Par 73 / 5,458 metres. The hilly fairways of the Ocean golf course stretch along a nature reserve bordering the Atlantic coast. The course's signature holes are two demanding par 4s - the 11th and the 14th - and the par 3 15th, which runs parallel to the beach. One can honestly say that no other course on the Algarve offers "more sea" because as of the 11th hole the golfer's constant companions are the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The Ocean golf course really consists of two 9-hole courses originally designed by Sir Henry Cotton and opened in 1968 and 1972 respectively. Cotton's plan to combine the two into an 18-hole course was only realised in 1995, after his death.
Par / 5,640 metres. This course is simply a must for those travelling to the Algarve on a golfing holiday. Vale do Lobo is home to two demanding golf courses, which have in the past twice played host to the Portugal Open. Based on original concepts by the legendary late Sir Henry Cotton and redeveloped by the respected American golf course architect Rocky Roquemore, the Royal and the Ocean courses present a challenge to golfers in a way that only very few courses can. Both lead the golfer along fairways lined with umbrella pines and fig trees, which stretch along the coastline of the Atlantic. The Royal is perched high upon the cliffs and the Ocean rolls out gently beside the sandy beaches. This combination of differing terrains provides immense enjoyment for golfers of all abilities. Hole 16 of the Vale do Lobo Royal course is one of the most photographed golf holes in the world, with its tee position high upon the cliffs overlooking the ocean!
