Course Review and Comments

This golf course has a lot of potential, yet doesnt seem to be mainted well at all. I played in April 2011, and some of the views were amazing. However, the fairways and the tees were absolutely COVERED in daisies. The bunkers were also full of water and the greens peppered with pitch marks!! The golf course is very expensive to play @ 95 Euros, with an extra 45 Euros for a buggy, which is a necessity, considering it is built on a mountain side!! I complained, waited for a week for a proper reply, in which they offered me a free round there, but it was of no use as I was back in the UK by then. I explained that this was not a good offer for that reason, but have since been told that I either accept the offer, or leave them alone. I genuinely would tell anyone who visits Madeira to visit Palheiro golf club over this course. For 140 Euros i have only been left disappointed and out of pocket. The course may be in top condition on your visit, but seriously, I wouldnt take the chance, as it could prove costly!!
