Joachim Zeeb 2024-03-15
Interesting new golf course, needs some time, modern Clubhouse, practice facility need a short game area for training with groups. Rangeballs quality and quantity not worth.

Dagmar Staar 2024-02-19
Great course but Buggy a bit expensive (47.50)

Mr Ronald Lee 2023-11-05
Rain for the previous few days caused the course to be very wet. Buggies only allowed on paths. Good job we had a buggy as a very long walk from 1st green to 2nd tee! Round was very slow. Dining area in the clubhouse was lovely with great views. Excellent food choice and tasty.

andrew denton 2023-10-07
Extremely slow play. Course Marshall came round 3 times and failed to do anything about the large gap in front of the groups 4 ahead.

Susan Bayles 2023-10-03
Beautiful course, quite difficult a week after the Portuguese Open, fast greens and heavy rough. Ground staff very helpful. Course in good condition. Long hold ups, slow play

Stefan Reif 2023-10-01
Great course. However, the low availability of buggies is a bit of a shame, especially if you have such long ways between the holes (e.g. from 1 to 2!)

Peter Henschel 2023-07-10
Very nice and interesting golf course, well maintained and the greens are fantastic. A cart is recommended. The service in the clubhouse was ok. I would appreciate more informations from the reception and more interest from the side of teh caddie master. I boked a set of left handed golf clubs got it and realised at the driving range that the iron 8 was missing. I went back and aksed the caddie master and he just told me that someone lost it a week ago.

too wet fairways and grass too long

Grahame Michael Lamb 2022-12-29
Due to exceptional rainfall to hit the area over the last month the course was sodden. Not sure it should have been open for play. Thanks to the staff for working on Xmas day so that we could play.

Grahame Lamb 2022-11-01
We got rained off. Golf reception were great and agreed to change our tee time to another day

Laurence Roberts 2022-09-24
Great day of golf made a bit trickier by a string wind. Excellent course and facilities. Great staff.

Peter Schlebusch 2022-09-23
Great to play the course as set up for the Portugal Open. Magnificent condition !!

James Cliffe 2022-07-30
Nice course. Very, very slow. 4 hours so far and still have 3 holes to play. Course Marshall is useless

Ingrid van Loenhout 2022-06-23

Joachim Mahn 2022-06-21
Work in progress on the Greens in royal obidos. We Could Play twice the First Nine holes, But on Sanded Greens. For compensation we got a Buggy for free.Everything ok

Rob Emm 2022-06-16

Berthold Zurowski 2022-05-31
great golf course

Ben Walker 2022-05-30
Lovely thanks

Dave Bocarro 2022-04-18
Fantastic golf course

Martin Georg Hilke 2021-09-29
Putting greens very fast, „First cut“ on the courses currently too high.

Véronique Gantoy 2021-08-16
Parfait. À découvrir avant la fin du programme immobilier

Brian Saunders 2020-12-16
Absolutely brilliant,the weather was really wet,but getting better. The lads on the desk let us play a few holes and welcomed us back tomorrow to play our 18 holes. Enjoyed a good meal afterwards, can’t wait to play tomorrow. Thanks to all concerned,we will highly recommend.

Jacques Sleven 2020-03-23
Best Course after West Clifs.

Lars Hansen 2020-03-10
Driving range ball machine delivered half the issue. Fabulous distance and great use of water and obstacles to protect greens......which were very slow with sand treatment. Starter kindly started us off tee 10 to avoid a larger group in front scheduled on tee 1.

Mark Sugamori 2020-03-08
Good course. Played twice. First time started in the fog so missed some views. Can be a long walk from green to the next tee, especially from 1 to 2. Enjoyable.

Graham Ratcliffe 2020-01-28
1st class day , buggy paths a bit rough !

Hoang Hang 2019-11-07
Very satisfied

Todd Lindsay 2019-11-02
Lovely clubhouse. Good views. Challenging approach shots over water.

Neil Sutton 2019-10-18
Unfortunately the day we played there was a sea mist that hung around all day, so we could not fully appreciate Royal Obidos. As many morning tee times were cancelled, the caddy master did a great job of communicating with us and trying to organise adjusted times. The course (as far as we could see!) was fine with some very challenging holes and in good condition. Course was full and it was a 4.5 hour round

Philippe Frey 2019-10-17
Great course,very nice

Marjolaine Knight 2019-10-12
It is a very nice course, We appreciate very much!

Jens-P. Gunkel 2019-10-06
all best

Peter Ciccone 2019-09-20
Well worth playing if also visiting Praia de Rey and west links. Not quite as good as the other two but layout with water coming into play on many holes is challenging and fair . Plenty of risk reward decisions to be made. Greens were painfully slow during our visit. Allow 4. Hours 40 minimum for the round.

Michael Sutter 2019-09-19
Another beautiful day. Nice course with direct sea view. Extraordenary holes. Very good restaurant with friendly service.

Martin Zwemmer 2019-09-18
Nice lay out. Some difficult holes. Maintenance ok.

Jeffrey Pharoah 2019-09-18
Another good course

Michael Sutter 2019-09-15
Perfekt, friendly und great pleasure

Nigel Abbott 2019-08-22
Lovely maintained course. Staff very friendly. Overall lovely time had by everyone

Jean Paul Smets 2019-08-14
Great course. Excellent holes. Very nice staff.

Kenneth Bremner 2019-07-09
Course not in as good condition as the other 2 we played and one or two of the tees were poor.....good layout nonetheless. Setting lacks soul given the underdeveloped site....

Ashley Bissett 2019-07-05
This is a great golf course. Very difficult but a great experience.

Peter Chapman 2019-07-01
Good course layout but challenging in the wind. Course in very good condition with the greens being fast and true. Spectacular views from the clubhouse. Some long walks between green and tee so it was good to have buggies

Jon Atcherley 2019-07-01
One of the longest courses I have played, greens are lighting. Very nice set up and a great course but you need to be long of the tee. Nice clubhouse and Club sandwich the best in the area. :

stewart craig 2019-06-16
Disappointing due to slow play, we had to abandon the game after 9 holes in order to make sure we got to the airport on time.

Barry Donovan 2019-06-11
Great course design and location . Really tough back nine but fair

Chris Parr 2019-06-11
Great course and a really friendly welcome, I have been going here since it opened and has never disappointed.

Michael Knebel 2019-06-08
Nice course. Very crowded. Double Tee Times ( 1 and 10 ) in the morning. Staff / Greenkeepers drive in Front of you. Range Basket 5 Euros ..... Coffee and Food compared to 2017 disappointing ....stopped playing after 9 holes ....

Hans Juergen Roethig 2019-06-05
A difficult course, without course knowledge not easy. In good condition.

Ariejan mannen Tulen 2019-05-31
It was now the eighth time I played at Royal Obidos with friends and it is still a great Golfcourse. The course is beautiful. It was very busy, many guests from the hotel played with various handycaps, so the round was very long, 6 hours! Many building activities for the hotel make the stay in the hotel less pleasant!

Gillian Smith 2019-05-28
Lovely course but very slow round due to on course congestion even though we were told it wasn't busy.

John Reynolds 2019-05-22
Great Course staff very friendly and pace of play very good

Tim Newman 2019-05-15
Great bar and food service

Tom Lawlor 2019-05-03
Very good course, great variety in the holes. Challenging if you’re not a long hitter

Peter Madden 2019-04-30
Quite repetitive course with one or two good holes. Good conditioning but not very exciting. Friendly staff

Christoph Wey 2019-04-29
Great place. Any time again

Friedhelm Beckensträter 2019-04-21
Very good. Fantastic Golfcourse.

Andrew Burns 2019-04-04
Fabulous course

Torben Iversholt 2019-03-29
The atmosphere is a bit unpleasant. NOT like most Portuguese golf clubs. But the course is ok, especially the front nine is nice. After the game the bar was empty - so we skipped it too.

Billy Freeland 2019-03-28
Very good

Regine Peters 2019-03-16
Hallo, everything was ok, nearly nice. Thank you. Just at Praia del Rey there you booked us (2xpeters and 2xbuhk) at the same Time in different flight. From Tee 1 and Tee 10. - Long discussion for changing, but it works. Greatings Regine from Hamburg

Brian Wynne 2019-02-16
Very enjoyable course with very helpful and friendly staff . Will definitely return .

Simon Kaye 2018-12-27
Good Mosquitos a bit hungry!

Schrepfer Juergen 2018-12-09
Hard to walk. Not my favourite golfcourse.would have been better to leave nature as it was before. A lot of unfinished building around.

Richard Trist 2018-11-05
Friendly welcome and had everything I had asked for.

Mr Skilton 2018-10-25
As always, friendly & efficient.

john obyrne 2018-10-23
3 of us played Royal Obidos on Saturday - great course, friendly helpful staff and lovely lunch. Booked in advance thriugh Tee times - all worked great. Looking forward to returning ASAP!

Malachy Toner 2018-10-20
We enjoyed the course but would like to be advised that the greens had just being hollow toning and sanded. Plenty of channelling holes.

Jeannie Moye 2018-10-18
Another great day of golf

alan smith 2018-10-15
Great Course!! 5 and a half hour round not good. people on the course who clearly have no handicap. One person in group in front of us had played 8 shots and was still short of the fairway.

Knut Schroeder 2018-10-08
Difficult to get a Buggyat the day you have your teetime. They seem to be rare and you need to make reservations in advance.

Knut Schroeder 2018-10-08
Very nice and challaging course.

Michael Butler 2018-09-26
Nice course lack of any run on the fairways made it play long. A lot of blind shots. We hired one set of clubs that turned out to have lady flex shafts in, no offer of a refund was made.

Cerioli Nicolas 2018-09-17
Nice course really frogy but that life

Jose 2018-09-15
First time. Pleasant courteous staff. Good facilities. Great first holes. Enjoyed it. Fairways a bit too wet though

Ton Opdam 2018-09-04
Excellent course. Very nice staff. A pity it was very busy in the course so I had a slow round. But I enjoyed it very much.

Alan Thompson 2018-08-21
Get's better every time we play here. In great condition allowing for the tining and good value too. Slow play a minor issue

Gurvan Guillotel 2018-07-15
Superbe golf proche de l'océan dessiné par Severiano Ballesteros, ancien joueur professionnel de golf. Le tracé est vraiment intéressant, les trous sont souvent longs avec de nombreux plans d'eau sur l'ensemble du parcours. Le terrain dans l'ensemble est assez vallonné avec des fairways souvent larges. La présence du vent rend le jeu plus difficile lors des mises en jeu et des seconds coups. C'est un vrai parcours de championnat où la moindre erreur est punie par l'exigence que le tracé propose. L'entretien est excellent, les fairways et les greens sont très bien entretenus. Les départs sont également de qualité. Ces derniers offrent des vues impressionnantes sur l'ensemble du parcours. Cependant, il est dommage qu'aucun trou ne soient en bord de mer même si on aperçoit l'océan de loin. D'ailleurs, la terrasse du restaurant offre une vue magnifique sur le golf et l'océan. Le rapport qualité/prix est excellent à cette période où il n'y a pas grand monde sur le parcours. Pour un prix raisonnable, on peut jouer un golf de grande qualité signé par l'un des meilleurs golfeurs que ce sport ait connu.

jacques sleven 2018-06-24
Better condition than ever

Mr Dobbin 2018-06-13
An excellent course,good staff at all levels Whole day out a lot of fun so much better than Penha Longa on Monday Att to detail around course good Coffee shop to check in all very pleasant

Richard Dentith 2018-06-13
Great course and very enjoyable. Slight downer because the group in front was rather slow but overall excellent experience

Eric de Bruin 2018-06-11
Nice to play on a `Seve` golf course. Clubhouse has very good views.

Alex Bedford 2018-06-05
No drinks trolley

Mr A B Moss 2018-05-30
Generally too difficult for amateur golfers found it difficult to determine between the fairways and rough. Found the buggy an absolute necessity as there were long distances between greens and next tee.

Simon Kaye 2018-05-19
Good course Helpful and friendly Poor food

Malcolm Thomas 2018-05-18
Course was empty which is a worrying sign for the future - only 22 players scheduled to play!! Greens (on both the course and practice area) looked as bad as we have ever seen them but putted OK on the them.....they were so much slower than in all of our previous visits. Apart from greens, course was well presented and in good condition. Speed of play was good but no course ranger in sight.

Andy Goodwin 2018-05-12
Always in great condition and friendly welcome. Round was slow though - took over 5 hours as course was busy

H.Seubring-Vierveijzer 2018-05-11
Second time we played this course. Because of the wind the course is more difficult. Just like the other time and courses in the neighbourhood, you pay a lot of money if you haven’t luck with the players in front of you.. a marshall should regulate slow players... that will add value to all the players! That’s why this time I rate this course 6 instead of 8

Peter Heinecke 2018-05-08
Royal Obidos is beautiful course with fascinating sights

H.Seubring-Vierveijzer 2018-05-03
Very nice course, seems easy, but isn’t so easy, nice people at the reception

Derek Wickham 2018-04-29
great course in very good condition again . will return

Mr Matthew Cohen 2018-04-27
Very scenic and playable course. Lots of water hazards making risk reward decisions interesting. Wide fairways and large greens so not over penal if you are a bit off line. Fabulous clubhouse, good food offering at reasonable prices. Good range, except we were told we couldn't use it (without prior notice) as they were about to cut the outfield! Poor customer service in this regard.

Peter Matthews 2018-04-25
The course was much better this year as some of the scrubland had been cleared. It was challenging but fair and we really enjoyed playing it even the long par 5 second! We were well looked after and Jose on the reception gave us the name of an excellent restaurant for the evening which was a real bonus. The condition of the course was exceptional and it was a real pleasure to have played it.

Martin Suddards 2018-04-16
Very nice staff Great course, in excellent condition No water in the buggy's no pencil, no score cards The buggy's confined to the cart parts were a nuisance, but it was a bit wet in places, so fully understand. But it would have been nice to be told. A pull trolly, would have made more sense! Expensive drinks

rolof regouin 2018-04-09
just beautiful , we enjoyed ourselves very much there, great views, great open space...

Véronique Gantoy 2018-04-01
Golf très agréable à jouer.

Mia Adsersen 2018-03-23
Very good layout.

Mr Whiteley 2018-02-21
well received by the staff and the course was well maintained.

John Whiteley 2017-11-02
An excellent golf course, very challenging and buggy is highly recommended In good condition with good an helpful reception staff.

Jiri Hornik 2017-10-29
A very nice course, a couple of stunning viewpoints oriented both to the sea and to the mountains. Starting with hole 10 is a bit challenging as the second 9 holes are more difficult than the first 9.

Mickey Phillips 2017-10-29
Very difficult. You need a buggy but even our better golfers found the course hard.

Elizabeth Fiatarone 2017-10-22
Fantastic course. Check in staff very helpful and we changed to a later time. No marshal on course and round was quite slow. However still very enjoyable

Stuart Green 2017-10-19
Transferred our round here due to fog, opted for buggies after two previous times here, & a wise choice as so hilly and speed of round, as the fog descended at dusk. Course has matured significantly in the last two years. Good condition, definitely one to come back to again and again.

Padraic Delaney 2017-09-28
Royal Obidos was an excellent golf course, very enjoyable, challenging and exciting. I would highly recommend it to all golfers.

Cheryl Myles 2017-09-23
This is a challenging course, I am certain championship set up. But saying that it was in very good condition and the views were wonderful. But unless you are a very very long hitter, don't expect to play too near your handicap - just enjoy the ambiance.

Malcolm Thomas 2017-08-09
Great condition. We timed our game there perfectly as a few days later, they undertook their summer dressing of the greens which made them virtually unplayable. We would have been very disappointed if we had turned up to play and saw the greens covered in sand and full of tining holes. They were offering a 25% discount due to the summer maintenance work which we felt was Insufficient due to the impact of not being able to putt properly on the greens (for circa 2 weeks). In normal circumstances a most enjoyable course and we will return.

michiel de heer 2017-08-03
Beautiful course but many 4 balls and close to coast so quite some days with mist

ian sampson 2017-06-16
My favourite course. Great holes, great views, great service. Get a buggie it will help!!!

Lorna Winfield 2017-06-07
Excellent practice facilities to mean hitting off turf with new range balls. Course in excellent condition. Staff in the restaurant are very accommodating.

Geoff Dyas 2017-06-04
Pleasant welcome from staff. Good value.

Malcolm Thomas 2017-05-08
As wonderful as ever. Course in excellent condition.

YOUNG LEE 2017-04-17
We had a happy holiday in a wonderful golf course with a fantastic view .

Claudio Monaci 2017-03-07
Excellent course: although level of greenkeeping is a bit lower than Praia d'el Rey we have really enjoyed the experience. People from staff were extremely kind and the clubhouse is stunning: Royal obits is a great option to play in this area

Tapio Potila 2017-03-02
Clearly no 1 course on our trip. Everything was in top condition (e.g. fastest greens) and course challenges players at all levels. Beatiful views, difference between holes etc. Absolutely the best!

John Risholm 2017-03-01
Really a excellent golf course with all facilities you can wish. Outstanding, really a challange.

John Whiteley 2017-02-20
Great course looks lonely with just infrastructure and no houses but the shop staff and buggy staff always cheerful and considerate.

David Turnock 2017-02-17
Definitely a challenge.

Richard John Dentith 2016-10-19
Great course and great experience. Condition was very good (apart from a few tees) and the speed of play was acceptable. Special note of thanks to pro shop staff who were very helpful and friendly. Remembering my name the second time we played does make the customer feel good, and they managed to secure us a much needed buddy for the second round.

Paul Johnson 2016-09-19
This is a must play course if you are in Lisbon. Seve's magic is evident and the food and staff excellent for lunch and dinner. Beautiful setting and one to watch over the coming years as it matures. These were the best greens by far.

Guy Brothwood 2016-06-22
The golf course at Royal Obidos was superb. The greens were smooth and quick, the layout exciting and the customer service brilliant.

Mark Richard Thomson 2016-05-25
Very welcoming and friendly club which will played on two occasions being the course which was the nearest to our accommodation. It was in magnificent condition and of all the courses we played I think this was the one that anybody would want to play again if forming part of a golf tour, because there were a lot of interesting holes where a little more knowledge would help on the second visit.

Simon Kaye 2016-05-22
Loved it

Marcel Klemenz 2016-05-22
Some tough holes (some average ones also) and overall a nicely designed and maintained golf course. A bit negative are some long walks between green and next tee (1-2, 7-8). Helpful and friendly staff at reception and in the restaurant. Neverless I think Quinta do Vale is a better and more challenging design and easier to walk

Malcolm Thomas 2016-05-21
A great golf course and the greens were as slick as ever. Always in top condition.

Juha-Pekka Korttila 2016-05-21
LOL. Great championchip course with beautiful view. Service in clubhouse was excellent.

Peter Haywood 2016-05-09
great experience, excellent condition for a relatively new course. clubhouse relaxed and friendly

Tom Lawlor 2016-05-07
Tough course but very enjoyable. We will probably take a buggy if we go here in future.

Joachim Stark 2016-04-05
Nice new course in good condition

John Whiteley 2016-03-09
Need a buggy long walks trees to tees especially 1 to 2. Staff attentive and directed us to 10th tee to enable clear round not following novice 4 balla

Steve Wallace 2015-11-23
Again Another Great Course with some great views. You will not forget Hole 2 par 5.

Stephen Moore 2015-10-22
Good fun, but would have preferred to start on the 1st hole rather than the 10th.

Tim Newman 2015-10-20
Don't like teeing off on 10 but appreciate this may have been to avoid the large coach party who turned up as we checked in. Otherwise a great course in good condition. No electric trolleys so not sure whether they had all been pre-booked by the coach party or whether they no longer hired them but again see these as essential for the course. Love playing it though and will definitely be back

Clive Smith 2015-10-19
A world class golf course. As with Praia Del Rey above, we were disappointed to start from the 10th tee, particularly as the course seemed very quiet both days we were there. Great value for money; and a wonderful clubhouse.
