Golf in Lagos

LAGOS, The historic and attractive town of Lagos has always been a very popular destination for tourists to the Algarve. It was from Lagos harbour that Vasco da Gama sailed in 1499 on his historic and epic voyage of discovery. As a visitor drives into the town the Boat Marina harbour presents a lovely picture. Further in the strong battlements present a picture of the importance it has played in history. Amongst the ancient buildings is Europe's oldest standing slave market.

At night the crowds spill over into the many narrow streets creating a lively and happy atmosphere with a plentiful choice of bars and restaurants.

In the vicinity of Lagos are three excellent golf courses. The 27-hole Palmares Golf Course lies to the east overlooking the Bay of Lagos. The 18-hole Boavista Golf Course lies on the west and is within minutes drive from the town. Further to the north is the 18-hole Espiche Golf Course which is the newest addition to the golfing scene in the Algarve.

SAGRES, The small town of Sagres is located next to the most south-western point of Europe named Cape St. Vincent. The high vertical cliffs in Sagres are dramatic to view as they are pounded by the Atlantic Ocean. It was here in the 15th century that the famous Prince Henry the Navigator built his school devoted to navigation and exploration. The local restaurants are renowned for serving a variety of fresh fish and shellfish.

VILA DO BISPO, Since 1898 the town of Vila do Bispo was granted as the admistration town of the area. However, its existance is first recorded as a village in the 14th century but humans were occupiing the area back in the mist of time.

Approximately halfway on the road between the town of Lagos and Sagres is the small village of Budens. It is here that golfers will find the 18-hole Santo Antonio Golf Course.

Recent Lagos Course Reviews

Santo Antonio by colin from Portugal
Good course, great condition
Thought the course was in excellent condition both fairways and greens

Very demanding today with 2-3 club wind through the valleys. In fact it was wind against on 13 out of 18 holes

Quite challenging if you walk but did love the way each hole changed

Would definitely play again and at a cost of 45 euros it’s a bargain
Palmares by Alan from Canada

Palmares by Felix from United States
Sehr schöner Platz
Der Platz ist wunderschön.

Die Pflege des Platzes war sehr gut.
Löcher anspruchsvoll aber sehr gut Spielbälle auch für mittleres Hcp.
Jederzeit gerne wieder(Hcp9.0)
Boavista by Frans from Netherlands
Boavista spacious and boa!
The playa and alvor were played. Playa gives a links course feeling. Most holes near by the ocean. Fairways very short and dry. Greens ok.
Alvor more inland and hilly. Fairways more grass and good greens. Nice lay out in the hills. Kind starters and nice overlooking clubhouse.
