The first 4 fairways are downhill, almost 150 meters and the. You start climbing back :-). The fairways were dry but greens and the areas around in deep grass. The roughs have been cleared so gone are the thick brushy sides and now you can...More

Played Desertas and Machico courses with my son in August using the courtesy bus to get to the course. The course is in a fantastic location but unfortunately it was blowing a gale and the cloud surrounded the clubhouse (we can't control the weather!). I...More

It's a great course and worth to play it. It has three 9-hole parts. If you visit it for the first time try to book the Machico and Desertas part with great views. Sometimes the bunkers are flooded and not in very good conditions but...More
