Why Vale Do Lobo Ocean Golf Course Has Become So Popular

Widely considered as one of the prime golf courses in Portugal, the Ocean golf course, part of the Vale do Lobo beach and golf resort is much in demand, especially during the summer season. Golfers fly in from all over the world to have relaxing golfing holiday playing here as well as its sister, the Royal golf course.

But why has Vale do Lobo and specifically the Ocean golf course become so popular?

The course itself

Designed by famed golfing architect Sir Henry Cotton and set alongside a nature reserve, the Ocean course is filled with spectacular vistas along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. On the front nine, you will be able to view the ocean from a number of holes, especially at higher points as the course is constructed in a fairly hilly area. Many of the fairways are protected by an array of pine trees.

On the back nine, the views of the Atlantic are just incredible. Many holes in fact, are right on the beach, so expected to hear the waves lapping on the sand and the call of the gulls in the air as you chase your own birdie. The view on the 11th is simply spectacular and will take your breath away. You may even find it difficult to concentrate on your golf game when playing the course for the first time. Don’t worry, you will love it so much you will definitely not only play one round.


The facilities at the Vale do Lobo golfing resort are second to none and a perfect place for golfers to bring their family along on their holiday. Situated only 25 minutes from Faro International Airport, you can be sitting in one of the many forms of accommodation, unpacked and enjoying a cocktail within an hour of landing in the country. Of course, many of the activities are centered on golf, so over and above the two courses, there are excellent practice facilities for driving and putting as well as a pro shop. You can also get a few golf lessons to improve your game should you so wish.

For your family however, other facilities include tennis courts (14 of them), a spa, gym, supermarket, nightclub, and fifteen other restaurants and bars. The nearby beach is the place where sun worshippers will spend most of their days, but rest assured, Vale do Lobo has something for everyone.
