Salgados golf.
My 5th and last game on my vacation.

Unfortunately not as enjoyable as Morgado or Alamos.

The fairways were not in great condition, many divits and disease, the bunkers were extremely wet due to the sprinkler system, i.e. big puddles.

The greens were not bad but lazy players not repairing.

Staff were excellent, very helpul and friendly.

On arrival we were greeted nicely,

Purchased lakeballs €10 for 10 balls,

Walk through clubhouse hired a buggy and 2 sets of clubs the clubs are 'nike vapor full sets'

Course is hard, surrounded by water but beautiful and well maintained greens were nice and soft.

Nice chipping practice Area!
This was the second time I played on this course so managed it a bit better! Fairway Conditions were better than the first time and the greens were good! Very easy to have a little miss-hit or use too much club that records a score breaker!

Salgados, a well maintained course worth playing.
The course is well maintained and the caddy master is friendly and efficient in the execution of his task.

Good value course in excellent condition.
Salgados today was superb. Fairways and greens immaculate.

We wanted to stop half way for a drink and a snack, with the thought of rejoining the back nine after a half hour or so. We were advised however that this wasn’t possible due to how busy the course was. Wonder if a 15 min stop would be a good idea for all, especially on a hot day!?

Bring extra balls if your swing is a bit rusty
The conditions of the fairways were ok not great! The Greens were better than expected and fast! This was the first time I played golf in three months so this course penalized me for any miss-hits! I would bring extra balls to be safe. I am looking forward to going back to it next week and do a better job! Can't leave that course with 106! It wasn't that demanding!!!!

2 Mid handicappers first time playing Salgados.
A great course that rewards a good golfer. Receptive greens in excellent condition give you a chance to attack the flag. Fairways have taken a bit of a beating. A lot of water but a great challenge. Would definitely play again.

Accuracy Over Distance On This Cracking Course
Accuracy over distance is the key. Very nice course, thoroughly enjoyed the challenge although all the water cost me a couple of balls! Highly recommend

Nice course beat handicap
Fantastic course green keepers are amazing I gave one star less because it’s very expensive and when renting clubs you’ve to buy balls even tees but course is superb

Slow play or overbooking ?
Course itself is ok but our round was ruined by slow play / overbooking . Took us 4 and a half hours to play 16 holes before we walked off as we had plans at night. Hire clubs weren’t great either . One set had a left handed putter and some of the grips were ripped or loose.

Excellent links course, well worth it.

Get tee off before 4pm if want full round
First the positive - the course was in fantastic condition, as other reviews state lots of water and some tricky shots where local knowledge would be a great advantage, the long 6th was very tight and had unseen danger, but still a joy to play. The clubhouse and facilities were excellent. The location is great, just a short distance from Albufeira.

Now the negative, we booked 18 holes and after booking were informed in the confirmation that due to the time (16:40 tee off) we 'may not complete the full round due to time of sunset'. When we arrived (thankfully very early) the staff informed us that you only get 9 holes if tee off after 16:00, this was very different to 'may not'. After some discussion with the staff we agreed that we would play as many as possible - we managed to tee off at 16:20, had two games in front let us play through, had no one in front of us for the back nine, and a buggy, so managed the full 18 - but it was tight. If we had gone out at the scheduled time, or any of the games had not let us through then we would have managed 12 holes top - because of this I felt selling the package as 18 holes was not correct. As per other reviews also thought that the rental clubs were dated, I couldn't use my driver due to damage, but because of the time constraint didn't attempt to change before the round - as there were two of us we just shared that club.

5 stars for the golf, lower rating due to the other stuff

Nice compact course
Water, water everywhere even in some of the bunkers but a nice course, good facilities, driving net, chipping area and putting green, friendly staff and well looked after.

Just how many people can you fit on a golf course
Just how many people can you fit on a golf course. Ask Salgardos.

Nice course with reasonable greeens (early May 22). Water all round to give your golf balls a cushioned landing.

Nice clubhouse with a freaky big net to practice before a round.

All the good is offset by waiting for the group in front while feeling guilty for the group behind.

Went out at 2pm and first 9 holes took 2 and a half hours.

Thankfully the course got quieter later in the day and it was only 2 and a bit hours fir the second nine.

Walkable and well maintained
Busy course that has a strict 2 hour per 9 hole policy. The course is well maintained and the staff is polite. Challenging but if you keep your ball in play, you can have birdie opportunities. Lots of water in play. Walkable and flat the course has a Florida feel. Greens could be faster. Overall, a fun experience to spend four hours.

Played this may 2022 when there was a large society booked and was therefore paired up with 2 others to make a 4 ball and feared how long it would take. Initial few holes were slow but it sped up quite quickly and we completed a 4 ball in 4 hours 15. The fairways seemed a little overplayed but the greens were very good condition and whilst a couple of holes only require irons of tees, there are plenty of long holes, especially the back nine. Lots of water and lots of shouts of 'fore' as it is quite enclosed and flat and a stroke saver would have helped, but there are some pretty decent holes and it exceeded my initial expectations. As a comparison, probably better than laguna but not quite as good as millennium but at 70 euros if you can get a deal, worth a go.

Course in great condition. Greens very true. Overall very good experience. However rental clubs are a little dated. Nike Vapor fly 2015. But useable and still a great day.

Great course
A wonderful course on the coast that always provides the last day’s rounds for my friend and me. There is plenty of water so challenging for people playing wayward shots, and has been very expensive for both of us on balls. Nevertheless we would not fail to make a visit here every year we come

Recent Portugal trip to Salgados golf club
The Salgados course was in good condition, the weather was excellent with breeze coming off the sea for the back 9

All in all a great day with friends, no pressure from the course or other golfers, definitely recommend the course with some challenging holes and a fair few water hazards 👍👍

Not Great
Course was very busy and in poor condition. Fairways were terrible. The club house was very uninviting and lacked any atmosphere.
Glyn Hughes from United Kingdom

Course was in the best condition we have ever played on it. Great greens quick and true, fairways and bunkers very tidy.

Staff in shop and caddy very polite and helpful..

Nice clubhouse friendly staff recomend this course to anyone.

Worth for the price
Well, not the best place at the Algarve but for the price it was worth playing. The driving range ist strange as you have to use your own balls and hit into a net.

Leider werden zuviel 4er Flights auf die Runde geschickt. 4,5 bis 5 Stunden Spielzeit sind für diesen Platz einfach zu viel

No fun at all…
Bland course that does not provide a great experience. All the flags had blown over when we went as the first ball of the day. Completely destroyed the feeling and the course feels like one of the courses to avoid playing.
Mattia from Portugal

No droning range only a net, long wait at desk (the secretary was at the bar and came without hurry).

The course is nice but nothing special

Nice course, but not too challenging. play was slow due to certain pairings having photo sessions on the fairway in front of us. Service was very good and price reasonable.

Flatest of the Algarve courses
One of the flatest Algarve course with likely the most water hazards. Be prepared to hit it straight or bring extra balls. Easy to walk course

Plenty of water!
The course was in excellent condition. As it was coming into high season it was expectedly busy, big thanks to the starter who started us early when a gap arrived. Play was quite slow at the end so skipped the last two holes. Enjoyed the day and would play here again

Good value
Good value green fees with buggies included, very nice clubhouse and easy free flowing course. A lot of water but don't let that put you off as its only a one shot drop from a water hazard and not 2!lol Nice predictable greens, nothing too difficult. Only issue we found was no driving range and lady on the pro shop desk couldn't have been more disinterested in serving customers and utterly miserable.

George from Portugal

Nice and flat
Well kept course with lot’s of water but pretty wide fairways.

Did find the lay out a little bit boring but again fun to play.

Could be a pretty tough course when windy but I was lucky to play it with just a light breeze.

Outstanding course
Had a few games and loved every hole.

Beautiful course and well layed out, no issues with finding the next tee box!

Excellent facilities and very friendly staff.

Great chipping and putting.g green but the driving net area is a fantastic size and helps get ride of the 1st tee slice!

Slow players will definitely be an issue though as I asked to play through a 3 ball who refused twice, causing a long bottleneck behind .

Fun enjoyable course even in 30mph Winds. Greens were in fantastic condition however some of the fairways and tee boxes needed better maintaining

Good value for a course in good condition
Greens were in great condition. Fairways were generally good but had some spots that need some work. The golf carts (buggies) and rental clubs were adequate, but not current. Staff was welcoming and helpful. Generally good experience. The course is interesting but there's nothing spectacular. Lots of water. It's target golf.

A suggestion !
Sure would be nice if these websites posted the outline of each hole with showing distances to sand traps, water to green. Some have even drone videos at least in Netherlands how about it for this golfers 'paradise'
Craig from United Kingdom

Great course
Fantastic course, not the longest. You need to plot your way round and often the stiff breeze will play a factor and make you think about your club selection. Well worth playing.

Beware of water
Front 9 not too challenging but back 9 sucks a lot of balls in the water hazards, otherwise nice course

One of my favourite courses
My friend and I have played here every year for the last 4 years and do not hesitate to go back each time. It is one of our favourites. The course itself is very challenging and, for me personally, very hungry in terms of balls! It’s also quite open and next to the sea, albeit not links, so wind is definitely a factor. The greens were mostly true but quick, so all-in-all sensible golf is the way forward with this course. The club house staff are very friendly and helpful, there is a really good atmosphere.

Jim from Portugal

Sweet course and fair challenge .
I like the course. Even though there is a lot of water. Not hilly like many if the courses around Vilamora and reasonably priced, unlike those same courses. They would get more players if they weren't so in love with themselves. Salgado offers the same challanges but doesn't fleece you when charging for the play. Salgado is always on our short list of courses we play.
Ian from United Kingdom
on Tue, 6th Oct 2020
Late round in the sun.
Good value as a single with a buggy after 4. Round in under two and a half hours as the course was quiet. Good condition and a lot of water to gobble up errant shots. I nearly ran out. Flat but enough to keep you interested. Staff efficient and helpful.

Great course
Great course, lots of water, and the fairways were great and greens superb and true. Very reasonable for both green fee and club hire. Would definitely play here again.

Salgados ... again!
Can't get enough of this course, so much fun! Water everywhere, and there is usually a stiff breeze coming in from the coast which is a couple of hundred yards from the course, so all in all a great challenge. If you hit the ball straight you should score well. If not, well you can always go for a paddle.

Along with VDL Ocean this is one of my favourite courses on the Algarve.

Course in great condition early Sept-20. The greens had been spiked and sanded (but not butchered) a week or two before but were great to putt on.

Edward from United Kingdom

Great clubhouse!
Loved the course, quite open considering how much water is about. Greens slow
