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

Exceptionally good

Chris Shaw2018-06-29
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!

Nice links course and excellent training areas. Poor service. Cart price inadequately high.

Dan Holding2019-12-10
Lovely course and great facilities.

Steve Winskill2019-10-10
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 Ciccone2019-09-21
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.

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

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 Purssell2019-08-08
Lovely course. Shame it was foggy so we couldn't see the views but we enjoyed the day.

Dirk van West2019-07-31
Very nice course and very friendly staff. Played the course with very heavy wind so lost a couple of balls..

Thierry Courbois2019-07-26
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

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

Sylvia M. Schena2019-07-13
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!!

Cassard Michele2019-06-30
Wonderful golf with gorgeous views on the Ocean. Challenging but really interesting!

peter hills2019-06-01
This course is a little dull, definitely not worth the extortionate green fees.

chang chin ching2019-05-28
tough course and very unforgettable playing experience

Rami Sainio2019-05-09
Wheather was awful but everything else perfect!

Top Place, really on of the top 100

luigi tiralongo2019-04-30
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 Kirjavainen2019-04-11
Friendly and polite personnell. The course is fine, interesting and challenging. Driving range not so good, tokens cost toi much!

Ivo Senfeld2019-04-06
Everything was fine, I just expected little more ''wow'' after reading reviews

Reinhold Schmidt2019-03-30
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 Stougaard2019-03-29
Very nice golfcourse with fast Greens

John O'Neil2019-03-21
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 Oeveren2019-03-19
Nice course! The greens are great to. Nice views over the ocean. With a little seawind this becomes a difficult golfcourse.

Marek Nos2019-03-16
Spectacular course. Very windy. Greens and fairways nothing special in comparison to other courses. Good experience though.

Lau Tuxen2019-02-23
Very good course. Nice greetings by the staff. All-in-all a very good experience.

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

great condition, couldn't fault the course at all pleasure to play & would definitely return

Gilbert Wolter2018-10-21
Perfect golf expérience

Oliver White2018-10-08
little disappointed with course. not a true link links. better courses in area,troia,prai del rey

Michael Wendorf2018-09-13
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 Bonifazi2018-09-03
Great course. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed

Peter Wevers2018-08-16
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 Franck2018-07-16
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 Guillotel2018-07-12
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 !

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

Peter Harding2018-05-25
Great course in great condition. Buggy cost very high at 58 Euros

Sabina Yeo2018-05-21
Course layout and maintenance are OK. Signage for toilet is particularly bad. Information on course layout lacking.

HOUCKE HERVE2018-05-11
Beautiful course Negative points to report: exorbitant price (7euros) for manual trolleys in very bad condition. Électricité Cart 52 euros!

Vaclav Hruby2018-04-11
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 Nakhoda2017-12-06
Excellent golf course, well maintained fairways, greens that run true and fast and some spectacular views.

ZHANG Jianguo2017-11-30
Réception correct. Excellent course which worth the trip.

Wolfgang Quinten2017-11-16
Katie. It was Perfect. And that Young have read with the sun. I trank you very very much. Greetings Wolfgang

Mark Dwyer2017-09-05
Very well presented course with great facilities.

Ingo Bollow2017-06-29
Pleasant course, excellent service

Geoff Dyas2017-06-04
Pleasant welcome from staff. A little expensive.

Phil Johnson2017-05-29
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 Neill2017-05-11
Fantastic golf course very difficult but fair. Buggies €70 and no food available after round 6:30 pm.

Sten Clemen Andersen2017-03-20
Super course, but too expensive

Christopher Lingle2017-01-31
The course was harder than the slope/rating. The value isn't there.

margaret platt2016-11-08
What a wonderful golf course!! It is great shape.

Martin Chamberlain2016-08-10
Great course and great facilities

Highly rated links style course, some great views of the Atlantic.

Peter Chapman2016-06-06
Excellent course with good customer service. Only one small complaint would be the high cost of drinks in the bar/restaurant

Mark Richard Thomson2016-05-25
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 Rottinghaus2016-05-17
Excellent course. Friendly reception. Small minus: long waiting time for food & drink service on the terrase after the round.

Clas-Goran Pettersson2016-03-20
We rented trollies and they was very poor, the course was good

Heinz Hoffmann2016-03-11
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.

Shame the bar and restaurant were closed (not open till February)

Lynn Lantow2015-12-31
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.
