Alto Golf Description

The Alto Golf Course is a 18 hole course located close to the fishing village of Alvor near to Portimao. This course is situated close enough to the ocean to give the player an occasional sea view. A simple par 3 opens your round but it is deceiving to what is in store. The Alto Golf Course is considered a good test of the ability of the player with strategic bunkers, dog-legs, elevated greens and well placed trees. A further noteworthy challenge is the par 5 on the sixteenth that is considered to be one of the longest holes in Europe.

Definitely worth playing

Not as good as Gramacho but still a good course. I didn't like the par 3 start but other than that some good holes. Greens are tricky but good condition following heavy rain. Fairways were lush but somewhat damaged by players not replacing divots after the rain.
Alto Pestana - missing hole!

Mair from Portugal
Very slow play - made far worse by the terrible golfers in front who sometimes took 10 strokes to finish the hole. Surely such busy courses should have marshals to speed up play Course was but not bad but what happened to the 'legendary 600 metre' hole which is still advertised on their website? Seems they have put in a series of short par 3s which are not great. Not worth the green fee when compared to other courses in the area.
Famously long par 5 16th hole abolished

Very disappointing to find that the famously long par 5 16th hole has been abolished and replaced with a par 3 and an ordinary par 5.

Further improvements to the Alto Golf & Country Club are taking place, coinciding with considerable restructuring of the resort. In January, the complex announced that Commandant Jose Barroso Pereira and Dr. Nuno Barroso Pereira had acquired a significant stake in the business. More golf course maintenance equipment, re-fitting of the golf shop and major landscaping improvements to the clubhouse surrounds are some of the projects under way. Mr. Ed Edwards has been appointed as the new Resort Director, having previously held senior management positions in golf resorts in the USA, Egypt, Oman and Ireland and consultancy roles with golf developments worldwide.
The 'Ernesto de Sousa Cup' was held on the Alto Golf Course near Alvor and was won by Amíliar Fonseca with Pedro Miguel Sousa in second place.
