Good course
A good course not as challenging as it’s partner course Morgado but in reasonable condition. A few long walks between tees so take a buggy if it is a very hot day

Sehr enttäuschend Alamos
Der Platz ist das Geld nicht wert. Kein einziges Fleckchen Grün auf den Fairways. Die Grüns waren ok. Dem Personal waren die Gäste wohl nur lästig.

Álamos in the rain
Brilliant course highly recommend but when we played we had torrential rain and the course was flooded in 20 minutes and had to give up after 6 holes

Greens good but fairways have no grass
Probably would be a nice course if there was grass on the fairway. First hole a perfect drive straight down middle for it to keep rolling all way down into the rocks . Not how you want to start. Playing partner hit straight down middle of fairway on 3 other holes and because it was so sparse it was like a pin ball machine a nd the ball nowhere to be seen. Also very long walk between holes.

Autumn outing to the Algarve
We loved this course and returned having played it last year. The tees and greens were lovely but the fairways were burned to a crisp.

The lake by the 1st was empty and dry as a bone, as were all the streams and ponds even the reservoir, I think it's by the 9th was completely empty.

I pray the the coming months bring rain to the Algarve.

would miss it off my play list
while the extent of the drought is appreciated the fairways are just dust in many places

Not Much Fun
Again it took 4:45 hours to play. Course was dried out. Greens were good. Not much fun.

I feel for the owners as there isn't any water

Great course, greens were the best we've played on! Staff were helpful and made it easy for us. Excellent practice area and lovely course to play. Would suggest buggies are a must, quite hilly and few holes was a distance between green to next tee box. Very pleased with our visit.

Alamos Review.
If I could give it less I would. The staff are really nice there but that's about it. The course is by far the worst I've ever in my life played. The fairways were like concrete and not a patch of grass on them. The golf clubs we hired are the same clubs from 6 years ago. Absolutely brutal.

Etwas herausfordernd, aber gut zu spielen. Es war eine sehr entspannte Runde, denn es sehr wenig Betrieb. Viele bevorzugen den Morgado Course, der Alamos steht ihm aber in nichts nach. Cart empfehlenswert.

One of the worst golf experiences I have ever had! Firstly it is way over priced for what you get, the clubs they give you for rental are 30 years old and it’s not a complete set. Secondly, the play is so slow and nobody lets you through, would have easily been a 5 hour round and thirdly the staff there are so rude! I would never come here again and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

December golf
Course in great condition, friendly service and a lovely environment. The distances between holes are the longest I have ever seen, I would not play here without a buggy.

It was fun to play and getting a good deal (two players buggy 1 set for just under 200 euros) means I am not disappointed, even though ithe course is not that special.

Very challenging course, with beautiful scenery
Very challenging course, with beautiful scenery. Because the holes are very forgiveness as long as you stay on the fairway. Outside the fairways you can’t find your ball anymore, because of high grass and low growing butter flowers.

Fairways a bit worn in places but overall condition good with very good greens.

Belle journée
Nous avons été bien reçu par le personnel à notre arrivée. Le terrain est en assez bonne condition malgré le manque d’eau, les allées sont bien et donne beaucoup de roulement . Les verts sont très bien, beaucoup d’ondulation et c’est assez difficile d’en faire une bonne lecture. La vitesse de verts est bonne mais pas très rapide. En général nous avons bien apprécié notre journée.
Jamie Willacy from United Kingdom

Better courses out there
Quite a forgiving course for a casual golfer but my god its a trek. No buggies available when we played and felt like miles between holes. Play a bit rushed and generally the course was a bit too busy. We got teamed up with another 2-ball which I suppose is common but we paid a fortune for the experience with green fees, club & trolley hire so we should have been given the choice. No where near as organized as other courses and felt like they were just getting as many round as they could. Sorry wouldn't play there again.

Still playable after very long summer
You have to take into consideration the drought that this area has experience this year in particular.

Yes the majority of the fairways were burnt and without grass but you could not fault the greens or tee boxes which the course openly says they have to prioritise as both dams are dry

The course has the felling of being quite compared to others due to the design it’s a pity we did not get the chance to play in its glory as some of the holes would have been stunning.

3 old gits and a young one back in the Algarve
We love this course, actually far more that its sister course, Morgado. Alamos has some interesting holes, the views of the Monchique mountains are lovely, it's a challenge for medium and high handicaps, and it's usually very quiet (because most visitors to the region opt for Morgado. They don't know what they're missing!

3 Putting my way to the clubhouse.
The course was fairly difficult but the greens were extremely difficult. They undulated, sloped, and ran on some from a front to back pitch. Very hard to land the ball on the green and keep it there.

Alamos golfing experience
My favorite course played it twice and a great challange each time.

It was in great condition considering how dry it is, the greens were fantastic, a real challange for both speed and reading.

Staff were excellent very friendly and helpful, I would definately recommend if your in the vicinity.

A lot of wind and extremely dry. Very difficult to hold onto the greens.

Confidence booster course!
Was better than expected! There were reviews of slow play but I few through the course. The conditions were good except for most greens were slower than we would like! Shorter course big confidence booster is not a long hitter but most hit it straight on its narrow fairways

Course in good condition but play was exceptionally slow and the groups in front were not monitored. 5 hours to get round.!!

Good quality club hire and very friendly welcome at both check in and at the start.

Would definitely play this course again .Its a challenge but enjoyable

Alamos golf course
The Easter deal was very good 2players and a buggy with 2 sets of clubs for €143 and the alamos course was in very good condition
Felix from United States
on Wed, 30th Mar 2022
Leider in einem schlechtem Zustand.

Das Personal war zudem nicht sehr freundlich.

Keine Begrüßung,keine Verabschiedung.

Das Übungsgrün war überhaupt nicht zu gebrauchen da das

Fairway nicht bewachsen war.

Der Kurs ist interessant aber hat auch weite Wege.

Bitte nur mit Buggy wenn man nicht gut zu Fuss ist.

In meinen Augen gibt es wesetlich bessere Clubs an der Algarve(Hcp:9.0).

Richard from United Kingdom

Worth playing
Very good course and in good condition when we played in March ‘22. The layout is great, as were course conditions with the greens in particular well -presented

Slightly more challenging than the sister course and well worth a visit.

Fast, sloping greens
Some fabulous hole son this course but the green were too severe. Wicked slopes and very fast. You couldn’t stop the ball on the greens even with a good shot on.

Ungepflegter Platz
Ungepflegter Platz, Deutlich schlechter als vor 2 Jahren. Für den Zustand nicht gerechtfertigte Greenfee-Preise.

Ich werde diesen Platz nicht mehr spielen

Andy from Canada

Worst course so far
A 5 hour 15 minute round with no rangers in sight. Awful! To add to that misery all the on course washrooms were locked, so not a very friendly course for ladies. Will not be back.

Average, bit pricey for an average course
Bit dry & boney!

Superb condition, great greens and fairways.

Play was slow on the day though but that is similar with all courses at that time of year.

Alamos Course
Very friendly and helpful staff. Course was a little rough around the edges. Not much help in terms of distances when on fairways. Very acceptable greens in good condition. The pathways for the buggy’s were a little dangerous in some areas due to unfinished surfacing. All in all a very enjoyable days golf.
Lena Bohman from Sweden
on Wed, 13th Oct 2021
Too slow!
I agree-a marsall is necessary! Very,very slow today! We had to wait at least 10 min on each tee! After 14 holes we gave up, so far we had played for 4 hours and 20 minutes.

The condition is not good: very bumpy roads, fairways and greens could be better.

Jenneke from Netherlands

Where is the Marshall ….
The course needs a Marshall…. Slow play by Britts with hangover. Shame because course is nice and well kept.

Alamos not at its best
The course was in poor condition and I found the buggy paths a problem. I have a knee injury which means I need a buggy and with the “entrance “ to the fairway the best part of 200m from the . This meant I had to walk some considerable distance on each hole. I admit I didn’t ask if I could have a blue flag ( I have had this previously at Boavista) which would have allowed me more access to the fairway.

I have played Alamos before and the set up was different and the course was in much better condition- not sure I would go back

Stephanie from Portugal

Challenging for a beginner like me
Quite a tricky course for me being an inconsistent golfer but I would go again as it was very enjoyable and the scenery is stunning. Very well maintained fairways and greens.

Wide fairways and nice views on the landscape
we played the course last year in February

I have to say the greenkeeper did an excellent job in the meantime

outstanding price value

will be a challenge if it get warmer

Very good course , some hole very difficult and require a good technic , the landscape is wonderfull, long fairway as well, i have spent a good time. Probably one of the best golf course in the area

Midday round.
Great value round. Big greens and very smooth. One or two holes need more water but it’s been very dry.

Short, tricky and very good but difficult greens
Short but tricky golf course in very good shape apart from tees. The greens are in very good condition but extremely difficult. The rest of the area could be in little better shape.

Enjoyed playing the course it getting better as the years go by. Greens in great condition whether that's got something to do with Margodo and Alamos hosting some pro comp. However I was pleasantly surprised

87.50 for a course that’s v average and in poor nick!

Greens have an issue of some kind.

Tees brought very forward...... holding up play even more as one waits for some par 4s greens!

Course generally in poor nick/ v dusty turf.

Keith from United Kingdom
on Fri, 11th Oct 2019
Don’t bother.....
Despite teeing off on time, it took 3.5 hours to play just 12 holes and it completely ruined the game and we walked off. Far too many groups playing. The groups in front of us were playing Texas scramble which should be quick but they were holding us and others up on every hole. The marshal said he would sort it out but nothing improved.

We complained to reception but they wasn’t interested.

Bigelow Group Review
Obviously a well designed course, visually pleasing and challenging, but was in poor repair the day we played it. Dry in many places, several greens had patchwork of new turf that had not been rolled correctly. We were especially disappointed that no one mentioned the toilets on the back nine were out of order - with no alternative provided - not good for the ladies in our group.

A nice course with some interesting holes. They had suffered with a lack of rain this summer which meant that some of the fairways were a little brown, which didn’t affect the golf and the course gave us a free drink due to this which was a nice touch! A good course with plenty of character.
Freddie from Ireland
on Tue, 17th Sep 2019
Played 13 Sept. terrible condition. No grass anywhere but for a few greens. Stay away from it. Treated poorly by staff as a EuropeanTour event on. We paid too much to be treated that way.

The first 9 is more interesting, than the back. Fairways and some greens have been heat and are a little burnt. The golf team prepare the Morgado golf course for the Portugal Open in mid September, it could be explain the lack of maintenance.

Nice course in the mountains of Portimao, we played Los Álamos and one of us had a hole in one. What a joy. Not every hole is very difficult, the last weeks it was day so the course was also hard and dry, The greens were well maintained.

The course looked well, but includes ”ghost' houses around - maybe old development project w/o access. We were not able to play due children safety, was dissapointed because it happened to us first time...

Amazing Alamos
Amazing peaceful course set in the hills. Beautiful scenery. Sara on reception was really welcoming as the was the first time I have played here, she gave us some useful tips on where to go etc.. greens conditions were excellent considering the lack of rain in the area. This course is separate from the 18 hole Morgardo which uses the same clubhouses facilities. Overall one of my favourite courses in the algarve. Will play here again.

Alamos a Hilly Course
Very hilly course. Not good for walking. Could be in better condition. Friendly staff.
