Nothing wrong...

A lot of up and down, may be better to drive the course and not to walk.
Fairways is pretty good quality, greens not bad either, a bit too slow.
Design and layout not interesting enough.
Would not play again...

Simply beautiful and priced in order

The Ocean Course we have now played in June 2019 and this early in the morning. We started at 7:20 after registering in the modern clubhouse. From the raised tee of the 1 hole you have a nice view. In my mind, I'm still at par 3 on the 7th high tee and a narrow hall to the green, which you can easily reach with some precision with the first punch. With the 8 it goes up steeply as well as with the 9. Here is to be careful at the tee and to play his ball to the right, however, to keep an eye on the watercourse. At the 11 you knock the ball off the tee and can orientate on the black / white pole in the middle fairway. At the top you can see the sea-oriented green. The 13 liked more very well because here too precision is required to reach the green which is located on a plateau. With the 14 it goes on a wide fairway towards the sea and beach and this without much difficulty. In the 15 you play along the beach and must take into account the wind blowing from the Atlantic ago. The green is protected by a bunker and over the entire length of the track, everything is out of bounds on the left side. Be careful here because you tend to keep the wind to your left but if it does not blow at that moment... the ball is in the undergrowth. Generally a great course in good condition and lined with trees along the fairways that make one or the other time headaches and yet are good for any mediocre golfer to play. After the round, I showed the rental man my rented set from the Vale de Lobo for € 45 where the putter, wedge, sand wedge handles were smooth and no trace of grip. He could not do anything here was the answer. The material would be just like that. Therefore, I can only recommend to anyone to do a control of the grips before the round and this at a price of € 45. The fairy for € 91 was fine and the staff was very nice too.

Great sea holes, but otherwise...

I prefer the Ocean Course to the Royal. Fortunately there is more than a great hole (especially in the direction respectively at the sea), here the place can compete with the high class competition in the Algarve. All in all, however, the ocean course lacks homogeneity. Sometimes great, sometimes moderate, sometimes quite generous, then tight again. You can see that the space was developed in stages, that different designs were merged and partially supplemented. In the end, the impression remains that Vale do Lobo is more about selling villas and apartments than golf. Although holes 11-15 are fun, there is a more convincing golf design in the Algarve.
