A classic you shouldn't miss

The designer Frank Pennink wanted to create a golf course in Portugal that would remind players of the beautiful and challenging inland British courses. The Old Course Vilamoura has a parkland style layout and is often described as the "Grande Dame" of the Algarve golf courses. Renowned worldwide, the Old Course opened in 1969 and was completely renovated and modernised in 1997, while retaining the original layout. 

Why you will love it

The exceptional fairways of the Old Course Vilamoura run along pine trees - the main hazard - and over gently undulating natural terrain, adding an extra challenge to the game. The Old Course Vilamoura is a very attractive course with a great variety of holes, perfectly maintained due to a sophisticated new irrigation system and well-trained staff.

Environmentally friendly

At the Old Course, environmental protection practices are very important. The team follows strict regulations established by ISO 14001 standards, as well as the standards of the Green Globe and Committed to Green programmes. 

NEW: The Vilamoura golf shuttle service now goes to Pestana Vila Sol hotel and golf course. Free golf transfer from the hotel to Dom Pedro Vilamoura courses (PinhalMillenniumLagunaOld Course and Victoria). Contact us for extra greenfee prices on these courses.
