This was the second golf course built in Vilamoura and inaugurated in 1976, having originally been designed by Frank Pennink, the architect of the nearby Dom Pedro Old Course.
Several refinements were incorporated over the years, the most significant one by Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1985. The course is typified by rolling parkland terrain covered with numerous umbrella and Atlantic pines that line many of the fairways and a few even stand out on fairways or near greens.
Ponds and a stream come into play on five holes but are not serious threats to above-average golfers. To keep up with modern technical advances in clubs and balls, several holes have recently been lengthened and the par 72 course now measures 6353m off the white tee markers.
The clubhouse was completely renovated and modernised at the turn of the millennium and from the large veranda one can enjoy a panoramic view over the excellent driving range and practice facilities.

"Very nice layout, a classic golf course. Tight fairways and many holes where you really need to think about your club selection. Course in good condition except the greens, which were really slow." - Immu

"Played this last year, and this year, after giving it a miss for many years due to poor state of course under Oceanico. Marked improvement from previous years, as now under Dom Pedro. Low handicappers may find it not that challenging, but a good and fair test for mid to high handicappers. 10th hole is really nice, hitting blind over the hill, down to the green. Food, drinks and service very good and reasonable." - Mike T

"This course seems to have improved significantly since we played it in 2017. Tees, greens and fairways all in great condition. It is a real test of golf, with many of the par 4s and 5s unreachable in regulation. This did not inhibit our enjoyment of the course in any way. The cart paths need some work, but it can be walked with an electric trolley." - Clive
