The Vale do Lobo is the largest resort of its kind in Portugal, and offers everything that you could want from your golf holiday. The owners have sought to create a residential and holiday community, rather than simply a holiday destination. This is the resort for those who are searching for the golf “lifestyle” whilst they are away.
The Vale do Lobo’s own courses were re-developed by American course architect Rocky Roquemore, and has twice played host to the Portuguese Open. The Royal is well-known for dramatically sweeping along the cliff tops, whereas the Ocean course runs more gently along next to the beach. The courses offer a wonderful combination of links golf and parkland golf which can be enjoyed by almost any golfer, whatever their preferences.
