Vale do Lobo Royal - latest comments and reviews

James Betts 2024-05-22
The course was great, lovely course. I was paired up with 3 Scottish guys players. One had his father with him all in Buggies. Really nice group of people. On the back 9 a Marshall came up and asked why we were playing as a 5 ball! We weren't we had four players plus one spectator. The Marshall came back 5 mins later and said the group behind had seen us playing as a 5 ball, and that they were members. I didn't know the Scottish guys but I told the Marshall that this was a blatant lie by the group behind as we only ever had 4 players with one spectator. This incident was unpleasant and affected the last 7 holes of my round on a beautiful course. For the record we completed the round in 3 hours and 48 mins keeping up & waiting for the group in front. Anyone especially members should not lie and get Marshalls to confront players. To be fair the Marshall believed us the second visit but it wasn't good. Kind Regards James

Course condition, particularly buggy paths wasn’t as good as you’d expect, but closing holes as always special.

Could you marshal duty on 16th as people skipped in line and snook in to make a que with later teetime

Andrew Finnie 2024-03-11
Fabulous course and facilities, we waited 5 holes and 1 hour 30 min for drinks,not so good.

Was way too slow , I had to wait on every shot I hit . Tbh I think apart from parque de Flores ya it is the poorest course I have played

Gordon Nicolson 2023-12-12
Course very good for the time of year. Tee Times Booking first class as always however the round was incredibly slow and decided to turn in at the 10th.

Wir waren das letzte flight heute und hatten 3 3er flight vor und sodaß wir leider an jedem Loch warten mußten und nur bis Loch 16 gespielt haben. Leider hatten wir die Greenkeeper die ganze Zeit hinter und vor uns, was von der Geräuschkulisse echt unangenehm war, schlimmer als das warten um weiterspielen zu können. Die Jungs vom Cartservice sind super nett, der Platz ist super schön. Werden dort wieder spielen. -**- We were the last flight today and had 3 flights of 3 in front of us, so unfortunately we had to wait at every hole and only played up to hole 16. Unfortunately we had the greenkeepers behind and in front of us the whole time, which was really unpleasant from the background noise, worse than waiting to be able to continue playing. The guys from the cart service are super nice, the course is really beautiful. We will play there again.

Greens not great and too much sand in bunkers. Layout and fairways good

Simon Moroney 2023-11-17
Surprised to discover that the greens had been aerated recently and there was no notification either on booking or at the clubhouse. This is information that should be shared with players in advance.

Nice course but felt like we had to hurry last 8 holes due to predator people whine us which took the enjoyment out a bit
