The condition and presentation is arguably the best on the Algarve. The greens are always excellent, although some may argue that the green complexes are over-challenging for the average golfer. The design is interesting and fair without being spectacular as a course. Plenty of subtle elevation changes and some good holes but not sure that it warrants its very high rack rate green fee price.
The North course is a good resort golf course! You won't lose many balls but the greens are very tricky! I was very impressed by the quality of the maintenance! Despite the bad weather...the course was in perfect shape and the greens were very fast!
