This course, winding through an immense pine wood, in which fig trees, oaks and almond trees also feature, is the work of the famous English architect Donald Steel.

  Vila Sol is a well maintained course that offers a challenge to the lower handicap player. A sign proudly displayed outside the club house shows the course was ranked 29th best course on the continent of Europe in 2005.
The front 9 are, according to the starter, the hardest opening 9 holes in the Algarve, it is indeed at times a very tight drive from the tee which does need accurate tee shots or you can be in trouble right from the start. The 6th hole is the signature hole, a par 5 which if driven too far off the tee will toy with water so be careful not to be too bold. The course offers some very picturesque holes and is a pleasure to play but a word of warning make sure you're prepared properly, I played the course after playing 2 others and 3 rounds in 3 days in 30 degrees tempratures, certainly does make you a bit tired by the time you hit the back 9. The only downside I have of the course is that there seems to be a lack of buggies which again adds to the fatigue factor, and the lack of on course refresments that other course in the are offer, never the less this is a course that is well worth a visit and comes highly recommended.

It is a typical inland golf course of the British school, posing a test of the golfer's strategic skills. Its narrow fairways demand accurate driving. The player also has to face several obstacles during the game - lakes and bunkers - as well as fast grass on the greens. A low overall score will be the fruit of early successes on the first four holes, reckoned to be the most difficult on the entire course.

The English architect of this course has carefully maintained the original topographical nature of this undulating terrain. Changes when necessary have been kept to a minimum to preserve the natural state of being.

The outward nine-holes are testing for a golfer starting with a par-4 of 381 metres. Next an even longer par-4 hole, then another par-4 of 385 metres. To follow the sixth and eighth holes, both par-5s, are awaiting the player with each a little under 500 metres. The back nine has two par-3 holes that are attractively designed. The par-5 on the fourteenth is particularly difficult to achieve with a tricky green awaiting the player.

Situated at the heart of one of the Algarve's most developed resort areas between Vilamoura and Quinta do Lago, Vila Sol is a picture postcard of Portuguese golf. Faro airport 10 kms.
