When travelling to the algarve we always play the Royal & Ocean courses in Vale do lobo. The fairways on the ocean are wider compared to the royal and is much easier to get your drive away, plus the distance of the course is on the short side but the whole setting of the course along the beech is great. No hole is the same and the par 5 4th is a great test if you get a good drive, then only to deal with a tough but rewarding shot over water. The whole course is manicured to perfection plus the staff in the club house are always very friendly. Only draw back was it is a bit pricey @ 110 euros.
