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 James Symons from United Kingdom
Great Course, 3 x 9 holes to play!

Did take 4 hour 50 to play 18 unfortunately due to slow play. Okay
Palmares by Will Tunnacliffe from United Kingdom
Early morning game at Palmares today playing holes 10-27. I would say that the layout and views on holes 10-18 were about as good as it gets! Absolutely stunning. The 19th-27th was average overall I’d say with a few good holes and a few really poor ones. This 9 was also pretty burnt out and after the first couple didn’t have much scenery really. Overall quality of the greens wasn’t great to be honest but tees and bunkers were excellent. Having not played the 1-9 holes it’s hard to say for certain but I’d imagine playing this course as 1-18 would be want u want to try and do as if they’re anything like holes 10-18 then despite the greens being a bit ropey I’d have given it 5* regardless
Boavista by Frans from Portugal

Well maintained, beautifull views of Lagos & sea, challenging, you’ll get enough chances of playing well. Buggy with gps. €67 for playing 18 with buggy.
