A truly magnificent golf track. Beautiful as well. Condition is always a concern as the company that owns this course do not seem to appreciate the merits of keeping this course in good condition. Greens are good though. We played this course twice this week...More

Played this course numerous times. Scenery still srunning. Course is getting tired. Greens are not as good as they used to be. Major downside, 6 hour rounds and a Marshall more interested in who has ordered a Tuna sandwich than getting it moving. Won't go...More

The golf course was in very poor shape, greens were very slow and shaggy. Fairways had very little grass on them. Not really a good golf course as for the layout and golf holes. Very poor value for the money

It's included if you stay at the Dona Filipe but circa 140 Euros if you just pitch up to the golf course.
