Needs Some Investment
Could be a wonderful course again but the condition of the tee boxes and fairways leave much to be desired. Quite scrappy in parts, which is a shame as many of the holes are really pretty.

Also too many people on the course resulting in a 5 hour game.

Morgado on a rough day
Unfortunately we had a couple of thunderstorms so our game was interrupted twice but during this time the staff were great in making sure everyone was safe and well catered for

The course was very good and a good challenge for us

We will return soon

Great course, would return
Excellent course. Forgiving off the tee but some challenging but fair Ole’s. Good practice facilities and bar area.

A big disappointment
The course in very poor shape - naked ground in the middle of the fairways, uneven tees with no grass, the course looks like somebody stopped investing in it some time ago. The design is not spectacular - quite boring to be honest. This was my last round in Algarve (I've played on 10 different courses) and this was a big disappointment.

Great Condition
Played this course many times but usually in October. The course was in fantastic condition at this time of year much better than October.

A testing course where you have to take your medicine if off the fairway!

Enjoyable round.

Alamos golfing experience
My favorite course played it twice and a great challange each time.

It was in great condition considering how dry it is, the greens were fantastic, a real challange for both speed and reading.

Staff were excellent very friendly and helpful, I would definately recommend if your in the vicinity.

A lot of wind and extremely dry. Very difficult to hold onto the greens.

Well worth a visit
A nice course with some interesting holes. Fairways in excellent condition given the heat. The course was closed for a few days recently for maintenance, and the greens have been fed and heavily sanded, which is why only 4 stars. I believe in a few weeks they’ll receive the benefit of the recent work. We hired a buggy and clubs from the resort- the clubs were Taylormade Sim irons and woods, which were in good condition. The tree lines along the fairways mean that you need to be accurate off most tee’s. All in all, a really enjoyable round. I will be back if I get the opportunity.

Golf standards
Very loud crowd in front of me.

2 four balls. Never asked me to play through.

Drinking and music. Dress code very low standard. They need to have a course Marshall enforcing golf standards.

Very disappointed with the management

Nice weekend golfer course
The reviews of this course were not the best but most be for lower HTCs But the Fairways and greens but are fine! If you are just a weekend golfer and want to enjoy a nice round of golf Alto is perfect! Smooth play when I played and few challenging holes even for the most expericenced golfers!

Confidence booster course!
Was better than expected! There were reviews of slow play but I few through the course. The conditions were good except for most greens were slower than we would like! Shorter course big confidence booster is not a long hitter but most hit it straight on its narrow fairways
Tom from United Kingdom
Penina Championship on Thu, 2nd Jun 2022
The course is in urgent need of renovation. It’s all very tired from the tee boxes to the distance markers, and signage. As others have mentioned, the fairways are in terrible condition, and sometimes you can find a better lie by missing them entirely. For the price of a round, you’d expect a much better experience. My advice is to avoid until the above is rectified.

Penina Fairways are dead grass
Unfortunately this course isn’t being maintained. All the fairways were dead due to no watering. Such a shame l haven’t seen this course in such a state before

Poor Penina
Greens are good but fairways and Teeing ground abysmal. Driving range balls extremely poor. Staff disengaged. Had to ask for everything. I just returned from Amendoiera where things were completely different with bottles of water and ice in carts. Won’t be back unless there is huge improvement.

Lovely course
Lovely course with lots of eucalyptus trees. Long Par 4 but great setting.

The fairways were very dry and almost sandy. A bit more water would help.

Fun course, challenging greens
This course was suggested to us when another was not available. It did not disappoint, however, and provided some enjoyable, albeit challenging golf. The greens in particular were very challenging, and some of the downhill putts could race past ending much further away even when simply tapped. Still, very much enjoyed it here.

Overall nice holiday course
Nice course. Fast and difficult greens. The course Itself isn’t to difficult.

My only remark is that the toilets on the course weren’t very clean

Mark from United Kingdom
Penina Championship on Tue, 26th Apr 2022
Not really Championship Standard
A bit disappointed by this Championship Golf course. Course not in the greatest shape and fairways dry and uneven. Greens nice and big and layout pretty good but requires some invested and lots of maintenance. On the positive side, long course and quite challenging.

Splendidly landscaped course
Long wide flat fairways, makes it fun to play for us mediocre players.

Beautifully landscaped with grandios old trees and even cactii. Loved that.

Enough water hazards, quite amazingly managed to stay away...

The Restaurant Terrasse has a beautiful view

We felt that all was well maintained.

Decent day out
Nice layout, wide open from the tee which should suit any standard. Most of the staff were very helpful when we arrived. Play was extremely slow all day. Hired clubs, which were old Nike clubs (weren't great). Still managed to enjoy our day for a somewhat reasonable price.

Course in lovely condition and the reception staff were very helpful and friendly. The golf clubs we hired were also good.
Leona from Norway
Alto Golf on Thu, 7th Apr 2022
We have been playing here since 2004. Not really a course for those who like to hit long shots, for most of the fairways are narrow and curvy. This course requires precision. The fairways, the roughs, the bunkers and the greens are well kept; and the toilets are clean. The driving range is nice, tidy and serene. Have they not closed down the old 12th hole (par 3 ) and turned the old 16th hole from par 6 to par 5, we would've given this course 5 stars.
Leona from Norway
Penina Championship on Thu, 7th Apr 2022
Good lay out, but poor maintenance
The lay out is really nice, fairways are long and greens are challenging. It could have been a topnotch course but the maintenance is rather poor. The roughs are 'spottish' and the big bunkers have only 1 rake. The toilets both at the driving range and on the course are so poorly kept (dirty and no paper towels to dry your hands) . They say this was once a regal course and we could kinda see that. But the way it is maintained these days, seems its regal days are definitely over.

Leider in einem schlechtem Zustand.

Das Personal war zudem nicht sehr freundlich.

Keine Begrüßung,keine Verabschiedung.

Das Übungsgrün war überhaupt nicht zu gebrauchen da das

Fairway nicht bewachsen war.

Der Kurs ist interessant aber hat auch weite Wege.

Bitte nur mit Buggy wenn man nicht gut zu Fuss ist.

In meinen Augen gibt es wesetlich bessere Clubs an der Algarve(Hcp:9.0).

Abandoned because of weather
We had to abandon after 4 holes due to lightening, but c’est la vie! From memory (about 8 years ago) it was a decent course and the holes we played certainly have that impression

Morgado on Sun, 27th Mar 2022
Very playable course
Good course in decent condition with some good challenges. There was a little work going on around the course but that didn’t detract from the pleasure ( but did my poor score!).

Don’t be put off by the long drive in from the gatehouse, past derelict apartment blocks. Very different when you get to the course itself. Probably less of a challenge than Alamos, but not to be missed.

Worth playing
Very good course and in good condition when we played in March ‘22. The layout is great, as were course conditions with the greens in particular well -presented

Slightly more challenging than the sister course and well worth a visit.

Quick 9 before the storm
Nice course. Really well maintained greens. Facilities were decent and good offering in the clubhouse. Would be 5* if you didn't have to also pay for balls at the driving range so long as you're playing a round

Fantastisk Bane
Det var en kjempe fin bane med gode greener å Fairways. En Bane som gir en hobby golfer en mestrings følelse å gode score. Åpen fra tee som gjør at du senker skuldrene å får gode slag. Ingen ting å frykte.

Fast, sloping greens
Some fabulous hole son this course but the green were too severe. Wicked slopes and very fast. You couldn’t stop the ball on the greens even with a good shot on.
