A very enjoyable coarse that we found fair but not penal, (21 to 28 handicaps).

Well maintained & the greens were superb, interesting 14th hole!!!

Well worth playing again.

Always good to come back to Morgado!
Always enjoy Morgado and whilst we do have a 4.5 hour round we were happy to play at this rate.

Greens really good but one criticism is the untidy areas around the bunkers front and back.

Nearly lost a ball in long grass just in front of the bunkers but all round a good track!

Great open course
Lovely open course with a really nice relaxed flowing layout.

Buggy or trolley works as it's open enough to enjoy a good breeze everywhere.

Visually let down with the half constructed accommodation blocks but these will get done at some point.

A lovely golf course
A lovely golf course with very well maintained fairways and greens, amidst stunning scenery. And very nice, reasonably priced food at the restaurant. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Nice but not the best
I am the first time playing in Portugal . Morgado was the last of 5th courses i played. It is much nicer than Álamos but not so nice than Alto - Gramacho or Silves. The price of 30 Euro was ok.

Perfect fay on a perfect course
Played Morgado a few times before, however this time, the course was in perfect shape. Tour like greens and very good fairways. And with am unbeatable price the day was great despite the early start.

Nice golfing place
Nice not too challenging course, although par 73. Not much water.

Long, challenging, yet very enjoyable course
Friendly and helpful staff, long and well designed course. Fairways could use some water, but played in mid October so to be expected that there would be dryness. Grass was still very solid to play off and greens were immaculate condition.

A Gentle Test
Played on 4.10.20. Course in v good condition although greens are slow. First time playing here.....course is a gentle test and both my wife and I were a bit flattered by our scores. A resort course that does not beat you up.

Morgados - 3 stars but beautiful course
Beautiful course, however I don't think it was very well organized. I was playing in a two ball and we were told to start on the 10th tee (I can't imagine why given what happened). When we got back around to the 1st tee there were multiple four balls in front of us that made pace of play VERY slow. After 4.5 hours we had only been able to make it through 15 holes and unfortunately had to leave in order to make a (very) late lunch reservation. When you are paying this much money to play a course I think it's reasonable to expect to be able to finish all 18 holes in under (or at least around) 4 hours. If you aren't playing in a four ball I would make sure to inquire with the clubhouse about what groups are in front of you.

Nice course
My second time at Morgado and pleasantly surprised at the course condition (early Sept). The back nine opens up a little more than the front and has some spectacular holes.

Good golf course in excellent condition throughout. Reception very pleasant and driving range excellent and good value for range balls. No discount for juniors but we played at reduced rate anyway due to the Covid situation. Overall very enjoyable

Lovely course
Nice course, the front nine lulled us into a false sense of security as the second nine were significantly more tricky. Overall, a very enjoyable round.
Klaus-Dieter from Germany

long and relatively flat course without any spectacular layout i. e. design but in good overall condition. Enjoyable for higher hcp

One of the nicest courses you’ll play in Europe.
Martin from Portugal

Full power!
I like this course. Very long but you can always use the driver and go for it.

Wide fairways and good greens.

Great course, in good condition. Generous areas, it is always easy to find the ball. Staff was friendly, but some more knowledge of English in the restaurant is desirable.

Real Challenge.
Course was in great condition when we played mid November. Glorious fairways, huge bunkers and fast greens made for a real challenge. Didn't take advantage of all the facilities due to pressure of time hence only 4 stars, otherwise perfect days golf.
Robert from United Kingdom

Lovely course in great condition
Lovely course in great condition. We played off the yellow tees which made the course a little too easy, so would have liked the option to play off more difficult tees but they were not marked. We hired clubs (old Nike woods, irons and putter), they were OK but not as good as I would have expected and have seen at other courses.

The fairway fringe rough was unplayable for average golfers if you were slightly off line it was to punishing. This is one course we will not be playing again
Gary from United Kingdom
on Mon, 7th Oct 2019
Very slow , arrived for tee time 30 minutes early , to be told there is a 25 minute delay due to the course being busy , waiting every hole ,

Cramming golfers in to make money, will not play again

Pieter from Netherlands

Golf course is ok. Disappointing that buggies could not go in the fairway. A lot of walking from and to the cart path. Has had negative impact on our golfing experience. Will not return.
Grzegorz from Poland

Enjoyable Round
Pleasant if not inspiring course. We got it on a very windy day but still enjoyed the round. Some decent holes, especially on the back 9 but a little bland on the front 9. Condition was good and greens decent. I read one review which said great course for a hangover and would second that!

Course Review Mogado
The Course was in excellent condition as ususal albeit a little scorched in areas. New Course management for buggies has been developed which has added to the protection of the course which is fantastic. The greens were very true.

Cannot believe that 2 courses nexts to each other could be so much different and yet be so enjoyable not as hilly as alamos but some greens as big a 5 aside football pitch

Morgado needs much more maintenance
Greens in very good condition. Fairways far too dry. Looks that one saved water. Also in front of greens many areas were repaired.
Peter from Germany
on Wed, 6th Feb 2019
Very poor shape. Not worth the money
Course was in a miserable shape! Fairways completely dry and brown. Ares around the greens partly without any grass.

Good holiday course
Good holiday course with rough that isn't too penal. Greens weren't great as had been dressed recently. A big course so you probably need a buggy if it's hot. Nice club house, good place to eat.
Alan from United Kingdom
on Fri, 5th Oct 2018
Morgado. A good test.
Very enjoyable, a proper test of golf with some long holes, as well as some that will punish a stray shot.
Andrew from United Kingdom
on Thu, 6th Sep 2018
Greens were in poor condition as the course had been closed for maintenance. In fairness we were offered to play on the sister course (Alamos) as an alternative. Good layout with nice variety of hole layouts. Would recommend
Stewart from Portugal
on Sat, 4th Aug 2018
Really good back 9. Front 9 a little less inspiring but still a decent track.
Tony Clements from United Kingdom
on Mon, 25th Jun 2018
6 of us played Morgado and we loved it. The course was demanding as it was windy when we played. Nice layout, but more of a links/moorland feel, compared to the typical resort courses on the Algarve. Would like to play it again on a less windy day.
Neill from Portugal
on Wed, 20th Jun 2018
Played alto golf 3 years ago and 2nd time playing Morgado in 2 years course in grear condition both timesand is good challenge for golferss of all handicaps
jeffrey hogg from United Kingdom
on Mon, 18th Jun 2018
The course is good value for money - but - they had lost our tee booking - squeezed us in - the course has a general air of being unkept - in particular balls going into the first cut can easily be lost - altogether disappointing - won’t be going back
Josephine from Portugal

1st time playing Morgado
Great course!! Wide fairways but rough is treacherous!! Very dense and swallow the balls even though the grass is not tall. Trees are not mature enough to provide shelter from the heat. Best play in cooler months.
CARL from United Kingdom

slow greens
course inexcellent condition except for one major issue, the long and fluffy slow greens, never putted on slower, i know the greens were recovering from the recent open but these should let people know, have enjoyed it previously

Excellent scenic course in good condition.
Huge number of bugs on front nine....probably bad timing, but the course is excellent. Fantastic scenery and wildlife. Greens better here than elsewhere. Glad to have had a buggy. Course just hosted Tour event so would expect it to be in good condition.

A worthwhile visit
Second time I've played it and better than I remember. Lots of work being done to get it ready for the Portuguese Open but didn't impact our game nor the quality of the course.

Morgado Review
T boxes poor.

Bunkers full of water - no drainage.

Greens good considering the weather.

Fairways ok.

Bernd from Portugal

Try it and you will love it
Best place Algarve, not so much „overdone“ golfer without any idea of golf! Fairways are wide enough for mistake driven balls. No houses to close to the golf area, that’s prevents accidents! Greens and Fairways excellent.

The shop and the restaurant is o.k.

When you stay at Algarve and you are a real golfer, you should go there.

Paul Bushell from United Kingdom

Good layout and good variety of holes.Unfortunately heavy rain stopped play and only played first 9 holes.

Morgado - a bit disappointing.
Very good well stocked pro-shop with friendly , attentive and helpful staff. Caddy mater very helpful.

Course not in that good condition with very heavily sanded tee boxes and fringes of the greens. Some greens cut but others were not making it difficult to judge the speeds of the putts. Fairways were very dry and showing signs of wear and some were quite bear and bald in places.

Very nice clubhouse and bar / restaurant facilities with friendly staff.

Having played Pestana courses Gramacho & Alto earlier in the week, Morgado was quite disappointing.

Tero from Finland

Nice course
Leppoisa lomakenttä - tilaa on hyvin, joskin paljon myöskin bunkkereita. Good course, lot of space and in good condition.

Vuokramailat keskinkertaiset hintaan nähden - kannattaa vuokrata jostain muualta. Kärryt ja pallot molemmat 6 euroa. Ystävällinen henkilökunta.

Fast greens
The Morgado Golfcourse looked brown. But. The fairways and the greens were very well maintained. It made us very comfortable. The starter was very attentive and sent us on the Tee 10 because there was a large group in front of us. Very good...

Morgado c'est beau
Trés agréable parcours ,mais comme beaucoup de parcours de golfs certains golfeurs restent incorrects sur le parcours. Une certaine éducation se perd . Je précise je joue index à un chiffre .

Okay baguettes.
Bunkers not even sand and holes badly cut.
Miikka from Belgium
on Thu, 2nd Nov 2017
First 9 very flat. Holes going back and forth. Not that interesting setting, though holes are of interest for golf. Back nine more hilly and variable.

The whole setting is a bit strange, as it seems that a huge hotel/golfinh enter had been started to be built. Yet, one hotel-looking building is completely empty, and anohter huge complex is only half way built....?

Very disappointing. Course was in poor condition and there were some temporary greens which was surprising as we were in the 'high' season.

What a difference a week makes!
Morgado back to its stunning best, all the greens in great condition after the maintenance, worth the wait!

Greens recovering from maintenance, but rest of the course was in great condition.

An interesting course to play and well worth a visit.

The greens had been treated and were a little rough in places but we had been warned about this in advance and were given a discount so no complaints.

Miller/Logan annual golf outing
Morgado was not in best condition but playable, in fairness we were advised in advance of temporary greens

An enjoyable game in good time

Club house excellent good choice of food served very quickly

Morgado greens shocking!
Extremely disappointed with conditions of greens. Lots of bare patches and covered in sand. Almost impossible to putt on. Staff disinterested in feedback. Appreciate your comments?

Enjoyable, but too dry (course and us!)
Lovely set out course, but areas in poor condition for having held the Open de Portugal recently.

The rough was like straw and other areas were burnt/not watered correctly too.

Also the drinks cart managed to avoid us the whole round, which was poor, as we were in desperate need of refreshments come the back 9.

Overall the course looked like it could be a great one if looked after like others in the Algarve are or out of Summer season when its naturally wetter.

Still enjoyed the game, but could have been outstanding with better watering.

Duncan from Portugal

Nice and open course, good for holiday golf
Would have awarded 7 from 10 but 3.5 not an option.. Open fairways and decent greens. Not the most interesting course and it was very busy when we played so felt a little rushed. Give it a go though...it's good value and ideal to make up one of your holiday rounds. Sister course Alamos is better though in my opinion.

Enjoyed a pleasant mornings golf at Morgardo. Not too busy, course in good condition.
