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.

Santo Antonio by Arie from Portugal
Een parel in het westen
Fantastisch mooie en zeer uitdagende baan, vooral met windkracht 5 een enorme tester, geweldig goede teeboxen, fairways top, greens uitstekendBuggy is een must en tevens het enige negatieve wat er valt te melden, de paren zijn namelijk smal, stijl en soms best wel gladMaar, dit is zeker niet onze laatste keer dat wij er spelen
Palmares by jordan from Portugal
Golf in Algarve? Make it Palmares!
Absolutely stunning, magnificent, greatest golf course in the world. Played the Lagos & Praia courses - shot a beautiful 96 with an 18 handicap because I saw a gigantic bunny rabbit and was mesmerized by the sound of the waves and train rolling through the foggy morning. I recommend getting out as early as possible (with sunglasses).
Palmares by Norman from Portugal

Palmares by Mario from Switzerland
Super golf, tout était parfait, sauf que nous n'avons pas eu de chance ce jour là, forte pluie, mais nous avons terminé le parcours.
Santo Antonio by Walter Schärer from Switzerland
Great course in Western Algarve
Nice course, but not as well maintained as other courses nearby. When Bellavista Golf is fully booked, try Santo Antonio Parque de Floresta.
