The five courses at Vilamoura are world renowned for providing quality golf in environmentally friendly surroundings. Darren Clarke described the courses as ´ five jewels in the one crown.´ The courses have recently been acquired by Oceanico group and within the next year there are two more golf courses due to open, The Faldo Course and The O´Connor Course, which should firmly establish Vilamoura as Europe´s premier golfing destination.
The Laguna and The Millennium Course both share the same clubhouse and there are 2 chipping greens, 3 putting greens and a large driving range for a bit of pre-match practice.
The Millenium Course was designed by English architect, Martin Hawtree, and opened in May 2000. The Millenium Course has two distinct faces -5 of the holes on the front nine are set in beautiful parkland, distinctly similar to the Old Course and many of the others are in more open territory, open to the wind and some strategically placed water features.
Both of the courses offer the golfer with a challenging, fun round and in the future, once the thousands of trees that have been planted are fully grown and proper investments are made into course maintenance, both the Millenium and Laguna will equal the quality of The Old Course and Victoria. However, at the moment the quality is reflected in the price.
