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.

A nice course with stunning views. Reasonably challenging without being too tough.

Very attractive layout. We played Lagos/Alvarez combination. Fantastic views to the sea on the course and especially from the clubhouse. Greens struggling with patches of disease, probably due to lack of water after summer. But didn’t spoil a great day out for 8 low to mid handicap golfers.
Beautiful course.

Absolutely stunning, magnificent, greatest golf course in the world. Played the Lagos & Praia courses - shot a beautiful 96 with an 18 handicap because I saw a gigantic bunny rabbit and was mesmerized by the sound of the waves and train rolling through the foggy morning. I recommend getting out as early as possible (with sunglasses).
