I played this course with a few friends towards the end of September. The weather was glorious but not too hot due to the significant wind that swept across this high and sometimes exposed venue. This made the golf quite challenging but enjoyable nonetheless. Hiring a buggy is strongly recommended. We hired clubs (choice of Callaway or Wilson Staff) along... More

I play off 13 and found the course quite challenging, it's not long but the winds make it play longer. Fair price of €80 for green fee, club hire and buggy. Wilson clubs are newer, Callaways are from about 2000. It can be slow as they do now allow pretty much anyone on it!!

Now called San Antonio Resort. Cool Atlantic breezes keep you cool and fresh even on the hottest days. They also blow away any flies! On resort there is a Spa for pedicures, massages and beauty treatments. The golf course is interesting and challenging. It has great views from its hills.Buggies for hire but we prefer to carry and play 9... More

Lovely course and what I expected from the Algarve. Really enjoyed it. A bit of water but OK. Housing well away from course so course not boxed in. Not sure about buggies v carrying. Its a long way, including between tees, but by carrying you can optimise the land contours rather than up and down to buggies. I would love... More

Just back from a relaxing break at the beautiful, safe and friendly Parque da Floresta Golf Resort (now known as Santo Antonio). It's really worth visiting the Bowling Club and Cafe opposite the Driving Range. You don't have to play bowls to go to the cafe, which is one of the best places on the resort for light refreshments. Morning... More

What a disappointment - we have eaten in the Golf Club Restaurant previously and enjoyed the food, not this time. We all four ordered steaks (not expensive admittedly) mine was supposed to be Portuguese style, normally served with potatoes and a sauce - this time the sauce appeared to be straight out of a packet (lumps included) and all the...
