The charming old centre of Albufeira has always been a very popular destination for tourists to the Algarve. Albufeira was once a thriving seaport and had its own castle that was unfortunately destroyed in the earthquake of 1755.

The town of Albufeira economic situation immensely improved with the advent of tourism to the Algarve and the construction of Faro Airport in the 1960s. For night entertainment in Albufeira there is a plentiful choice of bars, restaurants and clubs. To the east of Albufeira there is a road known as the 'Strip' lined with bars and places to eat. It has built an internationally reputation for its nightlife. Whilst on the west side of the town is the Boat Marina which provides a more sophisticated atmosphere with its many yachts and quayside bars and restaurants.

On the west side of Albufeira is the 18-hole Salgados Golf Course which is a 'Links' style of course and which includes many water hazards. There are also two well kept popular 9-hole courses on the east side of the town, the Pine Cliffs Golf Course and the Balaia Golf Course.

Within comfortable driving distance are holiday two destinations for the entertainment of the whole family. The Zoomarine' park has dolphins, animals and various other attractions. The other is the water park 'Aqualand Algarve' which is open during the summer season.

Great course
Fantastic course, not the longest. You need to plot your way round and often the stiff breeze will play a factor and make you think about your club selection. Well worth playing.

Nice challenging course
Great day at a great course , challenging and still all do able .. venue is good , Pity it closed at 13;00 but that was out of control of the golf club ... All is wide and corona proof
