Check out the latest Vale do Lobo Golf Club Stay & Play Tournaments
Featuring 2 first class championship golf courses – Vale do Lobo Ocean and Vale do Lobo Royal – in addition to a wide range of accommodation options at the Vale do Lobo Villas and Apartments, this venue is truly one of the lading golf resorts in Europe.
Vale do Lobo Ocean Golf Course is one of the oldest in the Algarve and a world-renowned venue for your golf holiday in Portugal. With a tight section cutting through some of the most spectacular golf villas in the Algarve and a section down by the sea right next to the Atlantic, you’ll never forget your Algarve golf experience.
The Ocean Golf Course features undulating fairways which run alongside a nature reserve, before leading gently down to the shores of the Atlantic
The front nine are located on a slightly hilly land which characterises Vale do Lobo, surrounded by pine trees with sea view from several holes.
It’s emblematic holes are two challenging and spectacular Par 4s, to the 11th and the 14th – which treat golfers to some of the most spectacular views in the Algarve.
The Ocean course is composed of two of the original 9-hole golf courses designed by Sir Henry Cotton, which were opened in 1968 and 1972. His plans for the merged course became reality in 1995 after his death.
“The Royal and the Ocean are 2 great courses. On the Royal, you have to hit the ball straight – you’re going to be in trouble if you don’t. The Ocean is different, it forces you to shape more shots and I really enjoy that.” António Sobrinho, 11 times Portuguese National Champion.
