This is a tremendous course that can only get better. We played it no more than 16 months after it opened and it was in exemplary condition. There are perhaps two ordinary holes and the rest are challenging and beautifully set in scrub land and dunes near to the sea which is visible from every hole. It’s a physical course to play and next time I would take a buggy as there are some long walks between holes. I imagine high handicappers will struggle here; it is entirely unforgiving of the errant shot off fairway in which event, if you find it, you won’t have a shot. It must be at the very top of Portuguese courses. Currently there is very little housing development but this is planned and it is to be hoped that it will not detract from the current wonderful ambience.
