Super sister course of Morgado, well presented when we played on 3rd April, fast greens and well presented course. Hardly anyone on the course when we played so speed of play was great

Course in good condition and strong winds made play challenging. Greens very difficult and even the best of approach shots can be penalised.

Golf service all a long the course.toilettes on the courses.bar service as Well.for the course it was Nice à bit dry fairway and very fast greens surrounded by bankers fairly technic. Long holes and the distance between the starters are long.i recommend a buggy

Below the average
Missing clubhouse (shared with Morgado course, but too far from holes 1 and 18). Only one functional toilet on the playground, the rest was closed. Long gradients with rocky surface, unsuitable for walking players. The layout of the course does not allow playing nine holes only.

Alamos golf is challenging
Very friendly staff. Course conditions not great. Greens were fun generally the course is very challenging. Directions to course are none existent. Our GPS took us on a terrible dirt road.

Very slow play.
Course Ok but course management very poor, played 3 holes after over one hour. A round of golf should not be over 5 hours.

Alamos. A course for everyone
Probably one of the easiest golf courses on the Algarve but great fun. Some interesting holes which make you think about your tee shot and approach.

Good all round course
Lovely course, friendly and helpful staff. Was challenging in places but everyone loved this. Would highly recommend for medium to high handicap players.

Disappointing condition of a good course.
I have always been a fan of both Morgado and Alamos courses particularly the back nine on the former and the front nine on the latter. However I was disappointed on this visit in the condition of the course. The greens were slow and there was little definition between fairway and rough. Of greater concern was the amount of long coarse grass on the approaches and surrounds to the greens which made it look scruffy. I didn't understand why these areas hadn't been treated with a product like Rescue to kill off the invasive species. I am sure it just needs some care and attention to bring it back to normal.

Really nice course, would definitely recommend hiring a buggy as its a long course to walk!

Superb round at Alamos!
Alamos is a superb course with plenty of challenging and fair holes. The views are really nice and the course was in excellent condition. The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is that the greens were extremely slow. The growth and coverage on them was superb, but they were more like really short fairways. However it didn't detract too much from the day as in most cases you could get aggressive with shots at the flag.

The clubhouse is really nice with a terrace over looking the driving range and some of the holes from the Morgado course. The food and drink was excellent.

Decent value for money, short and tight course with some nice and intersesting holes. Worth playing as part of a golf holiday but not as a main event I would suggest ...

Alamos a nice course
Very good course. A little easy and not that long from yellow but really fun and good.

Good condition but slow play
Course in great condition. Fairly short but means that you have to play for position rather than just smashing it. We were stuck a few groups back of a 40 man society. Very slow play.

Álamos Golf Course
Very pleasant welcome, good hire equipment, well signed and nIce scenery. Greens were slow, bunkers need raked, long distance between holes. All in all nice course.

A very nice course although greens were a little hit and miss. No water to contend with. Well worth a visit.
Robin from United Kingdom

Beautiful views, great clubhouse and bar. Greens very challenging- fast and hilly, a challenging course but still great fun for medium to high handicaps
John from United Kingdom

Interesting course
Great course in lovely countryside in very good condition. Plenty of challenges with lakes and streams to contend with and undulating greens.
on Mon, 21st May 2018
Worth a visit.
Short but very nice course with a good variety of holes that can be challenging. Greens were a good speed and true. Staff friendly and helpful.
Jacques from Portugal

Good setting, work to be done around the green.
Anthony from United Kingdom

Scenic and tricky. Bring a good short game.
Superb scenic course. Quite short but extremely difficult greens. Course very dry. Very tight lies on fairways making approach shots to hard dry greens difficult. Greens very firm but good surface. Enjoyable but tricky in the conditions. Glad to have had a buggy.

no Buggies available though there were enough around !
Michael from Ireland

Very slow round nearly 5h for a 2 ball. Greens are very hard the ball will just fly off them.

Good course,Played off yellow tees it is shorter than other courses.Greens are in great shape .
Andrew from United Kingdom
on Sat, 17th Mar 2018
Disappointed and will choose somewhere else next.
Strange place. The approach is along a long drive and roadway past semi derelict unfinished apartments. Obviously the grand plan has not been fulfilled and whist the golf courses are successful the resort is not. The greens were true and good but the fairways are barren and bare through lack of watering. Tee beds poor. The impression is that costs are being cut. I will probably not return

Lomagolffarin kenttä
Hyvä lomagolffarin kenttä - ei mahdottoman pitkä eikä silti liian ahdistava, avaukset pääasiassa muilla kuin Draiverilla. Pohja kova ja kuivuuden takia aika kovat rullit. Ruohoa ei paljoa ollut. Griinit hyvässä kunnossa.

Enjoyed this course. Not long, but the wind was blowing, and the greens were fast, both of which provided plenty of challenge.

I have used AGC for several years to organise a winter golf trip to the Algarve and found their service to be both very helpful and polite. No slip ups in years.

A jouer sans modération
Trés agréable parcours,vallonné et piégeux dans le bon sens . Parcours à recommander pour ceux qui n'aiment pas les parcours plats,comme beaucoup en Algarve.

Le service du gestionnaire des départs était trés aimable et compétent.

Nicht ganz so schön wie Morgado
Alles gut!

Kommen gerne wieder und werden das nächste Mal sicher bei algarvegolf.net buchen!

Tricky, but very interesting and good course. Not so long, but many elevated greens, and the greens are not easy to handle.
Peter from United Kingdom

Ok course.
Bunkers are poor. Lack of sand and rakes. Holes not cut well.

Nice course reasonable priced

Needs marshalled to stop slow play.
Good condition and by luck we got started early as the two four balls from Ireland on a “boys” trip took over 5 hours and held the whole course up. We were 1hour 45 for front nine and 2hours 15 for back nine. The group behind us had lost 5 holes to us. We were lucky but the people behind must have been furious. Needs marshalled for 160 euros for two.

Tired course
Not very well organised reception vague course not as good as Morgada looked tired
Frank from Ireland
on Mon, 16th Oct 2017
Game was far too slow. Took 5hrs30mins. Course rangers were not as evident as previous game in Morgado course. Would think twice before going back there.
Tony from United Kingdom

Tough but fair
Only one or two holes you have to think about

if you hit too long late in the round the ditches will grab your ball.

A good track to play on.

Very Nice course. But the reception took a long time. We almost mist our tee time
on Fri, 22nd Sep 2017
One of my favourite golf courses in the Algarve, along with Morgado the sister course. Always well presented and with subtle challenges
Joe from Poland

Course great some staff not so great
Course itself excellent we had a great round. Buggy steering collapsed on approach to 18th tee thanks to extremely bad track and attitude of staff almost accusing us of damaging buggy was not appreciated.
on Sat, 16th Sep 2017
Miller/Logan annual golf outing
Greens good condition, but play painfully slow, almost 5 hours to complete round, waiting at every tee, on one par 5 four groups actually in play, one on green, two on fairway and one group on tee.....terrible

Marshaling and course organisation need improvement to improve speed of play

Club house & facilities excellent

To short off yellow tees
To short off yellow tees , ,not given choice 😫 Stroke index was a joke. Great greens .
Stephen from Portugal
on Thu, 14th Sep 2017
This was a first time playing Alamos and what a pleasant surprise, not overly long but made up for that with tough greens, so don't be on the wrong side of the hole. The fairways are very generous and only the widest of shots severely punished but it's the putting were the fun begins, today's pins had been placed by either the Marquis de Sade or Remy Gaillard, so bring your putting A game.
Meunier from Portugal

Une belle expérience
Belle découverte sur ce golf plutôt simple et large.

Un belle entretien, un bon acceuil au club house et une formule GF voiturette practice agréable et avec un très bon rapport qualité prix.

J'aurais aimé y découvrir le Morgado aussi

Karel from Portugal

Great course even in summer
We played mid July and the course was in excellent conditions despite dry weather. Excellent service. driving range included into green fee
on Sun, 16th Jul 2017
Great value ...in Algarve
Played twice this week. Great value for green fee buggy and clubs. Course in good nick. First nine more challenging than second nine. Only negative was distance markers which are not correct in many places. Would play again and looking forward to playing Morgado because staff etc all excellent including the nice touch of cool towels brought out by the staff half way round.

Duncan from Portugal

Great for holiday golf
Really nice well kept course. Great views and very officiant management. Front 9 more challenging and interesting than back 9 but the easier holes give you a chance to resume a score!
Derek from Portugal

2 novices 1st time at Alamos.
Course was in great condition and not too demanding. Rental clubs and cart were better than expected. Staff were helpful and friendly with a good sense of humour. Would definitely visit again.

Great course for holiday golf!
An enjoyable course with some nice views and some challenging holes.

The course was in good condition and the pace of play was very good, we got round in a 4 ball in under 4 hours.

Some of the holes on the back 9 are quite 'gentle' in terms of challenge, but these holes present an opportunity to get some birdies and shoot a good score!

Review of our annual trip to Portugal

Alamos - enjoyable course
My friend & I played Morgado on Tuesday and tried Alamos today. Alamos is a more demanding course with some interesting & enjoyable holes. Buggy definitely recommended as there is some distant between some holes.
Colum from United Kingdom
on Tue, 6th Jun 2017
Quite short front 9 and very short back 9 - but a joy to play - fairways were a delight to play off and greens were very good and very fair. Loved it. Going back tomorrow with a little more local knowledge.

great old guys course
our group of 50 plus golfers found the mougado course to be a very long track which was a good test of modern equipment but not a pleasure.

Alamos however being much shorter was much more to our taste. there is plenty of character and interest and is a very pleasing little layout

Je me suis régalé
Bon parcours ,trés agréable. Je préfère mieux Alamos que Morgado de part ses formes et difficultés trés interessantes .
Steven Browning from United Kingdom

very poor experience indeed
I will not play here again,although everything was very good the course needs some serious work done on it.Fairways in very bad state owing to bad weather and poor upkeep.I imagine the course will come back to life as the weather.Again I pay for buggy but told stay off fairways,only using 90 degree angle to your ball,not much use for a high handicapped player.would look the course over before playing again.
Steven from Portugal
on Fri, 3rd Feb 2017
Buggies and fairways
Told not to use buggies on fairways at Alamos because fairways are sodden,there was nothing wrong with fairways,there were some really bad patches but common sense tells you no to drive over them.Spent more time walking back and forth to play my shots.Would have been better with a trolley or carrying my clubs would not have walked as much.As per normal it comes down to money,chances are you paid in advance so you have paid for something you cannot use intended.Cannot blame booking agency but the courses should be telling agency that buggies are limited to cart paths.

Alamos jan17
Nice course in good and dry weather conditions during low season, is Jan. The course did obviously not have much water a long time. Bit Hilly andere so buggy was handy. But it was nice to play here.
Petra from Portugal

a nice course, but the greens are not good.. may by in the next month...
on Wed, 26th Oct 2016
Loved it
Loved it, great course, undulating fairways and greens, preferred it to its sister course Morgado. Wasn't too busy but a really good challenge, bit out of the way but worth the visit.
Colin from United Kingdom

Alamos - Great holiday golf
Course is short by modern standards but will challenge all handicap categories to 'think your way around' and put the ball on the right part of the undulating greens. The greens had been sanded before our round (hence the loss of a star) which affected the roll of the ball, but did not prevent us from enjoying the experience.
Douglas Russell from United Kingdom
on Tue, 18th Oct 2016
Poor poor poor
The course was in quite a poor condition, it had obviously been raining for a few days so fairways and rough were wet and heavy.

The greens had been tined and a covering of sand on all the greens made putting difficult.

When I booked the tee times well in advance, I had asked for an extra buggy as we wanted to go out in 2, three balls. Only to find on the day that the course had over booked the buggys so no chance of an extra one.

All in all not a happy chap, course in poor condition, no extra buggy and the course had so many none golfers it took forever to play.

I won't be back.

Course okay but the paths for buggies were horrible. Greens left a little bit long and was difficult to judge the pace of them.
Joan from Portugal
on Fri, 2nd Sep 2016
Nice course in good condition. Almost never a flat lie. In combination with rather strong winds we experienced that day, a true challenge. Greens had recently been worked at so they were slow. Tricky undulated those greens.

The 19th. hole is nice location to review your scores.

Andrew from Portugal
on Sat, 13th Aug 2016
A really challenging course set in beautiful countryside. A good test of your range of shots and not just about big hitting.

The course was in great condition and the staff were very friendly and helpful

Morgado and Alamos Jewels in the West Algarve
Morgado and Alamos courses are part of the Morgado do Reguengo complex (hotel and 2 championship golf courses)

Both provide a great test of golf for golfers of all abilities, both courses presented in great condition, play either of these for a great golfing experience in the Algarve

Barry from United States

Open country.
Alamos was a welcome change from some of the other Algarve courses which can feel rather enclosed by villas and development. Not a villa in sight here, it's beautiful open country all around with plenty of wildlife. I spotted flocks of flamingos and storks and even bee-eaters here. Oh and I was there to play golf too! It's excellent condition and the greens are particularly good, all interesting shapes and slopes.

Arriving there is the biggest challenge! Alamos isn't signposted - aim for Morgardo because they share the same clubhouse (we didn't know). On entering the estate you go through a security gate and think you're there. But there is 4.5km over cobbled road, past half built and derelict hotels to negotiate first. The clubhouse was almost empty, all very strange. But It's a very nice course overall, good value and we'll be going back next time.

Peter from Portugal

Good course worth a visit.
This was a very quiet but challenging course. Maybe not to the standard of others in the area but fora bounce game on a well tended and affordable golf course, this proved good holiday golf.

Great experience - staff from reception to the bar and catering both welcoming and extremely professional - course is picturesque as well as challenging - well worth the visit - great value.
