Vale do Lobo
Based on original concepts by the legendary, late Sir Henry Cotton re-developed by respected American Golf Architect, Rocky Roquemore, The Royal Course and The Ocean Course examine a golfer’s game like few courses can. The Royal, set amongst lakes and lush vegetation, takes players through pine and fig tree bordered fairways, then surprises with exhilarating sea views. Including 3 demanding par 3 holes one of which is the magnificent cliff-top 16th hole. Originally the 7th hole, this has a spectacular carry over the russet cliffs and is one of the most celebrated golfing images in the world. The Ocean, highly regarded for its breath-taking scenic beauty, is a veritable golfers’ feast. Flanked by luxurious pine and eucalyptus trees, the course’s gently undulating fairways run down to the shores of the Atlantic. Developing along the very edge of the coastline, it allows golfers to tee-off alongside some of the most incredible ocean views in the Algarve. A combination of links and inland golf provides an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all standards.
