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.

Boavista by Hannes Loekkoes from Austria
Über Schluchten muß man schießen
Sehr hügeliger, interessanter Kurs. Driving Range zum vergessen.
Palmares by Klaus-Dieter from Germany
Spectacular views
27 hole course. We played each combination. Preference for ALVOR/LAGOS because PRAIA is more like a beach course. Not too hilly but overall attractive to play. Good maintenance. Limited Club House facility, extension under construction.
