There are 36 golf courses across the Algarve, all well equipped, making the sport one of the main attractions of the region.
One of the unique features of the Espiche course is simply what’s not there! The beautiful rolling terrain, native vegetation, lakes, streams and flowers that line our fairways are only bordered by unspoiled countryside and local vineyards. No towering hotels or condominium projects; no villas lining the fairways; nothing but the natural beauty of the Algarve framed by the majestic Monchique mountains in the distance.
The Alto Golf course is located in an attractive area steeped in golfing tradition. Just a few kilometres away is the area where the game was first played in the Algarve, a long extinct, rudimentary layout with sand and oil greens, or 'browns', dating back to the 1920’s between Portimão and Praia da Rocha.
The present course is the result of a conversion from Ronald Fream’s original unique double-nine layout. The opening holes remain much as they were, but the new holes, five through thirteen, are those, which bring the course to potential championship status.
Within the natural amphitheatre of the Bay of Lagos, Robert Trent Jones II has fashioned Europe’s next great golf course, Onyria Palmares Golf. The brief given to this exceptional American golf course designer was to craft a 27-hole golf course which maximised the potential of its extraordinary environment. The result is a golf course of breathtaking natural beauty which is a delight to play.
Parque da Floresta is located amongst rolling, hilly terrain near the south-western tip of Portugal, the 'Land's End' of Continental Europe.
The Championship course is the late Sir Henry Cottons masterpiece and the course by which he wished to be remembered. He was the first to foresee the high potential for golf in the Algarve.
Boavista Golf resort is a welcome addition to the growing variety of golf courses available in the Algarve. The layout of the course enables all levels of golfer to enjoy playing the course and then socializing in the restaraunt and bar after.
Set in an area of undulating land not far from the popular seaside village of Carvoeiro, Pinta and Gramacho are the work of a master of course design, Ronald Fream.
