Easy-going golf. Not over challenging. Nice.
Really enjoyed this course but its not as designed as others. Quite forgiving by course to suit the highest handicaps. Average to good conditions.

Nice course, in good condition, many different layouts for holes, staff was friendly and the clubs we rented better than average. Pace of play was quick and this is a solid value for the price.

Played today with my son. I was quiet disappointed. There is a net for 'drivibg' range where you hut your own balls, along with a scabby chipping area.

The Nike hire clubs where average at best along with many of the tees.

Water on virtually every hole makes it almost a joke with being adjacent sea and windy. My handicap is 6BTW.

Would not return, sorry.

Excellent round at sunny Salgados!
Excellent course with lots of fair holes rewarding good shots.

Good course for a mixed group of golfers, some single figure handicaps and some 'once-a-year-golfers'. Greens were excellent too!

Of particular mention is the admin staff, outstanding customer service and organisation for a group of 11 guys. Flawless!

Great Course
A friend and I booked Salgados through Algarve Golf during our holiday and were very impressed with the service from both companies. This was only my 4th round of golf so I did find the water challenging but still enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful and the course was in great condition.

We had no equipment with us at all but got a great deal for 18 holes, a buggy and 2 sets of clubs.

Enjoy the course very windy - time between tees needs to be reviewed too many players out and disappointed that on the 10 hole another 2 ball were introduced slowing play down even further. Starter friendly can’t say the same for receptionist. Overall good experience would come again

Good but could be better
Great course and very challenging but the quality of clubs was very poor. Hadn't even been cleaned from their previous use and we weren't even provided with free golf tee's which is a bit stingey. Would play it again though but only with my own clubs.

Nice course with water at nearly every hole but lots of rubbish at the course

Golf at Salgados - very worthwhile.
Course was in excellent condition. Arrangements for picking up clubs and buggies were very straightforward. The reception desk was very unfriendly and the resort should examine this as we are not the first group to comment on this. Overall though a very enjoyable days golf.

Great experience!
Tough course, especially when the wind picks up. Beautiful layout with people working around the clock to maintain the high level of quality seen throughout. The only negatives I'd find in Salgados is that there were a couple of flooded bunkers which were near enough impossible to play out of. Another is the greens which were of a poorer quality when compared to the perfect fairways.

Overall an awesome experience and will definitely play again.

Salgados review
A challenging course. Well presented. Water for a large number of the holes not always in line of play but to the sides. Well worth a visit.
Paul from United Kingdom

Great place.
A great test, good mix of long and short holes, a lot of dog legs but fairways wide but beware, water is every where... take plenty of balls!!

Salgados June 2018
Very challenging course spoilt as only the front 9 was open, we played it twice which was ok but would have liked to do all 18. The par 5's are really tough holes and worth their stroke indexes of 1 and 3. Will go back next year looking forward to playing the full course.

Lots and lots of water so being wayward not an option on a lot of holes. Liked the course though but staff could break out a smile once in a while

How many balls did I lose in the water
Excellent challenge beat me again
martin Pollard from United Kingdom
on Tue, 12th Jun 2018
Course lived up to our expectations. Some tight tee off positions and water on 17 holes. Front nine more difficult than back nine in our opinion. Hole 2 is a real tester par 5 with some tight fairways. You really have to be pretty straight and accurate. Very enjoyable experience. Ladies have a 1000m shorter course than men off the yellow tees. Needless to say the wife won our friendly match

Nice course 😎
Nice course , in good condition. Plays easy off yellows , worth playing off whites for the extra challenge. A bit of a pain that the starter starts people off the 10th tee aswell as the first. Leads to congestion on the 10th which can disrupt your round.
Richard from United Kingdom
on Sun, 10th Jun 2018
Beautiful course, lots of water. Fairways quite wide and forgiving when there isn't a water obstacle

Staff throughout the course are incredibly rude. Only the barman was polite.

Nice course shame about the staff and pace of play
Very nice course but very slow. Was regularly being pestered and threatened by a member of the course staff/starter who had the worst attitude I have ever encountered on a golf course. This despite our group being held up on every shot. 5 hour round versus a sub 4 hour 18 holes the next day on another course proves that it wasn't us being slow.
Brian from United Kingdom
on Fri, 1st Jun 2018
Very slow round.
Nice course lots of water, but far to many people playing. Took hours to get round.

Decent but not the best
Decent but too flat for me. Very busy and it always felt a bit rushed. Looked even busier at lunchtime.
Alberto from Italy

Salgado rider
Nice course, fun for a medium-high score player. A lot of water f, required precisone from the tee shot, but then and (for me) third shots without too much trouble. Green small, but easy and unprotected: guaranteed fun (HCP 21)
matthew from United Kingdom
on Thu, 24th May 2018
Good course, lovely greens but far too slow
First time playing in Portugal and this was the first course I played. I have nothing to compare it to but the course was tough with high winds and lots of water. A good challenge for any golfer. The course wasn’t overly long and you could get away with hitting long irons on most holes. Only downside was the pace of play. Far too slow.
David from United Kingdom

Worth a go
Good course, excellent greens. Hired clubs are in poor condition. Some of the staff are very miserable.
Michael from Portugal

To much unexpected side waters. Strong wind and inexperienced players cause long playing times. Grens are excellent.

Home Course
Always love going back, class it as my home course in the Algarve and never have any complaints. Greens were far better this year, looks as though the course has benefitted from some much needed rain. Will be back in October.

Darragh from Ireland

Great course, Lovely weather but extremely slow play. Also I would advise bringing your own clubs as the rental clubs are terrible. Other than the slow play and poor clubs it was a magnificent course to play and I really enjoyed it.

Played before a few years ago but has matured really well some cracking holes with tricky water features which make you think before you tee off

another lovely course

Peter from Germany
on Thu, 12th Apr 2018
Golf course very nice, in great condition, eventhough it rained a lot .

Pitty though that golfers were allowed to start at the 10th hole which delayed our round substantial.

Great course with excellent greens. Played in a challenging breeze made the course very interesting. Obviously a popular course as it was very busy. Staff very helpful and welcoming.

Salgados Disappointment
Greens are great but course in general is tired looking. Not worth 70 euros to play

Hyvä kenttä kun lyönti kunnossa
Hieno kenttä - hyvässä kunnossa. Keltaisilta pärjää vesiväylillä pääasiassa raudoillakin, muutamalla pidemmällä väylällä tilaa on kohtuullisen hyvin. Griineillä joko piilokallistuksia tai sitten en osannut lukea niitä ;o). Täälläkään ei kannata vuokrata mailoja klubilta vaan muualta (hyviä vuokrafirmoja useita).

A nice day of golf.
The place was in a very good condition. The greens were very fast. We had no waiting. The service was good.

Demanding but fair
Challenging course layout in close vicinity to a bird sanctuary. Good shape despite some construcion work ongoing. Marshal service might be improved toachieve decent speed of game. (more than 5 hours is too slow)

Nice and easy course
The course is very beautiful, though all flat with generous fairways and landing zones around the greens, very beautiful to walk, well maintained and very enjoyable. Maybe a bit too easy for more experienced players (not my case). 6 euros for a hand trolley the only drawback.

We don't need buggy on this course!

At first time we ask only 2 greenfees for 140 euros and at least your order was 160 with the buggy!

Very nice golf course, well maintained, not too tricky just a little with water in some places. We did not like the fact that we had to wait a long time at each hole starting at hole nr 10.

Challenging course. Lots of water. Very busy, but moved pretty well with some slight delays.. 4 1/2 hour round. No buggys available. Course and greens in good shape. Flat course, so walking OK.

OK, but better options elsewhere.
The course was an enjoyable one and has some interesting holes. There are some minor course maintenance issues, but nothing too bad. The staff weren't the friendliest (very unusual for Portugal) and service was slow. The course had a lot of groups of half drunk hackers, which is the main reason it only gets 3/5. Like playing through the bars of Albufeira.

An excellent, interesting and challenging course with lots of water so it makes the average golfer think about placement and risk/reward shots.

Would certainly recommend a visit for golfers in the area.

Barry from United Kingdom
on Thu, 14th Sep 2017
Good value
Not bad for a resort course, plenty of water hazards and be warned, think about hitting a long iron on some of the par 4's, any wood can and probably will end up in trouble! Both rounds that I played here were quite long, 5 hours as the course is very busy, however, it is also very good value (as long as you don't hit too many proV1's in the water hazards!😀)
Pia from Finland

Nice course. Back nine was more complicated. Too many people playing at the same time, very long waiting times at every tee.

Amazing golf course
Really enjoyed the golf course was amazing. The only thing I would moan about is we got a buggy for 2 people to be a little bit quicker and was paired up with 2 people walking the course and then was asked to be a little bit quicker but was having to wait for the 2 people walking. Would suggest that you don't put walkers and buggies together.

Salgados in the wind
Good but tough course( especially in the wind) Rental clubs were reasonable quality Nike SQ, but need re-gripping, especially the putters ! Will improve as it matures.

Une palmeraie
Golf tout plat avec 500 palmiers répartis sur le parsours. On se croirait à Marrakech. Contrairement à ce qui est dit, pas de links, la mer est à 200m et on ne la voit pas. Sans grand réel intérêt, amusant et de bons greens.

So many palm trees! So many lakes!

Great golf! Unique. You have to play there!

EDWARD from United Kingdom

Great course, poor service
Course itself excellent - would be 5 stars comfortably. However quality of the rental clubs was pretty poor - one driver had no grip on it! Also customer service not what it should be; we appeared to be an inconvenience rather than a welcomed paying guest.

Salgados Easter Special round of golf.
Lovely course, in good condition, that offers a real challenge to golfers of any handicap. Hired clubs did make a difference in a stiff breeze, but still managed 35 pts. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would be more than happy to play it again in the future.
Michael from United Kingdom

Salgados Golf Club.
Great course with plenty to offer in both challenge and enjoyment. Using hired clubs instead of my own made a difference with a score of 32 pts playing off 18 handicap. Michael Currie, member of Edenmore Golf and Country Club.

Salgados July 2017
Played this course twice in mid July. Good test for the average golfer. Lots of water if you don't hit the ball straight. One really daunting par 5 on the front 9 with large lake to go over for 3rd shot. Greens were ok but had a few bare patches. Good deal for round,buggy and clubs and no restriction on when we could play. Only complaint about clubs were no stiff driver and putters not the best. Clubhouse nice and food and drinks good. Overall good value price wise compared to Villamoura courses.
