Not a dream place

Can a place deteriorate like this in a year? The course is far from being in good condition! The tees badly mowed, the fairways without grass and the greens full of holes. Every other place in Pestana is in better condition. Not to mention the 5 places next door in Vilamoura (but they are also more expensive).
Here a new headgreekeeper should be looked for or the nursing Budget increased.

Dream Place

In March 2019 played, top condition, difficult tracks - not unfair but just not easy;) I think everyone will be excited. Partly undulating greens, old pine trees - wonderful - afterwards delicious burgers on the terrace of the very nice club house - a great day - always happy!

Great area, nice paths and well maintained

The complex is very large and spacious. The course care good and the individual tracks not always easy to play thanks to the many pines. Every golfer will surely have fun here. The greens are fair and in good condition. The area was very populated.

Bad condition of the fairways

We played the five Pestana courses in the Algarve at the beginning of March 2019. The least we liked was the Vila Sol. The fairways are in very bad shape. Big bald spots and a lot of old divots that have not been repaired. The greens and slopes were however good condition.

Very disappointing!

We (3 players from HC 13 to 17)
have this place because of the very good reviews in the Albrecht Golführer in September

Played in 2017.
The condition of the teats leaves something to be desired. Fairways and greens were also in no good condition. All in all the place is difficult - especially the holes 1 to 9th of us there is no recommendation, since we have played in this region much more beautiful places. The price-performance ratio is not.

5 stars despite some shortcomings.

03/23/2017: (19-27 and 1-9) Definitely one of the highlights of the Golfweek.
3 x 9 holes, all different characters.
Great clubhouse, great restaurant great service.
Very nice caddy master.
Strict but kind and helpful Marshalls.
I find also very good in order to preserve the game flow.
Very beautiful and varied, difficult-light, short-long, flat-hilly, water-without water, small-large greens, difficult-simple greens, visually great holes. Very well placed obstacles.
Not for nothing one of Europe's top 30 courses.
The negative:
Fairways partially dried or as if burned, some bare patches, Worst: Some large wild grass infestation, mostly fairway edge - the divot does not look like a bill but as a circular area (DM 20-30 cm) depending on how large the wild tuft of grass is. Must not be at such a beautiful place. Often one is in front of such a grass book - even on the fairway.
Nevertheless, at any time to be recommended again and immediately.
Bravo

The was it not

Among the Pestanaplätzen us this was my least favorite. We could start with 19-27 and that was just tedious. The starting hole begins relatively broad and leisurely. After that, it is narrow and boring. Over several holes left out, right trees, straight - without finesse with bad fairways.
The 1-9 were fine: a beautiful park course with varied holes.
The pro shop was disappointing (no choice, all open boxes). The clubhouse very generous and wonderful view of the final hole.

Golf experience at its finest

We played this beautiful, varied and challenging place on 21 and 22 July 2016th Offered was a very fair 'summer special' for 2 persons incl. E-cart for a total of 135 €. Here, then, is true just about everything - from maintenance state on the price-performance ratio up to the clubhouse with a wide range. Pine-lined paths and long narrow fairways require a total of high precision and greatest concentration. This place is not for beginners. For all other golf enthusiasts it is an experience of the extra class!!!
The attentive staff club is worth a particularly appreciative Bermerkung. Tea Times necessarily timely reservations.

End of season trip

We are allowed to play the course a week and had to play all 27 holes in various combinations.
The court showed its best side in the best care condition. Narrow lanes and many pine ensured exciting challenges. All in all a great place.

Beautiful demanding course

We played the course in Jan. 2015. The place was well kept, the greens wonderful. The square itself is difficult to play, because the fairways are narrow and often lined with pine trees. There are several DogLeggs, which can then be more incline to the other side. But these challenges make the golfing yes really interesting. Was a really nice day of golf!

A hammer!

Top spot with super neat haircuts and very fast greens!
Very challenging and difficult for anyone!
The pine trees can bring one to tears.
Again at any time! The place is super!

A beautiful day of golf

A beautiful golf course with well manicured fairways and greens in a typically Mediterranean environment with many pine trees. The Electric Buggy 40 Euro (unit price at the Pestana seats) equipped with GPS and like new. The fairways are very varied and challenging, but not difficult. At the end of the beautiful clubhouse with equal terrace. Here you'll find daily specials and drinks at reasonable prices with friendly service.

Price / performance value

Vila Sol is a topping plant, with good Uebungseinrichtungen and a beautiful clubhouse. My daughter had a week of training there, and the Pro Richard Hudson is really very, very good. The place is not easy, since length and Precision are asked (many fairways fringed by trees). With the best Gruen, Vilamoura. From the afternoon there is green fee / Buggy offers.

Precision is important

The overall total of 27 holes are challenging. After the construction activity has waned, the fault is no longer represented by the construction work. For beginners, the course is a real challenge.
