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.

I have played Palmares many times over the past 4 or 5 years and it has some of the most enjoyable golf in the Algarve. The best two loops are the Alvor and Lagos which have some wonderful views and great golf holes. The first three holes on the Alvor are not attractive or particularly easy but then you cross the road and the three holes that follow all have wonderful views down to the Alvor bay. On the back nine (Lagos) you start with an excellent par 4 down the hill which is followed by another great par 4 and then one of the best par 3s on the Algarve. Apart from the 18th every hole on the back nine is memorable and when the greens are running at a good pace (over 10 on the stimp) you need to bring your best game. The addition of the new clubhouse makes this a must on every visit to the Algarve.
Worth a try

One of the new kids in the block ! It’s a property play so they say build a good track and it will sell the inventory !! 27 holes great views of Lagos and overall a nice experience , course Condition and greens could be much better
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 !!
