Beware of the thief

We played this course February 17th and I appologize to do not comment this in principle very nice and challenging golf course.
I arrived together with three friends at 09:50 a.m. and as usual we dropped all our objects (incl. wallets) not needed while playing into our golf bags. Moving on to the reception two nice young guys (in Golf Club uniform) offered to us to carry the bags down to the buggys while we did the registration. We accepted without thinking.
About 30 min. later we worked down, jumped on the buggys and started playing at 10:50 a.m. The course was quite empty and we did'nt see anybody during the game. Return to the Caddymaster another two young guys offered to clean the clubs what we accepted with pleasure, took our wallets out of the bags and moved on to the restaurant for a drink. By trying to pay the drinks we became shocked. One by one opened his walled and found it empty of banknotes. We inmediately informed the Reception Desk and Manager but they refused to be reponsible and stated this had never happened so far. We ask for the police and gave them to full report. They also asked the Golf Resort Manager but he stated to have full confidence in his staff and they work for long time with them without any problem. The police officer mentioned privately to me he dosn'd trust that this would be true. We did not received any word or appologize from the Golf Resort Manager. He did not even talked to us. We have only lost at least € 1.050 all together. We have tried to find an amicable settlement with the Chairman of the Oceanico Group. Without success. We bought it to the charge and involved Portuguese loyers. But even during the official questioning from the police departement they refused until the end to feel not at all responsible for what has happened even the theft could have been only happened during the time between lets say 10 to 10:30 a.m. when our golf bags were in posession of the club staff. Our resumé?
Strong warning to all visitors. Don't leave any values in your golf bags. There are many other and nice golf course along the Algarve and we would never return to this Resort. Take it as given!

Great new course

Our Society visited this course for the second time recently. The facilities are fantastic and the golf extremely good given the relatively new history. Great variation of holes and in super condition. Far superior to the Faldo course and well worth a visit. Take advantage of the 'after noon' rates of €65 inclusive of buggy... represents extremely good value!

Tea times 8 minutes - very long waiting times in high season

Since this year, the new owners Kronos Homes and Kings Street Captital Management, New York, have reduced the tee time from 10 minutes to 8 minutes.
5 minutes before the current tee time have already waited 2 x 4 balls on the first tee. We needed almost 6 hours for 18 holes as 4s.
The new owners seem to have only interest in selling as many tee times as possible.
The place condition is very good. the staff go out of their way and are very friendly. Unfortunately, the new owners have no idea about golf or golf management.

Nice place, good condition

Have played the moderately difficult to heavy and after a series of rainy days again green place in early November 2018. Instead of ball-receiving pines, palm trees and many water and swamp obstacles adorn the sometimes long tracks. An HCP of at least 36 seems appropriate and you should also have enough balls. The lightning fast greens do not always lead to good "putting scores" because the balls hardly come to a halt. Overall, but a nice place in good condition with a nice clubhouse.

Perfect

Also here carts with GPS without length information. But the place is clear, not too heavy and is really fun!

Beautiful place, bad condition

We played the Patz at the beginning of January 2018. Actually, the place is very nice, the fairways are varied and interesting. If this were the end, then it would certainly be 4+ stars.

Unfortunately, I must add that the place was in very bad shape. The fairways were bone-dry, the grass in places completely withered. The sand bunkers were either rock hard or almost sand-free. Even the greens did not live up to their name. We played a number of other courses in the area before and after, but with the exception of the Faldo course (same resort, same operator), all the other courses were better!

Just as one imagines a perfect resort course before!
Wide fairways, palm over palm trees, great design and zero Rough!
Match pure fun!
A super clean golf course in Florida could have his home!

Super Site

We played the square end of January 14. The place shines with very good greens. The fairways are wide, but also sometimes unfair, since they depend partly strong, and although the fairway the ball was well hit but then jumps into the water or rolls.
Overall we Faldo, we played the day before, like better, not least because of the view.
The Club House is great and the prices are more than Moderate. The course can also be played well on foot.

Golf at its finest

Actually, I prefer to play the Faldo Course. Since the place had opened the first day, recommended to us to play the O'Connor. A place without substantial increases (unlike the Faldo!) With interesting paths, plenty of water and well maintained. To play the course is worthwhile in any case.

World-class golf course

We are the 2nd times within 3 years in the Algarve. This place is one of the best places we've ever played. Not so unspeakably (unfairly) as heavy as the adjacent FALDO course. In Excellent condition with a driving range of the super class! GOLF simply the best!

Super Golf Course

Have played this course at the turn of 2011/12. nothing going, generous space and spacious (stroller) created superbly maintained as worthwhile as the Faldoplatz. What is the real estate development is not clear how many places here!
