
The Course was not that what we expected. TeeTimes did a great job !!!! Thanks Boas Festas for you all

Pascal Plichta 2021-12-14
Superbe parcours, je recommande

Barry Whittles 2021-12-03
Great day staff all very helpful

Daniel Ritchie 2021-11-30
Greens hollow tined.

Stefan Portmann 2021-11-28

Fred Scheve 2021-11-22
Royal course is so funny

Andrew Bennett 2021-11-22
Great course. In great condition. Played at 8am- not busy, no hold ups. Completed the round in 3.5 hours.

Per Lauritsen 2021-11-22
Perfect course but poor service in the restaurant

Fred Scheve 2021-11-19
Great course

Hervé Maillard 2021-11-16

Thomas Carey 2021-11-12
I precooked balls for the range at Vale DeLobo Royal but the golf course did not recognise and I had to pay again. The range there is very poor quality and the service was poor.

Mark Schmitz 2021-11-12
Very loud course - at every third hole greenkeepers with blowers or cutters. Houses beside the course are built every third hole and this also creates a lot of noise. The place is not recommended from our point of view.

Nigel Dickinson 2021-11-08
Service excellent, facilities excellent, course condition a little scruffy in places certainly compared to QdLago N,S and Laranjal

Nick Fry 2021-11-06
All good

Anne Nikolaisen 2021-11-06
Very nice ????????????

Anthony Coombs 2021-11-04
Compared to the Ocean course, the Royal is better in all respects. Paths, fairways, greens are all in good condition. We did find the pace of play slow being 2:20 for the outward 9, but 2:40 for the back nine. We only saw one course Marshall who did not appear to be either concerned or doing anything to assist. Overall an enjoyable round on a challenging course.

Ronald Lee 2021-11-04
excellent check in , friendly staff, excellent tee boxes, fairways and greens

Pedro Chaparreiro 2021-11-04

Neil Jeffrey 2021-11-02
Very straight forward check in and the bar staff were helpful getting us some breakfast before we teed off.

Mark Armitage 2021-10-27
Fantastic course

David Burley 2021-10-24
Lovely picturesque course and nice club house

Angela Pott 2021-10-24
Nice course, fast greens, well maintained fairways. Friendly staff. We teed off at 7:50 and the course was ours: 3 hours 20 min.

Barry Fower 2021-10-24
Great course with some really scenic holes, the hole of the ocean has to be seen to be believed, course in good condition and club house, Marshall’s etc. all really friendly and relaxed.

Liam O'tuama 2021-10-22
Very good course

Tony Suwalski 2021-10-12
Course in good condition and starter very helpful

Roy G. Jack 2021-10-12
Having played here many times before, again, we were not disappointed by the standards at Vale do Lobo. Keep it up Guy's, you are doing a great job.

Alan Gray 2021-10-12
The course was untidy and the greens were covered in unrepaired pitch marks. There are much better courses in the area

Mark Kelly 2021-10-11
Excellent day of golf followed by a nice lunch. Great service all day

Pierre-Alain DEVAUD 2021-10-08
I hoped for a better course. Some holes are not interesting. There is a lot of marks on their greens, pitches, foot and other.

John Ake Andersson 2021-10-06
Nice Course good restaurang

John Rowcroft 2021-10-05
A lot disappointed for the extra cost from June. Over played without being maintained to a standard you would except and not any better than when we have played in June Low season.

Stuart meads 2021-10-02
It was in great condition today & the greens held very well.

Philip Kucharski 2021-09-30
Beautiful course with lovely views and a wonderful clubhouse. The tee boxes, fqirways and greens are all in mint conditionand the course is a real joy to play on !

Gareth John 2021-09-29
Very enjoyable, the signature 16th hole is breathtaking -

Richard Grove 2021-09-27
Great course. All went very well

James Fox 2021-09-26

Paul Honey 2021-09-25
One of my all time favourite courses that it feels a true privilege to play as everything about it is just quality

David Stanhope 2021-09-23
Excellent course and we were very well looked after by the team, we just wish the other golfers looked after the greens better and repaired their pitch marks!

Owen White 2021-09-22
In good condition, Great Service, Beautiful venue.

Frederick Brownson 2021-09-21
Top class. Beautiful course. Virtually every hole with its unique challenge. 7,9 and 16 stand out for their beauty. Everyone thing about the place is classy. - buggy hire, club house meals. Edges the old course for its beauty. Best course we played & would recommend to others

Maurice Rogers 2021-09-21
A spectacular course, let down by some scruffy greens.

Michael Carter 2021-09-21
Nice course some stunning holes.

James Shotton 2021-09-21
Lovely Signature Hole but felt the rest of the course wasn't great but still a nice course to play

Glenn Byles 2021-09-17
Nice course, starter Marshall very pleasant but, too busy which reflected on the slow service after the golf.

Laurence Roberts 2021-09-17
A challenging and very interesting course. Actually felt it was even better than the Ocean course but both were great to play. The 250 yard par 3 off the back tee over the ravine after sunset was particularly challenging........! Went for lunch in the Spikes restaurant before teeing off. Unfortunately service in there was very slow and appeared quite disorganised, with many clients including us struggling to get served. Fortunately we arrived 2 1/2 hours before teeing off so made it ok.

Dolbeau Philippe 2021-09-16
Disapointed. Course not well maintened. Not so nice, compare to others on the area. Too many ugly houses along, roads. Bad welcome on thé Golf Center.

Dr. Klaus Mittelbach 2021-09-10
Course in a good shape, check in in particular under corona condition well organised, never the less very poor driving range

Paul Turner 2021-09-06
Enjoyable round of golf although the course was not in as good a condition as The Ocean

Nigel Wood 2021-09-06
A great course with a super setting. Some easy holes combined with some really challenging ones. A great overall experience

Vanessa Culshaw 2021-09-03
Very efficient from booking in to starter etc. Greens poor condition

Francesco Angiulli 2021-09-01
Nice day beautiful golf course Everything’s fine

Lee Venus 2021-08-29
Vale Do Lobo was very welcoming to my Wife and I. The Royal Course was in fantastic condition. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and to top it off, I had a hole in one on the 9th hole….
Tee Times reply: Congratulatios for your hole in One, mr Lee Venus. 9th not a easy hole

Richard Johnston 2021-08-19
Played two rounds - Ocean course and Royal course ( everyone preferred the layout of the Royal) but both were well run and great condition Booking with Vera at Tee Times was great and got the best price I could find. A mix up with the course about the cost of club hire was quickly rectified by Vera ( although I felt the people at the club could and should have been more helpful.

Philippe Pineau 2021-08-12
Vale do Lobo Royal is a nice course, in very good condition but the greens that have been aerated lately. Car park too small, especially when part of it is used for car démo. Causing gridlock, can’t even drop golf bags! Need organisation. Credit card terminal at golf reception not working properly, causing annoying delays.

Georges da violante 2021-08-04
Great golf but very difficult to park my car and it is not possible to use drivers and woods at the driving range.

Mike Smith 2021-07-13
Really enjoyed the course. It was in great condition.

Adrian Fraser Jones 2021-07-03
A challenging course in very good conditions -The 15 th and 16 th holes are probably some of the most picturesque golf holes in the Algarve .

Chris Ray 2021-06-24

Roderick Lagendijk 2021-06-20
It was a good experience. Nice and helpfull staff. We could start one hour prior of our teetime which we liked pretty much!

Carl Bak 2021-06-15

Huw Evans 2021-06-13
Very nice course, thoroughly enjoyed. Shop wasn’t open as it was Sunday

Alan Kilcullen 2021-06-12
Very efficient

Gordon Fleming 2021-06-09
Great course in fantastic condition, staff all helpful, good value

William Ball 2021-05-28
Very enjoyable day. Cart tracks a bit bumpy..

Phil Huxley 2021-05-27
Very friendly staff and an excellent course. However, we were held up by a group of players who refused to let us play through. I don’t know if there is a handicap limit to play the course because I was not asked. The 4 ball in front of us did not appear to know the basic rules of etiquette, despite myself and playing partner asking politely if we could play through. Having said that, the course is wonderful and in beautiful condition. I do feel that course marshals need to be more evident to alleviate the problem of slow play and high handicap golfers holding up groups behind.

Chris Dennison 2021-05-27
Royal is an iconic course but also very playable. The tees and fairways are in good condition and the greens are excellent and not shaved to the last mm making them impossibly quick. The staff are both professional and helpful, the Marshall started us as a two ball off the second tees so that we would not be behind two slow four balls. Hence the round was quick and uninterrupted: real millionaires golf. Worth the premium!

Philippe Pineau 2021-05-25
Vale do Lobo Royal est un parcours très agréable et en bon état actuellement. Des trous fabuleux (15 et 16). Les trous sont jouables par tous niveaux de golf (sauf le 9: petit green en presqu’ile). Bon putting green. Le chipping green est loin de la club house, et le driving range laisse à désirer. Club house sympa, pro shop, etc… tout est bien. Les départs du trou signature (#16) ont été reconstruits en terrasse, doivent ouvrir prochainement. Un des emblèmes du golf en Algarve: A jouer!

Mark Hutch 2021-05-24

shapiro martin 2021-05-21
easy and dependable way to book the course with a quick view to availability of flights and prices...a minor issue solved with an email!! will definetly recommend tee

Christophe Balland 2021-05-13
Vale do Lobo Royal overall in very good condition (mid May21) Especially the greens which are in the best possible condition at this time of the year when Poa annua is growing seed heads. The greens were rolled to smoothen the surface and give speed and true roll. Buggy battery hardly made it to the 18 holes (not fully charged at start) Nice club house and facilities. But, not very easy to find the golf desk. Need a sign at the roundabout for direction from the 16th green to the 17th tee. Some beautiful holes. Playable by all levels (except the par 3 9th).

Orlando Scherz 2021-04-12
The golf course Vale do Lobo is outstanding. Had a blast on this 18 Holes.

Petr Hübl 2021-01-25
great diversity of holes, fantastic 16,

Mark Higgins 2021-01-25
Loved the course, very good value for money, beautiful condition. Everything was amazing

Charles 2020-03-17
Comments apply to all 3 reservations made for me. It is a great act of faith purchasing something on line without any previous dealings and an offer price more competitive than we had had through our vacation management company. All the arrangements worked a treat and I will have no hesitation in using your service again or recommending to others

Jacques Deschenes 2020-02-22
Best course ever player. Will stay in my dream for ever Merci de nous donner l’opportunité de jouer ce terrain à un prix abordable

Laurence Whittal-Williams 2020-02-20
A hard walk but excellent course with a variety of challenging holes all in excellent condition.

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2020-01-03
Ein schöner, immer gut gepflegter Platz mit vielen Herauforderungen und wegen der Höhen und Tiefen recht anstrengend. Die Ausblicke auf den Löchern 15 und 16 sind wunderschön und unvergesslich! Das Personal ist ausgesprochen freundlich.

David Schofield 2019-12-03
We had a great round of golf, the course was amazing and staff were excellent. I cannot fault the service we received

Robert Moore 2019-10-08
I had forgotten how good a course this is. It's short off the yellows but there are so few bad holes. The back nine is an absolute pleasure and the run from 3-7 isn't that bad either. Due to unforseen circumstances, the size of our party halved on the eve of the event and the pro shop were so accommodating in terms of ensuring we received a refund for those players. Service in Spikes bar well improved as well! If you get a chance, use the Royal Spa after your round (40 EUR for 2) for a bit of well deserved relaxation!

dehodencq 2019-10-01
Nice golf but it’s a pity that no towel is available in the showers

Vladka Dvorakova 2019-10-01
The courses perfect!!! The receprion service at Valo de Lobo - a bit slow and complicated procedure- (e.g. why is the paper voucher requested?)

Adam Stevenson 2019-09-30
Amazing course, lack of driving range was a little disappointing

Andrew Melvin 2019-09-29
Great course. Perhaps the Ocean Course is amrginally better. Lovely views along the beach. Wonderful clubhouse.

Stephen Lee 2019-09-28
From the moment you arrive the staff are friendly, attentive & polite. The course is manicured & well maintained. A must if your intending to play in Portugal.

Dino Schoenberg 2019-09-28
Nice and interesting course. Outstanding view on hole 16. course is difficult to find with GPS.

Christopher Carpenter 2019-09-24
The Royal was fantastic

Bob Bruce 2019-09-23
worked well, good pick up return service

Adele Zwart 2019-09-19

Richard Magee 2019-09-05
Another sublime course, great course conditions and unbelievable scenery. It was much busier than the others we've played, but that speaks volumes of the quality of the course. A free buggie also made for a relatively cheap afternoon. Will definitely be back!

Craig Walker 2019-08-26
Good condition and pretty tight making it a challenge. Not as scenic as the ocean course which we preferred. Staff and clubhouse were excellent

Martin Hibbert 2019-07-26
Brilliant course layout and condition. The staff were very polite and professional

Bob Paduch 2019-07-22
Excellent course with great facilities

Carlos Cardoso 2019-06-21

John Rowcroft 2019-06-17
Very good facilities, great service from the staff. Coarse in great condition with exceptional greens.

Pål Henriksen 2019-06-15
Vale Do Lobo Royal, pristine conditions, a bit tough cookie, but my oh my how fun. Played yet another good round. And played slot better than when I was here and played ocean. Condition on greens, fw, rough and sand was epic!! I really liked it here ;) The staff also shall have their applause, well deserved. Professional and helpful. That has been the signature of the Portugese, extremely helpful and ppl persons. Thank you all again.

jonathan thomson 2019-06-15
Played for 4th time great condition as ever. Pace of play was slow and backlogged at famous 16th but that’s to be expected great course must play

Alan cox 2019-05-10
Every one from reception to starter were very helpful and the course was excellent

Paul Fernandez 2019-05-10
Also and excellent venue, only comment would be the greens needed cutting / rolling were much slower than Ocean course Plus were behind a 4 ball in twilight round who’s standard of golf was shocking and would challenge their ability to be allowed to play. Man and woman of 4 ball repeatedly took 2-3 balls each off the tee!!

Ronnie Masterson 2019-05-06
It was the best course we played out of the 5 the staff were friendly and very helpful out of ten it was a 10 out of 10 tanks for everything you were so good to us hope to talk again by for now

Peter S Watson 2019-05-02
Good course, well maintained and managed. Good greens. Food and service excellent. Happy to return soon.

Steve Richmond 2019-04-25
We always enjoy playing at Vale Do Lobo and this year was no different. Very professional from arrival to departure and the course was in excellent condition.

Stuart McGregor 2019-04-03
Fantastic golf at VDL Royal. Only charged €1.00 for my 11 year old son fantastic.

Max Cornish 2019-02-05
Nice course. Fair challenge. In good condition for Jan/Feb

Joachim Plinke 2019-01-14
Lovely golfcourse, very friendly welcome at the reception

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2018-12-26
Ein toller Platz mit dem besonderen Loch 16! Er ist in einem bemerkenswert guten Zustand. Das Klubhaus ist einladend, der Service zuvorkommend.

Dr Chris Ashton 2018-12-21
Excellent. Course was very accommodating when we wanted to change our tee time. Very friendly and helpful staff. Course in great condition and we played well.

James Tannett 2018-12-16
Second time have played here. Worth it for the par 3 16th alone.... good condition, need a buggy as some big gaps between some of the holes. Other course was closed for maintenance otherwise would have played here too.

Padraic Ó Dubhshláine 2018-11-28
The Vale Do Lobo Royal course was very nice. It was tight in places and if you are a little wild off the tee, it may prove to be very penalizing. That being said, the layout was enjoyable and it proved a good challenge. Unfortunately when we played it was very wet as Portugal had encountered unprecedented rainfall so we can completely understand why it was a little wet. The facilities are very good, reception, changing rooms, putting green were all very good, but the driving range is restricted to a maximum of a 9 iron which is not great. The waiting staff were not very accommodating as we found ourselves asking 3 times for menus for food, but when we got the food, it was very tasty and filling. Overall the course was tricky, challenging and unfair at times, but as a resort or package course outside of the vilamoura courses, I would recommend it after the ocean course.

Aidan O'Byrne 2018-11-24
Overall our experience was very good , we knew teeing off at 1pm that time would be tight and we got quickly around to the 15th where there was a long wait as a number of groups took photos of the iconic 16th -

Gillian Travis 2018-11-21
Great layout, some tight & interesting holes & overall in good condition despite the wet weather. Unfortunately very busy with too many players on the golf course & the marshall's going round & only saying 'hello'. They really need to do something about SLOW PLAY & large groups holding up the whole course. Would return & try again.

Mikko Raunio 2018-11-09
I like the course and the properties were not too close to the fairways, as someone reviewed. The signature hole 16 was quite tough as it was strong wind against - my ball ended 0,5 m too short in a bunker.

Mr Matt Grant 2018-10-12
Great course, with some fantastic holes, 15 great view down to the sea and as for 16, awesome par 3, would definitely recommend

Steven 2018-10-01
Great course in immaculate condition. 16th hole is truly spectacular!

Ben ainsworth 2018-10-01
loved the 16th hole take a camera stunning hole .. facilities on golf course brilliant

Cheryl Myles 2018-09-21
What a stunning course. Beautiful scenery and it’s true what they say you must play the 16th hole the views are fantastic and a little risk is richly rewarded. Fairways and greens in very good condition and the facilities are second to none. All the staff are helpful. Drinks buggy comes round often. Yes it is expensive but I would say it’s a must play if I’m the area.

Phil Sharpe 2018-09-17
Loved the course, in great condition. Superb facilities, not the cheapest part of the Algarve but definitely worth a visit

Kieran Roche 2018-09-14
In my top 3 golf courses I have played. Fabulous condition, really varied challenge and can't fault it

Darren Johnson 2018-09-13
Brilliant course! Treated brilliantly by all the staff

Marcus Caple 2018-09-09
Absolutely fantastic from booking to arrival and the course itself

Anne Nikolaisen 2018-06-22
That course is a beauty ???????????? In good condition and I love the layout.

Paul Stevens 2018-06-18
Course itself is very playable for all handicappers and in better condition than I've seen in the past. However, service at the bar/restaurant was very poor and the food very overpriced and of a low standard.

Very enjoyable. It is a little more difficult than the Ocean Course and being out early we had no hold ups. Breakfast at Spikes at the clubhouse very enjoyable.

MHenderson 2018-06-03
Top class golf course in great condition

David Jones 2018-05-25
Absolutely stunning golf course, in fantastic condition

Ian Green 2018-05-14
The whole course / location and set up is fantastic. the course was in amazing condition, 1 not to be missed.

Cuny Philippe 2018-05-02
It was really good

Mike Ward 2018-05-02
We [played the Royal course which was in superb condition. A really playable course, well laid out, some stunning scenery creating very enjoyable holiday golf. The whole experience at Vale Do Lobo was excellent, a warm welcome at reception, excellent facilities, lovely set up with great bar, locker rooms etc. The starter and caddie masters were very helpful which all contributed to a lovely all round experience. Highly recommended.

monty brittain 2018-01-15
The Royal is the best course we played

westley macey 2016-10-19
My favourite of the week just . A good test of golf tougher than the ocean course it great condition fast true greens a great variety of holes stunning views and of course the par 3 16th the 200 yd carry or so over the cliffs and beach below clubhouse great would return without hesitancy

Doug Smith 2016-08-09
The general condition of the course was good. The greens were true and in good condition. It was an extremely hot day but we only saw the comfort/bar buggy twice. Shame about latest erosion of the cliffs around the 16th tee. Overall a good experience.

Florian Greiner 2021-04-24
Wonderfully day !

Guidi Giovanni 2021-04-23
Perfect ????

Neil Macklin 2021-04-06
the golf course was in world class condition .. plus new buggies as well ..

Ian McKnight 2021-01-25
Great course but one poor staff member did his best to spoil things.

Dr. Klaus Mittelbach 2020-12-30
Everything all right. Good restaurant

Libby Lennox 2020-12-14
Compared to earlier in the year when I last played the Royal Course I thought the Fairways have a lot of the creeping grass appearing on them and the greens were very bumpy.

Andy Chambers 2020-03-09
excellent course

Pietro Torretta 2020-03-07
Very nice experience i played on Royal Course: excellent

Tony Burgess 2020-03-05
Very good website to book through. Course was great.

Neil Rodgerson 2020-03-01
Fab course. Always in great condition.

Albert Yu 2020-02-29
good and well maintain course, beautiful set up

René Lachance 2020-02-27
Very nice course with an excellent reception from staff. Played at 7 o'clock was a little bit frisky but very enjoyable

Howard Grice 2020-02-21
Easy check in. Good service. Good pace of play for 1pm start Course in very good condition. Enjoyable experience.

Ray Boxwell 2020-02-17
Staff were ok considering the mix up, course ok

Stephen Liddell 2020-02-12
Golfcourse was in a poor condition!!! I have seen it better !!! Poor Buggy paths and lots of branches and rest from nature lying around !!! Time to leave Vale do Lobo alone for the next few years !!!! At least no Marschall problems !!!

George Fotopoulos 2020-01-30
Marisa has been AWESOME to deal with !

Anne Nikolaisen 2020-01-28
The Courses at Vale do Lobo are fantastic ! But had to pay 45 Euro for buggy, it is too expensive!

Jan Sklepek 2020-01-12
Der Platz ist stehts in einem exzellenten Zustand. Die Frauenabschläge könnten gerade sein, ab und zu findet man wellige Abschläge

Brian AH-CHUEN 2020-01-04
Check-in very efficient given we also needed to hire buggy, trolley and clubs. Course is of high quality.

Alan Masters 2020-01-02
Both enjoyed the course, although a lot of walking between greens and tees. Greens were quicker than practice green and in good condition. We also had to play in a fourball as course quite busy.

John 2019-12-31
The course was in reasonable condition and play was reasonably quick. Good value for money, especially for juniors although they charge lots for the add ons (buggies etc). Club house food is the best around

James Ellis 2019-12-31
Sunset in Sweet 16 fantastic

Boitard Jean-Paul 2019-12-12
très beau golf, fairway en très bon état.

Dr Chris Ashton 2019-12-10
Excellent course in great condition. Starters/staff very friendly and accommodating.

James Tannett 2019-12-09
Great day, weather excellent for time of year. Just enough time teeing off at 1315 but no hold ups at all. Course in excellent condition. Play here every year for our first round and never disappoints.

Simon Richardson 2019-12-06
Cracking course, well kept in December. Fairways great to play off, greens received well and rolled true. Exceptional facilities and professional staff.

Pirjo Santala 2019-11-28
One of the best in Vilamoura

Stefan Junk 2019-11-27
Everything was fine, every Person was very friendly and the Course in Good condition!

Tibor Mlynka 2019-11-15
very well

Mr Stephen W A Chapman 2019-11-09
Had a great afternoon with my son, the only thing was a Chinese couple in front of us playing a 4 ball round between the 2 of them

Anne Nikolaisen 2019-11-05
Nice course

Ben Standley 2019-10-30
Very impressed with Vale do Lobo Very friendly staff and great clubhouse.Golf course in good condition. Will return.

Nick Fry 2019-10-27
Course in good condition but currently not as good as the Ocean course

Ivan 2019-10-25
Everything was in order. The condition of the greens could have been better

Andrew Brackenbury 2019-10-24
Great course. Played many times. This time on holiday with family so got first tee of the day. Just me and the green-keepers. Round in under 3hrs. Great clubhouse facilities.

Lee Doyle 2019-10-23
We originally booked to play royal course on 19th but the weather caused us to be abandoned after 3 holes but the course staff were fantastic gave us a voucher to play early on 22nd before our flight home and it was one of the best courses I’ve ever played

TERRY DIXON 2019-10-18
Exceptional course

Lovera Philippe 2019-10-18
Très beau parcours et bien varié

Mark Baynes 2019-10-16
good course. Well maintained.

Stephen Russell 2019-10-15
Great service by staff and very friendly.

Neill Richardson 2019-10-14
Superb course and facilities

David Burley 2019-10-13
one of the best courses we played this year excellent condition and wonderful views and no problem with the service at the bar this time.

Jan Vermeesch 2019-10-10
In comparison with other courses, we found the quality of the fairways and greens to be a bit disappointing. Not in relation to the price you pay to play. We had a nice round but prefer Ocean above Royal.

Adrian Thorogood 2019-10-07
Lovely course in good condition except the tee boxes were awful.

Petr Hoffmann 2019-10-04
not well maintained tees

Russell Smith 2019-09-30
What a great course - it is such a shame that the 2nd half of our round on Royal was so slow. We didn't quite make it round the full 18 before the sun went down. The facilities at Vale do Lobo are brilliant and the staff cannot do enough for you. I will come back

Avril Davis 2019-09-19
Had a fab time in vale do lobo royal. Loved course and all staff were very nice and helpful.

Glyn Richards 2019-09-18
Played Vale do lobo for a number of years, this year payed £100 per round on the ocean and Royal and the quality is very poor, this venue over the past number of years has been top class, have played Vale do lobo for the last 10 years but will not be back next year, Vale do lobo up your game

Phil Clements 2019-09-18
Again a great course and wanted to stay for longer post round. 2019-09-17
We went around in 3.5 hours during twilight which was brilliant. The Ocean course took us nearer 5 hours - the rangers need to keep up the speed of play and let faster groups through

glenn weston 2019-09-14
very good course good greens and great course layout

Carol Lane 2019-09-11
Reception staff fantastic. Course was stunning and greens true. Quieter than other courses

Gregg Hastings 2019-09-11
Very enjoyable, lovely course

Giovanni D Elia 2019-09-03
Was a great Game. Expected to have a display in the buggy and more friendly workers in the shop

Phil Williams 2019-08-31
Prefer this course to the Ocean but in fairness, both are great

M. Perez de Zabalza 2019-08-29
Excellent field, marvellous hole near the sea.

Andrew Slavin 2019-08-28
wonderful day out at a superb golf course and well looked after by the team at Vale de Lobo

Jan Hoogenboom 2019-08-21
Great round. We had an even earlier start.

Keith Walker 2019-07-31
Great course in very good condition just a shame there is so much distance between greens and tees

John Powell 2019-07-29
The course was quite quiet - which is different than my previous experience of both Vale do lobo courses, this was very good as it meant that I could play to a good speed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The course is in great condition - really enjoyed playing.

Tom Frost 2019-07-28
The best course I have ever played on. The condition was immaculate and topped off by the amazing scenery surrounding it.

John Hendry 2019-07-28
Played on the sunset deal with buggy included, we went round in 3.5 hours and could have been quicker. Course is lovely and in great condition. Good holes with some spectacular ones. Staff all very friendly.

Andrew Lawrence 2019-07-26
Course in mint condition.

Richard Debney 2019-07-24

Dave Sherry 2019-07-20
Very enjoyable

James Love 2019-07-07
Course was in excellent condition, pace of play was very good under 4 hours for a round.

Andy Mee 2019-07-07
Excellent course in great condition. 16th hole didn't disappoint!

Denis Ovens 2019-07-06

Sam Dempsey 2019-07-05
Excellent course and great value. Exceptional service on the main desk and from the starter on the first tee. Couldn’t be better!

Mr D W Huckerby 2019-07-04
Excellent course ,staff really good ,transfers excellent can’t wait to play it again

Mr D W Huckerby 2019-07-02
Very good course transfers from hotel and back excellent

Andy Monk 2019-06-29
Lovely course great condition throughout

John Hannan 2019-06-29
Course is in great shape. Lovely golf club and staff are very pleasant

nick MacHugh 2019-06-23
VDL Royal remains a decent track but it has been overtaken by many of its new neighbours. Pace of play was too slow and this is caused by the quality of golfers allowed on the course. Two of the three ball in front of us could hardly hit the ball and when one of their first tee shots went at right angles into the car park something should have been said. It’s all about making money! Driving down streets between green and next tee was a bit strange. The 16th is a fantastic hole but not sure the other 17 make this one hole worth it

Trym Anderson 2019-06-17
Good course,but the greenkeper should wonder how he place the flag sometimes, so bad on 2 holes when the flag is downhill

Trym Anderson 2019-06-11
Nice course,good greens

Phil Lynch 2019-06-04
Great course

Peter Tholen 2019-06-02
Great course, good condition, shame there’s such limited practice facilities

Chris 2019-05-30
One of the best golf courses I've played. Fantastic!

Adrien Vancostenoble 2019-05-29

Kevin Walker 2019-05-28

John J Gosney 2019-05-27
A really nice course presented in great condition. Great facilities. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Bryan Dick 2019-05-27
Very very good again. Clubhouse the best we visit. Courses very busy but in great condition.

Simon Coe 2019-05-25
Course was excellent only downside was the number of unrepaired pitchmarks, especially as we teed off at 7am.

Ditlef Faye 2019-05-20
Lovely course - nice playing partners. Miss a good driving range at Vale do Lobo

Tony Coombs 2019-05-14
Single track course that has lob on both sides therefore requires some straight hitting off the tee. Tees, fairways and greens in great condition. The strong breeze made the round interesting, especially the 'million hole in one' where I upped club by 4 to the centre of the green due to the gusting conditions. Overall a tough place to score but a good challenge.

Ian Green 2019-05-14
The setting, club facilities and course were superb, I would recommend this course and complex to any golfer.

Barry Emery 2019-05-13
Course in good condition as always. Greens were a little slow but to be expected during twilight round

Ian Hudson 2019-05-12
Course in stunning condition

Pat Connellan 2019-05-07
Very good golf course, very tough driving holes. Greens very good

Greg Reynolds 2019-05-05
A fantastic course in a beautiful setting which although challenging is very playable for all handicaps

Darren Gatward 2019-05-03
Excellent condition, pace of play was very good

Bonin 2019-04-30
Excellent course in very good condition but Driving Range clearly inacceptable for such 2 golf courses (Océan & royal). You can only hit 9 iron maximum !! Just insane

David Lilley 2019-04-16
Stunning course. Tight in places with small greens.

Owen O'Sullivan 2019-04-08
Course was excellent, staff good. Not having electric caddy cars was a disappointment.

Jackie Robinson 2019-04-06
Most enjoyable Set off at 3.20 and arrived back at 7.30 when still light. Only a small rain shower!

Graham Sharp 2019-04-03
Coarse was good but i feel overpriced especially with no Buggy or even some practice balls included

Stéphane Jacquemont 2019-04-02
Beautiful golf Good rate I recommend

Neil McIlwraith 2019-04-02
Excellent condition.

Giorgio 2019-02-20
Golf course ok, but slow play in front of us.

PHILIP REEKS 2019-02-19
It’s not cheap but I thought it was excellent value. Despite rain the course was so pristine, true and just felt majestic. The clubhouse is also first class and I found everyone to be welcoming and friendly.

McGahey 2019-02-02
Fantastic golf courses

Ben Jones 2019-01-29
Excellent course in first class conditions, greens like glass. Great fun.

Nick Fry 2019-01-20
Good condition overall especially Greens. Improved since last visit in October. Tight course well layed out.

Bolton David 2018-10-25
Once again Superb

westley macey 2018-10-19
The course was in great condition and has a wonderful layout staff were all pleasant and helpful one of my favourite courses

Jose Guerra 2018-10-16
Excellent, staff very courteous, helpful and accommodating. The golf course was in very good shape. Don’t be deceived by the first three holes which seem very blah. The rest of the course was great. The fifteenth and especially the sixteenth hole was breathtaking.

Brian gale 2018-10-16
Enjoyed vale do lobo very much.royal course not as good condition as ocean but service very good

Johan Ekesioo 2018-10-08
Good course but not comparable to Ocean. I always use trolleys and a club/course of this standard/price should have upgraded to 3 wheel trolleys instead of old 2 wheelers.

Serge Levitan 2018-10-08
very good course

Bill Leach 2018-10-03
We loved the Royal course and all commented what a beautiful house it was. Very nice bar and club area too.

Chris Smith 2018-10-01
What a complex, thoroughly enjoyed amazing experience

Terje Edvardsen 2018-09-26

Stuart Massey 2018-09-18
All went very smooth also understood that we wanted to play in a 2...Bit slow on the back nine

Roy G. Jack 2018-09-11
Course was not in as good condition as previous years but still enjoyable.

Wayne Pontin 2018-08-12

Victor 2018-07-19
All right

Chris Malone 2018-07-19
Course in fantastic condition, one or two pitchmarks but the greens were very good, no bobbles all day. As always here, the staff were very friendly. Definitely be back

Barry McNally 2018-07-15
Very happy with course condition

Liz Scully 2018-07-14
Great course. In good condition.

Gordon Livingston 2018-07-06
Always very overplayed and consequently too slow..... more marshalling required!!

Tim Sale 2018-07-05
Great round of golf at Vale Do Lobo.

jonathan thomson 2018-06-30
Course was excellent. The condition fantastic, all staff brilliant a really enjoyable round I will be back as soon as possible, only criticism is the driving range you can’t hit more than a 9 iron

David Walton 2018-06-24
Nice golf coutse and well kept

Glyn Richards 2018-06-18
Great course in excellent condition and facilities

Olivier van Wulfften Palthe 2018-06-14

Simon D Turner 2018-06-07
The whole course was in superb condition. Great day of golf.

Sue McKinley 2018-06-03
Very enjoyable especially the 16th which was a great experience!

Jean-Guy Hottiaux 2018-06-01
Beautiful course. Some holes require a straight driver and the 15 is the best one.

Andrew Rice-Tucker 2018-05-28
Well looked after courses and service very good.

Paul Mylet 2018-05-28
Loved the course and the layout just a bit long between tee and green as we used trollies

Alan Miller 2018-05-28
Our first day and we were tired , very long between tee and green but a great test of all your golf skills and would love to play again

Steve Threader 2018-05-20
Course was in good shape and enjoyable although the round was extremely slow and the on course staff didn't seem to be able to improve the pace of play.

Atle Conradsen 2018-05-18
Everything went perfectly. Great course

James Ridgway 2018-05-17
Always stay here for food but it's very over priced!

Mike Lee 2018-05-08
Played here a lot, always a good golfing experience

Peter Lovenholm 2018-05-07
Great course!

Tom Hainsworth 2018-05-01
first class

Jamie Hughes 2018-04-30
Fabulous course in perfect condition

Jonathan O'Neill 2018-04-29
Only negatives-some tees were not flat and the pace of play was slow If they insist on asking your handicaps they should not allow high handicap players on the course at it slows the pace right down

Robert Butler 2018-04-27
Very good

Joe Hennelly 2018-04-23
We had a fantastic day. Beautiful course. Excellent friendly staff

John newman 2018-04-21
Great course what I expected good condition

Delaume Catherine 2018-04-18
Fabulous golf course and services. Upstanding fairways. We were not allowed to start before our tee time as in Penina, but we had enough time, even without buggies, to play the whole course before sunset.

Peter Watson 2018-04-17
The course is in excellent condition considering the recent wet weather. A buggy is recommended as there is some distance between some of the greens and tees

Conor Kelly 2018-04-16
Weather was very poor on arrival and the reception staff were very friendly and pushed our tee time back 2 hours. Food was v good in the restaurant and staff are very friendly. Played the Ocean course on Wednesday and Royal course on Thursday. The round on Thursday was very slow. We had a 3 ball. Would always recommend playing in a 4 ball if its busy. All round this is a fantastic venue. In my opinion the Royal is far superior to the Ocean course. We will be back again.

Brian Filler 2018-04-16
very good! although it was only the second day of opening after maintenance the greens were in good condition

Luc Primeau 2018-03-19
Superbe ! Course difficult but in perfect shape even if it was raining a lot.

Karin Schirocki 2018-03-16
abwechslungsreich, super gepflegt, tolle Fairways und Grüns. Spektakulär sicherlich Loch 16. Wenn wir uns zwischen dem Royal und dem Ocean entscheiden müssten würden wir allerdingst den Ocean spielen. Aber eigentlich nehmen sich beide Plätze nicht wirklich viel.

Whittal Williams 2018-03-12
Some excellent holes but the course looses atmosphere because it is so spread out.

kevin birchall 2018-03-12
the experience was very pleasant with staff a great help

Ken Castle 2018-03-10
I always love this course, I have played it a dozen times or more, and there remain holes on it I have still to solve! (and that does not include the signature 16th!)

Nick Fry 2018-03-09
Great course in good condition

Ian Hunt 2018-03-09
Fabulous experience, superb customer experience, lovely food. The course was in exceptional condition, pace of play was good, marshals were discrete but on it in terms of maintaining the pace of play. A memorable day's golf.

Andrew Stevenson 2018-03-08
Lovely course and I played early. Trouble was that I was always with greens staff on machines: sometimes three machines on my hole. As a result it spoiled my round I am afraid.

Dr. Volker Müller 2018-03-07
The course is in a very good condition. Fast greens- great! The stuff at the desk was friendly and politely. Unfortunately we'd a slow 4Ball flight in front ( took nearly 2h to play 6 holes ). No marshal around. .

Thomas Wicker 2018-03-05
The signature hole is the green fee worth, perfect greens and fairways , I prefer royal than ocean course

Horst Hubig 2018-03-05
Es war alles in Ordnung Bestens

Gary Cumbers 2018-03-04
Well organised, curtious staff, everything ran smoothly. Fantastic service.

Anthony Keenan 2018-03-03
Absolutely fantastic

Robert Wilcox 2018-03-02
Excellent service a pleasant experience.

W A Mead 2018-02-28
After the misery of Ocean the Royal was an experience in a good way.

Mike 2018-02-24
Superb as always

Lesley Hitchcock 2018-02-23
Everything was just fine thank you. Course lovely, service at club house good.

Scholten 2018-02-20
great course with wonderful greens and views.

Axel Heuser 2018-02-19
Auffallend ist das gepflegte dichte Fairway, das auf eine Fairwaybewässerung hinweist. Leider sehen sich immer wieder Golfer außerstande, Divots wieder einzusetzen. Die Grüns sind ebenfalls gut gepflegt. Das Puttinggrün hatte allerdings nichts mit den schnellen Grüns auf der Runde gemein. Diejenigen Golfer, die auf ein Buggy verzichten, müssen eine gute Kondition haben. Die Topographie des Platzes weißt einige Steigungen auf. Die Sanitäranlagen sind auf dem neusten Stand, so dass auch das Duschen zum Genuss wird.

Jan Sklepek 2018-02-17
Sehr gut gepflegter Golfplatz, Bahn 16 ist einmalig.

Georg Fricke 2018-02-14
This Court is In a very good condition, but it was to hard to play for us

Frank Blake 2018-02-08
Excellent experience and venue.

Timo Salomaa 2018-01-19
This is excellent course

Steve Bassi 2018-01-15
Good course, great condition

Jan Sklepek 2018-01-05
Der Golfplatz war wie immer im perfekten Zustand, das Personal im Büro sehr hilfsbereit.

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2018-01-04
Vale do Lobo Royal zählt unseres Erachtens zu den schönsten Gofplätzen an der Algarve. Besonders beeindruckend ist das berühmte Loch 16 mit dem fantastischen Blick und der golferischen Herausforderung. Lediglich die zum Teil langen Wege zwischen den Löchern sind nachteilig.

John Graham 2017-12-31
course was in good order

William Forrest 2017-12-19
Did not enjoy this course. Condition was poor.

Martin Georg Hilke 2017-12-13
Friendly staff, courses welk prepared, fast greens

Steven Dobson 2017-12-05
Excellent condition.

William Hamilton 2017-12-02
Lovely course in excellent condition. Straight, accurate tee shots are required.

Keith Hall 2017-11-28
Great course, good condition

Regina Paetzke 2017-11-26
Except for the 16th hole not really exciting

Gordon Reid 2017-11-21
Yes lovely course and nice and quiet

Trevor Ward 2017-11-18
Another great day with lovely weather and company, followed by drinks with everyone at Chez Carlos Restaurant , many thanks again

John Deveney 2017-11-14
I have always said I would never return to this place due to the attitude of the staff, we only came back because one of our party had not played here before. Pleasantly surprised by what few staff we met, greatly improved attitude or did we get lucky? Course as good as ever, may even return again or maybe that would be tempting fate.

Wilson Pitt 2017-11-11
Great course for all range of handicaps

Rainer Albath 2017-11-10
Course in very Golf Condition

Marc Vandeplas 2017-11-05
truly wonderful. We got the first twighlight green fee and still managed to complete the 18 holes while only paying half the price. The Royal course is somehow easier than the Ocean but the 16th hole is worth waiting for.

Aidan Foley 2017-10-30
10/ us out in daylight with hour change.fab course.I got injured on course and all staff looked after me 100%.Please thank them for leg injury 5.00 yesterday Aidan Foley

Adam Gutteridge 2017-10-18
Course in generally good condition, wet underfoot but to be expected given the overnight rain. Greens fast & true and well maintained all round

Michael Davies 2017-10-14

Adrian Pitt 2017-10-08
Lovely golf course and facilities. Staff were friendly

Jimmy Rogers 2017-10-08
The ranger was very good this year. Very active. Good to see

John Harte 2017-10-04
Very good.

Mark Clifford 2017-10-02
Fine location very enjoyable

Glyn Richards 2017-09-30
You will not play a better Course and the 16th, what can I say fantastic challenge

Kenny McDonald 2017-09-19
great golf course

Neil Turner 2017-09-18
Fantastic golf course - always in good condition. Always good to play the famous par 3 16th.

andrew mccready 2017-09-11

Jon Mycek 2017-08-23
Lovely course with some great holes.

Mark Vaughan 2017-08-14
As usual great course and club house.

great course

Richard Coggins 2017-07-14
Everything was just fine

Liz Scully 2017-07-08
Great course in excellent condition. Terrific group of players today.

Karen young 2017-07-03
My favourite.

Darren Howlett 2017-07-03
I love the whole Vale Do Lobo experience including sitting outside Spikes but I find this course nothing special other than the amazing 16th which everybody who plays golf knows about! Holes 14 and 15 get you in the mood...

Brendan Collins 2017-06-27
Very good to excellent course. Fantastic clubhouse and restaurant facility for the Vale do Lobo courses.

Jean-Guy HOTTIAUX 2017-06-17
Beautiful course. A must do once in Algarve.

Greg Hall 2017-06-15
Excellent, very enjoyable

Gillian mcleod 2017-06-13
Loved this course too. Can't pick between this one and Ocean. Will play it again.

Maurice Rogers 2017-05-30

Dave Thompson 2017-05-27
What a supper course well worth playing. Cannot understand why I left it until this year having played in the Algarve for some years. Cannot wait to play it again.

Peter Lamont 2017-05-26
Most enjoyable course. 1st time playing there and won't be our last. Very friendly staff and course was in superb condition.

Paul Pheby 2017-05-24
Vale do Lobo delivers a fine golfing experience throughout. Twilight round is great value and both courses are in fabulous condition

Graham Johnson 2017-05-17
Joy to play

Bobinski 2017-05-16

Peter Sandtorv 2017-05-09
Fantastic fairways this year

Benny Talt 2017-04-19
This course was excellent not as challenging as the Ocean Course but again fairways good and greens fast. 9/10

Sarah 2017-04-15
Compared with the other courses this was our least favourite

Michael Bryan 2017-04-09
The prettier course, teed off on time and round in just over 4 hours which was splendid.

Lenni Vainio 2017-04-09
Super ! Very very good place. Hole number 16 is awesome !!

Micheline Leclerc 2017-04-06
the best fantastic golf course of all...10 out of 10

Britta Ries 2017-04-06
Also very good. It's recommended to take a buggy due to long course and long ways between holes.

G.J.T. Schuurman 2017-04-06
Nice course but we had bad weather, so it was a bit swampy on several holes. No driving range.

Janice Carruthers 2017-04-04
Excellent course in great condition.

Alex Mcghee 2017-03-27
Best course we played, fantastic.

Ken Castle 2017-03-11
Always have liked this course, if you are off your game it kills you, and there are still holes on it that after a dozen tries, I have yet to play well! Quick greens, which I like, but the fringes/first cut are much springier than in the UK, making it v difficult to get reliable contact.

Axel Heuser 2017-03-08
I prefer more this course than the Ocean course. It is a superb course, the signature hole is the par-3, hitting over cliffs. The fairways are ondulated und bride enough.

William Black 2017-03-07
Good but perhaps too testing for us.

Terry Bird 2017-03-05

Trevor Swift 2017-03-05
Only issue was that as we booked as a 2 ball we were paired with two others at Val do Lobo. This turned out to be an 80 year old couple, so progress was frustrating and slow. The course really ought make an effort to join together similar ability golfers

Doug Smith 2017-03-01
Always a pleasure to play at Val do Lobo. From the great reception at the check in to the assistance from the starters etc. The Royal course was in pretty good condition, and the greens were true and fast enough without being too fast. Some of the Tee grounds could be better but that's a small issue. A great day out.

Howard L Verrill 2017-02-28
Immaculate golf course. Greens, rough, fairways, bunkers. Tip to shape. Beautiful course to play. I had a great day there,

Rob Hollis 2017-02-27
Great course. Buggies and trollies greatly overpriced

Tom Broodbakker 2017-02-19
Not a very special course. Too much distance between the holes and sometimes poorly direction given between the holes

Doug Smith 2017-01-22
The Royal at Vale do Lobo is a very interesting course, winding through the Vale do Lobo estate. Yesterday the course was in very good condition but the greens were lightening fast which suited some but not everyone. Always made welcome here. Try it.

Everything OK

The tougher of the 2 courses but also suffering slightly from the weather and the volume of play. Only irritation is that we were a 6 and the club treated us as a 4 and a 2 and put others (strangers) out with us. Other than that the staff were excellent.

Really liked the course and played there twice; the staff there were very nice and the clubhouse food menu was lovely.

Buggies are too expensive.

Neal Rea 2016-10-28
Breathtaking, looking forward to playing again.

Liam Kearney 2016-10-25
Val do Lobo Royal was as usual in great condition and the group enjoyed it immensely. The whole ambience of the clubhouse area, for lunch, was enjoyed by all.

Matthew Campbell 2016-10-22
Good, challenging track. Some tough golf holes after a gentle start.

It can be very slow.

Paul Oates 2016-09-09
Great course and facilities. Layout of the course and views were stunning.

Doug Smith 2016-08-09
The general condition of the course was good. The greens were true and in good condition. It was an extremely hot day but we only saw the comfort/bar buggy twice. Shame about latest erosion of the cliffs around the 16th tee. Overall a good experience.

Gareth Davies 2016-08-08
Excellent condition and some wonderful challenging holes

Jon Burrows 2016-08-08
Excellent all round golf experience. Clubhouse, staff and course were all excellent

Julie Pointer 2016-07-20
Lovely course. Hired golf clubs, which were not in the best of condition, which we mentioned to the pro shop. Next time we will take our own!

Andrew Palmer 2016-07-04
Excellent course, however buggies could do with course navigation aid.

Darren Howlett 2016-06-30
Course is ok, 16th is a great talking point especially if you have ''newbies'' in the group! We love to play it as we stay in Vale do Lobo and the clubhouse is a great spot for drinks and food post round. One of my favourite places in the world!

As with the ocean course brilliant with some spectacular and daunting holes, we all loved the experience , and will do our very best to return

Gavin Dillon-Read 2016-06-17
Honestly sensational, everything I wanted it to be. Beautiful place to play golf

Alain COSTE 2016-06-13
Nous avons énormément apprécié ce parcours ( l'Océan) accueil et conditions très agréables; Le parcours est d'une beauté magnifique et le tracé sélectif mais d'une recherche technique extrème. Vue sur l'océan paradisiaque; de la grande classe. Souvenir inoubliable, à notre grand bonheur

Trevor Swift 2016-06-04
Good course, but buggy definitely required

The best course i have ever played

Gary Walsh 2016-05-10
Good service - good course - need to improve second and third holesx to be a great course

Raymond Chapman 2016-05-02

Anthony Beardsley 2016-03-18
Very good course. Service excellent too. Probably the best course I have ever played

Rob Thomas 2016-03-18
As above but prefer the Ocean course as it is less technically demanding and more scenic.

Hermann Heddens 2016-02-15
Alles gut, super gepflegt.

Russell Cooper 2016-02-05
We played VdL twice and it was good. The first round was soured by our tee time being delayed by two hours and we felt that the staff, especially at reception, were not exactly apologetic. Tee Times were extremely apologetic, and sorted us out complimentary buggies for our next two rounds - something that we felt the course should have offered. We enjoyed the Royal Course but felt that the Ocean was better.

Great Course (and clubhouse) in good condition despite recent wet weather, famous signature hole, with a number of others nearly as good, already looking forward to the next time!

Stephanie Brown 2015-10-23
Lovely course

Frank Becker 2015-10-23
Everything ok but the rental price for a trolley is too expensive (9 € per round)
