Vale Do Lobo Ocean Golf Course sits on the cliff edge, with stunning views of the Atlantic and jagged cliffs that are synonymous with this part of the Algarve. Golf here is a real treat and your experience here is bound to etch itself in memories that last a lifetime.
Designed by Sir Henry Cotton Vale Do Lobo Ocean consisted of 9 holes, and was opened alongside it’s sister and more popular course Vale Do Lobo Royal in 1968 and 1972. Both courses were extended in 1995 to what we have today, 2 spectacular 18 hole courses playing alongside a nature reserve and the Atlantic Ocean.
Vale Do Lobo Ocean is a Par 73 and plays 6198 yards off the yellow tees and 5580 off the reds. Men require a handicap of 28 and ladies 36 to play here.
The highlight on the Ocean Course is unsurprisingly, the ocean holes. These are 3-5-6-11-14-15. Prepare for breathtaking views as the course opens up and meanders down to the sea and beautiful sandy beaches.
Vale do Lobo Ocean’s signature hole is probably number 11. A blind tee shot, followed by a mid iron onto a green that’s practically on the beach is certainly one for the photo album.
The 15th Par 3 is also quite a spectacular hole in terms of aesthetics. It’s worth taking a minute here to soak up the view and marvel at your surroundings.
Whilst the links style ocean holes rightly steal the headlines, the more open holes that were added by American architect Rocky Roquemore in 2003 provide some welcome relief. They provide an opportunity to open up and give it some from the tee box without suffering too much punishment when you get it wrong.
With Pine and Eucalyptus trees lining the fairways, some truly memorable views and a few tricky holes to test even the momst avid golfer, Vale Do Lobo is an excellent stop on any Algarve golfing holiday.
