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.

Pine Cliffs by Catherine from Portugal
Pine Cliffs : à ne pas manquer pour sa falaise.
Beau parcours 9 trous. Challenging : court, étroit, valloné, des greens protégés par de nombreux bunkers. La falaise est magnifique !
Fairways et greens un peu secs et en souffrance.
Pine Cliffs by Michael Healey from United Kingdom
Lovely condition
Lovely course in fabulous condition. This is the 4th time I have played it now. It’s only 9 holes so even going round twice for the full 18 it is quite short (c4,400m) but this means you can get around in 3.5 hours or so rather than the 4.5 to 5 hours that it can take on some of the longer courses. Some amazing views of the sea/beach as it is situated right in the cliff top. The club house and pro shop with the golf academy/driving range is very well set up. Already looking forward to returning again in the future.
Pine Cliffs by Sonia from Switzerland
Tolle Aussicht aufs Meer
Kurze aber sehr abwechslungsreiche Bahnen; es lohnt sich, diesen 9-Loch Platz 2x zu spielen.
Pine Cliffs by Edward from United Kingdom
Gem
Lovely little course with a brilliant academy set up and well kept. Rented clubs are ok for high handicapper’s like myself.
Salgados by George from Portugal
Very good, greens could be better
Beautiful course, very good fairways. Challenging but fun, with really good clubs rental. Only issue was the greens were all top layered with sand, which wasn’t ideal.
