Impossible to play all the courses, only 9 holes, to slow players !!!
Fairways a bit patchy but otherwise in good condition. Pace of play on Front 9 was incredibly slow (~2h45). It seems they had people start on 10 earlier and didn‘t manage the gap properly (i.e. no marshall on course) Back 9 pace was ok because a couple of fights in front of us finished their round on 9.
Teetime was changed to 20 minutes later without any notice. We were on time at TEE nr 1 , 5 min after our teetime caddymaster told us that we needed to start at hole 10, no one told us that. We reserved 3 buggies, we had to wait to pick them up 10 min before departure. Then the caddymaster told us to get keys at reception. Not the relaxed manner to start your 18 holes. Terrible . Course it self was as usual very good.
Compared to the other courses we played the course looked a bit shabby
Très beau parcours accessible au golfeur d'un niveau moyen. -**- Very nice course accessible to the golfer of an average level.
Course was very busy. Golf reception and buggies gave good service, the starter didn’t!! The course itself looked a little scruffy and short of maintenance. The whole experience was average and did not compare well with West Cliffs. See next review……
We were paired up with a couple who were only playing 9 holes. Then ended up behind a four ball who would not let us through. 4.5 hour round was too long

We had two sets of very slow four balls in front of us, and no marshals in sight to hurry them up (they spent ages looking for balls they should have stopped looking for after a minute or so). At one point we had four sets of players on one hole! It meant a very slow 18 holes for me and my playing partner, and it was difficult to get into a rhythm, constantly waiting for people to make headway in front of us. We had a buggy and the particularly slow four ball directly in front of us did not, which didn't help. However, on a positive note, the course is fantastic with stunning scenery and the food/drinks before and after was good! Thoroughly enjoyed playing, despite having to wait frequently.
5.5 hour round at PDR after same at West Cliffs yesterday. The golf course administration need to take responsibility.

Course was extremely wet
Nice views - very fast Greens.
Course was in poorer condition than last year with the greens all subject to heavy use of sand although I do appreciate that due to COVID reducing the player count last year it is more than likely that much use which has ensued this year has led to much wear and tear
Perfect, no complaints really. The tee boxes were quite poor and the fairways a bit patchy but otherwise very good
Fantastic Hotel and Golf Course
Great course with lovely views.
Lovely course on a lovely day. Not too challenging and paired up with a nice Swiss couple.
Alfonso Palacios Muñoz
Campo en buenas condiciones a pesar de días lluviosos. Greenes en perfecto estado. Vistas espectaculares en los hoyos cercanos al mar, y muy bonitos los tipo parkland.
The checking in and trolley process was flawless. But the course itself was poor. Tees were very uneven, fairways had many bare areas , greens were slow and so many unrepaired pitch marks.
Lovely course, especially the front 9
campo precioso y no muy dificil
Beautiful course, very nice infrastructure, easy course that will be appreciated by good and more amateur players
Super fairways and challenging greens
Beautiful course with inland and seaside holes. Good value for money.
mérite le détour tous les niveaux de jeu pourront s'y faire plaisir
Always love playing here as it has great mix of holes on the coast and tree lined
Well looked after both on and off the course
Overall a good experience. Course in very good share overall. Some bunkers a bit different than the others and in mediocre shape. Greens excellent, fast and true. The layout is quite varying, which is nice. First 9 are parkland/forest, second 9 close to the sea. Three holes right next to the sea shore but not the "wow" -effect described in ads, pretty nice though. Some mix up with the starter, someone had left earlier leaving me alone but then he drove to stop them and wait at next tee.
Beautiful course especially the holes along the coast … and not too tough for the average golfer
Course was a little scruffy around tees etc compared to past visits.
As always begautiful and challencing. Staaf not to friendly. With a group of 4 in gailing winds it took us 4 hours en 45 minutes. We were urged to play faster in a very rude way.
Continues to be a great course design and with excellent maintenance......many more golfers walking which allows for a more relaxed tempo of play.
Perhaps our favourite course in the area. The ocean views on the back 9 are awesome. Our 2nd year in a row playing. We tried their golf boards for a different experience.
Excellent as always
1st class day as usual.
A lovely course in great condition. Surprisingly not a links course despite being amongst sand dunes. A fair course and good challenge for players of all capabilities.
Back 9 was wonderful, front 9 was good but wasn’t the same type of experience as the back.
Hi, We had a very good experience using Tee Times. Everything went without any problems and we will definitely be booking again for next year
Excellent, varied course.
Wonderful welcome from the golf course receptionist
Lovely day at Praia D‘EL REY.
A good days golf on a great course, in good condition. Great views and the variety of holes is always a pleasure. Ate in the restaurant as we were late finishing - food was fine but a bit too much ''upselling'' by the waiter and not concentrating on the basics of service. Course was full so it was a 4.5 hour round.
Ein absolut toller Platz in top Pflegezustand. Eine Mischung zwischen Parkland und Linksplatz.
Great on everything matters !
Great course, but certainly not in the best condition at the moment. I've played here lots of times before and it's been much better in the past. We were very disappointed they didn't have any golf boards for hire, we have hired these from there in the past and they definitely help with the pace of play. We were stuck behind two fourballs , and the round took over 5 hours so not ideal. But still a great course in a brilliant location.
It was very fogy all day, so we didn’t see very much the lay out and the sea but the golf condition was very good! Hope we’ll come back again!
A good holiday fun course - average condition suitable for all handicaps - we enjoyed
Excellent greens and challenging layout . Some long walks green to next tee so buggy suggested. Be prepared for 4 and a half hour round
Great lay out. Very well maintained. Great food in clubhouse.
Phenomenal course, a must play course.
Jean Paul Smets
De first nine holes are ok. De second nine holes are astonishing. Beautiful and even with strong wind from the ocean fair to play. Sometimes there are to much golfers on the course. We played as a four ball almost 5 hours, while driving buggy's !
The service is very friendly and attentive.
Un campo extraordinario.
Welcome as good as ever. Played the back 9 (holes 10 - 18) first and was excellent. including pace of play. Slow second 9 (holes 1- 9), waiting to play most shots on holes 2 to 9 inclusive. Greens on holes 1- 9 were covered in sand post maintenance. Fully appreciate this work needs to be undertaken, just frustrating in terms of timing.
A great mix of holes with a tight front nine opening up to some great links holes on the back 9...very playable even off 62 tees.....first hole perhaps the weakest....
Great golf course. Back 9 in particular is stunning. Excellent value and the restaurant in the club house is very good as well.
As impressive as ever. Great job Celine!!
I have played the course previously but my playing partners had not - we all enjoyed the course. The condition of the course was very good as were the staff in the pro shop and restaurant.
Some wonderful holes against the sea. Not a fan of these types of courses around houses and hotels but this course is very well looked after and a good gold experience. Nice clubhouse.
Excellent course - great natural design and superb location
Had a fantastic day at Praia, course was in great condition and staff were friendly and happy to help.
Great holiday Great réservations Beautiful hôtel Lovely people
As always, the course is a joy to play. Tough but fair. An ideal holiday course. Not as tough as West Cliffs. Some of the tees need some work but otherwise in great nick. Superb views
Hallo , für mich persönlich ist es der beste Golf Platz in Praia D’el Rey , ist zwar der älteste aber es macht immer wieder Spaß den zu spielen, Platz Zustand ist Top !!
Hans Juergen Roethig
A very nice golf course , not easy but well playable. Would always play it again!
First Day . All is very good
Beautiful course but very windy on the day which made it very difficult.
Excellent t service as usual experience ony spilt by veterans open day in front of us leading to a 4hr 45 round but we were warned
Slow to play
Fantastic as always plus pace of play so much better with the GPS
Went on an overcast day with rain, drizzle and some dry moments. A beautiful course in any weather. Manicured.
Super course in great condition. Spectacular views.
Excellent experience as earlier
Great course, friendly staff
great welcome from all the staff, course condition good
Fabulous golf course!
Brilliant course. Superb views. Great staff very helpful
Always a great resort, now with 3 great courses
Nice.course with different challenges from hole to hole. Greens can be difficult to read.
Mr Mike Hetherington
Golf course presented in great condition as ever. While I appreciate it was high season, play too slow. We did not see a course ranger to take care of this issue.
Terrific from start to finish!
Excellent course with very nice panoramic views. Front 9 mostly parkland, back 9 along the atlantic coast. Friendly staff at the reception and on the Course, the guys in the restaurant couldn't handle the crowd during busy times. We got to start from Tee 10 and struggled to get into the game at Tee 1. So, for the Course absolutely 10, for the restaurant not more than 4.
Mr William Thompson
Excellent condition but too busy
Very beautifull course with stunning vieuws and quick greens were the lines are difficult to discover. Had a great day! Also the apartment is all can ask and helpfull staff
Excellent as usual , if a bit expensive !
Great Course and In fantastic condition.
Great course. Friendly staff
Staff not always very friendly !
Everything was perfect, as usually
Great,very good service,very nice people
M W Abbott
Very helpful reception and everything was as we booked. Really enjoyed the course.
Always a great course to play. Course condition was vg. Clubhouse as always was to the high std expected.
Course is being neglected a bit as owners concentrate on Westcliffs
Nice course. Friendle office staff.
Nice course but first 7 not to excitong holes. Very slow close to 5 hours
M W Abbott
Were aware of our booking and the reception desk was very helpful
Excellent - greens slightly below par - bumpy
Beautiful golf course, always a pleasure to play here.
Magnifique parcours situé dans un complexe hôtelier et proche de l'Océan Atlantique. Le parcours est très intéressant, varié avec deux parties bien différentes avec des trous souvent boisés sur les 9 premiers trous. Le retour est peut être un peu plus facile même si certains départs sont compliqués car ces trous sont en bord de mer. Le vent est forcément présent sur cette partie du parcours. D'ailleurs, le golf offre des vues impressionnantes sur l'océan à de nombreuses reprises. Le parcours est relativement difficile par moment, un index minimum est donc exigé pour jouer ce golf. Le parcours est très bien entretenu avec des départs, des fairways et des greens qui sont à la limite de la perfection. Le club-house est lui aussi agréable et très moderne. A cette période (Juillet), c'est la moyenne-saison au Portugal, le rapport/qualité-prix est donc excellent car le golf est somptueux. Ce golf fait partie de mes favoris et est souvent cité dans les classements de parcours de golf comme étant un des meilleurs du Portugal et d'Europe. Je vous conseille donc de le jouer, vous garderez un merveilleux souvenir.
Beautiful as ever
Very attractive course but wind can make it very challenging. Very good condition both fairways and greens. Some difficult carries off tees.
Favorite course in the area and in really good condition. Great fun playing there and quiet as well
Eric de Bruin
Especially the seaside holes are great ! Very good golf experience overall.
4 rounds golf. Excellent golf experience.
Claude H Lalonde
The couse and the greens we’re excellent.
Nice nature, but extremely slow play and slow greens.
Fantastic course, playable also in the wind.
Lovely course. Great views and very enjoyable golf.
Excelent course. Magnificent views. If you have hard wind it will challence You.
We played here after Royal Obidos and West Cliffs, and it is nowhere near as much of a challenge as those courses. That said, after the opening 5-6 holes (which are quite dull), it turns into a nice trek, with a series of holes along the edge of the ocean. Clubhouse is more expensive than others and food pretty average
Great experience as always
A great experience
Nice course, not very difficult. Danger when you walk to the 17th.. people at the 14th hit the ball in your face. There should be a warning!
Great course, fantastic views!
nice course in lovely setting and well maintained
Mr Matthew Cohen
Very good course with some lovely scenic holes by the ocean. The course is slighly spoilt by some tees being extremely small and hemmed in by boundary fences and netting. Excellent range. Expensive yet average clubhouse food.
The course was in excellent condition and we thoroughly enjoyed our round especially the challenging beachside holes! The inland 9 were a little easier. Registration was hassle free.
Fantastic course, challenging but doable for high handicappers . Thoroughly enjoyable.
a bit disappointing....too many buidings....too american.......not enough open and not very spacious, ...I wont advise this one to others
All day rain, no fun at all. Buggy personnel unfriendly, no towel for drying seats provided. No driving range information and possibility provided.
Expérience très satisfaisante
A great service, I particularly like the seamless transition from booking to playing your round. No vouchers or emailing necessary!
Very nice golfcourse in good conditions. Difficult in stormy weather. Spectacular views. We will defenately play it again. :-)
Helpful efficient and friendly
An excellent golf course which flows in a traditional way. Buggey not necessary. staff excellent both on reception and Marshall.
Fantastic golf course in accordance with description and recommendations made by Jorge. Parabens!
Good course but issues with slow play.
Very good experience, both with Tee times and the golf course.
Superb all round ! A fair test with a spectacular back nine. Great condition and service
The course was in excellent condition. Weather was beautiful but very windy. Excellent experience thanks
As usual , first class .
Bernt Ole Ørum-Petersen
Everything was ourstanding
Love this course, so disappointed fog prevented us from playing. Reception very matter of fact about not getting on the course, TT had been notified about an hour before.
Some lovely views, but lacks in comparison to Royal Obidos and West Cliffs
Thoroughly enjoyed the course, which contained holes that were fair to my handicap of 24, had a lot of character and were very tidy. The clubhouse served good quality food with very friendly staff.
We absolutely loved this course. The fairways and greens were in fabulous order with stunning views. It was fairly accessible and straight forward to play, but plenty of tees to choose from if you wanted more of a challenge. The staff in the golf shop and restaurant were fabulous, so much so we played golf on other courses and went back there for drinks and to eat.
Mr. Grant Prior
Greens in poor condition and course a bit unloved
Greens as quick I have seen for a number of years. Always a great experience. Bar menu has improved and nearly back to what it was some years back. Course seemed rather quiet but we were not complaining!!
michiel de heer
Beautiful course but fairways very soft so plays very long. In the afternoon more quiet
Great course with a mix of links and parkland. Only negative was the slow play which caused a major bottle. Neck at the first hole on the two tee start system .
Course in fabulous condition, accommodating staff at reception. Practice facilities however leave a lot to be desired. Mats are old & raised at the ends with no tee-pegs & practice putting green excessively sanded & not representative of the greens on the course. Old & damaged range balls not worth €5.
one of the most beautifull golf courses that we played
As wonderful as ever. Course in excellent condition. The menu in the clubhouse bar appears to have gone down hill since Marriott took over the running of the club. The menu and value for money is nowhere near as good and we have now stopped eating there. A great pity........
We had a happy holiday in a wonderful golf course with a fantastic view . maybe golf course is the best in west portugal.
The course is beautiful and greenkeeping excellent. All the people from the staff are very kind and the overall experience is great. One of the best courses I've ever played, i'll be back! the only suggestion I'd make is to open caddie master reception a bit earlier to avoid players to rush to the tee.
Always a nice course although quite short (specially Par5's and Par 3's). Some wet spots on fairways but altogether ok course,
Always in great condition and the staff are welcoming from the shop through the marshals.
Too expensive, great course though.
Always the best.
Great course in 1st class condition the views are spectacular. Staff in the golf shop and club house are excellent.
Very good course and a fair test for all abilities. Also very understanding staff as we was unable to play one day due to my brother being ill.
Praia Del Rey is a true gem! You get great oceanside holes on the back 9, and parkland type holes on the front 9. There is a variety of holes. The course was in great shape, and played true. This was a definite value for your money, and I would play here again!
Wonderful golf course and great views
Great course and the restaurant team were exceptionally attentive and informative. we had a lovely dinner after golf with some fine wines, recommended by our waiter. Old money club, showing a touch of class throughout. Greens were just above average condition.
Excellent golf course, challenging to Play but very very nice, both the land scape as well as the course itself.
Course lovely as always - tee time organisation chaotic will 2 balls and 4 balls all teeing off the same tee - why can't they sort it like other courses??
Course needs some attention - the greens were very slow and often bobbly.
Sat 11th booking was excellent. Round as a 3-ball starting at 1st in just over 4 hours. Enjoyed the course Monday 13th booking - course very busy. Started at 10th. Around in 5 1/2 hours and we could not go any faster. Starter introduced a 4th person to join us. Nice chap, but he was a 30 handicapper who played badly. Much of our time was spent searching for his golf balls and even then he must have lost a dozen - and he was very loose. Have to confess this spoiled our experience somewhat.
Good golf course in a fantastic location. Holes 12-17 especially offer outstanding views, and the tree-lined holes further inland aren't bad either!
Mark Richard Thomson
Again very welcoming club which is obviously very established. The course was in magnificent condition with a great location on the coast. Overall this was regarded as the favourite course of the group.
Even with a lot more houses around the fairways still a good golf course. Helpful staff and good atmosphere at reception and restaurant
Golf course as great as usual. The lunch menu is still not as good as it used to be and is on the expensive side
Good mixture of links and park. Very good indeed.
great golf course, friendly staff, excellent condition
The group really enjoyed this course. It would be nice to start on first tee but it wasn't a big issue.
great link nice to play and score, excellent value
It's always close to a 5 hour round at PdR. It's a lovely course but the constant waiting year after year is starting to make us look at other courses.
Praia is our favourite and staff also very helpful managing perfectly an incident we had.
Excellent drainage,established traditional course very easy to walk. Staff always attentive usually aware of slow play.
Great Course with a great variation of views . A must for any golf tour in the Lisbon Area.
value for the money
Sound golf course, what you would expect from Marriott.
Play very slow, looks like overbooking. Nothing worse than playing the first 9 holes to find they let more people in front of you who are starting at the 10th.
Very enjoyable despite the rain on the first two days.
Always a pleasure and for once we had a decent paced round although we were off first at 8am. Clubhouse food a bit pricey but I guess you are paying for the overall experience. Great facilities and course in good condition, especially the greens.
Always a favourite of ours. Interesting to note that a second course is now under construction, which will add to the appeal of the resort. Disappointed to start from 10th tee.
