Morgado on Mon, 10th Jan 2022
Excellent course and views.
The course was in very nice condition and the greens were faster than we thought when we started out. All in all we had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed playing Morgado and look forward to coming back soon.

Great condition, well kept, would recommend. The course does not overly penalise the average golfer on a wayward shot.

« Old course » . Too much ditches crossing the fairways Maintenance seems poor and the greens are in trouble compared to the courses around Faro . Good welcome .

Ungepflegter Platz
Ungepflegter Platz, Deutlich schlechter als vor 2 Jahren. Für den Zustand nicht gerechtfertigte Greenfee-Preise.

Ich werde diesen Platz nicht mehr spielen

Good all-round 9 hole
Long 9 hole course, good value for money, walkable and less busy.

Alamos on Fri, 19th Nov 2021
Worst course so far
A 5 hour 15 minute round with no rangers in sight. Awful! To add to that misery all the on course washrooms were locked, so not a very friendly course for ladies. Will not be back.

Average, bit pricey for an average course
Bit dry & boney!

Penina resort course played November 2021
Course very dry due to lack of rain, but greens were fast although some showing significant wear and tear. Pace of play was good with no hold ups. This is a good course for practice but at €40 per person is overpriced.

A nice course to play!
A beautiful course! We loved it and can’t wait to play again.

Superb condition, great greens and fairways.

Play was slow on the day though but that is similar with all courses at that time of year.

Interesting layout and in good condition. Food could have been better in the clubhouse afterwards to improve the overall experience.

Alamos Course
Very friendly and helpful staff. Course was a little rough around the edges. Not much help in terms of distances when on fairways. Very acceptable greens in good condition. The pathways for the buggy’s were a little dangerous in some areas due to unfinished surfacing. All in all a very enjoyable days golf.

Alamos on Wed, 13th Oct 2021
Too slow!
I agree-a marsall is necessary! Very,very slow today! We had to wait at least 10 min on each tee! After 14 holes we gave up, so far we had played for 4 hours and 20 minutes.

The condition is not good: very bumpy roads, fairways and greens could be better.

Finin Mac a Bhaird from Ireland

Excellent with great greens

Morgado on Fri, 8th Oct 2021
A very enjoyable coarse that we found fair but not penal, (21 to 28 handicaps).

Well maintained & the greens were superb, interesting 14th hole!!!

Well worth playing again.

Now a disgrace
I’ve been coming to Penina for 25 years and never seen the course in such poor condition.

It is a disgrace the way this ex championship course has been allowed to fade into mediocrity.

There is nothing about which I can be positive. Both fairways and greens are in very poor condition, and there are leaks to the watering system all over the course.

You know things are bad when even the Pro Shop staff warn you the course is in bad condition!

I just hope that someone does take over the hotel and course and spend the £millions it needs to restore it to its former glories.

Very nice condition, tight drives & small greens, a great test of golf highly recommended.

Holes with a lot of space
Nice course but because of the long dry summer the grass was brown and difficult to play.

Where is the Marshall ….
The course needs a Marshall…. Slow play by Britts with hangover. Shame because course is nice and well kept.

Needs some attention
Course was somewhat untidy, and very worn in parts. Greens needed a little bit of attention in places.

Nevertheless the course is a good test of golf, with tight fairways, and tricky greens.

Alamos not at its best
The course was in poor condition and I found the buggy paths a problem. I have a knee injury which means I need a buggy and with the “entrance “ to the fairway the best part of 200m from the . This meant I had to walk some considerable distance on each hole. I admit I didn’t ask if I could have a blue flag ( I have had this previously at Boavista) which would have allowed me more access to the fairway.

I have played Alamos before and the set up was different and the course was in much better condition- not sure I would go back

What a disappointment this was. I’ve played on better municipal courses! It definitely wasn’t worth the money

A great day

Fun Course
Course was in generally good condition - there were some very wet spots - but the greens had just been punched and sanded, so the putting was difficult.
Richard from United Kingdom
Morgado on Thu, 23rd Sep 2021
Always good to come back to Morgado!
Always enjoy Morgado and whilst we do have a 4.5 hour round we were happy to play at this rate.

Greens really good but one criticism is the untidy areas around the bunkers front and back.

Nearly lost a ball in long grass just in front of the bunkers but all round a good track!

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

Nice course
Pleasant reception staff, starter efficient and had been with the course since inception. Greens good fairways good, we teed at 8.30 and didnt catch anyone up, nor were we holding up anyone. Would recommend

Penina Resort on Wed, 15th Sep 2021
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.

Stuart from United Kingdom
Penina Resort on Wed, 15th Sep 2021
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.

Frans from Portugal
Penina Resort on Wed, 1st Sep 2021
Nice golf but the fairways ……!
This golfcourse needs maintenance, because the fairways were not in good condition.
John from United Kingdom
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.
Stuart from United Kingdom
Morgado on Fri, 27th Aug 2021
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.

Gary from United Kingdom
Penina Championship on Sun, 22nd Aug 2021
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
You pay what you get for
I am the first time playing in Portugal . Alamos was the last of 4th courses i played. It is not nice and wast of time . Place number 5. I only pay 30 Euro - thanks god

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.
