Featured Portuguese Courses

Alamos

Alamos,
West Algarve,
Portugal

The Alamos Golf Course is one of the newer courses to open in the Algarve. Located just north of Portimao the 18 hole course is laid out as a neighbour to its sister course the Morgado Golf Course. The fairways meander through a 980 hectare estate with small valleys.

The immediate main characteristic factor is its large greens which place a demand on good putting skills as they are often raised above the fairway approach and involve several levels. Also, the accuracy of the players shot will be questioned by deep aggressive bunkers

Sonto Antonio (formerly Parque da Florest

Santo Antonio Golf Course,
West Algarve,
Portugal

The Santo Antonio Course was originally named the Parque da Floresta Golf Course and is located at Budens which is beyond Lagos in the western Algarve. The architect has created a fascinating and challenging course which unique in its style in the Algarve. There is a tendency for golfers to return for another round in an attempt to master the more demanding holes.

Silves Golf Course

Silves Golf Course,
West Algarve,
Portugal

Silves. This is the latest course belonging to the Pestana Group and is surrounded by typical Algarve fruit orchards and small farms. The course has been designed to test the quality in hitting a well directed ball using the correct choice of club. This point is immediately emphasised as you stand on the first tee faced by two water hazards flanking the fairway. The course has been described as designed for attacking play whilst the bunkers are well placed to cause possible trouble to the big hitters.
