About this course

Location: Algarve
Yards: 7200
Par: 72
Slope: 139

If you are considering the Algarve for a golfing holiday and want to play as many different courses as possible, you should seriously look at the other five Vilamoura championship courses. They have one of the most impressive portfolios in Europe and one of their top courses is Victoria.

Victoria Clube de Golfe, to give the course its full title, opened for play in 2004 following a multi-million-pound investment. It was the fifth course to be added to the Vilamoura portfolio and designed by the great Arnold Palmer. A good indication of the quality of Victoria is the fact it successfully hosted the 2005 WGC World Cup, an event which saw victory for the Welsh team of Stephen Dodd and Bradley Dredge. Not only that but in 2007, the inaugural Portugal Masters tournament was contested on the Victoria course and has returned annually ever since. In 2016, it was a three-time major winner, Pádraig Harrington, who took the title.

Course

The Victoria course is a par-72 course playing to just over 7,200 yards from the back tees. Don’t worry if the length of the course seems a little daunting, there are up to five tees to choose from on each hole, so every player in your group will feel comfortable during their round.

You can be assured the course will be in great condition, whatever time of year you decide to play. The fairways and greens are very well maintained, with the latter often very fast, so be prepared when making putts. In fact, how you perform on the greens can make or break your round, as not only are they fast but they are large and undulating. Hit the wrong part of the green with your approach shot and you will be battling to save par, even if you land under regulation. The first green will give you a good idea of what to expect for the remainder of the round.

The rough either side of the fairways can very tricky to escape from and is extremely thick in places, making accuracy off the tee a vital ingredient for a low score at Victoria. A good example of this is the 5th hole, which is a long par-5 and features a tee shot to a narrow fairway. Not only that but the right side of the fairway is protected by out of bounds, meaning you cannot afford to stray too far away from the centre.

Generally, the course is quite flat throughout but there are several water hazards and bunkers which make it tough. Water doesn’t come into play until the 7th hole, where you are required to hit a tee shot over a lake and on the 11th, water is present all the way along the left side. Coupled with bunkers to the right, the 11th is another hole which requires accuracy off the tee.

Despite being challenging in places, Victoria is suitable for players of all abilities, thanks to the numerous tee boxes on each hole.

"1 - 1st Class Holiday"

As with previous years our week's golfing holiday in Spain went without a hitch. Accommodation at Mar Menor Residents was clean well equipped and closed to the hotel facilities. Transport, including from and to Alicante Airport, was on time and comfortable. Thanks again to Maria and Jeff for their efforts
