Very poor. Painfully slow and no course marshalls to assist. Players showed zero etiquette to allow play through. Course itself, whilst in good condition, is pretty ordinary with no outstanding or challenging holes. I would not return and recommend taking this off the package offered for the Algarve. It was a waste of money.
Reasons to Visit Dom Pedro Pinhal Golf Course
Designed by Frank Pennink with updates from Robert Trent Jones
Established in 1976 making it the 2nd Oldest Course in Vilamoura
20 minutes from Faro Airport and 5 minutes from Vilamoura Marina
The Pinhal Course, flowing over the hills of Vilamoura, is the second-oldest course in the Vilamoura resort, and like the Old Course was designed by the esteemed Frank Pennink. Since its inception in 1976, the Pinhal has been improved, most notably by Robert Trent Jones in 1985, and remains one of the top courses in Portugal today.
Found by the popular coastal town of Vilamoura in the heart of the Algarve, the Dom Pedro Pinhal is ideally situated for groups of golfers who are looking for a fun round before hitting the town. Pinhal has long been a favourite among returning golfers, as one of best courses in the Algarve it is a worthy addition to any golf break.
