Practice facilities....it always helps to warm up Conditions and layout 9/10 Hospitality 8/10 19th hole is a great lay out to enjoy the club house. Nevadabob store great selection but limited course logos
Great layout, is fun, and challenging, would definitely want to go back. The starter and staff were nice and friendly.
Pleasant course - not sure it’s great value for money. Clubhouse great
Very tight fairways, good greens but very disjointed layout.
Excellent course in excellent condition.
Greens very poor especially the front nine.
Played it loads and never disapoints
Condition of the greens on the royal course compared to the ocean we're in terrible condition for those that take golf seriously.
Greens on front 9 were in poor condition. On the back 9 they were as they should be
Shockingly bad. Poor tees poor greens and very bad bunkers. The worst I have seen it. Not worth the money.
Amazing assistance and eve thing went perfectly
course in good condition
17 holes with narrow fairways between homes, parking lots, streets and one spectacular ocean par 3. Well manicured golf course but soggy slow greens. Some construction activity on a couple of holes, but workers are very respectful of the players. Oh yes, lets not forget crazy rules: women also have to wear collared shirts and you cannot play from the black "member" tees - chose forward yellows ir champion whites. Score cards do not have course rating, so you cannot calculate
Great customer experience. Really bad driving range. Course conditions: 7/10. Course experience: 7/10, disappointed by all the gardeners transiting / noise. Course: 8/10 (front 9 really boring, back 9 amazing)
Greens of both Roayl and Ocean were tyned sanded. Also fairway had several GUR areas. VdL should consider discounts in those circumstances. Also quality of bunkers varied a lot throughout the holes. Plus point: the renovated tee boxes on Royal are a big improvement.
Club was lovely, was working on the course so greens could have been better
Really good - played on the 1st day having just stepped off the plane. A fair test & a good opening round
The course was not in good condition- greens covered in massive pitch marks, etc. they also were sanding the tee boxes, so had to scrape them clean!
Great course - experience spoiled a little by slow play
We arrived at reception and was told that our 3pm tee time didn’t have a buggy in our booking but they changed the booking to 2:50 so that we could have a buggy at no extra cost
Nice course / decent condition. First 4 holes a bit average but gets much better Service a bit mixed with the car park full
Good course, a bit untidy in places
Enjoyable course, but too many road crossings
Beautiful course excellent booking experience. Would like to see an offer with golf cart / buggy included as this was an extra €60!
Always a pleasure to play this course
Fantastic Arrived early and starter very accommodating to get us off early
Great course but still don’t understand why Vale Da Lobo force players to make up 4 balls. Having complete strangers join us today wasn’t great and the other couple weren’t happy about it either.
Great course as usual Sham they we’re working on the practice putting green with heavy machinery whilst we were eating lunch
Course in great condition. As always. Disappointed that no ice to be had for drinks compartment on buggies. There were small bottles of water supplied in the compartment but were too warm, almost hot, to enjoy. I understand the ice machine has been broken for around 2 months. How can a business as high end as Val do Lobo not purchased a new machine. The golf was uncomfortable due to not having suitable chilled drinks. We were all grateful that the caddy cart had chilled drinks when we were lucky enough to come across it on the course.
Couple of the tees need flattening but otherwise first class
Course in excellent condition. Some of Cart paths in need of repair. Staff very friendly . Disappointing service after round. Waited for 15 mins for someone to come & serve us with food & drink - gave up & went back to our hotel
Everything about the place is class, lovely conditions, clubhouse and food
Good golf course, well maintained
Always a favourite and never disappoints. Good condition seemed quite quiet compared to previous trips our 3 4 balls completed in less than 4 hours. Great atmosphere in the bar restaurant. A must play experience
Lovely course in great condition
Well our tee time was supposed to be 11.30 but they had it down at 11.40… and there were 3 fourballs and our 2 ball all booked at the same time!! Anyway we were slotted in between people for our 5 hour round… so difficult to keep your concentration.
Not as beautyful as the ocean course. Challenging holes at the cost with very strong wind.
Lovely course and condition excellent
Fabulous course in excellent condition. Fairways & greens were top class. Buggies were cheaper than Dom Pedro courses and a bottle of water in them. Marshals were out and about and kept the pace of play flowing. Excellent buggy bar service. Nice clubhouse.
Unbelievable place everyone very friendly and helpful
I didn't play this one myself but the eight who played it enjoyed it
Beautiful golf course, with of course the iconic 16th. Fairways were great but greens bumpy and fluffy, disappointing. Service however was great. round took 5.25 hours !
Very enjoyable round of golf. Course was in great condition. I was first out so no slow play to deal with and no need to repair others pitch marks. I had never played Royal before but found it a good challenge and interesting without any of those squeezed in/ made up holes you often find. Playing off Yellow it isn’t the longest but it does reward good play. Would thoroughly recommend. Excellent friendly and helpful staff and also maintenance team around the course.
That the course was in a good condition. Greens were nice . As usual the service was excellent.
Course in good condition but it all feels a bit like a municipal course. Too noisy and homes encroach too much
Issue with the transfer turning up late, once we phoned they arranged something swiftly but it was 35 mins after scheduled time which meant we had to get ready straight away once we were there
Very good condition
Perfect condition , Professional, Ranger on Course , very Friendly
Course was in fantastic condition
Fabulous golf course in excellent condition
Superb round of Golf
Once again vale de lobo delivered on hospitality and the courses.
Marcel M. Hopman
Vale do Lobo Royal always top!
/Royal is the better of the two..would not play ocean again, hole 3 is a nightmare with players all over the place and also dangerous
Always a good experience. Greens excellent
Très efficace avec des prix concurrentiels. - **- Very efficient with competitive prices.
great staff, beautiful golf course
See comment with vae do lobo ocean
Parfait avec en plus un chat qui fonctionne avec une intervenante efficace et très gentille. -**- Perfect with the added bonus of a working chat with an efficient and very friendly speaker.
Played Vale do lobo royal again today and it gets even better each time you play it. Lovely course some great holes. The 16th is one of the best par 3's I have ever played. Fantastic time had .
Lovely course well presented
Played Vale do lobo ocean and Royal. Fabulous courses. A huge difference from penina which was a disgrace for the price paid.
Very good course, excellent facilities. 16th as good as hoped.
Vacances sans problèmes, Le service de Teetimes est parfait,efficacité et prix bas. -**- Trouble free holiday, Teetimes service is perfect, efficient and low cost.
Le service est toujours aussi agréable, les gens sont accueillants et très gentil. Pour ce qui du terrain, si vous décidez d'aller jouer à Vale Do Lobo, je dirais de jouer le terrain Océan. Puisque, le terrain est en meilleur condition que le Royal. Le Royal est présentement plus sec et certaines portions un peu abimés. -**- The service is always so pleasant, the people are welcoming and very nice. As for the pitch, if you decide to go and play at Vale Do Lobo, I would say to play the Ocean pitch. Since, the field is in better condition than the Royal. The Royal is currently drier and some parts are a bit damaged.
Course was not in as good a condition as previous years. Service in clubhouse bar was poor. Staff not well trained. Older man who we presume is the bar manager is very unfriendly , several of our group mentioned how unwelcoming the atmosphere was.
Frosty greeting at check in could not find booking. Buggy cost increased from quote given , starter was excellent and friendly, course was not at its best having played here a lot it was not at its. Previous standard
Great golf course and pace of play was excellent
very good, food was excellent
course was brilliant
Course in great condition. Greens slick and fast. Some tee areas suffering but nothing too bad to affect anything. Easy booking in procedure. No problems.
Val de Lobo is a lovely resort we played Royal this time and it was a bit scruffy. Very slow at nearly 5 hours too. Given the choice I’d always choose Ocean.
Parcours très touristique, beaucoup de monde. -**- Very touristy route, lots of people.
great course, very good service over all
lOVELY WEATHER.. LOVELY GOLF COURSE... EVERYONE ENJOYED THE DAY.
It was too busy. Took way too long to dob18 holes. Had to want long on every hole. Too many unrepaired pitching marks on the green
Still one of our favourite courses, but greens were scruffier than normal - looked a bit overplayed.
Had a brilliant day staff friendly and helpful and golf course was unbelievable ????
Love the place.
excellent as always
Excellent golf course
Parcours au top! Juste magnifique. Accueil professionnel, joli ressort.
Great round this morning - course pretty clear
Course in good condition, a difficult knock especially that 16th into the wind. Has suffered some tree damage from fires by the look of it.
Amazing course with beautiful views. Well kept course. Highly recommended
Much better service than 2 days ago. Staff and greenkeepers were much more friendlier. Also the condition of the fairways and greens were much better although the greens were sanded. The only negative point were the sandwiches.
Perfect conditions and a very fair course. Some teeboxes under repair. Played in 4Group 4,5 hour without traffic jam. So nearly a perfect and relaxed round.
One of the most beautiful courses we have ever played.
Nice course , good condition , everyone liked it and would play again. Need more electric trolleys for those that want to walk.
Beautiful golf course in excellent condition. Can't fault anything from arriving to departing.
We were on a twilight price and even teed off on the 1st early, but we ended up playing 16th in the dark and missing 17th and 18th entirely. Yet again the Algarve courses are packing too many people in and ruining the experience as the wait is too long for almost every shot. I heard several times during our holiday that a round should be 4 hours 20 minutes. That is a ridiculous time for a game of golf for 4 people. I can do it at my local club in 3 hours 30 minutes. There is never any check on a player's handicap, not their etiquette round the green. We saw a number of players who clearly were not good enough to play these courses. We have got to the point where we won't be coming to the Algarve again, as the price is now just ridiculous and the experience is ruined by really slow play.
Great course, professional service and great help from teetimes!
Clubhouse facilities and food outstanding. Lack of driving range facilities surprising for a course like this. Course is good but maybe a little below the standard of the quinta courses apart from the 15th and 16th holes which are absolutely stunning.
Good as ever
A bit worn out
Everything good except I struggle to find my password for my membership of teetimes
Challenging but enjoyable course. Greens in great condition. The ocean side holes are spectacular.
Course in great condition greens were fast and true
TeeTimes were very helpful when two of our party did not make it from the UK for health reasons they got me a full refund from the golf course with just two days notice. The Royal at Vale do Lobo was majestic as ever and in very good condition, with just a slight quibble about the greens not being quite the same speed. Maybe they were part way through mowing them.
Very pleasant lunch, check in very easy. Everyone very pleasant. Course in ok condition
Fantastic course, friendly staff. Definitely will return.
Everything worked well. Staff helpful and friendly. Course good
Mr Martin Cox
Royal golf course ..first class. The hire of clubs was handled perfectly by your partners. Clubhouse service was slow but it is a busy bar/restaurant so understandable.All in all a very good experience for me and my family- thank you for your help
Not as good as the Ocean. A lot of wild fire damage and many trees either being cut down or marked to come down so will not be the same for very many years. Still some very nice holes though.
Never fails to deliver. I'd pay the Green Fee for the 16th alone.
Had a great time, Wonderfully maintained course.
The course has begun to look tired
#17 provisonal green - boaring
Decent condition and greens were good
Great course, pristine, thoroughly enjoyed
Great experience! Loved the course, and the staff is very professional and friendly. Had good luck on the 16th, scored a bogey to remember.
Enjoyable course in good condition. Pleasant and numerous ground staff.
Staff helpful & friendly
Course was ok not as enjoyable as the Ocean. Staff friendly enough but room for improvement.
Totally enjoyable as usual. Thank you
Enjoyable course , some tricky holes
Roberto S Carvalho
Excellent experience, beautiful golf course, highly recommended
Very beautiful course and catering services. The cost of hiring clubs is too high.
Vale do Lobo Royal Course was in a fantastic condition, greens were true, fairways mostly immaculate. We did find it confusing on a couple of holes finding our way to the next hole. We were told we had to have a buggy but saw some player on the course with trolleys. The club house is very modern. Reception was not that friendly but all the rest were extremely helpful. Pricey to play the course but we felt it was worth it. Tried to book direct and very few tee times available so booked with teetimes.pt with no problem at all.
Pity the Ocean was closed for the day but the Royal was a good course all the same. Greens were decent , some fairways could have been better maintained, and pathways between holes need attention. Tees were disappointing as hardly any of them were level which is unusual !. Great clubhouse area and ambiance and food afterwards. All in a good experience but the worst of the 3 courses we played this week. Old Course and Laranjal both far better. Laranjal in particular so.
An old favourite
lovely course and the 16th hole is fabulous. Lots of work going on at the course on footpaths etc. You need a buggy as you are driving through some villas and roads etc.
Ralph van den Boogaard
I was teamed up with a two ball as I was on my own, however, I was surprised there are no requirements for handicapp certa to play the course. I was teamed up with someone who had obviously not played more tha a couple of rounds of golf in his life. He lost c.12 balls in 18 holes, and it took us 4.5 hours to.play 18 holes!
Always a good course
Surprisingly quiet but good as ever
Excellent course and brilliant service
Good greens and fairways, first time on a very nice course. Lots of maintainence going but it is summer so not unexpected
A great course, one of the very best on the algarve. After playing both courses at Vale do lobo a few times now I prefer the ocean course. Round was a tad slow as was very busy the day I played.
Excellent course in top condition. Fabulous
Course slow no Marshall’s no drinks cart painfully slow service in the bar area .
Great course, staff very helpful and bar prices not over the too
From the moment we arrived we were treated very well and all our requests were met with a smile 8 of us enjoyed an excellent dinner after our round. Only negative was following two young guys who really shouldn’t been allowed on the course and had no knowledge of golf etiquette.
Very enjoyable golf round. Found the course to be in good condition with everything organised and managed in a professional manner. The only negative is that my wife and I were paired up in a four-ball with 2 members of a visiting party of 6 low handicapper’s who had asked to play in 2 groups of threes. They were not happy with the arrangement of having to play with us and this detracted from the enjoyment, at least initially. Suspect this may happen quite often.
Very professional and good quality course and staff well trained ????
Great course in excellent condition, everyone really enjoyed it.
Fabulous from start to finish. We had a ball!!
Great condition. Reasonable pace and great staff.
Course conditions excellent, extremely friendly staff in the complex and out on the course
Speed of play was good, course in reasonable condition, not as good as the ocean course. Bunkers were varied and some very poor with little or no sand.
Course in good condition Enjoyable
très beau golf, fairways magnifiques English version - very nice golf course, beautiful fairways
Course good. Bunkers a bit wet and heavy but we played early
Good as usual.
Jon Erik Børresen
Bunkers Are not good! The service in the restaurant is not good!
Course rather normal considering the amount of rain. Service was fine.
Excellent welcome, service and course
By far the best facility we played. Course condition was excellent, course was beautiful and challenging, staff were very friendly and we didn't get paired up with another two-ball. Perfect. Twilight range is great value for money. Also there was a reduced rate for the golf buggy along with the Twilight rate, which means they are not obsessed with ripping golfers off at any opportunity.
We really liked the Royal Course. It was in great condition and the greens were fast with very few ball marks. Pace of play was good and all the staff were very helpful.
Beautiful and challenging course. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Vale do Lobo Ryal was very good. Best conditioned golf course we had played so far. Greens were smooth and a good speed. Variety of holes and elevation change. Only a couple holes next to the ocean but the famous 16th lived up to its billing but unfortunately bogged down by slow play which was a theme for the golf course. We would recommend the Royal and would play here again
Fast, efficient and friendly
Fabulous course and great staff.
The course is nice to play and the signature hole #16 really beautiful. Due to maintenance work on holes 3 and 4 the Next tee -signage was confusing. The flag pole on 5th should be taller since the green and pin position is not easily see. But overall positive experience.
Wayne Gary Malouin
Val Do Lobo is one of my favorite golf courses. It is well maintained and managed
Superb condition and great service
Great service and the course was immaculate
Miguel Paredes Garcia
The course was in excellent condition, very well maintained and a pleasure to putt on greens that run so true.
everything was great
everyone and everything about Vale do lobo was first class...the Royal was in excellent condition. Everyone of us would have no hesitation in going back.
Playing this golf course as the sun sets was just amazing.
Lovely friendly and very professional
Delivered to expectations, all staff excellent
I had a great day at Vale do Lobo. The course played very well and the staff were very courteous. I will definitely be coming back.
All good! Nice and professional crew and office staff. The golf course was in a good shape.
I love this course but yet to conquer can play it time and time again -weather and pin placements today in the wind as a real challenge
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
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.
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.
Perfect service, very easy and uncomplicated. Thank you!
Gerard van Ierland
The Course was not that what we expected. TeeTimes did a great job !!!! Thanks Boas Festas for you all
Superbe parcours, je recommande
Great day staff all very helpful
Greens hollow tined.
Royal course is so funny
Great course. In great condition. Played at 8am- not busy, no hold ups. Completed the round in 3.5 hours.
Perfect course but poor service in the restaurant
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.
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.
Service excellent, facilities excellent, course condition a little scruffy in places certainly compared to QdLago N,S and Laranjal
Very nice ????????????
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.
excellent check in , friendly staff, excellent tee boxes, fairways and greens
Very straight forward check in and the bar staff were helpful getting us some breakfast before we teed off.
Lovely picturesque course and nice club house
Nice course, fast greens, well maintained fairways. Friendly staff. We teed off at 7:50 and the course was ours: 3 hours 20 min.
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.
Very good course
Course in good condition and starter very helpful
Roy G. Jack
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.
The course was untidy and the greens were covered in unrepaired pitch marks. There are much better courses in the area
Excellent day of golf followed by a nice lunch. Great service all day
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
Nice Course good restaurang
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.
It was in great condition today & the greens held very well.
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 !
Very enjoyable, the signature 16th hole is breathtaking -
Great course. All went very well
One of my all time favourite courses that it feels a true privilege to play as everything about it is just quality
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!
In good condition, Great Service, Beautiful venue.
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
A spectacular course, let down by some scruffy greens.
Nice course some stunning holes.
Lovely Signature Hole but felt the rest of the course wasn't great but still a nice course to play
Nice course, starter Marshall very pleasant but, too busy which reflected on the slow service after the golf.
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.
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
Course in a good shape, check in in particular under corona condition well organised, never the less very poor driving range
Enjoyable round of golf although the course was not in as good a condition as The Ocean
A great course with a super setting. Some easy holes combined with some really challenging ones. A great overall experience
Very efficient from booking in to starter etc. Greens poor condition
Nice day beautiful golf course Everything’s fine
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
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.
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
Great golf but very difficult to park my car and it is not possible to use drivers and woods at the driving range.
Really enjoyed the course. It was in great condition.
Adrian Fraser Jones
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 .
It was a good experience. Nice and helpfull staff. We could start one hour prior of our teetime which we liked pretty much!
THEW LADS HAVE HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE
Very nice course, thoroughly enjoyed. Shop wasn’t open as it was Sunday
Great course in fantastic condition, staff all helpful, good value
Very enjoyable day. Cart tracks a bit bumpy..
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.
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!
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!
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 times.pt
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).
Wonderfully day !
The golf course Vale do Lobo is outstanding. Had a blast on this 18 Holes.
the golf course was in world class condition .. plus new buggies as well ..
great diversity of holes, fantastic 16,
Loved the course, very good value for money, beautiful condition. Everything was amazing
Great course but one poor staff member did his best to spoil things.
Dr. Klaus Mittelbach
Everything all right. Good restaurant
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.
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
Very nice experience i played on Royal Course: excellent
Very good website to book through. Course was great.
Fab course. Always in great condition.
good and well maintain course, beautiful set up
Very nice course with an excellent reception from staff. Played at 7 o'clock was a little bit frisky but very enjoyable
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
Easy check in. Good service. Good pace of play for 1pm start Course in very good condition. Enjoyable experience.
A hard walk but excellent course with a variety of challenging holes all in excellent condition.
Staff were ok considering the mix up, course ok
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 !!!
Marisa has been AWESOME to deal with !
The Courses at Vale do Lobo are fantastic ! But had to pay 45 Euro for buggy, it is too expensive!
Der Platz ist stehts in einem exzellenten Zustand. Die Frauenabschläge könnten gerade sein, ab und zu findet man wellige Abschläge
Check-in very efficient given we also needed to hire buggy, trolley and clubs. Course is of high quality.
Dominik L. Zuhorn
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.
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.
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
Sunset in Sweet 16 fantastic
très beau golf, fairway en très bon état.
Dr Chris Ashton
Excellent course in great condition. Starters/staff very friendly and accommodating.
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.
Cracking course, well kept in December. Fairways great to play off, greens received well and rolled true. Exceptional facilities and professional staff.
We had a great round of golf, the course was amazing and staff were excellent. I cannot fault the service we received
One of the best in Vilamoura
Everything was fine, every Person was very friendly and the Course in Good condition!
Mr Stephen W A Chapman
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
Very impressed with Vale do Lobo Very friendly staff and great clubhouse.Golf course in good condition. Will return.
Course in good condition but currently not as good as the Ocean course
Everything was in order. The condition of the greens could have been better
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.
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
Très beau parcours et bien varié
good course. Well maintained.
Great service by staff and very friendly.
Superb course and facilities
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.
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.
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!
Lovely course in good condition except the tee boxes were awful.
not well maintained tees
Nice golf but it’s a pity that no towel is available in the showers
The courses perfect!!! The receprion service at Valo de Lobo - a bit slow and complicated procedure- (e.g. why is the paper voucher requested?)
Amazing course, lack of driving range was a little disappointing
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
Great course. Perhaps the Ocean Course is amrginally better. Lovely views along the beach. Wonderful clubhouse.
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.
Nice and interesting course. Outstanding view on hole 16. course is difficult to find with GPS.
The Royal was fantastic
worked well, good pick up return service
Had a fab time in vale do lobo royal. Loved course and all staff were very nice and helpful.
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
Again a great course and wanted to stay for longer post round.
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
very good course good greens and great course layout
Reception staff fantastic. Course was stunning and greens true. Quieter than other courses
Very enjoyable, lovely course
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!
Giovanni D Elia
Was a great Game. Expected to have a display in the buggy and more friendly workers in the shop
Prefer this course to the Ocean but in fairness, both are great
M. Perez de Zabalza
Excellent field, marvellous hole near the sea.
wonderful day out at a superb golf course and well looked after by the team at Vale de Lobo
Good condition and pretty tight making it a challenge. Not as scenic as the ocean course which we preferred. Staff and clubhouse were excellent
Great round. We had an even earlier start.
Great course in very good condition just a shame there is so much distance between greens and tees
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.
The best course I have ever played on. The condition was immaculate and topped off by the amazing scenery surrounding it.
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.
Course in mint condition.
Brilliant course layout and condition. The staff were very polite and professional
Excellent course with great facilities
Course was in excellent condition, pace of play was very good under 4 hours for a round.
Excellent course in great condition. 16th hole didn't disappoint!
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
Excellent course ,staff really good ,transfers excellent can’t wait to play it again
Mr D W Huckerby
Very good course transfers from hotel and back excellent
Lovely course great condition throughout
Course is in great shape. Lovely golf club and staff are very pleasant
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
Very enjoyable day. Staff at the course were efficient, friendly and helpful. Staff at Tee Times we’re very good.
Very good facilities, great service from the staff. Coarse in great condition with exceptional greens.
Good course,but the greenkeper should wonder how he place the flag sometimes, so bad on 2 holes when the flag is downhill
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.
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
Nice course,good greens
Great course, good condition, shame there’s such limited practice facilities
One of the best golf courses I've played. Fantastic!
John J Gosney
A really nice course presented in great condition. Great facilities. Would definitely recommend to friends.
Very very good again. Clubhouse the best we visit. Courses very busy but in great condition.
Course was excellent only downside was the number of unrepaired pitchmarks, especially as we teed off at 7am.
Lovely course - nice playing partners. Miss a good driving range at Vale do Lobo
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.
The setting, club facilities and course were superb, I would recommend this course and complex to any golfer.
Course in good condition as always. Greens were a little slow but to be expected during twilight round
Course in stunning condition
Every one from reception to starter were very helpful and the course was excellent
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!!
Very good golf course, very tough driving holes. Greens very good
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
A fantastic course in a beautiful setting which although challenging is very playable for all handicaps
Excellent condition, pace of play was very good
Peter S Watson
Good course, well maintained and managed. Good greens. Food and service excellent. Happy to return soon.
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
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.
Stunning course. Tight in places with small greens.
Course was excellent, staff good. Not having electric caddy cars was a disappointment.
Most enjoyable Set off at 3.20 and arrived back at 7.30 when still light. Only a small rain shower!
Fantastic golf at VDL Royal. Only charged €1.00 for my 11 year old son fantastic.
Coarse was good but i feel overpriced especially with no Buggy or even some practice balls included
Beautiful golf Good rate I recommend
Course in great condition
Good value twilight session. Course in excellent condition
Absolutely fantastic course in pristine condition. Will def play there again
In fantastic condition and a very good test
Juan A. Sanchez
Buen campo, con calles y greenes muy variados Muy recomendable
Course in excellent co
Golf course ok, but slow play in front of us.
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.
Nice course. Fair challenge. In good condition for Jan/Feb
Fantastic golf courses
Excellent course in first class conditions, greens like glass. Great fun.
Good condition overall especially Greens. Improved since last visit in October. Tight course well layed out.
Lovely golfcourse, very friendly welcome at the reception
Dr Christopher Ashton
Course in excellent condition. Staff very friendly and accommodating.
Great experience as always
Dominik L. Zuhorn
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
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.
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.
Appreciate the course was having maintenance but still have to pay full price
Padraic Ó Dubhshláine
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.
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 -
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.
Great service from teetimes, great Price !
Course excellent, becoming a favourite, staff attitude improving.
Course is ok
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.
was a petty i could not play with others
Welcoming, course in good condition, greens a little slow but c onsistant. All in all a gooe experience. Thanks, Phil Woodall.
Excellent and beautiful course
Once again Superb
The course was in great condition and has a wonderful layout staff were all pleasant and helpful one of my favourite courses
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.
Enjoyed vale do lobo very much.royal course not as good condition as ocean but service very good
Mr Matt Grant
Great course, with some fantastic holes, 15 great view down to the sea and as for 16, awesome par 3, would definitely recommend
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.
very good course
We loved the Royal course and all commented what a beautiful house it was. Very nice bar and club area too.
Great course in immaculate condition. 16th hole is truly spectacular!
loved the 16th hole take a camera stunning hole .. facilities on golf course brilliant
What a complex, thoroughly enjoyed amazing experience
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.
All went very smooth also understood that we wanted to play in a 2...Bit slow on the back nine
Loved the course, in great condition. Superb facilities, not the cheapest part of the Algarve but definitely worth a visit
In my top 3 golf courses I have played. Fabulous condition, really varied challenge and can't fault it
Brilliant course! Treated brilliantly by all the staff
Roy G. Jack
Course was not in as good condition as previous years but still enjoyable.
Absolutely fantastic from booking to arrival and the course itself
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
Very happy with course condition
Great course. In good condition.
Always very overplayed and consequently too slow..... more marshalling required!!
Great round of golf at Vale Do Lobo.
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
Nice golf coutse and well kept
That course is a beauty ???????????? In good condition and I love the layout.
Great course in excellent condition and facilities
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.
Olivier van Wulfften Palthe
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.
Simon D Turner
The whole course was in superb condition. Great day of golf.
Top class golf course in great condition
Very enjoyable especially the 16th which was a great experience!
Beautiful course. Some holes require a straight driver and the 15 is the best one.
Well looked after courses and service very good.
Loved the course and the layout just a bit long between tee and green as we used trollies
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
Absolutely stunning golf course, in fantastic condition
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.
Everything went perfectly. Great course
Always stay here for food but it's very over priced!
The whole course / location and set up is fantastic. the course was in amazing condition, 1 not to be missed.
Played here a lot, always a good golfing experience
It was really good
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.
Fabulous course in perfect condition
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
We had a fantastic day. Beautiful course. Excellent friendly staff
Great course what I expected good condition
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.
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
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.
very good! although it was only the second day of opening after maintenance the greens were in good condition
Superbe ! Course difficult but in perfect shape even if it was raining a lot.
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.
Some excellent holes but the course looses atmosphere because it is so spread out.
the experience was very pleasant with staff a great help
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!)
Great course in good condition
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.
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
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. .
The signature hole is the green fee worth, perfect greens and fairways , I prefer royal than ocean course
Es war alles in Ordnung Bestens
Well organised, curtious staff, everything ran smoothly. Fantastic service.
Excellent service a pleasant experience.
W A Mead
After the misery of Ocean the Royal was an experience in a good way.
Superb as always
Everything was just fine thank you. Course lovely, service at club house good.
great course with wonderful greens and views.
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.
Sehr gut gepflegter Golfplatz, Bahn 16 ist einmalig.
This Court is In a very good condition, but it was to hard to play for us
Excellent experience and venue.
This is excellent course
Good course, great condition
The Royal is the best course we played
Der Golfplatz war wie immer im perfekten Zustand, das Personal im Büro sehr hilfsbereit.
Dominik L. Zuhorn
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.
course was in good order
Did not enjoy this course. Condition was poor.
Martin Georg Hilke
Friendly staff, courses welk prepared, fast greens
Lovely course in excellent condition. Straight, accurate tee shots are required.
Great course, good condition
Except for the 16th hole not really exciting
Yes lovely course and nice and quiet
Another great day with lovely weather and company, followed by drinks with everyone at Chez Carlos Restaurant , many thanks again
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.
Great course for all range of handicaps
Course in very Golf Condition
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.
10/10..got 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
Course in generally good condition, wet underfoot but to be expected given the overnight rain. Greens fast & true and well maintained all round
Lovely golf course and facilities. Staff were friendly
The ranger was very good this year. Very active. Good to see
Fine location very enjoyable
You will not play a better Course and the 16th, what can I say fantastic challenge
great golf course
Fantastic golf course - always in good condition. Always good to play the famous par 3 16th.
Lovely course with some great holes.
As usual great course and club house.
Everything was just fine
Great course in excellent condition. Terrific group of players today.
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...
Very good to excellent course. Fantastic clubhouse and restaurant facility for the Vale do Lobo courses.
Beautiful course. A must do once in Algarve.
Excellent, very enjoyable
Loved this course too. Can't pick between this one and Ocean. Will play it again.
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.
Most enjoyable course. 1st time playing there and won't be our last. Very friendly staff and course was in superb condition.
Vale do Lobo delivers a fine golfing experience throughout. Twilight round is great value and both courses are in fabulous condition
Joy to play
Fantastic fairways this year
This course was excellent not as challenging as the Ocean Course but again fairways good and greens fast. 9/10
Compared with the other courses this was our least favourite
The prettier course, teed off on time and round in just over 4 hours which was splendid.
Super ! Very very good place. Hole number 16 is awesome !!
the best fantastic golf course of all...10 out of 10
Also very good. It's recommended to take a buggy due to long course and long ways between holes.
Nice course but we had bad weather, so it was a bit swampy on several holes. No driving range.
Excellent course in great condition.
Best course we played, fantastic.
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.
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.
Good but perhaps too testing for us.
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
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
Immaculate golf course. Greens, rough, fairways, bunkers. Tip to shape. Beautiful course to play. I had a great day there,
Great course. Buggies and trollies greatly overpriced
Not a very special course. Too much distance between the holes and sometimes poorly direction given between the holes
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.
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.
Patrick J Neary
Really liked the course and played there twice; the staff there were very nice and the clubhouse food menu was lovely.
DEIRDRE Jim Kearney
Buggies are too expensive.
Breathtaking, looking forward to playing again.
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.
Good, challenging track. Some tough golf holes after a gentle start.
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
It can be very slow.
Great course and facilities. Layout of the course and views were stunning.
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.

Excellent condition and some wonderful challenging holes
Excellent all round golf experience. Clubhouse, staff and course were all excellent
Robert van der Struijf
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!
Excellent course, however buggies could do with course navigation aid.
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!
Fantastic golfcourse Pleasant service and everything a 100%
Great course a bit short off the yellow tees
Great course a bit short off the yellow tees
Very picturesque course with some challenging holes.
Loved this course
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
Honestly sensational, everything I wanted it to be. Beautiful place to play golf
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
Good course, but buggy definitely required
just the buggies way to expensive
Loved the course ....great staff,starters,facilities and condition of course......Our no. one course.
The best course i have ever played
Good service - good course - need to improve second and third holesx to be a great course
Very good course. Service excellent too. Probably the best course I have ever played
As above but prefer the Ocean course as it is less technically demanding and more scenic.
Alles gut, super gepflegt.
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 in excellent condition.
Very good golf course and holes, much better than expected, in great condition.
Verry good course , in a verry good shape lovely holes.
Rained off one day and they happily changed my booking to next day
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!
Everything ok but the rental price for a trolley is too expensive (9 € per round)
good as always
