Gold course was good. We did not utilise the bar or restaurant but facilities were good

Cliff Morgan 2022-05-05
Really good course, tight front nine, then opens up a little back nine. Condition in May 22 was excellent and the fastest greens we played.

Michael Faulkner 2022-04-09
Another day, another round of golf. First time here, and truly impressive, not sure I like Ronaldo's new house being built in front of the clubhouse, if you can call it a house, more like a hotel???? I play of nine and started the course off the whites, but after coming up short(ISH) on a few par fours, I went to the yellow's, a much better experience. You must stay on the fairways as the rough is pretty tricky to get out of, a mix of sand and shrubs. The fairways were in pretty good condition, and the greens were (good) tough, and quite slick. There are some truly memorable holes with views, and I would recommend it if you are in the area

Allan Ross-Jones 2022-03-18
Played a 2 ball at 09.00 and made it round in under 4 hours with other golfers in front. Staff were really helpful in re booking us for the early tee time, and resulted in a great day.

Allan Ross-Jones 2022-03-15
Course in great condition with fast true greens with helpful staff. We played a 2 ball, but got held up by an unofficial competition of 4 balls with the round taking 5 hours.

Chad Millington 2022-03-10
Tough course off the back tees plus wind can pay havoc. Nice course but a bit scruffy in places due to building work going on.

Joeri Van Bogaert 2022-02-25
Excellent links golf course with great ocean views. The course design is unique and we will come back to play this course.

I went very excited, to be playing 2nd(?) best course in Portugal and 56th(?) in the world, and left disappointed because it wasn't in all aspects. On the positive side was the condition - this is winter, it had rained, and the fairways were magnificent, the greens great and really slick if you were down grain! The view is great. The wind was up which I really enjoy (driver, 4 wood and 4 iron to par five, a couple of 350 yard drives in the other direction!), the course was tight in places. I got a great deal from teetimes who fitted me in despite course being fairly busy. The bunkers were works of art and fantastically maintained. It's easy to walk round. The negative - a number of the holes around the centre of the course run side by side, albeit not consecutively, but it's difficult to avoid other fairways on certain holes! You could throw a blanket over about 8 holes here, pretty much, and I got the feeling a couple of the holes were shoe horned in. Some of the run off areas were fairly scruffy but it's winter. I tried to play a little like a links course but it isn't a links so the ball held up but catch some slopes and the ball disappears off the other side! In summary world class fairways and greens but not layout.

Greg Reynolds 2021-11-16
What a lovely golf course would definitely come back and play again.

Olivier Volper 2021-11-02
Lovely place for golf, excellent shop and restaurant.

Vincent Van Diest 2021-10-04
Beautiful course Nice fairways Top views Negatif: Bar was closed

Damien De Smet 2021-09-27
Très beau parcours. Avec des fairways et rough très bien entretenus. Le prix du buggy est sur fait.

Marcel Minderhout 2021-09-27
Very nice course. Perfect. Only a pity that restaurant/bar was closed due to private party. They did not tell upfront. And the 19th hole was our final destination for the long weekend with our own ceremony awards etc. We had to move this to our accomodation. So course a 8.

Andrew Molloy 2021-09-17
Course is very nice. Staff not as pleasant and helpful as others we experienced for years in Portugal.

Nigel Wood 2021-01-26
Golf Buggys are too expensive. Course is affected by high winds

Paavo Stromberg 2020-03-16
Nice course. Plenty of room on some holes for "wide drives". Wind can make the game interesting. Quality of greens varied a bit, maybe due to the early season. Definitely will go again. Beautiful views.

Peter Stott 2020-03-01
Lovely course, condition of fairways greens and tees excellent, you can putt from the fairways, like carpets. Lovely views

Paul Henri Remarque 2020-02-11
Very nice course in perfect condition! People are very kind. The bar is a little expensive though. Was a great day

Dan Holding 2019-12-10
Lovely course and great facilities.

Hermiencreger 2019-11-04
A must play. Extraordinary course outlay with plenty of challenges. Fairways and greens are in excellent condition and the ball runs true on the putting surface. Plenty of fluffy sand traps (dunes) strategically situated. Will play it again

Steve Winskill 2019-10-10
We played 5 courses in the Cascais region and this was planned to be our signature course. It was more than double the price of others we played but unfortunately it was a massive let down. Whoever rated this course as being one of the top courses in Portugal was way off the mark. The condition was moderate at best, the cart paths were very poor and the layout was terrible - several holes together in a big open field. Save your money and play Belas, Estoril or Penha Longa Championship course - it will cost you half the money and you will have a much more pleasuresble pleasurable experience.

Peter Ciccone 2019-09-21
In my opinion a very average course ,and certainly far from the best in Portugal. Unbelievably the bar and restaurant was closed when we finished our round at 5.30! Certainly not value for money.

Morgan Pierse 2019-08-20
I just finished my round in Oitavos Dunes and it was quite an enjoyable experience. Nice design and friendly staff. However, there was a lot of GUR/areas that were out of play due to maintenance. There were more than 6 tee boxes where there were no tees laid out. Usually when there is this level of work on a course, the staff will inform you in advance and there will be a reduced green fee. This was not the case today which was a surprising and disappointing.

erik 2019-08-18
Greens slow, maintenance average, driving range poor, why charge for driving range? Should be prepared and inclusive at these rates

Rajinder 2019-08-11
Golf course is nice and well laid out. Some of the holes are very interesting as well as challenging. The course is also reasonably in good repair. But very poor signage around the golf course. At places we were struggling to find the next tee.

Richard Purssell 2019-08-08
Lovely course. Shame it was foggy so we couldn't see the views but we enjoyed the day.

Dirk van West 2019-07-31
Very nice course and very friendly staff. Played the course with very heavy wind so lost a couple of balls..

Sonsoles Fernandez Ludena 2019-07-29
Not good, the golf course Oitavos was under maintenance, greens in bad conditions and no body informed about that. I would have gone to another golf course if I knew that!!

Thierry Courbois 2019-07-26
Nice golf course with good maintenance Small disappointment as no water is provided at the start nor on the course tees For a quite hot country it should be better

Poulain 2019-07-23
Fantastique parcours avec des points de vue magnifiques sur l’océan. En revanche il faudrait indiquer lors de la réservation que les Greens sont carottés !!!! Cela enlève beaucoup de plaisir et rends le Green Fee très cher

Thomas Schmidt 2019-07-13
Unfortunately quite some course maintenance works going on at the moment which does not justify a greenfee of Euro 95 - this on top of sanded greens - all in all course layout challenging and still a gem / why are there cigarette stubs all over the place - I have no problems with people smoking but please discard your stubs in the trash container.

Sivert Espeli 2019-07-13
80% of the greens coverd in sand. Not ok for full green fee. The Course is great. Shame with the sand on so many greens

Sylvia M. Schena 2019-07-13
Due to maintenance the course was in very bad condition. Several greens completely sandy, blocked by greenkeepers and their carts/lorries. They didn't move or stopped working at all. We had to play over the carts and around the greenkeepers. One green didn't even have a flag at all. The signs are miserable or not existing at all, the toilets couldn't be found either (3 toilets?? But problably blocked by the maintenance cars). No water to clean the balls. No reduction for the green fee, but 58euros for a buggy, no bottle of water included. We definitely will not come back!!

Michael Johnson 2019-07-10
One issue on a lovely golf course - the cost of a buggy at €58 is excessive and a rip off

Cassard Michele 2019-06-30
Wonderful golf with gorgeous views on the Ocean. Challenging but really interesting!

peter hills 2019-06-01
This course is a little dull, definitely not worth the extortionate green fees.

chang chin ching 2019-05-28
tough course and very unforgettable playing experience

Rami Sainio 2019-05-09
Wheather was awful but everything else perfect!

Ellersiek 2019-05-02
Top Place, really on of the top 100

luigi tiralongo 2019-04-30
Cas mpo en excelentes condiciones. Pero no justifica el precio excesivo por el mismo. Como la casa Club que es un bar con baños.. no está a la altura del precio que piden por jugar

Mikko Kirjavainen 2019-04-11
Friendly and polite personnell. The course is fine, interesting and challenging. Driving range not so good, tokens cost toi much!

Ivo Senfeld 2019-04-06
Everything was fine, I just expected little more ''wow'' after reading reviews

Reinhold Schmidt 2019-03-30
I spent a great afternoon at this course. The personnel is very polite. I finished early and they let me wait at the bar even though the office was closed already. I even got a coke zero for free. The faciltity is great as are the people!

Soren Stougaard 2019-03-29
Very nice golfcourse with fast Greens

John O'Neil 2019-03-21
The club was very quiet, facilities are very basic for the price. We had to purchase a course guide in addition. For the cost there was too much sand on the greens

Jaap van Oeveren 2019-03-19
Nice course! The greens are great to. Nice views over the ocean. With a little seawind this becomes a difficult golfcourse.

Marek Nos 2019-03-16
Spectacular course. Very windy. Greens and fairways nothing special in comparison to other courses. Good experience though.

Lau Tuxen 2019-02-23
Very good course. Nice greetings by the staff. All-in-all a very good experience.

Henschel 2019-02-03
Very nice course with interesting holes. Tricky greens. Service of the staff is very good, but trolleys are in bad condition.

Jonathan Beard 2018-10-26

We played this course with great pleasure , the course is well maintained , the speed f play was perfect and the par 5 holes a great challenge , the entire golfing holiday was a success to be repeated ..

Antony Gunn 2018-10-22
great condition, couldn't fault the course at all pleasure to play & would definitely return

Gilbert Wolter 2018-10-21
Perfect golf expérience

Oliver White 2018-10-08
little disappointed with course. not a true link links. better courses in area,troia,prai del rey

David Chin-Shong 2018-09-17
Exceptionally good

Michael Wendorf 2018-09-13
Beautiful course. Loved playing it. Service was good. But when I arrived, I was told there were many golfers and no buggies were available. The gentleman I was playing with and I are both in our 60's, and had to walk the course. When we were done, there were golf carts sitting unused. Very frustrating. I would not have played the course if I knew I had to walk.

Andreas Bonifazi 2018-09-03
Great course. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed

Peter Wevers 2018-08-16
Very nice course. Greens a little bit slow. Very windy. Compared to Praia del rei and West cliffs to expensive fors the moment.

Nigel Murphy 2018-08-08
Good course

Nigel Murphy 2018-08-03
Good course. Friendly staff. Good service. No downside

Feuilloley Franck 2018-07-16
Golf realisé le 12/07/18 : bon accueil - fairways brulé par le soleil - greens carottés peu de jours avant, du coup très déçu (le site pourrait l’annoncer) - GF, jeton de practice, chariot et buggy très cher pour ce type de parcours - très belle vue sur l’atlantique

Gurvan Guillotel 2018-07-12
Très beau parcours de type links situé dans une station balnéaire (Cascais). Le tracé est intéressant, très difficile quand le vent se lève. J'ai trouvé le retour plus facile que l'aller. Sur certains trous, on aperçoit l'océan avec des départs très surélevés. Le parcours se situe principalement autour de complexes immobiliers (ex: villas, hôtels de luxe). La particularité du parcours est qu'il n'y a peu ou très peu de roughs, il faut obligatoirement être sur le fairway car votre balle peut être mal placée dans les zones dites plus "sauvages". Concernant l'entretien, je trouve que les fairways sont parfois secs à certains endroits du parcours. Les greens venaient d'être sablés donc très lents. Je m'attendais à mieux sachant que le parcours est classé dans les meilleurs golfs du monde d'après un journal de golf britannique !

Chris Shaw 2018-06-29
This received the most applause in part because the winds all week were very strong and we did not think were would be able to play! However the course this time was sheltered so we had a great last game. Greens were medium fast and true. Fairways like walking on a mattress, very easy on the knees. Club house looked and felt very empty - literally only a couple of staff manning the club so not very inviting to stay after the round. So we didn't! Second time I have played and enjoyed the experience but still struggle to understand some of the planning permissions given for properties on the course which do not seem in keeping!

Mark Thomson 2018-06-23
A slightly better welcome then the rest and course was good if not a bit too difficult given the windy cconditions

Guido Goerges 2018-06-21
Nice links course and excellent training areas. Poor service. Cart price inadequately high.

Peter Harding 2018-05-25
Great course in great condition. Buggy cost very high at 58 Euros

Sabina Yeo 2018-05-21
Course layout and maintenance are OK. Signage for toilet is particularly bad. Information on course layout lacking.

HOUCKE HERVE 2018-05-11
Beautiful course Negative points to report: exorbitant price (7euros) for manual trolleys in very bad condition. Électricité Cart 52 euros!

Marie-Joëlle DUFOUR 2018-04-29

Vaclav Hruby 2018-04-11
Very nice golf course, unfortunatelly very, very windy, so on some holes it was very difficult to hit fairway pro greens. Fairways in very good conditions, greens too.

Hosein Nakhoda 2017-12-06
Excellent golf course, well maintained fairways, greens that run true and fast and some spectacular views.

ZHANG Jianguo 2017-11-30
Réception correct. Excellent course which worth the trip.

Wolfgang Quinten 2017-11-16
Katie. It was Perfect. And that Young have read with the sun. I trank you very very much. Greetings Wolfgang

Mark Dwyer 2017-09-05
Very well presented course with great facilities.

Ingo Bollow 2017-06-29
Pleasant course, excellent service

Geoff Dyas 2017-06-04
Pleasant welcome from staff. A little expensive.

Phil Johnson 2017-05-29
Terrific golf course, helpful staff who moved our tee forward to earlier that morning so that we could play as a 2 ball and not be held up several groups of 3 and 4 balls due to play before us.

Diarmuid O Neill 2017-05-11
Fantastic golf course very difficult but fair. Buggies €70 and no food available after round 6:30 pm.

Sten Clemen Andersen 2017-03-20
Super course, but too expensive

Christopher Lingle 2017-01-31
The course was harder than the slope/rating. The value isn't there.

margaret platt 2016-11-08
What a wonderful golf course!! It is great shape.

Martin Chamberlain 2016-08-10
Great course and great facilities

Cecil 2016-06-19
Highly rated links style course, some great views of the Atlantic.

Peter Chapman 2016-06-06
Excellent course with good customer service. Only one small complaint would be the high cost of drinks in the bar/restaurant

Mark Richard Thomson 2016-05-25
Very welcoming club, and again a great golf course with fantastic facilities. I felt they went a little further to make you welcome by providing a complimentary golf shoe bag. These little things make a difference, and again the course was in great condition, and in a great location on the coast.

Claus Rottinghaus 2016-05-17
Excellent course. Friendly reception. Small minus: long waiting time for food & drink service on the terrase after the round.

Clas-Goran Pettersson 2016-03-20
We rented trollies and they was very poor, the course was good

Heinz Hoffmann 2016-03-11
Great Links course, condition was great ealy in the year. Perfect greens. Only downside was the clubhouse, couldn't even get a drink after our golf.

Paul 2016-02-02
Shame the bar and restaurant were closed (not open till February)

Lynn Lantow 2015-12-31
golf course was outstanding and very difficult. Kitchen service very slow and wait staff were not alert to slow kitchen and were slow delivering drinks but staff was polite. Eventually, entire meal and drinks were provided at no charge due to these issues.
