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.

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

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.

Not as long as the Morgado course and a bit more effort made in the design.

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.

I like this course. Very long but you can always use the driver and go for it.

Wide fairways and good greens.

Enjoyed playing the course it getting better as the years go by. Greens in great condition whether that's got something to do with Margodo and Alamos hosting some pro comp. However I was pleasantly surprised

Very disappointed
Very disappointed. Course in poor overall condition.

Pace of play extremely slow. After just over 4 1/2 hours of waiting,waiting and waiting...and only 16 holes played ,we gave up!!

At no stage did a steward come round and try to speed things along.

Our 2nd time playing here and definitely last!! Never again will we waste money here.

Great course, in good condition. Generous areas, it is always easy to find the ball. Staff was friendly, but some more knowledge of English in the restaurant is desirable.
Tapio from Portugal
Alto Golf on Sat, 18th Jan 2020
Very difficult an tricky course, often narrow. In my opinion there are too many holes that you have to play upwards against the greenes. In reality, that makes the course much longer then the distance on the score card. The staff in the reception and restaurant are friendly and servicemindet

Well maintained golf course. The fairways require a good opening because they are quite narrow. Greens are fast but in good shape. Club cozy.

Not the best of days.
Bit wet to really appreciate the course, the greens looked good however not swept of water, many par 3s same length, overall lovely walk and sure course has seen better days,. Real issue is paying 150 pair and the being asked for handicaps ( we were 6 &11) paired with another couple who struggled to often get off the tee., very slow and extremely frustrating. More care needed by course when taking bookings and matching pairs, get the impression it’s grab the money and who cares about the enjoyment.

Real Challenge.
Course was in great condition when we played mid November. Glorious fairways, huge bunkers and fast greens made for a real challenge. Didn't take advantage of all the facilities due to pressure of time hence only 4 stars, otherwise perfect days golf.

Penina Resort on Wed, 6th Nov 2019
Small resort course ( 9x2)
Good course for starting with on a vacation. Greens are good but very flat, not hard to read. Fairways are flat and wide. Not a big challenge, can be played easily in around 4 hours unless allowed to get overloaded.

Lovely course in great condition
Lovely course in great condition. We played off the yellow tees which made the course a little too easy, so would have liked the option to play off more difficult tees but they were not marked. We hired clubs (old Nike woods, irons and putter), they were OK but not as good as I would have expected and have seen at other courses.

Alto greens were okay, fairways need some work. The course is a tight layout causing some worry of errant shots.
Andy Cutler from United Kingdom
Penina Championship on Mon, 21st Oct 2019
Mr Cutler
Both myself and my playing partner were disappointed in the condition of the course, practise areas were still covered in dew at 9am.

General upkeep of the course made it look quite tatty, not what we were expecting considering the green fees, Oceanica courses around Vilamoura all put this course to shame.

As for the course layout, we found it to be a good challenge with some interesting holes, just let down by the shabby state of the course and facilities, just not worth the money.

Alamos on Wed, 16th Oct 2019
87.50 for a course that’s v average and in poor nick!

Greens have an issue of some kind.

Tees brought very forward...... holding up play even more as one waits for some par 4s greens!

Course generally in poor nick/ v dusty turf.

The fairway fringe rough was unplayable for average golfers if you were slightly off line it was to punishing. This is one course we will not be playing again

Don’t bother.....
Despite teeing off on time, it took 3.5 hours to play just 12 holes and it completely ruined the game and we walked off. Far too many groups playing. The groups in front of us were playing Texas scramble which should be quick but they were holding us and others up on every hole. The marshal said he would sort it out but nothing improved.

We complained to reception but they wasn’t interested.

Challenging Course
Difficult but challenging course . Accurate driving required. Greens in good condition that require a high level of skill to score well.

Morgado on Mon, 7th Oct 2019
Very slow , arrived for tee time 30 minutes early , to be told there is a 25 minute delay due to the course being busy , waiting every hole ,

Cramming golfers in to make money, will not play again

Penina Championship on Mon, 7th Oct 2019
Good first days play.
Fairly narrow and challenging course, good value for money when taking advantage of 2 player and 1 buggy deals. The only gripe would be the course management were unorganised when it came to collecting buggies. I would be keen to play here again.

Well designed resort course, in good condition, however some fairways were overwatered. Nice setting with being able to see the ocean from a couple of view points. Would play again but seemed a bit expensive for the experience.

Bigelow Group Review
Obviously a well designed course, visually pleasing and challenging, but was in poor repair the day we played it. Dry in many places, several greens had patchwork of new turf that had not been rolled correctly. We were especially disappointed that no one mentioned the toilets on the back nine were out of order - with no alternative provided - not good for the ladies in our group.

Correct mais beaucoup mieux en Algarve
Terrain correct mais monotone toujours les mêmes paysages bordés de palmiers terrain plat sans surprise

A nice course with some interesting holes. They had suffered with a lack of rain this summer which meant that some of the fairways were a little brown, which didn’t affect the golf and the course gave us a free drink due to this which was a nice touch! A good course with plenty of character.

Alamos on Tue, 17th Sep 2019
Played 13 Sept. terrible condition. No grass anywhere but for a few greens. Stay away from it. Treated poorly by staff as a EuropeanTour event on. We paid too much to be treated that way.

Alto Golf on Mon, 9th Sep 2019
Pleasant course...very heavily watered in places..which meant no run on the ball..

Played 2 nd September..

Felt the green fee of 134 euros for 2 players and 45 euros for a buggy very steep ...would not do again at that price
