Course in excellent condition and staff friendly and helpul
The course was immaculate, and the facilities were excellent. Played this course over 10 years ago and cant remember it being so good. I definitely will not be waiting another 10 years to play it again as it is up there with best Vilamoura has to offer in my opinion. Staff in bar and golf shop very friendly and they give you clubs a good clean after your round, 10/10
Staff very friendly and service was great. The course is generally well kept although some of the tees could be better and greens had a few pitch marks
Lovely course but to play on course with so many trees you need to be a very good player. Easy to lose a ball up the tree !
Course in OK condition, greens slow but receptive
nice un-exciting resort course. Very slow greens, Decent pace of play (4.5 hrs - but in off/on drizzle). Good driving range and warm up area (saw it but didn't use it - drizzle). getting around a bit of a pain, houses, parking lots etc, but walkable course. No memorable holes but nice overall.
Its very long Play was very slow 5 hours for round
This was our final round of our stay and was as enjoyable, if not more so than the others. The course was in excellent condition, despite the rain, and has some very memorable holes, the 14th and 15th in particular. Overall a fantastic experience and we will definitely plan a return visit to Vilamoura.
Lovely course. Very well kept, greens were great. Par 3’s were excellent. Gotta be accurate off the tee box. Lots of mature trees.
Course was great. Staff in the clubhouse were very pleasant when we went in for a refreshment after the game.
Pinhal is in top condition and the best Dom Pedro course this summer! The tee board is still missing on hole 4 and there has been various rubbish at tee 16 since January! (Tee board is in the bushes…) Strange that there is not a single course worker who can pick up the rubbish that has been there for months. 10 points would otherwise have been within reach.
It’s a great course and using teetimes is easy
Green very good
Having played many courses in the Algarve over the last 20 years this is my first visit to Pinhal Very impressed. With the course layout. In the course condition will definitely be back again shortly.
A tricky tree lined track in great condition!
Lovely course and in very good condition for July. Glad we had a buggy
Good shape overall, but many players does not fix pitch mark at all! Tee board is completely missing on hole 4. On hole 16 at the tee, it looks like someone littered and drove over the tee board with a vehicle. For an experienced golfer, it is very annoying that the flag marking is wrong on most of the tee flags. Indicates poor commitment from course staff when cutting or placing the flags.
Course in excellent condition, staff very helpful. Buggies a little expensive if a single golfer, maybe look at only charging half price especially when course is not busy.
Only did nine holes very slow play from the group in front and marshal didn’t talk to them ?
Best course out of the 3 we played
Val Mc Mahon
Once again a very enjoyable game of golf over a course in great condition.
I booked our tee time/transfer with the help of telma the service was fist class and both the course and transfer was superb.
Very slow but lovely course
Pinhal is an excellent course, very enjoyable layout and in decent condition, as per my comment on all Vilamoura courses since Dom Pedro took over, their standards are starting to slip, more money needs to be spent to get back to where they were
Nice and easy with no issues!
this course was not as well maintained as the others we played at on this trip. customer service also not as good, with no water offered with the bu ggy. when we asked for some the response was buy at the bar, you get what you pay for here'
We are playing now. Course is fantastic condition. We were sent off the back 9 so started on hole 10. We played the 1st 9 paired with another couple, all of us walking. We played the 1st 9 in 1hr 50mins at a nice pace. The back 9 has been so slow it’s really spoilt our day and enjoyment of the round. We are waiting on every single shot. Due to play the back 9 in 2.50mins! Ridiculous! They shouldn’t do hole 10 start if they can’t do it properly and waste our money. Very disappointed with Pinhal but not the course. I really hope we are starting on hole 10 tomorrow or Sunday. Please pass my thoughts on to Pinhal so they don’t spoil any other players rounds. Thanks Jim brooks
Amazing staff. Amazing food. Great pace of play, 100% return
Excellent course in great condition. No Course marshals keeping the pace of play up to speed, so a very long round. 55 euros per buggy and no bottle of water.
Slightly disappointed with condition of the course this year, especially considering the green fee paid, greens were pretty good, albeit a bit slow, most other grassed areas rather untidy unfortunately
Good course tight fairways
Pinhal course is wonderful however there was so much congestion due too many people playing, the placing between tee offs too short which spoilt the enjoyment
A bit disappointed on the first 9 holes because they quite looked the same
Pace of play was excellent at Pinhal which is in great consition
Nice challenging course
same as always 100 percent
Everything went very well. The course was good, greens were a little slow.
Sløve og ujævne greens. Mange træer placeret midt på fairways og foran greens ren Mickey Mouse bane. -**- Dull and uneven greens. Many trees located in the centre of the fairways and in front of the greens pure Mickey Mouse course.
Had a great day
Jon Erik Børresen
I expected at least bottle of wather in the rented buggy.
The course was in good conditions. Fairways good and same for the greens. Very friendly staff at the reception and at the carrymasters
Lovely course and clubhouse always worth the visit
Like all Dom Pedro courses, money urgently needed for tired club house. Greens a joy. Burger wonderful.
Both days most enjoyable
Mrs Catherine Hinds
Balls for practice too expensive
Very good condition
Great course, in super condition.
Course was I nice condition apart from the greens. They were poor and while you could see they were being maintained they let the overall course experience down. Good layout and some really good challenging holes to enjoy.
Great course in great condition. Definitely worth a visit.
Beautiful golf course in excellent condition. Friendly staff. Not too crowdy as we were low season.
Same experience as during the last years. Tee boxes, fairways and greens in good condition..
François De Witte
Nice golf course. The trolley was not good.
Unfortunately I had to cancel . I had great help in rebooking for next year
Perfect course maintenance, big improve in last few years
Great course, challenging!!
A decent golf course. Many holes look the same - flat and between the trees. Turning left or right.
David Paul Gough
The course was overpriced considering the poor condition of the course especially the tees.
Excellent afternoons booking
Very enjoyable game at Pinhal. Only problem was the golf was extremely slow! due to large number of golfers out on course, & maybe with not a lot of golf experience! Still good day.
Nice course, a lot of pitch marks on greens, signposting could be better
The course layout is ideal. However presentation is scruffy with patchy greens & poor 1st & 2nd cut aprons. Very municipal UK standard. Not worth the €110 per player fee. Millenium was far superior & better value for money. Also neex to review ability to book at clubhouse... the 48hrs policy is not helpful when trying to book face to face tee times
Lovely course back 9 exceptional
Unfortunately, we got rained off so can't comment on the course. We played it in April, and it was great and always find it in great condition. The staff id Pinhal as always so good and friendly.
Ok course, good service in clubhouse.
Best of the 3 courses played with regard to course presentation (playing conditions and standard).
Was rained off ,I got a voucher and played Sunday ,very much appreciated,course was excellent,it has improved in recent years
Every year we´re playing this course and every time its really nice
Staff very friendly and helpful, food was excellent and the course was in a very good condition.
the golf restaurant is nice and is open till 7 pm
Very enjoyable round of golf! Challenging course!
Fantastic. Course was in great condition and we both enjoyed it.
Pinhal provided us with the hardest test of the 3 courses we played, which says a lot when the venue for the Portuguese Masters was one of the other 2 courses. It played very long and the 400yards plus par 4's were never ending!
Great Experience very easy
We have now played this course twice. It is probably our least favourite of the Algarve courses. Condition was good but not fans of the layout with too many trees blocking shots from the fairway. Worst example is hole 17. Welcome in proshop variable with one day pleasant and next day disinterested.
Very nice Golf course in good condition. Little bit expensive.
Decent course in good condition. Disappointing, having booked 2x3 balls, to have to split into a 4 and 2 ball and have to have two strangers join us. Great driver, Bruno, who did the transfers.
Food was very acceptable and reasonably priced. Check in easy, golf a little slow but understand it was full
Excellent course and we teed off early,
Excellent sign in, no hassle whatsoever
Love the location & the clubhouse environment. Course in great condition. Only disappointment was that there was no drink buggy in service this year
Some difficult holesStaff very friendly . Some of the paths from Green to tee could be better
Very nice championchip course
Very good. Fun course & a fair challenge for all level of golfer.
Course was in excellent condition Very pleasant and forgiving course with a variety of challenging holes Staff we amazing and even allowed us to delay our tee by 45 mins due to one player being delayed
Pinhal Staff very helpful
Great day on a demanding course but the Tee Boxes were not up to their normal standard
Very very slow , caused serious back up and late tee time .
Course in good condition, greens a bit slow. Reception welcoming and pace of play good
Well maintained! Understand that fairways and tee’s are not closely mowed to prevent dry out. But dtill somewhat too long. But complements for maintaining quality course.
A little bit expensive course. Very green (good) but normal price for buggy is 50 euro (bad, to expensive)
Great day! Nice maintained corse
Played here last Friday 17/06/22 what an outstanding course first class service from start to finish would highly recommend it.
We got round in good time. The course is presented very well and provides a good test of shot making.
Ver good, feel the price is expensive compared to other courses round.
A good course but in need of some attention around the course and paths.
Lovely golf course. Greens and fairways in great condition. Took just over 3 hours to complete round. ??
Great course that the whole group enjoyed.
Best bunkers outside UK I have played.
The Caddymaster was excellent! Please ensure he gets a special mention, he allowed us to stay out later than the 20:00 required usual return of clubs to allow us to finish all of our 18 holes. Very nice gesture and appreciated. Lovely venue and good golf course.
Really lovely course. We managed to play as a two ball which was nice. Play was a bit slow but we let a three ball through which relaxed us a bit . Definitely a recommendation.
Excellent service all round…staff were friendly, helpful and the course was in excellent condition. The only thing that could have improved the service was check in, there was only one member of staff available to check in players, and at a very busy time of the day this caused a queue which made time to practice very short. An observation, not a criticism, and I very much Look forward to returning
Great Service all round with no issues!
I have played Pinhal on very many occasions, so I knew what to expect. Course maintenance was good and teeboxes, fairways, bunkers and greens were well presented. The non existence of buggy paths is a problem. The dusty gravel paths do not do the course any favours and do not create a good impression.
Great golf course with very helpful staff. Would Hinckley recommend.
A fantastic service . Keep up the good work
Course in excellent condition. Buggy cost, at 20 euros more than at Vale do Lobo, is very expensive at DP Vilamoura courses.
Service very good but felt the course looked a bit tired in places
Very enjoyable from start to finish, staff were super & course was in good condition
Lovely course. Enjoyed it
They Wouldn’t Offer Another Day To Switch Tee Time When Weather Was Bad Yesterday Not Very Helpfu
Booked 5 rounds with Alexandre and Jorge, great price and service. Will definitely use again the next time we go on a golfing trip.
In good condition and fine greens.
Course could have been in better condition
Builing inside need to be more modernised same with tables and chairs but service was good.
Lovely course, in good condition and very friendly staff
Course in good condition, as well fairways and greens. Around the fairways the quality isn’t that well, looks not very properly. At hole 13 the battery of our e-trolley was empty, the Marshall brought a new one after 10 minutes, that was very much appreciated.
Nice golf course No more electrical caddy in the morning(all reserved for big group)
Mr Jonathan Lloyd
Enjoyed playing the course.
Wayne Gary Malouin
This was my first time playing Pinhal and it was very enjoyable. This is one more course on my check list to golf. There are so many courses here in the Algarve
very nice course best condition i've seen it in. Plenty of grass on the fairways and greens running well.
Beautiful course, greens in great condition and the name is more than justified
Neil de Goede
Difficult and great course
Great test. Small greens and in vraat condition. If you can shoot a score here, you can play golf
Good condition.Driving Range balls too costy
Very easy booking and Marisa is fabulous
Pinhal is a beautifully mature well maintained course. Greens were well presented and quick, even in Feb! Quite a tight course that as a 16 handicap I found enormously challenging, not just the close by villas but also, the many beautiful pines. The service off the course was fantastic especially the bar staff who were fantastic.
Pleasant staff Nice course
Great organised event by George good course and great company
Good course in good condition
The best range locally also a nice chipping green and putting green. The course was in decent condition.
Enjoy the course but poor cousin in terms of maintenance - particularly the tees
Un parcours agréable, ?' entretien est très bon,les greens très roulants. L' acceuil est très amical au proshop, ainsi qu'au bar.
A good day - course condition quite good for the time of year
Feels like the standard of the courses in Vilamoura gets a little bit worse for each year since it changed to Dom Pedro from Oceanico. - The greens were soo slow and very very soft which leads to big marks even from only walking on the green. Not to mention the huge pitchmarks created and when people don't repair it perfect it quickly leaves big scars on the green. - Patchy rough around the green areas. - Worn down tee boxes. + Great bunkers. All in all it really feels like the course would need to rest for a couple of weeks.
Pinhal is a very nice and money worth golfcourse
Slow needs a marshal on course
Greens need more attention but overall enjoyable.
Nice course. I always play this course when I am in Vilamoura
Parfait malgré un peu de pluie merci pour l’organisation
A lovely course in good condition for this time of year. Placing of the trees makes it an interesting course. Unfortunately like every other course in the Algarve in October, it needs Marshalls. Not worth the money at this time of year.
Helpful and friendly and enjoyed playing the course.
In good condition . No powakaddys left to book only pull trolleys. Halfway house not open and the food buggy didn’t get to us. A good day though.
Telma has been great. Anything we needed answered she was happy to help. Always provided us with all the information we needed. Thankyou
A really nice course that we have played on many occasions. It was in good condition. The voucher time did not match with the tee time that Pinhal had down for us, but this was only 9 minutes difference so didnt cause a problem.
I found the course to be very worn (it was clear it is the most played in Vilamoura). The cart paths also need a lot of work... extremely bumpy driving around the cart paths in a buggy. Also some tee boxes were in bad shape. Overall layout of the course is very good however (very challenging).... Just needs some work done to improve cart paths and tee boxes...Farefares and Greens in relatively good condition.
Still lovely course to play. Need to he hitting straight!!!
The golf Course was very golf. But the staff at the restaurant was vet poor //Danne
Very enjoyable need to get a good drive away avoiding the trees.
All very good
played before nice course and good value
Very friendly reception staff and course in excellent condition.
Lovely course in great condition. Most enjoyable
Good course good condition tight tree lined course must be accurate. Staff very friendly and helpful will play again
The course was in good condition and the tight fairways make it quite challenging. Woefully slow round and the course marshalls need to be more alert to this.
Great course and a great day :)
Best course I have played on so far. Enjoyed it very much
Great course, conditions and facilities. Would highly recommend
Course is in very good condition. Also Very good rate for Club & Buggy Hire. All Staff are very friendly & Accommodating. Only difficulty is do not put golf ball on top of trees as sometimes it will not come down. Look forward to next time.
Always lovely to play vilamoura Pinhal. The staff are really friendly, and the course was in lovely condition
Excellent service from all concerned the food was really good and the course is in fantastic condition.
Pinhal is in good condition, enjoyable by all playing levels. Some fairways are narrowed by pine trees and rough. Letting the rough to dry a bit would improve play and pace. While reducing water consumption. Need some “next tee” signs to help navigating the course. Nice club house and facilities. Everything is there.
Disappointed the bar was not open afterwards.
I feel Pinhal has improved a lot over the past few years, enjoyable course at reasonable cost.
Very friendly and a great course to play. Greens were lovely.
Very Good Course in veery good condition but Courses around Vilamoura are Expensive when you include the cost of a Buggy.
Dr. Klaus Mittelbach
Everything well organised, course in good shape
Tough challenge but good condition.
Challenging course in the breeze
Challenging course in the breeze
Course in good condition and staff very efficient and friendly.
ADRIAN FRASER JONES
Greens and course in excellent condition
Simon D Turner
Great to see Pinhal back in super condition. Clubhouse terracing much improved., Never seen the course so quiet.
Relatively expensive compared with other equally good or better Chez Carlos venues.
Course is in pretty good conditions given the heat and droughtness. Greens are very pure so balls roll perfectly. Not the best layout of the Dom Pedro courses to my taste, since the course is spread out between houses and urban roads, but if you have already played the others, Pinhal is worth a visit. Medium difficulty to play it on foot and better to drive straight, otherwise better to swap your LW for an axe.
Jamie Mc Donald
Absolutely perfect, staff couldn’t be friendlier and course was gorgeous, great day
The day was good. Excellent staff. Great experience
Great course enjoyed by everyone. People who have come for the first time as well as those who have been coming for almost 20 years
Again a course in good condition. We have now played our 3 courses and I have experienced before the courses so good as this year.
Great course in great condition
The best of the 3, will be back. Excellent Service
nice golf course but a bit difficult for most of our group
Good practice facilities, although chipping area needs some TLC. Course in excellent condition. Second 9 very slow , Marshall needed..
Superb course, kept in fantastic condition and a pleasure to play on it.
Great service lots of good communication from the team. Happy to go the extra mile to get things right. I definitely recommend using tee times.
very nice & technical golf course.
Nice course in very good condition! Nice to play.
A lovely course with great facilities. The course was in great condition although a slow round. Food in club house was excellent as well
Course in good condition, greens were not so good.
Course in very good condition! It's a pleasure to play!
Course in very good condition!
Trees and more trees. Tough course in really good condition
In much better condition than last year - very good. Cold wind though!
I always enjoy Pinhal, a lot of trees,. Nice course
Beatyful course. We liked it very much. A lot of pines yes, but every hole was interesting. Wavy course, up and down, some with doglegs. Very good care condition, green keepers were everywhere. Greens not too fast. Nice new refurbished clubhouse terrace.
We really enjoyed our round, course in good condition.
Very enjoyable round of golf! A challenging course
Le plus beau des parcours entre Lagune et millenium.
No seating when play became slow poor signage to direct players from green to tee. Otherwise good
Fantastic service, the golf course qas is fantastic condition
Nice course and friendly staff
Good conditions and lovely holes!
We've been playing here for many years and always enjoy, this year we see good overall conditions , however the fairways are heavily marked 'unrepaired divots, greens long and overly soft
Excellent course. Well marshalled.
Excellent course, but very busy
Jan Mark Lund
The staff were very helpful and the course was in excellent condition. I thoroughly enjoyed my round
greens in great condition but need to work on the buggy paths and lost of scruffy waste areas - not worth 105 Euros. Very slow play (5 hr round) and waited on every hole until the 18th !
Gerry Mc Kenna
Better of the two courses we played
Simple to arrange and pay for golf. Transfers included
Very nice and well maintained golf course. We enjoyed our round today.
Nice course but too many groups out. Long times waiting on Tee boxes.
Schöner und gepflegter Kurs ohne viel spektakuläres. Für jedermann gut spielbar. Wenig Wasser viele Bunker.
Really enjoyed the experience. Definitely would play this course again
Course had been closed for 2 weeks prior to us playing and some works were ongoing but did not affect the golf. Greens slow, but sure down to 2 week closure for course recovery.
Very enjoyable, but challenging Course was in great condition, particularly the greens
I would firstly like to say a big thankyou to Ron & Carlos for making me welcome & answering all my queries I had whilst booking to join the society for the day.???? I was lucky enough to play with Carlos & John of whom were cracking company playing on a well maintained course. I will certainly be back & recommend the Golf society to fellow golfing friends. #Good#Valueformoney# Cheers???? to a cracking day...
Excellent condition but expensice
Very good course in nice condition
Really enjoyable day. Service was excellent and course in good condition with some testing holes.
Nice course but the greens weren't in great condition. Would recommend a buggy
Michael D Stangoe
Good test of golf
Great course really enjoyed the challenging layout
Staff good and friendly, food good but pricey, course is good and has improved greatly over the years
Not as busy as other courses so we were able to play at our own pace.
nice clubhouse, a short tight course with slower greens
Absolutely fine, thanks
Had a round with a visitor from Bristol, generally good on the golf side. The course requires a greater degree of accuracy as the tree lined fairways are not very forgiving when you are off line. Our two ball was behind a members 4 ball who clearly are not aware of call through protocol. Ridiculously slow and we could have been and gone in 5 minutes if they want to stay all day out there 4 hours 15 minutes in buggies - come on! (contrast 3hours 20 minutes at the old course just 2 days earlier). One of my favourite courses at Glamour but slow play is only forgivable if you call faster groups through!
As with Millennium over priced for what it is!
This is a good course !
Course in great condition. Lovely evening
Could only drink one round after the course... which we experienced not friendly. Flight itself was Nice! Almost 18 holes played.
Very good course
Very friendly and relaxed staff; infrstructure (lokker room, showers) need some upgrade; golf course not too demanding and nicely maintained. Recommendeable place.
Gordon W Reich
Very friendly staff. Pinhal has a good course layout w/ generous fairways, strategically placed bunkers, smaller greens that are in very good shape (around a 10 stimp) & water on most par 3's. However the course is starting to look tired as the wooden landscape ties along the cart paths / tee boxes are starting to rot and show their age. Some of the green fee money must be put back into maintenance. Green fee price is high for the total package the course presents.
Organisation was spot on. Course was in good condition. It would be good to have an option to prebook buggies at a discounted rate for all courses.
Very happy with the service we received when booking golf
The course was in good condition but the pace of play was slow.
A lovely round of golf this morning.
Fantastic course, pleasant staff. Great service using the shuttle service
As I have come to expect the general condition of the course was very good except for the bunkers. I liked the pond improvements and the path around the 8th tee. There was a delay to our start and our pre booked time had been changed without prior notification. The pace of play was ok at 4:35, considering the number of players out the overall strength of the wind. Some of the cart path could do with an upgrade in particular between the 12th to 13th.
On time and coarse in very good condition really enjoyable
David Eirian Lewis
Great course and facilites
We liked most this course. The undulating fairways framed by pines made us feel like home
Perfect beautiful course very friendly service
Excellent service at Pinhal!
heaven, in my element,
Course in great condition and buggies reasonably priced at 25 euro. Definitely be back.
Very good facilities and the course was good to play .glad we hired buggies as it was a bit of a distance between green and next tee on certain holes
The course was great, but the pace of play was extremely slow. The round lasted well above five hours. This was due to some fleets playing very slowly. I understand that many of the players were elderly players, but still the pace could have been kept faster. The marshalls for example allowed extended searching times well exceeding the present rules. On a full day like yesterday, the starters could kindly remind all the players about the importance of keeping the pace.
Pinhal is an excellent course and a real challenge. The course was in great condition throughout and the buggies were only 25 euros (instead of 40 euros) after mid-day.
Another good course
Nice to play back on this course but very crowdy...
The greens little too slow
Very enjoyable day with very friendly people, Would like to have has some other lady golfers.
excellent course, facilities and staff.
Hervé Van Overtvelt
Beautiful golfcourse. With a lot of typical trees. Buggy was not driving well so after 9 holes we had to change it.
Paired with a pleasant Swedish couple, but a 5 hour round due to very slow people in some games ahead, could do with course marshals to hurry slow matches along.
Course in good condition. Enjoyable to Play. Beware of ball staying up in trees. Reception & Course staff very pleasant and helpful.
All good - staff were efficient and friendly, course was good
Same again was great
Lovely Golf-Course, I will return
Very good course but very rxpensive
Great course and in good condition, it wasn't too busy either
Had another great day with lovely friends, thank you so much
Enjoyable day on a nice course, not to hard, and a fairly easy walk
Great course, helpful staff, third course we played and most people’s favourite, only downside was paying €5 for 10 French Fries in a tin container after our round stopped us staying longer shame but everything else was superb
Pinhal although not my favourite course is well worth a visit .. Enjoyed the course and clubhouse.
Place in good condition. Staff friendly. ???????????? Unfortunately, some golfers on the course are by no means playing HCP 28/35 and thus slowing down the round ??????
All the staff were very helpful and always greeted us with a smile.
Excellent as always.
Brilliant as always, easy to book, all transfers were on time, golf courses in great condition, staying at don Pedro was really good a close to all the bars & restaurants, will definitely book for next year
Played to rounds at Pinhal both days very windy. Good test of golf and thoroughly enjoyed the experience Found Jorge at tee times very helpful and he ensured we had a good Trip Ian Walton
Very enjoyable. No complaints.
Great course but tight, team in bar area not the best from our weekend experience.
Good course, friendly staff. Pretty quiet
Course is in great condition. Very much enjoyed our round today
course great to play
a reasonable course and value for money at the cost but not up to the quality of other courses in the area.
Course was in lovely condition and the breakfast was great. Great value.
Great course in good condition
Cheng Li Seng
Nothing lesser than Old Course. Well-designed course with great greens. Similiar design concept like Old course with treeline along the fairways. The course was beyond my expectation and definitely worth a try.
Great course, beautiful weather, wonderfull villas and nice play company. What a geat time for New Year Eve!!!
Hello when we arrived with our voucher The Pinhal didn’t Have our booking from Teetimes....we waited for a moment before to be sure to play . We hope you made the necessary for our following booking. Regards Régis Delahaye
Lovely course, good condition
Dominik L. Zuhorn
Pinhal ist ein schöner Platz. Leiter wurden die Grüns aerifiziert, so dass die Puts nicht gelingen können.
Gerry O Connor
No fault with the Course but it was not kind to me the day I played it.
Very enjoyable day
Hans Ulrich Erne
Pinhal is in good condition. Better than the Years before. Fun to play there.
Course well presented, staff pleasant and courteous.
A very good course a lot of trees we was behind a competition very slow dark when we finished must play again in daylight Brian
very nice course for the first day in Portugal
Excelllent service booked with ease from us all was as expected Thank you to Katie
Some slowi play leading to hold ups. Course good.
Good condition friendly staff enjoyed the round there , greens putted nicely overall condition of this course very good .
Course lovely, but overcrowded. Waited to play every shot on every hole. Over 5 hours for a round. There did not seem to be marshals speeding up players ahead.
Golf course & driving range was excellent. Staff on first tee & pro shop were very pleasant. No electric trolleys were available to rent.
Très beau parcours mais toujours les mêmes remarques. Entretiens des greens pas à la hauteur du prix à payer, pas assez de marshal pour contrôler le parcours et éviter de jouer en plus 5 heures J’ai ke sentiment que la société Don Pedro ne pensexqu’à faire de l’argent sans s’occuper des client Comme la plupart des clients viennent avec des packages, ils ne voient rien, et ne disent rien...
Appalling set up at Pinhal. Its a pretty course but very badly overplayed. Every tee time was booked on 8 minute slots, the course was full of groups many of whom could not play but just gradually chopped the course up in front of us. We were paired with two complete beginners and struggled to play in just over 5 hours. Like alot of the Vilamoura courses they are more associated with stag parties and groups of non golfers than anyone wanting a decent game of golf. Greens were running at 8.5 (same as UK courses in about April) , tees badly hacked up, fairways not too bad. Definitely worth avoiding.
An enjoyable golf course but was very busy, we stated on the first and were first out, when we came round to the 10th we had to wait for 2 groups to go out before we could carry on with the back nine. Courtesy bus from the hotel worked well.
Again another excellent day. Enjoyed Pinhal more than millennium. Definitely coming back to play here again.
Fair golf course, accuracy from the tee is needed. Maintenance is good.
Very interesting and pleasant course Always difficulty with shuttle for our group (24)
Très bien, parcours très varié, bien entretenu, et très bon accueil au desk. Le restaurant eggkement très bien
Nice course, no problem with booking, nice staff.
Little hectic at the first hole. Confirmed tee time was 9.00am. Club booked the tee time 8.42(?) Other than that super nice golf day. Course in good shape.
Brilliant course staff where brilliant.
Very enjoyable and what made it more enjoyable was that my Son and I got out earlier than booked and there was no one in front of us or behind us and we were round Pinhal in 3 and 1/2 hours.
Slow play throughout the round and ended up finishing on the 16th. Too slow and round taking too long. Bunkers not in great condition which maybe from being over played and too many stones in the sand. Overall disappointing
This is a tough course. Many of the courses here are tree lined, but this one has strategically placed fairway and green based trees which makes you go to the other side, where you find a strategically placed bunker! The fairways were green and well maintained as were the greens. An enjoyable test of golf, particularly if playing from the back tees (which I wasn’t). Value for money too.
Very busy ,to many people playing.
The course is in great condition and staff were very friendly. Only criticism is that the holes were quite similar all the way around but overall a great afternoon spent on a super track.
Outstanding condition! Fairways, greens, tee boxes where all immaculate, great golf course and great price
Nice course and reasonable value for money. The front 9 are not dissimilar to the Old Course.
Very enjoyable day.excellent condition of course.
Great course, love the clubhouse, buggies prices are extortionate though
I thought the course was in good condition. The staff were friendly and helpful. My only comment would be regarding the halfway house closing at 12 noon. Though to be fair we were informed it would close at 12 but unfortunately we ran out of water and there is not a buggy bar so no means of getting refreshments after 12.
Lovely corse in great condition, would definitely recommend as a 1st course to play when playing in Portugal before the real challenges come!
Very good green keepers ! Two much houses surrounding the fairways.....
Magnificent course Very well-maintained golf course We missed being offered club cleaning service
Slow play due to players coming late for their tee off, no course Marshall to speed up play and no tee off at the 10th
Good pro shop staff course ok and good price for buggy
Course was in good order, needs some TLC, too many doglegs, not an enjoyable course to play, met some lovely people from South Africa, so enjoyed the round.
In great condition but I thought it was playing longer than it should
The course was great and the condition very good. The receptionist was not as friendly as the other courses we played. The other staff were fine.
Course in great condition pity it was closing the day after we played it .,,,!!, I know maintenance is necessary but I have never played this course in such good condition
Great course although it would be a hard course to play for a high handicapper. A lot of trees overhanging the fairways.
Great course well maintained Helpful staff. However when I booked on line for twilight golf it allowed me to book from 14:30 onwards but the golf course states that twilight starts from 16:21
course was in very good condition - greens superb - as with the Old Course, price for food and drink let it down
Lovely course with some challenging holes especially the dog leg ones... staff very friendly and responsive
Sadly we are low handicap players and we were paired up with a 28 hcap man and his 48 hcap wife, was a disaster
loved the course - but starter had me playing on my own following a 4 ball! Also, one of the ground staff picked my ball up and ignored my waving to retrieve my ball. Reported the matter to the club reception - unbelieveable
Great facilities and a lovely course. Really enjoyed Pinhal
Golf course 7/10 Difficulty 8/10 (course guide recommended) Service 8/10 Food at clubhouse 6/10
Course is very well maintained and greens in particular are good. A bell system should be used on 10, as it is not possible to see if group in front are out of range. Changing rooms need to be updated, surprisingly basic.
Très beau parcours bien entretenu. Le prix est cette fois-ci plus en relation avec une réalité, me semble-t-il
The third of our 3 round package. All went well again. The course was in good condition and we played without any major holdup to finish inside 4 hours as a four ball. Thanks to TeeTimes who organised our package. I would definitely use the them again.
A great course, love it.
Very playable will include it on our next visit in October.
Mr William Ryan
overall a very good golf course but can be difficult if you do not respect it. nice greens and fairways.
Very enjoyable Friendly staff
Course was in good condition, staff helpful in pro shop and Carr area. Possibly more expensive for its quality.
It rained very heavily, so had to get a rain voucher
Lovely Course and great facilities
The Course of Penihal is in my opion greater than the Old Course. In good shape and a litte bit tricky. The greens were harder to read. A lot of english players. If they are in a group it is not so nice- loud and a bit drunken!
Absolutely brilliant time apart from the rain , the club and course in great condition with a great friendly atmosphere
Course was in good condition. Joined with 2 good players and enjoyed their company.
Everything was perfect
Fast response and everything went smooth. Thank you
Pinhal is very good value for money and we will play it again. The greens were in great condition.
lovely course but course too crowded with very high handicap players (36 and more)
One of the best in Algarve for me.
Thos course was in a good condition.
A fantastic golf-course. I played it the first time, but we will come back surely.
breite Fairways, viele viele viele Bäume gut zu laufen auch die Wege zwischen den Löchern.
A very nice golf cours. Perfect conditions..
The place was for the season in a very good condition, good driving range, friendly and helpful staff, the game on this course gave us a lot of pleasure, we will come back. The terrace of the club restaurant is just the right place to finish a nice round.
Great facilities. Interesting course layout and good condition.
Lovely course as ever, good challenge for all grades of golfers
Course was in excellent condition when we played in February. Enjoyed playing there
Lovely course, played it many times
I’ve played here last year, as well and I found this was the BEST, then. I have to say everything is mostly in the same situation, just the greenfees paid I felt more expensive, despite were aerated fairways. Overall, a good experience, for a little bit too overrated price.
Course in good condition I love the challenge that Pinhal presents.
As in Laguna, although this GC is a little bit more difficult ( BUT I LIKE IT MORE ! ), I would say : everything was today EXACTLY I have expected. Here everything was good even on Oceanico period, the changes are not so dramatically. Everything is just fine, you CAN COUNT ON THAT ! Golf course design is ROBERT TRENT JONES, No words anymore. The restaurant, although more expensive than last year still have the same quality, the Pro SHOP TEAM and facilities are very Ok. The GC hasn’t buggy bar on Wheels, but has a fix one at hole 14, as far as I remember. Yes, I am sure I will play with the same pleasure tomorrow as well, despite the weather !
Not so fast greens
Really enjoyed the course. Not very difficult with nice wide fairways and not too much water. Carts were 30 euros and were nice but No gps. Snack at/toilet accessible from 3 holes. Ham and cheese sandwich ok at 4.50 E. Only complaint was pace of play. Started at 13:57 and we just made 18 holes before dark (mid Feb)
Every Thinge was ok.
Good round of golf. Course not busy so got round in 3 and a quarter hours. Course well looked after and fast greens.
Great course. Tricky greens. Really enjoyed the challenge.
Great golf course in very good condition, lived up completely to my expectations. Not too crowded, very green grass for January, fast greens/nice fairways and nice atmosphere in the clubhouse & at tee off.
Great course. We loved to play it. Only minus is in front nine that toilet is tooo far away.
Der Platz macht seinem Namen alle Ehre. Pinien säumen an fast allen Bahnen die Fairways. Akkurates Spiel ist vonnöten, sonst stoppen die dichten Pinien den Ballflug abrupt. Longhitter sind nicht gefragt, um einen guten Score zu spielen. Das präzise Spiel ist gefragt. Die 4 Par-3- Löcher sind gut zu erreichen.
Quick and efficient and easy to book
Very good. In better condition than the last time we played this course
Very enjoyable and very good condition
IT was a Nice course, greens were good ander enjoyed it.
Coursebis nice... the Area of the tees is not in so nice condition. Fairways and Greens are ok. PIN positions were strange Today.
Exellent course, Nice staff.
Overall top quality service for all the locations booked through teetimes. Many thanks for your assistance.
pinhal was as always good
In great condition and having played in numerous times its one of my favourites. Narrowish fairways and strategically placed cork trees only add to the enjoyment.
Good as always. Friendly team at the course. Course very good condition considering how much use it gets.
Nice course, well maintained, and friendly service. A pleasant experience. best regards, marc
Golf course was in great shape, very well managed. Enjoyed that we were not rushed.
Great game at Pinhal, Filipia at teetimes.pt has been very helpful, booked us another course at very short notice, will deffo use this company again.
Outstanding golf course.
Very nice course and clubhouse. The only issue we had was the difference in time taken to complete each 9. The overall time for 18 was ok but the time taken to complete the 2nd 9 was nearly an hr longer than the 1st 9.
Slow 4 ball infront. Course marshalls didnt say anything to them. They lost 3 holes of ones infront
Course was busy, but the buggies were available and the buggy master was very helpful. Starter was in fine form and seemed happier than we have ever seen him! Course was in lovely condition and was a pleasure to play. Food in the clubhouse again was very good.
Average course with again poor tees and fairways not as good as in the past.
Good layout. Great condition. Very enjoyable.
It was great, no problem at all, thank you very much
Course in good condition and provided a good challenge.
Again our group enjoyed this course. The beauty of staying in Villamoura is that there are so many golf courses in the vicinity.
This course was very busy and took a long time to get around
Absolutely loved this course, well maintained, played with a fabulous couple and wanted to go round again we had enjoyed it so much
Very enjoyable experience even if the golf was slow
Lovely course, really enjoyable
great golf course
Played Pinhal a long time ago and condition wasn't good - but much improved and would play it again.
No halfway house or refreshment buggy. Course in good condition.
Course much better than expected
Apart from the very unwelcoming staff in the shop/check in area this we had a great experience and the course was in super condition, the greens were excellent, quickest of all that we played and probably the fairest in terms of true reads/breaks. We will definitely play Pinhal again but the course doesn't have any real memorable holes and at times feels very very long, and is a bit ''up and down'' in places...we played off the Yellow tees and there were a good number of holes over 450 yds, par 4, which felt even longer with tight fairways!
Pinhal golf course. Is in excellent condition. Yesterday the greens were fantastic. Soft enough to take a good shot in and leave a generous pitch mark. But smooth and accurate for good putting. The fairways were in good shape too. This is a very tight course with tree lined fairways so good accurate driving is the order of the day. One to play.
Great golf course!
Very enjoyable , course in good condition- on course staff excellent
Usual good condition
Pinhal is lovely a great test some fantastic holes, well worth the money for a buggy as there are a few hills and you have to leave the course a few times crossing local residential roads, I have walked it in the past but its a bit of a stretch
One complaint though was Pinhal. The day was extremely hot. At no pint did any drink carts come round, the half way hut was closed before 5pm and when we got to the bar they refused to sell us drinks as it was too late. We were very dehydrated as a result.
A difficult day for most, with temps in the high 30's. But the course was in very good condition and the greens were in fine form. A true test of golf with tight tree lined fairways and some interesting holes.
Like this course, bit of a challenge but good layout and some really testing holes
Again another great course, plenty of trees to make you think about what shot to play rather than just smashing it as hard as you can
Our first visit, will definitely play it again and recommend to others
Tight and tree lined fairways. Better for the lower handicap players
John Munn and Hugh Hegan
Second best rated by our party.
Enjoyed the course my least favourite of the four but non the less very enjoyable.
Love this course, have played it many times and will play it again and again.
Very nice course excellent greens
Well laid out and maintained course, very good staff especially Bruno in buggy shed
This course is always a hard challenge even if you are playing well. Driving accuracy is key but also keeping your longer shots straight.
Great condition, extremely helpful.
OK - overpriced services
Well presented tight course.
Pinhal is a beautiful and very challenging golf course. However this is where we were most affected by over booking and pace of play. Having afforded 6 hours to fit golf in before flying home in the afternoon, time shouldn't have been a problem. However after playing only 16 holes in 5 hours and 30 minutes, we had to abandon our round and missed out on 2 holes. Would recommend anybody booking here to get the earliest possible tee time before the course becomes too busy. I believe this would have been our favourite course in the Algarve had it not been for the above problems, which is a shame
Superb course & facilities!
Played twilight & managed to get started ahead of the booked tee time, so always worth arriving early & asking if you can play before you're booked time. Course in decent condition, but the bar was shut by the time we arrived back to the clubhouse and they're missing out on business ?!
Course in very good condition, enjoyed the round and company of other Chez Carlos members. Concerned initally that a buggy would not be available, they were waiting for buggies to come in from earlier in the day.
As always a magnificent course
Probably the easiest of the courses we played and a great choice for my wife's first game of golf in Portugal
Pinhal again was a lovely course to play we arrived a little earlier than needed but played the driving range to fill in time we started on time and this golf course didn't disappoint great tees and fast greens with wonderful fairways in pristine condition again my pet hate was please include buggies with green fees to avoid slow play
Good course, we played that three times and it was nice
Would not Player again
a bit expensive for the quality...good acceptable 5.5 out of 10
course great weather rotten
? Tim Amor
We only managed 9 holes because we got rained off. A much better course than I had remembered it to be. Good value.
Nice course with similar characteristics than the Old Course but less memorable.
Very good value for money.
Another good course
Good. Twilight round start at 14.00 hrs just gave us enough light to finish. Course very fair.
reasonable quality for money, perhaps somewhat improved compare to earlier years
Pinhal was the we played on the day that we arrived. The greens were slow and in need of a cut, it was hard to get to pace of them right as they all seemed to be different. There was a lot of work taking place around the course and this will only enhance the experience. Of the 4 courses we played this was the one I would have to consider revisiting it again.
Fantastic course great condition and nice staff
Very good all round service
This was the most pleasant experience, even they don't have proper pitching/chipping green facilities.
Disappointed here fairways not the best and layout for the first 7holes was like ground hog day. It did get better on the back nine.
The pine trees require acurrate shots.
Liked the course although it was busy. We liked the clubhouse and the service very much. Practice facilities good.
Good as always. Staff excellent.
Although, only some waterhazards in course, Pinhal was interresting with rather narrow fairways ! Also in good condition.
Good course, not as challenging as the other Oceanico courses. Should be cheaper to play here.
My personal favourite as it is quite picturesque and similar to an English golf course. The facilities were again excellent.
Course in better condition than Laguna and Millenium however for me not as interesting. Greens at Pinhal better than all the other courses.
Tee areas a bit rough but otherwise enjoyable
Excellent day on Pinhal once again.
Very busy. Too busy. Had 40 delay teeing off. Greens were very average.
Loved Pinhal. Course was in great shape and very challening. People very nice.
Great in expensive course
Nice course greens ran true despite the obvious heavy usage.
Course not in great condition and staff in restauranct and shop a bit rude.
Good condition and better than when we played it last time, about 4 years ago. The guys want to return.
Not played this for a year or two and was great to be back and see the course back in top condition
Nice course with, good layout and test, greens slow
we used the clubhouse on a number of occasions for meals as we were staying nearby, the staff were absolutely superb.
Marshals too attentive always checking up actually felt intimidated.
Adrian Fraser Jones
Good course and in very good condition
Good condition, enjoyable course
Excellent - exceeded expectations
Very Good. Greens were not the best we had played on.
A more open course than the old course but works its way through some lovely villa properties adding plenty of out of bounds fences. Was in great condition and even hollow tining on 2 or 3 greens did not spoil the experience. Again not much water but plenty of other hazards to keep it interesting.
We enjoyed this course very much probably due to the lack of sand traps and would certainly play it again.
As the name suggests there are lots of tree-lined fairways some narrow but a lovely course to play.
My favourite course, not the most difficult but a good test of golf for a medium to high handicap.
Good condition, no issues
the course was well, but the service in the restaurant could be better.
Nice course - good condition and good value
Premier parcours effectué, donc, bonne appréciation: qualité fairways et greens comme les autres: excellente.
Jorge was fantastic and very quick to respond.
Had not played here before and ended up playing 2 rounds. All very enjoyable
Condition of the course was ok. The only negative comment I have is about the rudeness of some of the on course staff. My party was ''told off'' by one individual for starting the back 9 too early. There was no good reason for this, we were not playing exceptionally fast and we did not interfere with other players. I would be reluctant to use Pinhal in future.
Ok, a little bit slow but after 9 holes much better.
I recommend it.
Lovely course and a really enjoyable round. Plenty of trees to mean you need to keep it straight off the tee. Fairways and greens in good shape - great time had by all.
ADRIAN FRASER JONES
good service at course
Save for the drives between holes and the more built up feel to the course this played as well as as The Old Course.
Really interesting front 9 through pleasant refreshing tree lined areas with some amazing villas to pass by, contrasting back 9 good to develop long shots. Laguna/Millennium share a lovely patio area for relaxing over a long drink as you watch others on the Laguna 9th and Millennium 18th
Starter did great job explaining details not shown in the map on the scorecard - where are road crossings, etc. Nice course - refreshing elevation changes. Worth returning.
Good clubhouse and facilities more mature course
Golfcourse in poor condition At 3 fairways no grass !!!!
very nice course, fast greens, friedly personal
Normally we play herebecause our accomodation is nearby and the course is a good test.One green out of commission Repairs being carried out We had to start at the tenth due to the course being very busy bECAUSE OF THIS WE STRUGGLED TO COMPLETE OUR ROUND IN DAYLIGHT
Empfang und Starter sehr freundlich. Golfplatz in sehr gutem Zustand.
This being one of the less expensive courses gives a wrong impression. It was a very nice experience and certainly one we will play again.
The best of the 3 at vilamoura that we played......tight but in great condition despite some heavy rain. All staff very nice and pleasant and assisted in making this a great trip.
Great course. We got more than we expected
Golf course and service all good
Best of the three. Staff excellent. Facilities excellent.
Superb condition and some very interesting holes.
similar experience to previous day at Laguna-a slow group tee-ed off in front of us at 10th and again ruined an enjoyable days golf. I asked for an explanation in pro shop and was told they had let group in front thru. - I do not believe this to be the case as it happened on the 10th beside the club house.
Mrs. Mary Stephanie Liddell
Liked the old fashionedness of this course. Tight fairways with loads of cork trees. Once again staff etc. very helpful. Bar etc. very busy so didn't go in for drink/snack so can't comment on that.
Fair, course not in great condition
Very difficult, but wonderful course. Friendly ladies at the reception desk. Come back and play here again.
Good although greens were poor.
better than expected
Second only to The Old Course in the beauty stakes!
great facilities but the course seemed a little unkept to use. A great layout though and a decent test.
The course was in great condition and the staff on and off the course provided a relaxed and friendly service
Course looked a bit tired
Chez Carlos Golf Society
It was high time to return back to Pinhal especially with the Oceanico Easter Special green fee rates in force and buggies at just €15.00. Particular mention has to be made to the course which was in great condition especially when there was some criticism of its awhile ago. Some of the group had not played it for several years - we were all impressed. Blustery and changeable conditions today but at least there is some shelter on this one compared to Laguna. It was a great days golf and we returned back to the spirtual home of the Society the Chez Carlos Bar & Restaurant which had reopened the last week.
Chez Carlos Golf Society
Turkey and trimmings were on hold as an ensemble of x8 players eager to make the best of the fine weather gathered at Pinhal for the Society's Christmas Day Competition. All other Oceanico courses were closed as part of the ongoing winter maintenance programme so it was also an opportunity to find out if the rumours about the poor condition of Pinhal were true. I am pleased to report they were not. Greens were fine though rather slow to what we have been use to recently. New buggy paths have been laid down as well as an extensive prunning of the pines trees thus allowing more light onto the course. All in all it was good condition for winter.
