Lovely course. We walked but it was quite hot and there are a lot of uphill climbs. Fairways are fair, rough is dramatic and greens are unpredictable. Nice game overall and the beer in the clubhouse finished a great round of golf

Played here on the 10th May, course was presented very well and in good condition. Quite an interesting different course with very undulating fairways, an enjoyable game that took just over 4 hours. The gent behind the bar was involved in some sort of dispute...More

Played with three fiends who were on holiday. The staff in the golf shop were very welcoming as were those in the bar / restaurant. The course itself is a good holiday layout which allows the higher handicap player to enjoy their round. The main...More

Very slick here. Don't recognise the slow play thing as course was rammed every day we played it and we were 4 1/2 hours dead on every time. Par 5's are all great, with some challenging 3's and 4's where you have to watch where...More

Staff here much more friendly than old Gramacho Golf Course starter. Pinta course official took the time to chat and ask where we were from & explain the course and some of it's features. The course was a real eye-opener with fairways that were better...More

A nice clubhouse with good facilities. The greens were in excellent condition and very fast. The course was very busy but the pace was reasonable - about 4.5 hours which is fairly standard at peak times.

I was a member of the fifteen strong group at Pinta, taking two and a half hours to play five holes, with eight buggies backing up on the tee. I have played several courses in Portugal, mostly around Vilamoura. I have also played quite a...More
