Course was in good condition, some challenging holes but a couple of basic ones. Very nice mix of tree lined front nine and beach/links back nine. 4 hours 40 for a normal round. Clubhouse more expensive than others in the area but very good views over the 10th hole.

I'd recommend buggies, unless you're feeling particularly energetic! The tee areas are quite small and well used; the greens have plenty of unrepaired pitchmarks; and you need to allow for... More

Reservations at first as they didn't have enough buggies at the start, but this got resolved as the groups tee'd off. A number of the holes, that have the Atlantic with the waves crashing onto the shoreline are... More

A wondeful place to relax, enjoy the beach. No crowds and confusion. Near Caldas da Rainha, a small town but very friendly. In an area of excellent restaurants and mild climate

Have played twice in the last 3 days and plan to play again on Thursday. Looking forward to it very much. Breeze from the sea makes the holes on the coast interesting and the few holes in the pine trees makes the course varied and interesting. Not a walk in the park and need to position some tee shots -... More
