The immaculate Pine Cliffs Golf Course lies perched 200 feet above the golden sands and blue water of the Atlantic Ocean. The location of the resort is unique. It extends across 168 acres of naturally beautiful land set above a stunning cliff top, beneath lies an expanse of golden sand beach and the deep blue water of the Atlantic Ocean. The dark red of the sandstone cliffs contrasts sharply with the immaculate green of the golf course above and the sparkling blue ocean below.

This is one of the country’s most original golf courses, built in a pinewood setting, with tree lined fairways running parallel along the Atlantic Ocean, giving it's guests breathtaking views along the Algarvian coastline. Architect Martin Hawtree’s main concern was to keep the natural surroundings as it was before the course was built.

The jewel of this perfectly kept course is the Par 3 sixth hole. The championship tee, known as the Devil’s Parlour, is built over a ravine that requires a 197 metre carrying shot over the cliffs to a deep but narrow green.

It’s hard to rate this one. A nice course with some spectacular views but as a course it is just OK. Full to bursting because it only has 9 holes means possible long rounds and that coupled with the hotel being frequented by training groups, I’m not sure that I would play here as a regular visitor. Condition is fine but reflects the heavy use. The range and practice facilities need some more love.
