Famous for the Par-three 16th hole over cliffs, Vale do Lobo Royal course has many other attributes and is a pleasant layout indeed. The many pine, olive and orange trees come into play on several holes and there are also a number of lakes to avoid. Originally designed by Sir Henry Cotton and updated a few years ago by Rocky Roquemore.  The Ocean course is a great complement to the resort and makes for a superb play and stay destination.  Excellent winter packages with free buggies and club hire available.  Easy walking. Seven miles east of Vilamoura.
