Palmares Description

The 27 hole Palmares Golf Course is located near Lagos in the Algarve. This course has been totally transformed by the American course designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. He has created a mixture of parkland with authentic Links style. The 27 holes are laid out on the side of a south-facing hill overlooking the Bay of Lagos. It is questionably the most attractive location of all the golf courses in the Algarve. The views as you play your round are often quite breathtaking.

On the Palmares Course there are three 9 hole circuits the Alvor Course, the Lagos Course, and the Praia Course. The first nine holes run through woodland and the down to the beach with lovely views of the Alvor Estuary and the ocean. The Lagos nine take the player down to the beach and again with superb view. The last nine holes are mainly located on the actual beach among the sand dunes with a par 5 of 550 metres creating a good challenge.

Nice Course 👍

Nice course with stunning vistas. Just needed some rain to green up the fairways. Would certainly go back to play again.

Fairways suffering because of drought in Portugal felt the free one drink to compensate an insult they should reduce prices ( it’s not cheap to play palmares) and clearly looking at the building work going on there’s no shortage of cash.

Poor condition. There was no grass on the fairways. Would not recommend to anyone. Definitely not worth the money
Terrible staff manager

Very disappointed with the staff and course. Understand that the course is dry, but bunkers and fairways were a mess. Greens were not well either. But the worst experience was with the staff manager behind the reception. There were no buggies available and we had to take an electric trolley. Price for the 2 trolleys was €40 versus a buggy of €45. After 9 holes we wanted to change the trolley for a buggy. There were plenty available. The lady in charge behind the reception told us we could if we pay the full amount of €45 for the trolley's, instead of the €5 difference, What a terrible service. and so customer unfriendly fora quite expensive course.
