Once again very good

Branko Krmpotic 2023-09-21
NIce resort (wide open) course with some challenges - great for intermediate players with distance challenge for low handicappers. Slow pace of play rangers do not move people along.

Roy O'Callaghan 2023-09-19
Great course

Nikolaus Lilgenau 2023-09-17
Slow Play, no Ranger on the Course

Course in good condition, Dom Pedro Victoria staff were excellent throughout the experience

Thomas O'Neill 2023-08-25
As always when I play Victoria Golf Course, which has been many times, as I permanently live here in the Algarve, the experience is delightful.

Lee Donnithorne 2023-08-23
Very enjoyable round of golf. The course is very well kept, greens and fairways are excellent. The course is quite long in places but very playable and fun. Couldn’t say a bad word about the place and will certainly come back in the future.

Rhys Garnett 2023-08-22

Millionaire's golf today. Not a soul in sight. Greens and fairways in great nick. Less challenging than I was expecting, so added bonus. Very friendly staff

Lars Fins 2023-07-21

Beautiful course, tough greens and amazing staff

Simon Burford 2023-06-12
Great golf course and fantastic staff ????

Ian Holland 2023-05-26
After 6 holes torrential rain and lightning storms caused play to be cancelled - it was not possible to re-start or immediately re-schedule but the club agreed a full refund voucher incl. buggies valid for one year - which we will use directly to book again next year.

Gerry Thornton 2023-05-26
Always a pleasure to play here. However several of the greens were sanded which detracted from our overall enjoyment.

Andrew Brackett 2023-05-23
Excellent service through booking, transfers and tee times, thanks to Telma

Craig Frame 2023-05-19
Great course, bigger and more open than other Vilamoura courses, need to spend more money on maintenance or it will start to go downhill

Val Mc Mahon 2023-05-17
Very enjoyable round of Golf ?

Carine Bestenheider 2023-05-15
The course was beautiful, some greens were sanded but very well kept. Tiago, the starter was very welcoming and kind. We enjoyed the company of the storks. At hole 14 about the smell was bad.

David Laird 2023-05-14
Course in poor condition.

Richard Moore 2023-05-09
Course and facilities were excellent, breakfast menu could be more extensive

Per Lokken 2023-04-26
Not good fairways

Gerard Kinsella 2023-04-24
Excellent course and facilities thanks for all your help maria

Charles Larkin 2023-04-24
Very enjoyable but tough afternoon at Victoria. A long course and very challenging as you would expect from the host of the Portugal Masters. Its an interesting course but also long so you need to be on your game, coupled with very fast greens and difficult to read when i played. Friendly team when checking in and around the course. I would thoroughly recommend but ensure you have played a few warm up rounds to truly enjoy it otherwise at the green fee cost it can be an expensive and frustrating round.

Lieven Lagast 2023-04-23
Nice course but catering afterwards below level

Helio Rodrigues 2023-04-14
Pure Excellence, Fantastic

Renault Sage 2023-04-11
Disappointed, I was expected the same quality that we saw on old course, the fair way were not in as good shape.

Paul Reynolds 2023-04-10
The course was in great condition. Glad they had cut down the rough as it makes it hard for the average golf and helps speed up play. Greens were magnificent.

Chris Gale 2023-04-03
A little expensive and underwhelming for a championship course

Clive Sims 2023-03-28
We had a very good day, maybe Millennium was in a slightly better condition than Victoria. However still very good.

Dennis Meredith 2023-03-12
Course in great condition as always, cannot have a trip to Vilamoura without playing Victoria

Jennifer Rutherford 2023-02-19
Great course, lovely staff !!

Tony Gill 2023-02-10
Stunning course in very good condition.

Robert Edwards 2023-02-06
Great course, real test. Very friendly staff, 1st class experience,

Dennis McDonagh 2023-02-01
a very challenging but fun layout course had the first twilight spot , and still made it around the course in 3.5 hrs

ANDREW BRACE 2023-01-30
Excellent service. Thank you Marisa. Regards Andrew Brace

Halper Johannes 2023-01-29
The Course is OK,

Kevin Wibberley 2023-01-28

MR DAVID S GRAHAM 2023-01-23
Dom Pedro Vitoria is an excellent course. It was in very good condition. The staff were efficient , polite and helpful. The speed of play was very good, we were round in well under 4 hours. overall a very enjoyable day. Teethes arrangements also worked very well

Nick Fry 2023-01-15
Great layout, condition of tees and greens bit rough over penal

Frank Haidinger 2023-01-13
Tee boxes, fairways and greens in very good condition. Service in the restaurant (not reflected in my rating) on the first day extremely slow, during our second visit it was OK.

Clive Sims 2022-12-27
The course was not in the normal good condition. I understand there had been alot of rain in the week before but the bunkers were unplayable in most cases. It seemed that they had been left as winter maintenance was due to start the following day.

Michel Follonier 2022-12-26
Tee time reservation was perfect, friendly welcome and service. The course was in good condition and the team at the restaurant was also kind.

Philippe Pineau 2022-12-25
Victoria course current condition (Dec22) is excellent tees to greens.

Susan Baker 2022-12-24
Our first time here...challenging back 9 with lots of water, but course in good condition. A bit damp in places but a good round.

Patrick Winterbotham 2022-11-29
All good

Philippe Pineau 2022-11-17
Victoria is a nice course, greens, fairways, bunkers, buggies, etc… in good condition. Enjoyable by golfers of all levels. Would like a ball washer at each tee box. Nice club house and Pro-shop. Parking a bit small. Navigation-GPS will take you to the other side of the parking which is fenced off. Then no signs to access the course (we were several cars going around trying to find the way to the club and its parking!).

Piotr D?browiecki 2022-11-15
We played Victoria course one week after Portugal Masters. It was still in a good and tough condition. The greens were great and the putts were keeping the lines perfectly. Although, the layout of the golf course is just fine. There is a handful of holes that you remember after playing it.

Anne Nikolaisen 2022-11-14

Keith Nicholls 2022-11-07
Brilliant service course brilliant

Ronnie Turner 2022-11-07
The round took over 5 hours, no marshals in presence either. Too many walking and generally slowing up the round. Course was very nice, a lot of pitch marks on each green spoiled the putting surface.

Pasi Stenberg 2022-11-06

JOHN MAC DONAGH 2022-11-06
Course excellent, started round @12.20pm finished round @5.15pm. To long

Wulf Viola 2022-11-05
Excellent course; but where were the storks?

Libor Stehno 2022-11-04
Se not enjoy it

Alan Crowshaw 2022-11-01
Disappointing we had a group of golfers, who hadn’t booked and were slotted in, causing congestion, and slow play.

David Burley 2022-10-30
Very good course

Paraic Hanley 2022-10-28
I can't believe how badly presented Victoria was. It was shabby and the worst greens I have played on in years. Poor Tee boxes/everywhere looks worn and for a premium golf course it's a disgrace. If this is the best they can do one week before the Master's it's a very bad reflection. The staff are magnificent and as always very helpful and friendly. The course should be closed for 3 months and allowed to recover/upkeep.

Peter Clement 2022-10-25
Very enjoyable course in good condition

Paul Remorini 2022-10-19
Course was great and the greens fantastic.

Ralph Keyes 2022-10-13
Great course and facilities

Cliff Morgan 2022-10-11
Great course in excellent condition a test for all golfers!,

Paul Turner 2022-10-11
Good golf course but condition was not the best

EWAN MACLEOD 2022-10-10
Wow! What a great days golf. From a very friendly reception at the pro shop to playing a championship golf course 2 weeks before a pro tournament… it doesn’t get any better. Fantastic layout but golfer friendly allowing for reasonable scoring. Highly recommend.

Andy Jones 2022-10-10
Very friendly and helpful starter marshal. Course in reasonable condition but did not give wow factor for the money paid

Daniel MacSweeney 2022-10-08
Top class

Andrew Thorpe 2022-10-07
Excellent and fair golf course

John Whitby 2022-10-05
Course in great condition as usual greens were a bit slow probably protecting them for the open Could do with the buggy bar appearing more often

Philip Kucharski 2022-10-03
Beautiful course and very well maintained. Wonderful fairways and sharp greens.

Pj Courtney 2022-10-03
Green in good condition for late in the day. Played at 15:00. Pace of play slow resulting in finishing in the dark. Too late a tee time for the time of year.
Tee Times reply: Thanks for your comment. 15:00 is a twilight

Niall O’shea 2022-09-30
A wonderful days golf, pity we could only get a Twilight Tee time as we had to finish at 17. Course is in great condition & playing really well.

Andrew Byers 2022-09-20
Great day

Steve Threader 2022-09-16
The course was in good condition and despite a stiff breeze, was playable if you hit good shots

Graham Wilkinson 2022-09-15
This course is always a great challenge to play, and is always presented in good order. Today was no exception of an experience. From the initial booking in, to receipt of your buggy from the caddy master, then the starter and the refreshments buggy the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. My only negative is the price which is very high cost

Trevor Maw 2022-09-04
As a single player the starter very kindly allowed me to tee off 30 mins early, ahead of 2 x 4-balls scheduled to be ahead of me. Course in great condition, all staff first class (course marshall & buggy bar). Thoroughly enjoyable.

IAN HARTIS 2022-08-28
great course

Nils Taawo 2022-08-22

Really enjoyed the course, not played it for a number of years. Sandwich and drinks cart was a welcome sight!

Feuilloley Franck 2022-08-05
Le golf de dom pedro Victoria est un très bon parcours, assez large, avec de belles longueurs. L’entretien du parcours est parfait, les greens au top. Je recommande ce parcours The golf course of dom Pedro Victoria is a very good course, quite wide, with beautiful lengths. The maintenance of the course is perfect, the greens are top notch. I recommend this golf course

Malcolm Trevor Roberts 2022-07-27
Great course in excellent condition, staff very welcoming

Adrian Shelswell 2022-07-23
Great course, condition of fairways on first few holes not great , but understandable as course closing in a few weeks for preparation for Portugal masters

Mike Smith 2022-07-22
Fantastic course. Definitely worth a visit

Andrew Cliff 2022-07-22
Tough back nine with loads of water but in immaculate condition the tees looked amazing as were the fairways and greens

Adrian 2022-07-18
Lovely course. Very playable

Trevor Berry 2022-07-12
Mesmerising beautiful course

Ralph van den Boogaard 2022-06-28
Nice but Old course is favourite

Neil martin 2022-06-27

Tom Mcilduff 2022-06-25
Great course - good for all levels

Mark Weekes 2022-06-23
great course

Dean Tipper 2022-06-21
Great course and greens. Friendly staff. Played the twilight rate at 4:20. Took 3.5 hours for 2 of us in a buggy.

Paul Miller 2022-06-16
Fabulous course.

Linda Smeed 2022-06-06
Very good service.

Kevin Dempsey 2022-06-04
Victoria Course is absolutely fantastic. Not for the faint hearted. If u don’t like water stop at the 9th. Greens superb fairways good. Bunkers could do with a tad more sand. Superb course and staff superb. Would advise high cappers 18+ to think about paying big money for a track that might break your heart. 5 star.

Brian Hickey 2022-05-29
Course was a bit bare..fairways not in good confition

Roland Streule 2022-05-28
challenging, well maintained course. we enjoyed playing it. Rather difficult greens.

John Robert Bracken 2022-05-23
Wonderfull coarse excellent value for the money but do not increase the cost.

Tony Abbott 2022-05-21
This is a great course and we love it. However our experience today was not good. One of our buggies broke down and stated smoking. We had to wait 1 hour for them to come and get us a replacement buggy. Our round took 5hrs 45 minutes because of the delay. We complained and they have given me a vouchers for 2 free buggies for next year on any Villamoura course valueofor 1 year.

Jeff 2022-05-19
Great course, very tough back nine with lots of water. Nice bar/restaurant and all the staff were very friendly

Jamie Hughes 2022-05-18
very enjoyable round

Dr. Klaus Mittelbach 2022-05-17
Driving range and golf course in good shape. Every day the same situation, only group bookings with only four-ball flights around you. In many cases golfers have no ideas of what „golf etiquette“ means.

Barry Spillane 2022-05-10
Great layout, course could have been a bit bitter shape. a little shabby in places.

Tony Coombs 2022-05-07
What's not to like about this course. Everything about this place is quality. Satnav buggies, pace of play but most of all the challenge of every hole. A good variety of layouts and decisions, especially the risk/reward 14th.

Neil Jeffrey 2022-05-06
Great course with some fantastic holes on it.

David Dempsey 2022-05-01
Easy to book and found great tee times for the courses we wanted.

Issy Stewart 2022-04-28
Had a great time with excellent service and a lovely course to play

Loved it. Fabulous Course, Staff and Service

Uno Sand 2022-04-25
All in all, a very nice course in well-maintained condition. Perfect greens, fast and true. Will definitely play it again.

Richard Weir 2022-04-24
A tough challenge on the back nine, especially when the wind blows, but very enjoyable

Simon mills 2022-04-17

Claudia Haussener 2022-04-05
The weather was very bad. Very windy. But we had luck. After 18 holes there were a thunderstorm. Very nice course

Andrew Ward 2022-04-05
Course in excellent condition. Reasonable rate for buggy. Shame about the rain!

Ronny Krogh 2022-03-30
Course is stunning the staff at the restaurant needs to be axed. Horrible service, slow and incorrect bill

Dennis Meredith 2022-03-28
Course conditions were not as good as other years particularly off the fairways. However we aware of the drought issues experienced in Portugal and put the conditions down to this. It didn't reduce our enjoyment of the course or facilities.

John Deveney 2022-03-25
A good day ruined by cart GPS system. Cart had to be pushed to get it moving back on track. A member of our party says he will never return to this course.
Tee Times reply: Thanks for your feedback. The bugy GPS system on some golf courses is programmed to protect certain areas of the golf courseS. We believe that it causes some discomfort to the player but on the other hand it improves the quality of the golf course.

Hervé Clément 2022-03-20
All electrical were reserved when we arrived in the morning ( big groups)

IAN HARTIS 2022-02-21
Everything well organised and the course was in an excellent condition

Thomas Hoering 2022-02-19
Greens are really fast and complex. Fairways not perfect due to missing rain

Terry 2022-01-29
The course was fantastic with super fast greens and in great condition. Having booked as a 3 ball I was surprised that we had to share the tee time with someone else (albeit they were great company).

David S Graham 2022-01-14
Course was in good condition . Very quiet…which suited us. Pace of play therefore v.good. A more difficult course which we always rate highly.

Frank Haidinger 2022-01-14
Good as expected, fairways a bit dry (less good shape than Faldo and O'Connor)

Peter Collins 2022-01-10
Without doubt the most challenging and enjoyable course I have played in Portugal. It was in fantastic condition and the greens were the fastest I have ever played on. Can't wait to return and play it again.

Michel Follonier 2022-01-09
Very well prepared course. Always a pleasure to be well received at the reception, the club house and at tee one.

Dr. Klaus Mittelbach 2022-01-09
Course in a good shape

Anne Nikolaisen 2021-10-31
This is a realy nice course????love it! And it was in a very good condition, maybe because Portugal Masters coming up.

Krishna Padayachee 2021-10-30
Amazing condition. Brilliant to play it a few days before the Portuguese masters. If coming to Algare, Victoria should definitely be on the list

Sigge Linden 2021-10-29
Nice Course

David Burley 2021-10-24
Great course and friendly service

Christoph Meier 2021-10-22
Victoria is not so well manicured as Laranjal is. Hope they make up until the Portugal Masters …

David Knowles 2021-10-22
Bar and food service very slow, everything else was excellent although course was not in a great condition.

Jo Dirkx 2021-10-17
Great course with super greens. Really worth playing.

Paul Antony Reynolds 2021-10-17
Very nice to play where the main men tee . always in great condition but don't go in the rough . Everybody are always happy and helpful and very organised

Richard Kent 2021-10-17

Wayne Stewart 2021-09-29
Enjoyable course, indicative of a typical Algarve course, still a nice course

Trevor Swift 2021-09-28
Course in great condition, true and fast greens. Very attentive service from all staff. Small issue with pace of play but Marshall in evidence to get things moving.

Daniel Gibson 2021-09-27
Course was very average condition. Not worth the crazy high green fees. Tee were fantastic as always and are number 1 in sorting tee times.

Roger Millington 2021-09-27
Very enjoyable

Gerrit Goor 2021-09-27
Beautiful course, easy to find and very pleasant people

brian haystead 2021-09-24
Top class golf course in great ???? condition worthy to hold the Portugal open we play this course every time we come to Portugal Brian

Mr Steele 2021-09-24
Very enjoyable course, everyone made you feel welcome. Course in great condition and is a very good layout

Maurice Rogers 2021-09-21
Course was in great condition. Very enjoyable.

Michael Carter 2021-09-21
Nice course. The rough was a lot tougher than it looked, balls got buried

Ian McKnight 2021-01-25
We played it a few days after the Open was there, boy was it tough but gave us a real insight to the conditions (rough) the Pro's have to cope with. Superb layout and facilities.

Matti Pietila 2020-03-13
This is the big boys' course as you might expect. Lots of quality practice areas, and the course itself feels "big" from the very first hole on, and it keeps on doing it throughout the whole round. With a number of elevated greens, the course played plenty long for the average bogey duffer, and it was hard to believe where they set up the real tournament tees for the big boys. Sometimes it looked like the tournament tee boxes were 100 meters behind the yellow tees. Good quality in tee boxes, fairways and greens, although to my amazement a couple of greens had a dried-out rim of bare ground around the actual green. Something to be addressed before the next Portuguese Open, I guess. Two greens had been aerated but this was mentioned in the sign at the pro shop desk and also the starter gave a heads-up about those holes. Nice touch from a visitor's point of view. All in all, a very classy golfing experience, as expected.

Michael Nottmeier 2020-03-08
Great and challanging course - we had a great time

Billy O´Reagan 2020-03-07
Great venue

Billy O´Reagan 2020-03-07
Great venue

Dermot Hanafin 2020-02-29
Don't bother - staff unpleasant course in moderate condition, more intrested in larger groups not in individual 4 balls - real shame all about money now - charging for range balls really !!

Dennis Meredith 2020-02-28
Value for money???? Fairways in bad conditions Buggy's low battery.

Martin Punch 2020-02-17
Victoria in average condition due to maintenance works around greens which is expected in february. Buggy hire at 45€ expensive, GPS buggies can be annoying at times.Excellent Service

David Spicer 2020-02-13
Fantastic golf course very quiet (millionaires golf) absolute must for a golfer

Peter Jeffery 2020-02-11
We have used for the last 4 years, absolutely fantastic company to deal with, always delivered a good service, from the transfer from the airport & to the golf courses was always on time & first class. I have always booked through Telma Santos she is a credit to your company. thanks again for another great trip.

Neil Davies 2019-12-07
Great course today. Greens really good

Neil Davies 2019-12-04
Condition not as good as Old and greens slower than Old or Pinhal. A bit miffed with bar order misunderstood, we try do help by taking second unordered coffee suggesting it be half price and then be charged full price. Not good customer relations really and one questions whether they are bothered in you coming back during their very quiet season

Graham Sharp 2019-11-26
Twilite time made the cost a bit more bearable but same comments on the buggy and balls

Natalie Redková 2019-11-18
Everything about this golf course was just perfect. One of the best in Algarve.

Herbert Wolf 2019-11-16
Top gepflegter Platz, nur zu empfehlen

Britta Ries 2019-11-05
Right after the Masters the greens we're so unbelieveble fast. This was an experience itself. But the course is a bit unspectacular, somehow unagitated. I expected more. Care and service was very well.

MOUTOT 2019-11-04
Greens exceptionnals WE played a very nice party on a golf course so beautiful with fairways so good And with top top top greens very high quality Just be careful cos some people don t repare their pitchs on the greens But top top top golf course

deudon pascal 2019-10-20
Retour très difficile

Andreas Tenner 2019-10-18
What a course! Everything perfect! Love it!

Lovera Philippe 2019-10-13
Magnifique et très technique

Alexander Tulloch 2019-10-12
The twilight times do not work well, we only managed 13 holes, very disappointing

Derek Richardson 2019-10-09
very slow round as Vilamoura staff double booked two 2 balls and then they refused to pair up (and not enforced by the staff) so we had 2 walking 3 balls and 3 buggied 2 balls - we did not finish the round when it should have been easily achievable - rangers on the course did nothing about the very slow play

Richard Kiely 2019-10-06
Excellent as ever. Great course and helpful and courteous people.

Vincent 2019-10-05
Very very good course. Just wonderfull

Emeline 2019-10-01
Well maintained course, friendly staff and great shrimp with garlic at the restaurant. We had a wonderful time.

Odette Isler 2019-09-30
Great course and very friendly staff

Andy Jones 2019-09-16
Great challenge, now having played it, would make number of different shot choices on the back 9.

Simon jefferson 2019-09-12
Course, service and experience all were excellent.

Billy Duncan 2019-09-11
Great Course in Very good Condition, and very Friendly Staff

Stuart Gray 2019-09-10

Mr Stephen Archibald 2019-09-08
top class course , a real challenge but very enjoyable

Richard Magee 2019-09-05
Always a delight to play this course, fairly forgiving with its large fairways and perfectly groomed greens. Very sparse rough too, but it can make a total fool of you if you're not at the races (i.e hungover!) Amazing hospitality, and the buggies with GPS made it even more enjoyable. If you play golf but haven't played here yet, you're seriously missing out....

Edward Walmsley 2019-09-05
New course to me but very much enjoyed the challenge - longish and quick greens - the last few holes are delightful. Great clubhouse - very good food

Lovely course, good condition. Quite long for me but still very playable

Adam Gutteridge 2019-08-26
Course in pretty good condition

Andrew binnie 2019-08-19
Brillant course,Staff were great.Many thanks for a wonderful day of golf.Cheers

Leigh davis 2019-08-15
Great course well deserved hosts of the Portuguese masters soon . Only disappointment was that they did not team me up with a couple of two balls around me which meant I had to play on my own. Still enjoyable in good condition and would return

Mark Pannell 2019-08-08
Excellent course

Michael D Stangoe 2019-07-28
Beautiful course - definitely worth playing.

Andrew Lawrence 2019-07-26
Course undergoing work so not the best

Barry Keane 2019-06-01
All organisation was perfect. The course was not is good condition (in particular when compared to the Old Course)

Matt Burke 2019-05-30

John J Gosney 2019-05-27
Hi. A very enjoyable round of golf. A great layout and course was in reasonably good condition. Staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome

Alan Williams 2019-05-24
Course looking a bit scruffy, not up to standards of the past. Closing holes still a great challenge. Needs a bit of TLC to regain crown

John Philips 2019-05-24
Great golf course very testing

Terrenoire 2019-05-22
One of my favorite experience since 10 years

Christopher Priest 2019-05-19
Brilliant all round

Ian Green 2019-05-14
The facilities are superb, although the condition of the fairways was poor compared to previous years when we have played the course

Delaume Catherine 2019-05-13
Merveilleux parcours

Peter Lovenholm 2019-05-12
Never see the buggy for a beer and sandwish

Josef Zech 2019-05-10
The course did not hold the expectations we had for the price we paid and the fact that this is the course for the next portugal masters. The fairways are in a very bad condution by far too hard

Timo Lehto 2019-05-08
Unfortunately it was raining during our stay and we almost stopped the round. It was prohibited to drive with buggies on the fairways and that made the play slow and unpleasant in the rain. The staff was very friendly.

Jamie Hughes 2019-05-02
very disappointing fairways are very patchy bare and sandy not up to its usual standard

Michael O'Neill 2019-04-29
Course in disappointing condition with lots of areas that should have been marked as ground under repair. No free balls on the practice range this year. Buggies too dear @ 45 euro each.

Peter Clement 2019-04-29
Friendly staff. Course layout is excellent and excellent facilities at clubhouse and practice area. . Condition disappointing, many areas near greens "lost" due apparently to little rain in recent months. Should really have been marked GUR. Also some tees in very poor condition compared with previous years. Overall not as good an experience as in the past at what has been one of the top courses in the area. Nice touch of free use of range no longer offered.

Jim Liddy 2019-04-28
Possibly the best course I’ve played unfortunately we experienced the weather of the 4 seasons in the first 5 holes which took away from the experience. With the continuous rain, with some hail and then the thunder and lightning I was surprised we weren’t taken off the course. Would return again if the price was right

Darryl Williamson 2019-04-24
A very challenging and long course with an abundance of water challenges and lots of opportunities for distance driving

patrick richelme 2019-04-20
Très beau .parcours Accueil professionnel Interrompu par la pluie nous avons pu finir les 9 derniers le surlendemain Bravo remerciements

David Murphy 2019-04-18
Absolutely superb time. Everything went smoothly and everyone was really helpful. It was my first time playing in Portugal and it couldn't have been any better. Thanks to everyone at The times and Dom Pedro golf.

Timo Kahila 2019-04-14
Lovely course but way too expensive

Svein Tonna 2019-04-11
Well maintained but kind of boring. Course for long hitters. Have invested in new buggies with GPS.

Enda McDonald 2019-04-10
Very enjoyable - condition of course not as good as when I played it previously. Staff and facilities all excellent!

James Hogg 2019-04-04
Loved the course and I won on this

Graham Sharp 2019-04-03
Coarse was good but i feel very overpriced especially with no Buggy or even some practice balls included Club house eating area looked a bit tired although service was good It was quiet compared to previous years not sure if this is because of the cost and people rare not playing

Neil McIlwraith 2019-04-02
Course condition was ok. Greens excellent but areas surrounding fairways very muddy and bare.

Neil Watkinson 2019-03-26
Too expensive for buggies and trollers and range balls Today the driving range and putting greens were fully occupied by pros teaching about 30 people in one lesson totally out of order

Andy Kerr 2019-03-15
Good. Found the course very difficult for our standard of golf.

Dennis Meredith 2019-02-24
The best course I’ve every played.. hard yet forgiving and fair..

Kurt Maller 2019-02-21
Semirough nicht im besten zustand. Platz sonst perfekt. Super Fairway. Tolle schnelle Grüns.

Acacio do Carmo 2019-02-13
Parcours à l’americaine. Entretien impeccable

Janie Jenkins 2019-02-10
Really enjoyed our round on this championship course. Excellent condition

Anne 2019-01-07
Love that course !

Cheng Li Seng 2019-01-07
Wonderful course. Challenging and interesting. Forgiving fairways but well-protected green. Free one hour of practise at the driving range before the game. A must try in Villamoura.

Joaquina Hadjeba 2019-01-05

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2018-12-23
Victoria ist ein schöner und interessanter Platz mit breiten fairways, insbesondere die back nine, wo das Wasser zumindest für die Herren mächtig ins Spiel kommt. Er ist sehr gepflegt! Das Essen im Clubhaus ist gut; empfehlenswert ist der Fisch.

Geert Fore 2018-12-20
Great Course and make sure you have your A game its a challenge for any level of golfer

ian campbell 2018-12-18
Staff were excellent - had a nice chat with them.

Mr Pham 2018-12-12
Great course with complementary range balls and manual trolley... Lay out is good for golfers with different skill levels.

Steinar Theodorsen 2018-12-10
Beutyfull course and friendly staff. Greens an fairways in very good Condition. A few dry spots, well marked and with drop-zones. Very Nice.

Daniel GIBSON 2018-12-03
Slow round of golf no marshals to get people moving The condition was average and overall a little over priced

Paul Fell 2018-12-01
Excellent, would have liked to have seen greens as fast as Old course

Ulrich Fehlmann 2018-11-19
Top and clearly Nr. 2 After Monte Rei

Mr Rune Dahlberg 2018-11-17
The greens were suite slow and not in tip top shape

John Deveney 2018-11-15
Always a pleasure to play, staff first class.

Craig Ferreira 2018-11-14
Superb course, great condition and good greens

Mike Beattie 2018-11-10
Was treated with a lot of happy smiles and friendly people. Course was in great condition and I enjoyed the golf.

Alan Gayle 2018-11-07
We were greeted Very well from the the staff located in the Professional Shop, very helpful, course in great condition, ground staff very helpful , loved playing various picturesque holes, highly recommend

Enno Langfeldt 2018-11-05
Due to slow playing we were just able to finish our round when starting at 1.10 o clock.

Ahsan Zahir Rizvi 2018-10-23
Excellent course

NEIL DUGGAN 2018-10-20
Played here several times now and love the layout, but it looked very tired in places a lot of traffic been through the course in the last few months , making it look tired and bare around the course, one good thing though the greens were still in good shape which is more important than the other areas so was happy with the greens ???? .

David Perkins 2018-10-20
Superb course and a pleasure to play

Peter Kelly 2018-10-19

Oystein Dalevoll 2018-10-12
Fantastic. Had a great day at Victoria

George McDonald 2018-10-12
Great day. Great course

Mr Matt Grant 2018-10-12
Fantastic course, most definitely worth a visit, good test of golf but fair

Mark Barnish 2018-10-08
This is an outstanding golf course which is very challenging as one would expect. Excellent condition even though played just after the Portuguese Masters where it obvioulsy takes some hard wear. For older club members who have lost a few yards or more from their driving the fairway carries make this a less enjoyable experience than ir deserves

Derek Hough 2018-10-04

Peter Clement 2018-10-04
Played twice two and three days after Portugal masters. Rough very challenging for amateurs and a few fairways much narrower than normal, but still hugely enjoyable.

Alexander Miller 2018-10-01
Wonderful golf course with some superb holes.Only negative was losing balls so easily just off the fairway and we were not the only ones as most of the groups in front of us were having the same problem. Maybe that's the price you pay for playing a few days after the Portugal Masters but overall it was a fantastic golfing experience.

Chris Smith 2018-10-01
UNBELIEVEABLE !!! an amazing course thoroughly enjoyed by all parties

Daniel MacSweeney 2018-09-27
Directions around the course was not great. The welcome information could be improved on arrival, Lockers , keys, towels etc. The course is fabulous and the staff really nice.

Gunnar Blomdahl 2018-09-20
Very good

Andrew Sworowski 2018-09-06
Really enjoyed our round at Victoria. Enjoyed the free range balls looked forward to a good round. The weather was good and the course was in great condition.

Thomas O'Neill 2018-09-04
The course was in perfect condition as it was being prepared for the Masters. The rough was tough but playable. Great experience

Mark Pannell 2018-08-31
Excellent course, really enjoyed it , played well which obviously helps. A true test of golf, course was set up for European Tour in September with narrow fairways & penalising rough...

Harry Gilfillan 2018-08-28
Excellent. Not one issue at all

Graham Sims 2018-08-25
Great golf course in good condition. Might be advisable to inform people booking that rough is being grown long and punishing in preparation for the Portuguese Masters in late September.

Ade Fisher 2018-08-25
Lovely course, played very difficult with the Portugal Masters coming up - would definitely play again.

Stephen Hooker 2018-08-20
Fantastic - friendly , professional and efficient - thanks

Stewart Steele 2018-08-03
Too slow

Peter Clement 2018-07-27
Very pleased with course condition. Can see a number of fairways have been made narrower. Greens excellent. Only one very small concern. You had stated buggy fee would be €20 but we charged €25.

John Nightingale 2018-07-26
Excellent service

SAM MISKELLY 2018-07-16

Declan O'Hare 2018-07-12
Ok course- back 9 more interesting

Mark Vaughan 2018-07-11
Jorge looked after me well in shop and I decided to play Victoria. I thought the course was generally in good condition. Obviously the semi rough is being changed and is GUR but I knew about that before.

Gordon Livingston 2018-07-06
Course was heavily sanded but the deal was half price, therefore fairly compensated. Great day out.

Craig Johnstone 2018-05-23
Great experience and enjoyed thoroughly.

Paul Beard 2018-05-16
Great course as always

Karl clancy 2018-05-16
Course 9/10 Difficulty 9/10 Service 10/10 Food 10/10 One of the best courses in the area. A true golfing test with the course once again in a fantastic condition. Plenty of water and a must play course whilst in Vilamoura.

Stewart Eden 2018-05-14
Victoria was the last course we played out of 4. It was a good test of golf in the wind and the last 8 holes with water very much in play made scoring very difficult. The course was in very good condition and the staff were very friendly.

Jamie Hughes 2018-05-04
Amazing golf course in fantastic condition lovely staff

Ashok Dhuna 2018-04-29
nice challenging course. well set out and organised.

Brian Haystead 2018-04-25
Stunning course .hospitality great Millionaires golf .played pretty good 75yrold Brian

Thomas Karr 2018-04-20
Very interesting layout with many bunkers and water on the second half. It was very windy, but we enjoyed play. Here you hopefully join sweden players in a flight .

Clive Sims 2018-04-11
Played as a 2 ball and the course moved at a good pace. The course was good and enjoyed the day.

Kevin McGrath 2018-04-10
Excellent course , facilities were superb . Friendly staff . Really enjoyed it . Will come again .

Steven Ritchie 2018-04-08
Very nice course.

Kratzer 2018-04-07
Very nice course but very expensive

Philip Resuggan 2018-04-04
Very pleasant stay. Good, friendly staff, excellent breakfast

Peter Grant 2018-03-29
We really enjoyed playing Victoria this year. The course was in great condition

Jürgen Blickle 2018-03-27
In a very good condition. Good course.

Stein Svennevik 2018-03-18
The tempo was slow and the last 5 holes we had to wait som e minutes.

Andrew Flynn 2018-03-11
Cracking course, unfortunately the weather was poor on the day. A lot of work currently taking place on course, will definitely play again

Thomas Wicker 2018-03-05
Tough course because long distance but fair because wide fairways, second 9 you have to play arround the water , perfect greens

Colin Smith 2018-03-02
We had not played the course for some years. We were very pleased that we decided to return. Both the course and the clubhouse facilities were great. Shame that heavy rain spoilt the enjoyment of the last few holes, but you cannot blame the course for that! Would recommend to anyone.

Alan Smith 2018-03-01
Everybody in our party enjoyed all the courses played.

Miklós Breitner 2018-02-26
Even though the golf course was under preparation for the next golf season, it gave me a very pleasant experience and challenge. It seems like Arnold Palmer the designer thought of every level of golfers to be able to enjoy their game. The clubhouse and the restaurant had a very cozy atmosphere. It is also very good that the Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort is just right behind the golf course.''

Jan Sklepek 2018-02-17
Gerade sehr trocken, aber trotzdem gut gepflegt. Anspruchsvoll, super Clubhaus.

Zeljko Lovkovic 2018-01-16
Lack of real spirit for me somehow, just long (but possible to score well), too yellow fairways compared to Pinhal/Old course and other courses in the area. Still very nice facility, club house and all around it and people working in (on that -high level).

David Mitchell 2018-01-12
Quick good service

Markus Gutzler 2018-01-08
Course in good condition, staff is very unfriendly to people who don't play there. My wife was not allowed to walk with me to the driving range.

Frank McGinty 2018-01-03
Difficult course but a very enjoyable experience.

Clive Sims 2017-12-29

Axel Heuser 2017-12-28
Hier zu spielen, macht großen Spaß. Die ondulierten Fairways und die schnellen Grüns fordern jeden Golfer heraus. Der Championshipplatz mit seinen 5 Abschlägen (weiß, gelb, gold, blau, rot ) ist in einem tadellosen Zustand. Im Greenfee inbegriffen ist der Besuch der Drivingranch. Hier sind die Übungsbälle pyramidenförmig aufgeschichtet.

William Forrest 2017-12-19
Another superb course. Only issue was drop in staff standards since we last played here and since takeover by Dom Pedro Golf. This is a serious issue given the cost of playing this course

Thomas O'Neill 2017-12-14
The course was in very good condition and a good challenge, as always. The staff were both courteous and helpful.

Regina Paetzke 2017-11-21
Very nice course, excellent condition

Tilman 2017-11-17
Very Nice Course, Front and backnine with two different caracters, fair layout, Risk and Reward for competetive Players. Very enjoyable Play!

Rainer Albath 2017-11-15
Nice.... in Good condition this Year!

John Deveney 2017-11-14
This place is really becoming something rather special, course and staff really good.

Pieter Driessen 2017-11-10
We had lovely round had Old course, very friendly. Good service. Rent buggy, water included. Spend about 200 euro buggybar. Only problem is 4 euro for a can of beer. Way overpriced. But if you are thirsty you have to. Victoria, Defenitely not that friendly, and no water in buggy. Sorry for price you pay, at least little bit of water. And same for beer, but if you are thirsty you have to Tomorrow we play Millenium. We will see Thank you

Nicole Strauss 2017-11-07
We had have great pleasure ! Well organized

Mr. Holmes 2017-11-06
Enjoyed playing this challenging golf course today. Pleased to have complimentary range balls and trolley to use. Course was in good condition. Thought it could definitely have done with a more detailed plan of each hole on the tee box as there are a lot of holes that need to be played a couple of times to get the lines and distances right. Particularly on the back nine!

David Evans 2017-10-31
Great golf course and great service from all concerned at the course. A good test for all standards of golfer.

John Ferguson 2017-10-28
One of the finest tests of golf in the Algarve

Aidan Foley 2017-10-26
Great course..great day

Dan Carter 2017-10-24
Great fun!

Graham Holden 2017-10-23
Excellent golf course, superb condition generally, excellent club house and facilities

Per Lokken 2017-10-19
Very good golf Course

Eoin Hanrahan 2017-10-18
Fantastic course and excellent service. We hope to be back!

Peter Frampton 2017-10-17
Course was in excellent condition. It was very windy, so made a long course even harder. Pace of play was good. Staff as always were very nice and friendly. Buggy team and starter were all friendly. Food in the clubhouse was very good. Still prefer the Old Course but Victoria is a close second.

Graham Holden 2017-10-16
The course was generally in excellent condition, and the greens were reasonable and running at 9 on the stimp meter. The practice facilities are first class. The food was lovely and service from all of the staff was very good indeed.

Peter Clement 2017-10-14
Excellent layout and condition very good.

Neil williamson 2017-10-14
Always love playing Victoria although the greens were not very good but we didn't tee off until 14.40 so a lot of golfers had already played that day.

Raymond Gray 2017-10-12
Favourite venue for our party. Course in excellent condition and provided a good challenge.

Sharon Watson 2017-10-07
We played 2 days after the masters when everythingnwas being dismantled and the course was playing tough. Loved it for the experience alone, but it was tough!

Steve Brunton 2017-09-21
Very good and tough, just before the Masters

Kenny McDonald 2017-09-19
a very tough challenge but still a great experience

Neil Turner 2017-09-18
Victoria was being prepared for the Portuguese masters - it played long with the rough being allowed to grow - but it's a great championship golf course - a proper golfing test. Service is excellent including complimentary use of the driving range.

Seamus o neill 2017-08-26
Top class

Erwin van der Stap 2017-08-23
Superb course, superb service! Free range balls when playing, water in the buggy, very friendly staff

James Wood 2017-08-04
The best welcome and practice facilities I've ever had/used, but not unsurprising as the course hosts the Portugese Open. The course was being prepared for the Open so there was quite a bit of prep work taking place, with ditches and gulleys for TV cameras being put in place, but the course is fantastic, a great layout and a good number of memorable holes...although the greens were quite slow, and did not always give the truest roll of the ball, which we put down to the fact they were being prepared for the PGA tour Open six weeks later. The course is visually stunning, but there are several really tough tee/approach shots, higher handicappers beware of the numerous 200+ yds carry over water, bushes, etc especially on the back nine and closing holes, this course is definitely one that suits the long straight hitters! Service and welcome were outstanding, a really nice touch that your buggies had personal welcome's with course planners, and a really nice touch that practice balls were free, and set up waiting for you.

Danny French 2017-07-22
Cheapest buggies at €25. Challenging championship course but fair.

Derek Scott 2017-07-16
Abosolutely abysmal -disappointed and felt ripped off to pay a full high cost green fee on a course that was being prepared for the Portugal masters. On the day we played the greens were poor, covered in sand and the fairways were filled with sand, slit and saturated. I understand the course had been closed for 3 weeks prior to the day we played. Worst experience on our annual trip to Portugal...we should have been informed and given the option to play elsewhere or pay a considerably reduced green fee...this did not happen. It was better to play from the rough than the fairways.

Brendan Collins 2017-06-27
Rather ordinary front nine but exceptional back nine making for a good experience. Courses well maintained.

Josh Pitsillides 2017-06-22
Quite possibly the best course I have played in Vilamoura. The only slight let down was that we were there for an 8am tee off but the pro shop didn't open until 7.30am and the range wasn't ready until 7.45am, leaving us little time to practice. The facilities and course were top notch though, will be back next year.

Robert Harris 2017-06-06
Stunning course! Great greens and faiways! Great club house facilities

Mary Bradshaw 2017-06-03
Excellent, loved it.

Paul Pheby 2017-05-24
Tough course off the back tees,not helped by strong winds! The best of the Oceanica group and a fine layout

Craig Frame 2017-05-23
Very nice course, great to play a European Tour regular

Anthony Coombs 2017-05-21
You always love the courses where you play well and there is something about this course that gets my game going. We were fortunate to start at the 10th tee allowing us to take on the 12th and 14th before the afternoon breeze kicked in. This course is always well presented, but some the yellow teeing grounds were a little over played.

Ray Seager 2017-05-20
Fantastic service, expertly run ,nice touch with free range balls.

Clive Sims 2017-05-18

Bobinski 2017-05-16
perfect - especially with pricing and services !! ( good price for buggy, free balls for driving and free of charge trolleys !!

Ian Green 2017-05-15
3rd time we have visited the course, and most peoples favourite. Views around the course are amazing, the course was in fantastic condition , again with plenty of challenges. All 5 courses we played were fantastic, hospitality and service at all 5 was superb, and I would recommend them to any golfer looking for courses to consider in the Algarve !!!

Alan Williams 2017-05-13
Excellent course. Helpful staff. Great facility, good catering. A must play

Per Lokken 2017-05-09
Excellent Course

Per Lokken 2017-05-09
Excellent Course

Ian Fisher 2017-05-08
Superb course & facilities! Very tough course, but very enjoyable!

Mark Punter 2017-05-03
Victoria was disappointing. Probably the worst condition I have seen the course in. Greens were slow and the general condition of fairway and rough were not up to Victoria standard. Even the course decoration is starting to look tired. Time for an upgrade.

Paul Maclean 2017-04-23
Always a pleasure playing here - from being met in the car park by someone who takes your clubs to the clubhouse, to the friendly reception staff, the starter and people who load your clubs onto the buggy. Very classy, and makes things easy. Always enjoy the course - it was in great condition and another great day's golf.

Timo Kahila 2017-04-19
Really top but had an extremely windy day there

Benny Talt 2017-04-19
I am sorry to say that Victoria was not in good condition when we played it as their was sand on the fairways and on the greens , this is my 5th time playing this course and I have to say I have never seen it in such bad condition. 5/10

Lenni Vainio 2017-04-09
Course was very wet when we played but is fantastic course

Klaus Abraham 2017-04-09

Alan Kane 2017-03-30
Great course but difficult. Golf starter was fantastic and very welcoming

Susan Booth 2017-03-28
Our first visit to Victoria. Very impressive operation and a warm welcome from everyone. Course is a good test of golf and was in very good condition. Would love to play it again without the windy weather!

kevin birchall 2017-03-24
best facilities of the week

Christian Gau 2017-03-20
It´s a modern championship course - well protected, flat, lots of space for potential spectators which als causes a few longer walks between holes.

Defranoux Daniel 2017-03-16
Luxury golf, hand trolley offered, free practice ball, a little hard for women as the holes are long! I was pleased.

Vilma Chapman 2017-03-08
Very challenging, immaculate course. Some very good interesting holes

Michal Hatle 2017-02-27
generally ok, maybe better maitenance (cutting dense leafs alongside fairways in places golfers cannot see due to horizons) would improve game and its pace...

Glenn Dunbar 2017-02-24
Best course ever played on.

Thomas whiteside 2017-01-27
Quality everything about this course is first class from the tee to green. Yes. it's more expensive but by far the best experience.

Schreyer 2017-01-13
Magnifique! les gens fort sympathiques, notre préféré de tous

Axel Heuser 2017-01-04
Eu adoro jogar em Victoria. Undulating and bride fairways. Perfeito.

Nico Kraszkiewicz 2016-11-24
over the top! great course conditions, fast green, challenging!

John Deveney 2016-11-18
Another favourite which never fails. Would struggle to find a negative comment. Staff always excellent.

Ben Jones 2016-10-21
Best course in Vilamoura and probably the best i have ever played, Everything first class from the time you arrive until you leave.

Ralph Keyes 2016-10-19
very enjoyable but condition of greens poor the first day we played. Better the second day.

James Angwin 2016-10-15
Best course of the four, a joy to play. It was being prepared for the forthcoming tour event and again was not in the condition it should be for the green fee paid.

Ian lewis 2016-10-13
Very disappointed with its condition

mike williams 2016-10-09
Best course of the trip, service excellent and a must for next trip.

charles valade 2016-10-05
Course was in great shape and staff was friendly and efficient. Love this course and its people.

Maurice Rogers 2016-09-27

Mark Illingworth 2016-09-15
Excellent course very good set up, thoroughly enjoyed the course, although again the greens were very slow.

Tom Keenan 2016-09-13
We love the challenge of Victoria especially the finishing holes.

Liz osborne 2016-09-10
Very professional club. Course amazing

Melvin McAleer 2016-08-10
Excellent for both courses

Jon Burrows 2016-08-08
Top course

Chris Knowles 2016-07-20
What more can you say about this course. It's the best. The staff were most helpful and accommodating. Definitely will be playing there again.

Miguel de Paiva Couceiro 2016-07-18
Great course, have known it since the beginning. Staff most helpful and very kind.

Celio Carreto 2016-07-06
Don't play when the course had maintenance! Bad greens and fairways. Not worth the money.

Peter Lamont 2016-06-27
I love this course however it is very difficult for the holiday golfer. you need to be in the full of your health to enjoy the home stretch.

Steve williams 2016-06-20
Very tough course but to be expected, as the Portuguese open is played here, we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, hope to come back and try to improve our pretty average scores !!

Steve White 2016-06-07
Good experience as in previous years

Ian Green 2016-06-06
Excellent condition, a great day

Trevor Swift 2016-06-04
Good to play a course that you see the pros play

Another fine course but difficult for handicap golfers; suggest putting the tees further forward.

This was the cream of the courses for us and we had a very enjoyable day. Again it was a little challenging but a great experience. Course knowledge helps a lot and for most of these we were playing for the first time but look forward to returning.

Great course, very good condition. Always a challenge off the back tees.

One of the best courses we have played in Portugal (played more than 40). Great design, beautiful And excellent maintenance. Fine service by staff.

David Lyng 2015-12-10
This was the least enjoyable of the three. If fact we were sorry we chose this course to play . Too many people playing this course. We were held up from start to finish. There was no course ranger to ensure that people kept their correct position behind the group in front. In fact the group in front of us were so slow and inconsiderate that it spoiled our day. The course ranger's absents seems to me is a policy of the golf course management. My experience of the Victoria that day is that it's money grabbing and once they have it they do not ensure the customer has an enjoyable day. Never again will I ever consider playing the Victoria. Too expensive for what it is.

Interessanter Platz, überhaupt die Back Nine. Allerdings das Semirough für Frauen-Handgelenke schwer zu bewältigen.

Tee Times 2011-10-14
Overview Opened in 2004, the Oceânico Victoria Golf Course was designed by American golfing legend and seven-time Major winner Arnold Palmer at a cost of €18million and with an aim of being one of the finest golf complexes in Europe, and it is certainly up there with the best. Playing at 7,231 yards from the championship tees, the par 72 design hosted the World Cup the year following its inauguration and has, since the first playing of the event in 2007, accommodated the Portugal Masters and its four previous winners, Steve Webster, Alvaro Quiros, Lee Westwood and Richard Green. Comprising four par fives, four par threes and ten par fours – including the beastly 510-yard seventh and the incredibly challenging 463-yard 18th – officials have the choice of numerous tees with which to vary individual holes throughout the tournament days. There are four lakes at Oceânico Victoria, covering a total of 13 of the course’s 90 hectares, and the watery hazards come into play on seven holes: the aforementioned seventh, the 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 17th and 18th. Martin Kaymer, the highest-ranked player on show this week, is the current holder of the course record having fired an incredible 11 under par 61 in the opening round of the first Portugal Masters back in 2007, a magnificent effort that consisted of 11 birdies including five in a row to finish. The course is in superb condition and with a forecast befitting of Portugal’s glorious reputation, with temperatures peaking in the late 20s and a testing breeze that should top out at around 15 mph, the stage is set for another memorable week in Vilamoura. Fairways The fairways at the Oceânico Victoria are generally fairly wide and receptive for the highly-skilled professional golfer, but with water coming into play on almost half the holes and an abundance of fairway bunkers ready to capitalise on errant drives, accuracy from the tee is imperative. There are doglegs left at the fourth, fifth and seventh holes that may encourage the draw, but above all players will be mainly searching for arrow-straight tee shots, with sometimes an iron providing the best chance of ideal positioning. Tournament Director, David Williams, said: “The fairways will be in very good condition, and although not particularly tight it will be more important to ensure hitting them with the rough a bit more penal this year. “There is now more definition to the rough, which has been extended by around 20 yards so wayward tee shots will be punished.” Greens The greens are one area of the course that have received some attention since last year’s event, as Williams also reflected. He said: “There has been a lot of work done on the course in general, especially on the greens, as in previous years they have been a little too soft and receptive, leading to some very low scoring, but they have been firmed up considerably and so will therefore play a lot harder. “This has also increased the importance of hitting as many fairways as possible to have a chance at landing the ball softly on the greens.” Generally large and undulating, and currently running at around 11’5” on the stimpmeter, the greens are L93 Bentgrass and should provide a telling test for even the most accomplished of the Tour’s putters on view this week. With broad fairways and non to punishing rough, a good putting week could prove the difference between first and second come Sunday. Key holes The par five 17th is widely regarded as the “signature hole” of the Oceânico Victoria course, proclaimed by the Oceânico group’s website as an “Arnold Palmer masterpiece”. Playing at 589 yards from the back tees, it is the longest par five on the course and is flanked down the right hand side by 12 water cascades and several fairway bunkers. After the tee shot things don’t get any easier either, with those brave enough to attempt the green in two facing a daunting approach to the water-fronted green that also happens to be the smallest on the course. A thorough and visually stunning examination of skill and course management. And while the 17th is described as a thing of beauty, defending champion, Australian Richard Green, believes the longest holes on the course are there for the taking. “I think the par fives are the key here to having a great score,” he said. “On the final day [last year] I remember birdieing three of the four par fives which helped me greatly and I was eight under par for the week on them which was almost half of my 18 under par winning total. So you can see how important they can be. “Of the other holes, I think the one that stands out is the seventh,” Green continued. “It is a really difficult par four at over 500 yards and although, if you play it well you do have a chance for birdie, you can also make some big numbers there if you are not careful. I was level par on that hole for the four rounds last year and I’d take that again this week, no question.” How the course played in 2010 In the 2010 Portugal Masters there were, in total, 44 eagles and an astonishing 1610 birdies, figures that are indicative of the scoring possibilities available at Oceânico Victoria. Only 20 of those 1610 birdies, however, came at the par four 18th, ranked the hardest hole at last year’s event. A 463-yard monster bordered the entire length by water on the left, and with plentiful fairway-bunkers littering the right side of the fairway, the finishing hole also normally plays into the Vilamoura wind. Undoubtedly a potential round-wrecker, as shown last year, when there were 108 bogeys and 42 double bogeys posted on it, so players will be more than happy to make par on it this week. “The 18th is a really good hole for the tournament to finish on,” said 2010 champion Green. “It’s not quite as long as the seventh, but it is still a long and demanding par four. The drive is key there to get into position but even if you do, you still face a tough second shot where you have to be careful of the water.” At the contrasting end of the spectrum, ranked 18th in the 2010 hole averages with 14 eagles and 172 birdies to its name, and only 24 scores over par on it all week, is the par five fifth which emerged from last year with a 4.53 shot average that will leave this week’s competitors licking their lips. Par on this hole will feel more like a bogey and will indisputably represent an opportunity missed. As Green mentioned, low scoring on the par fives is imperative for those looking to trouble the upper echelons of the leaderboard, with almost 40% of 2010’s eagles and birdies being yielded at the long third, fifth, 12th and 17th holes. Conclusions Despite the firming up of the greens and the extending of the rough the scoring should still be good this week in Portugal, with previous years’ winning totals numbering -18 (Green in 2010), -23 (Westwood in 2009), -19 (Quiros in 2008) and -25 (Webster in 2007). Accuracy off the tee and good putting on the undulating greens should go well rewarded, while players will also have to contend with Vilamoura’s perpetual gusts, as Williams summarises. “I think one of Oceânico Victoria’s challenges is its almost-constant breeze,” he said. “It’s not a gale, perhaps around 10 to 15 mph wind, so not calm, but not too windy either. But it always provides a nice challenge, and combined with firmer greens it should prove a test for this week’s world-class field.”
