Lovely course with tight fairways - and looked after properly which seems to be the Pestana way.

A proper members club and all staff were friendly and very helpful

Penna is not up to standard
Very sorry to say that this course in very poor condition.

The greens are very bumpy and the fairways are up to the of most municipal courses.

Do not waste your money playing here.

Nice course but needed maintenance
Bit disappointed with the over all conditions of the fairways on the 12.9.21 .

Decent enough course with some nice long holes and a good challenge for mid handicap golfers.

Great course but greens were awful and whole course looks tired and in need of some investment. Staff food and facilities all excellent.

A good experince at Penina
Very friendly staff. The resort course, which we had booked, was in very poor condition. After playing 9 I voiced my concerns tp Maria at the golf desk and we were having lunch Maria approached us and said we could complnatary use of the use of the championship course. A good outcome for us.

Penina course review
I had been warned about the condition of the course in July, but thought there should have been enough time for things to improve. Unfortunately the greens have not been taken care of as there is invasive grass and damage on all of the greens and they were bumpy and difficult to putt on. Having played other courses in the area recently this course is sadly behind on repairing them.

This course has a long history and pedigree but needs some TLC.

Nice golf but the fairways ……!
This golfcourse needs maintenance, because the fairways were not in good condition.

Penina Championship on Sun, 29th Aug 2021
Overall a good course, challenging but lacking maintenance, debris about, layout ok but some tee points lacked hole information boards, and distance markers. Some greens a bit tacky and patchy. Val de Lobo Ocean and Old Course much better quality.

Great open course
Lovely open course with a really nice relaxed flowing layout.

Buggy or trolley works as it's open enough to enjoy a good breeze everywhere.

Visually let down with the half constructed accommodation blocks but these will get done at some point.

Great course just not looked after
I’m really sorry to write this,could be an absolute fantastic course,unfortunately the maintenance standards were extremely poor,firstly refreshment facilities were non existent,general public just walking and jogging the course , no consideration for the paying golfer,the greens must be the worst on the algarve,leaves and debris all over,

This was the poorest experience I have had in all my algarve holidays

We liked it!
Very beautiful course with various challenging holes. The grass is different than at home in Sweden so you have no roll. But nice greens and a wonderful day made us very happy!

Meeting Henry Cotton
Played there on vacation in the mid-70s with my parents. I recall playing on Christmas Day and Henry Cotton was in the pro shop and took our greens fees. Seeing him was a great honor. I remember that more than the golf course.

A lovely golf course
A lovely golf course with very well maintained fairways and greens, amidst stunning scenery. And very nice, reasonably priced food at the restaurant. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Challenging for a beginner like me
Quite a tricky course for me being an inconsistent golfer but I would go again as it was very enjoyable and the scenery is stunning. Very well maintained fairways and greens.

Nice but not the best
I am the first time playing in Portugal . Morgado was the last of 5th courses i played. It is much nicer than Álamos but not so nice than Alto - Gramacho or Silves. The price of 30 Euro was ok.
Marco from Germany
Alamos on Mon, 31st May 2021

Wide fairways and nice views on the landscape
we played the course last year in February

I have to say the greenkeeper did an excellent job in the meantime

outstanding price value

will be a challenge if it get warmer

Joerg Krames from Germany
Alto Golf on Mon, 31st May 2021
Beautiful old trees and some challenges
Excellent fairways as well as the greens

Due to the lay-out - some holes are close to a residential area - some fairway are small

The greenfee is on the upper side but worth it

Historic course near Portimao
Very nice course but once you get of the fairway the grass is high and not forgiving. Very beautiful historic layout mostly flat but with some tough approaches with bunker and water hazards. Overall, we really loved the course!

Perfect fay on a perfect course
Played Morgado a few times before, however this time, the course was in perfect shape. Tour like greens and very good fairways. And with am unbeatable price the day was great despite the early start.

Three old gits on a golfing week in the Algarve
This course was in dreadful condition.

Wild boars have caused damage in many areas but that wasn't the main problem.

The fairways were patchy in place (i,e, with no grass), and had weeds growing out in other places. It appears that they hadn't been watered for weeks.

The greens were consistent, save for one which was a temporary one, caused by boar damage on the real green.

Overall, it appears the Pennina Group ploughs its funds into the championship course and ignores the Resort course.

Very disappointing.

We will never return.

Belle journée sur ce beau golf, en plus avec le soleil.

Dernière journée de golf en Algarve, il faut songer à repartir en Guadeloupe...nous reviendrons jouer sur ces beaux golfs.

Long, challenging, yet very enjoyable course
Friendly and helpful staff, long and well designed course. Fairways could use some water, but played in mid October so to be expected that there would be dryness. Grass was still very solid to play off and greens were immaculate condition.

Alto - We will come back
Alto is in good condition. The course has quite many similar holes finishing with the greens on a height. Still I enjoyed playing it.

A Gentle Test
Played on 4.10.20. Course in v good condition although greens are slow. First time playing here.....course is a gentle test and both my wife and I were a bit flattered by our scores. A resort course that does not beat you up.

Morgados - 3 stars but beautiful course
Beautiful course, however I don't think it was very well organized. I was playing in a two ball and we were told to start on the 10th tee (I can't imagine why given what happened). When we got back around to the 1st tee there were multiple four balls in front of us that made pace of play VERY slow. After 4.5 hours we had only been able to make it through 15 holes and unfortunately had to leave in order to make a (very) late lunch reservation. When you are paying this much money to play a course I think it's reasonable to expect to be able to finish all 18 holes in under (or at least around) 4 hours. If you aren't playing in a four ball I would make sure to inquire with the clubhouse about what groups are in front of you.

Nice course
My second time at Morgado and pleasantly surprised at the course condition (early Sept). The back nine opens up a little more than the front and has some spectacular holes.

Penina Championship - good course
Playing Penina Championship you can be forgiven for thinking that you are in the UK (in summer of course). A really good tree-lined layout and not too difficult a walk as the course isn't hilly. Definitely worth a visit.

Penina Championship on Fri, 28th Aug 2020
Not worth the money
Clearly the course is not being properly looked after. The greens are pretty mediocre and very, very slow.

There is a general air of neglect.

Sadly, it's definitely not worth paying €154 for 2 players with a buggy.

Nette Wiese die dringend Pflege benötigt
Platz ist in einem miesen Zustand. Faiways kommen eher einer Pferderennbahn entgegen

Das Gras um die Bunker lange nicht mehr gemäht von der Länge zu urteilen mindestens 6-8 Wochen

Als Fazit nette Wiese die dringend Pflege benötigt

Very good course , some hole very difficult and require a good technic , the landscape is wonderfull, long fairway as well, i have spent a good time. Probably one of the best golf course in the area

Good golf course in excellent condition throughout. Reception very pleasant and driving range excellent and good value for range balls. No discount for juniors but we played at reduced rate anyway due to the Covid situation. Overall very enjoyable

Midday round.
Great value round. Big greens and very smooth. One or two holes need more water but it’s been very dry.

Lovely course
Nice course, the front nine lulled us into a false sense of security as the second nine were significantly more tricky. Overall, a very enjoyable round.

Short, tricky and very good but difficult greens
Short but tricky golf course in very good shape apart from tees. The greens are in very good condition but extremely difficult. The rest of the area could be in little better shape.

Wide fairways and good greens.
