Great Course in great nick.
One of our favourite courses this year. Some great holes and all in marvellous condition, especially the greens. Credit to the green keeping staff. Well done. This year was the first time we have oplayed here since the course and club house were changed. Great result

Played a twilight round on 14 Nov. Managed 14 holes for €45 on a course in good condition considering the drought conditions earlier in the year. Greens were excellent. Welcome from Caddymaster was very good but lady in shop was obviously having an off day!

Course is nice. Nice surroundings and you can easily walk. Unfortunatly play was extremely slow. We had to wait like 10-15 min on every hole.

Johnny at Silves
4 of us greatly enjoyed playing Silves, which is in excellent condition. Good lunch beforehand and delightful staff looking after us. We will definitely play there again.

Play Somewhere Else.
I would strongly recommend anyone considering playing here to not do so. After being told to come back closer to our tee time in order to hire buggies, we were then informed there were none available. Out on the course we walked in after 9 holes as it had taken 3 hours! No course marshal, and no interest from anybody in the professional shop when we explained the situation. Awful experience.

worth a return
Lush ( which made a change ) and the recent course changes, cub house and other improvements make it worth a visit ( eclipsing Palmares and Morgado for example which had gone downhill

Très bon parcours de golf
Très bien entretenu. Staff professionnel est très gentil. A refaire sûrement. C’est l’un des meilleurs parcours de golf de l’Algarve.

Though Tough Summer conditions nice to play

Service staff extremely friendly

We will come back

Silves Golf in July
Great course, ok condition, quite long transitions. Unfortunately a factory near by smoked heavily and the direction of the wind brought thick smoke with burning smell into the course (holes 5 - 11). Perhaps we were just unlucky that morning.
John from Ireland
on Thu, 29th Jun 2023
Great course apart from the smoke
Great course but we were smothered with smoke for 6 holes on the front 9 from the adjoining factory so quite unhealthy and very unpleasant. Lucky I had a mask with me but the smoke still got through. Our clothes still smelled of smoke when we got back to our lodgings.
Karl from United Kingdom

Silves was a joy to play, it was everyone favourite course of the 4 we played. We will definitely be going back there next June.
Philipp from Portugal
on Tue, 27th Jun 2023
Not worth the costs
Unfortunately we cannot rate this course too high. Nevertheless, we start with the positive parts:

- great greens, extremely difficult, but in very good condition

- nice course in general

Negative parts:

- unfortunately all the staff (including starter, ladies at the entrance, bartenders) was not friendly, not helpful and even impatiently)

- at the first 9 holes there was constantly a tough smell and smoke coming from a factory

- fairways were not in a perfect condition

- there is NO driving range, one putting green is in a bad condition

—> in general the course is OK but it is definitely not worse the price in comparison to other (close around!) courses. We would not come here again.

Always good to play Silves
Always a favourite of mine.

Course was in good condition and very little people so no waiting on each hole.

Clubhouse was lovely but quiet.

I played several times at the Silves cours bat i never found one secretary so unfreindly and surly than i found on Sunday 26 March.

Luckily the course was in good condition.

Nice day in Silves
Greens were in very nice condition. Interesting layout and very good value with the twilight rates.
Robert from Portugal
on Fri, 10th Mar 2023
Best value to date.
A really nice course; makes up for lack of length with being a little tight. Holes allllay out in front of you with a minimum of blind shots. Conditions were good. Our best Algarve golf experience to date!!
Una Moroney from Ireland

A lovely course. Wide fairways. In very good condition. We enjoyed our round. Disappointed there was no driving range as advertised on website.

tee time to late
Course good. However, our tee time (at 14.46) was too late given that there were 2 fourballs ahead of us who were very slow.

We attempted to play the last 3 holes in total darkness but with little success.

Greg from United Kingdom
on Fri, 28th Oct 2022
greta course as ever
Course was in a great condition and as ever thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.

We managed to play 18 holes with our twilight time however there were long waits on the back nine.

RACHEL from United Kingdom

Lovely location, good condition. Nice club house. No range and probably not enough buggies.

enjoyable golf
course in good condition, pity about the smoke from the cork factory
Alistair from United Kingdom
on Sun, 2nd Oct 2022
East course but awful slow play
A fairly short course so suitable for higher handicappers but dreadfully slow pace of play and industrial factory nearby spewing out toxic smoke fumes across the course very unsightly and off putting.

We gave up after 13 holes having taken nearly 4 hours to that point due to slow play in front.

Nice club house.

Booking chaos - great golf though.
There was a mix up with the booking, the email confirmation showed the correct date but the PDF voucher was incorrect. Fortunately there was an alternative T time available so we still got to play. Course generally in very good condition with only a couple of greens needing closer attention. Some challenging holes with big elevation changes, wide fairways so driver can be used without fear. I hope to play it again one day.

Silves Golf Course
This was the first time I have played this course and it was very good. I have played most of the golf courses in the Algarve and this would be in my top 10.

Off the course I would suggest that the prices in the clubhouse are too high. I was at the old course the following day and ordered a large coke Zero. it was 3.5euros. A medium (small in my view) coke Zero at Silves was 5 euros.

Best condition I have seen the course in years Greens very good

Thoroughly enjoyed our time there … course was in good condition apart from the odd green. However this did not spoil our enjoyment. Special mention to Fatima in the clubhouse who was beyond helpful and cheery

Course great but 19 th hole closed early
Course is lovely. Tee time was 2.42 and course was quiet so no pressure from behind. Beautiful club house BUT very disappointed as when finished our round at 6.20 pm and went in for a drink and sit on the deck to enjoy the view we were told they had closed the bar early (not meant to close till 7 pm) as the staff had to go and work at the Gramacho course.
Erik from United States

Great course …
Course is great. I like the views. I’m afraid the course will be ruined by all real estate developments that are planned. The staff is fantastic. The greens consistent. Compared with a few years ago the course got easier due to cleaning up a lot of the rough.

I like Silves. After my relocation to The Algarve later this year, I join either Silves or Espiche as my home course.

Robert from Portugal

Family Golf round
Lovely round at Silves. Club house staff friendly, the best we have experienced in the area and very welcoming. Challenging course with some excellent holes. The 12th in particular a specially well designed hole and picturesque. We look forward to playing there again on our next visit to the Algarve.
Douglas from Portugal

We arrived 30 mins before our tee off time the course was fully booked and they had no details of our booking. We showed them all of the booking vouchers and confirmation of payment. After some time a manager turned up and spoke to someone on the phone and they arranged for us to play. In the end It was all a rather rushed experience the course was clearly overwhelmed with too many people and was a long day of queues
Tim from United Kingdom

A lovely Course
Great course in a lovely setting. A course that suite us a relative beginners but also a challenge for low handicappers. Staff were really friendly and helpful and there is a really nice bar and restaurant facility. The course was also great for spotting local bird life. Our only slight frustration was that the bar did close about 19.00 so was not open for people who were starting on twilight tee times.

Nice Course
Great course although finishing holes a little disappointing.
Arie from Portugal

Compared with other Pestana courses Silves is different, with very difficult rough and a lot of “ high versus low”. A Nice test for a change.
Gordon from United Kingdom
on Mon, 16th May 2022
Enjoyed everything about this - the staff at the shop were super friendly and helpful, good modern clubs (though graphite shafts on the irons may not be to everyone's taste). The clubhouse was neat and compact with nice view over the 18th hole. The course was in great condition with some tricky long par threes. A number of elevated tees give a great vista of the course, the views from the 13th and 14th tees were spectacular. Quite a distance between some greens and next tees which made having a buggy a real benefit.

Smokey Silves
Nice course but totally spoilt by the smoke from the adjacent factory which was laying across at least 5 holes. Wouldn’t visit again unless the factory was not operational!
Rudolf from Netherlands

Smoke alarm
Heel mooie golfbaan, die met het nieuwe clubhuis wel aan aangename atmosfeer heeft ingeleverd.

Ernstiger is de overlast van verstikkende rook van een nabijgelegen fabriek op vier of vijf holes. Geïrriteerde luchtwegen, hoofdpijn en prikkende ogen als gevolg bij de hele flight. Onbegrijpelijk dat dit probleem niet wordt aangepakt, want het bederft een verder fantastische baan.

The round was frustrating. It took 5 hours! Disappointing that Silves does not have a driving range, not even a pitching area ,just a small putting green! The course has several nice holes, but the par three holes are too difficult for average golfers. Three of them are uphill, between 170-195 meters. Not enjoyable!

Philip from Portugal

Solved good value
Greens looked tired and not as good as expected. The practice putting green was a joke and should be closed.

However, Twilight rate very good and we enjoyed the company of our playing partners.

Nouveau parcours cette année l’ancien trou n° 2 est maintenant le trou 1 et l’on termine par le 18 devant le club housse.

Les fumées des l’usine de traitement de liège sont toujours aussi irritantes quand le vent rabat la fumée sur le parcours, sinon beau parcours.

Great day out reception good course very playable some bare areas but did not effect game, greens OK a little slow, but more needs to be done re pitch marks on greens some people have no respect for course and the amount of unrepaired marks was ridiculous

Course in not bad condition - some greens were very soft and not helped by people who just do not repair pitch marks - WHY!!!!! some really nice holes with great views. Staff very helpful and a really nice clubhouse. We played in the afternoon, so great value as twilight is after 13:00. They have not yet updated GPS, so hole number 1 is actually no 2 on the Tom Tom and hole 18 is actually the old no 1. Definitely worth playing!

Lovely first round of golf this holiday
Lovely golf course. Not too difficult. Greens need a little TLC. These were a little bumpy here and there. The new Clubhouse was great and the staff superb.

Course in great condition
We played Silves Golfe course on Thursday. The course is in excellent condition, greens We’re true and in very good condition.

Would like to play it again, before we go home to self isolate.

Very playable golf course with some great risk and rewards holes. Tough par 5 holes, all in all worth every penny of the green fee
Mark Kirkman from United Kingdom
on Wed, 29th Jul 2020
Nice golf course, staff really attentive, new clubhouse and buggies. Fairways and bunkers in really good condition, greens average compared to other courses we have played on the trip. Tees, some good some very average. Disappointed that there was no reduced fee for juniors, no practice facilities and a very poor and small practice putting green.
