Kevin Lea 2023-09-26
Course in excellent condition and staff friendly and helpul

Martin Meyers 2023-09-25
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

Martin Kendall 2023-09-22
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

Iain Johnstone 2023-09-21
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 !

Graham Lucas 2023-09-20
Course in OK condition, greens slow but receptive

Graham Lucas 2023-09-18
Good condition

John Kerr 2023-09-17

Branko Krmpotic 2023-09-16
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.

Nigel Raby 2023-09-10
Its very long Play was very slow 5 hours for round

Russell Jones 2023-09-10
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.

Concubhar Casey 2023-09-04
Lovely course. Very well kept, greens were great. Par 3’s were excellent. Gotta be accurate off the tee box. Lots of mature trees.

Hefti Andreas 2023-08-14

James McLaughlin 2023-08-07
Course was great. Staff in the clubhouse were very pleasant when we went in for a refreshment after the game.

Lars Fins 2023-07-26
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.

Conor McCloskey 2023-07-18
It’s a great course and using teetimes is easy

Julie Cobley 2023-07-13
Green very good

Pops Larkin 2023-07-13
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.

Justin Harper 2023-07-13
A tricky tree lined track in great condition!

Noel Dempsey 2023-07-12
Lovely course and in very good condition for July. Glad we had a buggy

Lars Fins 2023-07-02
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.

Darren Lloyd 2023-06-18
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.

Simon Burford 2023-06-15
Only did nine holes very slow play from the group in front and marshal didn’t talk to them ?

Declan Quinn 2023-06-12
Best course out of the 3 we played

Val Mc Mahon 2023-05-27
Once again a very enjoyable game of golf over a course in great condition.

Ian Holland 2023-05-26
Very Good

Andrew Brackett 2023-05-22
I booked our tee time/transfer with the help of telma the service was fist class and both the course and transfer was superb.

Lee Rutland 2023-05-19
Very slow but lovely course

Craig Frame 2023-05-19
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

Carine Bestenheider 2023-05-17

Steven Bow 2023-05-15
Nice and easy with no issues!

Wayne King 2023-05-13
Very good

Mrs Meyer 2023-05-12
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'

James Brooks 2023-05-05
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

Sam daniels 2023-05-04
Amazing staff. Amazing food. Great pace of play, 100% return

John Coates 2023-05-04
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.

Glenn Flaxmer 2023-05-03
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

Gerard Kinsella 2023-04-29
Good course tight fairways

Per Lokken 2023-04-26
Very good

Makarius Kitima 2023-04-21
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

Jean-Louis Thiébaut 2023-04-14
A bit disappointed on the first 9 holes because they quite looked the same

Renault Sage 2023-04-11
Love it!

Martin Punch 2023-04-09
Pace of play was excellent at Pinhal which is in great consition

Winfried Arens 2023-04-06
Nice challenging course

Denis ovens 2023-04-03
same as always 100 percent

Clive Sims 2023-04-02
Everything went very well. The course was good, greens were a little slow.

Tracy Elbro 2023-03-27
Great course

Uno Sand 2023-03-22
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.

Julie Roles 2023-03-20
Had a great day

Jon Erik Børresen 2023-03-18
Very good

Magdalena Petrokova 2023-03-18
I expected at least bottle of wather in the rented buggy.

Christopher Baty-Symes 2023-03-18
Fantastic course

Truls Jakobsen 2023-03-13
The course was in good conditions. Fairways good and same for the greens. Very friendly staff at the reception and at the carrymasters

Dennis Meredith 2023-03-12
Lovely course and clubhouse always worth the visit

Paul Kelly 2023-03-05
Like all Dom Pedro courses, money urgently needed for tired club house. Greens a joy. Burger wonderful.

Ronni Clayton 2023-03-02
Both days most enjoyable

Mrs Catherine Hinds 2023-02-27
Balls for practice too expensive

IAN HARTIS 2023-02-17
Very good condition

Phil Appleby 2023-02-16
Great course, in super condition.

Stephen Maggs 2023-02-15
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.

Jeffrey Davis 2023-02-04
Great course in great condition. Definitely worth a visit.

Paul Squires 2023-01-22

Tim Newton 2023-01-20
Extremely enjoyable

Pit Hoffmann 2023-01-17
Beautiful golf course in excellent condition. Friendly staff. Not too crowdy as we were low season.

Frank Haidinger 2023-01-13
Same experience as during the last years. Tee boxes, fairways and greens in good condition..

Michal Horak 2023-01-08

François De Witte 2023-01-06
Nice golf course. The trolley was not good.

Roy Adkins 2022-12-10
Unfortunately I had to cancel . I had great help in rebooking for next year

Tomas Daul 2022-12-01
Perfect course maintenance, big improve in last few years

Christopher Fisher 2022-11-24
Great course, challenging!!

Piotr D?browiecki 2022-11-22
A decent golf course. Many holes look the same - flat and between the trees. Turning left or right.

Mike Sykes 2022-11-17
Great condition

David Paul Gough 2022-11-16
The course was overpriced considering the poor condition of the course especially the tees.

John Owen 2022-11-10
Excellent afternoons booking

glynis cook 2022-11-08
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.

Ronnie Turner 2022-11-07
Nice course, a lot of pitch marks on greens, signposting could be better

Lee Oliver 2022-11-05
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

Wulf Viola 2022-11-05

Didier Becholey 2022-10-31
Très bien

Barbara McGuinness 2022-10-29
Lovely course back 9 exceptional

Paraic Hanley 2022-10-28
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.

Per Lauritsen 2022-10-26
Ok course, good service in clubhouse.

Norman Howie 2022-10-26
Best of the 3 courses played with regard to course presentation (playing conditions and standard).

Eamon McCay 2022-10-25
Was rained off ,I got a voucher and played Sunday ,very much appreciated,course was excellent,it has improved in recent years

Mark Schmitz 2022-10-24
Every year we´re playing this course and every time its really nice

the golf restaurant is nice and is open till 7 pm

Very enjoyable round of golf! Challenging course!

Paul Remorini 2022-10-17
Fantastic. Course was in great condition and we both enjoyed it.

Donald MacLiver 2022-10-15
Good course.

Cliff Morgan 2022-10-11
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!

Mark Bennet 2022-10-10
Nice course

Carlos Verhelst 2022-10-10
excellent course

Ben Miles 2022-10-07
Great Experience very easy

EWAN MACLEOD 2022-10-07
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.

Stephanie 2022-09-27
Very nice Golf course in good condition. Little bit expensive.

Steve Carter 2022-09-25
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.

Debbie Wilson 2022-09-23
Food was very acceptable and reasonably priced. Check in easy, golf a little slow but understand it was full

Mike Sykes 2022-09-20
Excellent course and we teed off early,

Dave Bevington 2022-09-12
Excellent sign in, no hassle whatsoever

Peter Crockett 2022-09-11
Love the location & the clubhouse environment. Course in great condition. Only disappointment was that there was no drink buggy in service this year

Yvonne Schneider 2022-09-08
Some difficult holesStaff very friendly . Some of the paths from Green to tee could be better

Nils Taawo 2022-08-31
Very nice championchip course

Graeme Cox 2022-08-28
Very good. Fun course & a fair challenge for all level of golfer.

Lee Godfrey 2022-08-25
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

Matthew Williams 2022-08-24
Pinhal Staff very helpful

Julie Cobley 2022-08-20
Good course

Niall O'Shea 2022-08-15
Great day on a demanding course but the Tee Boxes were not up to their normal standard

Julie Cobley 2022-08-10
Very very slow , caused serious back up and late tee time .

Graham Sims 2022-08-09
Course in good condition, greens a bit slow. Reception welcoming and pace of play good

Croockewit 2022-08-07
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.

Brian hayes 2022-08-05
Overall fine

Matthew Astall 2022-08-04

Ninian Havermans 2022-07-21
A little bit expensive course. Very green (good) but normal price for buggy is 50 euro (bad, to expensive)

Michael Moen 2022-06-20
Great day! Nice maintained corse

Christopher Wylie 2022-06-19
Played here last Friday 17/06/22 what an outstanding course first class service from start to finish would highly recommend it.

Paul Quin 2022-06-17
We got round in good time. The course is presented very well and provides a good test of shot making.

simon mcelroy 2022-06-16
Ver good, feel the price is expensive compared to other courses round.

Per Lokken 2022-06-15
Good condition

Paul Topham 2022-06-15
A good course but in need of some attention around the course and paths.

Dean Tipper 2022-06-15
Lovely golf course. Greens and fairways in great condition. Took just over 3 hours to complete round. ??

Les Docherty 2022-06-14

Paul Miller 2022-06-14
Great course that the whole group enjoyed.

Michael Dolton 2022-06-11
Best bunkers outside UK I have played.

Dan Wheeler 2022-06-08
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.

Martin Purdy 2022-05-30
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.

Ian Price 2022-05-29

James Wood 2022-05-27
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

Mark Grant 2022-05-19
Great Service all round with no issues!

Wayne King 2022-05-16
Very good

Michael Leahy 2022-05-12
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.

Keith Brennan 2022-05-12
Great golf course with very helpful staff. Would Hinckley recommend.

Robert Purcell 2022-05-08
A fantastic service . Keep up the good work

Cathy Proto 2022-05-08
Course in excellent condition. Buggy cost, at 20 euros more than at Vale do Lobo, is very expensive at DP Vilamoura courses.

Issy Stewart 2022-04-28
Service very good but felt the course looked a bit tired in places

Niall O'Shea 2022-04-26
Very enjoyable from start to finish, staff were super & course was in good condition

Eleanor Hunter 2022-04-24
Lovely course. Enjoyed it

Gavin McDonald 2022-04-23
They Wouldn’t Offer Another Day To Switch Tee Time When Weather Was Bad Yesterday Not Very Helpfu

Lee barrass 2022-04-15
Booked 5 rounds with Alexandre and Jorge, great price and service. Will definitely use again the next time we go on a golfing trip.

Uno Sand 2022-04-14
In good condition and fine greens.

Ian Permain 2022-04-09
Course could have been in better condition

Claudia Haussener 2022-04-05
Nice course

Ronny Krogh 2022-03-28
Builing inside need to be more modernised same with tables and chairs but service was good.

Dennis Meredith 2022-03-28
Lovely course, in good condition and very friendly staff

Andreas Albath 2022-03-27
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.

Hervé Clément 2022-03-20
Nice golf course No more electrical caddy in the morning(all reserved for big group)

Mr Jonathan Lloyd 2022-03-12
Enjoyed playing the course.

Wayne Gary Malouin 2022-03-05
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

Mark Necker 2022-03-05
very nice course best condition i've seen it in. Plenty of grass on the fairways and greens running well.

Tarja Sandell 2022-03-01
Beautiful course, greens in great condition and the name is more than justified

Neil de Goede 2022-02-26
Difficult and great course

Krishna Padayachee 2022-02-23
Great test. Small greens and in vraat condition. If you can shoot a score here, you can play golf

Thomas Hoering 2022-02-19
Good condition.Driving Range balls too costy

Amanda 2022-02-19
Very easy booking and Marisa is fabulous

Jeff Bull 2022-02-11
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.

Graham Paver 2022-01-26
Pleasant staff Nice course

Claire Howells 2022-01-23
Great organised event by George good course and great company

Liz Scully 2022-01-16
Good course in good condition

Gary Wills 2022-01-13
The best range locally also a nice chipping green and putting green. The course was in decent condition.

Neil Davies 2021-12-14
Enjoy the course but poor cousin in terms of maintenance - particularly the tees

Pascal Plichta 2021-12-12
Un parcours agréable, ?' entretien est très bon,les greens très roulants. L' acceuil est très amical au proshop, ainsi qu'au bar.

Ian Gould 2021-12-09
A good day - course condition quite good for the time of year

Erik Lillsjö 2021-11-26
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.

Per Lauritsen 2021-11-22
Very Sattisfied

onkenhout 2021-11-21
Pinhal is a very nice and money worth golfcourse

Fiona downes 2021-11-18
Slow needs a marshal on course

Hervé Maillard 2021-11-16

Max Davies 2021-11-15

Mark Schmitz 2021-11-12
really nice

Martin Punch 2021-11-09
Greens need more attention but overall enjoyable.

Anne Nikolaisen 2021-11-04
Nice course. I always play this course when I am in Vilamoura

Didier Becholey 2021-10-31
Parfait malgré un peu de pluie merci pour l’organisation

Didier Becholey 2021-10-30
Très bien

Sigge Linden 2021-10-29

Keith Bowden 2021-10-28
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.

Dan Morgan 2021-10-23

Charlotte Casson 2021-10-19
Helpful and friendly and enjoyed playing the course.

Jon Raw 2021-10-17
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.

Dale walton 2021-10-16
Telma has been great. Anything we needed answered she was happy to help. Always provided us with all the information we needed. Thankyou

Mike Smith 2021-10-13
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.

Tony Sexton 2021-10-12
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.

Billy O´Reagan 2021-10-08

Helen Mullins 2021-10-07
Still lovely course to play. Need to he hitting straight!!!

Dan Bodalen 2021-10-03
The golf Course was very golf. But the staff at the restaurant was vet poor //Danne

Roger Millington 2021-10-02
Very enjoyable need to get a good drive away avoiding the trees.

Richard Grove 2021-09-30
All very good

steve wren 2021-09-27
played before nice course and good value

Adrian 2021-09-26
Very friendly reception staff and course in excellent condition.

Richard Grove 2021-09-24
Lovely course in great condition. Most enjoyable

brian haystead 2021-09-23
Good course good condition tight tree lined course must be accurate. Staff very friendly and helpful will play again

Maurice Rogers 2021-09-21
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.

Laurence Roberts 2021-09-17
Great course and a great day :)

James Mullen 2021-09-09
Best course I have played on so far. Enjoyed it very much

Peter Kuleczko 2021-09-07
Great course, conditions and facilities. Would highly recommend

Martin Punch 2021-09-06
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.

Helen Pettitt 2021-08-11
Always lovely to play vilamoura Pinhal. The staff are really friendly, and the course was in lovely condition

Chris Ray 2021-06-24

Paul Gawman 2021-06-02
Excellent service from all concerned the food was really good and the course is in fantastic condition.

Philippe Pineau 2021-05-23
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.

Mark Hutch 2021-05-23
Disappointed the bar was not open afterwards.

Glenn Flaxmer 2021-01-25
I feel Pinhal has improved a lot over the past few years, enjoyable course at reasonable cost.

Ian McKnight 2021-01-25
Very friendly and a great course to play. Greens were lovely.

Martin Punch 2021-01-25
Very Good Course in veery good condition but Courses around Vilamoura are Expensive when you include the cost of a Buggy.

Dr. Klaus Mittelbach 2020-12-29
Everything well organised, course in good shape

John Gilchrist 2020-12-27
Tough challenge but good condition.

John Gilchrist 2020-12-06

John Gilchrist 2020-11-12
Course in good condition and staff very efficient and friendly.

Greens and course in excellent condition

Simon D Turner 2020-09-28
Great to see Pinhal back in super condition. Clubhouse terracing much improved., Never seen the course so quiet.

John Harris 2020-08-26
Relatively expensive compared with other equally good or better Chez Carlos venues.

Joaquin Gonzalez 2020-07-22
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 2020-03-15
Absolutely perfect, staff couldn’t be friendlier and course was gorgeous, great day

Paul Corker 2020-03-03
The day was good. Excellent staff. Great experience

Dennis Meredith 2020-02-29
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

Truls Jakobsen 2020-02-25
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.

David Spicer 2020-02-18
Great course in great condition

I always enjoy Pinhal, a lot of trees,. Nice course

Britta Ries 2019-11-05
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.

Anne Wood 2019-11-02
We really enjoyed our round, course in good condition.

John 2019-10-17
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

Graham Ellerton 2019-10-15
Excellent course. Well marshalled.

Neill Richardson 2019-10-14
Excellent course, but very busy

The staff were very helpful and the course was in excellent condition. I thoroughly enjoyed my round

Derek Richardson 2019-10-09
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 2019-10-08
Better of the two courses we played

David Baynes 2019-10-02
Simple to arrange and pay for golf. Transfers included

Emeline 2019-09-30

John Roche 2019-09-24
Nice course but too many groups out. Long times waiting on Tee boxes.

Olligator 2019-09-19
Schöner und gepflegter Kurs ohne viel spektakuläres. Für jedermann gut spielbar. Wenig Wasser viele Bunker.

Kevin McDermott 2019-09-17
Really enjoyed the experience. Definitely would play this course again

Andy Jones 2019-09-16
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.

Steve Graham 2019-09-13
Very enjoyable, but challenging Course was in great condition, particularly the greens

ronan oconnor 2019-09-12

Graham Wilkinson 2019-07-15
Staff good and friendly, food good but pricey, course is good and has improved greatly over the years

James Love 2019-07-11
Not as busy as other courses so we were able to play at our own pace.

Christine McGregor 2019-07-08
nice clubhouse, a short tight course with slower greens

Christopher Drew 2019-07-01
Absolutely fine, thanks

Clive Plummer 2019-06-25
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!

John Holt 2019-06-22
As with Millennium over priced for what it is!

Trym Anderson 2019-06-19
This is a good course !

Janice McDonald 2019-06-17
Course in great condition. Lovely evening

Pascal Wegman 2019-06-17
Could only drink one round after the course... which we experienced not friendly. Flight itself was Nice! Almost 18 holes played.

Mr Rafferty 2019-06-13
Very good course

Breuer 2019-06-11
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 2019-06-05
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.

Barry Keane 2019-06-01
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.

Fallow 2019-05-29
Very happy with the service we received when booking golf

Adrien Vancostenoble 2019-05-29
very good

Maurice Rogers 2019-05-23
The course was in good condition but the pace of play was slow.

Judith Tolcher 2019-05-19
A lovely round of golf this morning.

Christopher Priest 2019-05-17
Fantastic course, pleasant staff. Great service using the shuttle service

Tony Coombs 2019-05-16
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.

Nigel Pomphrey 2019-05-15
On time and coarse in very good condition really enjoyable

David Eirian Lewis 2019-05-14
Great course and facilites

Timo Lehto 2019-05-08
We liked most this course. The undulating fairways framed by pines made us feel like home

Gary Wakeham 2019-05-07
Perfect beautiful course very friendly service

Kjell Baudin 2019-05-02
Excellent service at Pinhal!

Andrew Toner 2019-05-02
heaven, in my element,

Michael O'Neill 2019-04-29
Course in great condition and buggies reasonably priced at 25 euro. Definitely be back.

Steve Saxelby 2019-04-28
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

Yrjo Wichmann 2019-04-28
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.

James Bowmer 2019-04-26
Beautiful course

John Coates 2019-04-24
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.

Darryl Williamson 2019-04-24
Another good course

Mark Schmitz 2019-04-23
everything fine

Vermeire Patrick 2019-04-21
Nice to play back on this course but very crowdy...

Robert Lundberg 2019-04-21
The greens little too slow

Janice Mcdonald 2019-04-17
Very enjoyable day with very friendly people, Would like to have has some other lady golfers.

David Lilley 2019-04-16
excellent course, facilities and staff.

Hervé Van Overtvelt 2019-04-16
Beautiful golfcourse. With a lot of typical trees. Buggy was not driving well so after 9 holes we had to change it.

Anne Seabrook 2019-04-12
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.

Martin Punch 2019-04-11
Course in good condition. Enjoyable to Play. Beware of ball staying up in trees. Reception & Course staff very pleasant and helpful.

Will Evenden 2019-04-10

Enjoyable day on a nice course, not to hard, and a fairly easy walk

Kevin Slee 2019-03-12
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

David Barry 2019-03-08

Barbara Beer 2019-03-06
Pinhal although not my favourite course is well worth a visit .. Enjoyed the course and clubhouse.

Hochfilzer Helmut 2019-03-01
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 ??????

Eleanor Tweedie 2019-02-28
All the staff were very helpful and always greeted us with a smile.

Graham Ellerton 2019-02-17
Excellent as always.

Peter Jeffery 2019-02-17
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

Ian Walton 2019-02-16
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

Craig Russell 2019-02-10
Very enjoyable. No complaints.

Tony Williams 2019-02-08
Good course, friendly staff. Pretty quiet

Course is in great condition. Very much enjoyed our round today

DAVID CHAPMAN 2019-01-30
course great to play

Nick Swinhoe 2019-01-16
a reasonable course and value for money at the cost but not up to the quality of other courses in the area.

Marcella Tuttle 2019-01-08
Course was in lovely condition and the breakfast was great. Great value.

Timo Salomaa 2019-01-07
Great course in good condition

Cheng Li Seng 2019-01-07
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.

Timo Salomaa 2018-12-31
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

David Levitus 2018-12-24
Lovely course, good condition

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2018-12-23
Pinhal ist ein schöner Platz. Leiter wurden die Grüns aerifiziert, so dass die Puts nicht gelingen können.

Gerry O Connor 2018-12-10
No fault with the Course but it was not kind to me the day I played it.

Paul Mullen 2018-11-30
Very enjoyable day

Paul Fell 2018-11-30

Hans Ulrich Erne 2018-11-20

Some slowi play leading to hold ups. Course good.

NEIL DUGGAN 2018-10-20
Good condition friendly staff enjoyed the round there , greens putted nicely overall condition of this course very good .

Rebecca Draper 2018-10-18
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.

Paul Micks 2018-10-16
Golf course & driving range was excellent. Staff on first tee & pro shop were very pleasant. No electric trolleys were available to rent.

Didier Becholey 2018-10-14
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...

Jeff Anderson 2018-10-13
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.

Robert Angell 2018-10-13
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.

Eddie concannon 2018-10-13
Again another excellent day. Enjoyed Pinhal more than millennium. Definitely coming back to play here again.

Silke Vojel 2018-10-09
Fair golf course, accuracy from the tee is needed. Maintenance is good.

Serge Levitan 2018-10-08
Very interesting and pleasant course Always difficulty with shuttle for our group (24)

Didier Becholey 2018-10-06
Très bien, parcours très varié, bien entretenu, et très bon accueil au desk. Le restaurant eggkement très bien

CARL HOBBIS 2018-10-05
Nice course, no problem with booking, nice staff.

Oliver Gintzel 2018-10-01
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.

Derek Hough 2018-09-30
Brilliant course staff where brilliant.

Jim McIlwaine 2018-09-24
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.

Gary Wills 2018-09-23
Professionally run.

PJ Courtney 2018-09-20
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

Cheryl Myles 2018-09-20
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.

Kevin Bullock 2018-09-19
Very nice

Jeanette Gribben 2018-09-18
Great course

David Thomas 2018-09-15
Very busy ,to many people playing.

Kieran Roche 2018-09-14
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.

Darren Johnson 2018-09-13
Outstanding condition! Fairways, greens, tee boxes where all immaculate, great golf course and great price

Bill holmes 2018-09-11
Nice course and reasonable value for money. The front 9 are not dissimilar to the Old Course.

Sean Nolan 2018-09-10
Very enjoyable day.excellent condition of course.

Peter Crockett 2018-09-08
Great course, love the clubhouse, buggies prices are extortionate though

Graham Sims 2018-08-28
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.

Ade Fisher 2018-08-13
Lovely corse in great condition, would definitely recommend as a 1st course to play when playing in Portugal before the real challenges come!

Hoang Hang 2018-08-06
Very good green keepers ! Two much houses surrounding the fairways.....

Joaquin Rodriguez 2018-08-03
Magnificent course Very well-maintained golf course We missed being offered club cleaning service

Jason Hoe 2018-07-30
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

Alan Long 2018-07-29
Good pro shop staff course ok and good price for buggy

Seamus Sands 2018-07-24
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.

Tony Coughlan 2018-07-16
In great condition but I thought it was playing longer than it should

John Moule 2018-07-11
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.

Tom Hobson 2018-07-01
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

Mark Rice 2018-06-25
Great course although it would be a hard course to play for a high handicapper. A lot of trees overhanging the fairways.

Stephen 2018-06-19
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

stephen chapman 2018-06-19
Very good

Bob Brown 2018-06-01
course was in very good condition - greens superb - as with the Old Course, price for food and drink let it down

Dax Byrne 2018-05-28
Very good

Andrew Winterburn 2018-05-22
Lovely course with some challenging holes especially the dog leg ones... staff very friendly and responsive

paul woolford 2018-05-20
Sadly we are low handicap players and we were paired up with a 28 hcap man and his 48 hcap wife, was a disaster

David Adams 2018-05-19
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

James bealey 2018-05-17
Great facilities and a lovely course. Really enjoyed Pinhal

Karl clancy 2018-05-16
Golf course 7/10 Difficulty 8/10 (course guide recommended) Service 8/10 Food at clubhouse 6/10

Alan Seery 2018-05-15
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.

Didier Becholey 2018-05-14
Très beau parcours bien entretenu. Le prix est cette fois-ci plus en relation avec une réalité, me semble-t-il

Colin Hammond 2018-05-11
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.

Peter Lovenholm 2018-05-07
A great course, love it.

Kevin Maguire 2018-05-04
Very playable will include it on our next visit in October.

Mr William Ryan 2018-05-03
overall a very good golf course but can be difficult if you do not respect it. nice greens and fairways.

Joe Hennelly 2018-04-29
Very enjoyable Friendly staff

bob Pollock 2018-04-29
Course was in good condition, staff helpful in pro shop and Carr area. Possibly more expensive for its quality.

John Farragher 2018-04-23
It rained very heavily, so had to get a rain voucher

Marc O\'Laoide 2018-04-20
Lovely Course and great facilities

Eoghan 2018-04-18
Beautiful course

Thomas Karr 2018-04-14
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!

David Evans 2018-04-13
Absolutely brilliant time apart from the rain , the club and course in great condition with a great friendly atmosphere

Clive Sims 2018-04-11
Course was in good condition. Joined with 2 good players and enjoyed their company.

Jukka Hilli 2018-04-11
Everything was perfect

Jan-Erik Andersson 2018-04-04
Fast response and everything went smooth. Thank you

Peter Grant 2018-03-29
Pinhal is very good value for money and we will play it again. The greens were in great condition.

Jeroen Broek 2018-03-22
lovely course but course too crowded with very high handicap players (36 and more)

Georg Strasser 2018-03-22
One of the best in Algarve for me.

Jürgen Blickle 2018-03-18
Thos course was in a good condition.

Gregor Langen 2018-03-18
A fantastic golf-course. I played it the first time, but we will come back surely.

Karin Schirocki 2018-03-16
breite Fairways, viele viele viele Bäume gut zu laufen auch die Wege zwischen den Löchern.

Stephanie Guiard 2018-03-15
A very nice golf cours. Perfect conditions..

H. Seifert 2018-03-14
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.

LEE SHIMWELL 2018-03-13
Great facilities. Interesting course layout and good condition.

Andrew Flynn 2018-03-11
Lovely course as ever, good challenge for all grades of golfers

Karen Pearson 2018-03-03
Course was in excellent condition when we played in February. Enjoyed playing there

Debbie Wilson 2018-03-02
Lovely course, played it many times

Danut Munteanu 2018-02-26
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.

Kevin Maguire 2018-02-26
Course in good condition I love the challenge that Pinhal presents.

Danut Munteanu 2018-02-25
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 !

Arve Bekkevar 2018-02-22
Not so fast greens

Joy Aldous 2018-02-16
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)

Georg Fricke 2018-02-10
Every Thinge was ok.

R Draper 2018-02-07
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.

Zeljko Lovkovic 2018-01-16
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.

Timo Salomaa 2018-01-05
Great course. We loved to play it. Only minus is in front nine that toilet is tooo far away.

Axel Heuser 2017-12-30
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.

Caroline Appleby 2017-12-29
Quick and efficient and easy to book

Clive Sims 2017-12-29
Very good. In better condition than the last time we played this course

William Forrest 2017-12-19

Regina Paetzke 2017-11-19

Rainer Albath 2017-11-16
Coursebis nice... the Area of the tees is not in so nice condition. Fairways and Greens are ok. PIN positions were strange Today.

Jan Pedersen 2017-11-08
Exellent course, Nice staff.

Derek Hughes 2017-11-06
Overall top quality service for all the locations booked through teetimes. Many thanks for your assistance.

Nick Ward 2017-11-06
pinhal was as always good

Jim Liddy 2017-10-30
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.

Trevor Simpson 2017-10-28
Good as always. Friendly team at the course. Course very good condition considering how much use it gets.

Marc Luthi 2017-10-26
Nice course, well maintained, and friendly service. A pleasant experience. best regards, marc

Norman Raine 2017-10-25
Golf course was in great shape, very well managed. Enjoyed that we were not rushed.

Peter Riddell 2017-10-20
Great game at Pinhal, Filipia at has been very helpful, booked us another course at very short notice, will deffo use this company again.

Per Lokken 2017-10-20
Ok course

Stephen Fairbrother 2017-10-19
Outstanding golf course.

Eoin Hanrahan 2017-10-18
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.

Maldwyn Hughes 2017-10-18
Slow 4 ball infront. Course marshalls didnt say anything to them. They lost 3 holes of ones infront

Peter Frampton 2017-10-17
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.

Peter Clement 2017-10-14
Average course with again poor tees and fairways not as good as in the past.

James Hallan 2017-10-13
Good layout. Great condition. Very enjoyable.

HOORNAERT 2017-10-13
It was great, no problem at all, thank you very much

Tom Feeney 2017-10-13

Raymond Gray 2017-10-12
Course in good condition and provided a good challenge.

Mick Condren 2017-10-09
Again our group enjoyed this course. The beauty of staying in Villamoura is that there are so many golf courses in the vicinity.

John Roche 2017-10-08
This course was very busy and took a long time to get around

Sharon Watson 2017-10-07
Absolutely loved this course, well maintained, played with a fabulous couple and wanted to go round again we had enjoyed it so much

Gary Wills 2017-10-04
Great value

Mark Clifford 2017-10-02
Very enjoyable experience even if the golf was slow

Paul Woolford 2017-09-23
Lovely course, really enjoyable

Kenny McDonald 2017-09-19
great golf course

Neil Turner 2017-09-18
Played Pinhal a long time ago and condition wasn't good - but much improved and would play it again.

David Collier 2017-08-12
No halfway house or refreshment buggy. Course in good condition.

Elizabeth Halliday 2017-08-05
Course much better than expected

James Wood 2017-08-04
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!

Doug Smith 2017-07-30
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.

MARTYN SMITH 2017-07-23
Great golf course!

Derek Scott 2017-07-16
Very enjoyable , course in good condition- on course staff excellent

Christopher DREW 2017-07-16
Usual good condition

Gary Duke 2017-07-11
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

Daniel Pegram-Mills 2017-06-26
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.

Doug Smith 2017-06-17
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.

Malcolm Ellingham 2017-06-17
Like this course, bit of a challenge but good layout and some really testing holes

tom tothill 2017-06-16
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

Duncan Walker 2017-06-09
Our first visit, will definitely play it again and recommend to others

Robert Harris 2017-06-06
Tight and tree lined fairways. Better for the lower handicap players

John Munn and Hugh Hegan 2017-06-04
Second best rated by our party.

Mary Bradshaw 2017-06-03

Peter Lamont 2017-05-26
Enjoyed the course my least favourite of the four but non the less very enjoyable.

Frank Corten 2017-05-25
Love this course, have played it many times and will play it again and again.

John Wolfe 2017-05-25
Very nice course excellent greens

Ian Jones 2017-05-22
Well laid out and maintained course, very good staff especially Bruno in buggy shed

Anthony Coombs 2017-05-21
This course is always a hard challenge even if you are playing well. Driving accuracy is key but also keeping your longer shots straight.

Ray Seager 2017-05-20
Great condition, extremely helpful.

Graham Johnson 2017-05-17
Excellent condition

Bobinski 2017-05-16
OK - overpriced services

Alan Williams 2017-05-13
Well presented tight course.

Craig Monks 2017-05-10
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

Per Lokken 2017-05-09

Superb course & facilities!

Calum Macdonald 2017-05-05

jon chance 2017-04-29
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 ?!

Robin Seabrook 2017-04-23
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.

Eoghan Lenihan 2017-04-19
As always a magnificent course

Jim Liddy 2017-04-11
Probably the easiest of the courses we played and a great choice for my wife's first game of golf in Portugal

Allan 2017-04-09
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

Lenni Vainio 2017-04-09
Good course, we played that three times and it was nice

Klaus Abraham 2017-04-09
Would not Player again

Micheline Leclerc 2017-04-06
a bit expensive for the quality...good acceptable 5.5 out of 10

Alex Mcghee 2017-03-27
course great weather rotten

? Tim Amor 2017-03-26
We only managed 9 holes because we got rained off. A much better course than I had remembered it to be. Good value.

Christian Gau 2017-03-20
Nice course with similar characteristics than the Old Course but less memorable.

Defranoux Daniel 2017-03-16
Very good value for money.

Vilma Chapman 2017-03-08
Another good course

William Black 2017-03-07
Good. Twilight round start at 14.00 hrs just gave us enough light to finish. Course very fair.

Michal Hatle 2017-02-27
reasonable quality for money, perhaps somewhat improved compare to earlier years

Damian Howe 2017-02-20
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.

Hamilton Durkan 2017-02-19
Fantastic course great condition and nice staff

Ian Fisher 2017-02-07
Very good all round service

Munteanu Danut 2017-02-02
This was the most pleasant experience, even they don't have proper pitching/chipping green facilities.

Thomas whiteside 2017-01-27
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.

Schreyer 2017-01-13
Joli parcours

Axel Heuser 2017-01-04
The pine trees require acurrate shots.

Janet Carling 2016-12-04
Liked the course although it was busy. We liked the clubhouse and the service very much. Practice facilities good.

John Haughey 2016-11-30

John Convery 2016-11-28
Nice course

John Deveney 2016-11-18
Good as always. Staff excellent.

Matti Pulli 2016-11-14
Although, only some waterhazards in course, Pinhal was interresting with rather narrow fairways ! Also in good condition.

Bill Murphy 2016-11-11
Good course, not as challenging as the other Oceanico courses. Should be cheaper to play here.

Paraic Hanley 2016-11-07
Lovely condition

Ian Molyneux 2016-10-17
My personal favourite as it is quite picturesque and similar to an English golf course. The facilities were again excellent.

James Angwin 2016-10-15
Course in better condition than Laguna and Millenium however for me not as interesting. Greens at Pinhal better than all the other courses.

Ken Mitchell 2016-10-13
Tee areas a bit rough but otherwise enjoyable

Gerry McDermott 2016-10-11
Excellent day on Pinhal once again.

Richard Stephens 2016-10-10
Very busy. Too busy. Had 40 delay teeing off. Greens were very average.

charles valade 2016-10-05
Loved Pinhal. Course was in great shape and very challening. People very nice.

Simon Clough 2016-10-04
Great in expensive course

Kevin Smitten 2016-10-04
Nice course greens ran true despite the obvious heavy usage.

Avril Davis 2016-10-03
Course not in great condition and staff in restauranct and shop a bit rude.

Steve Brunton 2016-09-22
Good condition and better than when we played it last time, about 4 years ago. The guys want to return.

Peter Crockett 2016-09-19
Not played this for a year or two and was great to be back and see the course back in top condition

Mark Illingworth 2016-09-15
Nice course with, good layout and test, greens slow

Phil Bailey 2016-09-15
we used the clubhouse on a number of occasions for meals as we were staying nearby, the staff were absolutely superb.

Liz osborne 2016-09-10
Marshals too attentive always checking up actually felt intimidated.

Adrian Fraser Jones 2016-08-28
Good course and in very good condition

Keith Hall 2016-08-27
Good condition, enjoyable course

David McCrone 2016-08-20
Excellent - exceeded expectations

Chris Knowles 2016-07-20
Very Good. Greens were not the best we had played on.

Kevin Walker 2016-07-06
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.

James Young 2016-06-27
We enjoyed this course very much probably due to the lack of sand traps and would certainly play it again.

David Parker 2016-06-26
As the name suggests there are lots of tree-lined fairways some narrow but a lovely course to play.

Brian Rutherford 2016-06-23
My favourite course, not the most difficult but a good test of golf for a medium to high handicap.

Mandel 2016-06-23
Good condition, no issues

Kristiane Peuten 2016-06-19
the course was well, but the service in the restaurant could be better.

William Holmes 2016-06-15
Nice course - good condition and good value

Alain COSTE 2016-06-13
Premier parcours effectué, donc, bonne appréciation: qualité fairways et greens comme les autres: excellente.

Steve White 2016-06-07
Acceptable conditions

Mitchell Singh 2016-06-04
Jorge was fantastic and very quick to respond.

Karen Shaw 2016-06-01
Had not played here before and ended up playing 2 rounds. All very enjoyable

Bill Hunt 2016-06-01

David Brookes 2016-05-31
Very Good

Maurice Rogers 2016-05-31
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.

Stephen Jago 2016-05-26
Good course

Balz Riesterer 2016-05-24
Ok, a little bit slow but after 9 holes much better.

Manuel Almeida 2016-05-18
I recommend it.

Jason Whalley 2016-05-04
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.

good service at course

Mark Deverell 2016-05-03
Save for the drives between holes and the more built up feel to the course this played as well as as The Old Course.

Barry Walsh 2016-04-30
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

John Bennett 2016-04-22

Eriks Eglitis 2016-04-15
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.

John Walsh 2016-03-21
Very good

lynn fletcher 2016-03-17
Good clubhouse and facilities more mature course

Rene Olthof 2016-03-17
nr 2

Huber Othmar 2016-03-11
Golfcourse in poor condition At 3 fairways no grass !!!!

Axel Heuser 2016-03-01
very nice course, fast greens, friedly personal

George Rutherford 2016-02-12
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

Eckhardt Teiber 2016-02-10
Empfang und Starter sehr freundlich. Golfplatz in sehr gutem Zustand.

Trevor Wills 2016-02-04
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.

Fiedler, Manfred 2016-01-31
Sehr gut

Mike Williams 2016-01-17
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.

Torben iversholt 2015-12-12
Great course. We got more than we expected

geoff ball 2015-11-29
Golf course and service all good

Martin Hogan 2015-11-23
Best of the three. Staff excellent. Facilities excellent.

Mark Burrell 2015-11-16
Superb condition and some very interesting holes.

James small 2015-11-06
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.

Patrtick Reddan 2015-11-05
Most enjoyBle

Mrs. Mary Stephanie Liddell 2015-11-03
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.

David Stewart 2015-10-31
Fair, course not in great condition

Gerda Overwater 2015-10-29
Very difficult, but wonderful course. Friendly ladies at the reception desk. Come back and play here again.

Robert Fleming 2015-10-28
Good although greens were poor.

ian sanderson 2015-10-26
better than expected

Paul Bennett 2015-10-26
Second only to The Old Course in the beauty stakes!

Paul Reynolds 2015-10-25
great facilities but the course seemed a little unkept to use. A great layout though and a decent test.

Peter McMahon 2015-10-23
The course was in great condition and the staff on and off the course provided a relaxed and friendly service

Derek Thomas 2015-10-19
Course looked a bit tired

Chez Carlos Golf Society 2012-04-15
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 2011-12-26
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.
