Review for Islantilla (Verde & Azul)

Review:

We played the green/blue combination twice on successive days. This is definitely resort golf, in fact it is very hard to believe that a European Tour event was held here.

The greens are excellent, true, and in terrific condition. Fairways and tees are a bit rough.

The green course, which was our front nine is pretty bland and unmemorable, although the par 3 2nd is an excellent mid-distance uphill hole, very difficult to club. On the blue course there are a couple of really good holes, the par 3 2nd, a longish carry across water to a shallow tiered green, and the very good uphill par 4 9th.

In the main the fairways are narrow, and this could not be called a driving course.

No more than OK, but the hotel is nice enough and the area is easily accessible from Faro airport.

However, we will not return. El Rompido, just down the road, has two much better courses and is a smarter hotel.
