Now this is what you call a good quality course. Having come from golf in Dubai it is hard to find places that impress, but Quinta South certainly did. From the welcome, the pro shop, the Tee Boxwa and manicured fairways and dare I say bunkers... the place is immaculate- even the buggies were great with soft moulded leather seats... More

Lovely beach here but access is a bit of a walk over quite a long bridge but worth the effort. Apart from the beach, hotels and golf courses they do have a shopping centre with some smart shops and restaurents. We come to Vilamoura every year and tend to visit this area every two to three years. The beach is... More

Sadly priced based on its past glories. Not worth the green fees now demanded. Course was untidy in various areas and quite wet and muddy in some others - not sure why as Portugal summer was hit and dry

Our first visit to the south course and although the standard and quality of the course was ok the whole experience was very average As always we discussed with the starter playing golf at a decent pace but they break the rules by teeing groups off too soon and introducing 4 balls walking groups at the 10th and causing excessive...

For a course that clearly gets a lot of use throughout the year the green staff do a good job. But, inevitably, due I suspect to the failure of golfers to repair pitch marks the greens are variable. Parts of the course could have been better. Starters are very good and friendly. It is a very good course but i... More

One of the most enjoyable days golf I've had anywhere from the golf buggy which had the most comfortable seat of any golf buggy I've been in to the bar/restaurant area. The buggy's themselves are equipped with GPS and self police to stop you from driving into certain areas or from careering down a hill at breakneck speed. Staff at... More

First time playing this course, but had heard excellent reviews from everyone that I have spoken to. A group of 13 golfers, we arrived early for some lunch, which was nice, sitting on the terrace in the sunshine overlooking the 1st hole. Attentive staff and the football was on the TV as well, in case the conversation ran dry! We... More

A quality golf course where you only see the hole you are playing and it can appear that you are the only people on the course. A great course, buggies are required and Re expensive. 50 euros per buggy when we were there.

Lovely day out with our group. On arrival helpful staff unloaded our clubs and organised our buggies. Course was in very good condition and a joy to play. Had a very pleasant drink and snack on the terrace after or round. Always a pleasure to play here.
