Jeroen review

This was the first golf course we played of 8 courses in 5 days. We only played the Alvor loop, which - based on multiple reviews and the caddymaster - is the best of the three, although all loops offer something different. De welcome at the hotel was great and the views are magnificent. The hotel only has 20 rooms, so it is often fully booked. In my opinion the hotel is absolutely recommended! The clubhouse is less impressive and the views from the terrace of the clubhouse are less than the hotel. I can imagine the clubhouse will be replaced once the golfers flock in to bring it more in line with the hotel. Then one quick remark about the golf academy. When we visited, it was not used but this is definitely the golf academy with the best views ever! The driving range (from the golf academy side) is great with a lot of targets, bunkers, pin positions. Really good. Then the course itself. The Alvor loop is technical and plays long. No real easy holes. Quite some uphill and downhill holes which makes this a pleasure to play. Also great views across the sea and to the village of Alvor. I can only say that I really liked the course and will certainly be back to play the other loops (Lagos and Praia). Greens were good. We had a friendly and good starter, which in my opinion is quite important. He gave some nice tips. All in all, a great start of our golf road trip ;-).
