Accuracy Over Distance On This Cracking Course
Accuracy over distance is the key. Very nice course, thoroughly enjoyed the challenge although all the water cost me a couple of balls! Highly recommend

Nice course beat handicap
Fantastic course green keepers are amazing I gave one star less because it’s very expensive and when renting clubs you’ve to buy balls even tees but course is superb

Slow play or overbooking ?
Course itself is ok but our round was ruined by slow play / overbooking . Took us 4 and a half hours to play 16 holes before we walked off as we had plans at night. Hire clubs weren’t great either . One set had a left handed putter and some of the grips were ripped or loose.

Get tee off before 4pm if want full round
First the positive - the course was in fantastic condition, as other reviews state lots of water and some tricky shots where local knowledge would be a great advantage, the long 6th was very tight and had unseen danger, but still a joy to play. The clubhouse and facilities were excellent. The location is great, just a short distance from Albufeira.

Now the negative, we booked 18 holes and after booking were informed in the confirmation that due to the time (16:40 tee off) we 'may not complete the full round due to time of sunset'. When we arrived (thankfully very early) the staff informed us that you only get 9 holes if tee off after 16:00, this was very different to 'may not'. After some discussion with the staff we agreed that we would play as many as possible - we managed to tee off at 16:20, had two games in front let us play through, had no one in front of us for the back nine, and a buggy, so managed the full 18 - but it was tight. If we had gone out at the scheduled time, or any of the games had not let us through then we would have managed 12 holes top - because of this I felt selling the package as 18 holes was not correct. As per other reviews also thought that the rental clubs were dated, I couldn't use my driver due to damage, but because of the time constraint didn't attempt to change before the round - as there were two of us we just shared that club.

5 stars for the golf, lower rating due to the other stuff

Nice compact course
Water, water everywhere even in some of the bunkers but a nice course, good facilities, driving net, chipping area and putting green, friendly staff and well looked after.

Just how many people can you fit on a golf course
Just how many people can you fit on a golf course. Ask Salgardos.

Nice course with reasonable greeens (early May 22). Water all round to give your golf balls a cushioned landing.

Nice clubhouse with a freaky big net to practice before a round.

All the good is offset by waiting for the group in front while feeling guilty for the group behind.

Went out at 2pm and first 9 holes took 2 and a half hours.

Thankfully the course got quieter later in the day and it was only 2 and a bit hours fir the second nine.

1st time golf
I play golf in the UK and came away to Portugal with 3 friends that wanted to experience playing golf abroad .As these guys were not seasoned golfers I opted for what I felt would be a good course for them to play ,I was not wrong ,the course was great ,everybody had a great time .

Walkable and well maintained
Busy course that has a strict 2 hour per 9 hole policy. The course is well maintained and the staff is polite. Challenging but if you keep your ball in play, you can have birdie opportunities. Lots of water in play. Walkable and flat the course has a Florida feel. Greens could be faster. Overall, a fun experience to spend four hours.

Played this may 2022 when there was a large society booked and was therefore paired up with 2 others to make a 4 ball and feared how long it would take. Initial few holes were slow but it sped up quite quickly and we completed a 4 ball in 4 hours 15. The fairways seemed a little overplayed but the greens were very good condition and whilst a couple of holes only require irons of tees, there are plenty of long holes, especially the back nine. Lots of water and lots of shouts of 'fore' as it is quite enclosed and flat and a stroke saver would have helped, but there are some pretty decent holes and it exceeded my initial expectations. As a comparison, probably better than laguna but not quite as good as millennium but at 70 euros if you can get a deal, worth a go.

Enjoyed the round
Lovely course in good condition. Quite short but never seemed easy with strategically positioned trees. Good fun.

Course in great condition. Greens very true. Overall very good experience. However rental clubs are a little dated. Nike Vapor fly 2015. But useable and still a great day.

Too many allowed. No booking slots kept
I payed for 18 holes. I booked for 11am but when I got there I was told I could go on this was around 10am it was already busy but was able to play without hold ups. However as I came to go my 2nd 9 holes there were 3 groups waiting. I had a drink and waited. However this did not help as a group of 12 lads then decided to play and were only there for a laugh. I decided to join the line for my next 9 holes however after a 30 mins waiting in line and then again on 2nd hole 4 groups before me I decided to call it a day.

I played o holes having paid for 18. The rules are 12 mins between groups this was obviously not under control as it seems you just turned up and played. No control whatsoever in how busy and the booking slots just seem to be scrapped. Not happy with my day at golf ☹️

As par 3’s go a very tricky little course. Had just undergone some maintenance so greens were very sandy. A little bit pricey for what it is but overall a really enjoyable 18 holes (went round twice) and ideal for beginners like my wife who played. Still testing on the short game for more experienced golfers.

Great course
A wonderful course on the coast that always provides the last day’s rounds for my friend and me. There is plenty of water so challenging for people playing wayward shots, and has been very expensive for both of us on balls. Nevertheless we would not fail to make a visit here every year we come

Recent Portugal trip to Salgados golf club
The Salgados course was in good condition, the weather was excellent with breeze coming off the sea for the back 9

All in all a great day with friends, no pressure from the course or other golfers, definitely recommend the course with some challenging holes and a fair few water hazards 👍👍

Bale is course April 2022
This is a short course, par 27 for 9 holes. Sounds a bit tame for some folks but you need to be really accurate or you will loose a ball easily in water or thick vegetation. So its a fun course and god value that will still test you. Good clubhouse for food and drink. Friendly and helpful staff. Greens in v good order considering the treatment they get. So a quick cheap and fun course. Well located and easy to find.

Not Great
Course was very busy and in poor condition. Fairways were terrible. The club house was very uninviting and lacked any atmosphere.

Great value for money
Had a great day, meet some really nice people, facilities were great, all for €50 that’s inc club hire as well, you can play as many holes as you like use all the facilities I.e. chipping areas putting green and

Driving range basically home in your short game, well recommended 👍🏻

Hidden Resort pearl
Compact nine hole course (Par 32) in top condition (fairways & Greens) with breathtaking Canyon/Seaside view after Tee 6. Perfect to proof how precise is your golf and if you can shape off the tee straight shots (Tee 1) or draw curves with your driver/woods (Tee 3, 5, 7). Absolutely worth playing two rounds (or more ,-)
Manuel from Portugal

Confusing layout

But its cheap

Didnt expect that your non playing company will be charged the same green fee, it was not explained when i booked online.

Confusing rules: some are allowed to play whole day, some are not.

Worth for the price
Well, not the best place at the Algarve but for the price it was worth playing. The driving range ist strange as you have to use your own balls and hit into a net.

No fun at all…
Bland course that does not provide a great experience. All the flags had blown over when we went as the first ball of the day. Completely destroyed the feeling and the course feels like one of the courses to avoid playing.

No droning range only a net, long wait at desk (the secretary was at the bar and came without hurry).

The course is nice but nothing special

Nice course, but not too challenging. play was slow due to certain pairings having photo sessions on the fairway in front of us. Service was very good and price reasonable.

Flatest of the Algarve courses
One of the flatest Algarve course with likely the most water hazards. Be prepared to hit it straight or bring extra balls. Easy to walk course

A hidden gem to get into the swing
Excellent short course which was very enjoyable.

Enjoyed playing the nine holes the second time as I then knew where I was going.

The par 3 over the cliff face is excellent and the tress guarding the 8th green make it a real challenge .

Might even play it again before returning home

Satisfying par 3 golf.
A 9 hole par 3 course with some very interesting/challenging holes. 9 holes can be played in an hour if not busy. Can take 90 mins if busy, but very enjoyable today.
