Great Course but not really challenging
2nd time I have played here. Lovely course but a but too flat and boring for me after 2nd round. Staff friendly and helpful. Food is exceptional.

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.

Great course
We enjoyed the golf course which is very well maintained. All holes are surrounded with water which make it special. Greenfee is correct

Great greens almost rude to miss from 6 ft. Two tough par 5's against wind even off yellows.

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.

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.

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

Very good, greens could be better
Beautiful course, very good fairways. Challenging but fun, with really good clubs rental. Only issue was the greens were all top layered with sand, which wasn’t ideal.

Sorry to say....
This is an easy course to play and to walk. no undulation at all. Flat as a pancake. t-boxes in poor condition. fairways not much better. Greens fairly okay. overall unlikely to play the course again.

Put aside that the course was a little bit dry, we had a great experience. Some tee areas was not that good, but the greens was good and challenging.

Spoilt by the weather
Course condition was fine and staff helpful and efficient. Round was at a reasonable pace. Food service a little slow. You have to be able to hit it straight . Had to stop at half way in view of the unforecasted storms but that’s not the golf course’s fault!

Excellent course and facilities. Lots of water and some long holes. Very flat course but would recommend buggies. Have loads there.
Colin from United Kingdom

Plain and boring
Long and flat the only interest is the water but that is not too hard to navigate. Staff in bar area slow and unfriendly.

practice facilities poor with one large driving net, chipping area in need or serious repair

Andy Cutler from United Kingdom
on Mon, 21st Oct 2019
Mr Cutler
Second time round this course this year, in May the fairways were much better. But after a summer of buggies charging around on an easily walkable course, the wear and tear is now showing.

Still a fun course to play and never lost a ball, so I beat the water this time.

Gerard from Portugal

Very Enjoyable. Good test of golf. Lots of water and palms. Not for high

handicap golfers.

Mike from United Kingdom
on Fri, 4th Oct 2019
Hopeful but disappointing
Course ok and picturesque but golf was spoiled by playing in a 3-ball behind a large(50 ) society that reduced the round to over 5.5 hours. Post-round, 1 person serving refreshments couldn’t cope with the number of drinkers so after ordering a meal, I was told they had to stop serving food to focus on the bar. Left thirsty and hungry.

Relaxing golf
Relaxing course if you can stay out the water, and there is a lot of water to avoid. The course was in good condition. Suitable for all.

Starter was friendly and helpful and equipment was in good order.

club de golf au milieu de nul part
Le tracé est sympathique ,terrain et green de bonne qualité, accueil correct ; Mais les alentours du club house font vraiment pitié plusieurs chantiers abondonnés...
Philip from United Kingdom
on Sat, 21st Sep 2019
Very good but could be first class
Good design, well planned, water hazards in play but a fair course for good golf. Greens pitted with so many pitchmarks, reflecting on visitors lack of etiquette rather than course maintenance. Bunkers were poor quality generally and course conditioning could be improved given still growing weather. A very nice course however, worth a visit.
Rob from Portugal
on Fri, 20th Sep 2019
Ok if you like water
Far too much water hazard, felt like every shot could go in the drink. More water than fairway with half decent shots being punished. Course was in good condition but far too busy, having to wait 10 mins on each tee, which was also probably due too the amount of balls going in the water. I'd say you have to play off single figures to stand any chance of enjoying course. Much better courses in the Algarve.

Salgados golf course review
Great American style course with lots of challenging holes with water on quite a few holes. Flat course but you need to be able to keep the Ball in play to score. Fast greens but lovely to putt on. A course you have to think your way around. Good short game area and putting greens. No driving range but there is a great practice net where you can warm up your swing. Good bar and restaurant.

Good condition. Mix of challenging and more gentle holes. Par 5 6th the standout. Staff helpful. Perfect holiday golf. And value for money versus ‘big name’ courses in the area.

Review Salgados, 3/9/19, 8 players
Course itself was a great design but over watered. Staff leave a lot to be desired. Drink / food buggy drove passed us at speed 4 separate times before we could flag him down. Bar service is terrible, which was the same when we last played 2 years ago. No table service, tables not cleared and bar not staffed. Staff sat on phones and when trying to place an order for 8 drinks say that might take a while.

Nice relaxing round
Decent course. Lots of water, but pretty much zero rough and very few bunkers. A nice breeze off the coast, so not too hot. I played by myself at 1pm and walked with a trolley (6 euros) - managed to get round in 2 hours 45 mins. The course was really quiet at that time.
Brent from United Kingdom

Great club house, super course on great condition. Open enough and loads of water in play. Great 6th hole. Greens flatter than most around but soft and accessible with good approach shots.

Tony from United Kingdom

The course was in great condition. This was one of the cheaper courses, so the others must be brilliant. There are some tough holes and many with water, so plenty of balls needed for us high handicappers. Hire clubs were Nike and in good condition. Food in the bar afterwards was good and cheap.

Beautiful Course
Had a great round at Salgados golf course. The course was well maintained and the greens were excellent. No major complaints, just a suggestion, would be good to have a starter to ensure people tee off at the correct time and course has good spacing. Overall, I really enjoyed the round and without question would play at Salgados again!
Grzegorz from Poland

Very nice looking course with many palms and a lot of water everywhere. With a strong wind from the ocean which is very close can be quite demanding. Unfortunately no view to the ocean from the course. Nice personnel, course in good condition, with soft greens.

Made 2 birdies and two ”9” :))
The course was friendly to play, full of water hazards and has low speed greens. The staff was very friendly, no problem to have children in buggy.

Best Course west of Vilamoura!
Water surrounds many of the holes but the course is very well laid out and both the fairways / greens are in very good shape. Greens are quick but will hold a ball with spin.

Excellent clubhouse and good food in the restaurant.

Salgados Golf Review 12 Handicap.
Outstanding course..... not overly difficult but easy to get out of position and then the course becomes challenging.

Play what you can see and don’t be greedy and you’ll get round the course safely and to your handicap. Take the risks and you can easily shoot under handicap but be warned take the risk and it doesn’t pay off you can easily have high number on your scorecard.

Weekend of Golf at the Salgados.
For a holiday golf course and with the feedback from our group its a Five Star Course. The staff all very helpful, friendly and the booking process really straight forward. We were they in March and it was busy but the course moved really nicely. The course its self isn't as hard as advertised but you need to take it seriously or you could be in a world of pain (Our handicap spread is 9-23). Our scoring was spread between 38 - 28 over two days. Greens very tricky but fair. Would recommend the whole experience and we are planning to return next year.

Nice course with a lot of water!

Take extra balls with you.

The driving range was very poor for such a beautiful club. You have to hit own balls in the net with 5 other players.
