Southern Golf (2001)
Our rates are for two rounds on the 9 hole Balaia Golf Course. Opened in April 2001 this small and attractive golf course offers the opportunity to improve your iron shots and your short game. It carries the title of Executive Course which in its name implies the quality of its layout and subtle challenges. Located at the back of the Balaia Village Holiday Complex it presents from the first tee a charming view of most of the course with the ribbon of blue sea as its background. A course to test the ability of a golfer to control shot length and direction.

Course News & Notices
Ever since the Balaia nine-hole par-3 course near Albufeira opened in 2001 they have held regular tournaments. Thanks this year to the generosity of Graeme and Christine Mitchell from Scotland a new permanent annual Cup has been presented to Balaia. For those unfamiliar with the Scottish word 'quaich', this is a wide, silver 'cup of kindness' traditionally filled with whisky and passed round from one person to another. There were 62 players in the tournament played on an aggregate stroke-play pairs format, and the two-some of J. M. Rodrigues and Joao Figueiredo won with a net score of 55 strokes (1 over par).
A testing 9 hole 3 par. Course was not busy (April) and was well maintained on the whole. Some tricky holes - plenty of challenges, water hazards and narrow fairways so you need to be able to hit fairly straight regardless of ability. Greens were quite tight and fast. Not too much sand thank goodness. The staff were very helpful and a credit to the course, but the hire clubs were generally of average quality. We enjoyed it nevertheless and would play again.
Even though it is only a par 3 course, the challenges are there.

This was the second time I have played here. As the first of 3 courses we played on this visit it was a great opportunity to practice in advance of playing the bigger more challenging courses we had booked. Interesting and quite tricky in places the course was quiet and well maintained.
