Of the 4 courses in the near vicinity, Obidos is on a par with Bom Successo and a big step behind West Cliffs and Praia del Rey. There is room off the tee which is a positive but the elevation changes and lushness of fairways make the experience a slog. It is a challenging course and one designed for tournament play. The front 9 is definitely more attractive and interesting with the back having a very American stadium course feel. The thing is though that to be fair, Seve did a good job in the design considering the land he had to utilise. If you have only one day in the area, play West Cliffs, if you have more time then add Praia to your schedule and if you have even more time in the area play West Cliffs again.
