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 Thomas from Portugal
In the Dunes..
The name Salgados Dunes is correct, some spectacular views. The Course was in perfect condition and is playable for Players of all handicaps. We had a package of Greenfee, cart and clubs for a very reasonable price. Staff was friendly and helpful. Come, play and see for yourself!
Pine Cliffs by Andrew from Portugal
Pine Cliff Folly
I have to start by saying I was a little sceptical about playing a nine hole course ....twice......but having played 9 my scepticism was misplaced. This is a great course. Beautifully laid out. Well designed holes in a beautiful cliff edge setting.
Compact so no traipsing miles between holes.
All in a great days golf. A big thx to Algarvegolf for their help with booking

Pine Cliffs by Kevin from United Kingdom
Nice course
Very nice course and friendly staff, really enjoyed the day
Balaia by Derek from United Kingdom
Good second half
Had a very enjoyable round at Balaia. Teamed up with 3 Swedish guys at the second hole and thoroughly enjoyed my day. The course was in good condition and looked lovely. Some challenging holes where par was unlikely but I had one birdie and a number of pars. There was also a few fives! Would recommend for any reasonable golfer.
