Royal Golf Course


The most famous course at Vale do Lobo is amongst the best 100 golf courses in Europe, with some truly unforgettable holes, such as the famous sixteenth hole.

The Royal Golf Course is much more difficult than the neighbouring Ocean Course. The terrain is even more undulating, there are more water hazards and sand traps and its holes are generally longer. Although the original design was by Sir Henry Cotton, Rocky Roquemore´s distinctive trademarks are clearly visible all round the course.

The Royal Course is also one of the world´s most frequently photographed courses, because of its famous hole 16, a par 3 requiring a shot of 218 metres over three spectacular cliffs to reach the green. Mention should also be made of hole 9, a par 3 with a lake in front of its green. Water is also a distinct obstacle at holes 6, 16 and 17.

With two courses and a golf academy, the sophisticated Vale do Lobo resort is one of the most beautiful tourist areas in the Iberian Peninsula, equipped with a full set of infrastructures that provide an ideal complement to its beautiful beaches.
