Like with all truly great courses, every single hole is a memorable event on the Old Course of Vilamoura. In 1969 this course, which was designed by Frank Pennick, opened up and in 1996 after expensive restuarations it reopened. The natural contours of the landscape were nonetheless preserved and the vegetation, which mostly consists of stone pines, was integrated. Golfers will like to remeber this course.
Played end 2011. Old Course is more of a "park course", and therefore different than most other Algarve alternatives. The advantage is that you're more secluded, that wind is less of a factor, but obviously that trees are more in play. Nice course, nice layout. Very poor "club house facilities". Shower rooms from 1982, and I think the cleaner left in 2004? Restaurant simple, and at best "OK".

I played the course in June 2013. The course is beautifull and in excellent condition and when you take the twilight offer (I started at 14.30 pm) it is only EUR 74, a buggy is only EUR 20 (10 pp) and (excellent !) Titleist rental cub were only EUR 10. In total for less than EUR you can play a beautifull course!!

Spectacular old course. Great condition and fun to play. 6th hole, a 223 yard beauty. Pricey, but worth it.
