Vale do Lobo Ocean Golf Course




Vale do Lobo resort’s Ocean course provides golfer an enjoyable experience with its distinctive design. Built with tight, undulating fairways, the course runs along nature reserve before dropping down to the coastline by the Atlantic Ocean. This specially designed golf course offers players with a challenge that is ‘half-parkland, half-links’.

In fact the Ocean course is a combination of two 9-hole courses, which were designed by Sir Henry Cotton himself. Eventually in 1995, it was merged into a full 18-hole course and offers golfers with a unique challenge.

Vale do Lobo Ocean Course is not very long, as it is a mere 6131 metres. But with tree lines on the front nine and ocean breeze on the back, it is imperative for golfers to be able to adapt to the style of play and adjust their game accordingly. Failure to do so would result in a high score and could cost you the round.

    "Would be great if I had an opportunity to come back here again"

    Unbelievable course, far better than any I have played back in the UK. Fantastic views, Ocean course Vale do Lobo was in mint condition, and the staff were very helpful. Would love to have another holiday here in the future.
