As this was our first visit to Portugal we have been very disappointed with the customer service at the golf courses (expect one) - I guess we are spoiled North Americans but I think for the amount of money we paid we should be welcomed, have our bags put onto a cart, have tees on the cart, given instructions on where to go, given directions to the driving range and putting greens, given balls to warm up. In our experience in Portugal this is not done so don't expect it.
Amenities: The driving range looked very good but we do not know if it was available for our use as it said for 'members only'. No one in the pro shop said anything about it to us. As with all of the pro shops we visited in Portugal they had fantastic clothing for sale - however unfortunately prices are dramatically higher than in North America.
Course: They have 3 nines. On the two we played the greens were in good shape, very undulating but a bit slow. However the fairways were very poor resulting in very inconsistent lies. Short courses that I think most players would find somewhat challenging.
If you usually walk, walk this course - it is a good walk and the prices for golf carts are extremely high plus the cart path on one of the nines we played were cobble stone - nice to look at but tough to ride. No GPS, no tees, no water, on the carts.
