Quinta do Vale Golf
Seve Desing! Un campo tipico diseño de Seve. 6 pares 3,4,5. Primera vuelta con mucha influencia del agua, en un valle a orillas del rio Guadiana. Segunda vuelta más al interior picando un poco hacia arriba algunos hoyos. Buen mantenimiento se nota la mano del nuevo grupo.

This doesn't mean it is easy to make par you still need to br…

Vale do Lobo
Vale do Lobo Royal is both a test to your strait game and tactical game. The course is not very long, but due to the straightness of the fairways, makes you think about every shot. Maintenance wise it was in perfect conditions. Clubhouse is top notch and a must visit after a round. The famous par 3 by the ravine is a tough one, specially with wind against.
