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 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.

Very interesting Golf Course. Holes are sloping and your have a view on the see and the cliffs of Lagos. Greens and fairways are of good quality. Some transitions between two holes are a little bit long.
Santo Antonio by Richard from United Kingdom
Right and tough but well worth a visit.
Tough, tight, and hilly but a great challenge and well worth a visit. Always in good condition and even the brown parts of the course have good grass coverage. You will need to play sensible golf and keep the driver at home, as it isn’t overly long but it does require accurate tee shots. If the wind is blowing - good luck, it can put 4 clubs (up or down) on any shot if you have the wind behind or into your face. Getting accurate distance is tough.
