Vila Sol

Vila Sol Golf is set within a beautiful valley of lakes and lush vegetation. It features 27-holes comprising of three nine-hole courses, the Prime, Challenge and Prestige.

The Prime loop is the most difficult of Vila Sol Golf. The long and narrow fairways of the first four holes are renowned as “the most difficult start” on the Algarve.

The Challenge loop is better known as the back nine of Vila Sol. The challenge of this loop is that its greens are more hilly than either Prime or Prestige, demanding accurate approach play.

The Prestige loop is a shorter loop, but narrower. Accuracy and not length is by far the deciding factor on this nine.

Vila Sol was designed by Donald Steel, an English architect who above all likes to preserve nature and native vegetation, minimising earthmoving where possible.

The resort twice played host to the Portuguese Open in the 1990s and regularly hosts other professional events.
