The predominant character of the course comes as a result of the rolling landscape that is heavily populated by Umbrella and Atlantic Pines. These trees are frequently obstacles to the visiting golfer, while there are also streams and a lake that can be decidedly tricky.
To keep up with the advancements in golf technology, the Pinhal recently lengthened a number of holes, and the resultant 6,947 yards is a genuine pleasure to play during a golf escape in the popular resort town.
Course wasn’t the best I’ve seen it
A very mature tree lined course. Couldn't fault the greens and fairways. This course rated number two out of the three courses that we played. You definitely need a golf buggy for this course as there is some distance from green to tee box on some of the holes.
Stunning Golf course.
A lovely setting with some challenging but enjoyable holes. The new terrace on the side of the club house enhances the 19th hole experience.
Very enjoyable. Flowed well. No issues in getting buggies for our 9am tee time but seemed to be a shortage at 1.45 as we finished. Helpful staff. Good bar/restaurant.
Lovely course with very attentive staff. quite wide fairways & well maintained. some of the facilities are slightly in need of refurbishment otherwise all ok
Nice course lot of trees!!
Hard to fault the condition of the course and the difficulty will vary for all groups. We have a lot of higher handicap players and we averaged 29 points.
Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed the course
Trees everywhere not sure if we will play it again think we like vilasol better
First time played and all the lads loved it Tough but fair
I have played Pinhal many times and the course is looking tired. Its a nice course but will be giving it a miss on our next trip, the pace of play was extremely slow taking us 2 hours to play 6 holes and the marshals did not attempt to move pace along, Sorry Pinhal
Found course very tricky with correct ball placement off the tee required on most holes. Greens slower than other courses. Enjoyed the test on offer. Found it fascinating that the course is played through the town. The only real negative was the amount of people on the course. It was packed with a 5 to 10 minute wait on every shot which meant a round of 5 hours. I saw 11 golfers on 1 tee. Surely this can be better time managed
Most enjoyable experience
2nd best to millennium,another tight course,a 5 iron is perfect to tee off most holes on this course greens and fairways brilliant,
course well looked after. in general the green fees were quite expensive. even vila sol was over the top on price, very good otherwise.
Slow had to start at 10th
Very nice course to play.
We didn’t have the best of starts. We were a group of 6 playing as two 3’s throughout our break, playing as teams as well as individuals. They insisted that two unknow players were to join us, making us two 4’s, thus abandoning our team competition. After a heated conversation we managed to get it resolved. Decent course, but really tight, some of the trees are ridiculously located. The greens were good and more receptive.
good value for money
Liked this course a little more than the others.
We have played this course three times and it is a good course regarding difficulty to finish on.
Enjoyable golfing experience even for a high handicaper like me. Tree lined fairways and doglegs. For the good golfer with drives that are true it would not be that difficult.
Another stunning golf course. Thoroughly enjoyed the round.
I enjoyed this course. I accept that there had been heavy rainfall the night before but there was a lot of standing water and the greens were all over the shop. one would be ridiculously fast then the next really slow. It was difficult to get a rhythm going.
lovely course but was paired with a couple who were extremely slow... I think handicaps should be paired up a bit better so play can flow better
Very nice course however the greens seemed tired. Nice to have a refreshment hut halfway round. Like the other courses stay out the water and you will always have a shot.
Course was in good condition even after heavy rain
buggys to dear
greens were in a very poor condition. really dissapointed
Enjoyed the course with a good variety of holes but was disappointed with the fairways as these were quite wet which lead to a lot of mud balls.
The buggie situation was a shambles, pack them and stack them situation with players. Will not go back again.
Great golf but disdappointed that our 3 T itimes for 10 people resulted in 2 add on players ...which kinda of ruined our usual game format
cannot pre-book buggies, therefore it's a gamble if you want to book whilst you are there, no buggies some players were walking and with a group of 16 player walking split the group up, therefore the course was very slow, as it's a long walk between green and tee, been here 3 years on the trot wouldn't return, service is poor and gone backwards, over crowded the course and staff don't care!
No problems with pace of play The grass on fairways did not seem secured to under surface
Expensive for the standard of the course
No shortage of pine trees on this one If you get out of position it’s a guaranteed dropped shot So you really need to plot your way round if you are going to score Other than that it was in great condition
Greens were good about average speed.fairways and tees were excellent.Enjoyed playing this course some very good holes. Still too expensive. Like the other courses buggies were very expensive
Don't play if you don't want a challenge. You will get blocked out by the trees but you can still make par...
Waiting to take shots due to slow play first round was frustrating,it improved the second round people seemed to struggle with the trees slowing things down. Some nice holes.
