Beside Quarteira, next to Vilamoura, this championship course was designed by Donald Steel. Considered by many to be the toughest course and have the best greens on the Algarve. Very attractive and challenging, carved out through a pine wood, with some fig, almond and oak trees also. Strategic water and sloping fairways means you must pay attention. Tough starting holes. 6th , good hole along the road and 7th., par 3, across the water. Very difficult 14th par 5 with a lake just before the green. Two excellent par 3s - 13th & 15th. The 18th, up to the clubhouse, is guarded by a tree on the left of the fairway so an accurate shot to right of centre is required.
Vila Sol has hosted the Portugese Open twice.
Nice friendly clubhouse.
