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 26 May
Beautiful course, great layout. very friendly staff. Plenty of water to challenge you with tee shots and approach shots.
We hired clubs and they was ok, (Nike clubs).
Salgados by Daniel from Portugal
Great round of golf in very strong winds
Course is in great shape. It played quickly. The greens were very good shape and rolled smoothly. Unfortunately it was very windy today but still a good day. It's a flat course that is very forgiving. The front 9 has some very long holes.
Pine Cliffs by Ruud from Netherlands
Mooie baan
Goed onderhouden en aantrekkelijke baan. Boeken via AGC aan te raden, scheelt op 9 holes bijna € 30,- ! Bijzonder maar waar.
Salgados by Stephen Lyndon from United Kingdom
Water, water, water!!!!!!
Played in February after there had been a large amount of rain over night which made conditions soft. Some interesting holes that really required you to think your way around to avoid the water. The course was very flat.
Pine Cliffs by Aron from Portugal
Perfect course
Perfect day at Pine Cliffs. Easy course, crowded but no problem.
