Three old gits on a golfing week in the Algarve
Our favourite course in the Western Algarve.

It's a challenge for gifted players and fair for the not so gifted.

A little damage from wild boars

Green were a little inconsistent

There is no putting area in the Boavista Academy.

best eyechachter of this region
really boavista. Spectacular views, up and down holes, fast and partly strong undulated greens. A challenge for everyone who like to enjoy the game and the environment.

Extremely hilly and challenging course.
Extremely challenging course. Very hilly. Maintenance not up to the best courses, including greens. Bunkers almost no sand.

Played Boavista today.Greens are very poor.Had played Palmares,Morgado and Alamos the previous 3 days and the greens were immaculate.So disappointing ,in particular because Boavista was the most expensive-really disappointed.Best thing was the lunch in the clubhouse.

Fun course to play and fairly good condition. The greens need some work.

Disappointing day at BoaVista.
The course was in poor shape with a number of areas where wild boar had been digging.

The weather was bad and the rain was so heavy that both the 4th green and 5 tee box were flooded.We called the clubhouse from the 5 th tee and suggested that we return to the clubhouse as conditions were dangerous and at that time the course was unplayable.A marshall was sent to talk to us at the 5 th tee but told us there was nothing he could do .We again called the office and suggested we finish and be furnished with a voucher to play another day.Unfortunately we were told that this was not possible and that the course was playable.

We took shelter for 30 minutes in the on course toilets and then played on despite the poor conditions.

We eventually managed 16 holes and retired soaked to the skin and very disappointed with the attitude of the course management.

Needless to add ,we will not be back.

Worth playing
Well organised and in good condition. Although busy, the groups didn’t create any problems like the other courses. We will return.

Boavista October 19
Great views with a variety of holes. Suited to all handicaps. Par 3, 6th a memorable hole.

Friendly ,organised welcome.

Definitely worth a visit.

Still good
Having played here a couple of times before it’s still a good course, although the greens were not in as good a condition as they have been in the past

Worth paying
An excellent course with some really good holes with lots of character. There are dog legs, holes with large ravines to cross and holes where you cannot just boom the driver off the tee. A good test of golf on a well maintained course. Definitely worth playing and good value for money.

Return to Boavista not played since 2014
Played on 3 Sept enjoyed my round,

Well worth the drive down to Lagos (35 minutes from Carverio)

Staff always helpful,Course in good condition.

Down side is construction work next to course but not to much of a problem

Good course, reasonably priced. GPS golf buggies a bit annoying and the food is the clubhouse is poor.

Good course for golfing in Lagos
Generally the course is in good condition and staff is nice. I had a couple of issues with them, which I'm still trying to resolve.

Great holiday golf
Lovely holiday golf course. In very good condition with a some signs of wear & tear on a few greens. Playable for most golfers. Only a couple of scary tee shots for higher handicaps. Buggies have good gps screens.

All staff very friendly. Excellent club sandwich.

I played to my 11 handicap with rented clubs so very happy.

Only slight disappointment was no water or tees provided with buggy- cut backs I suppose. Price a little high for hot summer golf.

Overall definitely highly recommend.

Friendly staff, but the course was in poor condition. Fairways patchy but greens on the front nine were very poor. Wouldn’t go back. Also, we were playing behind a medal and 4 1/2 hours for the round was tooooo long!

Shocking Condition
Probably the worst course I have played in Spain or Portugal in the last 10 years. I cant believe they advertise a game for €100 . Every member of the party came of the course extremely unhappy with its condition. First the bunkers were unplayable and unkept, they were like concrete with lumps of stone in them. The greens were shocking and scabby, the buggies had that thing on them which stops you going too far on fairways etc. but on two occasions the buggy wouldnt move at all and we had to push it.

We had a refreshments buggy come round which we always take advantage of. The guy on this was one of the most miserable people you could imagine. When getting back to clubhouse the food service was slow and the beer was off. We complained about the beer and everyone that tried it said smelt and tasted really bad...again we were ignored only to be told ..its fine. The group are very seasoned golfers and travellers and not one of them had any good words to say about the course or the club..

Good greens
Friendly staff. Buggies with GPS.

Played in windy conditions but the course was fair and greens were in very good shape. Played here twice. Would not object to go for a 3rd round.

The course was very enjoyable yet challenging course but loved every hole the only down side was when I checked in I got told there will be a cart going round the course to offer drinks yet this did not happen.

Beautiful course, well maintained and very busy. Nice staff, the only thing is that the first 5 holes are between the houses, especially hole 6 is a challenge.
Paul from United Kingdom

Nice but could be better.
Nice layout, most holes allow the club golfer to be erratic and not too penalized. Greens need attention, and the bunkers are terrible - just a dusting of sand over a hard pan. Like playing off a path.

Great course for an average player. Weather perfect , low wind and several different slopes and way to find the green. The greens are trick and every hole is a particular reading. Recommend

Have played here many times and although there are a number of blind holes, the course is in good condition and the clubhouse is really nice.

The downside though is slow play and the lack of marshals speeding things up. Our 4 ball round was 5hr 20 mins which is crazy!!!

Boavista bonanza
Course was immaculately presented and the staff were a joy to be looked after by. Round only took 4 hours which is pretty good in my experience of Algarve courses! My son getting an ace on the 4th the obvious highlight but so many great holes.

Not for anyone with a disability
I used to like Boa Vista but sadly I think it is no longer on my play list because it is becoming a mediocre course in the middle of an housing estate. Secondly, the buggies are not user friendly as they just stop if you Stray just an inch past where you should not go. Anyone who has limited mobility but can play a good game of golf is severely disadvantaged. No one wants to go too close to any green but being kept so far back is unacceptable. Great shame
Tony Clements from United Kingdom

6 of us played this course and we all loved it, the course was in great condition. The weather was great and the views of the surrounding area superb. Would definitely recommend to any players visiting the area.

Boa Vista
Lovely course that I have played a lot of times and have previously really enjoyed, however this year on our second round we were put under undue stress to catch up with the group in front of us that started 20 minutes before we did and they were a three ball!!!! I really feel that this detracted from my enjoyment of the course and round. The whole situation could have been avoided if the starter had been on his game and let myself and friend go off as a two ball and that not wait for the next two ball which where a further ten minutes behind us. and make us into a four ball that had no chance of catching up or keeping pace with the group in front. I will go back and play on the Algarve again but may give Boa Vista a miss.

An interesting course, the GPS buggy was good. Unfortunately pace of play was slow and it was an unusually cold day, we were held up from the 13th and several players behind us gave up.

poor condition throughout
I can't fault the welcome or the staff but the tees are abysmal, the fairways average and the greens are also no better than average. And it's busy with members who seem unconcerned with golf etiquette .Compared to vale do lobo i am afraid it's a poor course. I won't be back.

A huge letdown.
I have never experienced such an unfriendly place to play golf.

Everything (from driving range to the course itself) was the least appealing of all the courses we played in Algarve.

I will definitely not recommend playing at Boavista.

A welcome return to this pleasant course
Enjoyed a good game in bright but cold conditions on this course. The course is in good condition having had an overnight shower the evening before.

The building work that is going on around various parts are a bit noisy but that is progress!

A return visit is a must.

Schöner Platz
Der Platz ist momentan nicht in bestem Zustand.

Grüns nicht gut. Liegt aber gerade an den Problemen mit der Bewässerung laut einem Mitglied das mit uns gespielt hat. Trotz allem sehr abwechslungsreich und spannend.
