Salgados Golf
Course in very good condition even after the heavy rain.

Couple of minor bad points, .while playing behind 2 members they were VERY slow, I had to wait at every green and tee box, when I asked to play through I was met with verbal abuse and hand gestures, thankfully they only played 9 holes,

2. When i reached the 10 tee box, again had to wait, as they let players start their round there, got stuck behind 3 four balls. But everything else was good.

Hi Michael, is Salgados a walkable course or is a buggy required?

Wasserplatz Salgados
Der Platz ist in gutem Zustand, bis auf die Grüns. Diese sind sehr holprig, vermutlich durch die vielen nicht ausgebesserten Pitchmarken. Durch das viele Wasser sollte man mit einer Menge Bälle ausgestattet sein. Driving Range ist nicht vorhanden, die eigenen Bälle können in ein Netz geschlagen werden. Die Natur abseits der Fairways ist eine Augenweide mit vielen verschiedenen Vögeln.

Nice course, well maintained with a good variety of holes. Played 18-holes in 4hr which was welcome. Only disappointment with the rental clubs which were old and of very poor quality. Club administrators and marshals we excellent. Would not hesitate to return and play the course again.

A good, fun, fairly challenging course with all the water, but way too busy! Lots of 5-6 balls allowed to play, large number of groups all turning up with a 12pm tee time and just joining a big queue for the 1st. Once going it was OK, but not well organised and the Marshalls didn’t appear to want to do anything about it.

Salgado was worth itì
Best course of the three.

Played in 4 hours. Teeing off around 9am

Poor rental clubs cost me today to whippy
3 stars for the course especially the greens in excellent condition. Club hire poor a set if spalding clubs most people were getting nike or decent brand. Other issue booked a one ball had to play with 3 others as course was busy but great set of lads on their first golf holiday

Our day on the links
Tough but fun course, a low slope rating for some unknown reason. Weather was great, but wish we saw the beverage cart more often (but maybe that is us). We rented the clubs, but need to buy the balls and tees. Clubs are all the same length.

Great Course, poor loan clubs
On arrival we checked in and collected the buggy and loan clubs quickly. The loan clubs were very disappointing. They were a mix of brands mainly Nike clubs from circa 2000 , irons had graphite and steel shafts. The course was difficult with water along the fairways. It was very windy which added to the difficulty. The course was in fabulous condition. Loved the par 5 sixth. Would definitely play again but not hire the golf clubs from the course.

With the dry weather here in Algarve, the course was in much better condition then I was expecting.

Congratulations to the green keeper and its staff

Slow plat Solgados
I have played here before and the course is just ok, however it was packed with what I Will described as non golfers so the round took in excess of 5hrs to play.

I would describe the course as a very average municipal venue.

I will not be rushing back

twilight in Nau courses
I have booked three tee times on Salgados, Morgado and Alamos , in twilight with your site.

it was not specified that it was no longer possible to play after 8 p.m

it is a bit of a shame, because we weren't able to do the entire course

Greg from United Kingdom

Water everywhere
Course was in average condition.

Lots of water to loose balls but a good test of golf.

Great views and fairly flat course to walk.

Difficult course even harder my a cross wind. Saturday was a busy day so time around the front nine was slow. Back nine we had the course to ourselves.

A real challenge
Good course , lots of challenges and when the wind is blowing off the sea it’s very difficult . Good greens and general condition is very good given the lack of rain

Beautiful course, great layout. very friendly staff. Plenty of water to challenge you with tee shots and approach shots.

We hired clubs and they was ok, (Nike clubs).

Great round of golf in very strong winds
Course is in great shape. It played quickly. The greens were very good shape and rolled smoothly. Unfortunately it was very windy today but still a good day. It's a flat course that is very forgiving. The front 9 has some very long holes.
Rolf from United States

3 rd visit and great as always...slow play was my only criticism this time round but i half expect that everywhere this time of year
John from United States

Impressed with the course, disappointed we weren't aloud to play the last 2 holes
Sylvia from Netherlands

Room for improvement on the organisational side
Way too busy... It's simply not okay to have a flight every five minutes, without any handicap requirements, and then just keep it going. Took as just under five hours... Also, the absence of a driving range... The course itself is very nice and challenging though so definitely worth a visit.

Druk en geld beluste baan
We zijn heel erg teleurgesteld.

Hebben 172 euro betaald en 18 holes staan wachten op een groep voor ons die door de baan heen les kreeg

Om te huilen

Weg geld

Good course
Nice course , lots of water!! Tee offs need attention and rental clubs need to be updated! Overall good day on the course!

Greens were in great shape, Tee boxes and fairways need some care.

Water, water, water!!!!!!
Played in February after there had been a large amount of rain over night which made conditions soft. Some interesting holes that really required you to think your way around to avoid the water. The course was very flat.
Joseph from Portugal
on Thu, 9th Feb 2023
Course was challenging and overall in very good condition. Staff were very helpful and friendly. They even lent us a range finder so we could take our distance in yards. Really the only complaint was the rental clubs. They were older models and not even cleaned. My driver had something loose in the head and the shaft.

All and all it was a good experience.

Daniëlle from Portugal

Nice course. Beautiful setting
Beautiful surrounding. Very flat. No buggy needed. Fast green. Being straight ov the tee makes your round of golf very pleasant 😃

A trial with nature
A challenging course with a lot of water hazards and the day i played a brisk breeze blowing in off the sea. Its layout and location make the beach side course unique and its landscaped tree lioned holes add extra spice to the holes. I have to say the staff were excellent and the tee times were arranged perfectly to avoid hold ups on the course. A very enjoyable day and we will be back.

Great course. Clubhouse and welcome were top class with a quick check-in and cart and clubs ready to go. Course was in great condition with high quality fairway and greens.

Challenging, Course but waste of Drinking Hackers
Well presented and challenging.

Greens pretty good, given the ‘traffic’.

Some very poor golfers with less than satisfactory etiquette on the course. I would have been upset if I had been asked to share a round with them.

10 out of 10
Very good set up at the club house straight in, golf cart and clubs and onto the Grange, nets and putting green then onto the course! Which is in fantastic condition 10 out of 10 for me!
Phil Jones from Portugal

Good, but not great!
Cons -

1. hire clubs are dross. Miss match set sling together.

2. Woman handing out buggies/clubs was miserable

3. Course a little scruffy in some areas


1. It’s a really enjoyable course with some nice holes

2. It is a proper holiday golfers course. The marketing hook to get you to play is “oohh look at all this water”, when in reality, it’s never really in play apart from a short par 3 early on the back 9 which is all over water. The course is very generous off the tee, so you’ll have to be pretty wild to lose a load of balls

3. Because it’s so generous off the tee, you play a lot of shots/2nd shots off the fairway and even when you stray it’s not too penal. Couple this with big greens (although they are pretty undulating) - you can score well, which also makes you feel good coming off the course!

4. It was really, really busy with huge groups going out, but the pace of play was actually good and I got around in 4hrs having teed off at 8.40am

5. Pace of play is helped by the fact it’s hard to lose your ball so people aren’t searching. The only trouble is water, so if you’re in it, it’s drop and go.

Very slow round golfers playing who weren't club members had no handicap cert. Greens not in good condition many scuff marks and left pitch marks.

Salgado golf
Greens are cord and very sandy. Clubhouse lacks a bit of atmosphere. Facilities were good however no choice in club hire all regular shaft stiffness. Were told someone was joining our 3 ball and instead he went out on his own before us and we were playing behind 1 person all through the round. Beer was good and cheap and the coolers were useful, could of done with a cart on the course at times far away from club house for both bathrooms and drinks.
Andrew from United Kingdom

Great experience but rather 'samey' af
Not really a links course, as advertised but a great test with plenty of water.

Greens very slow due to aeration work....but it has to be done sometime!

Nearby wildlife resort a plus.

ANDREW from United Kingdom
on Mon, 19th Sep 2022
Decent layout to course and very flat but condition of tees and greens not great due to drought and amount of use it’s had this season. Tees and greens scabby with lots of pitch mark damage and lack of water. Luckily two partners were regulars and showed us the way. Lots of water hazards which due to the drought were mainly mud.
Martin from United Kingdom

Fun course requiring careful club/shot selection
Fun course, with plenty of variety in holes. Unfortunately the greens had recently been treated, so putting surfaces were poor. Well organised course, but no driving range only a large net and practice chipping and putting areas. Would be a tough course on a very windy day, given there’s water on many holes.
John from United Kingdom

Flat with Water
This course has not suffered in the same ways as others in the area and as such is busy, I mean very busy with late groups of playing teeing off from both the 1 st and 10 tee.

With so many players on the course daily as you would expect it is showing signs of wear.

The course is the flattish I have played in the area with a number of dog legs and water the protection of the green.

Good value for money but be warned it’s busy

Nice course in very good condition. Lot of water, what it makes necessary to play precisely. A nice laguna course.

Birdie time..
I played 2 rounds here in August 2022,what a wonderful course.

Good narrow fairways, tests your wit at times with all the water.

The greens were in great condition.

Get out there and get a few birdies... Bravo

Excellent service
It’s a must if you enjoy playing golf.

For the price you can’t go wrong.

Nothing like great golf(when you play well) great weather and a few beers after.

The service from start to finish was excellent.

Very much a resort course, nothing amazing but great for beginners as it was very flat and open. Good value for money.
Stewart from Portugal

Lovely course - trickier than it might seem
Resort style course with a lot of water hazards. Course is trickier than it may look as many holes require a drive in the right place or even taking less than the big stick. Greens very receptive and pure, running at a good speed.

Family golf at Salgados.
Warm welcome, expertly organised thank you. Information we required was on the card, found our way round by following the buggy path. Greens quite slow and not in the best condition is our only criticism. Lovely staff, good after golf snack, reasonably priced. Unfortunately didn’t see expected buggy bar !
Dougie from Portugal

Two becomes four
Course was generally in excellent conditions. I wish people would take time to repair pitch marks on the green.

My main criticism was specifically booking a two ball tee time at 08:00 we got paired with another two ball. I did not get what I paid for!

Very good course lots of tricky holes and lots of water. Service not the greatest (no Ice in buggies, nobody driving the course with drinks and food) but the course is very good.

Excellent course
Great course, really enjoyed it. Lots of water but fairways are wide enough to give you a chance of staying out of it. I enjoyed the way you have to plot your way around. You can’t just hit driver every hole, you have to think about it. Greens were supers too. Would definitely play here again!

Course is great for holiday golf, I had the green fee, buggy and club hire deal. A few holes you needed to know where to lay up but course is in good condition greens are lovely. The staff are friendly and the beer is cold after a round in July
