Golf courses

Prime Course

The Prime loop is considered by locals to be the most difficult at Vila Sol, measuring 3,544 yards, where negotiating the tough opening holes requires accurate and powerful driving. The penalties for missing the fairways are severe, so placing the ball strategically from the tee is of paramount importance.

STATS

Designed by: Donald Steel

Opened for play: 1991

Par: Par 36

TEES

Yellow tees: 3241 metres (3544 yards), Par 36, SSS 36

Blue tees: 3032 metres (3316 yards), Par 36, SSS 36

Red tees: 2728 metres (2983 yards), Par 36, SSS 36

Challenge Course

The Challenge loop - 3,383 yards - is generally known as the back nine of Vila Sol's testing championship layout, but as opposed to the exacting tee shots of the Prime, its main defences are the heavily undulating greens. Be sure to keep the ball below the hole, as putting downhill here can be treacherous to say the least.

Blue tees: 2943 metres (3219 yards), Par 36, SSS 36

Red tees: 2678 metres (2929 yards), Par 36, SSS 36

Prestige Course

The Prestige is Vila Sol's shortest nine, at 3,367 yards, but is certainly no pushover; while Steel only worked a mere five bunkers into his design, he skillfully manipulated the indigenous features of the land to create a demanding test. The fairways are narrow on the Prestige, so be sure to keep it straight from the tee.

Vila Sol is also home to a comprehensive golf academy, where the lessons and clinics utilise the latest tuition technology, and can be tailor-made to target specific areas of weakness.

The 6th on the Prime is the resort's signature, an astounding par-5 where you must hit three great shots to weave through the numerous lakes that threaten all around.

With superb views over the lakes, gardens or golf course, the spacious rooms are equipped with all the modern amenities and features that are required of a good 5* destination. The hotel is constructed around a central core of public and meeting areas, creating an extremely sociable atmosphere that helps to make the Vila Sol hotel such a great holiday venue.

The Vila Sol SPA is a haven of relaxation, where the endless range of treatments is designed to bring balance to both the physical and spiritual parts of the body.

Golfer reviews

The golf courses and the hotel were both excellent...

Just wanted to say thanks for the time you took with us and for booking the weekend away at Vila Sol; all 8 of us had a brilliant time. The golf courses and the hotel were both excellent and we drank all of Portugal's Super Bock!

It's looking likely that we will be doing it again next year and wondered if you could quote us again. We have no intention of getting quotes elsewhere due to YGT being so on the ball with this trip.

Every possible piece of apparatus to aid our comfort...

The Vila Sol hotel was very good and their staff were first class, especially Edgar who looked after all our transport to the courses and from our apartment to Villamoura town on a night. The apartments were excellent with every possible piece of apparatus to aid our comfort within.

Vila Sol 1-18 was very good and next time we visit we would like to play the 1-18 straight, we played 19-27 & 1-9 then 9-18 & 19-27 again. At Pinhal everyone enjoyed the course layout and Laguna is another really nice course where a number of balls were lost in the many lakes and good scores broken by the many bunkers; but again we all enjoyed it.

We all really enjoyed the golf courses...

Everything on our golf holiday to Vila Sol went very smoothly from start to finish. We all really enjoyed the golf courses and the nightlife was good fun too.

I look forward to booking for next year and will definitely be back in touch with yourgolftravel.

The apartments at Vila Sol were fantastic...

I just wanted to thank you for putting together such a great package at short notice for myself and two friends. It was during after-golf beers on Thursday that it was suggested that a short golf break in Portugal would be a good idea and by Friday morning you had a holiday set up for us...great service!

Three people is not an easy number to accommodate however the apartments at Vila Sol were fantastic. They were too far away from the main hotel to walk but the hotel was very good at getting us transport to and from and we had a fantastic three days. We are already thinking about next year but will definitely not leave it to the last minute next time.

Vila Sol was first class...

Thanks for all your help in organising this mega golf trip. Everything went down really well, the golf was awesome, Vila Sol was first class and I really appreciate all of Your Golf Travel's efforts, help and advice.

The Vila Sol complex was stunning...

What a fab time us girls had in Vila Sol. We enjoyed great recommendation which, as trip organiser, I am especially thankful for!

The Vila Sol complex was stunning although we really wish we had discovered the spa earlier in the trip! The onsite and golf course shuttle bus service was excellent and taxis into Villamoura were pretty cheap and easy to obtain.

I can’t fault the golf courses which were immaculate and were wonderfully staffed. Even the weather was great but I’m not giving you credit for that!

All the group said how much they enjoyed the golf course...

Just thought I would drop you a line to say how the golf trip went. The weather on th first and second day was a bit dull but stayed dry and the third day was dry and warm.

The hotel, breakfast and room could not be faulted as we had no problems at all. The room was a 2 bedroom room with a small living room which was perfect for what we needed.

All the group said how much they enjoyed the golf course even though it had tight fairways and you needed to be quite accurate with your shots but the challenge of playing them outwayed the difficultly even for our 27 handicappers.

Another well organised and enjoyable golf trip...

A big thank you to yourgolftravel for another well organised and enjoyable golf trip, from which I think we have all just about recovered from!

Everything went really smoothly from our collection at the airport to checking in at the hotel and then the 3 rounds of golf. We played in what can only be described as superb conditions with the sun shining constantly.

Great place for professional coaching trips

I would like to thank Nick Bishop at Your Golf Travel for organising my latest coaching trip to Vila Sol in Portugal. From putting the package together initially through to the completion of the trip, Nick and his team were helpful, professional and adaptable as changes to the itinerary became necessary.

We stayed at the Vila Sol resort for 3 nights and as well as using their academy to do the coaching sessions we also played the 9 hole course on the Friday and the 18 hole championship course on the Monday. Sandwiched between these were 18 hole rounds at the beautiful Vale Do Lobo Royal and the Qunita Do Logo North course.

The organisation of the trip was first class, all the different transfers were always on time and even when I needed some changes made they were done seamlessly. My customers were really impressed with how smoothly everything went, from when they arrived at Faro airport to when they returned there, they had to think of nothing as it had all been taken care of.

Having used Vila Sol several times now for these golf coaching trips, the service they gave was also outstanding. They upgraded all the guests rooms to suites and allowed us all to have a late check out on the final day meaning that we could play the Vila Sol course, return to our rooms and shower and change before heading off to the airport, a service that really helped make the customers experience special.

I would thoroughly recommend both Your Golf Travel, and in particular Nick Bishop, and the Vila Sol resort and area for a golf break, you will not be disappointed.
