Our rates are for two rounds on the 9 hole Balaia Golf Course. Opened in April 2001 this small and attractive golf course offers the opportunity to improve your iron shots and your short game. It carries the title of Executive Course which in its name implies the quality of its layout and subtle challenges. Located at the back of the Balaia Village Holiday Complex it presents from the first tee a charming view of most of the course with the ribbon of blue sea as its background. A course to test the ability of a golfer to control shot length and direction.

Very short par 3 9 hole course, nicely maintained and a good workout for your short game but at £45 for 18 holes with hire clubs and 3 balls costing £10 not exactly value for money.

The course is amazing! A real test of mid iron, short iron, wedges, chipping, putting. Play here enough and your skill can only improve.
The greens matched the quality of the more famous courses in the Algarve where you pay 70 euros or more (maybe better). Manicured fairways and bunkers that would not be out of place on any local championship course. This place is looked after and who ever is in charge, knows what there doing. A real pleasure to play.
My only negative is there is no 9 hole pricing option and 18 holes at around 30 euros may put some people off for a par 3 course, when 18 holes twilight is available at full length courses for a similar price. I do feel however the quality of the course you are getting pretty much matches the asking price.
Here is a summary of the holes, distances from the back tees but second tee option available.
The 1st hole eases you in, around 70 yards down hill. Good chance of a 3 if you find the putting surface.
2nd hole was playing 170 yards with the miss being left, trees on the right. I didnt think there would be any holes this long! Mid or long iron or even a wood. A 3 here and you've done amazingily well.
The 3rd hole is around 70 yards up hill, hows your wedge distance control?
Cross the road onto a seperate bit of land for the next 2 holes. The 4th was playing 180 yards into wind! This is no pitch and putt. OB left and bunker greenside right. Hardest hole on course along side the 2nd.
The 5th takes you back running along side the 4th, around 110 yards. OB left, the miss is right. Play to the left of the green and the ball feeds down into the centre of the green.
Back over the road and a good chance of par on the 6th. A wedge down hill but there is trouble long.
7 was playing 155 and you can only just see the top of the flag, great looking hole. The miss is left, lots of room. Anything right of the green will kick further right and feed into a hazard and likely be lost.
The 8th is slightly up hill playing 140 yards. There is a large tree/shrub feature short right of the green, likely lost ball or unplayable. The miss is long and left.
The closing hole is around 100 yards down hill to a mackenzie green, pin position was at the back of green on top tier. OB long.
