Golf in Albufeira

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.

Salgados by Ricky from United Kingdom
Good value
Good value green fees with buggies included, very nice clubhouse and easy free flowing course. A lot of water but don't let that put you off as its only a one shot drop from a water hazard and not 2!lol Nice predictable greens, nothing too difficult. Only issue we found was no driving range and lady on the pro shop desk couldn't have been more disinterested in serving customers and utterly miserable.
Pine Cliffs by Martin from Portugal
Good holiday resort course.
Played 18 holes which was ok as it allowed use to get a feel for the layout. The course was in very good condition in comparison to other mor expensive courses in the area. The greens are small which is to be expected for a course that only plays just over 4000 metres and we’re in excellent condition. My only negative was the signature hole 6th. 197mts from the back tees but you couldn’t see the green and only the top of the flag. It would be better if if the shrubbery was remove to allow for a full view which would then make a real feature.
Pine Cliffs by Stuart from United Kingdom

Balaia by Stuart from United Kingdom
Great tight course
Lovely tight little course.
All par 3 holes but don't let that fool you , the tree placement makes for some great challenges.
Salgados by Stuart from United Kingdom
Outstanding course
Had a few games and loved every hole.
Beautiful course and well layed out, no issues with finding the next tee box!
Excellent facilities and very friendly staff.
Great chipping and putting.g green but the driving net area is a fantastic size and helps get ride of the 1st tee slice!
Slow players will definitely be an issue though as I asked to play through a 3 ball who refused twice, causing a long bottleneck behind .
