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.

Excellent service, course was fantastic. Would definitely play again 👍⛳️
Balaia by Raymond Peattie from United Kingdom
Good but not grest
A tricky little course that is tricky for even the more experienced golfers in our group.
The course itself was ok but what you'd expect for the price.
The staff were excellent and very friendly.
The biggest down fall was the large groups that were being permitted to play. We had one group of x11 golfers golfing before us on one day despite us being told there should be a maximum of x4 golfers per group. However, the staff gave us a later tee off time with no hassle.
Good all round course if you want a relaxed fun tone with a bunch of mates but would not be suitable for the more serious golfer.
Would I return here? Yes I would and most likely will.
Salgados by Terry from United Kingdom
Salgados Golf Review 12 Handicap.
Outstanding course..... not overly difficult but easy to get out of position and then the course becomes challenging.

Play what you can see and don’t be greedy and you’ll get round the course safely and to your handicap. Take the risks and you can easily shoot under handicap but be warned take the risk and it doesn’t pay off you can easily have high number on your scorecard.

Nice par 3 course
Pine Cliffs by Dominique from Belgium
9 trous très agréables
Chouette 9 trous, avec notamment le 5 le long de la mer et le 6 spectaculaire. Malheureusement beaucoup de monde et temps d'attente parfois fort long...
