Summary:

The Laguna Golf Course Vilamoura opened in 1990 and is part of the Oceanico Group of Vilamoura Golf Clubs.
 
The course was designed by the American Joseph Lee and is laid out on the low lying coastal terrain of the Vilamoura Golf Resort.
 
Some may recognise parts of this 6,100 metre, Par 72 course as being part of the original 27-hole Vilamoura III course, but Laguna is much more than a cut-down version of Villamoura III.
 
Laguna, with its many water hazards and few trees, is considerably different from the others at Vilamoura Golf and many of its holes have an almost links like feel. Although it has an open feel to it the numerous lakes act as a frequent hazard (coming into play on 11 of the 18 holes), plus there are nearly 80 bunkers to add challenge and, being on coastal land, the wind is often a factor in play blowing in off the sea and demanding to be taken into account.
 
Laguna Golf Club shares a large, welcoming clubhouse with the neighbouring Millennium Golf Course.
 
Visitors are always welcome. Contact club to make arrangements.

If you've ever looked at a Renault Laguna and thought wow then Vilamoura Laguna evokes the same sensations. Looks are great on the outside but would you really want to be seen inside! Played the course in mid-September and it looked as though all the old BMC employees at Longbridge had tried their hand at green maintenance. Now I know they like to get hundreds of us visitors through each day but some basic tidying of the green surrounds and tee areas would go a long way to making it look better. It just felt flat and almost uninteresting (and was certainly the worst course of 4 we played) General feeling amongst 22 blokes over there on tour was that by comparison with the other courses this was one worth avoiding. Maybe it wasn't a "society" course but a surly starter certainly got us off on the wrong foot. There are better courses out there but if you love the challenge of playing in a wind on a tricky course this could be for you - or try the new Vauxhall instead.
