Vale do Lobo boasts two top class golf courses The Ocean Course and The Royal Course both taking players through umbrella pine and fig tree-lined fairways to the Atlantic, the Royal playing dramatically along the cliff’s edge. Both courses provide an enjoyable game for golfers of all different standards.
As suggested by its name the Ocean golf course is located with sandy fairways running along the nature reserve before leading gently down to the shores of the Atlantic. The Ocean Course at Vale Do Lobo is situated right on the very edge of the coast line and offers some of the most stunning views in European golf.
Players are required to follow the regulations with regard to the dress code. It is essential that golfers wear golf shoes with soft spikes, as well as collared shirts and golf trousers or tailored shorts.
