From the road, Royal Obidos looked likely to be a typical 'modern' course which whilst having plenty of water otherwise may have been pretty featureless. Based on this i was extremely reticent to play the course and was much more in favor of another day surfing or another round at Praia del Rey. How wrong could i have been.... everything about Royal Obidos is pure class; an excellent challenging course course in fantastic condition, particularly the greens; a superbly designed clubhouse which is a pleasure to get changed in and food served of the highest standard. Every detail is taken care of at Royal Obidos. In my view the course was far superior to Praia del Rey, which is also an excellent course. I do have some advice however; consider getting a buggy, we walked the course and we certainly knew about it afterwards.
