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.

Disappointing maintenance and condition

A spectacular location with 27 holes and a high end housing development under serious construction activity . While spectacular views make the course enjoyable , the actual holes can be quite bland and typical of a resort situation are on the less challenging variety . The VERY bad greens spoiled the experience for us and they really were very diseased and spongy , one might think overwatering has been the cause , a number of bunkers were also hard pan and wet , given that there has been no rain in months this is caused by misdirected irrigation . Given the nature and cost of golf at Palmares they really need to up The game on maintainamce , I wouldn’t rush back in a hurry !!

First time I have played the new layout - excellent. Penalises poor shots but generally find your ball! Staff very helpful and friendly. Views Of the sea all the way round are pretty special. I will certainly play again. Once the new clubhouse opens this will be an outstanding facility.

Some construction going on at the moment but causes only minor disruptions. Very nice layout and enjoyable round. Course was in good shape for August and greens were extremely well groomed and rolled true.
