Good service by algarve.net.

No surprise. Good prestations with correct set clubs. Correctly par 3 course with nice greens.

We come back.

Nice course
We booked for two people to play luckily joined up with a very friendly member who shows us around the layout. Although short and only a par 3 it is tricky.

Staff friendly.

Top tip is to make sure you remember your glove and some balls as 70 Euros for 2 gloves and 12 balls seems a bit steep to me.

Great par 3 course
Great little challenging course

Which has a little of e everthing

Trees water bunkers hazards the lot

Good outing practice greens and a driving range

Just wish they watched out for those who don't or can't play golf because their etiquette bunkers not being raked, pitch marks not getting repaired, turf being lifted and not being replaced. But don't be put off as this is a little gem for those wanting to learns and those who don't play often

Clean up the lake
Rather tight nine hole course, all Pär 3, moderate ground conditions, could be better. Filthy lake, overcome by algae. Limited choice of food in clubhouse.

Great little place
It really is a little treasure this place! Maria and her team do a great job. One or two of the holes are distinct challenges!! Greens are kept in admirable condition.

Pleasant surprise
Challenging par 3 course, greens in good shape. Good test for irons and short game. Quirky layout transitioning from some holes but enjoyed it and would play again. Also, played 18 holes in 3 hours.

Really nice course, very helpful staff in clubhouse, all in all a really good day out. I would recommend a round here as an essential part of everyone's golf trip.

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.

Good value
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.

Lovely and challenging!
As beginners, my wife and I have found Balaia great for developing our games. It may be a par 3 course, but there a plenty of real challenges. It is also a beautiful setting with a lovely clubhouse staffed by friendly and helpful people.

Great course to work on your short game.
Well presented par 3 course. Staff were extremely friendly as well as other golfers on the course. I played rounds on my own and was invited to join other people's rounds who were fantastic and made fOr and even more pleasant experience.

Lovely wee course
First time having played this course although only a 9 holer it was a surprising challenge. We enjoyed it so much we played a second 18 two days later. Well laid out and maintained will certainly recommend this course and will be back to play it again.

Agréable parcours. 9 pars 3 pas si simple.Les arbres ont toute leur place et rendent le parcours compliqué.

Great course to play for great price also the rental clubs were very good compared to the club's some other courses provide. When back in albufeira I would definitely play this course again. Also all the staff at the course were very friendly.

Golf with hure
Lovely short course with some quite challenging holes.

Gets quite congested at the first and particularly second holes.

Tip - buy balls before you go. €35 for 15 balls is extortionate in my opinion.

Otherwise, a great days golf.

Was an ok course. Some tough par 3s not much room for error. Course was in good condition. We rented clubs which were ok put the pitching wedge nearly snapped. It did get busy and can get slow going around

Don't be fooled by the Par...
Short Par Three course but with some tricky holes. Definitely worth a visit to challenge the higher handicapper or the short hitter. Nice course and worth the money. Bit more relaxed than most places

A great short par 3 course, a little difficult to understand the transition from 1st green to second tee as green is not in line of vision. Friendly staff n restaurant a very enjoyable day and value for money

Short game gem
Nice course for working on your short game. Had well earned grub after 9 which set us up well for the second 9. Well maintained.
