Good booking service, but lack of information
Whilst I was very satisfied with the ease of booking and the service during the booking process. Myself and the party of golfers were very disappointed regarding the information given for reservation of buggies. I was told that we needed to reserve buggies with the specific golf courses we were playing.

I was able to reserve buggies on line with Boa Vista Golfe, but Pestana advised that we could only book at the course. So prior to playing Alto Golfe, we visited the club to reserve buggies. Only to be told that this could only be done on the day of playing. We asked if we could reserve buggies at any of the other Pestana course, and was told no. So in order to ensure we could get at least one buggy, we went to Alto golf course early and was told that no buggies were available.

We therefore booked electric trolleys, but one of our party has a damaged hip so wasnโ€™t sure if they would be able to play. Luckily we asked the caddy master if we could possibly have one of the buggies that had just been returned. He told us to check at the club reception, after further discussion they allowed us to take the buggy.

I feel that Algarve golf should have given us prior warning of these issues with reservation of buggies with Pestana, which would have allowed us to book a course that would allow forward reservation of buggies.

Thanks for your feedback. Iโ€™ll bear this in mind for future bookings through yourselves. Thanks John
Thank you very much for your feedback. We did mention that the buggies on Alto can only be hired directly from the cousre when you check in but were unaware that the cousre would run out of buggies on your date of play. Kindly note that the Pestana courses in high season will not reserve buggies unless we can provide them a medical certificate or doctor letter. Sorry for the inconvenience and any misunderstanding. Best wishes from the AlgarveGolf.net team ๐Ÿ˜Š

Exceptional Customer Service
I found Algarve Golf's online booking system very easy to use. Christie the agent I dealt with was professional and very helpful.

I found that green fees where very competitive, and the tee times and dates once confirmed were registered at the various courses booked. So everything went according to plan, not always the case with other companies.

I have used Algarve Golf twice previously, and will certainly use them again on future trips to The Algarve.

Excellently Service
I have used Algarve Golf twice to book tee times on various courses.

They provide an easy booking system, and their service is efficient & professional.

We played Silves Golfe on Thursday and Vale da Pinta today. Everything went very smoothly when we arrived at both of the courses.

I will certainly use them again for future golf trips.


Thank you kindly John and for your review of Silves ๐Ÿ˜Š

A superb golf course

Course was well presented, and greens were fast and true
Alto Golf
Needs some attention
Sun, 26th Sep 2021

Course was somewhat untidy, and very worn in parts. Greens needed a little bit of attention in places. Nevertheless the course is a good test of golf, with tight fairways, and tricky greens.
