Dissatisfied customer

Very unhappy, live on the algarve, golf course is overrated, and overpriced. I have played here three times and never again. Each game I played took far too long, with constant hold ups through slow play in front. The marshals serve no purpose, and do not encourage slow groups to increase there pace. On several tees people are selling lost golf balls, which should not be allowed on the course. The course is looking tired, fairways bare, tees not in good condition. Espiche is far better, and more cost effective.

Lagos Course in October

I only played 9 holes Lagos Course, which is in perfect shape in October. Exciting landscaped space with excellent views of the lagoon and the sea. The resort is extremely well maintained; certainly perfected with a new clubhouse. The price is a bit borderline especially in October; for the nice lady in the golf shop on the quite "cheap" Twilight offers from 14.00 o'clock pointed out.

Demanding and hilly

In September 2019 we played Alvor and Lagos this 27-hole course. Both are demanding and hilly. Nice tees overlooking the sea. The condition was great. The bar is very simple. All in all OK.

5-star., What else?

Overall good overall condition, unfortunately, there are always areas next to the fairways, which look like construction sites. Unfortunately, the terrain is not finished yet. but you can see this in Portugal again and again.
The greens were in very good condition and could often be well played from outside with the partner.
Our favorite was the order Praia (19) and Lagos (10). The link course is sensational and allows incredibly long strikes.
All in all a pleasure to experience this place.
The clubhouse is insufficient, but now a really chic building is built, you can be curious. We were in the hotel, so the drink afterwards on the terrace with a fantastic view of the square could be taken.

Great golf course, great environment

The golf course currently only has a prov. Clubhouse with adventurous loungers. A shower and wardrobe for men and women. Somehow special. The place Alvor then compensates the whole thing. The nine holes Praia Lagos are average. Care condition good

A feast for the eyes

The course is in top condition with lightning fast greens. Very varied fairways with fantastic views. Is also good to do with push trolley. Only the way to the valley to the driving range unnecessary. The CLUBHOUSE is currently not adequate, but you also come to play golf. And that was great!

Nice, good view

We played Alvor and Lagos on 23.02.19. Buggy bar we have seen at least twice. Clubhouse ok; unfortunately not the great view as from the old place. If necessary, the terrace in the hotel (100m away from the parking lot) can be used. But restoration available and open with us.
Space is already very dry; but the greens are great and fast. Unfortunately, we ended up behind a group of 12 people; the Marshalls have made every effort. Still went through in 4h10; course slow for two, but for the 4-er flights forward the time was ok. The place can not do that.

Hammer Square

I played the course for the first time in February 2019 and was totally impressed by the place: we started tea 19 and then had a perfect links course right in front of us. 30 meters before the start of the green, get out the putter and let the ball run already makes mood. I do not know any other place on the Algave that offers this. Later it went to the 1-9, from the fairway condition still left-character, the fairways but now framed by trees instead of dunes.

Disturbing for me, the locals have offered their collected balls for sale at almost every tea box (tip: on the later tracks are the cheaper) and the clubhouse, in which the Gastro unfortunately was closed. But here the new building 2020 is to be opened. Also a buggy bar was missing.

Beautiful views, varied layout but inappropriate price-performance ratio

We have been playing the course for over 8 years and we like it again and again in view of the varied layout and the beautiful sea views.
This time, however, we have to say that 99 EUR pp (and without buggy!) In view of the below-average care condition (especially the greens are consistently in a rather poor condition!) Are not appropriate - I must clearly contradict previous speakers.
The other places nearby (eg Espiche) can do much better, partly with cheaper green fees.

Perfect condition and great looks

We played the course in July 2018 in the combination Lagos and Praia. We can not judge the other nine holes Alvor. From the combination played we liked the part of Lagos better. It is more in the upper part of the square and you have just from almost anywhere beautiful views of the lagoon or the open sea. Simply beautiful and one forgets to play in the pure almost golf.
You fairways are wide enough and everything is in great condition. Characteristic of the deductions. We have probably never seen such quality. The lower nine holes of the Praia are a left course, which was also very nice. However, we liked the part of Lagos better because it has more to offer visually more. We rented a cart here in midsummer, which seems quite sensible due to the sometimes very long paths between the holes, especially in summer.
The green fee, we paid 150 euros for two people with Cart, is certainly not cheap, but for the space and the addition quite appropriate.
We would like to play the course again at any time, but rather in the combination of Alvor / Lagos, as we enjoy the views from the top of the sea and the lagoon.
The rest of the staff was always super friendly, with the exception of the bartender on the golf terrace, who did not seem to want much.
In conclusion, absolutely great worthwhile golf course in the Algarve.

Great place

Have played the course several times and always find it nice and varied. The view of the bay of Alvor / Lagos is fantastic! The place condition was perfect. The reception at the front desk is friendly and courteous. But: Unfortunately unfriendly service in the restaurant, lack of supply and massive renovation needs in the toilets! Therefore at least one point deduction.

Again absolutely top!!!

After playing Lagos & Praia 3 years ago, we played Alvor & Praia this time.
Palmares is the only course in the Algarve that has real left holes (20-26) with the Praia Course! These are super tricky and were created by Robert Trend Jones jun. once conjured to the Atlantic.
The Alvor course offers wonderful views of the bay, the sea and the hinterland. Golfers are the "old" Alvor trains a real dream! For me, Palmares, with Monte Rei, San Lorenzo, Val de Lobo Royal and Villamoura Old, belongs to the best the Golf in the Algarve has to offer...!
Easter Special 75, - € per person incl. Car!
For this place a bargain ... !!!

Easy field

A field to play fast and make results, very wide streets, very short holes, the only defense the green, in general lines very boring.

Great!

I (bogey player) played holes 10-27 (Lagos and Praja) in mid-December. The condition of the course was very good for the season (fairways and greens). As a guest of the boutique hotel "on site", the green fee is moderate. Overall, a great mix of left and open parkland course. It's always fun to play a high quality design (Trent Jones Jr.).

Top place, everything else flop!

I played the course on Thursday, November 24,2016 in the combination Lagos and Praia. The receptionist is friendly and helpful. The training infrastructure is good, but with the exception of the driving range, unfortunately, not well maintained. The rest of the infrastructure such as Club House, restaurant and so on is quite simply bad and unappetizing. Here you wear things obviously do not care what is really a pity. The Caddy Master is already in the morning tired and lets me do everything himself, but looks to me like to... The starters, however, is helpful and nice. The course is varied, difficult because fast fairways and even faster, hard greens. A beautiful links course with good qualities and great fairways on the part of Praia along the sea. The railway runs through rarely and does not interfere. On the tee boxes often miss ball washer with water (without benefit of nothing !!), towels, benches, litter bins, fairway panel. The place deserves my opinion, a good and should be played. The rest you can forget. Therefore, a total of only average. Too bad that people here are obviously have no passion and no professional pride at work.

Expensive and poor maintenance condition

At 105 EUR sure an expensive place, which is his claim but not fair in relation to care and facilities. Fairways and bunkers in poor condition, as well as charts and trolleys. From the Dixi toilets on the round not to mention. The clubhouse is old and rundown, total convinced the place is not what is not because of its wonderful location and the attractive design but at its unkempt impression.

Golfing is super...

Everything good on the court, only the restaurant is not. Slow and the food is not good. Even the many British eat there nix.
The service in the ProShop and instruction from Marshall are but top.

Good layout, little comfort

The place has potential are among the best courses in the Regionzu. The layout is varied, beautifully landscaped, partly challenging and physically demanding. In particular, the Railways 1-18 who are more hilly and sometimes very long. In the heat it can be really exhausting because uphill already. Unfortunately, there are few opportunities to get drinks because during the round, the clubhouse is always high on the railways and in a pinch is there too little time. What stands out are largely missing benches between the fairways, if one is there, they can hardly be used. Unless you want to continue playing with a few splinters of wood in the ass.
The fairways were in mid-October well maintained, the greens despite rains in advance quickly and on track. Exciting and scenically exceptional are the hard fairways of holes 19-27 oceanfront. Flat and typical links course layouts. And where else, the railway runs through the middle of the golf course.
Beautifully the view from the clubhouse terrace. The compensation for the physical effort after the game to come back.
Service of the staff is friendly but overall a little sleepy.
All in all a good place with potential if funds for infrastructural improvements can be provided.

Fantastic place

We played the combination Lagos / Praia. Super nice place, very well maintained. Buggy is recommended to enjoy the game because of the long distances and height differences. Very friendly staff. The somewhat outsourced driving range needs to be revised, but that was already in the works. Highly recommended.

Beautiful place - Delay of game, no Marshall in sight!

Dear golfers, I have played the course in early October. The course was in good condition and the greens are very fast. The round started with me my Löchern19-27 (left) in the dunes. Of the topography nothing special. It goes back and forth along the dunes.
The view across the area is really nice and makes it out towards the sea to play. Exact match is required, because the place has a lot Buschwerg. The fairways are extremely hard! The holes 1-9 to go around the mountain. For me, the nicer part because he also has some great views and is well laid out. The bunkers defending very well the greens.
All in all a great day when the round was not infinitely long. Ahead of four more fights that have explored every corner of the square, and have been much time left. But going on vacation before. Have fun playing!

Fantastic location near the sea

In February 2013 I have played the course 3 times and was able to play all 27 holes. Hole 1 to 18 are applied to a mountain, and from time to time to play in the sea and can then enjoy the great view. Fairway in very good condition and the greens a challenge. The holes 19 to 27 are then directly behind the dunes to the sea. Fairways hard and there you have to go ran very emotional. Just beat it can quickly mean the ball lands in one of the bushes. These holes are very different than the first 18, but also its charm.
Very nice and friendly team on the court, shop and restaurant. If you are in Lagos, then you should definitely play there. I can only recommend Buggy! ;-) More pictures and information can be found in my golf blog at:

Slowly and close the left course

The place is completely rebuilt. Thus, the holes of 1-18 still some potential as forgiveness, this is from the latest in hole 19-27 (left course) abruptly ended when one does not einschätz the place and the location of the many islands clean bush or knows where it goes through the lost ball high.
The greens were very fast and dis fairwais very hard so the ball can easily go into the bushes even with a clean drive. Here would be softer greens, especially in the slopes desirable.

Where is the old charm?

The place was really a shock to us. Where is the charm of the place go?
By converting to 29 holes and the associated changes is the "old Palmares" nothing more left.
It still needs to be crooked and always unansehlicher?
With all Resekt from the demands of the course is only remains to say that the desert is alive!

Super palmares

I have played the course 3 times this year already. The nine tracks on the beach are designed as a left-course. The course is in top condition, after all construction work has been completed on the site. The new clubhouse and the hotel will probably only be built if Portugal is back out of the crisis! But the place is great!

Poor value for money

Several years ago, we have already played the course and it was quite impressed. Now the path leads over long distances through quasi "sites" and many fairways are in poor condition. Because of the construction, there are often long distances between green and next tee and the signs and the description of the course of the fairways is deficient or absent. The place may well be quite well again after completion, but is now a green fee of EUR 80, - not justified.

Top place for the future

The old 18-hole course Palmares is converted into a 27-hole facility, currently (turn of the year 2010/11) 18 not contiguous holes playable, but already an experience to play down to the sea or in the Links Course manner along the sea. play on the weekend, then it bypasses the construction noise. This is perhaps the best place in the Algarve. a real alternative to Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura.
