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.

Enjoyed my golf course quite tricky due to the wind disappointed with greens which had been hollow cored.

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.

Lovely course. Great facilities and staff were friendly and helpful. My only disappointment was having to play on my own and not being paired up with anyone else.

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.

We had to come in after 9 holes on Tuesday because the course was so slow.

Que d'eau, que d'eau !
Que d'eau que d'eau !! En bord de mer, le vent joue donc un grand rôle. Parcours plat, mais précision requise, ou un bon stock de balles !!

Great Course albeit the wind played a little into the hands of the handicap we didn't have. The course was in great condition and we will certainly be playing it again.

Absolutely beautiful course. Very fast greens and good selection of challenging holes.

Only negative couldn't find anyone to get our club deposit back at the end!

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.

We took a buggy as Well despite à flat course. The design is Nice and the holes were taff because of the water every where.good service on the courses but no toilettes.

Schöne Runde einem gepflegten Platz
Schöne Runde auf einem sehr gut gepflegten Platz. Wenig los, so dass man ganz entspannt spielen könnte.

Schnelle Grüns und viel Wasser hat uns ordentlich gefördert.

Die Leihschläger waren in sehr guten Zustand. Sehr gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis.

Salgados Course Conditions
Windy but course in very good condition including greens. Pace of play was great. Less than 3-1/2 with groups walking in front. Lots of water in play if not hitting accurately Played poorly & lost 6 balls but enjoyed the course, fast play & round overall
Thomas from Portugal

In the Dunes..
The name Salgados Dunes is correct, some spectacular views. The Course was in perfect condition and is playable for Players of all handicaps. We had a package of Greenfee, cart and clubs for a very reasonable price. Staff was friendly and helpful. Come, play and see for yourself!

Great course for mid handicaps.
Amazing layout among saltwater lagoons, behind the sand dunes. I played over New Year holiday for the first time in years, but this course is an old friend. Excellent condition. This is a very playable course for mid handicaps who can keep the ball in play. Higher handicappers will suffer as a lot of water to catch wayward shots, and can get brutal if the wind is up, as it often is here on the coast. Flat and no long walks between tees, so buggy not necessary. Can get round in 3 and a half hours no problem if course isn't busy.

Poor course and management
Poor course run by unprofessional people booked buggies no buggies was lucky to get a trolly totally over crowded 2 mins between tee times took over 5 and gals hours to play no lockers had to leave gear behind reception book another course

Second visit
Golf reception was very very poor. No communication., no interaction . We were not really welcome. Even though we had paid in advance! We only found out from caddy master we had been doubled booked. The Starters were brilliant. Polite and very pro active.

Usual problem - tee times pushed too close together.

Salgados golf .
I have played this a number of times and always enjoy , it is a test of golf. One sore point is the beer buggy doesn't come round enough.

Very enjoyable day and I would play it again.

Excellent & Challenging course
Excellent course. Challenging but a great design. And the previous reviewer who suggested you’ll need plenty of balls wasn’t wrong! Great service too. Will be returning again

Nice course with tough but fair greens, disappointed to be put with 2 strangers from Sweden who have different rules of etiquette than us..

Started on the 10th but ran smoothly..

Take plenty of balls.. I only lost 3 but was lucky

Not recommended
It was the first time that we played the course and it will definitely be the last.

Massively over subscribed, rude staff and a manufactured plastic course with no character at all.

I now know why is a cheaper than the other courses, It was definately a case of penny wise and pound foolish.

Alan from United Kingdom

Salgados. Great fun!
Some short holes, some long, but on nearly all there are water hazards!

I have played this twice and look forward to playing it again. The best greens on the Algarve for me.

Good course but overwatering is a problem
This course has water everywhere even on the fairways but is a great test. Completely flat but well designed and reasonably open if you can avoid the lakes. We played tee time 0944 and the course was very wet indeed due to heavy watering. Enjoyed it but not in my top ten. V busy but well controlled balls will be flying around a bit so keep your eyes open. Good clubhouse attached to Nau hotels so amenities very good. Well worth playing good situation.

Great course staff very friendly well organised only had to wait at the 10th lots of water so lost a few balls will certainly play it again

Delayed start due to no buggies being available even though pre booked.

Couse in good condition but very slow round of 5 hours.

on Sun, 23rd Sep 2018
I was really looking forward to playing this course, however the staff really let this place down. Very unfriendly and rude. Course is OK but for ladies the water challenge is basically non existent as all the T boxes are positioned away from the water. Not one I would play again.

Good interesting course
The course is an interting Challenge for accurate play and in a lovely Sletting near the coast. Fairways nand Greens were good but tee require a bit of attention .

Shame about the service
Enjoyed the round, a bit tight , unfortunately spoiled by the clubhouse staff who seemed to have had a personality bypass, attitude of waitress was shocking.

Really good value for money
Really good value for money, 115€. For 2 players and a buggy. Shows ,you get a little more for your money when you drive out a bit from vilamoura ,

Greens were very good , loads a water around which makes it more fun. Worth the trip

Easy-going golf. Not over challenging. Nice.
Really enjoyed this course but its not as designed as others. Quite forgiving by course to suit the highest handicaps. Average to good conditions.

Nice course, in good condition, many different layouts for holes, staff was friendly and the clubs we rented better than average. Pace of play was quick and this is a solid value for the price.
Paul from United Kingdom
on Mon, 13th Aug 2018
Played today with my son. I was quiet disappointed. There is a net for 'drivibg' range where you hut your own balls, along with a scabby chipping area.

The Nike hire clubs where average at best along with many of the tees.

Water on virtually every hole makes it almost a joke with being adjacent sea and windy. My handicap is 6BTW.

Would not return, sorry.

Excellent round at sunny Salgados!
Excellent course with lots of fair holes rewarding good shots.

Good course for a mixed group of golfers, some single figure handicaps and some 'once-a-year-golfers'. Greens were excellent too!

Of particular mention is the admin staff, outstanding customer service and organisation for a group of 11 guys. Flawless!

Great Course
A friend and I booked Salgados through Algarve Golf during our holiday and were very impressed with the service from both companies. This was only my 4th round of golf so I did find the water challenging but still enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful and the course was in great condition.

We had no equipment with us at all but got a great deal for 18 holes, a buggy and 2 sets of clubs.

Enjoy the course very windy - time between tees needs to be reviewed too many players out and disappointed that on the 10 hole another 2 ball were introduced slowing play down even further. Starter friendly can’t say the same for receptionist. Overall good experience would come again
Conor from United Kingdom
on Tue, 7th Aug 2018
Good but could be better
Great course and very challenging but the quality of clubs was very poor. Hadn't even been cleaned from their previous use and we weren't even provided with free golf tee's which is a bit stingey. Would play it again though but only with my own clubs.

Golf at Salgados - very worthwhile.
Course was in excellent condition. Arrangements for picking up clubs and buggies were very straightforward. The reception desk was very unfriendly and the resort should examine this as we are not the first group to comment on this. Overall though a very enjoyable days golf.

Great experience!
Tough course, especially when the wind picks up. Beautiful layout with people working around the clock to maintain the high level of quality seen throughout. The only negatives I'd find in Salgados is that there were a couple of flooded bunkers which were near enough impossible to play out of. Another is the greens which were of a poorer quality when compared to the perfect fairways.

Overall an awesome experience and will definitely play again.

A challenging course. Well presented. Water for a large number of the holes not always in line of play but to the sides. Well worth a visit.

A great test, good mix of long and short holes, a lot of dog legs but fairways wide but beware, water is every where... take plenty of balls!!

Salgados June 2018
Very challenging course spoilt as only the front 9 was open, we played it twice which was ok but would have liked to do all 18. The par 5's are really tough holes and worth their stroke indexes of 1 and 3. Will go back next year looking forward to playing the full course.

martin Pollard from United Kingdom
on Tue, 12th Jun 2018
Course lived up to our expectations. Some tight tee off positions and water on 17 holes. Front nine more difficult than back nine in our opinion. Hole 2 is a real tester par 5 with some tight fairways. You really have to be pretty straight and accurate. Very enjoyable experience. Ladies have a 1000m shorter course than men off the yellow tees. Needless to say the wife won our friendly match

Aidan from Ireland

Nice course 😎
Nice course , in good condition. Plays easy off yellows , worth playing off whites for the extra challenge. A bit of a pain that the starter starts people off the 10th tee aswell as the first. Leads to congestion on the 10th which can disrupt your round.
Richard from United Kingdom
on Sun, 10th Jun 2018
Beautiful course, lots of water. Fairways quite wide and forgiving when there isn't a water obstacle

Staff throughout the course are incredibly rude. Only the barman was polite.

Nice course shame about the staff and pace of play
Very nice course but very slow. Was regularly being pestered and threatened by a member of the course staff/starter who had the worst attitude I have ever encountered on a golf course. This despite our group being held up on every shot. 5 hour round versus a sub 4 hour 18 holes the next day on another course proves that it wasn't us being slow.
Brian from United Kingdom

Decent but not the best
Decent but too flat for me. Very busy and it always felt a bit rushed. Looked even busier at lunchtime.
