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.

Tees were also good, with the normal signs of high…

Vale do Lobo
The whole resort is perfectly suited for a couple of days of golf vacation. There is shuttle transfers from the accommodation to the course and the overall service is very professional and kind.
