It was okay back 9 better than front 9. Buggy is a must but be careful Buggy paths a bit tricky in places. Only downside was stuck behind a mixed four ball who took over 2 hours to play 6 holes. Need to contact golf reception to sort it.

Jim Lewis 2023-04-02
Nice course, a bit difficult playing for the first time. Some blind shots and certain ones where placement is very important. Would have been good to have a bit of information on the card to describe each hole.

Harald Chartron 2023-03-24
Zu schwierig für mich, Hcp 16. -**- Too difficult for me, Hcp 16.

Iain 2023-02-10
A nice track but a bit shabby

Warrick Dawson 2023-02-07
Very undulating course with few flat lies on the front nine.

Gillian Dawson 2023-01-28
Friendly staff , hilly course with lovely views.

David Harvey 2023-01-26
I enjoyed the game even though the wind got up on the back 9. The course is very hilly so it can be testing on the legs, and lungs. Greens were good and fairways generous.

Inge Verhoeven 2023-01-08
A very existing course, lots of steap hills and ondulated fairways. Every hole needs course management. It’s totally different from Palmares golf. Inlands and not as luxurious. But hospitality very pleasant and good food. The greens needed some repair. A bit outdated at times.

Paul Gray 2022-10-27
Great course and cheaper than anywhere else in peak season.

Adrian Brooks 2022-10-17
Course was looking a bit tired in places but still a good visit.

MOGENS HOLST 2022-09-29
Very fine cource

Charles Coe 2022-09-23

Sean Desmond 2022-09-18
Terrible course. It shouldn't be called a golf course. Very poor course in very bad condition. Too much hilly walking. Will never go back there again. All round a bad experience for all four. Couldn't wait to get to the 9th hole and leave

Iain 2022-09-18
Interesting course, not in fantastic condition, good price

Peter Johnston 2022-08-22
Decent course in pretty good condition. Buggies a bit old

Martin Chamberlain 2022-07-28
Great service, great advice

Roger Moyse 2022-06-20
looking a little uncared for- needs work.

David Elliott 2022-06-15
Course condition not good ,, greens particularly full of fusarium which is not good , generally upkeep of course not as one would expect , disappointed

J.P. Visser 2022-06-10
Bad mantained thirst 9 holes. Very friendly People.

Dave Green 2022-05-25
Always enjoyed playing here. Good pace around the golf course.

Charles Coe 2022-05-01
Very good

Malcolm Maxwell 2022-04-29
3 of our players had not played the course before and were very impressed with the course quality and scenery.

Ian Chance 2022-04-11
Great service as usual so keep up the good work.

Dr. Michael Wittwer 2022-03-29
The best, I can say, it´s cheap. More an adventure game, than a golf course. The course is not in a good shape, but the greens are o.k. Very hilly and a buggy is strongly recommended. The staff was friendly, the little restaurant we did not visit. Not a bad golf day, but we will not play it again.

Christiane Jacobsen 2022-03-04
Really a wonderful area, for climbers and mountain Wanderers, but not to play Golf! After 14 years we tried it again, but sorry, never again. Good greens, the fairways and the shape could be better. Nice surrounding, but thats it.

Marion Brosens 2021-04-25
Lovely but very beautiful course.

Jon Bowden 2020-03-23
Good course like last year , cheers

Tim Triglone 2020-03-23
Fantastic layout, however in very poor condition

Mark Lawman 2020-03-13
Great days golf favourite of the week course in great condition

Niall Mc Guigan 2020-03-02
Hired out buggies but had to walk most of it because we weren’t allowed on 8 of the fairways with the buggies ! Would need to be very fit to climb up and down all the hills. Ranger was a real jobs worth . Extremely windy Paths are very steep and would be dangerous in the wet Seemed like a club that didn’t really want visitors

Mal McLaughlin 2020-02-28
good course

Roland Nilsson 2020-01-29
The course is like a rollercoaster, a lot of hidden holes, green's very good. Great views . But not a real golf course

Joe drake 2020-01-21
Staff very friendly and helpful.

Boitard Jean-Paul 2019-12-12
Golf de montagne ,très bien dessiné, buggy obligatoire, vu les distance et le terrain accidenté.

Jean Harings 2019-11-26
rather good, Hilly course, some alomst impossible holes, Beuatiiful surroundings

Arne Dahlstrom 2019-11-24
Fantastic nice and varied course.

Gerald m meehan 2019-11-15
Course played quite tough in the breeze but very enjoyable

Lorraine Bennett 2019-11-07
Excellent day’s golf at an attractive and well maintained course with friendly and welcoming staff.

David Standing 2019-10-25
Played this many times over the years, still love the challenges I offers very good day

Robert Coleman 2019-10-16
Beautiful course. Some quirky holes on front 9 but had a great day. Starter friendly and welcoming. Would happily play again.

Maren Liehr 2019-10-15
Everything was perfect!

Roger Moyse 2019-10-12
Enjoyed thwe challenge

Lee Donaldson 2019-10-08
Played the course same time last year and found this year it played a bit better for knowing the layout. A nice welcome at the clubhouse and pro helped with a couple of things. We had 2 in buggies, 4 with electric trolleys and 1 with a pull trolley. It is very hard going with the pull trolley !! Best advice is book buggies before you visit as they only had a couple available for our group with a 1pm tee. All aspects of course maintenance were good, a couple of the greens played at different pace to the others but that’s to be expected with the different terrain. Nice balcony to relax after the round and although a bi5 of a way out from where we were staying worth the drive for first round of five in five days. Good value for money given the general prices on the Algarve

Mark Wincer 2019-09-15
Helpful and friendly

William Townson 2019-09-13
A quirky course that requires getting used to! When you understand the strategic nature of the course, one can then relax and plot your way around. A buggy certainly helps with the hills, valleys and slopes. A reasonably priced day out for some fun holiday golf. Condition was good in general with greens running nicely. Tees a little worn but it’s summer and hot. Worth a visit as this course is nothing like other Algarve courses.

Christopher Davies 2019-09-12
Everything was very efficient we managed to go off early by an hour teeing off on the 10th which was good for us! I had quite forgotten what a beautiful course it was and what a delight it was to play! Thanks for your help in organizing our golf!

William Townson 2019-09-06
I enjoyed the course, it took a few holes to settle into the hilly vagaries of the lay out. Which slop do I aim for! An interesting day, challenging hole, not always the driver, fairway or rescue club from tees for accuracy. Greens in decent condition but slower than I usually play on. Holiday course, definitely use a buggy or you will be a 5 stone lighter!

Ian Holland 2019-06-14
Brilliant reception. Friendly staff. Course and greens terrific. All golfers really happy.

Christopher Avraam 2019-06-08
Another great course on the algarve with many outstanding holes! If your in the region and you like a course with elevation changes this is a must play.

Ian Chance 2019-05-27
Tough course but very good. You must use a buggy as it’s very hilly. A bit unfortunate as they have just done the greens and they are very bumpy.

Spliethoff 2019-05-17

Pascal Plichta 2019-05-11
Très beau parcours. Très vallonné. Prendre buggy.le terrain est en très bon état. Les greens sont magnifiques

Simon Ferguson 2019-05-04
Nice people, very hilly so take a buggy could do with sand in bunkers and a water buggy as in the heat it is required

David Weeks 2019-05-03
Very good service and a fun but tricky course. You need a buggy.

Spliethoff 2019-05-02
A marvellous and challenging course with a lot of wind which gives playing there an extra dimension. Nice clubhouse and good service. Beatifull surroundings. We ll defay there again

St-Hilaire 2019-05-01
Very difficult course but picturesque ! Not very woman friendly however...too long...Finally, greens don’t always keep the line...maybe the grass was a bit long. Quite a challenging golf course.

CHARLES COE 2019-04-15
Very good.

Dr. Markus Feidicker 2019-04-14
very nice and beautiful golf course, which was in excellent shape. challenging, but fair. Clubhouse ok. would definitely come back

Tim forrest 2019-04-12
Great layout of a golf course. No sand in bunkers. Tees uneven. Fairways and greens goid.

Stuart Armstrong 2019-04-06
Hilly course requiring buggies but well improved

alexmcghee 2019-03-23
Excellent golf course and service. Transfer drivers all extremely professional and polite.

gerald m meehan 2019-03-15
We had two very enjoyable rounds. There are a few tough tee shots on the course but a very enjoyable experience. Good pint and food in the spike bar

Cathy Cirko 2019-02-26
Check in was a breeze, because it was extreme.y windy, it did color our experience. Front nine is a bit quirky but the back nine was more of a normal course. Overall though good.

Matti Piirainen 2019-02-25
I have played there first time 1992, so it is like my homecource in Algarve

WINKELMANN Brigitte 2019-02-21
A nice and relaxed round of Golf on a difficult course. Not so busy as many other courses in the Algarve. A buggy is highly recommended, even if you have to stay on the path at some holes (not only the Par 3). If you do like only flat courses, this is the wrong place for you.

Kathy pennington 2019-02-20
Thoroughly enjoyed our game on this physically demanding course. It made our home course which is well known for its hills seem quite tame. We walked the course but would recommend a buggy, particularly as distances from green to tee can be quite long. Also, don't forget to pick up a course map as it isn't printed on the scorecard. We will probably play it again when we return next year.

Roland Nilsson 2019-02-08
Very nice and challenging course

markus hoffmann 2019-01-05
just perfect!

Martin Georg Hilke 2018-12-14
Nice Course, sunny location,

Daphne Ledger 2018-11-17
Very nice back nine but the front nine has three silly blind holes We managed to get buggy due to a cancellation don’t know weather we could have managed to walk it Everyone was very nice and friendly

Jason Robinson 2018-11-17
Underrated course, the cheapest I have played and one of the best lovely scenery very hilly but some of the holes are amazing

Bill Young 2018-11-14
Very busy course with some VERY slow players!! Otherwise course in good condition and staff pleasant.

James Barr 2018-11-09
Undulating course. Condition was excellent. Buggies a must. Overall great value for money. Better value than some of its more illustrious neighbours.

Steve Pratt 2018-11-05
Quick and easy ... Very happy

Fred Zickmantel 2018-10-31
Golf carts need mechanical overhaul. Difficult, however enjoyable

Max De Groot 2018-10-31
Poorly maintained buggy roads leading to slippery and dangerous situations. Moreover, many Mickey mouse holes. Not a recommendable course.

Richard Garton 2018-10-29
Very friendly team, good food and a very tricky but good course. Hilly to say the least.

Michael Hardman 2018-10-20
Played the course which is testing on previous visits. Course in good condition and good facilities including food/bar.

Michael Cox 2018-10-11
Excellent all was good thanks

Jochem Schmitz 2018-10-10
nice course in good conditions

Jim Hardman 2018-10-03
Nice course fairways good, greens not bad but not all the same, but enjoyable.

mr m rajowski 2018-10-03
to hilly for me had to get out and walk most of the course as you could not take buggy on some fairways

Colin smith 2018-09-30
Enjoyed the course. Fairways were in good condition but the greens had a lot of unrepaired pitch marks. However they were fast and nice to putt on the. Staff on the course were extremely courteous. My only complaint would be the price of a buggy!!!!!! at 50 euro surely the most expensive on the Algarve. As I only paid 55 euro for the round that came as a bit of a shock

Andy Ford 2018-09-13
Interesting and challenging course in good condition with friendly staff. Long drive to get there but well worth the effort.

Matthias Anklam 2018-07-14
Toller, ungewöhnlicher und nicht einfacher Platz

Heather Anderson 2018-06-26
Beautiful course not for beginners

Phil Sharpe 2018-06-25
Very hilly, meaning many above / below feet fairway shots, and most penal even for the straight drives which head down the slopes. Many blind shots as well, with the 6th being painful to know where the ball has actually landed even after a straight tee shot. As you’re not allowed to use your buggies on a number of holes and due to the slopes, you can spend an age wondering where your ball has landed / ended up on the blind shots. That said, the greens were in very good condition and there are some lovely looking golf holes.

David Elcock 2018-06-24
A well maintained and interesting course.

James John Galbraith 2018-06-11
Lovely course well laid out but the worst bunkers I have experienced golfed there many times

Brian Miller 2018-05-16
Good experience playing at Santo Antonio as expected. It was helpful for me to be assigned to play along with others when I was alone. There is a little maintenance required on a few parts of the course - e.g. I was surprised to be playing the 18th hole from a temporary tee.

Gary Watts 2018-03-30
What a beautiful golf course, only spoiled by having to keep to the buggy paths, you end up walking further, up and down the hills of the fairways. Although we were in buggies I couldn't recommend this course to anyone who isn't very fit. Can't take anything away from the beauty of this golf course though, It's challenging but good scores are achievable.

Ian chance 2018-03-22
First time I have played this course and it was very challenging but very picturesque. The staff where friendly and helpful. Highly recommend if you want to test your game. I play off 12 and scored 89 so was happy with that. Make sure you have a buggy as it’s hilly.

Klaus Krausen 2018-03-20
Very nice course. Challenging natural profile. Hilly character and some hidden greens make for a demanding but very nice golf day. Buggy could be useful. Lovely setting of the club house and patio together with its friedly stuff make this visit perfect. Improvement suggestion. It would help guest flights which come for the first time to find complete and more destinct ' Next Tee ' indication.

ian jetten 2018-03-19
very good course in excellent condition

Caspar von der Crone 2018-03-15
great place in the mountains, that makes the game varied and I look forward to the next visit

H. Seifert 2018-03-14
Because of the topography, you have to play a second time to play it with pleasure. The course has seen better times and urgently needs maintenance so that it doesn't get any further. The brakes of all the buggies we used were in poor condition. Friendly staff and good service at the club restaurant.

Martin West 2018-03-12
Fantastic customer service picturesque course with some tough holes I eould tecommend this course

Eric Costen 2018-02-21
Pro shop staff very friendly and helpful. Was able to play with a couple that was more familiar. With the course and had averyenjoyable round. I found the course to be in very good shape. It had been in 2004 that I played the course last.. looking forward to playing there again.

Matti Piirainen 2017-11-22
My first visit to this cources was 1992 and I still admire its beautiful layout.

Mark Wincer 2017-11-14
The course was well presented. We started on our tee time and had a clear hole ahead and behind us. A very enjoyable round and good food in the clubhouse..

CHARLES COE 2017-11-08
Enjoyed the golf. Everybody was friendly and helpful.

Germ Kemper 2017-11-07
Very nice course. We love to play there.

Sebastian Mellin 2017-11-07
Very nice course, a few blind shots (tee shot 6, seconds on 8 and 10). Fairways in good shape, excellent greens. Friendly personal.

David Phillips 2017-10-26
Very interesting course all enjoyed Will go back and hope for less wind

John Reilly 2017-10-25

Michael Hardman 2017-10-21
Always a pleasure to play this course great holes

Denise Earley 2017-09-30
First time to play this course back nine very good again staff very helpful

Rory White 2017-06-19
Really fun and enjoyable course to play, nice variety of holes. Value for money.

David Hizzett 2017-05-18
Be aware the course closes at 18:45 so make sure you have enough time to complete your round, we had a delay due to rain which meant time was a little tight, although we did get round in time, buggy needed otherwise it's a long walk. Super course, some great challenging holes but plays fair for all standards. Definitely recommend this course.

Gerry Malone 2017-04-12
Always a pleasure to play.

Michael Patrick Manogue 2017-04-11
everything was first clasd with this golf course hope to return some time in the futher

Eduard Reinhart 2017-03-05
Preiswert aber leider auch Billigqualität - nur auf Cartweg befahrbar, zahlreiche blinde Schüsse, wo dann auch der perfekte Ball nicht mehr zu finden ist. Buggy sinnlos, da viel seitliches Gefälle und dauernde Ballsuche durch ungepflegte Fairways (Grasinseln)

Helmut Zagler 2017-02-26

Päivi Melkko 2017-02-25
Interesting, variable

James McClure 2017-01-30
The staff was friendly and very helpful. I thought the course in pretty good condition considering it was January. Greens were fast with a lot of undulation.

Kelvin Lawton 2016-10-09
Always excellent. First out in the morning - can't be beaten.

Andy Bryant 2016-09-26
Bit disappointed that we had to wait for buggies ( very apologetic ) when we had booked them as part of the package way in advance. Should not be hard to know how many you need in a day and allocate accordingly. Course in great shape as ever, always challenging

Klaus Grossmann 2016-06-06
Course has improved again under new ownership. well maintained. Very nice to play.

Geoff Dobinson 2016-05-27
Lovely courses and efficient friendly people. Looked after us very well

Mark King 2016-05-01
This is the 3rd time I have played St.Antonio, we enjoy the variety of holes at the course.

Christian Pelz 2016-01-27
Sehr hügeliger,anspruchsvoller Platz,den man taktisch klug spielen muß.

Matti Piirainen 2015-11-29
We liked mostly and played three times in same week.

Jean Harings 2015-11-08
beautiful scenery, nice course, buggy was fine

Michael Hardman 2015-10-27
Course in excellent condition. 9th hole unfair golf hole due to limited landing area for economic shot followed by long 3rd. You booked us in for an extra game on the 16th. We could not play as was too foggy. Voucher given for a round up to end of October 2016

Michael Hardman 2015-10-24
Testing course.was in good condition. Some difficult holes particularly the 9th which is the most difficult hole on the course and is unfair due to slope of the land and narrow landing area for second or third shot followed by long uphill shot to green
