The Old Course (ex.Vilamoura l) was inaugurated in 1969. Its project as Frank Pennink´s first one in Portugal, and we can understand why he was invited to design and project other courses in our country.
This is a golf course that winds its way through umbrella pine woods in a most natural way. It is the English school of course design. The beginning of the round is apparently easy and inviting, with an easy par 4 - for those who keep the ball on the fairway - the green of which can be reached with a good drive.
Of the par 3´s we would highlight the 4th played over a small lake, and the 15th, with a green, which is difficult to reach. However, the "flavour" of The Old-Course is undoubtedly the back nine par-5 holes - four in all of which the l6th is the best.
