1. Salgados Golf Club

Advertise Here

Situated in one of the best-known regions of the Algarve, between Albufeira and Armação de Pêra, Salgados is already a "postcard" of Portuguese golf. In fact, the proximity of the sea and the variety of lakes make this a very interesting test of golfing skills, different from other courses in the Algarve. The original project is by the Portuguese designer Pedro de Vasconcelos with more recent contributions from other Portuguese architects. But the final layout was strongly influenced by Robert Muir Graves. This links, full of water hazards, is not very long, yet you will need all your skills to reach the greens. The accuracy of the drive is crucial for achieving a good score, thus making the course a pleasant experience, especially for technically-skilled players. The eighteen holes are well-balanced, as each half of the course has two par 5 holes of approx. 500 metres/547 yards, and three par 3 of more than 170 metres/205 yards. Other amenities include: Private beach.

2. Sheraton Algarve Hotel & Resort

Known for the impeccable condition in which it is kept, Pine Cliffs is a nine-hole course that runs along impressive cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. This is one of the country's most original golf courses, built in a pine wood at the edge of impressive cliffs, and overlooking the beautiful beaches of the Algarve and the Atlantic beyond. The nine-hole course is not very long, for only two holes run to more than 360 metres/394 yards. However, despite this, it presents an interesting challenge for the golfer, regardless of his or her handicap. As well as concerning himself with the playing area, Hawtree was careful to leave the surrounding land undisturbed and largely as it was before the course was built. The perfectly kept course opens with two undemanding holes, but the challenge gets tougher from the third hole, a par 4 for which the drive must go through a narrow gap between pine trees. After the fifth hole (the only par 5 on the course) comes the crown jewel: the 6th, a par 3 with a championship tee built over a ravine that requires a 205-metre/224-yards carry right over the beach to land on a deep narrow green. (A shop in the ravine selling golf balls would surely be a thriving business). For several years, the president of the club was the British motor racing star Nigel Mansell.
