Decent holiday round

My Dad and I played this course while staying in one of the villas lining the second fairway.
We managed to get a twilight rate which was good as I'm not sure the course would be worth the full price (although golf on the Algarve seems more expensive than the UK).
The course was in OK condition, October is probably nearing the end of their season so with that in mind the course held up well. It's not an overly difficult track but still an enjoyable round when on holiday and playing with rental clubs.
The big disappointment was that the lay out of the course has been altered to remove "Sir Henry's Challenge". The original hole was a 600+ metre par 5 which I fancied having a bash at in 2 but it is now a short par 3 with a green dumped in the middle of the fairway and then a shorter par 5. This also means another nicer looking par 3 has been left out of the routing. Bit of a shame.
Pace of play was great after we had been let through by the group ahead of us. Part of the twilight rate was play as many as you can before dark and I managed to play an extra 4 holes and probably could have played more if I hadn't wanted to get back for a dip in the pool at the villa!

Fun course in Algarve

A pleasant day of golf, excellent course for first round of the vacation. Good conditions, not too hard but fast ondulated greens make for a good challenge. Beware of downhill putts you may need a wedge to get back on. Nice traps. Clubs up on every approach to the green.
