Note some of the dog legs which test your thinking are very playable.
Vilamoura Laguna’s sister, Vilamoura Millennium golf course share the same clubhouse and is the newer golf course offering more of a parkland feel, tree lined with the holes individually created by avenues of local trees. Plenty of space for the odd errant shot to be found and because the holes are created individually not many spectators to witness the odd offline shot.
Bunkers are well positioned but don’t worry they are well prepared with just the right amount of quality sand making an opportunity to execute a good shot to the flag.
A great golf parkland course again, which will benefit from a strategic approach. A straight shot will give good results and an opportunity for par but an ability to fade or draw a shot will provide an advantage. Green complex are well prepared and an opportunity to sink that put is always available.

Some interesting par 3, all playable. This course not as flat as Vilamoura Pinhal or Vilamoura Laguna but easily walkable and not taxing just a delight to play. This is a must play venue if you enjoy this classic style. Always an enjoyable experience.
What can you say about a championship golf course, house of the Portugual Masters.
Wide fairways, so finding them is good, but getting your ball in the right spot is a real benefit in setting up your next shot. Bigger greens but subtle breaks require you to be careful and trust your shot. The last nine holes are a test for the nerves and will require a lot of attention to overcome the various water obstacles. Holes 17 and 18 are truly fantastic, both for the view and in terms of technical demand. Great facilities to practice and warm up.
Reminiscent of an English golf club, sit on the patio outside the clubhouse and relax before or after the game.
Vila Sol is the choice for the Bobby Robson Golf Classic and a sculpture of the man stands proudly beside the 18th Green to welcome him home.
Another classic old style golf course Greens and tee's close by each other perfect.
Extraordinary 27 holes with lots of variety to test your skill.
Some tight fairways but always a way to manoeuvre your ball tee to green some sloping fairways but it's all part of the experience.
The Pine Cliffs resortis located on 68 acres of magnificently natural terrain atop an incredible cliff, overlooking a long, golden sandy beach and the Atlantic Ocean's crystal-clear water.
Martin Hawtree's main purpose while designing the golf course was to retain the natural surroundings as they were before the course was developed. Signature hole, the "Devil's Parlour," is built over a ravine and needs a 197-meter cliff shot to reach the deep, narrow green. Many golfers use this golf course for early rounds on their vacations. An excellent driving range complements the golfers offer at this luxury resort.
No long trips from accommodation to entertainment or great golf courses.
