Golf Courses at Pestana Vila Sol Golf & Resort

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.

STATS

Designed by: Donald Steel

Opened for play: 1991

Par: Par 36

TEES

Yellow tees: 3152 metres (3447 yards), Par 36, SSS 36

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.

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.

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.

Vila Sol (Pestana Vila Sol Hotel)

Very disappointed with a few aspects of the course:- - No buggies available on Sat 11th, although people from a wedding party were driving a number of these around the course, & limited number available on 12th. - At the half-way point, the hut was very limited in what it had to offer, no sandwiches or ciders. - The buggy selling drinks was not in operation on either days, & we were told there was a staff shortage. Considering the weather it would have been helpful to get some drinks during the back 9 especially. - The kitchen closed at 6pm. Considering there was still at least 10-20 groups still out on the course, this again was very disappointing that we couldn’t get food after this time.

Vila Sol Course (Pestana Gramacho Residences)

This is a very busy golf course with 27 holes but exceptionally well organised, we did not have to wait at the 10 where we started or have any difficulty cutting in on the 19th. A difficult challenge with water and trees in abundance. Slick greens that required great care on both the approach and putting out. Thoroughly enjoyable.
