    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 slightly hilly land which characterises Vale do Lobo Algarve, surrounded by pine trees with sea view from several holes. The back nine in particular are characterised by spectacular ocean views, with some holes almost stretching down to the beach. On reaching the brow of the hill on the 11th, players come suddenly upon a sight fit to take the most concentrated golfer’s breath away. The fairway runs directly down towards the beach and, for the next few holes, incredible views and Atlantic breezes are guaranteed to make a player’s round exhilarating.

    Played the Ocean course Friday 20/07/18 and having previously played the Royal course I knew the quality of maintenance would of the same high standard. My tee time was 07.15 so i decided to walk and carry again but same advice as outlined above i. e if playing in the summer with a tee time after 11am then hire a buggy as it will make the round a lot more enjoyable. The opening hole par 4 eases you into the round with a downhill tee shot and wide enough fairway(For the Ocean and Royal courses my advice would be to buy a stroke saver €5 per course as there is great advice for each hole). The first 7 holes allow for tee shots to be slightly off line as there is good room, if going for the par5 3rd hole in two then make sure you can carry the water as there is no room for error. For me The ocean course really gets going from holes 8 to 18 with 9th hole being a stunning par4, a 4 or 5 iron will do off the tee leaving a 2nd up hill shot to a green that slopes back towards you with a lovely mini waterfalls on you left! On the back 9 Ocean views come into play and on a blue sky day with clear blue sea in front of you then i reckon your in golf heaven! The par3 15th runs along the beach line but don't get lost in the views because this is not an easy par3 by any means!

    If you haven't played Vale do Lobo my advice is to put it on the must play list and to play both courses there don't pick because they are both excellent. Loved it there and check out my instagram marksheehan07 for more photos and videos of the courses.
