Interesting Information About Vale Do Lobo Ocean Golf Course

The stunningly picturesque Vale do Lobo golf complex is home to two fantastic courses – the Ocean Golf Course and Royal Golf Course. Designed by Sir Henry Cotton, the legendary golfer, and architect, and restructured and renovated by Rocky Roquemore, these courses complement each other very well.

  • Whether you prefer the links or parkland, the Vale do Lobo Ocean has a layout that can satisfy everyone. The section that’s next to the Atlantic is made up of holes with links characteristics and away from the crystalline waters are parkland holes with the fairways winding through the estate.

  • The initial half of the course is set on a hilly terrain engulfed by pine trees. Golfers can enjoy the gorgeous scenery of the Atlantic from some of its holes. The second half of the Vale do Lobo Ocean Course has many holes that run close to the ocean. Without a doubt, hole-11 will stay in your memory for a long time. The sights of the surrounding areas from this hole will stun the players.

  • Initially, Sir Henry Cotton designed two courses of 9 holes each. The first course was opened to the public in 1968. The second was opened four years later, in 1972. It was only in 1995 that both 9-hole courses were merged to create the Vale do Lobo Ocean.

  • The Vale do Lobo Ocean Golf Course guarantees three things to the players: golfer-friendly layout, refreshing Atlantic breeze, and breathtaking views.

  • The Vale do Lobo Ocean has seen its fair share of hole-in-ones. Many players have managed to get their names into the Hall of Fame at the golf course. Just last year seven players have managed to do it. The hole that features most often in the list of 2015 is the 13th, followed by the 7th.

  • The course has many unforgettable holes; the two that stands etched in the memory of the golfers are the 11th and the 14th – both are par-4s with fantastic landscape scenes. The most memorable seaside hole of the course is the 15th, which is a par-3 that runs along the coast.

  • It’s not often that you see guests wanting to spend equal time on and off the course. The reason is obvious; the Vale do Lobo Ocean Course has wonderful clubhouse and golf facilities.
