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.

Palmares by Callum from United Kingdom
Loved it !
My favourite course of the holiday i even booked another 18 for the following day! Would recommend doing all 27 holes so you don’t miss out
Espiche Golf by Ryan from Malaysia
My favourite golf course in the Algarve
After playing vale da pinta and don pedro Victoria, this is by far a better course than both of those. Extremely good value for money and excellent staff and service. Playing from the tips with the afternoon wind made it an extremely tough challenge. You better be able to hit a straight ball off the tee and know how to control your ball. The most scenic and amazing greens I have seen ...greens bigger than the width of the fairways. Definitely one to play on the Algarve swing and play off the tips for a good challenge. Greens very tricky
Santo Antonio by Alan from Portugal
Nice but challenging
A tough course with lots of blind shots. Most fairways are sloping one way or the other. Staff very nice.
If you are looking for an easy game of golf then this is not for you.
A buggy is essential.
Value for money excellent.
Palmares by Alex Shapcott from Canada
Great golf course with gorgeous views
Beautiful golf course just minutes away from the beautiful beaches in Lagos, the views are great, the course was in immaculate condition. Greens were fast and undulated. Super fun.
I rented clubs and was given TaylorMade M2 driver to putter, they were great.
I also made this booking at 5pm the day before for 9 am the next day and Algarve golf really takes care of you, they call you back or email you within minutes of any request.
