Santo Antonio Description

The Santo Antonio Course was originally named the Parque da Floresta Golf Course and is located at Budens which is beyond Lagos in the western Algarve. The architect has created a fascinating and challenging course which unique in its style in the Algarve. There is a tendency for golfers to return for another round in an attempt to master the more demanding holes.

The holes present varied attractive views of the surrounding countryside which are sometimes lined on the horizon by the distant sea. The fairways that roll up and down through the hills often demand very good placing and very accurate shots. Golfers may find the topographical nature of the fairways are as much of a playing challenge as the actual layout of the course.

Interesting Layout, Fairly tough, So-so conditionn

Peter Therrien from Portugal
Very interesting course, with a variety of holes. Cart a must even though I play a hilly course at home and always walk it. The cart paths for the first 5 holes are downright dangerous, so be very careful ( especially second tee, 5th and 6th). Greens in very good condition, but the fairways not great. As others have said, the course is a little tricky the first time around. Pretty good value for the price, but if you are expecting a well manicured resort course, this isn't it. It plays pretty tough, and you need to hit good shots.

Amazingly picturesque course, very challenging for first time playing, maybe a second round with more course knowledge would make it kinder.

A great way to start a sunny Sunday in the Algarve. Nice course but challenging if you haven’t played it before as lots of little obstacles all the way around. A buggy is a must unless you fancy a full aerobic work out. Friendly staff so all in all worth a return visit.
Not for me

Viewing the course looks amazing, however playing it is another matter, for me there was to many blind shots which slows down play and for that reason would not play again.
