Quinta do Vale
18 Holes Eastern Algarve

Situated on the Guadiana River between Portugal and Spain, just to the north above Castro Marim Course and town, 3 kms North of the A22 / E1 motorway.
Turn off the A22 at the CASTRO MARIM exit ( last one before the bridge and Spain) turn left towards JUNQUEIRA( North) at the 1st Junction, (away from the town of Castro Marim) Follow up approx 3 kms. Look for a small sign to quinta do Vale on the right..take this turn and follow signs to clubhouse.

Brand New Course in the East Algarve. (as at 20th March 08) still a little rough on the fairways and edges, greens good. Generally a very interesting course..water features designed to catch you out, and make you really think about laying up or 'going for it!'. Low handicappers and/or long hitters will love it. The rest of us will buy extra balls.

Unusual mix of par 5 ( 6 of them) and tricky par 3's make this a very tactical course. With a nice country setting, this is a course to try once..and then go back again ( and again?!) to correct your mistakes! Water features on many holes..so take spare balls. Buggy recommended as it is a long course with highs and lows.

Monte Rei
18 Holes Deluxe

Take Exit 17 from the A22, ( Monte Gordo), follow 2 kms down to the EN125, turn right ( Toward Olhâo/ Tavira), through 2 roundabouts, (total approx 4 kms) , through the town of 'ALTURA' , and just after, take the (first or second sign) turn right to Vila Nova da Caçela. In the centro of the small town, at the crossroads, turn left, and follow the Golf/MontRei sign inland. 4 kms down the road is the entrance gate to the Estate.

Green fees include Buggies

Spectacular new course by J Nicklaus. Designed as an exclusive course, with prices to match..buggies included in the price, as is valet parking and bag drop. Free driving range for clients use only... 15 Minute intervals, and separate holes mean you will be playing in your own 'space' without pressure, and no-one else in sight. In excellent condition already, and will get better. Some tricky holes, and a lot of water to cross..or avoid...but fairways generous and bunkers have a 'run off' to always leave a forward shot...greens can be tight, but fast.
Bring handicap cards..and be dressed for golf, as the management are vigilant, and require clients to adhere to golf dress, etiquette and manners!

Old Course

18 Holes

Into Vilamoura estate from the EN125 turn left at the second roundabout. Well signposted

t
Everyones favourite, and hard to get tee times on. Winding down through pine trees and giving any golfer a beautiful view of the original Algarve course. Sometimes tight shots through the trees, but always onto generous fairways. This course sometimes gets slowed by the sheer volume of players, but is always worth playing.

Laguna and Millennium

Laguna and Millennium
Out of the same clubhouse, these courses are designed to be totally different to each other.
Millennium generally has wider, more open holes throughout, although a few tighten up through the pine trees.
Laguna demands more accuracy , and has some trickier shots to play, with some water features to conquer, Both courses are well worth playing

Pinhal

18 Holes

Into Vilamoura estate from the EN125 follow marina signs onto the dual carriageway, keep a look out for signs on the left of the road. Follow the signs through the estate to the course.

t

As the name suggests, this course winds through pine trees, but without squeezing the shots too much. In the centre of Vilamoura, it is surprisingly spacious and demands accurate drives to keep out of trouble. The course is fairly level and has some tricky bunker placements to catch the unwary.

Salgados

18 holes

Turn off the EN 125 at Guia, head towards the Gale beach. At the traffic lights turn right, 3 kms on turn left onto the course

t

This is the only true links course in the Algarve, water on most holes, it is often mistakenly seen as a difficult course, in fact the fairways are often more generous than one would expect. Some wayward shots will dissappear into the water, and this may push up the scorecard. The afternoon onshore breezes can also make this a difficult course when windy. A new clubhouse and renewal works will improve the course, especially in the wetter periods when it tended to be boggy in lower areas. Excellent value links golf.

Buggy recommended. and bookable ( pay at course).€40t

Gramacho and Pinta

Just to the West of Lagoa on the EN125, turn off near the Slida and Splash Water Park, follow golf signs.

t

Two courses, now each with it's own clubhouse for check in, set just to the West of Carvoeiro. Both courses of excellent quality, and although some parts have been overdeveloped, and the houses impinge on the golf, definitely worth playing. Some parts are quite steep so buggies are advised. Set in Olive groves and valleys.

Silves

turn off en125 beside International school. thru dodgy cross road...keep going straight on for about 6kms, over the motorway and thru nurseries.narrow road keep going!

t

My Personal favourite excellent value Shortish, but pretty course, Par 71, buggy advised as it can be hilly. It has some excellent holes to play and is a very scenic country course which meanders through the hills and olive and pine groves, just south of Silves.
Good to play at all levels, wide fairways mean that you have to try hard to get lost..but a few tricky holes that will make you think hard! One beaut elevated tee...

Alto
Alvor

5679 Meters 18 Holes Par 71

Halway between Portimao and Alvor on the coast road. From Alvor turn east and follow the main road past the private Hospital.

t

A simple par-3 opens your round but it is not an indication of the ease of playing this course as it is considered a good test of a player’s ability with strategic bunkers, dog-legs, elevated greens and many well placed trees. The par-5 on the sixteenth that is one of the longest holes in Europe.

Morgado and Alamos

White 6,399 m
Yellow 5,875m
Red 4,824 m.

From Portimao, take the road for Monchique, passing under the A22 motorway. Or Come off the Motorway at the Portimao/Monchique sign.. In 1 kilometer turn left at sign for the golf. Then follow signs for 3 kilometers to clubhouse.

t

Two new courses to the north of Portimao on the road to Monchique.

Morgado is set in a large estate with undulating land and small valleys and now has deep agressive bunkers especially on the 18th hole.
The approach shots must be accurate to avoid the steep faced bunkers and the large greens need good putting skills. It is a long course to challenge the big hitters and has generous fairways.

ALAMOS, a new course through the hills then onto a plain, where the holes meander around each other. Still a little 'fresh' as the course opened Feb 2006, the tees and greens are perfect, but fairways and edges still need attention. An Interesting course and well worth playing.

Designed by Pepe Cancedo, one of Spain's most respected golf architects, ,whose golf course construction often follows natural terrain features. Built mainly along a steep sided valley its holes run through vineyards and ravines, and are edged by olive, palm, eucalyptus and pine trees. It has been recently altered, to level out some of the sloping fairways , and to make it (slightly!) less daunting for the higher handicappers

The first hole is a 312m par 4 which curves east, a long hit for those wishing to reach it in two. The first nine ends with a degree of difficulty, one's third shot to the green must go over a stream. On the second nine, the highlight is the 11th, whose green is well protected by water, and finally the 18th, which ends right beneath the clubhouse.

The newest Algarve course. located between Boa vista and P Floresta on the West coast.Clubhouseclubhouse is complete and has the usual amenities. Tricky to access from the EN125, follow signs inlad through the ESPICHE village. Good course bounded by scrub, so lost balls stay lost...some tight fairways need accuracy, others you can let rip on. Fun to play and surprises on many holes. A few blind holes where you have to hit over the mound, and pray...buggy recommended. Greens good quality, but slower than you think.... Worth playing...currently excellent value.
